I decided to comment weekly on the various reality shows. I’ll keep it kind of short, even though I really have pages worth of opinions on some of them…
By far, my favorite reality show ever. Although the judges are a little annoying, the dancers really are so talented. And how awesome is it for this country to have a renewed interest in dance – and not just booty-shaking, dirty dancing, but real choreography. (Not to say that dirty booty-shaking isn’t choreographed, but I’m glad to see a little variety on my TV screen.)
So here’s what I think so far. I wasn’t sad at all to see Ricky and Ashley go. They looked pretty crazy doing the Argentine Tango – she did look a lot bigger than him. I don’t understand why she was in such high heels. The emotion on Dominic and Cedric’s faces when they were in the bottom three was a little heartbreaking – I will hate it when one of them eventually gets voted off. So far, my favorite guys are Cedric and Hok – because of their tryouts. We’ll see who stands out during all the different styles. I still think Hok is such an amazing entertainer – I can’t take my eyes off of him, even when they have him being the dog (which I thought was terrible.)
As for the girls – I have to give props to my hometown girl, Jessi. She said she was from Rockledge, FL, and then the announcer said she was from Cocoa Beach. It’s all Brevard County, so I automatically like her for that. Plus, she’s pretty awesome. But I have to say my most favorite is Lacey. I hope they stop playing up her brother, and start focusing on her talent – which she has in spades. I also like that she doesn’t have a perfect dancer’s body. Some dancers look great because they have fabulous long legs even if they’re not the best. Lacey doesn’t have those blessings, but you don’t even notice when she’s dancing – you just see her performance.
Haven’t even watched it. Seems like a lame Survivor knockoff in time for the new Pirates of the Carribbean movie.
I’ve been kind of watching this one, but I have been really underwhelmed. I love Carrie Fisher and Garry Marshall, but that’s about it. The spokes-model/host is super irritating to me, but I think her awkward hugs/kisses/crashes with the contestants are always funny.
So far so good – I liked the first episode. I already like Tre, Hung and Sandee. I already hate Joey. We’ll see what they cook up.
Kathy Griffin is the best. I HATED her on Suddenly Susan – I thought she was sooo irritating. But I started watching D-List in the first season, and watching her comedy shows on Bravo, and she’s hilarious. Smart, quick, honest…I love her. If you like pop culture stuff, you should check her out. Even if you’ve always thought she was irritating. She really grows on you. But watch out – she has a serious potty mouth. I think it’s part of her charm :)
I think those are the only ones I’m watching…I can’t think of any more right now. Leave a comment if I’m missing a good one!
