    I seriously disagree with I/K being ahead of Shibs. Want to see those protocols.

    They do, by birth, they are Japanese citizens because their parents are.

    Heard a lot of early criticism about this D/W FD, but I think it's starting to gel!

    It's likely a loss in levels, which I expect from them this early in the season.

    ETA: Actually they lost by 2.06 while the PCS gap is 2.68 points. I/K definitely is overscored in this regard.

    Yes, this is another one I liked a LOT better on the second viewing. For half a second I sort of almost believed a romantic connection which actually I think is huge. (And this comes from a HUGE D/W fan).

    Meryl and Charlie skated that well. The program is improving.

    Yeah, possibly. This is fixable.

    Shibs competing for Japan is an interesting thought. But the USFS would never release them early, so they'd have to sit out a year (2 years?) of international competition before they could represent Japan, and that would likely stop their skating career momentum. Unless of course, the Japanese Federation makes a BIG Gift to the USFSA.

    I love Davis and White, but the music annoys me. The dramatic ending was beautiful though!

    That was much much better than Skate America. I love the new details they've added and I think the bells add a great dramatic touch to the music.

    Yes, I have never seen anything like that second to last lift. Also, even on the internet their speed compared to the others is quite obviously better.

    Meryl and Charlie. Shutting it down as usual. Can't wait to watch it without a skipping feed.

    D/W skated great! I think the theme/performance is coming along, but I find the music cuts a bit abrupt.

    Wouldn't the Shibs have to give up their US citizenship to skate for Japan in the Olympics? Really doubt that's something they'd be willing to do...

    With a 9.86 in INT, it looks like the judges agree with you...

    This should make for a VERY interesting GPF with Voir.
