    Fun Disson Christmas Show on SUNDAY

    The Disson show, "Holiday Moments on Ice" (I think that's the final title) is on SUNDAY, Nov. 28 - that's tomorrow, Sunday - at 4 pm in EST. Check the listings in your locality for the right time. It really was a fun show with some lovely Christmas music and Ilia was skating BIG!! Lots of good stuff from Katia, Jeremy, Yuka, Peter & Naomi, Joseph and Brian B.

    The show was not without its challenges - not so much on the ice as with the wildlife interfering with the arena's electrical system before the show and threatening to melt the ice.

    The media covered it well:

    Is this the show that Manheim Steamroller play the music for the entire show? If so it's not worth watching on TV since Every. Single. Performance. will be chopped up by the camera panning to the musicians and we will see random bits of skating interspersed with random bits of the musicians.

    Well they just managed to keep Kulik in the frame for the entire performance of Deck the Halls. Great camera work!

    Yep, maybe Mannheim Steamroller isn't pretty enough to focus the camera just on them. Or the skaters this week are too pretty!!!!! Or NBC is listening to us.

    Jeremy's Chanel tux in that little teaser a while ago! Kulik is so brilliant, still. I love Boitano's joie de vivre--there's a guy who really enjoys his life.

    Naomi has become a real performer, something she lacked as a competitor. I guess all it took was life experience and a lot of shows.

    I've seen enough of Chip Davis--especially that belly to the keyboard shot that deprived us of Jeremy. Get him off my screen.

    I don't even like Mannheim Steamroller. Their arrangements are repetitive and too often are one tempo and one volume. I don't get all the fascination with them.

    The music makes me feel like I'm trapped in a period piece. I half expect to see kings, queens and noblepersons start doing synchronized dances in a great hall.

    That said, nice to see Katia and Ilia!! I haven't seen Ilia in ages, and I'm impressed that Katia still has all of her jumps, including the double axel.

    And was the little girl in the clip where they're all eating chocolate Liza? Whoever she was, she was beautiful!

    YAY Jeremy's Merry Gentlemen program was great. And almost 100% visible. Thanks for that.

    Liza looks a lot like Ilia.

    WOW! You weren't kidding. His Silver Bells program was so powerful. He's one of the greats and it was fantastic to see this commanding performance.

    BRAVO Ilia!!!!!

    But Mannheim Steamroller is innovative and putting a fresh perspective on old standards. And their Christmas music is the greatest ever recorded!!

    My husband knows where Chip Davis lives. Much more of this and I'm going to be tempted to go write my feelings on his fence.


    *I would do no such thing. I swear.

    Screech - Yes, the pretty little girl in the chocolate ad is Liza. She's adorable, and as bright and personable as can be!

    Best moment of the night: seeing Ilia perform a lovely low sit spin!

    I hope this is repeated on Hallmark on 12/24. I screwed up my recording.

    Thumbs up

    I loved watching Naomi and Peter. I miss their skating. Something else I noticed-Brian said Katia, Ilia and Liza. (Was kind of hoping they'd all skate together.) Where was Daria? Is she in college? Good show.

    I loved Naomi and Peter, too, and have missed them immensely. I'm so happy I had an opportunity to tell Naomi so. Peter overheard and added that the all dance show was airing the same weekend, and I was so happy my DVR was recording the show.

    Katia, Ilia and Liza were there, but only (only?) Katia and Ilia skated. I did not see Daria and assume she is completing high school right about now.

    OMG, Jozef Savodcik! I haven't seen him in forever! He's still fun to watch!
