It promises to be… different. The reviews are in already, and they’re kind of horrified: the cognitive dissonance being displayed by people who have realized, belatedly, that they’re now all bourgeois and respectable is highly entertaining. And it is admittedly odd to see the arc of this movie from ‘the very-definition-of-oddball-fringe’ to ‘Fox television special.’ For I am now bourgeois and respectable, myself – and there may be more grey in my hair than brown, these days.
Still, I will watch Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show. Why? Because Tim Curry’s in it. I’m pretty sure that he’s sicker than they’ve let on, but he wants to be in this production, dammit, and he’s going to be in it. And if he’s there, then I guess I gotta be there as well.
You can watch it here.
