Yes I like the detail in both dances....after I watch the whole thing, I like to go back several times and watch posture, head movement, expression, and hand movements.

euterpe just to clarify: I think D&W are a brilliant team on a different level from the rest of the field, just as V&M are. I do like D&W FD. I just preferred the SA version, better than COR one, so don't get your panties in a twist.

I actually think it will depend on the day, as to who will come out on top tween these 2 uber talented teams, as both couples are trully deserving gold medalists. Each of their freedances this season are equally amazing, but in their own unique way. Right now in the early going of the GP, it's D&W ahead by a nose. I agree they should be so far in terms of the FD - as D&W FD is more fully developed at this point in the season esp at the technical level. I think they still need some miles to bring out the full emotional performance end of things; which is difficult to do as a waltz, is a waltz, so not much of a story to tell (in an obvious way) to help keep things fresh and other than expressing the lilting waltz mood by moving along properly during each performance. V&M on the other hand along with W&P, having captured the characters properly, now have to concentrate more on increasing the technical side of things, in order to accrue more points, now that they have the emotional sorytelling side down pat.

I am drawn to dances that touch me on an emotional or aesthetic level 1st, or next ones that display amazing technique merged with the aesthetic and dance style in a wow or unique way, that was my point.

My fav SD's of the season: V&M, P&B, W&P, C&L.
My fav FD's of the season V&M, D&W, W&P, P&I, Hubbells.

There are other teams I like and respect who did not make my fav or standout list, but who deserve good marks anyway it's just that the actual material, program concept/music choice, or the execution of the program by the team was not as strong or confident, or did not touch/connect with me, as much as I hoped it would do for this time of the season... For example Shibutani's are a great young team, but I was not as wowed this season by them as I was say, by last's season's amazing FD, hence while they did not make my current list of standout's above, by no means do I think that they don't deserve the points they get for what they do, do this season. But that could change over the course of the season as their programs develop. I hated P&B FD first time out, was more neutral by SA, but by TEB it has grown enough that I can start to appreciate it. True I have natural affinity for most of the Cdn dancer's, but I can still rank everyone pretty fairly, example hands down D&W were better than V&M last season, and so far they are better at this point in the season, but that said I really like both programs from V&M, and I really only like D&W's FD this season, although the SD will score well, it does not wow me as much, but still much better than the rest of the field.

Liking something more does not mean it automatically should score the highest.

I also don't think that where you once were, reflects where you should be automatically either. Past ranking should only count as an expectation for where a team should be, but the actual reality of what happens on the ice on the day should be able to fluctuate from comp to comp, during the season, allowing for momentum to build or not and thus ranking not ground in stone, till the final comp at world's...

Any chance the P/I you're referring to is Paul & Islam (CAN)? Please tell me that I'm not the only one who adores their FD this season!!:D

I will waite until Nationals to judge about P-I FD. We saw it only 1 time - i wish to see this FD more time during season ;)

for me personally, i don't think so.
for me personally-they aren't much better than

cappellini & lanotte, pechalat & bourzat, bobrova & soloviev, shibutani & shibutani.

i can see them fightingf or 3rd place. but like the above named they will have to fight each other for it. i would also add ilinkyh & katasalpov if they get better.

Have to admit these two are very quickly becoming my favourite team. It's nice to see them get some recognition for all their hard work.
