1. The Music: ....."Hot Patootie - Bless My Soul", originally done by Meatloaf, has been reworked from a gritty, rockabilly hoot into a more thumping, bring-the-house-down howl with more evident bluesy-R&B implications.
4. Adam Lambert Casting:  Adam Lambert as Eddie the delivery boy who meets a fateful end, pays off dividends. There's no denying the joy of seeing his dreamy face, sure, and he nails his bad-boy biker scene. But he's also a subtle nod to the program's LGBTQ undertone, manifested in the source material obviously, but also the rainbow flags conspicuously seen throughout too.

Cannot wait for tonight! "dreamy face" HaHa you can say that again and again and again.......enough to make my heart skip a beat!
Love him to pieces and that voice.....My Gawd! He's so amazing.

I'm sure enjoying watching him judge on XFactor AU, wow he's so on point with each comment and then there's that dreamy face again 🔥❤️😘

Love all the Adam mentions in the reviews! He has really drawn some positive attention for his Eddie.

BTW, Just read a rather tepid RHPS review in my Chicago Tribune that was syndicated from Variety. The writer didn't like it all that much. Seemed to be one of those purists who wouldn't accept any kind of remake no matter how good. There are lots of reviews out there that are VERY POSITIVE!

@Dee R Gee
I read the Variety review several days ago.. Sorry that was the one the Chicago Tribune chose to post in their paper.. One of the least positive reviews unfortunately. I declined to post it here. There was no real mention of Adam and in general I felt the reviewer missed the mark considerably in her take on the remake. Certainly the reviews have been mixed, although the reviews of Adam as "Eddie" have been universally favorable, in fact enthusiastic and fabulous.. If you go to the Variety review, the original one, read the comments in reply to the review.. Some well spoken and well informed comments re the remake. One comment was posted by a long time RHPS fan, who has seen the full movie remake and made some very valid points regarding the past versions, and the newest one, things the Variety reviewer missed entirely..

For anyone interested:

Read the comments section, particularly William Ardelean's reply to various points made by the Variety reviewer, Sonia Saraiya. Mr. Ardelean has considerable knowledge of the entire history of the show, including the original 1973 stage musical that came before the iconic 1975 movie.

An excerpt from Mr. Ardelean's commentary on the reviewer's comments on RHPS on Fox: He had more to say, but this is a good synopsis of his take on the new show...

"As a Member of the rocky horror community who had the pleasure of seeing The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again; I felt it was really fun tribute to the spirit of the Rocky Horror community."

"While it is not truly comparable to the original; it’s also not the typical modern Hollywood reboot. The Rocky Horror Picture Show; Lets Do the Time Warp Again does capture the archetype of the raucous experience that our community works to maintain. It’s a self aware romp aimed to bring the experience to a wider audience. The show is brimming with references to the participation sections the shadowcasts are known for; both from the audience surrogates and from the leads. These nods to the community are really what I think will help push Rocky Horror further into the twenty-first century. It reminds the world that Rocky Horror is a valuable cultural institution ready to fill an important niche."

@glitzylady ... I went to the link & read the review along with your comment & Mr. Ardelean's. I have two words for the review ... "it stunk" ... overly biased ... but I think both you & Mr. A. gave a much better overview of the reboot & her article only makes me want to see it more as well as hear the music & of course ... ADAM ... since I'm new to this movie so I won't have anything to compare it with until AFTER I see the TV version. I think that's a PLUS for me!!
