    Thank you!

    I like Ilinykh's dress/ensemble, just not for this. I see they have added no transitions since the test skate, so what I thought was them skating through their choreo was in fact their choreo. But the way ice dance is judged today, I applaud that as smart planning. They have good speed. I like the lifts, and the twizzles used the music well and covered the ice. Nikita does well with the demon character, but somehow this program feels really juniorish, even compared to the other two teams here.

    S&Z look much more polished and mature, but the program is a disappointed coming from Averbukh.

    I think I liked S&B best. They had the most going on in their program. That music sounds so familiar. They showed great speed and attack, and they look like they are seniors and have been for some time, especially him. I hate the way they are rushing through everything though, and her positions are so ugly. What happened to all the good female Russian ice dancers?

    I&K's program has stunning lifts and beautiful flow, but there really isn't much happening outside the elements, and the program felt disjointed the longer it went on.

    I'm a bit disappointed in both S&Z and S&B's FDs as well. Both seemed heavy and nondescript. Neither team looked as techincally sharp as M&K have so far either.

    Disjointed is a good word for I&K. It was like here's a famous piece of music from Swan Lake, and another famous piece of music from Swan Lake, and another. There wasn't much connection between them either. They seemed to be performing two completely different dances. S&Z and S&B both did the generic flingy Eastern Euro stuff. It's sad this is what Russian ice dancing has become.

    I hope whatever B&S are working on now is good.

    Are we really going to have to wait to CoC to see it?

    OK, I'll put it the other way: I liked the lifts in their program. This is my personal opinion.
    And I hated them

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I love what Artur has been able to do in developing his upper body...his moves look strong. Not enough jumps here to judge, but the one he landed was wonderful!! Liza looks goo, too!

    THIS is why I love this kid so much!! He researches his music, outsources things like the ballet version, and pays homage to the ballet program and dancer in his program!! I love those moves!

    I LOVE Gachinski too! He has a champion spirit within that is striving to emerge. He is so brilliantly talented, but it's such a shame to see him not be able to produce the jumps in competition that he performs so easily in practice. I would love to see him on any podium; he is definitely one of my favorites.

    Are they still with Morozov? Maybe time to leave. 3 seasons ago they were silver medallists at junior worlds, and since then the best they managed it 2nd place at same senior B competitions, 7th and 6th at GP... And now they were beaten by couples from Hungary, Czech and Slovakia? 9th??? That's not great! I think this has been their worst result within the last few years.

    Good, I am sure Krylova will fix them. But there is a lot of work to be done and that will take time.

    So I don't completely hate Artur's new SP on first view. In fact I kinda like it. I don't immediately love it, but I kinda like it. I'm sure it'll grow on me. But damn he was so close to sticking that quad. Chin up, Artur! It wasn't terrible!

    I actually quite like Liza's SP - the girl knows how to sell it, at least. Music is pretty awful, would be fine without that terrible vocal especially at the end; in some arenas I can see spectators muffling their ears, because I can imagine that live that's going to get pretty shrill.
