Too Much Dance?

Most of you probably know that I'm an avid So You Think You Can Dance Fan. There were the embarrassing weekly reviews I did on my blog 2 summers ago. I promised myself I would not do that anymore. But I have to say one thing. Perhaps there can be too much of a good thing. I was so looking forward to this season, but it has been kind of a let down. I am feeling like they are running out of story lines so last night we had reincarnated storylines from other seasons. Have we not had AT LEAST 2 other "robber" dances. One hip hop several seasons ago and the Wade Robson one from last season that was FANTASTIC!!! So why do we need another robber dance? Also, hasn't the "toxic relationship" theme been done several times as well? And done better, at that? Altough, that was one of the best numbers last night, which goes to show how disappointing it was. None of the dances were amazing last night.

And as much I felt she was getting full of herself and I was sick of everyone worshipping the quicksand she walked on, Mia needs to come back to the show. I heard she said it was time to "move on." To what??!! What dancing production gets more exposure than this show? Maybe I'm naive about the dance world, but being the best choreographer on the best dance show on TV seems like about as good as it gets.

Of course I will keep watching. Just like I keep eating the Halloween candy even though we're down to the rejects like Milk Duds. Whether you are addicted to sugar or dance shows, you're standards start to slip and you just need a fix. But like Halloween, some things are better left to once a year.

Michelle- I totally agree about once a year for sytycd. I too will watch the season though. I never even heard that Mia left and I have been wondering where she is as a judge and choreographer. I want more details. Remind me next time we talk to ask you about it! I love you SOOOOO much!!! BFF

I agree as well. I still watch but barely. I usually sit and watch the whole thing. Tonight I had it on but messed around on my comp the whole time and I'm disappointed with the dances they don't catch my attention at all.

Michelle, I am totally laughing right now. I have to agree to both the dancing and eating the reject halloween candy.

This post had such a great wrap up. You are very clever. I haven't been able to watch even one episode because we don't have TIVO and...you know...my new calling. I'm sad that it hasn't been very good this season.

Enjoy those Milk Duds. We have two ziploc bags full of chocolate candy bars. I'm trying to stay away and save it for when family comes into town. :)

I'll eat your milk duds. And it's so true...it was such a let down last night! Quit breaking my heart SYTYCD!

Candace loves milk duds...those are not rejects in our home. They are great popping those in with pop corn.
I never watched sytycd until I was flipping through channels here in Russia. We can't be too picky and I found that I really enjoyed it. I was sad though b/c I like a girl that didn't win, she didn't even get second!
