F@#k Yeah, Iambic Pentameter


You ask me questions; I provide the answers / In blank verse of pentameter, iambic. / I also sometimes throw in random reblogs. / The only rule is that it keeps the beat.

To ask a question, use this handy form.
I’ve done reaction posts throughout the series,so check those out for endless picky detail :)
In general…well, it’s like how I watch Glee.The characters have cores that I enjoy,with frequent iffy inconsistent writingthat needs a lot of handwaves. There are momentsof comedy that’s real, and of triumphthat’s fun to watch (the news-desk parallelto songs with dance and vocals that amaze).And then I seek critiques online, and geta visceral catharsis when I readthe issues torn apart with keen aplomb.The series falls apart, and pretty often,when looked at from a journalistic standpoint.It isn’t “how we ought to do the news”.The cast embodies flaws of current newsroomsquite frequently, and other times inventsa whole new set. (“Hey, let’s put this kid’s faceand real name on TV, when he’s inthe middle of a war zone! Sounds legit.Oh, wait, now he’s been kidnapped/held for ransom?We’re crushed! How could we ever see that coming?I guess that’s why it’s common to protecta source’s true identity! Who knew?”)So, yeah. That makes me mad. But I do lovethe character of Sloan, and if I watchthe rest as if it’s Glee, it all works out.

In general…well, it’s like how I watch Glee.
The characters have cores that I enjoy,
with frequent iffy inconsistent writing
that needs a lot of handwaves. There are moments
of comedy that’s real, and of triumph
that’s fun to watch (the news-desk parallel
to songs with dance and vocals that amaze).
And then I seek critiques online, and get
a visceral catharsis when I read
the issues torn apart with keen aplomb.

The series falls apart, and pretty often,
when looked at from a journalistic standpoint.
It isn’t “how we ought to do the news”.
The cast embodies flaws of current newsrooms
quite frequently, and other times invents
a whole new set. (“Hey, let’s put this kid’s face
and real name on TV, when he’s in
the middle of a war zone! Sounds legit.
Oh, wait, now he’s been kidnapped/held for ransom?
We’re crushed! How could we ever see that coming?

a source’s true identity! Who knew?”)

So, yeah. That makes me mad. But I do love
the character of Sloan, and if I watch
the rest as if it’s Glee, it all works out.
