Other important facts about this phony documentary. Die-hard fans are called "Gleeks." Thousands of shrieking "Gleeks" answered the Glee call to be in the crowd when two shows were recorded at the Meadowlands in New Jersey. In a very American Idol move, a few folks even give testimonials as to how Glee has changed their lives for the better ... and maybe just saved their lives. Has it changed anyone's life for the worse? It definitely did for me...
So, were these actors or real testimonials? Who knows and who cares?
And yes, I already knew that Lea Michele is beautiful and talented and can sound, given the right song, like Barbs. At least she gets to showcase her undeniable talents over and over. And this is a good thing. Pretty much the rest of the young cast is also on stage for most of the time.
I also knew that Kevin McHale, the kid who plays Artie Abrams can actually walk in real life ... and even then it was a little creepy to see him stand from his wheelchair. Either you are in character or you are not dude. What's up with that, mijo?
And hey, what on earth was up with the 3D? Really? Did we really need THAT gimmick? Why would anyone want a concert in 3D anyway unless its Cris Angel performing some trick that will make you feel you are levitating?
I mean talk about waste of YOUR money.
And why did the wonderful Gwyneth Paltrow get dragged into this without the other adults at this New Jersey karaoke show? Dios Mio, what is she doing here without her love interest?
Where are Sue Sylvester and Will Shuester when you need them? I do think that Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison were smart enough to stay away and too grown-up to be part of this nonsense, smart cookies they are...
So here's the mero mero skinny on this atrocity. Know who you are. If you are a Gleek, you indignantly stopped reading this a long time ago. If you are not, run, corre, as fast as you can in the opposite direction ... protect your hard earned dolares and save your precious time. You will thank me later.
It's later dude.
