    I'm happy that P/B & I/K both skated so well!

    I hope that I/K & R/T would be the top two Russians here, but that is so unlikely to happen.

    I'm not into Bobrova and Soloviev's new SD. It's just sort of boring; I think it might be the song. Why did they change it anyway? Too many complaints about the gruesome 'Delilah' lyrics?

    I don't want to sound mean, but...

    - They should have retired after last year's (gift) bronze at their home World.
    - They should have known that they will never again be that close to the top.

    It was a gift for years of service, just like the bronze to the German ice dancers about 5-6 years ago when the Worlds were in Germany (can't for the life of me remember their names) They however realized that they would never get that high again and retired...

    Urk! Due to the extreme problems I had with some livestreaming earlier in the season, I just assumed I'd have to wait for YouTube... and now I find out they work ( but but didn't discover it 'til the tail end of the pairs ) I can't believe B/S changed their SD ...it was working, I thought.

    I'll have to scan YouTube for the short ,but I'm thrilled these links are working and there's relatively little buffering. can't wait for the FD.Did see a clip of Federica losing the twizzle...ouch!

    Really enjoyed the original dance, it was much better than I expected. Chris from Eurosport was very impressed with I/K, while Nicky tended to find some faults with most couples. Was very impressed with I/K, they really have improved throughout the season, they caught and held your attention from the start. Really liked P/B and they do deserve their lead but they are not as far ahead as I expected.

    It will be interesting to see if the Kerrs can hold on to third, the two new russian couples will be chasing them down and also trying to be the second ranked Russain couple to earn a trip to worlds. Feel sorry for the Italians, really enjoyed their programmes last year but judges did bury them a bit, but they can still pull up. Why did they allow only 21 teams into the original dance and then 20 on to the free? Seems kinda silly, would they not have been better letting all teams skate the original? Only 28 couples take part.

    I actually thought the Kerrs deserved second but oh well.

    I might be the only one who doesn't really like Ilinykh and Katsalapov. They're ok, but I think they might be overrated. They don't make me say 'wow.'

    Right now I wanted to see them once again on youtube and the music is disabled. I think it is ridiculous.!

    You are not the only one. I dislike big time their waltz music and perhaps that is why I do not like their SD. I have to recognize that they skated better than the whole season, but I would still have put them behind Riazanova / Tkacenko who's waltz is one of my favorites.

    I am very happy for P/B who are my long time sentimental favorites, I just hope they skate cleanly and take the gold, they got the pewter medal way too many times.

    No, you're not. I just don't get them.

    I really like B/S (they have everything but "it") but that was a terrible SD. Whoa. I'm genuinely convinced that the music is played when welcoming people into hell. Much prefered their last one. And I'm glad they're close to P/B.

    Yikes! B/S..what have you done ? I don't think it was a switch from the gruesome lyrics, since now , he's about to strangle her at the end.

    A move to be as dark and dramatic as I/K ? Frankly, I can do with a bit less.

    Got to go search out the others...

    Okay, I shouldn't have spoken before seeing I/K's SD. Doesn't impress me as a dance, but that was easily their best skate. Those twizzles were amazing and the lift was gorgeouos. They skated with intensity and flair and I might be starting to like them.

    Riazanova/Tkachenko were also quite good.

    P/B bore me when they don't annoy me. They bored me.

    F/S.... sigh.

    My thoughts:

    Péchalat & Bourzat - Very happy for them. Their SD was great and they deserve to be in 1st place.

    Bobrova & Soloviev - They were good. I was surprised by their scores, though.

    Kerrs - They were awesome. I think they deserve to be in 2nd place.

    Ilinykh & Katsapolov - A great performance for such a young couple. I think their scores were fair.

    Riazanova & Tkachenko - I thought they were a little overscored, but I thought their performance was okay.

    Faiella & Scali -

    I'm very happy Hoffmann & Zavozin, the German couple and Hurtado & Díaz did well!
