So you think. Did you dare consider the possibility other people may disagree with you? Clearly a lot of people do. So why should your opinion be the one that stands?
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. 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.

Quote:
In my opinion, acting isn't awful. Some actors are better than others, some are actually pretty great while others are borderline terrible. I have a similar opinion about the covers.
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.

Quote:
So a show is successful but it's unworthy of it? How does that even happen?
So do you think Justin Bieber is worthy of having that huge success? Once again, the same applies here.

Quote:
Why should anyone decide what people should or shouldn't watch/listen to/read?
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.

People, please, keep your fights out of the PSY worshiping threads. Especially fights about something as meaningless as Glee.

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.

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.

Quote:

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.

Quote:

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.

Quote:

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...

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.

It's important you've both learned your lesson and that's that it's unacceptable to trivialize this holy thread by mentioning Glee and, even worse, discussing it.

About your typo, I know it's not often, otherwise I wouldn't even have bothered to correct you.

If this isn't a debate, then I don't know what is.

Terrible analogy.

Woah, you've just upped the stakes with that one.

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.

Oh, you really do get stuck behind this 'it's their opinion' nonsense. Yes people can have their opinion but it doesn't mean it's always valid. Opinions can be wrong!

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.

I've given you plenty already. The script is useless, gives the actors and actresses no help whatsoever and causes them to give dreadful performances. The sings are insulting, yes they are insulting. Insulting to the original versions.

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.

So you've all but admitted its perpetually shit (superficial, silly & stupid), yet you still like it? That is not a pleasant reflection on yourself, young lady.

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.

When I say proper television, I don't mean that it all has to be the same. They can be of different genres and styles. However, none if them are likely to be as lacking in quality as Glee.

Now you are trying to compare apples and oranges. When did I ever say one couldn't like things for different reasons? Never. I love different genres of novels and television fir different reasons, different styles of food for different reasons. Got the picture yet?

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...

There's nothing wrong with being a teenager. I am one myself. However there is a lot wrong with being an annoying, self-promotional, talentless swine.

Obviously you had come up with that argument. Let's all base our opinion on what critics say. Great idea!

I've got a better idea! Let's all base our opinion on what arm says! :clap:

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

Woah, meta critic is really going to make me think differently.

Well then I'll have to read your posts more carefully.
Anyway, typos are tolerable, bad grammar on the other hand is not.
