Five Reasons why ABC's "Dirty Dancing" Remake Sucks

Dirty Dancing Then and Now

I remember being reluctant to watch Dirty Dancing when I was a kid because the title sounded, well, gross to me. When I finally watched the movie, it became one of my favorites. Of course I had to watch ABC's remake despite seeing multiple headlines stating how awful it is. It can't be that bad, I thought.

Groundbreaking or Awkward?

At last television features a real-life, normal blind lady—sorry, Mama June doesn't count. I recently saw this Dove commercial where they give a blind woman... body wash? Finally everyone will know that blind people bathe, too. Or at least we fondle handfuls of soap while fully clothed.

Anyone who knows me well understands that I am mildly obsessed with classic sitcoms. To give you some evidence, a friend of mine immediately posted on my Facebook timeline when he learned that Alan Thicke died—and that friend doesn’t even like me very much!

Like most sitcom enthusiasts, I used to love watching re-runs
