Hello... Anyone else watching live now?
Interesting music choices so far Goldfinger, Mambo Italiano, Mambo #5
Glad to see Maia's new dress. I like it!
Wicked Yankee Girl
Coomes & Buckland were surprisingly good. 53.86
Samuelson & Gilles had the most dreadful remix of Goldfinger I've ever heard. 43.64
Lichtman and Copley had better music but worse skating 40.26
Yu & Wang had Mambo Italian and Let's get loud as a samba
Just about to start again. More later.
Samuelson & Gilles aren't doing much for me right now, but they'll certainly get better!
Let's Get Loud might be the most overused music this season...
I'm here, after taking a 7-month hiatus from figure skating and the boards, but Emily & Evan's break-up drew me back.
I was soooo hoping that the new pair team of Emily & Todd would prove miraculous, but now am in a 1,000+1 depressions after watching their SD. :(
Geeze, now I think they should've just waited until they were ready. :(
Emily looks totally out of shape, I was hoping she would come back looking svelte and reading to rumble. Totally disappointed. :( Evan & his new partner are miles & miles ahead of Emily & Todd at this point, in everything. Though I have to concede the only thing Emily & Todd have other them is height, I LOVE the height difference between Em & Todd, whereas Evan looks like a giraffe next to his new partner. If only they had stayed together, but now I'm wondering if Evan wasn't right to leave Emily for somebody lighter...
Just so depressed. Here's hoping their Led Zeppelin "Stairway to Heaven" FD is a step in the right direction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcL---4xQYA
ETA: I would have had the other pair ahead of S&G. I liked their music and dance, even with the bobble by him. Whereas I would put Emily&Todd in last place. They have LOTS & LOTS of work to do (first being to srap their SD, costumes, et al). Emily needs a 200% makeover. Fight, Emily, fight, or just give up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9Vi-us0njY

Nadine, the music was so bad, it was hard to concentrate on Emily & Todd's skating. Good to see you back!
Welcome back Nadine. Hopef
Always good to see you, doris.
Is it me or does Ekaterina Bobrova seem kind of slouched down?
ETA: They were solid otherwise! The judges agree.

I said in the prediction thread it's not gonna be a catwalk for the Shibs. I was right
Wow for the Brits, I hope they keep their medal position!
Bobrova's posture did bother me but according to the Eurosport commentators they had more speed and a bigger pattern than the Shibutanis.
I'm kind of surprised actually, I would have scored them ahead of B/S. Bleh. But Maia did say they got downgraded on something in the Kiss and Cry...

Alex had a stumble in the circular step not touching, but I was also surprised by how far it dropped them.
