Wonder if anyone will get a trip to Transylvania this weekgrin

KimmySchmidtsSmile Wed 26-Oct-16 00:07:35

More likely to be a ghost train somewhere! Derren Brown has designed one for Thorpe park - a psychological ghost train confused opening next year. Maybe Rob could take Oksana to London Dungeon?
They really ought to do a vt/riff on Brendan's death/reports of his premature demise. But they won't as real life doesn't invade the Strictly bubble.

Thanks for new thread kimmy.

Marking spot. Thanks for the new thread Kimmy

Really looking forward to the group pro dance this week, it looks great, and spooky! Brendan does do menacing well! Anyone remember that Paso he did in one of the early series with the blonde actress who was always crying? Her name escapes me (Sarah something?) but he really didn't get on with her, back in the good ol' Bad Boy Brendan days!

Thanks Kimmy.

The Paris trip was bizarre. What was it referring to? Have forgotten as was prob too busy rolling my eyes at it. 4 days to learn a new dance so you waste what, half a day buggering about the Eiffel Tower.

VTs this week will mainly be people jumping out behind doors waving spooky scary props, a ride on a ghost train, and Craig being the pantomine vampire/undead who terrifies someone hmm

Gosh I'm in a sunny mood grin

Thanks for the lovely new thread.

I'm looking forward to the pro dance too.

I liked last weeks one but couldn't see Aljãz. I do like to see him dance with Janette.

Just checked out the song/dances for this week. Some very strange 'halloween' choices...

Greg doing the rumba does not give me good vibes but I really really hope he pulls it off (plus I am holding on to Monkseal's statistic that no man has been eliminated on a rumba since series 8 wink)

Louise is going to have to shed her inhibitions for the Charleston and I predict Ore and Joanne pull off an outstanding charleston in comparison!

CaveMum Wed 26-Oct-16 07:09:16

Fiderer the Paris trip was a reference to the "theme" (big finger quotes!) of the dance - a couple dancing beneath the Eiffel Tower. Had absolutely no bearing on the lyrics of the song at all so sounds like they fancied a jolly day out hmm If I was on SCD I'd be spending every spare minute in the studio training, not arsing about on the Chsmps Elysees!

On a totally unrelated note, you up for a West Wing-style US Election Night thread? Marker pens at the ready!

EvilRingahBitch Wed 26-Oct-16 07:18:10

Marking place. I love Halloween but am a bit disappointed at the lack of proper spooky music apart from Love Potion and BOOH (even its initials are spooky).

Morning all, thanks for new thread Kimmy.
Just marking my place smile

Fiderer Wed 26-Oct-16 07:41:47

CaveMum - would love that! Buggered though that having thought it was on a Thursday I could as usual, stay up all night with a few sofa snoozes.

My daughter told me it's a Tuesday. Lord knows how she knew as she can barely tell what day it is and constantly runs back to the house (again today) ringing the bell in a frenzy cos she'd forgotten her PE kit.

I don't work on Fridays so they should really move it for me. Though I don't start till 12 so could get a few hours sleep. At what time do they normally call the election?

Shall print out a blank electoral map to colour blue/red and steal a white board from school and do a Josh.

CaveMum Wed 26-Oct-16 07:43:53

I had to look it up, it was bugging me so much - Brendan danced with Sarah Manners in Series 2. Can't find a video of her Paso though, I remember it was very gothic and she had a black and purple dress.

Millimat Wed 26-Oct-16 07:46:19

I'm away, really hoping the tv will get bbc on Sat!

CaveMum Wed 26-Oct-16 07:54:42

Definitely need a white board and some blue and red markers!

I won't be staying up all night but I imagine they'll be calling the results during our day time as polls at about 8pm which for West Coast is about 4am our time, so they'll still be counting when we wake up.

Fiderer Wed 26-Oct-16 08:36:33

Have missed ITT most of this series but just saw that Monkseal does recaps. I do love how he writes, he makes me laugh and I can understand the technical dance stuff. Plus the screen shots.

From the performance write-up last week:

"I love that Zoe has been pimping the heck out of Daisy’s outfit all week and she turns up looking like she’s been backcombed by the blind."

And "having her hair styled like an old man’s armpits" grin

GrouchyKiwi Wed 26-Oct-16 08:54:30

Thanks for the new thread, Kimmy.

I'm not convinced by song choices either.

<applies the whitening powder to face, fixes the green eye caps in place, cries like a baby at the pain>
Thanks Kimmy.

ppeatfruit Wed 26-Oct-16 09:23:31

BalloonSlayer Wed 26-Oct-16 10:05:37

Marking place!

ellenanora5 Wed 26-Oct-16 10:19:38

Thanks for the new thread Kimmy, I wasn't on the last thread much, I'm not really feeling it this series and I was so excited at the beginning, maybe I'll feel better about it after this week

I can still see Peter Andre in that awful costume from last year, I didn't mind him so much but hated his halloween effort.

Hope Brendan is feeling better smile I love Brendan grin

<tangos into thread. Falls over own feet>

Thanks for the new thread Kimmy

GrouchyKiwi Wed 26-Oct-16 10:39:56

Actually, a paso doble to the Santa Esmeralda version of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" should be excellent. As long as they sing/play it right.

Really not looking forward to "Bring Me To Life". :/
