The Eerie Similarities Between Glee and Rocky Horror Characters

In tonight’s episode of Glee, the New Directions crew performs the Rocky Horror Picture Show for the school musical. The casting (Rachel as Janet, Finn as Brad, Sam as Adonis-like Rocky) seems like a no-brainer, like Glee has always just been Dr. Frank-N-Furter's castle transferred to a suburban high school. We went through the two sets of characters and noted the eerie parallels between the Gleeks and their assigned roles in tonight's episode; although in a couple of instances, we picked a McKinley-ite who we thought would be better suited to the part. If you're going to do the "Time Warp" again, do it right!
