Trivia

While BBC TV Centre, in West London, is being re-configured, they have temporarily moved Studio to Elstree (Film) Studios' huge George Lucas Sound Stage. This choice of Studio location also gives the "Movie" themed episodes a beautiful edge especially when they feature movies made at Elstree, such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones. It's rumoured they may stay on in Elstree (Film) Studios after BBC TV Centre is re-configured. See more »

Good show but a bit too serious for Saturday Nights
10 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Strictly Come Dancing is by no means a bad show, it is quite fun and the celebrities participating really enjoy themselves but as a Saturday night TV show, I do feel it is taken far too seriously, judges can be quite harsh and often seem to forget it's just a light entertainment show (Len Goodman blaming the viewers for voting wrong for example). So too do some viewers, getting quite angry if their "favourite" is knocked out.

I loved Saturday night TV in the 1990s when I was a kid, it used to be just all about fun and didn't take itself seriously. If they made Strictly a bit more like that, then it would be a great Saturday night show.
