So You Think You Can Cry.

Apparently, I can cry. Over a TV dancing show. See my use of the tag ‘stupid things that make me cry’. Anyways, I am now caught up through the episode of “The Top 14”, so let’s discuss.

1. I don’t like their new format. I don’t like how everybody dances before we find out who even got eliminated from last week. Sometimes the person is given advice one week that they implement the next week, only to find out they were already cut anyways. Also, because we have to wait a week in between, I tend to forget who danced what. I also miss them doing flashbacks to remind of us of what the couple danced. To be able to remember from week to week who I liked, I have to keep a little notebook of things while I watch each episode.

2. I don’t know if it is because I don’t like the new format or because last year was an unbelievable season with phenomenal dancers, but this season doesn’t seem as good to me. Don’t get me wrong, I am attached to a lot of the dancers but the level of dancing doesn’t seem as up there as last season. This could also be because last season I got to watch with The BFF and I had someone to talk too during the episode about what I thought of each dance - (which probably helped me remember more from episode to episode as well).

3. I remember when I first started watching the show, I totally made fun of the farewell montages. But then I kind of missed them when it looked like they weren’t going to do them anymore, so I am glad to see the montages back.

12. Anyone ever notice how Mia Michaels’ routines use a lot of props? All awesome though.

13. And because it is bad luck to end on an even number - Napoleon and Tabitha’s baby!! How cute is their family?

Thoughts, anyone? anyothergirl415, are you watching this season?
