The Zhangs must have taken extensive ballet classes. I barely recognize them. The arms are softer, the postures are so much better. His shoulders are still hunched here and there but he does not look like a truck driver anymore.
The programs are aweful though...typical boring choreography from Nichol. It does not help that the short and the long are too similar.

I agree those programs aren't doing them any favors. Lori needs to retire from competitive choreography.

:)Lori can hit her slumps , and need a shake up , now and then...but this is so head and shoulders above the grim stuff V/T have been saddled with this year ( including costumes ).. and above what S/S had last year , it could make for an interesting World's.

( I say that as a V/T booster.)

S/S had great programs last year and not at all grim :shuffle:

I'm not quite sure I'd call either of S/S programs great, but they weren't nearly as great as what they've had before.

:)I said V/T's are grim this year.. I just said these programs of the Zhangs are better than S/S's 2010 -2011 programs.( actually I didn't mind their SP, so much..and it has nothing to do with how well they skated them.)

I have a feeling it'll be a copy-paste of Miki's SP... Just like Yuna's was identical to Kwan's LP

Mao is so much more lyrical and fluid than Miki, she couldn't copy Miki even with effort.

It's not a copy-paste of Miki's SP.

You're right! It's a different arrangement that what we always get, I'm excited now!

Scheherazade is the new Carmen - so overused!!

Nothing new about it. It's right up there with "Carmen" in stale music category 101 for figure skating. Along with "Phantom of the Opera" and "Swan Lake". Ugh, hope Tarasova stays away from her costumes this season. Last years worlds' was just...:eek:

But on the bright side, I'm glad to see Asada updates. I hope this season goes well for her.

S/S' choreography and transitions were infinitely more complex and original.

These programs of the Zhangs are the same old, same old stuff Lori's been doing for years. :shuffle:

I agree completely. I don't understand what it is with people thinking that non serious programs are always of lower artistic level than the serious ones, no matter how well they are choreographed and played. Especially in their 'Pink Panther' program S/S had great choreography, worthy of a good exhibition program, plus they were really into character, especially Aliona Savchenko.

I'm still worried about Z/Z.Dan is too tall now,that make them have some problem on technique side,and because of that Hao has some injuries and will get injury if they continue for sure...sometime I hope they can find a smaller girl for Hao,he's one of the best male pair skaters now,and if he can have a partner suit him,he may have much less injuries and much longer skating life...but seems it won't happen.

maybe many people hate Lori,but for me,Zhangs programs are much better than their former ones,that's enough.I don't think we should judge one's work by their other works.and,after all,Lori's programs for Mao and Kostner are good.

I don't and I am happy that she has a music with highs and lows and strong accents because otherwise, her programs are boring to death.

I miss that period of her becaue that's when she had the best speed.
