    Leaving the scores aside, who should have won the SD? S/S or B/S?

    I thought B/S program was quite sloppy, but it looks like S/S did leave some levels on the table -4 of B/S' 8-point lead was in BV alone. Shibs actually just .79 behind GOE. I think the judges also don't know how to score S/S in PCS for the SD -- scores range dfrom 6.50 to 9.5 (!!) The whole "siblings don't do Latin well" seem to prevail in those scores rather than what they actually did.

    I don't know much about technical aspect of ice dance, but the S/S & B/S's scores should have been much closer. Eurosport commentators also said so, and I agree.

    I agree with them too.
    BTW, I noticed today Maia is growing into a stunningly beautiful young lady. Her dress was very flattering. The teams from Canton are so elegant this season

    Love Maia's dress too -- so nice compared to all the train wreaks from the other teams!

    How the heck did S&S score better on the sequences? It was slow and didn't cover as much ice surface as Russians' and wasn't that sharp at all.

    Well, B/S scored better than them on the twizzles despite a mistake; so I call it even.

    ETA: I did feel they were a bit tentative on the sequences--but they do have nice edging, so that probably helped.

    It's not the scoring of the Shibs that bothers me, it's the overscoring of B&S, particularly in the PCS. No way are they anywhere that close to V&M and D&W in PCS, in any sense. And no way should they be nearly 2 points ahead of P&B, even with P&B being ill.

    V&M 36.36
    D&W 36.19
    B&S 33.23
    P&B 31.56
    C&L 31.42
    W&P 30.89
    S&S 30.08
    Z&G 29.14


    And no way are the Shibs skating skills close to Zhiganshina & Gaszi

    I love Maia's new dress, too. I just wish Alex put a lot of hair gel and wear his hair sling back style. With Latin as a theme of this year, they still look glaringly young. Maia's is a marked improvement from Finlandia, and I wish Alex follows suit.

    This is the senior level, so appearance matters.

    Clearly it doesn't matter, as that orange & black dress of Bobrova's looked like a Halloween ball castoff. Not to mention the 40 mile long glue-on lashes.

    But the Shibs did look young...well, they are young.

    Eek! Indeed. I would've put B/S below W&P. I can't believe they beat the Italians---now that's a Latin dance. S/S probably on par with W&P in my view, esp in skating skills....

    Stop comparing scores from different competition. In no way would Tatiana and Maxim beat Aliona and Robin by 6 points in the LP if they skated the same programs in the same competition.

    Well, I'm up past my bedtime with my lashes propped up on toothpicks. Generally PCS are close to set in stone over the GP season; tech not so much, because tech callers vary wildly and the skaters mess up now and again. This competition more now. BTW, I got the wrong column for the Shibs' PCS-they are marginally better than Z&G, but not much.
