My video of M&C's new SD lift
Great first post of the new thread!!
I like the new lift and am happy that they were able to end with the music. The crowd response seems positive!
Thank you so much for all the info and starting the thread.
The judges want them to be faster.
Scroll down for a more pics of the new SD dress (or practice dress -- who knows?)
eta direct links:
I think this one was the one already posted:
here's a couple more:
If the judges think D-W aren't fast enough, where does that leave everybody else?
I'm so happy they changed the SD lift, the last one looked more like a lift that had gone wrong.
I'm hoping that's just a practice dress. It looks a little too "I don't have a costume budget, let me grab my bedazzler"
OT: I'm really excited about the Shibs' FD, it looks good from the clips TandBfan posted.
Thank you so much!!! I really love the color on Meryl, it looks AMAZING. And I actually like the dress, it's pretty. I liked the previous one too, though.
And the lift is way better than the SLC one. Well done.
Thank you TBFan!!
I too like the new dress better, but I'm still waiting for her Black and White dress with a tiara!!
Anyways, Does anyone know what day/time the SD starts??
It is today at 8:45 PM EST.
Finally!!!…a wonderful article…I loved this one!
ETA: My favorite quote about teamwork "I read the menus," said Jacqui, "and she reads the road signs."
That was really fascinating. I didn't know that Charlie had more of a leadership role, at least when they were younger. They all work together so well; it's remarkable how little drama and tension has emerged over the years.
Thought I'd post a photo of M/C really quick before I head out to see the Short Dance!
Lovely. I think Meryl's dress is growing on me. Or maybe it looks better in motion. (well as in motion as you can get from a still photo)
I love the back of the bodice more than the front. Something about the front bugs me..not sure what. The color though is divine.
It looks like a ballet leotard that someone's mom bedazzled with some silver wickety-wack. But I agree that the back is gorgeous, and it looks like it moves beautifully.
Not sure if this was posted...some new pictures.
How does Meryl not get dizzy with her head back like that and Charlie spinning her?
but... Jason Tatsuki
Good luck to Meryl and Charlie
I hope they skate well but more importantly enjoy themselves !
Tobias/Dev lift... C'mon Meryl and Charlie!!
I wouldn't swear to it, but I think Puffs might be a Skate America sponsor.
Great skate by Meryl and Charlie!! 75.70
Great start for Meryl and Charlie. What was their score in Salt Lake?
I'm always nervous for them in the SD. I think it's because of the OD that shall not be named.
They scored 73.67 in Salt Lake.
75.70 here in Detroit.
Level 4 on both Finnstep sequences. One of the callers was Canadian. No USA on the tech panel. Level 3 on the midline.
two 10's for interp & timing
Wow! Can't wait to see the video!
So happy to hear they got their levels on the Finnstep!
That's awesome about the Finnstep levels! Wonder what caused the midline to be level 3.
Still, such a great great skate for so early in the season. I'm over the moon happy
Thank you for the videos!
I'm so excited for the Shibs FD. It's perfect for them. They're so funny and Alex is such a drama king, this is going to be brilliant...and they're foot work is so neat and precise I have zero worries this will look like an exhibition.
Loved the SD.Loved the costumes. I think the pink dress looks very pretty on her.The one from SLC was blending in with the ice.
Can't wait for the free dance tomorrow.
Beautiful! They look confident already and its just the start of the season! Great score...I'm though over the level 3 for the midline, I thought it was gorgeous. But as Tanith was pointing out very nicely, it only takes one not so clean edge to drop a level. I didn't see it, but then again I'm not the caller! And Tanith didn't say that about D/W, she had mentioned it earlier on in the competition when she was talking about levels and how to look for subtle mistakes. She's a great commentator for ice dance, btw!
She really is. TBH, she's the most informed intelligent commentator we've had for the US in a while.
I'm loving Meryl in different colors and the music is growing on me. I really love the program now.
I even like the eggplant with the teal...okay I might be on the Davis/White crack, but it's so good .
Sometimes when D/W and V/M fail to get level 4s I wonder what the hell a level 4 looks like...cause they've pretty much set the bar at an unattainable level.
Still not sold on that pink dress. But since that's only thing I have to nitpick about..
The program is much better than at SLC. Still room to improve which is great. Best of all, they looked like they were really enjoying themselves and into the program. Selling it like crazy. I can't wait until December when they another 5-6 weeks of training under their belts.
