I also think Jeremy can use a bit more staccato strategically placed throughout the program. My apology to Jeremy for I didn't think he could quite pull it off. He already does it well. I may develop a man crush on him as he gets better.

Maybe the arm movements at the beginning need a tweak? Loved it after the first jump. Great music that builds in intensity, as does the movement. Wish I could have seen the footwork more clearly. It will be interesting to watch this develop over the season.

And I think it looks like a mature Jeremy.

I love Jeremy's new SP. Very mature and the music is amazing. This will be a fantastic competitive SP for him, I hope he nails it every time. I saw him live at SOI and he is so lyrical and smooth which does make it difficult for the staccato movement of a flamenco but I thought it looked great on him and hopefully he will be able to perfect it as the season goes along.

Abbott needs more force and attack on some of those turns and upper body movements. There's a lot of potential with that program :hat1:

What better way to stretch artistically than to take on a kind of movement outside his comfort zone and master it? Every confidence JA will have made it his own by later in the season.

Smokin' program--apparently "the boy next door" has grown up!

I think what he is doing with his arms will cause charges of "flailing".

Why? While his arms are quite active throughout the program, his movements are controlled and intuned with the music. No uncontrolled excessive arm flailing from where I can see.

He is just doing so much with his arms! And while they looked pretty good there who really knows what the stress of competition will do to the control.

Abbott's SP, from today's "All That Skate":

After some repeated watching I decided that I absolutely love Abbott's SP, and it might become for me a program on the same level as his 2008/ 2009 Tango, which in my eyes is as good as it gets.
When I first saw Lambiel's Tango, the amount of arm movement seemed distracting, but after a little bit it just seemed an absolute part of the program. IMHO, same here. Perhaps Flamenco requires crisper movements- I am not a specialist- but I actually love constant shifting between fluid and flexed arms, all with perfect musical sense.
OK, I'll stop gushing now.

I like Brian's flailing. :D

Nah, only Plushy flails. When all others do it, it's "artistic." ;)

Yes, when Evan Lysacek does it, the biased Scott Hamilton calls it "passionate." :huh::rolleyes:

Are you saying Abott is channeling Plushenko ? :wideeyes:

I guess...
