    8 points is a lot but not impossible for S/S -- they tend to be stronger in the FS segement anyway...

    I saw this coming.. The shibutani's programs this year are just not good at all! I said in a previous thread they should have switched programs after Finlandia.

    I only watched the American Teams, and thus far I liked Lichtman & Copely the best, and also the Shibutanis.

    My only complaint about the Shibs is that they look so young, about 12 yrs. old, I miss the old days of ice dance when the man looked like a man and the woman looked like a woman (aka Anissina & Peizerat).

    But what do I know, I'm not an ice dance fan, only know what I like, and what I have always liked in the past were T&D, the Duschenays, A&P, and S&B. The latter no more. :(

    Btw, I was really hoping that Emily would do a "Marina Anissina" and find a partner in another country, preferably France or Russia. But I've come to realize that Emily is the less dominant partner in the relationship, as there is usually two types of personalities in a partnership, the leader/forceful one/gets things done (aka Christopher Dean) and then there is the nice laid back one (aka Jayne Torvill). Jmho.

    Ah well, onto ladies.

    Maia and Alex got level 1 on their lift and level 2 on their Non touching step seq. This is why they are so far behind the russians. Both teams had level 3 on their compulsories

    I think it was obvious the Shibutani's would slip this year but the Russians were quite overscored.

    One judge gave the Shibs +2 and +3 on all their elements(and PCS over 9) while other just one +1 and the rest 0(and the highest score was 7.25 on the SS). Gotta love ice dance
    Oh, I don't agree B/S getting higher GOE then the Shibs on the twizzles. This is wrong

    Protocals:

    *S/S and B/S score the same levels on the two sequences (level 3) -- AND S/S edged them out slightly on GOE
    *S/S got downgraded on their lift and circular step sequence (that mistake from Alex hurt) --
    * Oddly enough no -GOE otherwise from S/S, just downgraded levels.
    *How the heck did B/S score better on the twizzles?
    ** ETA: S/S lost more on TES --- they would have scored at least 5 points more if they had the levels.

    ** Carron/Jones -- level one on second sequence, level two on circular step sequence
    ** Coomes/Buckland -- level 2 and level three for their sequences; they also got level four on twizzles and lift and level 3 step sequence good for them.) They actually beat the Shibs in TES -- what a surprise.


    ** Huang/Zheng -- scored level 3 and 2 on sequence but level one on aborted left and level 2 on step sequence.
    ** Yu/Wang - level 3 both sequence, level two circular step sequence


    * Samuleson/Gilles - level 2 on sequences, level one on step sequence
    * Litchman/Copley got just level 1 on their sequence and circular step sequences.

    Well the Shib's twizzles were slower and covered a lot less ice today.

    "* Most of B/S lead is clearly in PCS."

    This is not right. B/S beat S/S on the technical mark by 4.79 points and on the presentation by 3.15

    I find all of the top teams overscored this season. Maybe it's the focus on required elements stifling creativity but something's missing. They're all a little disappointing though I admire the top teams' technical ability.

    Slower for what they usually do. B/S still shouldn't have scored above them in this element.
