Oooops, the thread is just about senior ?!
So, among the senior team, I don't like any SD.
But Abbott's and Sawyer's both SP and LP are very good !

My favorite SD so far is the one of Papadakis & Cizeron, a french junior team.
I love it too.:)

Not a void in sight! Utterly Dire.

The only thing of interest this year is the new partnerships in Russian pairs, although none of them have interesting CH either.

I like the fact that Korpii has FINALLY made significant improvements, but for the love of GOD land your jumps.

I don't know what to say about Mao :eek:

Or Kostner and her horrendous technical content, RETIRE> FFS

Takahashi has bottled out, seen all those programs before. Push the feckin envelope.

Abbott, yes you have a great feeling, but no - I'm not interested or moved by a skating geography teacher.

Amodio, you promised so much....:fragile:

Ten , YOU promised so much too...:fragile:

I'd love to take all of the US ladies, and lock them in a broom closet.
Ditto the Russian Junior Jumping beans. Wake me up when they're 18 and can still land shit.

The Stagnation is actually incredible and utterly depressing:
CapLan were better in the Junior Ranks. :eek:
D&W had better programs 3 years ago
The Kerrs are doing what they did in 2008
Pechalat are trying to be Delshoes
Virtue is now a gymnast and just won the world floor title

I don't know who any of the Russian men are!!!
If I have to watch an empty, no CH Van Der McCorkell programme again I'll vomit.

Leonova is so 1997 It knocks me off kilter.

Makarova could have challenged this season, had she found a choreographer with a brain.

Pang and Tong are still skating? Are you for REAL??

Who the hell were the Average Japanese pair and why did they medal at a GP

Katie Denney and her so called "Spunk", I call it TryfckingHard, can spunk off

That leads me back to Pechalat, because when the skating season is shit, at least there's Nathalie to look at.

Then I'm reminded that she's dating Square headed Verner who is also STILL skating. Like he's ever going to land shit.

I look forward to Halloween when I can throw Michael Huth on a bonfire for destroying two perfectly talented skaters and forcing me to hate/resent them for achieving with utter mediocrity.

[QUOTE=casken;2918211]Abbott's short and C&L CD sequence to "Que sera, sera" are the only things so far that I really like a lot.

Re: C&L -- Is it just me, or is anyone else shocked by the lift in which it appears that his hand is in direct contact with her, er, crotch? I could not believe what I was seeing. He did it again in the LP.

Me. The first time in Nebelhorn I though: hey! hey! hey! where's exactly his hand? And the first rotational lift in the fd, his hand finish there too.

Well, I don't think this is the first time this happens, but Anna is very confident with Luca :lol:

I thought D/W were going to skate to the storieline of Il Postino...that would be a great program for them, showing a romantic and mature look, They chose a very safe program.
Safe? I think they are taking a big risk to do a program that is such a departure from their usual style, and especially one that does not show off their speed. I do agree that the FD seems to suffer from lack of a story, but maybe that wouldn't work so well when the music is taken from multiple, unrelated sources, anyway.

I was especially impressed with Abbott's free skate. I have sometimes found his programs to be too quiet and, frankly, boring, but this one was so elegant and so well choreographed that it really worked for me.

since when a tongo in figure skating is not safe? And its a very Igor choreograph..Their lifts are amazing but what else they are showing in that program: Beatiful tango lines? no...romantic conection..no...passion..maybe. I'm tired of Igor haha

I gave up on men since a couple years ago so I didn't watch.

In ice Dance: Shibutani & Shibutani: Along with their programs especially the SD, their skating don't impress me much. This team has a flow but needs better skating. Other than the programs especially the SD, their skating is not fabulous.

I&K need so much work on technical details. They have strong basics and a beautiful glide and spectacular appeal (this is their first competition!). But their choreographer should work so much on the details! Not that they need to find loopholes in the rules, just have their choreographer read it.

And I want to ADD too: how would people think Samuelson & Bates would place if they competed here??

It is a big risk for Davis/White, since they are not the typical ice dance team who can do a tango at the drop of a hat. There's no literal storyline, tons of closed holds, and I think it's supposed to be more soft than aggressive (although I'm not entirely still sure about that) - none of these are what D/W are known for. Take into account that V/M are doing a Latin FD (I don't know how one can beat Scott's Spanish attitude, I don't know if it's different in Latin dances), and people are questioning D/W's connection...D/W have set a huge challenge for themselves. A tango might be boring for ice dance...but it will make them better skaters. I think this is the hardest program they've ever had. They're showing really complicated footwork here, which is something ice dance could use more of. I'll take that over passion in the first comp of the season.

D&W:
From now on, I really should watch their programs with the music on because I might like it then. At first viewing, (with no music) the SD looked bad and lifeless. Then, 12 hrs later, on second viewing, this time WITH the music on, it made it much better! Congratulations to them for going to get the first Worlds Gold medal for USA!

C&L look like they need a big push. They'll definitely finish ahead of A&V at Italian Nationals (A&V is somewhere in the league between the 2nd & 3rd french couples, they're not rising stars, not this year).

W&P: Still need to watch their programs.

Skate Canada is a weak field so we'll have to wait for Cup of China. F&S are skating there, and they deserve to be European champions this year. Also, Faiella is 30 :eek:

I think Sam/Bates would have medalled here...silver. Without a major error, that is. I think they are a stronger team than any of the others besides D/W. What a shame we didn't get to see "American in Paris". :(
