    I like this team so far. I must admit that their SD is a total miss for me. But their FD seems really entertaining.
    They have some interesting elements. Hopefully they have a future

    They did pretty good at Finlandia Trophy. They were 5th.

    Yay, they will skate at Rostelecom after all. Too bad for E/B but P/M are better a team and they deserve Rostecom spot more than E/B. Besides E/B skated Rostelecom last season.

    i like this team they have a fire to them. They are pretty exciting in a field of Russian dance that is really not, imo (in seniors i mean)

    Guys did a great job at Rostelecom, and it was nice to see that Betina seemed very happy with the score.

    These two were the find of Rostelecom as far as I'm concerned. Count me as their new fan.

    Here’s a fun TV interview with Betina and Sergey: https://youtu.be/zJbZTpexlyk
    They got this rocker vibe I really dig and this raw sexiness I haven’t seen in an ice dance couple in a long time. They looked really good and I love Betina’s boots. For your viewing pleasure, Sergey takes his shirt off to display his tattoos. I knew he had tattoos but didn’t realize he had piercings too. If any can translate the interview, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Yay, Betina and Sergey! 4th overall, and 3rd in the FD at Nationals.

    SD: https://youtu.be/s075CVJkl0c

    Was their original FD to reggae music before they scrapped it for Carmen? They mention something in this interview. https://youtu.be/To0ipPxSszg

    Starting my campaign to get Betina and Sergey to do a Penny Dreadful FD next year. https://youtu.be/MytkgUwhY3k
    http://i68.tinypic.com/if8rj9.jpg

    They would be perfect as Vanessa Ives and Ethan Chandler or even Brona and Dorian Gray. The music from the show is haunting at points and poignant at others. A Victorian gothic and horror FD would be something different from the current FD trends. Plus, Betina and Sergey both have the acting and performance skills to pull this off.

    Like, TOTALLY
    But, uhm, Brona and Dorian? Nah, please. Their story was ridiculous enough.
    I'd go for Vanessa and Ethan. I dream about Vanessa and Dracula, but I guess it would be too much for Sergey

    Like the Vanessa and Dracula idea!


    Here’s the gala performance. Fun number for sure. Loved how they attempted jumps and a pairs lift in this program.

    I love them, they are so off the wall and refreshingly different!
    I just wish they were a bit stronger technically, as they certainly have the ice presence to be top contenders.
    Send them to Igor Shpilband, as he is a great technician, and I feel they will deliver the character that Igor often lacks.

    Or even Zoueva!

    Yeah you are right, they are rough around the edges some times and Shpilband would be a fantastic solution for them, but I'm not sure it they will allow them to train in USA :/ Or give more ice time to Rumiantseva's group, cause as we learn from the interview they have only 2h ice time for whole group. It's super small amount of time, cause Fusar-Poli's group in Milano is on the ice 7-11:45, and 12:30-15 for example

    If they only have 2 hours a day, then that is remarkable the level they are! Chapeau!

    It will be very interesting to see how they will do against other recent senior teams like Loboda/Drozd, Skoptsova/Aleshin and Shpilevaya/Smirnov.

    I must say I am slowly warming up to this pair. Given the lack of ice time the improvement they made on their FD in particular between Rostelecom Cup 2017 and Russian Nationals was impressive.

    Their music choices for next season are also quite interesting;

    SD: Tango in the Madhouse
    FD: Master and Margarita

    I am hopeful that Volkov and Krylova can add the polish they need to set them apart.

    Straight in to the feels xD Master and Margarita SD was the first dance (with Yuri back then) I saw from Betina and it was an instant love.
