It is the subject of a lot of yapping on Facebook: Glee's version of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. If you read my post yesterday (of course you did), you're aware that I was disappointed in the casting of the show within the show. I'd given the writers a break by assuming it could have been due to a sub-plot story about censorship or decency. If you watched the program then you know imposing a safety net on my judgment was correct. There is no denying that letting a diva-esque girl fill the platforms of Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter was a stretch. My son, who has never seen the original, enjoyed the vocals. He said he could have done without the ensemble of the patent leather bustier and knee high boots. I'm still peeved that Magenta's solo in "The Time Warp" went to Quinn (Dianna Agron) rather than the more salacious Santana (Naya Rivera). Hands down she could have given the tune the deviant edge it requires. Milquetoast has no place in Rocky Horror. Even Emma Pillsbury's version of "Touch-a, Touch-a Touch Me" had more raciness and fire -- she's as Wonder Bread as you can get. That is until Quinn sang. Was I the only one wishing Puck was in the episode? I know Mark Salling is pursuing a solo career, but cripes! The show's delinquent could have ruled the stage on this installment of America's favorite show about dorks and song birds. Another thing, were you hoping Meatloaf would have filled his old role as Eddie? Maybe it was just me.
OK, kiddies. I need to go work out before heading out for a long day of work.
Keep it groovy!!
