Dancing With the Stars

Ok, I don't really like the show. The one currently playing on BBC America should be called "Dancing With....Some People" because I haven't heard of most of the so-called "stars" on the show. And they aren't really doing the dances they're given, either. They might do the actual steps four times during a song, and the rest is all add-on-foo-foo stuff. Not really the rumba or cha-cha or waltz or whatever it's supposed to be.

But most disturbing of all was finding out that the sixth season of the show will include.....Penn Jillette. Now I have to tune in, if only to see if he sticks a fork in his partner's eye or makes her disappear during the tango, or something equally Penn-ish. It would certainly liven up the show.

  1. Well, he's originally trained as a circus performer, specifically as a juggler. And he's musical. So, he's got rhythm, he's got music. Now, it all depends on his attitude and how much he can subordinate his personality to the nudnik commentators, and do the fans like him enough to do anything about it.
