    I'm with you seniorita - I made it to the first ice re-surface and was fast alseep! I has so happy to see Shen & Zhao skating again - they looked great. I held my breath when they went for the jumps, and I loved their lift.

    I also was when I saw how low down M&T were and wondered what happened. Thankfully i have the whole thing taped (and i set the recorder to do everything in between when Eurosport switch for the ice re-surface).

    I actually watched the first two groups on the BBC coverage and it was nice to hear Robin Cousins commentating again...though he did seem to make a few mistakes of his own commentating and it's nowhere near as good as Chris and Nicky on Eurosport!

    Funny as well was that i watched the "guide to figure skating" they showed before the broadcast of the Pairs competition and it made me laugh that in the "identify the jumps" section they clearly show a toe-loop and call it a flip! Helpful for the audience!

    dont forget your promise!!!
    I m in the mountains of central greece last two days and I m thinking to stay here until the end of men lp, and hide my head in the snow until then cause i m starting having butterflies in my stomach I didnt like the draw much for men (yey for brezina though) , i so hope plushy skates well and the rest is not in his hands and wont matter, if he is beaten it means the others were better so fair enough. But i hope he skates well so he has no regrets.
    Ok i m out of subject. I ll check for youtube vids now, I want to see the last two groups, they emailed me that S/S were awesome!

    You are missing the point,
    I dealed with the point that K/S sp score is over appropriated.

    Think again.

    Evgeni (he is Russian, you know) and Yuna is called the favorite to get gold
    and they deserve credit for "be fixed" without mistakes "in a way".

    But K/S is different.

    What you say,,, hum. Don't be mad about that, No offense.

    But! Comparing Yuna and K/S ?
    It's beside off the point!

    Anybody knows where else can we watch the pairs SP? There were YT uploads earlier but were taken down immediately "due to IOC copyright" *sigh*

    I would put
    1st: S/S
    2nd: S/Z
    3rd: K/S
    4th: P/T
    5th: Z/Z

    S/Z is kinda hollow and boring.
    S/S massive triple flip throw should put them over in the first place.

    The top 2 teams don't have the details down to the tee like K/S. K/S deserve their PCS for all of the little details and nuances they do in each elements. P/T is clean, but lack the wow factor. I don't think they're much better than Amanda Evora and her partner, to be honest.

    P/T, Z/Z overscored and should be under 70.

    The top 3 should be a bit closer.

    I think one and two are correct. No idea why D/D got the gift they did.
    I'll join the minority! I like S/S' clown program, too!

    Hmmm, an interesting placement! But I can see where it's coming from if you are an avid fan of Rachael Flatt

    I disagree.

    And it would've if they hadn't messed up on their SBS spins.

    Therefore. S/Z, FTW (:

    NBC really messed up on the flags!

    My top placements - Shen & Zhao
    Aliona & Robin
    Pang & Tong
    Kavaguti & Smirnov

    I generally really like Dube & Davison, but I feel they were severely overmarked. Langlois & Hay skated beautifully & should have been placed higher than D&D.

    I am jumping over the moon for Amanda & Mark, and hope they skate really well for the long proram. I think Caydee & Jeremy skated quite well despite that downgraded jump.

    Can't wait to see the finals!

    My opinions exactly! I think S/S costumes are gorgous! Yes it's very themed and I understand that some people think it's over the top; but I think it just adds to the atmosphere, the general artistic product. For me that SP is just such an amazing package.
