Maks has to be the Dancing with the Stars professional who comes closest to giving us an idea how RA would look on the dancefloor...similar only as another DTH..that's where the similarity ends..Maks you see fervently believes he's God's gift to women..not a scintilla of humility can be detected in him...but he certainly looks fine on the dance floor..
His partner is the captain of the USA's womens' soccer team..as a life-long athlete, she claims to have difficulty thinking of herself as sexy..their 3rd week cha-cha-cha..

[UPDATE: Ep 1 of Once Upon a Time has been rescheduled for Oct 23 due to playoff games.]
After weeks of the vast wasteland which was tv programming once Game of Thrones I had ended, the new fall lineup of shows is upon us. Never enough time to check all of them out, therefore am happy to see particular websites where they're explained in detail and reviewed. So far, the two that sound most interesting to me are Showtime's 'Homeland' and ABC's 'Once Upon a Time'. I know dh is keenly interested in the first as well, but very much doubt he'd find anything to his liking in the second series which is a fantasy series digging into Childrens' Fairytale characters in a C21 setting. One website that delved into Once Upon a Time recommended sipping on a cup of tea while watching...therefore(review below)
Ep 1 of Homeland proved to be as entertaining as we expected. Marine Nicholas Brodie has returned home after 8 yrs imprisoned by alQaeda. His scar ravaged chest & back attest to that fact. First episode was very exciting - the female CIA operative is hot on his trail trying to find evidence to prove he was actually turned by his captives and sent back to inflict what tragedy on his homeland?? Yikes! As in the case of Lucas North, I'm hopeful by the final ep we'll learn that all is not what it seems - only this time hoping our hero will be proven to be just that.
One review of 'Once Upon a Time':
Created/produced/written by former LOST producers/writers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis, with writer/producer and sci-fi icon Jane Espenson (Buffy, BSG, Warehouse 13).
Once Upon a Time is a very clever, whimsical and dark spin on familiar tales from childhood. It is easily the most unique series to debut this fall, with a tremendous ensemble cast and the ideal creative team behind the scenes for a show of this nature and scope.
Make no mistake - Once Upon a Time is not a show about fairy tales; it is a refreshingly original series that openly embraces a journey through two worlds – the Then and the Now (not official terms for each time; simply my way of differentiating). While watching each episode of Once Upon a Time, keep a keen eye wide open for recognizable, iconic nods to both LOST and the tales you all loved as children. Homage is alive and well in the town of Storybrooke, an entertaining addition to the fantastic world that Horowitz and Kitsis have created.

Sansa and Joff in much better mood than we usually see them on screen..appear to be laughing at something writer David Benioff said. He's walking behind them.
