pani, actually I&K were at least as fast as V&M at TEB, even faster I dare say. Of course, they were not doing the elements cleanly, so who cares.

It's easy to be fast when you're doing a ton of cross-cuts into elements and are never in a closed hold. :shuffle:

I am not talking about FD and SD - Lena and Nikita is always fast. But at practiece maybe they try to show cleaner skating, so didnt skate that FW so fast?
And when I-K in FD all dance skating separate from each other or in hand-in -hand position, where they could lose there speed? ;)

So V-M wasnt fast in Paris, Marie? And programs was very bad?

Did I say the program was BAD ??? I in fact stated in several thread that I liked the program and that it was IMHO very well skated and fast. No as fast as I used to remember but still pretty fast considering everything (like it's so early in the season and so on).

I&K are not always that fast, and they don't tend to skate cleaner in practices. I don't know why, but they tend to skate clean in galas :yikes:
And I agree about the openess of that program which makes it a lot more easier than V&M's FD. I never ever stated anything else. Just that you can't say they are slow because it's not the case at all.

I didnt said I-K was slow - i said at that practiece video they look slower in one step sequence.
And i know, I-K could skate really fast, like they did in SD at WCh, but could skate not so fast like in FD at WCh.
At gala they didnt need to pay a lot off attention to levels of the elemnts -so they could made lift, where Nikita stay on both legs, not on 1, like he did in competitions, or didnt pay so much attention to the clearn edges.

And "Funny Face" is a great job, becaus even if i dont like this kind of music, its very inettersting to me watch this dance from the begining to the end.

I agree! that FD seems to go by in, like, 2 mins! I have already watched it so many times (both SC and TEB versions--I love both but maybe prefer SC). They are just so amazing...their close positions, deep edges, soft and rhythmic knees...but it is not just that they have impeccable technique but that they are such gifted performers...their musicality is insane!

Does anyone think they will get their level 4's by Nats and Worlds?

i think they will the step sequences are becoming so smooth and flowy and tracy commentated on that, the circular step sequence in the fd was a highlight.

In the SD: Yes
In the FD: Less sure.

what do they need to do to improve their circular step sequences?

I do. As someone else had noted (and I am so sorry, but I cannot remember who it was), the footwork is where they really show their superiority. They have such mastery over difficult edgework. They make intricate footwork look easy--they are never pressing into it with their upper bodies--they instead maintain strong posture while performing their steps. I think they could achieve level 4 footwork by the GPF.

With fall D-W had higher components score, them V-M - amazing.
And what a bad pattern dance they skate today :rolleyes:
So if they will skate not graete, but good, they will have 80 points?

Yes, i am T-S uber, all know. But i really have 1 question - with that mistakes they hade 9,29 for Performance/Execution - the higherst mark. How this could be?
I mean - OK, they could have even all 10th, but 9,5 or 9,0 becouse today they had nmistake, no?
