    The Tech Specs were USA and CAN. But the technical controller was RUS.

    Congrats to Vera and Yuri. I love both their programs this season. Their lifts look stunning as well as the triple twist. They really have to work on the sbs jumps though. I think I could watch Vera all day. Just look at her posture and lines!
    Scimeca & Knierim are a lovely couple. Wonderful team for the future

    That jump was neither underrotated nor downgraded, she just double-footed it.

    It looked like B/L were about a half beat apart from the start of the program through the first jumping pass, and then they got on track.

    Yeah, and Bechke and Petrov weren't exactly the most expressive Russian pair either. Them being more expressive than Bazarova/Larionov says a lot about how flat B/L are, since a lot of people felt B/P were boring (in comparison with G/G, M/D).

    I see no connection between B/L's skate and the music. I don't know if they know what concepts/feelings/images they are supposed to/want to portray through their dance. Vera's so called beautiful posture is beginning to annoy me too. It's as though she is wearing some sort of armour underneath.

    Their IN mark shouldn't be anywhere near the 7.79 they got (although it IS their lowest component). There just isn't any interpretation whatsoever in their FS.

    ETA: Dylan seems to be struggling a bit with the lifts. Has Kirsten grown bigger?
    I think that's more the new positions and entries they're trying. They've used one position for what, three years? I actually think Kirsten is slightly smaller this year if anything.
