We’re woozy after this one, and it’s not because we stuffed ourselves full of cheese and talked like Maurice Chevalier all weekend, although we did do that. No, it’s from boredom. Here’s what triggered our malaise.

NBC hates ice dancing, especially Virtue & Moir, Péchalat & Bourzat, and some Russians. Where are Doug Wilson and Dick Button when you need them?

NBC hates pairs, too, especially Pang & Tong, Duhamel & Radford, and Denney & Coughlin.

Patrick Chan wins without falling down. Jason Brown catches our magic. NBC hates Michal Březina and Florent Amodio. Yan Han celebrates the season.

Ashley Wagner chooses the wrong music. Adelina Sotnikova spins right round like a record, baby. Anna Pogorilaya cuts it up. Samantha Cesario goes Gotham. Christina Gao doesn’t have her best skate. Rachel Flatt gives us a scare. Tara Lipinski tries to not tear her hair out. And Tori has some good news and bad news about Rostelecom.

Want even more Ice Queens? Of course you do. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, and you can buy some great merch at Cafe Press.

P.S. Before we recorded this episode, we came across the Skating Lesson’s interview with Alissa Czisny in which she talked about a comeback this year. After we recorded the episode, we came across Alissa’s statement that she’s dropping out of sectionals and seemingly is retiring from competing. It’s been a joy watching Alissa over the years, and The Ice Queens wish her nothing but the best.
