I spend a lot of time sitting on my living room floor, surrounded by toys and serving as a fast-food joint and a jungle gym. Sometimes I’m allowed to surf the internet, sometimes not. I also watch TV. Mind-numbing, useless TV like talent shows… American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance? specifically (and America’s Next Top Model, but shut up).
The first season of SYTYCD? that I watched was with Katie, Twitch, etc. It was freakin’ amazing. I loved it. So many of the routines were just awe-inspiring and made me want to learn to dance (haha). I especially love Sonya Tayeh’s routines and style. She’s so funky and dark, just the way I like it.
The last two seasons I’ve watched, I’ve been so disappointed and frankly, BORED. A dance routine will be over and I’ll suddenly get snapped back to the screen by Mary’s hideous shrieking and realize I didn’t watch any of the particular routine – I just zoned out. Even the hip-hop I’d been getting really into has been so disappointingly dull.
American Idol, every season they shout, “Best season and talent EVAR!!!” and I raise my eyebrows. Some of these performances have been borderline PAINFUL! If this is the best they can get, they should end the show NOW. I like Ellen as a new judge and am not missing Paula, but if next week is as dull and disheartening as this last week, my DVR may start “forgetting” to record future episodes. Yikes.
Is it just me being way too picky? Or have they really started sucking badly?
