Glee: Season 2, Episode 5 :: The Rocky Horror Glee Show

Oct 25, 2010

Costumes, pumpkins and those classic red lips show up in the Rocky Horror Picture Show-themed Halloween episode of Glee (entitled, appropriately, "The Rocky Horror Glee Show"). Find out what happened on Season 2, Episode 5.

Time Warp

This week, Glee tossed aside its usual round up of popular songs to deliver a Halloween-themed Rocky Horror Glee Show episode. The episode took viewers back to the 1975 cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show. After Mr. Schuester discovers that Emma’s boyfriend has taken her to see the film at a local midnight showing, he tries to out-due him by getting the ]glee club to perform the musical. He even enlists Emma’s help for costumes.

Sue Sylvester, as usual, tries to come up with a new way to take down the club. Luckily, producers from the local TV station approach her to ask if she will write an exposé about the high school’s performance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Unfortunately for her, the exposé doesn’t happen as Mr. Schuester calls off the show after rehearsing “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me” with Emma and realizing the inappropriateness of the show.

The Show Must Go On

Thankfully, the kids were able to perform some of the numbers from the show before it was cancelled. Rachel and Finn took on the rolls of Janet and Brad for their rendition of “Dammit Janet.” Finn acts especially paranoid this episode about his lack of popularity, as he was nervous about showing his body on stage (one of the songs requires him to wear his underwear). The attractive but vain Sam jumps in to point out that his own naked scene on stage will be “abtastic.”

As always, Mercedes stole the show with her powerful, seductive performance of “Sweet Transvestite.” Of course, no Rocky Horror production would be the same without its own version of “Time Warp” which the glee club tackles moderately well.

Antici…pation

As far as Halloween-themed episodes go, this one was decent. The major complaint is that the majority of the show’s target audience was not even around for the original movie, and may not understand the episode’s references. Regardless, viewers were treated to the delightful singing Glee fans have come to antici…pate each week.

Set List

The following songs were performed on this week’s episode of Glee (all from The Rocky Horror Picture Show):

  • “Dammit Janet”
  • “Hot Patootie-Bless My Soul”
  • “Sweet Transvestite”
  • “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me”
  • ”Time Warp”

'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
