    K/S are much better than yesterday. But her jarring line, those ugly lift position, and spins... What is the British commentator smoking? LOL.

    Why is she so sad about an SB?

    This kind of score won't be competitive at worlds. As I said, this season they can no longer get those outrageous marks even with a relatively 'clean' skate. I think S/S, V/T and P/T will easily exceed them with a relatively clean skate. The British commentator said she landed a throw quad sal before, which is news to me. I think she tried many times but never cleanly landed.

    I wouldn't call that program mostly clean. There were a lot of bobbles here and there. I think their biggest program is her being healthy. Her arms were covered in muscle tape and that has to make a lot of those pair elements extremely difficult.

    I can't help but wonder if T/T should go into ice dance? Takahashi cannot jump to save her life.

    You don't think they could pull their scores up the way the Shibs just did? There was room for improvement there.

    Also, P/T remains to be seen... but thanks for explaining, I'm sure you're right.

    That's what I find annoying about T/T.

    They always have some bobbles in those so-called clean skates. Judges were generally to them in the past.

    It's really unfortunate, because to me they have every single other quality.

    Oh dear, D/L ... did their relationship sour or what? All the magic of this program left. She fell on the first throw ... he hesitated before picking her up. It looks like she put on a few pounds that don't help their lifts - or else the costume is really unflattering.

    ETA: Oops - D/C... I thought Loughlin, sorry.

    Darn, my computer crashed during C&D's lovely skate. *sigh*

    I just wanted to say that I'm now officially in love with this pair. Seriously, my first glimpse of them at Skate America shocked & surprised me, I think they are perfect for each other (though initially I was hesistant b/c I didn't like the circumstances of the breakup with their old partners, especially his), but I love everything about them, their connection, music, programs, et al.

    Bravo despite the mistakes!

    She hardly ever looks happy imo. K/S best score was about 139 so I guess maybe she's expecting something near that.
