Open Caption: Breaking Pointe

Good morning, sunshines. Hope you're ready for another scintillating rendition of our Open Caption game. Hats off to anyone who uses the word "scintillating" in their submission today. And thank you for all of your glorious TV and theme suggestions for the summer! I'm taking note, so it's gearing up to be a good one. Now: here are your winners from yesterday's contest—you'll notice today's caption is a bit of a double triumph. Way to tag-team those suggestions!


From Gorand2055 and FringeFanatic:

Jim: "Be Vewwwwy, vewwwy qwiet."
"...I'm hunting Cwostner."


pcsjunior002:

Jim: "This is for Waterworld."


From BDRegan:
Jim: "All we've gotta do is return his wife's fur coat, make like she's the one lost it in the first place, and this whole feud'll be over."



Today's Image: Breaking Pointe

This new CW show is out to expose the cutthroat nature of the ballet industry. And judging by the previews it's promising lots of bloody toes, strained muscles, beautiful bodies, and... drama, probably. Ballet has a dark side, and tonight's premiere isn't going to waste any time taking you there. I know, I know, it's a reality show—but look at all the captioning possibilities here! Between the camera man and his crazy steadycam rig and the male (Ronnie) and female (Allison) dancers, there's a lot going on here. Post your best caption ideas in the comments!

Check out all of our recent winners on TV.com's Open Caption Pinterest Board.

Perfection? Slop? When it comes to highly-technical artistic expression, the majority of America can't tell the difference, but they'll judge anyway!
