So. Clearly I’ve been a little busy since it took me several days to find time to watch the last two episodes of So You Think You Can Dance from this week. And while I’m used to watching in the summer when there are less new shows on and less craziness going on in life, I have to say that I’m still feeling iffy about this season. So much so that I kind of don’t really feel like writing even a half-assed recap, as I’ve done the last two weeks.
I mentioned last week that I am disenchanted by the number of props being used, the new set that seems to inhibit interesting camera work, and the distracting backgrounds flashing on the screen behind each dance (not to mention the overwhelmingly icky lighting). All of that, combined with lackluster choreography so far (with the exception of a few great Stacey Tookey numbers, a Wade Robson number, and a few other gems), just has me feeling very “meh” about this season. And it pains me to say that, as this show has been a favorite of mine for the last five seasons. I don’t really know if it also has to do with the dancers — I think I’ve been so distracted by the other things I DON’T like about this season that I’ve had a hard time even focusing on the dancers.
What do you think? Are you losing interest in SYTYCD this season?
