    Verner was a delight to watch, straight out of a musical, fall out on the 3A, but great comeback with a gorgeous 3L, and easy 3/3 combo. to open it all. Great job, Thomas!

    Contesti was awful, he is not Bradley , this program was not humorous..
    I like Brian's sp, I wish Plu had skated to this music.

    I'm still in shock how Brian's gorgeous routine was put behind Kozuka by 3 pts? *baffled*

    I honestly need an expert out there to explain it to me?????

    I love both of them, but I feel Brian's routine was better, more natural.

    C'est la vie, will await the LPs next!

    Low score for Brian, imo. Downgrades?

    Congrats to Taka, Brian and Tomas. Loved all of their SP's. Also a shout out to Brandon and Ross 4th and 6th. They will be in the final flight.

    I wish IN had instant replay so I could watch Brian & Takahiko's routines again, to see where the differences lie. Hmmm...

    Thanks for posting that, demarinis5! I see now that Brian must've got downgraded on his jumps. :( Still I feel his PCS could've been a little bit better. But this is only 1/2 over, they still need to skate their Lps.

    What a great night of skating though, I had a BLAST! (:^D

    must not only be downgrades - could easylie be higher levels in spins, since joubert is rather weak in spins. perhaps he also did´nt have all the features in the step sequence. we will see when the details are up after long program anyway

    There was a lack of musicality in this competition except for the European men.

    Kozuka - fine skate but bland
    Joubert - Also fine. He's not Lambiel but the attempt at Spanish was passable
    Werner - ok and there is life in him yet.
    Contesti - his best skating is behind him.
    Voronov - his best since Sweden Worlds, but oh, so ordinary.
    Minor - coming along and not going the Carriere way
    Mroz - needs a lot of exhibitions; the tech is in line with all the others
    Liebers - underscored, as usual

    Overall - just no WOWs.
    I kind of see something in Peitong for the future. Also his 'a la seconde' spin was unique.
