As regular readers of NobleThinking know, I’m a huge fan of the TV show Lost on ABC. It is the first show in years that had me captivated and waiting on the edge of my seat for the next episode.
Then came along Mad Men on AMC. I love that show, but it’s in the off-season, leaving me with nowhere to go since Lost doesn’t start again until February 2010.
Which brings me to my latest fascination: Glee. The appeal to this show for me is that I was in show choir and drama in high school, and I can completely relate to a lot of the tension between the “popular” kids and the kids in glee.
When I revel in the glory days of high school, the big memories are starring as Curly in the school production of Oklahoma, playing Lord Fancourth Babberly in Charlie’s Aunt, our baseball team winning the state championship (I was the starting center fielder) and performing in the All-State show choir – all in that order.
So it turns out I’m more drama/choir geek than baseball jock. That’s probably obvious to everyone who went to high school with me, but it’s only upon reflection that I realized it myself.
So early next year, I’m going to be conflicted. Glee will go up against Lost on Wednesday nights.
Thank goodness for Tivo.
