  1. Well that style gets points, so it works. I don't think Anna is a bad skater or anything, she's obviously very good. She was just really hyped up when she was recovering from injury and Sasha's quads started getting all that attention (in a 'well just you wait until Anna comes back, she's got quads AND she skates like an angel' kind of way), and that hype carried over into her components when she did come back and start skating again.

    And they have Rika in the same competition, who does not have tiny jumps, either.

    Where do I sign a petition for Liza's 3-turn out of her 3A to be considered a creative exit? (Watching juniors, Sasha's 3-turn out of her 4T got positive GOE so obviously it's possible.)

    I said that, but not like that - that I don't get as upset about the lack of UR calls or the PCS being lowballed because at least her total score looks okay, even if that's a completely ass-backwards way of getting her score right. In the context of seeing most of the other Japanese ladies just being lowballed, I still stand by that, at least she got the scores she deserved a few times. None of the Japanese girls (except Rika) has ever got any total scores that make any sense in the context of how the other top ladies are scored. But it's not like I was okay with the scores being ass-backwards like that, it was just preferable to the alternative of just being underscored in total. Which is what we have now. No more silver lining, just dark cloud.
  5. But I truly do not get the Anna Scherbakova hype. She's a nice skater but people have been going on about how she's the complete package with Sasha's jumping skills and Alena's artistry, and she obviously is a good jumper though she's having problems with that quad in competition, and she's a good skater, but she doesn't have anything close to Alena's smoothness or flow on ice at all. When I read comments about Anna S I feel like I'm watching a different skater altogether. She looks as choppy in skating as Sasha is, just with a much softer style.

    It kinda balanced out when they weren't calling her URs, then the total looked about right even if the split was wrong. But now they're calling them and still lowballing her on components, so her total score looks nothing like what she should be getting.
  7. Alena is so beautiful. Her skating and her, so absolutely beautiful.

    I really feel for Satoko. Her PCS should be a good eight points higher if we're marking them all on a scale relative to each other.

    Zhenya's doesn't seem to have a problem going downhill.

    I decided to sleep and am catching up, but watching junior and senior ladies in one stretch, I think I've finally figured out the real reason why those skaters left Eteri during off-season. It was to get away from those music cuts. Can you imagine listening to ALL of them again and again for multiple runthroughs?

    Now everybody give Michal a medal for saving the last three by embracing the full rock uncle theme.

    I think Shoma having something he gets on the podium backwards is tradition now.

    I know better now, I really do know better now. *clicks anyway* *incoherent mutterings rising to shouts*

    The camerawork didn't focus on his face so much, so it was actually easier watching on screen this time, too. It was much easier to appreciate his lines and posture.

    So basically this one is down to the judges, between gold and silver. Shoma does have lovely lines and extension, and his StSq is very nice. But boy his jump GOEs are wild!
