    Savchenko & Szolkowy were fantastic.

    Good skate from S/S, I think this is the first time I've really appreciated the musicality of this program. They seemed to be struggling during the step sequence though, quite slow. I think I'd still have them behind P/T but that's maybe just me.

    I would have S/S in 3rd, it's not their best programme. Still all to play for.

    Liking Y/C. The US has a lot of pairs coming through.

    YEAHHHHH that's just left one more Russian team. If they go clean, there will be 4 teams w 70+ score fighting for 3 podium spots!! Going to be more exciting than the men competition.

    S/S had good energy but a little sloppy at times and didn't create the magic like P/T.

    We are definitely getting a lot of fine competition today. Perhaps the extra time for rest, practice, and polishing at the end of the season accounts for it. Unfortunately, that was caused by a tragedy, but the skating level is incredibly high. Perhaps it is due to the special higher quality ice? I don't know. I just know that we're getting a treat.

    Savchenko and Szolkowy's program didn't come alive until the end, after the footwork sequence. And even that last part of the program where it felt like they were actually performing contained their weakest element: the side-by-side spin. I'd have put them 3rd.

    P/Thave more of a program than V/T.
    I agree. I really like V/T but their programs (short and long) aren’t as interesting and as difficult as S/S and P/T.

    Now they should get better programs for the following seasons so I can’t wait.

    Go C/Y

    That really sucks for Y/C, I like them...John's fall was so stupid and it disrupted the whole program IMO.

    Oh well for Y/C. That's going to really hurt.

    John Coughlin stumbled out of nowhere, or because of the hole?
    The american pair skated well.
