    Skating with the Stars; 11/22 episode

    I guess everyone else is still over on the DWTS thread, so I'll start.

    OMG--that is one tiny rink, and I don't get the point of the ramp at all. Shades of Starlight Express...

    I'm sorry...should I not have started a thread? I'm perfectly fine with mine being deleted if that's the case. I just wanted one started so I could comment, and I was afraid everyone else was still hashing out DWTS.

    Yikes. How did they make Keanu look that much like Carrie Ann?

    I like that they have required moves. I wouldn't mind seeing that as a regular feature on DWTS. It would help weed out people who basically do the same moves in every dance.

    Oh, shoot. I meant to type Cheryl, and I typed Carrie Ann by mistake. Sorry.

    Okay, Dick has said spiffy. Everybody drink! He's also complained about a leg position--make it a double!

    Clearly Dick is the Len, the non-skater woman (sorry, but I don't know her name yet) is Carrie Ann, and I guess that makes Johnny Bruno, though he's so far a very restrained version of Bruno.

    Alright. So far I like that they're being a little tougher with the scores and they're giving a technical and artistic score. I also like that there are actual required moves. Wish someone would have mentioned how often he was on two feet and not really skating that much, though. Didn't show much for his stroking ability, which was one of the required elements.

    I don't know him, but maybe he's the announcer from the original British version of the show?

    Keauna McLaughlin resembles Cheryl Burke from DWTS.

    They really used the DWTS template for the judge choices:
    Len -> Dick
    Bruno -> Johnny
    Laurie -> Carrie Ann

    Sean wasn't fabulous or anything, but for someone who was skating with a chair five weeks ago, that was very nice.

    Bunnies frolicking across a meadow? Okay, Johnny's starting to chanel Bruno.

    Denis did a very nice job with her, and I gotta say it--his glutes still look darn good.

    Dick made a pointed toe comment and a Buttonism ("Take off your girdle and let it fly!"). There go drinks three and four....
