    Love Pang and Tong's program even with the hand down on the toe loop.

    Z/Z performance was even slower and more laboured than usually. And the lack of expression turns me off their skating completely.
    Italian commentator on RAI just said that P/T and the least expressive of the Chinese pairs, and it just made me cringe... They are not S/Z but they are head and shoulders above Z/Z in that department. They improved tremendously.

    I loved Pang and Tong's performance as well, although I cannot call any lift of theirs beautiful. Her positions are way too weak. Still, that last lift was nice and went really well with the music.

    Wow, they got a 133 without skating completely clean. S/Z are going to get a 140 at the rate this is going!

    So glad that P/T did so well! First time in the 200+ club?

    Agreed, and it was so fitted with the music. Very beautiful and well-deserved 200 breaks.

    Great skate by P/T!! (save for that one hand down) Loved it!

    Now I hope the next three teams really bring it!

    How are P/T worse in the expression department than Z/Z? They are no S/Z but they're pretty good.

    Z/Z all season long have looked like they would rather be anywhere else than skating--especially Dan. Something is going on behind the scenes with this couple.

    I feel like they always look like that.


    Pang and Tong are definitely well above them in the expression department.

    Wow. Another great lp showing by M/T. I love their pure, classic style.

    Judging by that performance, P/T should be on the podium, and by a relatively big margin. Let's see.

    Nice for M/T to have skated another almost clean lp

    Really nice skate from M/T! Out of unison on the SBS spins, but the rest was very secure. Impressive! I just don't like that program though. There's not much choreography at all, and they do nothing with that music.
