    Could be. That hydroblade curve lift was gorgeous by T&B.

    Hei's in the requisite white shirt with untied bow tie
    (boredom icon) with black pants
    She's in a white dress that hangs like culottes in the skirt someometimes
    and looks like a very pale blue slip
    clearly looking for a Tessa Virtue vibe
    A kiss is just a kiss
    very pretty rotational lift
    they are deliberately working on their extensions
    layback move, a little unsteady
    jump into twizzles with arm flailing organized
    lift around his neck to a pose lift with her facing him
    pair spin with her with a lot of nice layback
    Jimmy Durante singing A sigh is just a sign :lol:
    that breaks the mood
    another really pretty simple rotational lift
    little stumble in the f/w
    screen froze
    lots of ballet arms in this program,
    another lift
    to end way after the music by the sound of it,
    but hard to tell from the audience clapping.

    Seriously. I refuse to like them until they stop slavishly copying V/M. Also Paul isn't Kurt Browning, take your hand(s) out of your pocket(s). But they certainly sold it. Those lifts were beautiful

    A case of imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I suppose?

    I liked their lifts too, but the ballet arm and pose stuff is kind of wrong for Casablanca. Rick is a tough customer in a bar, not the nutcracker prince.

    And it was too funny that they used Jimmy Durante's version of As Time Goes By.

    Good night Mrs. Calabash! wherever you are!

    Oh my they really look like Tessa & Scott. I like them but it's kinda too similar on this FD.

    well a canadian team DID choreography the FD... any nod to Kurt is a good one IMO

    they are really good skaters, nice lifts, lovely posture, nice speed....but they are just like mini V/M...they should work on a different style.

    I won't be surprised at all if Paul and Islam hold on to third.

    Yes--and my prediction in post one that P&I could jump into third is bidding well to come true. I would not have scored it that high, myself.

    All 3 of the teams ahead of P&I are known to have rather weak FD's this year.

    Yeah, but Browning could pull it off. Islam didn't. I saw it and said to my computer monitor "You're not Kurt Browning, take your hands out. It doesn't work and makes you look silly."

    The thing is despite the effortlessness of their lifts, it reads as trying too hard. Their FD at juniors had issues definitely, but they looked like they could have their own identity. Three of four programs (OD last season, SD and FD here) are just too much like V/M. And as a V/M fanbot, no no no no no.

    That score is high but probably fair. I just wanted it to be lower.

    Well, really we don't know until the other teams are scored whether it was too high or not. They were certainly far superior to the previous teams.
