    Ksenia Makarova is really good... never seen her skate before (and sorry, no way Firth was better than her...)

    why? I thought Firth did a great job aside from the fall on the flip.

    I think it was the attack (and 3-3 guts, even if 2nd triple was UR) on the program, I liked it better (taste I guess)... It was close, both around 47.

    Judging by the costumes, I have a feeling one of these girls will be skating to the Kill Bill soundtrack.

    Can't say their OD is the best thing I've ever seen on ice (have ambivalent feelings about their costumes, the OD music, and that going down on one knee by Maia).

    I loved the lifts, the speed and the flow. And I'm happy they're still in 1st. Looks like they're going to win this Grand Prix, which will be great!
    I love them, but I have to agree with some of your points. The costumes were great with staying in traditional Japanese style, but the color mix of black/blue pants threw me off. I thought the music was a little fast for the step sequences, but when the drums kicked in at the end I think it fit much better because of that dramatic rotational lift.

    Also, props to them because they were the only skaters that did an Asian-themed OD. They also had the best twizzles/lifts by far.

    I love to watch the Shibutanis, they just look so comfortable out there. Everything they do on the ice looks complete and smooth. Costumes can be changed, those qualities stay. :D

    Oh my gosh, the korean girl just skated to "Murder on Orient express", which was my favourite movie when I was 8. I'm surprised and delighted!

    I know I was watching the warmups and this little girl was just flying out there and I'm like wow. And that was Rosa. I think Russia's sad days in ladies are over, they have a lot of talents.

    And it looked like very big jumps too. I'm really wanting to see Fujisowa though, it's really who I'm waiting for! And Kristine too. I wasn't impressed with Firth at all.
