I've begun to enjoy watching Glee just to revel in how appallingly awful it is.

I'm now 22 minutes into the season finale. There's been one commercial break already, so let's say there have been about 17 minutes of actual show. The Glee kids are in New York for a national competition and in the 17 minutes I've been pelted with one "Big Apple" cliche after another, including:

1. Singing "New York New York"
2. Lea Michelle echoing "That Girl" in Times Square
3. Singing a variation of "It's a Wonderful Town"
4. Frolicking in Central Park
5. Skipping around the fountain at Lincoln Center
6. Some kind of "Mad Men" scenario in period dress
7. Breakfast at Tiffany's (yes, really)
8. Breaking into an empty Broadway theater where the gruff-but-kindly security guard (or janitor or whatever) doesn't throw you out but instead lets you sing "just one song!" to the darkened house because gosh-darn-it, you kids've got moxie! (Actually a similar scene also played out with Mr. Shue at the beginning of the ep, so you can count this one twice.)

All that in 17 minutes. And I'm sure I left some out. Wow I can't believe how creative and groundbreaking this show is.

OMG the hate. Get out of my city, you're making it look stupid.
