I think Ryan is only just recovering from Mr Hurll's suggestion Vin but it would be good to see if there's a trend. Also I don't want to be too critical but it sure would be nice if everyone would check back and see if they'd voted on these performances with only 8 or 9 voters as a few more votes could really make a difference on those and better reflect the overall opinion. After all we're talking quality performances like Turn to Stone and Sir Duke (Xmas). Not exactly a chore to watch and score IMO and I imagine this is partly what Mr Hurll was getting at.
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds
Hi Doc. Thanks for taking the time to leave ratings and comments on all the dances from 1977. Ive entered them all into the leader board above. One thing ive noticed is you are very generous in your marks. Of all the routines from this year, only 3 of them dropped their position. Our two leading dances for this year go marching on though, with `Dance Dance dance` once again seriously challenging `All Right Now` for the overall top Legs & Co routine. Hope to see your 1978 ratings soon !
I've tried to be consistent with the marks, hence no extremes. There's one or two dances on the list that are the dance equivalent of Marmite as they are liked by the majority but have a low average because one person has panned it.

Yep GD, seems ive missed that one somehow, which is unusual for me because i only read comments/ratings etc if im going to enter them onto the scoreboards straight away. If im not i leave them unread and they stay in blue writing to remind me. Obviously i must of inadvertently clicked it, maybe during the minor spat last night on the PP thread. I will enter your rating now.
There's not much that escapes the Ryan-meister. Sorry it must be a pain keeping track with someone like me who catches up with an occasional one now and again. Much easier with someone like Doc with his three hour sessions.
I don't mind either way, im just so very grateful you and others contribute. The comments section is the best thing ive ever thought off on here in my opinion. In the early days of the forum we had tons to talk about, so many topics to discuss. We have all learnt so much about our subject. So its no wonder thing s have slowed down on the main forum board.
The comments section does enable us all to have our say on every routine, good or bad. I encourage people to express their opinions without fear, if you see a dancer having a bad day, or spot a trip or stumble, then please say so. Id hate it if we tiptoed about only highlighting the good things. Fortunately 99% of the time our dancers were on top form, alas that isnt always the case with routines, some are sublime, most are good, some are stinkers.
I can only hope the BBC keep showing the re-runs, as that is vital to this forum in my view, and im hopeful they will. I do however realize that in 2016 or 1981 in old money that business will become very quiet on here after Legs & Co have ended their time on the show. Still that's a long way off and who knows, we have more new members join and contribute their thoughts to the dance comments also.
I make mine the 20th rating for SYTWTG Ryan, but it already has 20 ratings in this table and 21 in 'The 20 Club' list. I can only imagine how difficult complete accuracy must be nowadays with such a wealth of routines with respectable ratings figures!
Your set of ratings will be the 21st according to my spread sheet. You've been fooled by that set of ratings submitted by our old friend Adorable Gillusion, in which he sent a whole batch in on a single post. See here.
Quite appropriately for today, `Sound & Vision` now makes it onto the main scoreboards as its now reached ten sets of ratings.
The link to the routine is below, please watch, comment and score rate in the `Dances from 1977` section.
