No, I was making a lame attempt at snarkiness...I consider the posts here more entertaining than the skating, for whatever that is worth!
I don't know what kind of skates you bought, but just like ice skates, tehre are many different degrees of quality. Freestyle skates have a huge toe stop that works as well as a toe pick. Roller blades will work a lot better for you than quads, especially if you get PicFrames, which are designed to mimic figure skates.
IMO, Dick Button's comment to Bethenny was priceless "Bend ze knees, five dollars please." That alone made the show worth watching. Has anyone ever had a lesson in which they were not asked at least once to bend ze knees more? All I could think the whole time she was skating was "BEND YOUR KNEES!"
I was also sorry to see Sean go. I really thought she was making great progress. The music was so fast that she didn't have time to recover from that first fall, which is what caused the second fall. I give her a lot of credit for continuing the way she did, but I suspect that she may be a bit relieved to be done.
Dick Button's odd comments and mismatched number topped "The Soup" show this week. Didn't make him look good at all.
Don't see a clip available yet.
Brooke and Keauna seem especially ditzy to me. I don't know if that's the way they actually are or if it's the editing.
So apparently this week Tanith and Ben will be skating? I think they should get more pros on the show-- like 3 or 4 performances an episode from actual skaters. They certainly have time for it in a 90 minute show that otherwise includes about 9 minutes of skating.
Putting out an early plea for detailed pbp tonite. Pats/Jets are taking over on ABC in our market.

You are getting Monday Night Football on ABC?? It's only on ESPN around here! I'll have to check because a friend of mine won't pay for cable and he's always complaining because he can't get the "really good games anymore. "
Time for a new thread for week three.
I finally got around to watching last week's show. (How dumb is this....I was babysitting with my 6 month old grandson so that his parents could GO to the show, and I was so busy, making sure they could be there that it never occurred to me to watch!)
Jonny made me smile from the moment he came on the screen. He is really out there giving it his all. And, of course, it was pretty fun to see my daughter in the audience!
DH - and that's just my opinion
His parents went to Skating with the Stars? What did they think?
Use Yah Blinkah!
Watched the video of last week.. OMG... it's worse then I possibly imagined! Can I stand tonight.
