    James/Bonheur really have problems(38.96). I was hoping they would have improved a lot this season.

    Have tuned back in just in time to see girl from the second french team BAWLING from happiness after a seemingly great skate! my lord, however would she handle a clean freeskate? I LOVE that music they used! What Joannie Rochette skated to the first year she broke into World top 10

    Very good program from M/M. The tricks were all there but I felt like the program just goes from element to element. Nothing about it drew me in. Maybe it's just me. Go D/D!!!

    M/T - Russia

    Wow are they are ATTACKING this program. Everything completely spot on, fast and assured, in sync all the way. If I were to be picky, I'd say a little too business-like in the performance, for such soft lyrical music, but it probably came off well live with that speed they carried! Extended warm applause from crowd.

    66.88 - extremely well done

    Good for Dube/Davison to branch out from the schmaltzy music they always do, but Requiem for a Dream doesn't really suit them very well; the SP seemed so laboured to me.

    Dube/Davison - CAN
    Requiem for a Dream

    3twist not bad
    lift great, ending close to boards
    3sals done, her slight wobble but good
    pair spin, long, and well done
    throw great
    deat spiral slightly rough ending
    he got slightly off in footwork (very very slight)
    ended behind music

    the bobbles described were all slight, this was still an excellent first performance of this program. I thought there use of the music much better than M/T, technically not perfect as the russians were... D/D also had good attack here, slightly less than the Russians, but D/D were not skating *through* the music but using it instead. I prefer this program, but M/T were really perfect today.

    64.54 - about right. I like the program.. not a *huge* departure for them, but finally a bit of edge that they need and will serve them well

    Good for D/D!!! This is the best they have skated in awhile. A couple bobbles but this is a good vehicle for them. Oh and here we go with the painted faces
