I'm with Doris on this one. I don't like the can-can for a polka, they skated it okay technically but did not really have a great polka expression - due mostly to the can-can music.
I thought Chock & Bates vastly improved especially in speed. They will challenge Hubbell & Donohue for the 3rd spot at Nationals.
Me , too , in regard to P/B's CanCan. It made the whole polka section just seem off to me . I don't know enough to be able to watch closely and keep count.. ..and it seemed off-time enough that I would have thought they'd score poorly in the polka..
It also bothered me that they had to slow the music down. Haven't seen any of the FDs yet, but didn't care for their Stones program from the French Masters , so I have reservations ..

I'm always unwilling to criticize the timing of dancers at CoC, because most years, the audio and video feeds are not well synchronized. I wait for the British Eurosport version, because they generally do a pretty good job of fixing the feed prior to broadcast.
And may I say that the ISU should ban those Sky Cam shots
May I add, as a note to CoC camerapeople: a lift is not the best time to go in for a closeup. Just sayin'...
FYI- Generally speaking, the host country provides the feed. The Director of the TV company providing the feed sits outside the arena in a trailer with lots of technical equipment. Earlier the Director watches the practices and makes notes. Once the competition begns, the director then instructs the cameramen on how to position the camera and take the shot.
