Every time you turn around, it seems like Glee has found another way to make headlines, while simultaneously luring in unsuspecting youth and sterilizing everything about music culture for them. Our writers have just about had enough of them, and yet, the show finds another way to take something that once represented counter-culture, and no doubt turn it into a mainstream joy-fest.

According to Idolator, Glee star Ryan Murphy announced at San Diego's Comic-Con that the cast is planning a Rocky Horror Picture Show themed episode. Am I the only one that thinks not everyone's parental units seeking PG entertainment will be happy?
