    Well, Weaver and Poje have a beautiful FD. Very different concept from Bob/Sol
    I think that a lot of it will come down to tech. I'm not expecting anything from the judges though - I feel like they may need a bit of time to start giving Bobrova and Soloviev higher PCS.

    I love Kiira's skating, but I find her inconsistency completely exasperating. She can normally hold it all together in the SP, but it tends to fall apart in the FS. Hence, I will reserve Judgement on where she is this season until I have seen her LP. If she skates as well in the FS as she has done today in the SP, then I will be absolutely delighted. She is a very elegant skater.

    She deserves to be in the lead, but 69+ is over the top. However, watching the videos so far, all of the scores are inflated to an extent

    Hope your enjoying your day in the arena watching the skating

    I think it's the best program I have ever seen from her and she skated it extremely well.

    For me it was easily the best SP.
    I liked the program a lot as well - although I hope she changes her costume to a light blue - I think she would look better.

I was happy to see him go for the quad and he got through the program without making HUGE mistakes. You can tell he's done the training and he has the jumps, but he's just to put it all together now. There is quite a bit of room for improvement, but he's right on track.
    I agree with all you said. For his first competition back, I think Johnny did really well. I'm proud of him. He said he was serious about this comeback, and it showed in the performance. Yeah he didn't win, but he didn't have any major mistakes, he performed quite well, and he went for the quad. I'm feeling positive. I agree with you, I think he's on track so far. Fingers crossed for the long program today.
