Full disclosure: I do not watch Glee and do not intend to, so I can't fairly speak to the show's quality, but that's not my concern. From my understanding, a pop culture tipping point usually refers to a product, business, etc. that, seemingly overnight, goes from unknown to wildly popular. I realize Glee has already passed that point but I'm wondering when it will go back?
This show is everywhere and considering I don't even tune in, I know far too much about it. As a casual observer, it doesn't seem very special to have a celebrity guest star or themed episode anymore. We get it, Glee, you harmonize everything from Britney Spears to Journey, so unless you're taking on Lil Wayne's 6 Foot 7 Foot, I really don't want to hear about it. And Ryan Murphy, stop crying about Kings of Leon's disinterest, you seem generally ungrateful. I also never need to hear about this 'racy' GQ Magazine cover ever again. Am I the only one that's had enough?!
Starting today, I'm counting down to the show's demise. Glee, talk to the hand!

You know what's going to kill podcasts? This blog! Snap! You're about to enter the mind of an almost-29-year-old with pop culture taste that seems as aged and out of touch as a Jay Leno (double snap!). So reader beware, my musings, observations, likes and dislikes will probably incite an 'oh brother!' or 'ah, jeez!' at least once a post.
