    Ilinykh and Katsalapov skated really well. I'm glad they have nice program for this season.

    69.07, new personal best!

    Might even beat Pechalat/Bourzat if the french make mistakes

    Woo Hoo very nice rebound for them after last week. Surely would have broken 70 if the twizzles weren't off.

    Pechalat/Bourzat - Great expression throughout. Quite an open program but with detailed and well presented upper body movement. Lift was a little strained, other elements good.

    I/K seemed to have more speed and attack. I am very surprised to see this coming out of my mouth but, level considerations aside, I'd probably have P/B second.

    The Russians were great and I'm not at all surprised they scored so well. So were the French. For me the Russians had a lot more freedom - more champagne if you will - but I felt the French had more detail, and kind of got the job done with a little more laser focus.

    And French into the lead with 70+!

    Their twizzles are often out of sync because Nikita always looks like he launches into them as if someone had just zapped him in the kiester with a cattle prod. Good performance otherwise - this is definitely one of the better SDs this season.

    The Canadians were lovely. Just class and romance. Wonderful.

    I loved that skate from V/M-it's really nice to see that V/M, P/B, and I/K all skated great today.

    Davis/White (read: Virtue/Moir ) - Near perfect performance. Technical elements were effortless. A lot of closed holds. Movement in character of the music. Very light over the ice, great flow throughout.

    On a personal level, this was another typical Zoueva-Disney-vomfest but I didn't expect anything different.

    Meryl and Charlie were here?!

    Actually, I'm sure I'll take flak for this since I dare to criticize the sainted V/M, but I find their dance boring. I realize they make the difficult look deceptively easy and it's of course well skated and deserves first place from what we saw from all the couples today, but I just feel nothing when I watch this particular SD. The fact that I'm not fond of the music selections doesn't help.

    Please not that lift again please. They have everything except lifts. How this lift is fitting the character of the dance?
