M&R Short program (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhKxv7eQjGI&feature=youtube_gdata_player)

I really like it, I think those errors esp on the twist will work there way out.

Yuko's dress is fug! Makes her look like a little girl. I like Smirnov's costume though. I think he looks kinda like Bo Brady with the hair and facial hair. I kinda like it.

I like Smirnov's costume (he does need a hircut!) but Yuko wore that dress years ago so I'm hoping she gets a new one (it is a test skate after all) although I wouldn't put it past Moskvina to keep it.

They look pretty good for a brand new program, I guess they just scrapped the "Cats"?

Smirnov also had knee surgery this summer too so I don't know how bad that was, it can only look better. It looked pretty slow.

Agreed. They look so mismatched. And didn't they use this music for an exhibition before? Very blah.

I do love Yuko, but Smirnov is so sexy and rugged, sometimes I wish his partner were more womanly, like Savchenko.

Makarova's programme is gorgeous, though it reminds a bit too much of her SP - looks like a variations on the SP rather than the LP.

KawaSmi - lovely, though I would expect them to finally skate something a bit more mature. Hey ho. Perhaps when she's 40 Kawaguti will be skating a 17y.o. girls programmes, till then we are stuck with her being 12. As long as she lands her jumps and throws... I also keep expecting from Moskvina's couples to integrate the elements into the programme (a perfect pairs SP in my books is BerSih's 2002 SP), yet it never happens with KawaSmi - you can always tell `oh, here are the steps' `here are the jump preparations' etc. It's elements, elements, elements and oh, right, there was some programme according to the costume

MarRog - all nice and lovely, but it felt like 20 minutes, rather than 3. The programme starts nowhere and goes nowhere. I also had an impression they only used half a rink (though it could be the recording, of course).

Leonova - I got bored in the middle. Am sure it's a genious programme, but I'll need a bucket of coffee to sit through

Yuk! Moskvina hasn't had a original thought for eons now but if she was going to recreate a new sp in a few weeks I would have rather it been that gypsy exhibition from last year. I thought that was kind of fun.

My general thought on all the programs minus Menshov and B&S SD.

I like B&S LP music but they still need more speed !

I'm not really seeing that much improvement in B/S - she's holding her head better, but she's still so bent in the middle & it just seems like there's no core strength. The FD has potential, but mostly it just makes me think of Zlobina/Sitnikov's far superior dance from last season. Disappointing.

Actually, I think there is a big improvement in B/S.

I don't like either of B&S's programs.

She did look highly improved in the SD dance though.
