    I don't get the arm and hand choreography she's got going on in this program.

    From 1:51 onwards, it's a solid effort. OK, the music is soundtrack cliche and the choreography isn't mesmerizing, but she's a very polished skater nowadays.

    It's the first third that makes no sense. The weird "Feeling Begins" pharaoh/Vegas waitress hands with music that requires frenetic movements that she doesn't really deliver on, plus that hideous wailing at 1:40. It's like two different program ideas have been stitched together incoherently.

    I think Shae-Lynn Bourne choreographed that program, if that explains anything for anyone. Oddly, I think Adam Rippon did her short.

    To be fair, it's a more interesting choice of program than her usual (Ashley's, not Shae Lynn's) so I'll give her that.

    I'm rewatching Pogorilaya's free and wondering why people keep using Firebird. There's never been a particularly memorable Firebird performance and it's one of the most overused pieces of music in FS history.

    Samantha Cesario felt we needed one this season and broke it out last weekend. As Carmen's go, it's okay.

    So, Lipnitskaya and Hanyu can spend about half their routines on their asses and still sail onto the podium.

    Oy. I saw that the U.S. ladies were really bringing it after the short program - Polina was in 7th, Gao in 8th, and Cain in 11th.

    Apparently, it didn't get much better after that.

    I read something about Hanyu and Yan Han collided in the warm-up and may have knocked each other out?

    Polina's free was nice. She needs better music choices, but she's the most interesting US girl for me.
