    I want some Pink Panther action too.

    But I guess the network feels the need to set the stage for Ladies. Makes sense, since they clearly have no interest in featuring pairs or dance ever...meh.

    According to Charlie Brown, there are three things you can't help but stare at: a babbling brook, a crackling fire and a Zamboni clearing the ice.

    ugh...poor Rachel...it looks like she's just doing a practice run-thru at home. NBC has no mercy.

    Rachael's issues have been well discusses, but she really should get her money back for that choreography - it's just dated and tragic.

    sigh. Racheel's in betweens are totally dismal. She looks like she's skating a practice session without any intention to actually skate full out.

    it went on forever (quoting Tracy) for both Rachael AND the rest of us too.

    I'm really sorry - happens to me a lot, but thankfully not today.

    I really don't get it. How can they generate interest if they don't televise the discipline? And the USA has been SO much more successful in ice dance these past 5 years than ever before; how can they build up athlete interest if they don't televise the event?

    That makes far too much sense for NBC.

    Okay, off the bitch wagon for now. I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the top 5 ladies.

    Yes, I'm excited to see all of them in HD today.

    Miki's skate didn't speak to me yday AM, but it did on the broadcast - ditto for Kozuka.

    Duh, didn't know this was on until now. Was going to drive up to the rink for synchro but the weather is iffy. Haven't gotten to see Akiko's skate yet. Yea for Jewish Japanese programs! You can't help but root for Akiko, knowing what she's been through and seeing how excited she always seems to enjoy skating.

    I love watching Akiko Suzuki. So much joy in her skating. She looks like she truly loves to skate and skates for no other reason.

    Alka Seltzer boy is creepy.

    Sorry to hear that Rachael's miserable FS was shown in full, while D/W's FD was shown only in part. Oh, NBC, you know nothing.

    Yeah, Murakami is going to have trouble with those jumps in the future with the swingy entries and high-kicking picking leg. . . NOW would be a good time to fix these things! She has a weird tendency to sort of bounce around while stroking into a jump, too.

    Call me a softie, but I never get tired of those "She doesn't realize it yet . . . NOW she does!" moments.

    Me too. I thought it was so cute.

    I really enjoy Carolina's skating in this program. Very mature and elegant and beautiful. Much less frantic and coltish than in the past.

    Heh, me too, Wyliefan. There are skaters whose skating I really dislike but the "WOW, [surprise] I did well" reactions are always enjoyable.

    Really love this program for Carolina. It's like it forces her to slow down and make the most of every movement and/or really invest them with meaning. Agree with the poster who said that the colors on this dress need to be more intense. They're pretty but the do tend to disappear on the ice.

    Love how Alissa's dress sort of says "water" and a lot of the music sounds like water flowing.

    I think this is a great program for Alissa. But there is something insanely calming about this music. Like every time it comes on, I feel a sudden intense urge to fall asleep right then and there. It makes it really hard for me to watch Alissa skate.
