    Susan Sarandon when she was hot singing, "Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me" "I wanna be dirty". Helped me through a few lonely teenage nights. :o

    Do yourself a favour, and resist seeking this one out. It's too late for me, but I can save you.

    I've had a gander at a few of the songs. The pelvic thrusts in Time Warp are shameful! They're not even trying to over exaggerate it!

    No, no, seek it out. Everyone should have seen this in their youth.

    What the hell. I'm an 80's baby and I've never even heard of this.

    :confused: The Rocky Horror Picture Show is huge. The film is often on somewhere and the stage show has been going on for years.

    This new one looks as expected. A nicer friendlier version with none of what made the original what is was.

    How can anyone not have seen the original, I thought all parents put it on to embarrass their teenage children :D

    I love it now though, you can watch the last night stage show version (everyone shouts stuff out and celebrity narrators) on YouTube.

    So the series is a total miss then? I thought the casting was off from the beginning :(

    Can't say I've seen it. Or anything about it. Maybe I've just lived a very sheltered life :D

    I think that was probably the worst part of it for me.

    I'm just happy I was at the 40th birthday party at the Royal Albert Hall last year.

    6000 people doing audience participation. :D I got half laughs and half ooooooohs for one line.

    Frank "And my children turn on me"
    Me "That's what Rolf Harris said!"

    Going to watch this as I love RHPS, but the casting puts me right off. My recommendation is to watch the Bluray and also the Live Cinema Screening 17-09-2015 which is a great live performance with some amazing audience participation. :D
