'Glee': Stamos Returns - 'Now That's an Entrance!'

stamos-rhps-320.gifIf "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is ever remade, let it be known that the official lobbying campaign for John Stamos as Eddie began with "The Rocky Horror Glee Show." Was this a good episode of "Glee"? Who cares! John Stamos made his return as Dr. Carl in an appearance that transformed into an homage to Meat Loaf, Uncle Jesse, and the 1980s. The entire decade.

You see, John Stamos is eighties. No qualifiers or auxiliary verbs necessary. From his facial expressions to his ability to pull off head-to-toe leather, to the salt and pepper hair - the man has retained this loose eighties vibe that makes the Stamos persona forever connected to his stint as Uncle Jesse on "Full House". A persona that had him rocking leather, a mullet and jam sessions with The Beach Boys. All of which is still believable when considering present day Stamos, and especially after watching him sing and dance his heart out on "Glee". He is forever Uncle Jesse.

But back to everyone's favorite dentist. It's nice to see Emma ( Jayma Mays) have a connection with Dr. Carl. I mean, those two have some real chemistry, don't you think? Far better than she does with resident creepster and most inappropriate teacher ever, Mr. Schuester ( Matthew Morrison). Yes, I'm completely biased toward Stamos, but Mr. Schue makes me cringe. If I could I would fast forward through all his scenes (in fact, sometimes I do).  Then there's Dr. Carl. Cool Carl, the "Rocky Horror Picture Show" Aficionado, the guy who drives through a wall with a saxophone strapped across his back. Fine, he was in character as RHPS' Eddie, but it had me wondering why Dr. Carl isn't a full time member of the "Glee" cast.

Let's get to down to logistics again with the 'Stam-O-s Meter' (patent remains pending), courtesy, once again, yours truly - the other, lesser-known Stamos, me. And let me tell you with all the authority I have on the subject, Stamos has really outdone himself this time.

Hair
Did I mention the salt and pepper already? Okay fine, that mullet wig made him look a little bit like a troll, but still - his flow was looking fresher than ever.

Clothes
Leather. Head-to-toe leather. Oh and when not dressed as Eddie it was just straight up hot Dr. Carl who loves a crisp black button-down and has the ability to whip off a blazer for a quick two-step faster than you can say "saxophone."

One-liners
Personally, I thought "Stop it Bro, man to man you gave me your word" was both poignant and a subtle reminder that unlike miserable Mr. Schue, Stamos is one rad dude.

Singing

Again, why isn't this man a regular cast member? "Hot Patootie" was a highlight.

Wild Card
Perfect 10

Final score
Look, this was potentially the best John Stamos appearance on our televisions since his "Full House" days. And as much as I'd like to rate this one as Stamos at his Uncle Jesse finest, Bro-tastic Stamos doesn't give his appearance the accolade it truly deserves: at last, we were treated to Epic Stamos.

For the nostalgic pop culturists out there this episode not only featured Stamos, but Barry Bostwick (the original Brad) and Meat Loaf (the original Eddie) who squabbled about Mexican Terrorist Ants (at least I think that's what was going on) for a quick scene. And watching John Stamos living it up - singing and dancing like it was Uncle Jesse and The Rippers: The Reunion Tour - well that was probably the most enjoyable part of "The Rocky Horror Glee Show".

Seriously, can someone give this man his own show already? By the way, I'd be totally amenable to making a cameo. You know, in case you were considering a Stamos vs. Stamos segment or something.
