My Glee-view: "The Rocky Horror Glee Show"

 

I knew of the cult status of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but I had never watched it from start to finish. After hearing that Glee was going to dedicate an episode to the musical, I decided to prep for "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" by checking out the source material.

All I have to say is I hope the Glee version is better than the original movie because it pretty much sucked. I've been told that you have to catch a midnight show with the fan participation for it to be good, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. I can respect the movie's importance within pop culture, but it just wasn't my kind of movie.

That being said, since I don't have any strong feelings for the movie, I'll hopefully be able to watch the Glee episode with an open mind. I do have to admit that I'm a tad apprehensive since it will more than likely be a Ryan Murphy penned episode which means it will be too flashy with very little plot, and that's my least favorite version of Glee. We'll just have to wait and see.
