Naww. My brother and his wife are the same, they hate it.
I on the other hand really enjoy it. It's not supposed to be real life, it's a musical tv series... nobody goes to a musical and says "that was so unrealistic, as if you'd just break into song and choreography in the middle of nowhere"... it's a musical, that's what they do!
I like it. I think most of the cast have amazing voices and they do a great job with the songs. Some of the story lines are extremely lame at times (aimed at kids so who cares) but other times they're quite special I think.
