    I would like to K/K's music skated to by a better pair (don't mind the Coldplay fan in me). Their costumes are also really lovely IMO.

    Guys, if you ripp apart some of the elements, M-T/M, had some sloppy moments, and overall they were not as polished as D/R. Examples: Bumpy landing and tight rotation (without too much airtime on the twist), messy delivery of the sbs spins, while Eric and Meagan were in total synch on that.
    The choreographical details of Meagan and Eric's program count imo a lot towards their PCS.

    I expected Kemp and King's score to be a bit higher, too

    David King is such a handsome young man, but his carriage is not that graceful when in motion. Need to take ballet classes imo.

    They do SBS double flips. There's not much higher the score can go. And I agree with the person who said ballet could help. Still, it was a great skate for them.

    I would have been okay with the two Canadian teams in any order... D/R had their issues and M/M's SBS spins were pretty off. D/R probably are more polished, but neither team is knocking it out of the park in that department.

    I hope B/L do well, I love them ! Actually I love all Russian couples except K/S (V/T, B/S, C/M). There, I said it but I may have to hide now *slips away quietly*

    Or Maxim would have lacked maturity to make it work.

    I'm back from a luncheon in time for just the the big guns of the last 2 flights. I see the Canadians did quite well but the Russion team has a big lead. There will be at least 4 pairs ahead of them so hopefully they will be in top ten.

    I agree. I can't wait until they get better programs.
    I like V/T's SP quite a bit. The choreography is active and powerful in a classically appealing way. I do find their LP to be more blah, though.

    Kavaguti/Smirnov have by far the best Pair's LP of the season, IMO. It's a travesty that they lost the European title after skating so well, especially with the massive mistake S/S made. This should really be their year to win. Unfortunately V/T are already looked upon more favorably, which is too bad. V/T and S/S are better technically but their LP's are far below what Kavaguti/Smirnov have this year.

    Beautiful skate from B/L, the SBS jumps were not as good as usual but other than that it was really nice.

    OMG, the noise. The Russian people really love Bazarova and Larionov (more than Volosozhar and Trankov, I guess?)
