    Scoring tech element issues aside (and that unfortunate trip in the Finnstep by Luca), I am liking the top 2 SDs more and more than when I first watched those programs at Skate America. Meryl and Charlie really capture the nuances of their music choices with all the detail in between the elements, even though the My Fair Lady music kind of lends itself to be more of a waltzy-feel.

    Or maybe Charlie let go of the blade too early on the catch foot set? I'm not sure.

    Any lack of precision and this set of tech specialists knocked the skaters down

    A very good short dance competition. The skating quality rose up several notches from Cup of China.

    Z/S -- Shame about the fall. Up to that point I enjoyed their performance.
    S/S -- I thought they did much better here. I was totally into their performance, smiling during almost all of it. Hope they are able to carry through and have a good FD.
    I/K -- Really like their program. The costumes goes along well with their music. I just wish there was a little more eye contact between them.
    C/L -- Kudos to Luca for making such an impressive recovery from that trip! I'm liking this program more and more.
    D/W -- they weren't perfect, but I saw much improvement in their program; and it can grow even more! I could watch them skate like that all night.

    Hoping for a marvelous free dance from all the teams!

    Agreed. I am just so delighted that I/K have such lovely programs this season. I've been hoping to see them skate like this ever since their compulsory dance at junior worlds. Their S/D is so adorable, I hope they can get their levels up.
