    Loving this SD. Still think its need some additional choreographic touches, particularly in the beginning before the midline step sequence. But wow, just...wow. I was watching their blades, the little "bobs" of the head to the music during one of the sequences. I can't wait to see it again at NHK

    I actually dislike that black and white MFL dress very much. I hope Meryl does not wear anything like it, ever.

    Neither. I had something similar to this in mind (with black gloves too) http://sta.sh/029b1c9tritg
    The original MFL dress is ugly, so I would never want Meryl to come anywhere close to it!

    It was posted awhile ago but here is Faiella/Scali's MFL SD. I don't think this type of dress would suit Meryl at all.

    I like your idea Jiazumi.

    It took a hell lot of time, but finally people perceive them as world's #1
    I hope so. I have been suspecting the Russians and French have been laying in the weeds looking for a sign of weakness in either D-W or V-M so they could set about torpedoing one of them in a bid to their teams up. (We've seen it before. Remember the odd results Fusar-Poli/Margaglio and Denkova/Staviiski suddenly got in the fall GP season leading into the 02 and 06 Olympics, respectively?)

    I think Davis & White have improved so much over the past couple seasons. They were always athletic skaters, but now they have a control and grace and effortlessness about them. I was impressed at the British Eurosport guy's reaction. During the program he said simply "power with grace" then at the end of the SP he was inspired to this:

    "Such athleticism and attack ... So much sharpness and attack and energy and yet a lightness and deftness of touch. ... They skate fast, they skate clean, they're sharp ... It's that razor edge of sharpness allied to the grace and the softness of delivering the dance as though it's easy and free. You're in the ballroom and it's just all happening."

    I think the ISU always likes hearing their sport described with words like athleticism and attack. IMO for a while now D-W had a clear advantage over everyone else when it came to athleticism, but others were stronger at clean, grace, and effortless. IMO, Meryl & Charlie have pretty much closed that gap now.

    You guys are nuts. If the dancers are consciously ignoring the stories and the characters from the film, then the last thing they want to do is dress like the very characters that they are not portraying.

    I like the change to the SD lift very, very much! Tanith remarked in the IN coverage that having Meryl's leg across Charlie's front the way it does in this new version makes it tricky for him to rotate down the ice, but you'd never know it from the performance.

    I like your idea Jiazumi.
    I liked the original dress in the film, but hated the replica worn here. I think it's one of those dresses that just can't be replicated successfully.

    They were incredible They've really closed in some of the gaps in the choreography since SLC, everything looked stronger and more precise.

    Protocols!


    Hm..3 Level 3s. So still plenty to build on.

    I can't wait to see this

    Wow, they were amazing. I'm glad they got the level 3s because their score is already so close to what they got last year at Worlds and there's still so much room for it to build and grow.
