Review - Glee Season 2 Episode 5 The Rocky Horror Glee Show

How many different ways can we watch Will pine over Emma? Probably not many before it becomes tedious, but Ryan Murphy sure loves to tug at Will. We watched him pine over Emma for the for the first half of the first season and now it's back in full force, more irritating than ever.

Will, Emma, and Carl are insufferable. In "The Rocky Horror Glee Show," Will sucks the energy out of the scenes with his childish behavior which, frankly, makes Britany look normal. He manipulates the entire situation to satisfy his love for Emma and the kids get tossed around like ragdolls to accommodate his most immediate feelings. He finally realizes it at the end, but the damage is done. He's a horrible person for 90% of the episode, much like Rachel is most of the time.

Along the way, there's a body image message and a very good tribute to the Rocky Horror Picture Show. That still can't excuse the fact that the main story, Will being mean and nearsighted to win back Emma, is dreadful on all levels.

Score: 7.5/10
