Can I just write the word “amazing” over and over to describe Tuesday night’s “Rocky Horror” episode of "Glee" and be done with this recap?
The show was incredible from the opening credits, rendered with the big red lips and the script done a la “Rocky Horror,” to the final moments with their version of “The Time Warp." To put it simply: I loved, loved, loved it!
The show’s story line gave us the opportunity to see more depth in the characters of both Will Schuester and Finn. I knew Will really cared for Emma, but I didn’t realize how much until I watched him desperately try and pull together a high school version of the risqué movie just to impress and be close to her.
Meanwhile, who knew Finn was so self conscious about his bod? I loved the chat in the locker room where Artie explained that Internet porn is the reason why men are pressured to look good since it’s allowed for the objectification of guys. Hilarious!!
The musical numbers were all top-notch and infused with that sense of whimsical fun so present at a live showing of “Rocky Horror.” But a big shout out goes to Mercedes for her version of "Sweet Transvestite."
I wasn’t sure if I was going to go for a female as Frank-N-Furter, but it was nothing short of spectacular. She was all attitude stalking across that stage in her boots and bustier. Brava for you girlfriend!
So what did you think? Did Tuesday night’s “Glee” live up to the hype?
