    That was the best K/S have looked in a while. It's too bad they've never gotten help on their triple twist (or maybe they have and it just hasn't worked).

    M-T/M looked wonderful and the crowd being behind them like that just made the performance come alive even more. I know the crowd reaction isn't supposed to matter, but it was hard to not be affected by it. Great program

    I agree. S/S can do so much better than this. I mean compare that piece of crap with how beautiful and intricate "Send in the Clowns" was, for example. :/

    Elements were ok and their basics are great but that program was just so flat. Lacked light and shade, lacked highlights, lacked character.

    V/T are going to destroy them unless they bomb.

    Smirnov has very short arms so probably there's not much that can be done about that.

    Whilst still crashy, that triple twist was better than what we usually see from them.

    Of course that V/T destroy S/S. Russian federation is getting ready for Sochi. The judges are getting ready, too.

    Haven't watched pairs in quite some time. I'm very happy to see Pang at a healthy-looking weight. She was too thin years ago.

    Well it's not really funny, it's actually very sad.

    S/S's program was really flat but it's not like V/T have good programs either.

    I feel like S/S are done now. Whatever they do, V/T will be showered with 9s and win.

    Everyone has been skating great. I want all of them on final group.

    Overall Impresions:
    MTM : Best short program of the season. period.
    S&S: Their speed is beyond impressive. Aliona is a goddess.
    B&H: She needs more power in her skating. Elegant but they tend to get lost on the shuffle.
    K&S: Kudos for finally delivering. I havent enjoyed them so much since their Swan SP

    Much lower score for P/T than I expected. I'd have had them 4th but not by that large of a margin.

    I don't get how P/T gets PCS anywhere close to K/S. Ridiculous.

    Especially for a performance as cautious as this. You could see Tong is not well.
