"Dancing..."takes on an old issue. Is network television a machine with no conscience which prostitutes artistic talent while pandering to the audience under the pretense of offering quality entertainment for the sole purpose of seducing them into buying products while appeasing advertisers? Well, of course it is. The matter, as dealt with by "Dancing...", focuses on an African-American sitcom and staff, mixes some light romance and a spritz of comedy with it's core drama to a generally entertaining result in spite of some peculiar camera effects, some black and white explanations which come out of no where, and a stuttering flow between the story and some miscellaneous subplots. Enjoyable but nothing new.
