    I think D/W should have won the FD at least, but since we're in France C'est la vie.

    I actually prefer V/M over D/W by far, but something's wrong with these scores. Even Tessa acknowledged in the interview just now that this was not their best go of the program. I especially and vigorously disagree with the fact that V/M's SS PCS is higher than D/W's.

    Hm interseting. I actually thought their 4CC version was the best one of it myself. I just did not feel it as much today.

    Oh by the way:

    The Shibs got zero points on the Twizzles + two level 2s on their step sequences. Unfortunate.

    But they did get level 4 on everything else. (lifts and spin)

    i think this summarizes up my feeling about the result perfectly...I'm secretly hoping that D/W go back to a storytelling FD next season or at least something that has more rise and fall...(I dont' need they to do something lik S&D or PotO, but something with that type of dynamic...it shows off their strengths betteran d considering that they've spent the last two season working on the smaller details I think returning to that style can will make them even more impressive as they can do their fast flashy parts and do the nuanced details too)

    I think T&S rocked it - yet they had more fire in the 4CC but the expressions here were wonderful and they became the characters.

    D&W had a good solid performance but I didnt find them as light on their feet as they usually are.

    While T&S have grown through the season I dont think I can say the same about D&W.

    I don't normally watch ice dance (think the results are pre-determined among other things) but just for the heck of it I watched Davis/White, and then Virtue/Moir. Can someone explain to me how V/M won the FD? Because from what I saw, D/W seemed to be the clear winners. Anyway, that did nothing to disprove my thoughts on the whole discipline...

    Mrs P, did you mean V/M or D/W 4CC version was best (or both)?

    I am less concerned about the medals for D/W than I am about the actual FD score. I'm neither of those skaters nor involved with that program in any way, but even I feel gutted that after a season of refining and polishing this program, then skating it at their best ever at Worlds, when judges are the most generous with marks, only to wind up with their second lowest score ever for the FD. Somebody owes them an explanation on why their efforts didn't come to fruition.

    V/M. I thought D/W did their best version today so sad it wasn't scored as such (regardless of if they won or not).

    And while V/M haven't worked and polished their programs all through the season as hell?
