Fox’s “Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again” strutted onto TV screens Thursday night, with viewers becoming entranced by the new Dr. Frank-N-Furter as quickly as Brad and Janet are.

The musical extravaganza features Ryan McCartan as Brad who, along with his fiancée Janet (Victoria Justice), is a straight-laced young man caught up in a strange night of debauchery after the couple’s car breaks down in the middle of a storm. Laverne Cox also stars as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Adam Lambert as Eddie, Christina Milian as Magenta and Reeve Carney as Riff-Raff.

While the beloved 1975 original starring Tim Curry is considered a cult classic by millions around the world, the 2016 small screen version didn’t disappoint.

Everything from the casting to the costumes and the extravagant fishnet-clad performances fired up social media.

Adam Lambert and Laverne Cox stole the show, with the latter being described as “a perfect physical specimen.”

While most were complimentary, some avid fans encouraged newbies to check out the original. “Millennials need to known the original #RockyHorror has less boxer shorts, and more cannibalism,” one user wrote, and another called it a “cheap remake.”

Check out the Twitter responses — both good and bad — below.
