New Season. New Look.

But no new episodes. Not yet, at least. But we’re making progress, right? Hm.

Anyway, one episode’s “in the can.” As soon as I get it edited and fix the iTunes feed, the 2008-2009 season will be underway!

Yes, I used an exclamation point. Thanks for hanging in there.

Brian Joubert – the triple threat. Stephane Lambiel jumps through the looking-glass. Tomas Verner and his gold-winning gloves. Kevin Van Der Perren brings home the prize. Kawaguchi and Smirnov get spazzy. Where is the love, Mukhortova and Trankov? Volosozhar and Morozov bring down the house, but not in a good way. Savchenko and Szolkowy charge the Russians with Kinko-ism. Pechalat and Bourzat get crazy! Delobel and Schoenfelder listen and learn. Khokhlova and Novitski get tight. Domnina and Shaballin – cereal skaters. Carolina Kostner, YOU’RE BORING ME! Kiira Korpi stuns the Wylie. Laura Lepisto doesn’t jump the shark. In fact, she hardly jumps at all. Sarah Meier is in a league all her own, literally.
