    I wish Meryl would try a softer look - lighter lipstick, less foundation, bangs or something to soften the hairstyle... her face always looks like a mask!
    Agreed on all points!

    I don't like Meryl's slight knee bend in her free leg during the rhumba, but I don't know enough about ice dance to know if that matters much. I still though D/W were excellent today, as were P/B. I also liked W/P quite a bit.

    Yes, they were excellent, I just liked V/M better. Scott turned that fall into a plus with the crowd. Maybe not for the judges, though!

    Not falling and stumbling multiple times probably helps a lot. I prefer V/M's short dance as well though. It just wasn't a great day for them.

    Were D/W really 8 points better than P/B? Like the Shibs I thought it had no latin feel at all yet they get 9.5 for choreography and interpretation? I think the French have been hard done by, I would have had them first. Much preferred the first 3 couples, I think all of the second group were overmarked.

    D/W's score seemed a little high to me, I also think the French were underscored (per usual).
    Nice recovery from the fall, though, for Scott. And just picked up and kept in flow with program, looks like he added his own little choreography to get back in.

    Little off topic, but I have noticed that most of the top teams' ladies have changed their dresses each competition. Is this the new thing? Egads, I feel sorry for their parents-those dresses have to be in the $1,000's each!!!

    All I am saying is that I preferred the french couple tonight. It's my own personal preference, and I think that compared with how the top 2 teams scored, they deserved better. I know nothing about scores, I just remarked that D/W got a huge score which I believe it's a world record.(never said it wasn't deserved) That's all

    Ugh, just before that fall I was thinking OMG, they're so fast, how can they not fall? and then he did. My loud yelp woke my son up from his nap :(

    I'm also surprised at that huge gap in the scores ... looks like it's mostly on GOE and the level 4 step sequence. I thought V/M had a better rhumba sequence, but D/W got better GOE

    I also sort of wonder if the judges wanted to make sure that D/W would be ahead given that V/M fell...

    I also am a fan of Tessa and Scott and love their SD but Charlie and Meryl were just better than V/M today, of course this is just my opinion.

    I wonder about this too. I really like Tessa's new SP pink/purple number.
