All good TV turns to Crap eventually

You knew it was coming... I knew it was coming...
Actually, I think it happened a long time ago, but I've been holding on for much too long.
Anyway, I'm officially done with these shows:


Glee:
Oh, Glee. I wish you had just stuck to your original focus on music, theater, and humanity that made me love you oh, so much. Somewhere, somehow the show's focus has shifted away from a funny, satiric, and touching anecdote to an agenda-driven, satire-less, teenage soap. Okay, it was always a teenage soap, but it was one I thought was witty and poignant... with a lot more Sue Sylvester (Where has she been this season?) The episodes that had me reeling were the alcohol one, and the sex-education one. And really? The writers are going to pretend that suddenly Santana is gay??? What the what! That would be like if the writers of Modern Family (Oh, I love Modern Family!) decided to write another of its characters as gay. It's inconsistent to the story and a blatant push to gear up for more gay viewers. Lame City.


Grey's Anatomy:
I have been watching only when I felt like it for a couple seasons now. I think this show used to be witty and sexy and interesting to watch. Now, I feel like it's just tired. I think I've only been watching for Owen (I love him!) and Christina (still my favorite).
Anyway, I decided to officially drop G.A. after the musical episode. Soooooooo laaaaaame. There were only a couple cast members who could actually sing, but the episode was awkward and nonsensical and just plain weird at times. Scrubs did it much better. Who doesn't love Turk and J.D. singing about "guy love".

yep. I should have stopped watching after the alcohol one but then when I freakin' watched the sex ed episode, it was over. done. I just kept thinking "uh, this isn't okay!" you couldn't have said it better. sad though.

Lindsey said...

"Guy Love" is so adorable! And honestly, probably once a week I end up singing, "Everything Comes Down to Poo." I'm a child.

Thoughts from my own brain.
And it's sad- these 2 shows have, at different times, been my FAVORITE. Oh well.

You definitely have the right idea

And this is why we are friends! What happened to Glee?! I am so sick of their agenda being pushed in every single episode! Just sing already! I agree about Grey's too. I actually kinda liked the singing episode, only because Callie sure can sing! That's another show that keeps pushing the gay agenda too. We get it! There are gay people in this world! Stop trying to shove it in our faces!

LOL about Turk & J.D. singing about "guy love"! Oh how I love Scrubs!

Glee was my escape, a light and happy retreat. Now, it is just too heavy. Ugh.

Tara said...

Could not agree more about both. I refused to watch G.A. when I saw the ads for the "singing special". STUPID! And Glee? Used to be my fav but now SUCKS ROCKS-sex ed one put me over the top (and I was already mad about the Jesus toast one). A little respect please.

Jen Carter said...

Agreed about Glee. They took it in the wrong direction...BUT I still love Greys!

Candice said...

I don't watch either of these shows. But this same thing is happening with a few of my shows. Including:
Law and Order SVU
House

I haven't dropped them yet - but they are close.

Shum Girl said...

I agree! I stopped Glee after the first season and Grey's after the 3rd. Too bad. They started off so great.

Alifinale said...

Amen, friend, AMEN! It still kind of hurts to say goodbye to old friends but enough is enough. Scrubs does a musical way better.

Agree on Glee. I still love the music, but it's just not as good as it once was. I never jumped on the Grey's bandwagon.
