Glee Season 4 : History Repeating, Literally!!


Seems like Glee writers really don’t have much of a story to tell! Season 4 is an evidence to this fact. When Glee first started, it was highly appreciated for its fresh approach towards making something different – a Musical. It changed the whole perspective of Glee clubs in schools. I really loved the show’s format and was into the mashups they created. But now it seems like the new season is nothing but old wine in a new bottle as the same story is being retold with new faces!


So there was this loser guy who wanted to bring a revolution of sorts by trying to get kids enroll in a Glee club (Mr.Shuester), and an underdog (Rachel) who was tremendously talented but lacked oomph!


 And she was in love with this famous dude (Finn). And there was this mean  cheerleader (Quinn) whose objective in life was to keep the underdog away from the man she is in love with – yes the same famous dude . 



Then there was this black kid who was really really talented (Mercedes) but was always cheated of the right part in the musicals because she always had to fight for it with the heavily talented underdog! And there was a stud (Puck,Mother of god, was he a hunk!) who was rebellious and stupid but also equally famous!



And now check this out. In Season 4 again comes a loser dude (the formerly famous Finn who is at a cul-de-sac both personally and professionally) who wants to “revoltionize” Glee club (seriously now!). Enter underdog junior (Marley) with a crush on famous dude junior (Ryder).



 Cheerleader Kitty, who formerly had a thing for the rebellious- stupid- famous Jake (Puck’s half- brother, no claps please!!), also likes the famous dude junior which is why she plays some really mean tricks with Marley (Gag reflex episode grossed me out totally!). And then there is a black kid (Wade Adams) who is also cheated of some really great roles because he is “unique” (phfft!). I don’t want to forget to mention this – Brittany quips, “welcome back Mercedes” to Wade this season..(ROFLOCOPTER)!



So I am predicting that as the season progresses, there will be “new” characters who can replace the old Santana, Artie, Brittany, Blaine, Kurt, Tina and whoever was left in Season 3! I think it’s time to pull the curtains down for the show once and for all now. This would strategically avoid Glee from the abyss it is falling into and also save it from contending with something as glamorous and as huge as Smash. Time to say Bye Bye “Gleeks”.. The term doesn’t sound cool either now.. Does it? ;)

Steven Eckholdt – The most Hate-able Person on TV

Ok so it’s not about his personality to start with, but the characters he has played over the years, that have made him the most hateable TV person on my list. I know he is handsome and totally metrosexual – looking, but hey, nobody coerced him into playing the two worst characters on Television. So here goes, the “ that third guy who broke the cute couple up” roles he played:
Mark Robinson – FRIENDS:

Who doesn’t remember his character Mark Robinson from FRIENDS? We all hated him, when he got Rachel an interview at Bloomingdale’s, we hated him when Rachel hugged him leaving Ross cold after her interview, we hated him when he got her Chinese food right after Ross & Rachel’s situation which later got very famous as the “we were on a break” scene, we hated him when he told Rachel he had a huge crush on her but didn’t act upon it because she was with Ross then, we hated him and this was the last nail in the coffin– when he took Rachel out and hurt Ross (Unintentional? I don’t think so!)…

The Most Important Groupies of All Times

The Rock n Roll storm of the 60s was a much needed revolution in the music history which gave us many great bands and musicians the world segments as “legends” today. While we are all well aware of how much this time period was unequivocally the best time to “be discovered” in the music industry, I wonder how many of us truly notice what kind of opulence being discovered led to.Money – check, villa – check, vanity, private jets – check, fame – check, women – check oh check!

Women – as musicians were a small group compared to the behemoth group of male musicians in the 60s and the 70s. Pattie Smith, Stevie Nicks and a handful more made their mark in the male dominated music industry. Also behind the veil were the groupie clan that slowly and steadily made their ways into the rainbow lives of artists – satisfying the egos and “other things” these men were “in need” of. Being a groupie was more than legitimate if these girls (also men, yes there were male groupies also ) were of the right…

Badassery, thy name is Ma Anand Sheela! (A No spoilers post)

When Netflix’s recommendation displayed the docu-series “Wild,Wild Country”, I was uninterested. One of my friends had enlightened me about Osho Rajneesh’s teachings when we were still teenagers. The bits and pieces of the cult, she had gathered from one of the neighbour uncles, who at the time I think had no filter as to what to be shared with teenagers and what not, didn’t sound sound to me. According to her information, Osho was a spiritual guru who encouraged people to find happiness via physical means! At the time, I wasn’t sure she even knew what she was talking about! But anyways, that was the picture I had in mind of Osho. As a grown up, I am no longer a prude but the image of Osho hadn’t changed until recently.



I started watching the series because it had tons of hippie culture shades. I have been fascinated with hippies and their liberated way of living ever since I watched Woodstock documentary. So, the summary as was on Netflix, got me a bit curious and so I started. And …
