An originally Canadian reality show.
12 October 2009 | by (Red Earth, Saskatchewan) – See all my reviews

Canada has had its fair share of Reality Shows but most of them are Canadian versions of popular American shows: Canadian Idol, So You Think You Can Dance Canada, etc. We have had some semi originals like DRAGON'S DEN and TRIPLE SENSATION but they usually have a Hollywood feeling to them. While some may same BATTLE OF THE BLADES is a rip off of DANCING WITH THE STARS, it is uniquely Canadian. By that I mean that no other country has had the ice hockey and figure skating success as Canada and would dare take a chance on a show like this. I think it is safe to say that we put skaters on a higher pedestal than any other country and would be the only country that could make a show like this succeed. The success is partly due to the blending of its demographics. People who love figure skating (mostly women) and people who love hockey (mostly men) can actually enjoy a skating competition together. No more fighting over the remote control as husbands and wives can peacefully watch TV together. Take back the Nobel Prize from Obama and give it to the creators of this show. Some hockey players are naturals (like Stéphane Richer); some of the token goons are clearly a fish out of water (Ken Danyeko and Tie Domi). The results overall are quite impressive thanks to great training and choreography people. The Jamie Salé and Craig Simpson performance on Sinatra night was particularly impressive. I can't wait for CBC to create more deadly combinations. Perhaps Curling stars can perform with Canadian musicians. They can call it "Get Your Rock Off".
