"The Rocky Horror Glee Show" is a fabulous tribute episode of "Glee"
27 October 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Wow, this was a very awesome episode of "Glee" with all the tributes to the musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I mean, Barry Bostwick and Meat Loaf Aday play the new station managers who want Sue to expose the Ohio town they all live in as something that's gone in a far-from-traditional direction. So Sue lets Will put on this risky show for his kids just so she gets a chance at an Emmy (though her portrayer Jane Lynch already has one for this role). Not everyone's comfortable with it such as Finn who's shy about showing his body naked with just shorts especially compared with Sam who has great abs for eating the right things. Oh, and the reason Will wants to put on this show is because Emma saw it with Carl at a midnight showing and has loosened up as a result...Loved all the musical numbers from the classic film that were included with my favorite being the "Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me" with Will and Emma in the foreground and Brittany and Santana in the back and how great to see it all end with "Let's Do the Time Warp Again" with Finn and Kurt sharing the lyrics that were all originally Riff Raff's (Kurt's role). Also liked Mercedes' take on being Frank-N-Furter as she performed "Sweet Transvestite". John Stamos was also great singing "Hot Patootie". In other words, what an all-around fabulous show...
