    Rocky Horror Glee Show.

    Tuesday, October 26 2010
    The glee club stages "The Rocky Horror Show," Finn and Sam feel self-conscious about their bodies, and Will tells Emma he's backing off!

    "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" opens with the infamous lips, in this case belonging to Santana, singing "Science Fiction/Double Feature." Will reminisces about how the gang got involved with "Rocky Horror." He was having lunch with Emma and discovered that a lot of her obsessive tendencies had subsided after going with Carl to a showing of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Clearly bothered by this, Will had told Emma that he was actually planning a production of "The Rocky Horror Show" with his glee club.

    Will tells the kids that they'll be tackling "Rocky Horror." He explains that he's cut out some of the more risqué sections and will be requiring permission slips from parents. The students are willing to perform the show for a paying audience, which would help fund their trip to New York for Nationals. Rachel will play Janet, Finn will be Brad, Artie gets the role of Dr. Scott, and Mike decides to take on the role of Frankenfurter. Kurt is assigned the role of Riff Raff, Sam will be Rocky, and everyone else will serve as Columbias and Magentas.

    While rehearsing the show, Finn reveals to Rachel that he is nervous to be on stage in just his underwear. He admits that despite being an athlete, he feels insecure about his body type. Before practicing "Dammit Janet" with Rachel, Kurt, Mercedes and Quinn, Finn overhears Santana and Brittany make comments about his less-than-stellar body. Bothered by this, Finn turns to Sam for advice and is envious of Sam's dedication to a strict diet and workout routine.

    Meanwhile, Sue is visited by local news station managers and is informed that Will plans to perform "Rocky Horror" with his glee club. She accepts their proposition for her to do an expose that proves the secular progressive agenda has hit Lima, Ohio. Needing to work undercover, Sue joins the production in the role of the criminologist.

    Later, Will asks Emma to be the costume designer for the show. Despite feeling elated to help Will, she pretends not to care so much as she's committed to her dentist boyfriend, Carl. Meanwhile, Mike bails as Frankenfurter after his parents deem the play too risqué. To keep Will from canceling the show, Sue recruits Carl to try out for the play. He auditions with "Hot Patootie," much to the disgust and jealousy of Will. The gang decides he'd be great in the role of Eddie. Inspired, Mercedes announces that she wants to take over the role of Frankenfurter.

    At dress rehearsal, it's evident that Finn is still uncomfortable with the idea of wearing just his underwear on stage. Sam also feels uncomfortable in his role, despite having the body to parade around in tight gold underwear. Mercedes sings "Sweet Transvestite." Later, Will tells Emma that Carl has been causing problems during rehearsals for the show, and that he’s also concerned some of the kids are too self-conscious in their current roles. He decides to take over Sam's role as Rocky and asks Emma to help him rehearse. Emma accepts and sings "Touch-a, Touch-a Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me" while dancing seductively and taking off Will's shirt. She gets scared and runs from the room while Santana and Brittany spy from a distance.

    Sam tells Finn that he's going to be great in the role of Brad, and to feel comfortable with his body. Finn takes it to a new level by walking through the hallways in his underwear. Principal Figgins wants to suspend Finn but Will convinces him otherwise. Figgins warns that the show and the glee club will be shut down if they cause any more controversy. Rachel and Finn perform "Over at the Frankenstein Place." Meanwhile, Will discovers the exposé tape that Sue was planning to air on the play's opening night. When he confronts Sue, she tells Will that he's a teacher and that he should be leading his students down the proper path. Will agrees with her and decides to pull the plug on the show.

    Will meets with Emma and tells her he’s canceling the show, admitting he was only staging it to impress her. He then apologizes and says that he really loves her, but will back off so she can be with Carl. Will then apologizes to the kids for what he’s put them through. He tells them that “Rocky Horror” isn’t about pushing the envelope, but about a place for outcasts to feel like they belong. Though they won’t perform the show for an audience, the gang decides to perform it for themselves. They sing "The Time Warp" while Will watches on.

    Mario's Mutterings

    I'm really interested in hearing the feedback that "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" will garner. I think you'll be in one of two positions: you'll have either loved the episode or absolutely hated it. As a fan of "Rocky Horror," I was elated to see the cast tackle such a cult classic. Throughout the show I found myself giddy with excitement. That is, of course, until I realized that I'd be hating the episode if I wasn't a fan of "Rocky Horror." Ultimately, this week did little to advance the storyline or the characters that we care so much about. It was what it was: another gimmick episode with fantastic performances.

    Didn't like it. Did not make sense for them to do the show for themselves. It had nothing to do with them. They're not that different from the other students to me. They just sing.
    Can we please let someone else have the lead role sometimes. I was very proud of Mercedes last night for volunteering. Truth be told she sings alot better that Rachel to me.
    Please for the love of God can the Cheerios please where something other than those freakin cheerleading uniforms? Enough already, we know that they're cheerleaders. When I cheered we wore the uniforms on game day only. What are you guys thinking. Hate it.

    I loved it but of couse I love everything glee. Thought that Rachale was a little out of place. I mean she fit the character of Janet of course but it was just a little odd. Other then that it was great. I also loved Mercedes in her role, it was great. By the way Finn totally has abs don't know where he was getting that from.

    U have a question. I saw that Puck is coming back next week... What is he going to do when I finds out his baby mom is seeing the new guy? Any thoughts?

    Every episode and every new season of Glee is most awaited. Everybody loves this series, especially those who really loves singing, and of course those who are not so good in singing but still loves watching it as if they were members of the cast. Having a TV series like this gives us all a reason for loving music and of course loving ourselves. The “Glee Rocky Horror” show was eagerly awaited by supporters of the show and the musical. It was slated to air on Tuesday, Oct. 27. It didn't disappoint. The glee club, within the episode, stages a rendition of “Rocky Horror” for the school Halloween pageant. The Glee Rocky Horror episode was astounding. One would presume certain roles in “Rocky Horror” would be taken by “Glee” characters, but that was far from the case Clearly, some changes were necessary for the musical numbers from “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” however the results were incredible.

    I enjoy each and every episode of glee. I love the show. I was surprised to see Mercedes do the lead role of Frank N Futher and she rocked it out!

    I want Emma and Will together. But I love John Stamos and his role in the show...

    keep up the good work
