    Nadine, I really don't know what you're talking about re: Dong and Wu's chunky lines.

    Anyway. E/L will probably go into 1st but that wasn't a great skate. Their lifts don't have the wow factor this season. I think she may have put on a little weight and maybe he just can't hoist her properly. I love this music for skating. Program has potential.

    ETA: OK, my word against Doris's. Who are you going to believe? LOL. Please don't answer that!

    OMG, the whole time, every beat of the music I could see Sarah Hughes magical 2002 Olympic FS, and then in the middle G&G's exquisite 1994 Olympic Exhibition performance, finally ending with Sarah Hughes again. *misty-eyed here*

    Sarah opened with an easy 2A, followed up by a light as a feather 3S/3R, then came the 3L/2T & 3F/2T, followed by a lovely spiral and spin, then the glorious 3T/3R! Then comes G&G's music wherein Katia & Sergei skated as one, finally ending with Sarah's music again wherein she was like a fairy running down the ice during the fw section (stag jump), finally ending with a 3T, followed by a magnificent split falling leaf and ending with a fast scratch spin, tada! Ahhhh, memories....

    Too me their lifts do have a wow factor
    I loved the costume color.
    3T seemed ured by her.
    Was their pair spin correct, since he lifted her off the ice and was spinning by himself?

    A SB for B/L, I think. Did she double one of her SBS jumps?

    They must have eaten Chinese. : )

    3T - ok
    3FTw - nice height
    3FTh - also nice
    2A+2A+SEQ - hers not very high, but landed
    PCoSp
    ChSt
    Li
    3LoTh
    Li
    FCCoSp - ok unison
    Li
    BiDs

    A surprisingly nice performance from them, should be enough for bronze, perhaps even silver

    I wondered about the pair spin. I think they might have lost a level on it. They had enough revs in for at least level one before that, but I'm not sure about the pairs rules for spins. In dance, the trouble is that a lift even in a spin counts as a lift. But in pairs, a lift has to go overhead. So I'm not sure whether a dance lift in the middle of a pair spin is a lift or a feature

    BRAVO!

    Now this is the closest to the classic RUS style that one gets nowadays. I can just sit back, relax, and enjoy.

    Still, no cigar, she needs to gain a few pounds.

    Elena Bereznhyia had the best stretch, carriage, and magnificent legs & toepoint out of all of them (even Katia).

    As Toller Cranston once famously said so many skaters skate to different kinds of music, but there is not replacement for the classics, there is no substitute for beauty). So true. Btw, he said this during Janet Lynn's heavenly skate to "The Blue Danube".

    Huge improvement over their last outing; and a clean performance.
    Good for B&L!

    That will definitely not beat B&L, and frankly, it should not beat E&L in the LP at least. Their pair spin position was very interesting, though!

    Lots of problems for D/R, but they have great unison (they even had exactly same touchdowns on a SBS jump, lol) and their last lift is fabulous. But I hate that squatting spin with her leg next to her ear.

    I wonder if TV makes her look stockier than she is. Anyway his lankiness definitely accentuates it as well. I'm not sure I will ever like their look together.
