SL160  Glee   Whats all the fuss about?ee TV series is taking the world by storm in all its white-toothed, harmonizing, bouncy glory, but how has this saccharin sweet comedy drama done so well for itself? Ah, that’ll be the geek link then. There seems to have been a noticeable shift in recent years for TV shows based on the Underdogs in society (waves at the audience).51UyZ4S88rL.

Stuff like the Big Bang Theory has been of note this past few years, and the Glee TV series has the same sort of appeal. It’s a show aimed at the misfits amongst us, and if you’re at this site, then I’m sure that’s something you can relate to.

Why is it being written about here? Because I think the Glee TV series is a cool gateway show for young viewers to get into, and thus find other shows they will love in the future.

The Glee TV Show may not be to our particular tastes, but it is telling a new generation of burgeoning geeks that they don’t have to follow the herd.

Foolish mortals! At least finish the thing! What are the Summer Glau fanboys (of which there are a few on the YourGeekness staff) going to do for their fix now? Well, probably watch serenity another dozen times, but that’s by the by.

Seriously though, the loss of the Terminator TV series is a big blow to Science Fiction television, as there really aren’t enough 51M3i%2BHv7iL. SL160  Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles cancelled: Summer Glau can finally have a showershows about murderous rampaging cyborgs from the future on TV right now. It had been improving throughout its second season a great deal.

Hell, even the first season was a lot of fun, and while it did have some pretty big plot holes, it was one of the most consistently entertaining series around. We’ll miss it, but at least Summer Glau can get a shower and some clean clothes and avoid prosthetic injuries for a while now.
