The Best Television Musical Shows to Watch Now

Those who love singing and dancing love musicals. Whether it’s watching a live performance on Broadway, or watching a classic movie musical, they find themselves drawn into the action and singing along. The problem with musicals is that many are very long. You don’t always have 120 minutes or more to sit down and watch an entire film. If you want to sing and have less time available, consider kicking back with a television musical. These shows are so interesting and entertaining that you may want to watch every episode in the series.

“Glee”

“Glee” is one of the classic television musical shows, though it only went off the air in 2015. The series centered around a Spanish teacher who took over the glee club that he was a member of as a teenager. The show also focused on a wide range of students, including cheerleaders, football players and outsiders. It featured a number of current songs and songs from decades past. Some even claim that it inspired the street pianos in NY charity movement. Some episodes even even focus on songs from a specific artists like Madonna or Michael Jackson.

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” is a fun show that people of all ages love, especially teenagers and adults. This show tells the story of a woman who changed her life after running into her ex-boyfriend on the street. Their chance meeting led to her quitting her job and moving across the country to be near him. Each episode features several original songs based around the events in that episode, and many of those songs will make you laugh. This show is so popular that its lead actress even won a Golden Globe in 2016 for her performance.

“The Voice”

“The Voice” is the best television musical show for those who like keeping an eye for the next big superstar. Unlike other singing competitions that put a high level of importance on looks, this show focuses more on the voices of contestants. Celebrities like Adam Levine and Blake Shelton face away from the stage and decide whether to coach a contestant based only on what they hear. The teams then compete each week to win the show. These three shows feature new music and classic songs from new and talented artists. Watching one episode might make you want to binge watch an entire season.

Common Courtesies for Everyone to Enjoy the Cinema

Going to the theater for a movie date is a great way to relax and unwind. In fact there are some people who make it a habit to go to the cinemas every weekend to wash away the stress and worries that they burdened for the whole work week. However, there are also instances when a supposedly relaxing activity can turn out to be stressful one when you have viewers who do not practice common courtesies while inside the movie house.

Most establishments have house rules for customers to follow so that everyone can enjoy their services. Some of the standard rules that we can find in movie houses concerns the use of cell phones, camera or camcorders, bringing of food or bulky packages and bags inside the cinema. Some theaters would have specific restrictions in bringing babies or children while others are more lenient. If you want to bring kids along in the movie house, it is best to look for cinemas that cater to families with children like Vue Cinemas. They have special screening schedules that accommodate young audiences. Viewers of this slot would probably be more tolerant of minor distractions created by children. However, parents should take the initiative in removing crying and noisy children from the premises instead of waiting for the theater staff to request them to leave. There are also some annoying theater behaviors that adults are also guilty of. This includes talking loudly, standing up often, eating noisily, or leaving their trash behind. Some of the worst things that I encountered are people putting their feet up on the chair in a cramped cinema and kids kicking the back of your chair. From then on I became more prudent with my cinema choices. The family movies at Vue have always met our standards in both viewing comfort and enjoyment.

Watching a movie in the cinemas is something that everybody should enjoy. Common courtesy dictates that you should be considerate of the comfort or convenience of your fellow viewers and refrain from making disturbing actions or noises.

A Movie for My Enemy

I am thinking of who my enemies are so I can choose the right movie for them and I am glad that there is no one I could think of. But if ever I have, I want to watch this movie with him.

“Behind Enemy Lines” is one of my husband’s favorite movies. The movie is about a navigator who is shot down over enemy territory and is ruthlessly pursued by a secret police enforcer and the opposing troops.Why did I choose this movie? It is because I want to tell my enemies, “Do not go beyond your territory, or else I will shoot you”…ehehe. I am a good person but I am always telling my husband that if anyone touches my family, I will show no mercy. I do not know yet what I am capable to do but all I am sure of is I will ruthlessly pursue him and there will be no room for forgiveness.

I know I am just saying that. I am human and humans always have those soft spots in their hearts.
