I'm watching High School Musical for the first time (since there's no Glee until the fall). Here are my impressions:
  • Kelsi is totally hot for Gabriella and wouldn't mind Troy joining in.
  • The hip-hop intellectual looks like [livejournal.com profile] callmeinfrench.
  • The music seems to be Disney-standard tripe, elevated by good performances.
  • The writing? Christ have mercy.
  • Dancing made it fun -- the best musical about high-school students since West Side Story, and Grease, and... okay, this is faint praise, but ultimately the proof of my satisfaction is that I'll be watching High School Musical 2 sometime soon.  ...-ish.

I hated the direction in it too. It came across cheap and rushed.

Don't do it! HSM 2 was not so good...

There is *nothing* ironic about show choir!

Ok, based on my comment elsewhere, you think I should jump on the HSM bandwagon? I've eyed it around the edges with a degree of suspicion, but if it tickles the same part of my brain as Glee does, it'd be a good gateway/bridge drug until fall...

That's certainly why I downlo acquired it through an unspecified but undoubtedly legitimate means.
