No, but probably not more than a few weeks down the road. :D

edit: I think it's the week after next, seeing as the release date of that album is set for Oct 19.

Oh gods, me too! I love RHPS! Here's hoping they show Puck in a garter belt and fishnets!

I finally got around to watching the show. I got pretty emotional about Kurt's dad.

My only issue with the singing was Mercedes's song in the church. Her voice isn't that high.

Continuing my trend of starting to watch the episode a few minutes late, I missed the very beginning (Puck is in jail WHAT?). I really enjoyed it besides that though. Sam's song was really cute, or as Santana said "Freaking adorable." I liked Santana getting to sing again, although the dance moves... eh... Mike and Tina did a great dance number and it was really cute too. I wonder if he really does have an absolutely terrible voice, though, and some of her notes seemed really off. Kurt's song and dance were... creepy. I can't really describe it other than that. Maybe if I had seen what it was from I'd like it more, but as it was all I could think was "You ruined a tuxedo... maybe 2... for this? Really?"

As far as the episode went...

Is Sam ***? I really thought he was going to be Kurt's boyfriend... still kinda think that... but...
On the same vein, it makes me feel sorry for Quinn if Sam is ***, as she's getting jerked around.
Also, I'm starting to think that *** is deliberately portrayed as bad in Glee. Sorry if it's a duh moment, but both Artie and Finn had terrible first-time sexual experiences... or at least terrible feelings immediately after, Quinn got pregnant, Terri fakes being pregnant, etc etc. We really haven't had any good examples of "successful" sexual relationships in Glee. It's basically, if you have ***, bad things happen.

Also, I totally went "awwww :-(" with Brittany and the meatball at the end. My girlfriend went "Ew!" Apparently I find sticking your face in food cute and she finds it gross!

I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing to portray *** in high school as bad, at least for this show.

I really liked this episode though. I enjoyed most of the songs, enjoyed watching different relationships (both romantic and not) emerge, etc.

But dear god, I am so looking forward to next episode (why is it in 2 weeks? >_<).

Why is this? I mean, there are obviously risks for having high schoolers sexing each other up, but Glee is goofy to the point of being over-the-top quite often so the only argument for this I could think of ("Kids watch this show!") seems moot. The show itself has a lot of mature themes already. They've had pot, booze, bullying, teenage pregnancy, homophobia, getting high on laughing gas, ************* *** has been portrayed too, but the results always seem negative.

ME TOO! RHPS is awesome. Sam as Rocky, Finn as Brad? YES! My girlfriend hasn't seen the musical yet though... I need to see if there's a midnight showing around Gainesville...

So, I finally got around to watching it.

I liked it ok. Tina and other aisan's duet was cute.

The subject matter itself was incredibly emotional, but the songs ruined it. And not because the singing was bad - but because it was TOO good. A total lack of emotion or change in the songs made it ruined. When people are upset of desperate, they don't sing better than ever - they get raw, crackly, and emotional. NONE of that came through.


I wanted to address this from last week. While the other kids were sad about Kurt's dad, I don't think they were quite as emotional as Kurt, and when Kurt did "I want to hold your hand," his voice was raw, filled with emotion, and I just wanted to cry for him. He was amazing, and I don't think anyone gave him enough credit in this thread for that. So far this season, this song is my absolute favorite, not because I like the song, but because of the way he sang it and the sweet spin he put on it.

Ah, Rocky Horror. Unlike usual, I managed to watch the entire Glee episode without missing the first 5-10 minutes. Huzzah!

Music: Pretty good overall. I actually really enjoyed Mercedes' take on Frank. Sang the Sweet Transvestite song really well, despite cutting out the "Transexual" word. Time Warp was really awesome. John Stamos did a pretty good job on his song. While I liked Touch-a touch-a Touch-Me, I feel like Emma has the weakest voice. Dammit, Janet was good, but I felt the dance moves were a little too hectic.

RHPS: I found myself cringing every time they changed lines. Some really seemed... unnecessary. Touch-a changed some that seemed pretty tame, but even then it still pushed the limit a bit in how much they could show on TV, IMO. If I had never seen RHPS I think I would have hated this episode. I think Will explained it really well at the end - it is, after all, a cult hit. Lots of people won't like it. And while I understand editing it a bit for cable... eh, it just kinda took away that magic the original had. Still sang along with almost every song, though!

Characters: WILL IS A DOUCHE. That was the over-arching theme I took away from it. Even at the end, when he was "apologizing," he acted like a total jerk... "our feelings for each other..." GET OVER IT. He reminds me of a teenager himself. Sue's lines, as always, were pretty funny. Sam was a bit more hardcore in his mentality than that I had hoped for, and I was really hoping he would have had more screentime in the play. Kurt was a freaking awesome Riff Raff.

Overall? I enjoyed it. Not going to make my top 3 episodes, but maybe sneaks in as number 5.

And next week?
Puck is back!!!

I don't remember all that they changed, but I was not at all surprised they changed "heavy petting" and "seat wetting." Smiley: lol

It was ok. I was totally hoping they would put Sue in the role of Frank. That would have been freaking awesome. Mercedes had the voice, but changing Transexual to Sensational? Please. Smiley: rolleyes

Science Fiction was done really well in the beginning. That was awesome, and it got me super excited about the episode. But I sort of felt the episode was a let down.

I'm glad I didn't pre-order the music, honestly. I have the original sound track already, and it's better.

Also: I was glad to hear Emma sing, I thought she did the song really well. I like her voice. Or maybe I just really love Emma. I don't know why, but she's probably one of my favorite characters. Smiley: lol

I was very very very disappointed that QUINN did Magenta in Time Warp. Santana could've totally nailed that, and they didn't even split it up like they did the Columbia part for Tina and Brittany! What the ****??? And Tina's Columbia... Smiley: facepalm

See, "heavy petting" seems really tame to me. It's quite the dated term - perhaps it was more edgy in the 70s, but heavy petting is hardly the bees' knees now.

True, that was a cringe-worthy moment.

I thought her character was PERFECT for the song. Singing-wise... eh... but then again, not like Susan Sarandon's voice was fantastic either.

Completely agree on both of these!

Agreed. I didn't think the episode was that bad, but honestly all it made me do was want to actually watch the real thing again (it has been a few years...).

I was thinking more to make the song make sense, but I was tired when I wrote that. Smiley: lol I can't remember exactly what they changed it to.

Yeah, I looked at my husband and said, "You know this just makes me want to watch the orignal now, right?"

I wish I could go to a theater and see it.

Other than that though, a quick Googling doesn't find any showings :(.

They appear to be showing this in Oz one week behind the Americans. Smiley: frown

Those word substitutions seem really unnecessary when they recently had a ******* necking scene on a bed, with the inference that more than just necking happened between the two.

The RHPS glee was the first one I watched. I figured that as long as it was centered around something I love, it would be tolerable.

I was sorely mistaken.

Not only did they alter lyrics that were originally fairly tame, they took, in my opinion, too much liberty with the songs composition in general. Everything seemed out of time and off pitch, it was truly terrifying.

The only saving grace was when the teacher guy was shirtless.

I thought their rendition of Dammit, Janet was good. The rest was meh.

And how can you have Meat Loaf do a cameo in a a Rocky Horror episode & NOT have him sing SOMETHING?!

Sacrilege!
