    The top 3 were all great. Nice changes to V/M program.

    Definitely. I'm starting to get excited about this season. That battle for the Olympic bronze medal in dance is starting to look pretty fierce, too, with the kind of scores the teams right behind the big two are throwing out.

    Good to see some actually great skating for once. This GP season has been a bit of a downer with all the withdrawals and lackluster perfromances.

    Now, now Ziggy--the first section of Voir's dance is lovely and there's a touch of brilliance in choreographing to the scat AND the beat. The rest is, well, a bit too cutesy-poo for me, but it is wonderfully skated.

    Looking over the results, the Olympic medal contenders did really well here. I/K were nearly 8 points above last week's performance. P/B were nearly seven points better than CoC two weeks ago. And this is a season's best for V/M and the second highest SD score on the GP so far, as well.

    IA. Well, I was always excited lol, but I have no idea who will win the bronze.

    It was a great event, yes. A lot of interesting programs also. Best GP SD so far, IMO.

    That is a very apt description of how he looks at the start, heh!

    I wrote down that he was a little off-balance on the first set and they came out off-synch (one doing one more rev than the other) out of the second (although maybe it was the first as well, can't remember for sure now).

    They are the same to me. Generic Zoueva robots. ;P

    I don't think that things being 'in character of the dance' is a concept Zoueva cares much about. :P

    Having said that, V/M's program seemed much improved compared to its first outing and had lovely character at the start.

    I was firmly in the 'Davis/White are a sure bet for OWG gold' camp but this performance from V/M shows that the battle is far from over.

    Make that I would five for me. I get that the French wanted to stand out and really go a different route with their concept, but it feels too against the natural tendencies of the FinnStep. And I do appreciate the variation they're bringing to it, but the Russians were just glittering and bubbly today. It made me want to do the FinnStep!

    I would six. I/K were much improved today, and notably faster than P/B, and they maintained accuracy within that speed. I do like parts of P/B's SD, but I have to give the edge to I/K today.

    Wow, thanks for the laugh, you owe me a keyboard (was drinking water when I read that). Must watch for this move now -- or perhaps arena security needs tightening and a bunch of cattle prods need to be confiscated??

    Wow, I'm eager to see I/K's dance now. The comments are not from I/K ubers...so it must've been awesome.

    AWWWWW why do pesky things like work have to get in the way of my skating addiction.

    V/M changed the location of the twizzles and it worked out for them. Nice!!

    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.
    You are correct....the problem rests with you. That is why you are unable to enjoy a superb program!

    Maybe, but I don't slobber over this couple like you do. I do like V/M though I don't put skaters on pedestals.....but I don't think this is going down as one of their epic SD's. It's a real letdown.

    Yeah, it was DRAMATICALLY improved from last week, and not just the levels. It is very clear they and their coaches took the feedback they got last week on levels and other things to heart and have been busting their tails off trying to work on the program, despite whatever rumors on lack of work ethic may be going around.
