3S - he falls
3Tw - akward catch
3STh - ok
sbs spin - unison a bit off
2A + 2A seq. - he singles both (i think)
lift - cool set down
3LoTh - OK
I think the music fit better last season w/step seq.

L'art pour l'art
Craig Buntin so didn't get the memo about masculine costumes from Skate Canada. Just like yesterday a tight bodysuit with rhinestones, some shine-through material.
They could be an exciting pair, but apparently they decided that they have to do the same D/D - chose the most snoozy music ever. That program went nowhere.
I like Buntin's effortless flexibility, most male pair skaters look painful during those spiral sequences, he looks at least as flexible as she does.
As opposed to hot Contesti this season Craig Buntin lost something in his look. Maybe he put some weight on. But last yeaar I thought he looked hotter.
But he is cute anyway.
And now! I want I/M to medal!!! Please, do! It would be such a bust for them!

I really, really like Duhamel/Buntin but this music does not suit them.
Doubled sbs jumps, throw 3Lz had a really wonky landing...
They looked unprepared out there, is Craig injured or something? (i still take them over D/D anyday...)
This had been said many times before but is always good remember: Craig is so hot...
