    The Japanese men rarely seem to all do well at the same time. I kind of think anything could happen.

    ITA. Posing and dancing on one spot for around a whole minute of the program may be entertaining but is not really great skating. I hope he gets a better program next season.

    ITA big time. I LOATHE this arm waving called "choreography" and thought the nightmare was over, when Plushenko retired. Then he started comebacks plus running around a violinist and now we have Gachinski...

    Brian won...I thought Florent won. Nevermind..I see that Florent won

    Congrats to all the medalist. I kind of felt bad for Brian after that awful fall on the lutz. That was a weird fall.

Clearly Amodio can dance, but dancing on one spot several times throughout his program does not a skater make. His PCS should have been much lower. Combined with his tech mistakes today - the fall on the loop, edge call on his flip and his repetition of the lutz without doing a combo - he should not have gotten that high a score and won.

    And the Russian politiking is at it again - Gachinski scored way too high for that program (PCS in particular - one Pluschenko was bad enough, but now another...sigh).
    Count me as one that agrees here - I enjoyed Amodios SP much more then this silly, posey LP - sorry say the crowd seemed to get into it, but not enough skating for me.

    If Gachinski becomes the next big thing I may have to stop watching - I just can't handle his style

    I'm really glad the Italian commentators said Brian's PCS marks were incredibly inflated^^ They really were

    Gachinski's just a Plushenko impersonator, I really dislike his "style".

    I love Tomas and his skating, but both his programs for this season are so much less vivid and entertaining than before. They just leave me cold. He is also much slower than in the past and elements lack this superb quality that he used to present. But his PCS remains unchanged... So if he had skated clean I would have him on the podium, but with these mistakes, the programes become completely pale... Therefore I think KVDP should have won bronze (Ufff, I cannot believe I have said that ) - he had a pale program too, but clean jumps.

    I might be totally in minority here, but I actually liked Gachinsky's LP. It was dynamic and fast. Music accents were emphasized (even if it was Plushenko's reminiscence and I did not actually like Plushenko at all! ).
    I still dont know what to make out of Jouberts LP - once I like it and I think he is interpreting the music well in his own 'unclassical' way, but in the next seconds I cannot help to think that it is a bit fake expression from him (I have to see the progam again). Plus that URed 4T...

    If Chan takes 8 stops in the program to emote, I'm sure he can show his critics some awesome expressions.
