I think this is one of the better reality/elimination shows on TV. It's got silliness, drama, lots of physically demanding dance moves, and celebrities all rolled into one show.One of my favorite celebrities was JR Martinez from this season. Please, tell me what you think about the show.

I've never watched it. However, I've become aware of an Argentine version (they call it Bailando por un Sueño) where the dancing is more extreme

Look up Silvina Escudero's dance.

I prefer our American version of "DWTS". There's more variety compared to the Brazilian version, which is pretty laughably bad.

Does the American version top this?

Oh, please! We'd never get away with anything like that. That's just a strip scene. We'd never get away with anything like that in the U.S. If we were showing something like that on "DWTS", it'd be getting lots of angry letters and e-mails from families and parents. This is the U.S. version that requires more skill and pose and that's how I like it.

*sigh* You're absolutely right, of course. I was born not only on the wrong planet, but in the wrong country on the wrong planet.

I'd much prefer watching the Argentine version.

It does require skill and pose, but I like sexiness, too.

Curse our Puritanical Roots!

I like the differences in our countries. I like some sexiness and sultriness in the routines, too, but I also want some professionalism as well.

I just don't many aspies looking into this show in particular because the majority of them are into anything that is science fiction. Man, that's disconcerting.
