The Living Force
Not sure if you saw this post a while back. I don't think you're being irrational and if you're feeling this way, it was the right choice.Endymion said:Puck said:I also picked up Hostage to the Devil
I've had a copy of Hostage to the Devil on my bookshelf for a couple of years now (at least). Five cases are described in the book. I read the first and haven't been able to read another. It's pretty harrowing stuff. It's probably irrational of me, but I had a weird feeling when reading that one case that I was opening myself to something not very nice. Fascinating though, in spite of the horror.
I've seen it a few times but as with most tv shows, there wasn't enough to keep me watching. I think it's the idea of famous people doing something their not schooled in. The dances themselves can be interesting but in general, I think it basically relies on the same formula seen in most reality shows - competition and rooting for the underdog. They basically try to hook people at the beginning, I think, so that their invested in watching the rest. In addition to all this, people probably feel that this is one of the few shows the entire family can watch hence making them feel as if their making good/healthy choices. Or so I think.Guardian said:The only clue I've gotten is how they tend to reminisce about how they used to dance when they were young, before I was born. I'm guessing there could be nostalgia involved, but I could be totally off?
