Well, what does everyone think of the latest DWTS show so far ? The men dance tonight. Can't wait to see if Wayne can actually dance.

I thought Jane Seymour and the Cheetah Gal (grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrowl!) were the best of the lot last night. I believe the supermodel Klutzy will be the first to go.

I am happy for another season of Edyta falling out of her costume .

Wayne better know how to dance, Cheryl is one of my favorites.

I agree that my favorites so far are Jane Seymour and Sabrina and that the model was the worst but that said no one was terrible like other years. Maybe one of the guys will have 2 left feet.
I'm so glad this show is back on - I love it.

Love the show! Yep, the model has the most work to to do, for improving. I'm thinks Wayne can't dance. I'm sure they will be voting off 1 man and 1 woman this week. Overall, I was very impressed with the women!

Sabrina was just amazing, Jane elegant, Marie's personality, will get her through for a while..the Super model, as she called herself, was unknown to and will be gone Weds, unless a guy tonight, is worse:) Mel was good aslo! Jennie, will get better I think!

The scariest person of the season, will be Wayne Newton, and Mark Cuban, will be the klutz!

Hey, could somebody explain something to me?. . .

I was surfing around between innings of the ballgame last night and came upon what I assume to be "Dancing With the Stars." I assume this because it was a couple dancing.

Now, I was involved in editing film and videotape for my whole career, so I know a mismatched cut when I see it. And in the 20 or 30 seconds I watched this show, I saw two cuts in the middle of a dance sequence that plainly didn't match. Which means, in this day and age, that the sequence was compiled from two or more separate takes, or that chunks of the performance were cut out and they stitched the other pieces back together as best they could.

So as I switched back to the ballgame, I got to wondering how a show that is supposed to be a "competition" could be made up of performances that were not straight "live-to-tape" recordings, but instead were so heavily post-produced.

Very strange. Maybe they'll start cutting the mistakes out of the Olympics next year, too.

The Cheetah girl was outstanding! As far as the women go, she will be very hard to beat. If she were in a ballroom dance competition she would compete at the Full Bronze level, she was that good. It is obvious that she has numerous dance styles in her background. Hardly seems fair for those who have no dance background.

Jane Seymor was also very graceful and elegant.

I expect Wayne to do well becasue he has musicality in his nature - he should have no problem moving on the beat. The only issue is can he keep up with the pace and energy level required of some of the dances.

Exciting stuff if one is into dancing.....Jim H

Hi
I guess we haven't had the "eye" for seeing editing during dancing numbers. I know that Wayne asked Cheryl tonight if bad parts were stopped and they would start over in the "live" taping. The answer was "No". The only time it would be stopped would be because of an injury and it would go to commercial.

I enjoyed watching the race car driver, the male model-and Mark Cuban proved he could move. Wayne is very stiff and his top half is very bulky compared to his legs-out of proportion. He did make a good effort, though. I agree that the female model will be gone. Overall, the men didn't do too badly.

I always enjoy Jane Seymour and I hope someone refers to her role as Elise McKenna, from "Somewhere in Time". Her twins were there last night and one is named Kristopher-for Christopher Reeve. She's always been very classy.

Lynne

I really thought Wayne Newton would've moved better than he did. I agree with Lynne that he seemed kind of stiff....I think the model from the first night will be the first to go.

Wayne looked like a mountain trying to move..has anyone told him he stole Kenny Rogers face? Helio was wonderful, and Doug has it right, Helio & Sabrina, but the race car driver was good too...Marie, stop with the shtick already !

And a bit of tush was seen..:)

I think Wayne's body moves just a little more than his face does. He looked like he was trying to hard to just stay in time - and he sings for a living. thought he'd be better.

Here's a question - how did Wayne get a better score than Floyd??? Floyd could actually move his hips a bit and he had way better footwork.

The Indy car driver did well - but he's European so he's supposed to know how to dance. lol

I'm not attached to any of these guys, so I don't care who goes first. I'd like to see Jayne stay as long as possible, and I actually like Mel (even though I'm not a spice girls fan).

I don't want to be correcty girl, but the Helio Castroneves is Brasilian not European I know cause he has those nice South American hips. I love hearing him speak.

I didn't like Mark Cuban at all he sang the song while he danced and I found him to be obnoxious. I hope he is the first to go. I thought they were a little hard on the model she wasn't a Master P she put the work in. She just doesn't have the natural talent. I agree the best women were Jane Seymour and Sabrina Bryan. THe best man was Helio Castroneves.

PS Doug go back and watch it again cause Edyta Sliwinska and Karina Smirnoff both had issues with the dress sagging in the back. Karina Smirnoff whispered to Tom Bergeron that "three people were dancing me and my crack" Tom Bergeron was helping Edyta pull her dress up in the back. I bet he hates that job. Keep on dancing.

Can't argue with any of the comments. I was disappointed that Wayne couldn't dance any better than that. But I think Josie Maran will be the first to go, also.

Ha ha - you could be right. Although the almost unkown male model did okay. Maybe if Josie wore a skimpier outfit.....??

I was surprised that Mark Cuban was at the bottom of the rankings for the guys.

Poor Wayne. He just cannot move his face (or his feet). I had hoped he would do much better. We do have some really good competition on the show this year though, so it will be hard to choose. Jane Seymour is my favorte so far for the women and the male model (sorry forgot his name) was very entertaining.

My favorite show! My opinion;

In love with the race car driver, think the male model should have been dumped first, to give the female model a second chance - but she was very graciousl in her departure speech. Wayne's wardrobe brings Bea Arthur's character Maude to mind, and I agree w/everyone..he did not move his lower body at all.
Seymour - lovely and elegant. Osmond a female George Hamilton.

Safe travels,
Nona

I have watched this every year it has been on and I have been to local BR dancing frequently.
I have never seen anyone 'catch on' as fast as Sabrina has in the 4 weeks they have been practicing. She, IMHO, has been practicing long before that or she already knew how. Geez, she does the little intricate moves the pros do.
Not sure that,s really fair, but, what do I know.

Ever see one of Sabrina's dancing Cheetah Girls videos? Geesh, it's like watching aerobics on crank.....
