    1/26 Show Discussion Thread

    Did anyone watch the show tonight? I saw it on the schedule, but I got home from work late and decided to cook dinner instead of watching.
    I was just curious who won?

    Team USA won the overall title, they also won the group title. Russia won the solo title, and Argentina the duets title.

    And here Nigel was worried allowing viewers to vote would cause bias for the USA.

    I loved the opening number with Ireland saluting the USA! This show will not see another season and thank you universe, for Tivo.

    I tried to watch the show again tonight knowing it was the last night.

    But as much as I love dance only a few moments of the crazed camera work convinced me to go back to "The Batchelor."

    IMO the constant changing camera angles and movement ruined the show.


    A tv director friend of mine thinks the director must be drunk--or unconscious......



    And as much as I like Michael Flatly,i after a few minutes his voice gets downright creepy.

    And I like Irsh accents too....


    Just not my show I guess.

    TiVo'd it, then watched the 15 minutes of actual dancing.

    I finally figured out what bugged me the most about this show... it was the lighting. Looked a little closer this morning, and it seemed the lights were hung much lower than you'd expect in a studio. They couldn't help but interfere with getting a good pan shot, and seemed to cause a lot of "blinding" when the cameras moved even slightly. So, I'm blaming the lighting director and not the camera crew or main director. Nigel, get a taller studio and hire a competent lighting crew!

    The opening number was a taped retread from one of Flateley's old shows. Not to say it wasn't fun to watch, but it was from about 20 years ago.

    Did it come off as if it were planned for the USA to win the whole time? I saw a commercial sometime over that last week that said something like "Can the USA make a comeback and win the competition!?" It just seemed a little too convenient...
