    Don't those two commentators ever shut up? I've just watched the Nadeau video with Ted Barton and Debbie Wilkes (?) and they don't say anything during the performance, but wait until the replay to give their comments. Unlike this pair – they talked all the way through!

    I like the camera angles and the way this skater was filmed. It looked dynamic.

    I actually don’t usually mind a lot of commentary during performances, but the inanities these two come up with. “Does he have enough left in the tank, Rod?” Ugh.

    Tara and Johnny in the States talk a lot but I usually find their comments interesting, particularly Johnny.
