    Peter C's commentary is not very enlightening. He just tried to explain why D/S aren't ahead of D/C and just kept saying they couldn't pull up.

    I also hate it when commentators don't immediately identify an error. Or for that matter an element. I don't want to hear chatter about style, I want quiet quick identification of technical issues.

    Honestly I don't know why they have commentary. Most people who will shell out $40 for what is really just a few nights of figure skating a year don't need it and don't want it. I know for the junior events they didn't have it but still.

    Nice job! Just a bit of a crash upon the landing of their split 3twist (she looked like she landed on his back), and they need to finish off their moves like Andrea P. does. Also, they were off on their sbs jumps just like D&S were. Gonna be close...

    Oh, I loved this red team (Z or Smieka & Dmitrov). The choreography was lovely, and they had nice speed, gorgeous costumes, and they're both so good-looking. Does she get deducted for grazing the ice in the death spiral? Shoot, they're only in fourth.

    I like it if it's unobtrusive and informative. I thought Tara was good last season - hope she's back tonight.

    This pair is way too close in height in order to be impressive, therefore their moves are not spectactular and have very little height, too many mistakes. Also, I'm comparing everybody else with Andrea P.'s finesse and they are lacking. :(

    Btw, I'm actually looooooooooving Peter Carruthers commentary, we are simpatico, like having ESP with another, lol.

    A little early but I'm SO EXCITED to see how Cain & Reagan perform. I love their moon river...just hope Ashley's not all tired out from junior ladies.

    I love how this pair dares to be different; they come out with those spectacular powerful black velour costumes with glitter; don't care about the mistakes, loved the fact that they succeeded in presenting a totally different type of program and making me sit up and watch!

    ps: she reminds me of Lucinda Ruh to a "t".

    I would so love to see Marley and Brubaker do well.

    I swear Marley & Brubaker have borrowed Anissina & Peizerat's "Romeo & Juliet" costumes. And I can't believe Peter said that that one guy is 6'4" tall!!!! WOW!

    Looking forward to seeing E&L easily challenging D&C, I like both, so I'm cheering them both on. However, I think that D&C are more powerful & dynamic when on, and have the better chance of actually capturing a medal at Worlds & Olympics. Jmho.

    ps: that young pair of Cain & Reagan makes me nervous, they can easily challenge D&S...

    Great job by M&B! Except Mary Beth really needs to finish off her moves like Andrea P. does. Only minor bobble was Rockne putting his hand down on the death spiral. Solid performance.
