I'm feeling Glanxious

Do you totally love how I just invented the word "Glanxious"??   Let me define it for you:

Glanxious- adj. A feeling of anxiousness in relation to the show Glee

I love making new words.

Anyway, if you saw my TV Addict post on Tuesday, you know that one of my weekly shows is Glee on FOX.  I know it's silly to be obsessing about a TV show, but whatever.  It is what it is.  This week's show will be honoring Cory Monteith.  Cory played the beloved character Finn Hudson on the show for four seasons.  This summer, Cory died unexpectedly.

For some reason, his death really affected me....and it still does.  Maybe it's because he's my age.  Maybe it's because he played such an amazing character on the show.  Maybe it's because I had a bit of a crush on him/his character.  Who knows??

As far as the Glee story line is concerned, Finn Hudson and Rachel Berry (played by Lea Michele) is one of my most favorite TV couples ever.


Seriously.  To me, they rank up there with Zach Morris & Kelly Kapowski (Saved By the Bell)...

Cory & Topanga (Boy Meets World)...

Lucy & Ricky (I Love Lucy)....

Major Nelson & Jeannie (I Dream of Jeannie)....

I could probably go on.  I have issues.

My point is that even though they weren't together last season, there was always that hope, that...potential for them to get back together.  That can't happen now.  Even worse, Cory and Lea were a real-life couple.

My heart just breaks for her. 

I know this episode is going to be difficult.  It's very serious subject matter, and it's just devastating.  I can totally accept that I will be a basket case, but I'm just glanxious about exactly how they'll be addressing his death.  As odd as it sounds, I'm glad they will be addressing his death and "killing off" Finn Hudson rather than just ignoring the whole event or writing him out.  I think the worst thing they could have done was write Finn out saying that he went away.  That would have still left hope for him to return, for Finn and Rachel.  I think they're doing the right thing.

And just in case anyone thinks that I may be exaggerating...just watch this preview:

I'll leave you with that.

I just watched the two Beatles episodes and now I'm dreading this next one too! I'm certain they do it well, though.

Omg, me too. I know I'm going to sob throughout the entire thing. This is one celebrity death that's really gotten to me (maybe because I was helping with a heroin death homicide trial at the time it happened...) for some reason and I've been anxiety-ridden over how this is going to all play out since the new season started.

I am wayyyy behind on Glee episodes but I know this one will just be so hard to watch! Love those couples though!

What did you think of it? I haven't watched it yet. I'm postponing it. I'm in denial. :/ He was a nice guy when I met him and it just shows how everyone has issues in life.

You met him?!?! Wow! It was very well done, but as predicted, I sobbed through the entire episode. The real pain the actors experienced was evident, which made it that much harder to watch. Proceeds from the Downloads of the episode and music are going to an organization that deals with addiction, I believe. I might download the episode and a couple of the songs.
