Strictly Come Dancing Week 5

I was at a party last night so missed the show. Catching up with it this week a little worried after reading comments about the show but we’ll carry on.

I think Week 5 might be a record for us.

Strictly Come Dancing Week 4

Anthony and Oti left last week, a shame for Otlile who really has been a find for the show but maybe not so much for Anthony who was really being hampered by his arm.

No theme this week makes me a happy boy.

Strictly Come Dancing Week 3 MOVIE NIGHT

This week was the week I went off the show last time out thanks to Donny Osmond. I hate theme weeks because the dances always look even less then the dances we are meant to be seeing and everything tends to be even more over marked then ever before.

Never mind. Another year and another Movie night.

Strictly Girlie Magazine First Edition 2015

So here we are again, all the glitter, fake tan and sequins. We are on our official countdown to Christmas, for us it isn’t the coke commercial’s with the Coca Cola van coming into view that marks the holiday season its just how orange you can make a bunch of celebrities look whilst outside its getting colder and wetter!

It can only be Strictly time!

(For anyone unaware of our failed attempt to keep this blog last year, me and Anna have decided to collaborate on a more humour related blog full of fan girling, talk about Tristan’s tongue and fainting at the Heart Throb that is Kevin Clifton. Please do not take anything below too seriously as it is all just a bit of fun!)

Strictly Come Dancing : Week 6 Halloween Week

So another theme week, the one saving grace is we have no Donny Osmond but from past experience theme weeks need to be happy affairs with plenty of over marking and nonsensical love for everyone and everything.

Sometimes I laugh when people act like Strictly has ever truly been anything more then a personality competition. Yeah people like to see improvements week on week, some people like to see the best dancers dance and others like the train wrecks. None of us are right or wrong. But theme weeks really do seem much more scripted and ridiculous. I can honestly say week on week that I personally think that the judges possibly feel the way they do when they judge but theme weeks seem like there is a complete script of loveliness and boringness.

Lets see.

Strictly Come Dancing Week 5

Last week we said a classy goodbye to Tim and Natalie after a shocking results show that saw Mark and Karen join them in the bottom two.

Halloween has been pushed back to next week (oh no) so this week we have another good old fashioned week of dancing. Who has improved and who should go home?

Strictly Come Dancing Week 4

You might have noticed last week that I did not enjoy Movie week whatsoever. I am very much happy we are back to no theme but I’m not sure I’m going to be able to stick with the series if it carries on like last week.

Sometimes I feel like I missed something in the show. Most dances don’t look or feel like they are actually proper dances anymore. So many feel like show dances with one or two elements of a proper dance in it. I don’t feel people who DO do a proper routine are given enough credit over people who faff about a lot and don’t do a full routine that looks anything like it should and I also don’t like the (and never have) one rule for one and one for the other thing we had going on this week.

I think I’m just overly grumpy.

Anyway on with the show as they say.
