Rocky Horror Glee Show
Mr. Schuester and New Directions stage The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It all starts in the faculty lunch room, where Emma tells Will how much fun she had at a recent Rocky Horror Picture Show showing with her boyfriend, making him quite jealous, and leading to his spontaneous decision to have the kids stage it. Barry Bostwick and Meat Loaf from the original film make guest appearances. Sam's looking forward to showing off his abs in Rocky's gold bikini outfit, while Finn is nervous about baring his body in tighty whities as Brad.
I'm not going to do a song-by-song breakdown, since it's all just Rocky Horror songs done either on stage or in the rehearsal room. "Dammit Janet" unfolds in the rehearsal room with the characters in costume. John Stamos gets a musical number with "Hot Patootie," and he's pretty good too. Mercedes really hams it up as Frankenfurter in "Sweet Transvestite." Also getting a song (I believe for the first time) is Emma, who does a sexy "Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me" with a shirtless (and really hot) Will in the teachers' lunch room.
In general, I'm not a big Rocky Horror fan, but this was a fun episode.
