    Girl S fell hard on the 3A throw. Severely underrotated that one.
    Guy S doubled the SBS toe.

    Oh boy.

    B/S always made mistakes. They had lovely programs. But I feel K/S have even better programs than G/G and B/S. Tamara doesn't shortchange her students. She gave everything she got to them.

    The only thing I like about this pair is their p-o-w-e-r and the fact that they are so risky and go for anything!

    But other than that, this is not a pair in terms of being two halves of a perfect whole, as Dick Button would say.

    Seriously, like two individual skaters skating out there. And have I mentioned how much I HATE bowed legs.

    Very impressed by S/S. They went for that 3A to stay competitive.
    Hate Girl S's outfit. That diaper thing she's wearing is not cute at all.

    Yuko fell badly and injured her chin last year's GP at Japan, too. I have a feeling that she gets really tense and nervous to skate at her home country presumably because she wants to excel really badly. poor girl. She tries so hard.

    The program overall looked better than at Skate America. They look so surprised to see they are in first place ) (Did Aliona said something not very nice at the end of the program?)
    That 3A was sooo close! Such a shame!

    Lol, good to see you too, FlattFan.

    Anyhow, looks like judging is as usual.

    S/S look like Z/Z in their better days. Huge throws, fast, ugly costumes. They always look so tacky.

    I would put T/T first after the short program.

    Yuko did a beautiful triple toe in the warm up, too bad she couldn't repeat that in the actual program.

    I actually saw this movie in the theater. Yes, Lubov reminded me of this woman.

    Well that was a disappointing SP. Everyone had mistakes and not one team scored
    60 or better.

    Poor K/S in 5th ouch. They should move up in the FS they have a beautiful program.

    eta: I loved T/T program.

    Funny to see such animosity towards S/S when they got such praise in Skate America, especially for the LP.

    There's no way K/S would finish with less than a silver.
    I'm hoping T/T can get a bronze. They are just too good looking a pair to not get a medal.
