Plushy Long program (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp2Gb6KBmLs&feature=youtube_gdata_player)

I thought he was skating to Romeo and Juliet?? It's very bare most of the program, the last 30 seconds are fun.'

Oh wow. I was expecting R&J and waiting to be trolled but this is just magnificent.

It's a little bare at the moment, but this could be a really great program for him. I just absolutely love the steps in The Swan. He's softened his arms a little which I think will help. Not sure about the Danse Macabre bit. But you know, he does it every year! Just when I thought he couldn't get any better, in that last part, he grabs his heel and does a Y. What the hell?! Where did that come from?!?!!?!? :eek::lol:

Great 4S, and hope he's gonna bring the 4Lz at some point, he was training it this off-season.


Gachinsky's Short program (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr1jUreH2v8&feature=youtube_gdata_player)

Oh wow, I love it! Really great expression and I love that he is very pointedly showing a lot of edge control. Not too worried about the falls/pops. I love how he uses his hands.

Artur and Evgeni both look physically great, too. I think maybe Artur is a little bigger in the chest, but at 19 he should finally be over his body growing. Now we will get a chance to see what he can do.

I want to cry. Was / is she injured or sick? I hope she is skating in the later GP events.

Also, this music highlights how unrefined she really is. Just so totally off. :(

That is one weird Turandot edit.

Don't worry, she has 4th and 5th event, which means that she still has nearly two months to get ready. Considering how much improvement was in Adelina's skating since the previous test skate about 2 weeks ago, I hope that 2 months must be enough time for Polina.

she is a bit slow compared to her 2011 season
her LP was doing well until at the middle part with 3 consecutive mistakes after another :(

this LP is too Strong for her, she is a light skater
Black Swan is for strong skaters that can carry it like Asheley , Adelina , Yuna etc.

Polina K. told me that she was injured and had a longer break. Her feet hurt in her skates. She said that right now things are not going so well for her. Hopefully she'll be fine soon.

B&L's SP is lovely. I like that dress on her and imo, the jumps look better.

V&T: I wasn't feeling it. For an off ice couple, you'd think they'd be able to bring some heat to the performance, but no. They both look hot though.

Plushenko: It's gotten to the point where it doesn't matter what he's skating to or what he's wearing. I'm just riveted. Love him.

Sotnikova LP: After reading all of the griping over it I was expecting something completely horrific, but it's not bad at all. I really liked the the program.

Me too! I enjoyed it. I don't even mind the Christina Aguilera howling. Maybe it's the 90s child in me.

I think I'm on the verge of becoming an S/K uber. Both programs are fab. I hope they pass B/L this year. Actually, what I'd really like is for both of them to pass Kavaguti & Smirnov, but I doubt that will happen.

Thanks. At least there is an explanation for it. As pointed out up thread, she is skating in the latter events so she still has time to recover and train.

My dream Russian nats:

1. B&L
2. S&K
3. V&T

Totally agree, although I hope S/K really do surpass B/L this year :shuffle:

Not me, but then I'm the lone B&L uber around here.
