I remember Trankov himself falling after throwing Mukhortova in 2010 (either the Olympics or Worlds).

Thanks for all the replies! Yes, he didn't look like a happy camper - and it seemed to me as if he looked like he was angry with himself.
Well, that's a... bizarre end to the GPF, I must say...
And for all the talk about the audience, this audience applauded louder when he fell the first time than when she nailed the first throw (which was terrific)
V/T's fall on the throw was really scary! I'm so glad that nobody was hurt. She could have stepped on him, and he saved her from falling by grabbing her leg I guess. But that being said, their score is a real joke. How could they get 130+ with that skate? I think P/T was robbed. Both Russian team had sub-par skate. V/T did great other than the falls, but those are solid major falls. B/L were messy throughout although they did almost everything. Can't understand the score any more.
K/S were robbed big time! After watching their program I believe more and more that it is very important which team(s) the federation promote. K/S's program is superior in choreography, that last lift alone is to die for, and they executed it cleanly and nicely. Definitely the best among the three Russian pair today.

I would score:
I can't stand this game anymore. 8.82 8.54 8.64 8.82 8.86 for V/T's PCS really? 8.82 for choreogrphy? are you kidding me? 8.64 for peformance?? 8.86 for interprtation?? just wanna slap on the judges' faces.
I don't know what to say but holy cow, how could they win. There was a long break during the program because of that scary fall. Their PE was still higher than the chinese pairs. What the ??? No second throw element. I thought it was enough for them to finish 3rd in the LP. RIDICULOUS!
the Golden Era
I never think I would say this B/L should have won
Yet another highly dubious result. Bazarova & Larionov were the real winners and deserved the Gold. V&T's FS was a mess and how the judges could award those kind of marks for the that program is beyond me
I love B/L's short but the long just OK. B/L really need to improve the SBS jumps, no unision at all.
I used to love V and dislike T but now I started to hate them. What they received was just not right.
It's a bad program in all sences for V/T. There was no clean skate of it yet.The score was huge. I hope they find out what's the matter. Maybe this program is TOO difficult for them to skate:(
The phrase "the breakdown of law and order" comes to mind.
