    Any resemblance to Scott Moir on the part of Paul Poirier looks like it is deliberate. I don't think they're going to stand out until they develop their own particular style, which I think is the biggest problem of this SD: it has no individual style.

    Whose idea was the little box anyway? I haven't decided if it's helpful or annoying.

    I like the TES box.. it gives a good sense of how someone is doing.

    That would be helpful if the TES value wouldn't get corrected after the act.

    My guess is it's a new feature from NHK (the Japanese network). Skating is big in Japan and the network is probably trying to add features that draw viewers. I'm also undecided about it.

    That TES box was there for some other competition, too, I think. I forget which one. But it was taken down after only one session of skating or less. I think it was Skate America, but I don't remember which channel..

    Although the commentary is in Russian (I think), my sense is that these lower ranked skaters are being compared unfavorably with Davis/White... since I can hear their names frequently.

    I must say that I agree. There is a real difference in quality between these skaters and the best skaters. Still, they are enjoyable, and some of their highlight moves are quite nice.

    You never know, he could be insulting Davis/White! (Just kidding. But I really have no idea!) I've enjoyed the Reeds and this current (Russian?) team, though.

    I need more time to decide what I think of the TES box but as of right now it's sort of distracting to me. I appreciate the idea of watching it tick up as points are earned, but since it gets adjusted so much under review it seems kind of confusing/pointless...

    Interesting that the Reed's have the highest PCS.
