    Smash Lab, not because I've seen and liked it but because it seems to be widely (and deservedly) reviled.

    the more bearable extreme:

    unrelievedly purple prose whose unintended effect is to transport the reader back to the author's third year of life
    or
    unornamented and uninspired prose?

    American David Hallberg just became the first foreigner to become a principal dancer for the Bolshoi Ballet. This news is:

    Wonderful for the world of ballet and American dance.
    Why should America lose one of it's best dancers to anyone!
    a big yawn and I do not care for any twinkle toes dancer.
    no opinion either way.

    this edit of Schez for Mao Asada's 2011-2 program:

    - good to excellent
    - adequate, not more
    - mediocre to bad
    - appalling
    - purple can't listen to the clip and wish to move on with the thread

    Btw, the actual instrumentation is different.
