I agree with Kyran in his blog when he says that 'Maybe it was the blue of the studio but the judging felt cold/clinical, as if school teachers were remarking on poor students'

He's right, it did feel a bit cold, the whole 3 judges set up just doesn't work, not helped by the fact that only one judge has technical skating knowledge (albeit some of the best skating knowledge in the world).

Emma, it has to be said, is out of her depth (let's be honest, she's only because she was a Spice girl, that train has long left the station) making some ridiculous comments on Sunday about facial expressions or something (so dull, I can't even remember them!)

Jason, is just Jason, his well rehearsed 'off the cuff' remarks are more of the same old, same old, but I do think he's right to be there. No doubt he's prepared more controversial remarks for the coming weeks. I sort of don't blame him for setting on Angela Rippon, she came over as a bit too schoolmarmy (& scary ) for my liking.

I'm [i[almost missing Nicky and his abstract marking and nonsensical comments, the way he'd dig himself into a massive hole get all flustered trying (& always failing) to scramble out of it.

I don't know if Karen had a 'promotion' as such, I can sort of seeing their reasoning in putting amidst the skaters as she was always championing them but it's not working. She can berate Jason just as much on the panel plus it was great to know she was in slapping distance

Thoughts anyone?

Have to agree as well.  On the whole the changes made by ITV have worked really well - and the new professionals seem really good and of a high standard (unlike SCD).

However not replacing Nick and not having Karen on the judging panel is in my opinion an error.  Without Karen the Judging panel seems to lack any warmth and is all rather cold and definitely misses the expertise skate wise of both Karen and Nick.

Whilst i understand Karen's coaching role has increased - being both a judge and coach has not affected her judging on the panel in previous years and hopefully after the two qualifying rounds ITV may reconsider the panel for the rest of the run

It seems Karen now in a supporting role to Chris and Jayne on the Ice.

Don't get her new position on the tv line-up tho???  She's just sat infront of the participants?
Isn't that what Chris and Jayne are supposed to do?
She was better off as a judge, but can't see that happening
 anymore.
Next .. she'll be off the show too, joining Nicky.
Next David Hasselhoff will be on the judging panel!!

I would like a fourth member on the judging panel, but only someone who knows about skating!!
