oohhhhhh Glee ruined Rocky Horror!!!!!! I listened to the songs and watched the episode! UGH! they just slaughtered it completely!
1.) 2 Magenta's and 2 Columbia's?!?! what!?!?!
2.) a woman playing the part of Chuckie Gray!
3.) A woman playing the part of Frank!!!
4.) singing Magenta's part in the time warp in a higher pitch than in the movie!
honestly i could go on..they completely ruined it and i can't stand to watch it anymore cuz they changed so much. i just wonder how Richard feels about it...the only thing i give them credit for is introducing it to a new generation and sort of bringing it back into style.
Personally i loved RHGS... Until i saw the original movie version. I love Glee, but their rendition of Rocky was like, %20 good (toucha toucha touch me and SFDF were the only good songs). I had only a glimpse of what Rocky was about before Glee only knew the words to Sweet T and Toucha Toucha, and Glee didnt help me with understanding the plot either.
Sure they couldnt say "transexual" and John Stamos was a terrible Eddie, but Mercedes stepping in to play a black AND female Frank made me want to test the norm and do what she did.
Rocky Horror Glee Show was terrible, but inspiring (alittlebit).
