Caro's dress has a ton of illusion and it is all bunchy at the neck like an old lady's knee highs

:yikes: Kostner normally has great dresses, but that looks like a bad mummy wrap.

What's wrong with Tara? Her commentary is informative and she understands COP.

this is nitpicky but there is something like a cross of grainess and nasaliness that irks me

also, this telecast hasnt been bad but often I find she talks too much about herself

I see Carolina's skirt is once more attached backwards. :P

I didnt realize Caro won this w/o a flip or a lutz. While her footwork and edges make me all swoony, was her SP lead that high to make up for her jump content? it isnt as if the jumps she has completed were all perfect.

Come on Michael. Caro's spirals are mediocre at best. I'll give her the footwork, but the spirals?

I think this might be a really nice program if it had decent jumps and a dress that didn't hurt my eyes.

you are looking at the free leg, look at the edge on the leg that is on the ice, it is really deep and nice

I'm a bit behind on my DVR so I'm just now watching Flatt. She looks fantastic, and the program is actually engaging. I'm impressed!

They barely showed Caroline Zhang, but what they showed didn't look good- she looks out of shape...

Wagner looked in shape, but didn't skate like she was- she looked exhausted. Or maybe just defeated... Korpi also looked exhausted during her footwork. Guess "training" hasn't really hit for any of them yet... guess you really don't want to peak too early, but it seems like in non-olympic years GP and GPF would be more important.

Love the attitude positions in Carolina's sprials. So, she's injured. That explains a lot. Her skating is very refined. Glad she did as well as she did here. Agree she's had better costumes, this was meh.

i guess caro won by default, murakami screwed the pooch and rachel had downgrades

I think she getting better with her positions, but what I really appreciate is the speed and depth of edges she achieves on the spirals.

Despite the program being a complete implosion, I really enjoyed Murakami's skating. Very energetic, and lots of speed. I've never seen her before.

But man that's a lot of sparkle on her costume!

Definitely, and the clean line and extension of her free leg are beautiful. So tired of seeing spirals in which the skater puts all her energy into getting the free leg as high as possible (no matter how and ugly it looks.)
