    The judges haven't completely given up on them yet. They got higher PCS than Pang/Tong even though they've skated really well.

    Doris's comment referred to the camera work which has been terrible at this event, as far as I can remember.

    Oh dear. You people haven't even heard the god awful Chinese commentary yet. Good that Lulu was the guest commentator today, otherwise I would very much like to strangle the woman who does skating commentary with my bare hands.

    She reads everyone's ISU bio word by word with such conviction.

    I think I remember comments about the bad camera work at Cup of China from last year as well. I bet Doris remembers those comments as well. I have a feeling the Chinese broadcasters try to show how creative they can be - thus the coverage suffers.

    Yep - it's the worst camera work I've ever seen, and it always stays like that. I remember once them doing an overhead view for a bielmann spin...

    Whereas you do? Most people on the internet don't know each other. I have never, to my knowledge, met you in real life.

    But you don't know me at all, even in the shallow internet sense of acquaintance, if you think I don't watch this stuff obsessively. I have been up since 3:45 AM, first waiting to watch, and then watching all the SPs & the SD. Every competitor. I have watched a lot of CoC coverage over the years. And the camera work has always been dreadful, the audio fidelity dreadful during the actual skating, and since the overhead camera has been a constant feature of CoC the last couple of years, and it makes me both dizzy and angry.

    I still watch all of it.

    The camera is overhead on the spins because it is CoC, and they always do it.

    Yup

    Ziggy & Macassar88 know exactly what I'm talking about.

    If you don't know, I suspect you haven't watched all that much CoC coverage over the years.

    For a second I got really confused, then realized you switched the ages.

    Pang and Tong had me at the music. But that program needs some Russian power. Why oh why couldn't V/T skate to something like this? Too much lyrical snot!!

    Pang and Tong were great. Amazing after all these years together, they might get another medal at Sochi. I liked S/S's short. But I think V/T's short is more pleasing to the eye/audience. I think they were a bit slow as well, and of course, too many mistakes. For now, I guess they are fighting for Silver in Sochi. Gold seems out of reach. But I really am curious about their Nutcracker LP!
