Season Ten, Week Five: Top Fourteen Performances

I love Anna Kendrick. Like, I'm basically obsessed with her. I just wish she did this entire episode in character as Fritzy from Camp (if you don't know this movie, drop everything and watch it now) and tore some bitches up, because some of them deserved it. And also because she wasn't that great of a judge: cute and kinda funny, but too effusive and overly complimentary. Let's just get Christina Applegate up there every week to tell everyone how it is and give constructive, informed critiques. Somebody's gotta do it, 'cause it sure as hell isn't gonna be Nigel or Mary.

Season Ten, Week Four: Top Sixteen Performances

Due to a general sense of being fed up with the show and caring less and less each week about its future, my comments on the remainder of the season will likely be brief, for the most part. I just have very little to say about stale, recycled routines, and the judges' manipulation is becoming unbearable to the point that I don't enjoy watching this show the way I used to. Still, I will not be giving unfair critiques. I don't hate everything for the sake of hating it. Every time I dislike something, I will still attempt to give reasons for it. I just don't want to put more energy into this tired old dog than it deserves.

Season Ten, Week Three: Top Eighteen Performances

It's nice to know that at least one show on the air listens to its fans. After an uproar last week over the insanely stupid format of eliminating a dancer at the beginning and expecting him/her to still dance later, the bottom three guys and girls will now dance for their lives at the beginning and then be eliminated at the end. Not perfect, but a little better. Even still, I'm going to do the bottom six/elimination comments at the end of the post, rather than in the order they occurred on the show.

Season Ten, Week Two: Top Twenty Performances Redux/First Elimination

Ok, what the hell is with this season? This elimination process makes no sense. Last season was annoying, with two dancers learning choreography and performing, only to then learn at the episode's close that they had been eliminated; but eliminating someone at the beginning of the episode, and then still expecting them to dance as if nothing happened is absurd. If I were on the show, I would refuse to dance after being eliminated. HOW STUPID.
