    Robin and Aliona were so off! Still love the program, though.

    Savchenko/Szolkowy (GER)

    Music: Pina (soundtrack)

    3FTh - very high!
    3T+3T+SEQ - he doubles both
    ChSp
    FCCoSp - ok unison
    BoDs
    3Tw - bit low
    2A - she singles
    Li
    Li
    PCoSp
    Li - problems on entrance, he sets her down
    3STh - she 2foots

    Not their best... I think it will be silver.

    S/S... some bobbles but so superior. I wonder what the chances of their dominating until Sochi are, though. It's a long way away. This is probably my favorite of their FS's.

    ETA: Gosh, didn't even notice her 1A.

    ETA again: I wonder why she can't have her hair done properly. What's with all the bobby pins? I know that's trivial but it bothers me.

    S/S messed this up but I think they will score about 115 despite huge losses in jumps.

    Oh no, that lift was brutal for Savchenko/Szolkowy.

    I appreciate that they don't just perform generic lifts...they all fit the character of the program. Pina Bausch would be proud!

    My computer crashed again during the German pair's performance. *double sigh*

    Anyhow, I find it odd that the man's line is better than the female's in this instance, those bowed legs & flat feet without pointed toes really stick out imho.

    Ahhh, I miss the days of G&G and their correct technique, the right technique, the Russian technique. I recall when Sergei would throw Katia his feet never left the ice and his movement continued to flow, not stop, and most definitely he did not throw her like a sack of potatoes, which has been the case with pairs since the Russians stopped dominating.

    I think that program may be too difficult even for them. Hopefully it'll be in better shape later this season. Either that, or the 3A chase is becoming a distraction.

    I admire them for continuing to take risks with their concepts and their TES; it would be so easy for them to have more standard programs, or to recycle programs - but no, they keep pushing themselves.

    (I thought they should have finished 2nd, even with the mistakes).

    Why is this so shocking to the British commentator? S&S lost huge in their technical content with a botched lift, 2-ft th sal, doubled jumps...
