    Transitions were also complicated but they made it look so fluid so kudos for them. Their hard work pays off!
    YES! This is exactly what I thought.

I neither had desire or time for that, just wanted to share my positive two cents instead of picking up error that many others before me already pointed out and analyzed ad nauseam. Oooh. It's not that difficult to guess. If you want I can make asterisk for you and edit my post to add - (bar this one bobble on lift) but I can't be bothered.
    That's what I thought you thought.

Like most other posts above, look at the rest of that skate and how nearly perfect it was, with one slightly sloppy moment, compared to a Russian team that was just a little bit sloppy by comparison the whole way through. The irony is, if they had nailed that lift like P/P usually have done this year, their score would have been close to 100 and no one would be having any conversation about this other than wow, what a phenomenal program. It was! Loved it and looking forward to more from them at Senior.
    A lift must be judged on how the parnters are handling each of their roles. Almost Total failure. That's not what that lift is suppose to look like at all.

    Also, this trend of tearing the russian girls down - by the fans of Russian ID even - because they are not as good as some other girls is tiring. I'd say it's time to move on, but on GS that never happens.
    The reasons of Russia's ice dance collapse should be explored. A big part of the problem is the girls. Their skating skills are going way downhill. So when discussing a major Russian team why should there be expectation of world gold and Olympic gold?

    So I finally watched this. Parsons and C/P the class of the field by far. Also I may be alone on this but I think Shpilevaya/Smirnov are better than Loboda/Drozd. L/D have a lot of speed but they are sloppy and not well matched IMO. S/S have great posture and they both have star quality.

    Tough results for M/C and A/T but maybe now the transition to senior will be easier since there will be less expectations.

    People talk about L/D's speed, but I find that they really slowed down considerably throughout their FD. It added to the messiness of their performance.
