    Too bad they didn't pair up Oona King with George Galloway. :p

    Robin Cousins, Karen Barber, and Torvill/Dean are among the show's hosts/judges too.

    This show should be in the Trash:D Can
    Why can't T/D use their talents to teach PROPER skaters :rolleyes:
    The commentators descriptions of the moves make me :rolleyes:
    I do like Matt Evers though :swoon:

    This has got to be one of the mortifying skating performances I have ever seen...that dress is just major train wreck waiting to happen. :wideeyes:
    Feel really sorry for Pammy, and :revenge: the costume designer.

    I did enjoy T/D performance with the drums at the beginning.:)
    I believe there's no DOI Tour this year anyone know why ?
    I know I always say this but I wish T/D would have been coaches like Krylova Zhulin Zueva etc .Seems they enjoy skating too much and £££ .
    It would be a thrill to see them at worlds this coming week with their own teams .

    :rofl: The point of every final is that the final two to get to skate THE* Bolero. They've done it for the last, what, 7 years now, they have well and truly gotten their money's worth whoring this out!

    *the panel's constant reference to THE Bolero is soooooooooo grating.

    I am pleased that Beth won. IMO she was the better skater. The judges blatant favouritism towards Matt and their disgusting reaction to her winning spoilt my enjoyment of the show. I was especially surprised at the behaviour of Robin Cousins, I expected better from him.

    After seeing Chris's choreography efforts every week on DOI, I'm glad he's not coaching. Obviously the couples on DOI are far more limited in what they can do, but my god everything he produces on that show, for the couples, the pro skaters, his routines with Jayne feel like they've been done 20 times over & weren't even that good the first time round. I would love to see Robin stepping away from the judging panel and back into the rink as a coach though.

    If some of you are "offended" by T and D, why do you watch?

    IMO they had consistently over marked Matt and under marked Beth throughout the series. when she was announced the winner they were slow to applaud and looked quite disappointed. Robin later tweeted this message-
    I take nothing away from Beth she really upped her game and was great. But for me Matt and Bri gave three of the top performances in ANY DOI.
    Brianne (matts pro dancer tweeted-
    Just want everyone to know that @mattylapinskas is the true winner in my eyes. He's the BEST celeb we've ever had!!! I love you bubba x
    Sad news about Tony Gubba RIP

    I agree about the comments about T & D choreography.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlAqxir0YKw see 0.55 and 2.35 for judges reaction.

    I don't think Coco was offended. I think criticsm of T&D for DOI is fair game, and despite regularly being annoyed by the ice panel and the some of the things others have mentioned I still watch it and enjoy bitching about it ;)

    A "lack of available venues and dates"

    Which is why there's a last minute put together unofficial tour at the same dates and venues the official tour would be at.
