Twitter’s 100 Best Reactions To “Grease: Live”

#86 FTW

“When did you realize Grease: Live was killing it,” Entertainment Weekly asked in their review of last night’s live staging of the 1972 Broadway musical, Grease.

And it’s true, Fox’s Grease: Live exceeded its lackluster expectations, but “killed it” might be a bit hyperbolic. More than anything, people seemed impressed by the fact that it wasn’t a disaster. But is that really some great feat in this so-called golden age of television?

Twitter, which was on its A-game live-tweeting The Wiz Live! back in December, seemed a bit hungover, forcing jokes out of innocuous moments throughout. But such is the tide of Twitter when the current is neither particularly strong nor weak.

That’s not to say Twitter (nor Grease: Live) were entirely a bore.

There was, for example. this tweet of the night:

From the 3-hour thirstfest for Aaron Tveit’s Danny Zuko to repeated sentiments of admiration for Queen Carly Rae, Twitter had a lot to say.

Here are the 100 best reactions to Grease: Live.
