Episode six “the Duet” and seven “The Dark Doctor Deal” of the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers came out tonight. One was very strong and different in tone from the previous episodes; the other was a bit of fluff but still entertaining.
“The Duet” features a very creative use of split screen to highlight two contemporary dancers dancing together while apart. I’m happy that John Chu the director is including other genres besides hip-hop dance in his series. And I really loved the music in this piece, which matched their movement perfectly. And when they finally meet it’s some cool movie magic.
“The Dark Doctor Deal” is a bit of popping fluff. I like that it featured a female popper, but it felt pretty contrived to me. That whole puppetry bit can only hold me for so long.
It’s very late here, so can’t say much more. Check it out and tell me what you thought about these two episodes.
