Dancing

November 13, 2007 | Me, myself

Okay, I admit it: I had a fantastic time last night watching Dancing with the Stars. Five good-looking guys strutting their stuff, happy as all get out – what could be better? There was music, too – whoohoo!

While I like TV shows and movies that focus on one guy, there’s something to be said for variety. Oh yeah.

First and foremost, I’m dancing because Maksim has lasted this long in Dancing with the Stars. Hard body, rippling abs, sense of humor, no problem being strong minded – what’s not to like? But his previous partners always got themselves – and him! – eliminated far too early for my viewing happiness. This season, he’s still here. Yes!

And then there’s the other four. Helio, whose ever present sense of humor reminds me of my darling brother in law. (The second time around, my sister got it so riight!) Jonathan, who really looks like a guy my father would have liked me to bring home. Cameron, who reminds me of a dancing superhero. (Could Flash Gordon defeat Ming the Merciless in a ten dance? Undoubtedly!) And, of course, Derek, who may be young but all my friends agree has hidden depths which need to be investigated. LOL

Survivor has a different appeal, with its ever present mind games. Project Runway starts up soon but I’ll start watching it when the contestants get down to a manageable few. (Maybe it’s because I just can’t keep too many trendy styles separate? Who knows.)

I’m addicted to American Idol, not necessarily because of the contestants (no, no, don’t hit me! LOL) but because of the music. The combination of the producers’ twisted minds (once making 21st century kids compete in big band standards? hellooo!) and the contestants’ varying skills and neuroses makes for an always unpredictable show. I’m always willing to be distracted by it.

Any other TV shows where you find interesting guys to watch? Reality shows or even a drama or comedy?
