That's quite difficult. Color me impressed.

I'm just looking forward to seeing Cheryl again. She could dance with James Brown's decaying body and I'd still watch. Of course with Ian, we have a better chance of seeing her around longer.

Didn't one of the couples dance to the Rolling Stone's _Start Me Up_ ? I seem to recall hearing a Stone's song, but perhaps it was a different song.

I know there's a lot of Stacy Keibler fans in this thread, so I thought I'd mention that they've been announcing that Stacy has a part on _What About Brian_ this Monday after DWTS.

So if you're a fan of Stacy's don't forget to set your DVR to record both shows.

We've seen Cheryl for two years now. The new lady I'm waiting to see in HD: Shandi Finnessey (Miss USA 2004 - better known as co-host/judge on GSN's Lingo).

I'm a huge Cheryl fan too but I'm looking forward to watching Shandi.

Looks like my local station (KOCO-TV OTA, Oklahoma City) forgot to flip the switch after the first commercial break. Its been in SD ever since.

Edit: HD is back!

One issue is that there's lots of smoke in the studio for the lighting effects. It also has the effect of raising the black level and lowering the contrast. Aside from that, the cameras look good to me.

Well, Heather Mills was surprisingly good! But, of course, the Foxtrot, along with the Waltz, are the dances she'd logically have the most success with. I can't see her doing the quick-step or paso double (however that's spelled...). But she's a trooper for trying, for sure. And after seeing Edyta, Kim, and Shandi, I needed a long, cold shower.

You judges suck!

I believe John Ratzenberger gave the best dance of the night. (Ok, so I'm partial to Edyta ) But most, if not all but John and Edyta and Cheryl B., were very stiff. And with only 2 weeks to prepare! They should have been given a higher score.

Clyde is a very likable character (a la Emmit). Even though Clyde may not dance devinely, he will be given a through to the last couple of weeks.

BTW, what was that thing John did to Edyta at the very start of the dance?

Also, could that lady announcer slide that dress a down any lower lol.

In any case, PURE ENTERTAINMENT!

Decoration:

Well, I was wild about Paulina when I was younger and I see no reason to change now (although her dancing s*cked). Shandi was absolutely gorgeous (again, though, not too good a dancer). The one thing I was wondering about was the hairdo style. I love the 40s look but all of them save Shandi's were weird. For those of you who ever watched Blow-Out my wife and I were wondering if Jonathan was responsible.

Dancing:

Of course things are clearer in retrospect but Laila Ali's very good performance could have been expected. As a boxer she needs to be quick on her feet but even more important she has to have muscular legs. If you're dancing a slow dance (less so for the smooth style they were doing but even in that style when you're in hold) the one thing you need is muscle strength and control in your legs. That's why the International Foxtrot (slow foxtrot) is the hardest of ALL the dances to master. Aside from the fact they should never have dressed her in orange I was really happy for her.

I think it would have been better to get Leeza Gibbons a female partner and let her lead.

I feel much better now that I've had my Edyta fix.
And Edyta really came through with that costume! It was skimpy even by Edyta's standards. With that skimpy outfit, how is it that her microphone pack stayed in place while Joey's fell out?

Anyway, I didn't see any natural talent like Mario or Stacy this season, but it looks to me like it's probably going to be another boy that wins since Ian, Joey and Apolo all probably have bigger fan bases than Shandi, Laila or Paulina.

I think I have to give a slight edge to Joey at this point, since he seemed a little more comfortable and IMHO it's easier for him to learn just enough of the technical stuff to keep the judges happy than it is for the others to reach their comfort level.

One interesting thing I noticed was that Heather, by far, did the best throwaway of the women (although Shandi didn't do one). I wonder if that was because all the other male pros are really latin specialists but Jonathon is more of a 10 dance pro.

And then there's Jullianne. Man I wish I was 18 and fearless again. There are probably a thousand thing that could go wrong when you have four guys trying to toss you straight up and have a fifth guy catch you. And then to do a on hand, overhead lift at the top of a staircase! That girl must not have any sense of self preservation at all.

Julianne and Apollo will have a huge fan base. Did you see how she looks at him. Is there a crush going on or what?

I am starting to think that the professional dancers are the real stars of this show.
It doesn't matter who they book, as long as Kym, Cheryl, Karina, Edyta, and Julianne are on the show. Some of these dancers are becoming more recognizable than the B-listers they are paired with.

Maybe nobody else agrees, but I thought Apolo looked as good as any celebrity ever has in a first week dance. I'm a little worried about how good the choreography might be, though, with how young and starstruck Julianne appears to be.

I've gotta admit that as impressed as I was with Heather's dance, I was quite distracted by the thought of what it's going to be like when that leg decides not to cooperate. I'm not sure if this is the right venue for something like that as it definitely makes for an uneven playing field. And how would you like to be one of the ones who get beat out by someone with a prosthetic leg, anyway?

Totally off topic, but I once got thrown out on what was a clean hit over second base by a one-armed center fielder. Never recovered from that one Seriously, I think anybody who lost to her will just give her credit for giving it a go.

This is the first season I've seen this show ... looking forward to it.

Wow, Cheryl looked as good as ever. Her personality comes through so well when she dances. What a knockout. Still my favorite.

Edyta, while stunningly beautiful and "smokin' hot," always falls flat in the interviews to me. I don't know if it's her halting english or if she's just not all that interesting. I love her choice in outfits though.

I liked Kim a lot, and the newcomer that danced with Ono. She's such a cutie for 18 years old.

Still do not like Karina Smirnoff at all. There's just something about her that repulses me.

Who else was getting a distinct gay vibe from Shandi's Professional partner? Despite all his pronouncements at how "hot" Shandi was. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I agree with the above poster in that the pro dancers are becoming the "stars" of this show...

I can't believe no one's commented on the GIGANTIC implants that Karina obviously got since the last season. They're huge, she must have gotten them right after the last show wrapped.

His smiley looks reminds me of Ted Haggard. If he is, he could go through the same 3 weeks of counseling to be "cured".

What year is this again?

I sorta noticed she had implants even last season,she does have an otherwise smoking,pretty much perfect physique.Both her and Edyta have very sexy,lean and defined bodies,much more "real" and appealing than a typical fitness model type physique.

I thought she appeared fairly well-endowed last season, but then I might've been distracted by that gargoyle face of hers.

John was doing a little air guitar, miming the opening bass line of the song.

AFA Samatha's dress, it's a good thing she has HUGE hooters or that strapless dress would never stay on. Actually, one of my pet peeves is when a woman wears a strapless dress and then spends the entire night pulling it up every couple of minutes. It makes me want pull out a staple gun and staple it to their chest.

I thought Stacy and Mario looked a little better on the first night, but Apolo was close to as good. IMO, he seemed like he was having to think about it rather than just dance it.

I have similar concerns about Julianne. Since she's so young and since he's a big star, I'm concerned she'll have problems being confident and forceful enough to jump on his errors and whip him into shape.
