So Disappointed

Since we moved here about 8 months ago, Cory hooked up our tv to the digital tv box that you can buy at the store. Since doing that, we have had 4 channels. As much as I loved the year that we went without any channels on tv, it has been nice to be able to watch the news (well, I actually don't think I was missing anything there, if anything it is just a harsh reality of what is really going on outside of the bubble world that I live in). I don't watch tons of television, but I do have my favorite shows. One of them being Extreme Home Makeover (we watch it as a family on Sunday night and it makes me cry every time). I also love White Collar, although it is on a channel that we don't have so Cory and I watch it on Hulu. But, the show that I just can't miss is So You Think You Can Dance....at least it used to be, because today I am officially declaring my disgust and rejection of one of my all-time favorite shows.

You have no idea how much I loved this show when it first came out. You see, I have a dream of being a dancer. I LOVED to watch the dances and I was totally in love with every dance that Mia Michael choreographed. I would never miss a show and I would get all giddy when the show started. I don't know if it happened because of my vacation from tv (I may just be more sensitive to it now), or if it just all of the sudden went a different direction, but I swear that the name should now be changed to "So You Think You Can Dance Pornographic?" From the costumes they are wearing to the dances they are performing, I am totally disgusted and put off. Maybe I am being a little too harsh, but I just cannot support a show that portrays dancing in such a seductive and loose way. I really hope that it changes, but I have a feeling that it won't. Has anyone else noticed this? Or is it just me?

I haven't seen it for a while, but I agree in general for t.v. I feel the same way about Dancing with the Stars. You just can't be too safe with what you expose yourself too.

I feel the same way Greg and I used to watch it we just liked the auditions which were really good... Yes it has gotten really bad at what they dance now...... So sad... Cause dancing should be beautiful....:)

I've never watched So you think you can dance, but agree with other comments... it's SO hard to find decent television. I have one, maybe two shows that I like to watch regularly... that I feel comfortable watching regularly. Most everything out there is too smutty for my taste.

I totally agree. I am like you Melissa and loved Mia Michaels for some reason she is not choreographing this season and the dances have been awful. I use to always have my favorite dances. This year and can't even remember one that I want to go back and watch.

We haven't watched since the Top 20 was picked, but it's on our DVR. I have seen a downward trend, though, in the seductive nature of the show. Ugh.

Nigel's comments don't help- he is a creepy old man!
