The joke is PCS stands for Please Cheat Secretly and I have to agree. The PCS has never been based on the actual skating that takes place on the ice; it's based on the skater and their reputation/positioning in the sport. Who believes the judges are actually evaluating based on all of the criteria listed in the rules? There isn't enough time to go through and accurately evaluate all of that in the space of time that the judges have to place their scores. PCS is nothing but reputation scoring. The better your rep, the higher your score. That's why I'm not even bothering to get upset about the scores anymore. What's the point? That's how this system works and it's not going to change.
I agree with rallycairn that Julia's scores will continue to rise. I expect her to be around 34+ in PCS in the SP if she's clean in the individual event, and probably around 70+ (if not higher) in the FS. The Russians want a medal and after Julia's two sensational performances in the team event, if she replicates those performances her scores will climb even higher. It's not right but that's what's going to happen.
