    I dont think the strapless looking dress is doing Caroline and her new physique any favors

    however, purple Evita looks lovely

    Terry Gannon is BACK, hurray!!! Tara Lipinski and Michael Weiss are the commentators. Glad NBC decided to show only clips from Asada's and Zhang's FS. Full free skates of Korpi, Wagner...

    Ashley times some of her jumps and spins right to the music, good. She really doesn't look quite ready for this event.

    Wagner was not impressive. Damn. Another year MK could have got that 10th title.

    It really is different watching in HD and on the big screen than on the computer. Rachael's dress isn't flattering either. Why don't the US ladies go talk to the Finns for costume advice.

    If a performance like this means Ashley will finally save her best stuff for Nationals, I'm okay with that.

    Her tights aren't great either, they look like they have a dull reddish cast to them.

    I think last season's LP suited Rachael much better than this.

    I think this is a major improvement for Rachel in expression and her hair is MUCH more attractive. However, she has to stop doing that catch foot camel spin. Isn't there something she can do to get points with a different spin without subjecting the audience to that? She cannot achieve a pretty position, her back will never allow her to do it.

    Love Flatts hair. Much more flattering. The donut spin is not her friend. If she had some speed she would be much better. Is there anyway a skater can learn to skate faster at this point?

    I don't have a complaint with Rachael's hair or body. They're fine, but she has never worn flattering dresses. Ever. The color if fine (at least it's not pastel), but the style does her no favors. Her skating was fine. She's never going to be attention grabbing like Alissa or Mirai, but she's solid and could win at Worlds. I wouldn't count her out.

    "Little" bit of a choppy landing???? I do love Tara as a commentator, who would have thought it? And having Terry back in the booth really makes this the beginning of the season, yeah!

    Kanako's dress looks like 3 mashed into one.

    Is this Mao's heir apparent?

    Still, this dress and hairstyle are far superior to the hot mess she was sporting in her SP.

    Murakami's costume is worthy of Tarasova. My eyes are bleeding! Great skating, though.

    Agreed, and Michael Weiss isn't doing too badly either.

    If Mao Asada is her idol, maybe that explains the dress.

    ETA, too bad about the jumps because that is a nice program otherwise.

    I disagree. Why must I be subjected to Tara. Once her Hollywood career went up in smoke she ran back to the skating world.

    I actually find Michael Weiss' personal reflections illuminating. Also, I'm predisposed to think well of him, hearing what a great guy he is (from someone touring on SOI, and his scholarship foundation).
