I love watching Akiko Suzuki. So much joy in her skating. She looks like she truly loves to skate and skates for no other reason. :respec:

ITA!

Alka Seltzer boy is creepy.

Sorry to hear that Rachael's miserable FS was shown in full, while D/W's FD was shown only in part. Oh, NBC, you know nothing.

Yeah, Murakami is going to have trouble with those jumps in the future with the swingy entries and high-kicking picking leg. . . NOW would be a good time to fix these things! She has a weird tendency to sort of bounce around while stroking into a jump, too.

Call me a softie, but I never get tired of those "She doesn't realize it yet . . . NOW she does!" moments. :)

Me too. I thought it was so cute.

I really enjoy Carolina's skating in this program. Very mature and elegant and beautiful. Much less frantic and coltish than in the past.

Heh, me too, Wyliefan. There are skaters whose skating I really dislike but the "WOW, [surprise] I did well" reactions are always enjoyable.

Really love this program for Carolina. It's like it forces her to slow down and make the most of every movement and/or really invest them with meaning. Agree with the poster who said that the colors on this dress need to be more intense. They're pretty but the do tend to disappear on the ice.

Love how Alissa's dress sort of says "water" and a lot of the music sounds like water flowing.

I think this is a great program for Alissa. But there is something insanely calming about this music. Like every time it comes on, I feel a sudden intense urge to fall asleep right then and there. It makes it really hard for me to watch Alissa skate.

Mao used to do that, too. It's cute when they're young!

If not doing a flip and a lutz is what it takes for Kostner to skate like that, I'll take it!

I wonder if the posters complaining about her lack of content are the same ones complaining about how Chan's PCS go up when he lands quads. Hmmm...:) But even if you don't have high level jumps, you can still score a lot of points! And why not :)

Absolutely and in fact this is the first time I have actually enjoyed her skating and haven't been upset or :confused: by the judges high marks for what always looked to me like a demolition derby for one. :lol:

(Hey I think I might trademark that one - DDFO for when there is lots of speed and energy but no control and lots of crashes.)

It looks as though the GPF will be aired in Vancouver next Saturday.

I still can't believe that D/W won the gold medal and NBC couldn't find 5 minutes to show their complete FD??? How many men did they show and we didn't have an American in the final? Couldn't they have chacked 1?

Idiots at NBC. :duh:
