I just have to say that, all of you who don't live here in the UK, you are missing out on some great winter TV watching! =)
We here are the originators of the celebrity-paired-with-professional competition show, most notably Strictly Come Dancing (which y'all probably know as Dancing With the Stars). We just finished, at Christmas, the fifth series-- and of course it was fabulous. But I must admit, as much as I love Strictly, I love this one more!
Dancing On Ice is just what is sounds like-- celebrities paired with professional ice skaters, who have to learn not just the turns and lifts and dance moves, but to do it all on skates! This is the third season I've watched, and it is amazing to watch their progress. I don't mean to say that it isn't difficult to learn ballroom... but the thought of doing all this on the ice makes me even more impressed with these celebs. It would scare me to death to get out there... I know I'd break my tailbone or bust my head or something equally painful! Still, when I have some extra cash, I am going to check into some basic skating lessons down at the rink by the beach... I'm inspired, and it looks like so much fun! =)
Coincidentally, one of our celebrities is the host of the show *Phenomenon*... although since it's an NBC show, I have no idea what that is. ;)
Anyway, that's my random thought for the day. I am such a TV addict... but I love it!
