Oh, dear: I hesitate again to post on here! When it seemed that perhaps some exchanges had the potential to get a little warmed up (ie not yet heated, but could have been) I tried to lighten the mood. For some that was OK and there was a lively exchange of desires for twiglets etc when watching SCD.
It wasn't all in vain, I hope. I think that we have to remember that the programme is entertainment first and foremost, with some wonderful dance choreography and costumes thrown in for good measusre.
People like Frank can comment with a degree of authority on the dancing; others may be dazzled by the spectacle. None of us is privy to professional dancers or celebrities' motivations in either taking part in the show or leaving prematurely.
That's all. No need to go on the attack or be on the defensive. We all have a right to our own opinion. We have an obligation to think of others in life in general and especially when indulging in the blunt tool of the written word on a message board. ie nuances of body language and facial expression are absent.
On the big plus side, I can hardly wait for tonight's SCD. I want to be entertained. I want to be dazzled. I want to enjoy the whole bloomin' experience! And I will!
