So, How Sanitized Is Glee's Version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show?

Cory Monteith, Adam Shankman and Lea Michele

Just days after the Parents Television Council lobbed its latest salvo against Glee, the show risks further wrath from the decency police with a nose-thumbing trip to Transsexual, Transylvania.

In Tuesday's episode, McKinley High's glee clubbers mount nothing less than a production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the sexually charged musical from 1973 that introduced audiences to self-proclaimed sweet transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his buff, blond creation.

Glee's executive producers often refer to their series as a "family show," while indulging in more than a few risqué chuckles; most recently, Coach Sue caught a student masturbating on school grounds. But celebrating the hedonistic romp that is Rocky Horror — however fitting for the also-subversive Glee — required some extra creativity.

Dead Set (Monday-Friday, midnight/11c, IFC)
TV is gearing up for a zombie invasion, and Halloween-ies with strong stomachs will be in hog hell (because frankly, it doesn't really feel like heaven).

Keck's Exclusives: First Look at Glee's Rocky Horror Episode

Glee

Grab your toast, toilet paper and squirt guns and prepare to dance the "Time Warp." Just in time for Halloween, Glee's New Directions gang is staging The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the October 26 episode.

"I've loved Rocky Horror since I first saw it when I was 12," says Chris Colfer (Kurt). "There is no point to it except being crazy and having a good time." And boy, do they ever. The visionary behind the looks, which include Kurt as Riff Raff, Lea Michele's Rachel as Janet and Amber Riley's Mercedes as Frank-N-Furter, is costume designer Lou Eyrich.

"The Glee kids' take on Rocky Horror is a little more hip," says Eyrich. The outfits, with a price tag north of $30,000, were inspired by both the stage version and the 1975 film. All of the actors were "so excited to see what everyone was wearing when they came to the wardrobe trailer," Eyrich adds. No wonder!

The Book of Daniel The mob won't...

Todd Bridges and Jenni Meno, Skating with Celebrities

The Book of DanielThe mob won't give Daniel back the church funds unless he lets their favorite construction company — the Vaporellis — build the St. Barnabas school. I'd say that entitles Reverend Webster to three Vicodins, but then, I'm not Jesus (who notes that three pills are "a new record" for our beleaguered priest). "I don't think this will kill me," Daniel tells the Savior. However, his confusing the Vaporelli brothers with a gay couple just might do him in — though that Vaporelli on the left did dress nicely. Somehow, it didn't surprise me that Yoda the computer genius turned out to be an obnoxious adolescent letch, nor was I bowled over that Jessie ran off with Victoria's jewelry. It's this overabundance of whimsy that's turning this potentially p read more
