In the high-camp world of figure skating, nothing beats the first few seconds before an ice dancing team's performance, when they theatrically strike a pose. Is it hilarious or repulsive? We can't decide! But it certainly can be strange, especially when NBC gives us a personable portrait of Ben Agosto and his Julia Roberts look-alike partner, Tanith Belbin (the Americans who won silver last night), acting all next-door-neighbor-like, then cuts to their performance, where they're leering at us with the zonked-out, sexed-up expressions of Amsterdam window hookers.
