Sad thing is they WERE better last season, at least at the beginning during the JGP, after that it's only been downhill for them. They didn't even make the LP cut at 2009 worlds, which is really embarrasing for a russian team. I dont think they are going anywhere :sad:

Jumps and throws solid from Denney/Barrett except a step out from him on 2A. Their lifts looked a little shaky. Technically much better than what they did at NHK.
Caydee and jeremy were so good, they had landings and if others mess up they could easily medal. hope judges gives them the score they deserve.
P.S. i wish they had used a different music

3t- he doesn't get around and turns out
2a 2a sequence
3 flip throw. She crumbles on landing
one hand set down on lift
nice change of edge on one of the spirals
3 loop throw 2 footed landing
reverse rotation lift one hand down
change of hand on death spiral
Spins quite good

Music Free Skating / Free Dance as of season 2009/2010

Started with their jumps. Somehow lost the 2t or whatever it was that was planned to go with the 3S and 2A
3 twist a bit crashy
3 loop throw OK
dance lift transition, nice touch
lift so good with a carry that audience goes OOOOOOOOOOOOh
Neat entrance to the 3S throw.
they had a noticeable wait to start their steps.
Very creative lifts.
Love the one where he lunges under & then picks her up.
Score 95.77 heck of a debut
3 Caitlin YANKOWSKAS / John COUGHLIN USA 6 52.42
LP Pearl Harbour (soundtrack) by Hans Zimmer
Triple twist nice
3S throw weak ending
triple toes very nice
3lp throw step out
mess with the 2a sequence of jumps
91.19 total 123.61 into 2nd
4 Caydee DENNEY / Jeremy BARRETT USA 5 55.46
LP Sheherazade by Nikolai Rimski-Korsakov
Much better than last outing.
Landed the 3t's (slight 2 foot) and the 2a sequence
triple twist a tad chest crashy
3 flip throw and 3 loop throw
2 of the lifts were significantly labored.
Coach says that was awesome
Into 1st place
I love this program...but not as much as Spartacus
Glad Coughlin/Y did well too! I was so sad when Namiotka and Coughlin split =/....happy its been going well for John and Caitlin!
D/B scores 101 points for their FS, i was hoping they would score little higher than that. I am not sure of the chero or the music, they should chose something that suit them.
Only a 101. I think the lifts are one area that hurt them.
Wicked Yankee Girl
Some of the spins & death spirals and steps aren't getting the levels, I think. They seemed simpler. And 2 of the lifts were noticeably not great.
I'm watching roller men LP in one screen and ice pairs FS in another. Takes skill.
I'm in skating heaven
ETA: Whoa! Look, S/S in really nice costumes!
L'art pour l'art
Somehow I prefer to listen to feeds in Chinese or other languages that I don't speak. Understanding the commentary is not great, especially with those Canadian guys.
I was bracing myself for S/S costume, but that looks good on her. I some how imagined she was going to wear a shirt and kaki trousers.
I quite like PJ Kwong's commentary. It does border on dry, but she's generous without being annoying about it.
To me the problem is that they can't seem to shut up. Soemtimes you can't hear the music.
