I officially lurrrve both V/T's SP and LP. LP needs a lot of more work but it's :swoon: potentially.

I don't usually have an aversion to violin music, but V&T's selection is grating. Nice program though (much better than that disappointing SP), despite the irritating music.

I love B&L's LP. I don't care if I'm the only fan this season. I've loved so many unpopular skaters in the past, I'm used to it. :D

I didn't find it grating at all, although I would vastly prefer them skating to an orchestration of Chaconne.

Very un plushenko program. None of the arm flailing until the last music cut. I don't know how I feel about it. I was expecting a masterpiece to Romeo and Juliet and got this. It's not bad, just not what I think he's capable of.

And mostly he did not interpret the music that was playing, but that is nothing new :lol:,

I just watched Plushenko's LP.

I loved it. He's always been a very good technical skater, but I'm seeing more artistry in this program than what I've seen in the past. This program suits him. Great job!

Quite surprisingly, he did :slinkaway

I appreciate how much Trankov looks like Jimmy Darmody from Boardwalk Empire, and Tatiana is behaving like Jimmy's crazy sexy mother. In that sense, (the way I'm imagining it with Boardwalk Empire plots, not Godfather), this program makes a great narrative.

Thank you all for the reports and the links. :)

I really like Ksenia Makarovaís LP - but Iím a fan of her skating in general. If only she could get those jumps together. Looks like she eliminated the flip from her jump layout and she is now going for the Lutz instead of it. However, it always looks to be landed forward, so not sure if this was a clever move. I keep my fingers crossed that it will be ok by the time of RN. :)

Good to see Adelina Sotnikova having her confidence back again. Iím looking forward to see her at Nebelhorn Trophy soon! :cheer:


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.
I must have missed some off-season talk??? Looks like Iím not the only one wondering about that? :confused:


2. Artem Borodulin 209.14 SP (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dlj2pg5XwY&feature=youtube_gdata_player) He's still regressing as well.
Well, at least he didnít quit skating as rumours mentioned some time ago. But oh dear, his skating looks like if he is no longer focused on skating, but practising on a recreational level beside having a full-time job/studying. Jumps were not there, spins look laboured and he seems so slow across the ice. I want him to skate again like he did some seasons ago. :wuzrobbed

It wasn't even off-season talk. There was a lot of talk about it during either Euros or Worlds.

I find it funny that there is a mix of both the Bach Chaconne and the Vitali Chaconne in VT's FS

LOVE Sotnikova's programs. I can't belive how grown up she looks but I hope she can wear her hair in a sassy ponytail or even half up half down for the LP. It will suit the style better. She's clearly still got issues with the lutz but her other jumps looked fabulous!

V&T's SP is really cheap in terms of choreography. The opening section is just embarrasing in its amateurism but the elements looked very clean. The LP looks much more promising but Maxim's totally half arsed :drama: at the end was hysterical. I'm sure they'll have more commitment to the choreo come the GP.

Polina Korobeynikova's SP she went clean today, 3F-3T, 3 lo, 2A :cheer2:
I hope she gets consistent and heals her minor foot injury by GP

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?

Zhan Bush missed the test skates as he is recovering from illness. As far as I know, he won't be at Nebelhorn Trophy. Konstantin Menshov goes instead (Konstantin told me). Hopefully Zhan then can go to Finlandia Trophy.

That was my reaction, too, especially towards the end. The frantic choreo didn't match the music.

but hope the best for her, too
