I started watching “Dancing with the Stars” with the intention of learning a few good dance moves for my upcoming wedding. After about 20 seconds of watching the show I came to the conclusion that either A) the entire show is completely computer generated, or B) Dancing cybernetic robots are scheming to take over the planet. (SPOILER ALERT: In the soon to be released “Terminator Salvation” the machines hypnotize people with their smooth steps and jazz hands– humanity never saw it coming.)
After watching the first episode I came to the following conclusion: Shawn Johnson, the 17 year old Olympic gold medal gymnast, was going to win this season. At first I didn’t believe she won a gold medal in gymnastics due to her regular womanly proportions. I had always thought the rule for these young women is that their breasts must be smaller than the top of their pelvic bone jutting out of her abdomen when they stand up straight.
I felt a bit empty after watching the finale. I think they should have one last show where Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marrini compete together against their coaches to see if it is possible for the students to surpass the teachers. Steve-O and Steve Wozniac will dance together for comic relief. The rest of the contestants with be the judges, the judges with attempt to play musical instruments, and the hosts will do their best to operate the cameras.
Most importantly, none of the dancers get to talk about how much fun they had just being here and the directors will be forced (at gunpoint if necessary) not to use previous footage to fill up 63% of the show’s air time.
