    Or "Let's do the Time Warp again" as they're calling it.
    I know it came out last year but I avoided it until today because I was too sad after the Glee episode tribute. (Which was absolute trash)
    Has anyone seen the 2016 version with Laverne Cox as Frank? Thoughts?
    Without giving away any spoilers, I pretty much hated the whole thing. Brad and Janet were my favourites but the whole thing was just a fucking mess. :(

    I didn't even know they did this.

    @Wrecky are you coming to Toronto for Fan Expo? Tim Curry is the guest of honour and a bunch of the cast will be here (basically everybody who's alive except for Susan Sarandon - and I wouldn't be surprised if she shows up because she co-owns the ping pong bar down the street). Fucking MEAT LOAF is going to be there. You know what he says, two out of three ain't bad.

    That's actually a possibility. Mr Wrecky wants to visit Kingston this summer, I think it's like a 2 or 3 hour drive from there to Toronto.
    I would probably lose my shit and fangirl cry until I got kicked out. I hated Barry Bostwick for his negativity about RHPS for years and then all of a sudden gets on board and starts participating in events.

    Yeah Kingston, with traffic, is just a hair under 4-hours. You can go to 1,000 islands and/or Prince Edward County on the way. Downtown Kingston is super cute.

    Barry Bostwick is a G. He probably wanted to be taken seriously but now that work has dried up, he's cashing in on the cult of Rocky Horror.

    Also, you know there's a Rick & Morty thing at Fan Expo, right?

    I did not know that :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:
    Thanks for the heads up, I guess Toronto is where it's at. Plus I've always wanted to go to Canada's Wonderland.

    Fan Expo is a thing here too you know.. Although I'm sure it already passed this year. Our line-up is usually identical to T.O give or take 1 or 2 people.

    Vancouver is way worse. Plus Mr Wrecky wants to visit his place of origin.

    The toronto on is way heavier on nerds. The hipsters are too busy taking pictures of their food and drinking hoppy beer in the park.
