For what it's worth, I love that Plushy's footwork seem much better than before. I think it shows that he's really into working on footwork/step sequences.

Has Volchkova's magic worn off? Korobeynikova's LP is really quite terrible even accounting for boot and health issues. And Biryukova was just a total hot mess; the timing on the jumps was just so far off. Ho

Biryukova and Polina K. are not in good form right now :(
but Shershak looked in good shape at the test skates.

Not really, Alexei did 3S as single jump, Nastya just did a double one. I hope they can keep their last season's free program. I really like it.

what I mean when I said clean was landing the jumps on their feet and not their asses

Absolutely, just the longevity of his career in the top echelons of men's skating is inspiring. Obviously the original report about "7 triple axels" was a mistranslation/mistake, BUT if there's any skater that could possibly pull off that physical feat, it's Plush. ;)

Yeah, and I definitely saw him doing 4 triple axels in one program a couple of years ago.

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

I love them! She has the best posture and lines that I've seen.

B/S FD should be better without the crazy cut, but it's not en par with say W/P's FD last year, so no Worlds medal chance really. It's weird, I feel like this program probably works better with I/K or even S/Z. Both B and S's lack of attractiveness is a problem.
I don't know. P/G looks better, more together to me despite being slower. They've gone far. I won't be surprised if they pass R/T if they progress. R/T's FD is so boring.

Weaver and Poje's FD last year was a masterpiece and probably the best constructed dance of the year. It's unfair to compare. Anyway, I feel like this program has more potential than say The Feeling Begins. And lets see how the other medal contenders look.

From :smokin: in the SP to emo :drama: in the free, especially when she dies at the end :lol: Some mistakes by Max, even Tatiana's fall was his fault because she was sooooo freaking high in the air I think it through off her timing. That twist was sublime and that last lift was really good and should score well.

Now, I can't wait to see what S/S have to offer this season. Is it GP time yet? Huh, is it?

Oh, my, God.. It was breath-takingly beautiful!! I think they were totally soaked into the music and skating as one! This lp really makes up for that sp of theirs, wow.

Zhan Bush is scheduled to compete at Nebelhorn and Finlandia but I haven't seen any test skate videos posted of him yet - are there any?

In the roster posted in the Finlandia Trophy thread in Kiss and Cry, Julia Lipnitskaya, Zhan Bush, Bobrova/Soloviev, and the "Paradise" synchro team are the published Russian entries.

I just love Plushy´s new LP. The swan footwork is wonderful. This is going to be a masterpiece when it is finished. And of course, he rocks, as always. :respec:
