3.0 out of 5 stars Strictly Come Dancing - The Show Stoppers 27 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To celebrate ten years of Strictly Come Dancing we have this new DVD, just in time to arrive in Christmas stockings around the country. In theory this sounds great fun - Len, Craig and Bruno picking their favourite dance from the following categories: Salsa, Samba, Paso Doble, Waltz, Rumba, Foxtrot, American Smooth, Cha Cha Cha, Tango, Jive, Quickstep, Viennese Waltz, Argentine Tango, Show Dance and Comedy Moments. So, why does it only get three stars from me? Firstly, there is no section on the Charleston, which seems to be a very big omission. Yes, there is a comedy moments section, but the Charleston is such a fun dance and both Chris Hollins and Harry Judd's efforts in the dance spring immediately to mind as possible winners. Also, the judges talk so much that although there are clips of various dances shown, only the routine they choose as the winner is shown in its entirety. I would have preferred the winning dance in each category to be shown and then the remarks from the judges at the time, plus scores, to be shown. Instead, the routine finishes and the DVD moves on to the next dance. There are extras on the DVD, including "Best of the Rest" (which does have a routine for each dance which did not get chosen as the best one) and also "A Day in the Life of a Judge", which follows Bruno on a day on Strictly. However, I did feel this was a little disappointing. Less chat and more dance would have been better, in my opinion. There is a lot to enjoy, but somehow it fails to recreate the fun and excitement of the show.

I've been a fan of Strictly right since the beginning so I didn't really think twice about buying this DVD.

It's a simple idea - Len, Craig and Bruno each choose their favourite dance of each style and then decide which is the overall best - it's worth noting that if you're looking particularly for Charleston then it is not included, but all the other dances are.

For anyone who is a relatively new fan there is a nice selection on here going right back to series 2 so it's a good chance to see what some of the earlier dancers were like. For those that have watched all along it's also a reminder of just how good some of the earlier contestants really were.

A couple of extras to complete the package - a "Best of the Rest" (the routines which just missed out on top spot) and "A Day in the Life of a Judge" which follows Bruno on a typical Strictly day.

Overall for any Strictly fan a must-buy and this one certainly wasn't disappointed

2.0 out of 5 stars a worth-watching-once DVD 4 Feb 2013
Hugely disappointing. Really. Too much nonsense chat and faux bickering (Imagine Len's silly yak without the usual `live' show 15 second max. cut away) and Bruno is `over the top' hard work as normal. Only Craig provides reasoned comment on the dances but is dragged down by the other two.

Basically the premise is the three consistent panel judges discussing the best/ top three dancing couples per dance (i.e. salsa, tango, rumba, waltz, etc.) across all the seasons. Predictably the same celeb names come up over & over again - Alisha Dixon, Harry Judd, Ricky Whittle - and most are from more recent show history (only Gill Halfpenny is a blast from the past). On disk one, after enduring the mindless chat (unless, like me, you use the fast-forward button liberally) you finally get to see the whole dance of the `top pair'.

However, disk two is much better. Here you get to enjoy the full dances of the two runner-up couples per dance, without any disruption. There's even a `best of the worst' at the end, where the three most dire ever celeb dancers are shamed. However, considering the plethora of duff-dancing celebs over the years, only the three most obvious celebs are included which is a shame.

Its worth noting too that the DVD doesn't include any pairings from the most recent series (2012).

Summary, it's a worth-watching-once DVD and not something you're ever going to flick on for a repeat viewing so probably best to rent rather than buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 23 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To much debate, more dancing clips needed. Although It was interesting to see how much dance styles have changed over the years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extra features save it! 27 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Was extremely disappointed when I watched the dvd, only 1 Dance shown for each style of dance. Far too much talking from the judges and not nearly enough dancing. When I watched the extra features I found there are a further two dances for each style hidden in that section which made it slightly better. Main DVD content extremely disappointing though, it could have been brilliant if done differently.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strictly Memories 30 Nov 2012
By Miss
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The format of this DVD is a little contrived. Bruno, Len and Craig each pick what they thought was the best dance in each category (i.e. best waltz, best cha cha cha etc). However, it's very clear that they are not necessarily picking their favourites - sometimes they are picking different ones merely in order that there is a shortlist, and then they pretend to 'remember' the routine another judge mentions and agree that yes, in fact that one was better. And sometimes a dance that would normally trump the others is, you feel, passed over in order that the dancer does not win in too many categories. Well, okay, that makes sense, but I would have preferred the judges to be a little more honest and less scripted, and Len could really tone down the 'fatherly, all-wise' act. A little mention of the scores they gave at the time and putting them in the perspective of each season as a whole and their thinking at the time could also have been fun (as Craig once pointed out when he let his mouth run away with him a little and told the truth as we all know it - that some years the dancing isn't up to much, so you mark within context - some dances get a higher mark than they would have done in another year.)

Thankfully, you don't end up grating your teeth that your choice out of the shortlist did not win as all the other shortlisted dances are given in full (an excellent chance to see some of the older dances in higher quality than in a years-old You Tube clip). That was my major fear before buying this - that we would see only brief clips of other dances, seeing the whole of only the one the judges regarded as the 'showstopper'. Luckily, someone had enough sense to put together a better product than that.

There are some odd choices as number one in each category.
