Oddly, what has happened in Pairs is that it's become almost like the CD in dance. All the top pairs use the same moves, so you see the same elements executed over and over again, because those are the ones with the highest point value. There are few surprises and a fair number of stumbles and bumbles, even from the best teams.
The end result is that Pairs competitions are, well, boring.
(And, I liked the CD, but I still get bored with today's Pairs competitions!)
