Gleeful at the failure of Glee!

“Glee!” as a TV show started off strongly. Singing, dancing, pro-gay-rights social agenda poorly masquerading as a plot structure … who wouldn’t love that!?!? Well, a lot of people, but it was entertaining based on the two episodes I watched its first season. I stayed out of it, rooting for Jane Lynch to rise above the campiness.

Then, the second season got preachy (based upon the many reviews I read about it and zero minutes of actually watching it) and I started to wish for its failure.

Now, this past weekend: “GLEE! THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE!” (capital letters and exclamation point in actual movie title) came out and bombed with about $5 million over the weekend. It bombed so badly “JONAS BROTHERS: THE 3D CONCERT EXPERIENCE” made more than twice as much and “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” made about 6x more in their opening weekends. In young girl numbers, that’s about how much each “Twilight” movie makes every time you roll your eyes at the thought of “Twilight.”

Why is this so good? The plans for the GLEE 3D concert movie sequel have allegedly been canceled.

So, go celebrate the GLEE! 3D movie series’ early end by watching “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” a movie far better than I expected and, hopefully, the start of a solid trilogy that ends with the original film.
