Oy veh, ABC. This twitter stuff is just CRAP. I put that right in my opener in hopes they see it and realize that they are quickly turning me off this show.
Seriously, saving Lisa for the end and claiming she just then decided to dance?? Tom called it – “Sure hope she’s dancing, otherwise we have a lot of time to fill.” The constant, craven need for buzz, hype, younger viewers – it’s just become so distasteful. You are looking desperate, DWTS, and that looks good on NO ONE.
Interestingly, the only dances I found to be really memorable last night were Jacoby and Andy. And, after last night, I become more convinced that Jacoby will win this unless Zendaya’s fan’s parents let them stay up past 9 pm to vote. Because those children are CRAZY on Twitter – egged on by Zendaya and Val themselves. Courtney and I both got trolled on twitter by the charming little dears. Sorry, not terribly impressed with Zendaya’s Samba (it was a Samba, right?), nor was I terribly impressed with Kellie’s rumba – both were good dances, but I guess I was expecting more. I was concerned that Kellie wouldn’t be able to give the Rumba her all in front of her hubby while he was playing the song they got married to – not to mention losing a day and a half of rehearsal. It was a very good dance, it just didn’t touch me the way I hoped. Perhaps my expectations were too high. That said…I’ve already forgotten Aly’s Contemporary.
It’s entirely possible that my entire view of the show last night could be colored by the fact that the Man Behind the Curtain is wearing neon and jumping up and down, waving his arms. This show bored me. The cardinal sin of TV shows. Maybe I will like it better tomorrow.
On the up side, there will be lots of dancing in the results show. :-) Guess what, ABC?? I LOVE DANCING. Read more..
