So far, the camera has focused mostly on Jordin Sparks and her tortured tube dress, with a few brief cutaways to the skaters.
Speaking of tortured, Kwan still sounds like she's chewing on marbles when she's talking. What did they teach her in college?
Also, Silk is overpriced and horribly watered down. Vitasoy ftw!
Good god, this is awful: 5% skating, 95% close-ups of bands and singers that aren't even has-beens, just never-was. And Kwan gets less intelligible by the moment. Working for the Bush administration would do that to you.

Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
So many great skaters in this show, but if they keep showing 2/3 of each program with the camera on the band and 1/3 on the skater(s) it is unwatchable. The duet of Evan and Sasha was cute, but she was only out there for like 30 seconds. I hoped they would do some lifts or something.
