Trivia

The use of "Strictly" in the title is both a knowing reference to Baz Luhrmann's Strictly Ballroom (1992) film, with its underlying earlier similar plot concept of a Pro and a Beginner dancer paired in Competition, and to denote it's difference from yet similarity to the BBC TV series Come Dancing (1949), which is the strictly professional with professional Dance Competition format.

I love this programme!
12 June 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I will admit I don't think it is the best show on earth, it does get a bit too serious at times with the emotional training sessions and sometimes the wrong person gets voted off, two excellent example are Gabby Logan and Spoony. But the reason why I love this is because it is entertaining, what with Bruce Forsyth reciting his corny but hilarious jokes and pratfalls. One of my favourites was when he likened judge Craig Revel Horwood to a sour lemon. Here you see some truly talented dancers, honestly Jill Halfpenny and Alesha Dixon were amazing, and not so talented dancers, namely Quentin Willson and possibly Fiona Phillips. I loved the dresses, and the choreographies, and through the programme I got a lot of tips of how to dance a particular dance. And where would we be without the judges? The hissable Craig Revel Horwood, the sincere Arlene Phillips, the encouraging Len Goodman and the eccentric Bruno Tonioli with his increasingly silly comments, like "It's like a Robin Reliant with a Ferrairi". My favourite Craig criticism has to be "D-U-L-L, Dull!", and some of the celebrities make some truly hilarious comebacks, most notably Julian Clary's "You Wouldn't Know a Passo Doble if you sat on one". All in all, despite the flaws, this is a very entertaining programme, that people aspired to dance, should give it a try. 8/10 Bethany Cox.
