Yipe, I gotta clear the DVR! It's 95% full (and a lot of that is skating)! :)

Thanks for the reminder roxynova. I've been looking forward to this particular show since it was taped last year.
It's really windy today (huge wind gusts) where I am and I will be very :( if I lose power and miss this show.

I hope they show both of Amanda & Mark's programs! :cheer:

Michelle looks fabulous.
and yay, it'll be nice to see Weiss again. Feels like forever since I've seen his skating.

watching 4CC coverage on CBC right now so only saw part of one number - Weiss - during commercial break and it was great!

Michelle looks gorgeous and for some reason I really want a Pandora bracelet. :lol:
I really enjoyed Michael; his program and the Riverdancers on stage reminded me of Dan Hollanders tap routine short program from Nationals years ago. I remember poor Dan missed every jump but the footwork/choreography made it one of my favorites of the competition. I'm sure he didn't enjoy it as much.

This has been the most enjoyable skating show I've seen in years.
Tanith & Ben (esp. the first number) were gorgeous. :swoon:
I'm really liking this music.

Tanith and Ben's first number was :swoon:. The second was lovely as well. Loving the show so far.
I have to agree with you on the music Cloudy. And I also have to say that this is the only Disson show where I don't mind the cut aways to the stage dancers or that at times they are the entire focus. Of course I've always been a Riverdance fan, even pre B&K FD.

Awww, Jeremy Abbott is announced this season's Cold-Eeze Improv Ice Champion! Way to go, Jeremy! :D:swoon::encore:

Kudos to Steven Cousins who was listed as the skating choreographer. Enjoyable show!

What a lovely show! I was particularly impressed with Shae Lynn's and Michael Weiss's abilities to do Irish stepping on the ice and to best convey the 'Riverdance' style. Todd, too, was quite wonderful, although we didn't see as much of him as we did Shae Lynn and Mike. I love dance as much as skating, so I did not mind the cutting away to the on-stage performers as much as in other Disson specials.
