Calm down, young boy. I did not take 15 minutes to write that. I wasn't refreshing this page waiting for your reply. And this not a competition, it's hardly a debate.

Don't give me that 'my opinion matters just as much as yours' nonsense. If someone says to me Djokovic is a terrible tennis player, does their opinion on the matter have as much bearing as my own? No. Same applies here.
Terrible analogy. There is evidence that Nole is NOT a "terrible player" after all that he has achieved. Saying that Nole is NOT terrible is a pretty objective assessment. Now not being terrible doesn't necessarily mean he is great and awesome... Some people don't think he is that great and I disagree, but it's their opinion.

Now tell me about Glee. What evidence do you have that it is such a terrible show? Give me a thousand reasons,and I bet 90% of them are relative.

It doesn't take a wise man to realise that this is some of the most superficial, silly and downright stupid television to have graced our screens.
Superficial? I have the same opinion. Silly? I agree too! Stupid? I probably agree too.And guess what, I still like it most of the times. I must be an alien with terrible taste.


Go and watch some proper television, with proper actors and actresses who act properly. Then come back and tell me that the acting isn't awful.
Having such a limited view on things is not good. Obviously I don't like Glee for the same reasons I like game of Thrones. And I still like both shows. Maybe one day you will come to the conclusions that it is possible to like opposite things for different reasons.

So do you think Justin Bieber is worthy of having that huge success? Once again, the same applies here.
He sure is. He has a crowd target that admires him immensely, I fail to understand what is wrong about being a kid or a teenager...

It's a matter of help and education. It's why we have critics, advisors. They recommend the best books, films and TV. Oh, I can assure you that Glee doesn't feature on their list.
Obviously you had come up with that argument. Let's all base our opinion on what critics say. Great idea!

And just so you know, that isn't necessarily right. Glee has 78% on metacritic, which is not abad score at all.

That is your opinion and you're allowed to it.And there is nothing wrong in the way you shared it.

But you don't get to decide what'sgood or bad, what people should or shouldn't listen to and you most certainly do not get to say whether a show or anyone is worthy of the success they legally and fairly got.

So sorry. I won't mention it again.
