I’m not a great fan of Glee I figure, which shouldn’t come as any great surprise since I’m probably 30 years too old to be in the show’s target audience range.
So for that reason, I won’t offer any sort of critique of the TV program in general because I have watched just two episodes since it hit our screens (and only then because a friend insisted it was the best thing she’d seen in a long time).
However, I do have an opinion I’d like to share over the decision to include a song by convicted paedophile Garry Glitter on the show: Dear Glee powers-that-be, you are morons.
Why the hell would a series that targets a young audience use a song that will put money in the pocket of a man who also targets a young audience but for very different reasons?
Gwyneth Paltrow did a stint on Glee and squeaked out a rendition of Do You Wanna Touch Me?
And yes, I’m sure there are plenty of teenage boys out there who would happily give Ms Paltrow an affirmative answer.
But using the song was still a thoughtless move.
And I’m not including a link to the video because I disagree with the song being used. If you want to see it, go Google it yourself.
