    Will this be the year Shae-Lynn finally gets her due?

    Only 1 more sleep ... I can barely contain my excitement!

    How exciting to see Oksana Kazakova once again! I remember when she literally 'burst' upon the scene, partnering with Artur Dimitriev. She had a wonderfully expressive face, tremendou flexibility and competitive grittiness.

    TV Guide interview with Kurt Browning: Kurt Browning pulls double duty on ‘Battle of the Blades’

    Beginning Sunday, Canadians will not only see Browning in his familiar gig, skating out to introduce the show alongside Ron MacLean, but he’s also in the judges’ seat alongside incoming judges and former competitors, Jamie Salé and P.J. Stock.

    To up the ante, the traditional judging table is also gone, replaced by a cut-out of sorts where the judges will sit with their skates on, ready to go.

    “If we get inspired to stand up and kind of mimic their motions, we can,” Browning tells TV Guide Canada. “By not putting us up on a desk there might be more interaction between the players and the judges; less of a barrier. Now anything can happen — I might be skating for my life, away from some 230-pound mad guy in figure skates!”
    Very different!

    That may be so, but they had not yet been officially announced by BOTB. That announcement happened on Friday, with M-F and S-L being the last 2 announced.

    I was a bit impatient & kind of rolled my eyes when I found out the opening show would be a retrospective of the first three seasons. But I have to say that I am actually enjoying it.

    Totally enjoyed watching the two hour recap of the past 3 seasons. Brought back a lot of memories and allowed me to tell hubby a few of the back stories about some of the skaters and hockey players. I think it's actually a good idea to have a recap like this along with introducing the "new kids on the block".

    I think I'll be in skating heaven ... and it begins in 7 days!
    Crazy about sports!

    The "look back" show last night was really well done. I think I'll keep it so I can rewatch it again. So glad I watched it.

    I agree on all counts. It was definitely worthy alternative programming to the Emmy Awards

    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    Fervently hoping an ice dancer finally wins it all this season!

    Looking forward to the new season and saying a prayer that any injuries will only be very minor ones. I was reminded just how dangerous this competition is, esp., when they replayed the scene of Marie-France being dropped on her head, accompanied by the look of absolute horror/guilt on Richer's face, as the big guy stared down at the crumpled girl passed out on the ice!

    And which ice dancer would you like to win? Hee hee. This could turn into the Shae-wuz-robbed-the-last-3-times thread!
