    Anybody knowledgeable about Canadian dance have an opinion on whether Orford/Williams are a threat to Paul/Islam and Ralph/Hill in this season's pecking order?

    Surprised by how much I enjoyed Orford and Williams. They had a good skate.

    Besides the lime green dress -- I agree. That was a very lovely dance.

    I personally think they're not, but I haven't seen much of Paul/Islam or Ralph/Hill this season.

    I can appreciate I/K's technical ability compared to all the previous teams, but except for the first part of the program up to the dance spin, I just don't like the rest of this FD. I find it offensive for some reason.

    ETA: Elena does look ill or something. Flu? Bad sushi?

    I enjoyed this FD very much.. with the sound muted. After hearing that music at the last GP they were in, I could not stand to listen to it again! Also.. is Elena sick?

    Why do I/K act as though they're having some kind of emotional breakdown after every performance?

    Yeah. I wouldn't say offensive but I Just do NOT get it. I feel no connection to it and find it jarring and perplexing in a BAD way.

    I LOVED the beginning of the program.....didn't understand what people talked about....then it got weird....so I went to youtube and put on Hallelujah by David Buckley and silented the sound on the skating. It went together beautifully. =]

    She is definitely ill or something. She just didn't look well afterward at all, but she pulled it together and pulled out a GREAT performance. I never thought I would say this....but I like them! Favorite Russian couple ever.

    He doesn't seem too worried about her if she is...

    And she is in tears in the Kiss and Cry after a 96 pt skate....She is barely holding on....She is a trooper, and I love her.

    Is it just me or did Nikita look angry at the end of the performance? He did a hand gesture, but I missed if it was in triumph or anger.

    Thank you for responding b_i. I especially enjoyed Orford's skating and wondered about her reception in Canada
