So you think you can dance?

Well I don't.

OK. So I love this show. The American (Series channel on Tuesdays) - not the South African one. In the case of the American version the name of the show is more like a rhetorical question. Whereas with the SA show it really is a legitimate query.

I mean the presenter on the SA version was a YO TV kiddie show host, that hit puberty and was forced to put on a bra and leave. She has this hectic gangsta attitude, a flippin niknak chip on her shoulder, placed there by some freakin nik-nak-finger-stained kid from her last gig. The only bad thing about the American version is the one judge - Mary - who shouts like a drunken fish wife whenever someone gets it right. Which is a lot - unfortunately.

There is nothing worth watching on TV at the moment. There is Gossip Girl on Go, but no-one is patient enough to watch one episode a week, most people (Jake Bester) downloaded it, sat for 6 & half hours and watched it in one tearful go.

U can dance if we want to
U can leave your friends behind
Cause your friends don't dance
And if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine

And they shouldn't be on National TV.
