I think your summary on SYTYCDA is spot on. I think it is good that for once anyone in the top four has a chance of winning, as there is no red hot favourite. Unlike last year when it was pretty dead cert that Jack Chambers were going to win.

The other thing that has improved this season is the choreography they appeared to have gotten rid of the dead wood, and the only one left that was a dud Nacho Pop has been sent on a road trip!

Agreed on all counts save the supremacy of the Canadian S1, which had a strong first half and (IMHO) fell apart around the final eight/final six.

I love this top four so much – they are without a doubt the strongest top four of any English-speaking season – and I would be happy to see any of them win, though my geeky underdog heart roots for Charlie. I mourn the loss of BJ, but honestly, this was such a talented group that I was mourning the whole way through; there wasn’t a week where I wasn’t sorry to see someone go.

…I confess to reading your blog primarily for the SYTYCD discussions.

Yes, Charlie, that plucky underdog who has never so much as been in the elimination danger zone once in the entire show.

:)

And I will steadfastly disagree with you on the Canadian season, whose low point was not the final 8 or 6 but actually a fairly weak final 4 episode.

Not for me to interrupt while you’re praising my country, but a minor quibble…

Dubbo isn’t really ‘the middle of nowhere’. It’s ‘the middle of nowhere, TM’. It markets itself as being in the middle of nowhere and hence everyone in New South Wales, or at least Sydney, has been there, to see what the middle of nowhere is like.

Just a tip: when linking to youtube videos, there’s no need to do a straight link and then a parenthetical “about 6:00,” because you can link directly to a timestamp. Like so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKGGsMYa02g#t=1m40s

(For now, I don’t think there is a way to do this automatically, you have to add the #t=XmXXs manually at the end of the URL. But it’s still a nice way to direct people to a specific moment in a video.)
