    I've been sick as a dog the last two days and slept through this, but it doesn't seem like I've missed much. Well hope springs eternal--so here's hoping for better things from the last two groups.

    Oh yes, since Finlandia Trophy I am just loving to watch Tobias/Stagniunas... it´s great that she received the citizenship of Lithunia and they can compete at the Olympics, they are enjoyable!

    Just watched it during the re-surfacing, and although it is a bit slower than usual, it is not too slow. I think they've got the balance right.

    I won't give away the punchline in case anybody else wants to watch it. But it was good!

    Yes, that last lift has a really cool entrance, but all I could think of watching them was, why is he wearing something that looks like a cheap faux-tux t-shirt?

    LOL, I need more meds...

    Fantastic speed and attack from Coomes/Buckland.

    Tobias sold the program well but the choreo itself was a bit bland.

    I am sorry but Riazanova/Tkachenko should either retire or go move to the US to work with Shpilband full-time. They are not improving, they didn't manage to develop a style that would work for them, their programs are quite bland and underwhelming. They are just not going anywhere.

    I thought they were very promising when they started skating together but they seem to lack direction.

    They're Ice Dancing's answer to nembutal. Make that an overdose of nembutal.

    I found it interesting that Papadakis and Cizeron got a smaller ovation AFTER they skated than before. I don't think that music works at all which is a shame because they have so much potential. Still can't take my eyes off him.

    Papadakis/Cizeron have an explosive quality to their skating and they deserve better choreography.

    Ilinykh/Katsalapov *really* delivered, finally!

    Question - where did the -1.00 deduction for Coomes/Buckland came from? Did I miss sth while I sneezed?!

    Ilinykh/Katsalapov were pretty good. Solid 69+ score but looks like they missed a few levels. But alas, they should be happy with that performance.
