Apparently Bobrova and Soloviev's SD ending will be changed to make it more exciting because Staviski and Zhulin feel like the more quiet ending is keeping BS's SD below that of WP.

I thought it was the YP levels

The second set is always level 2! That's a problem with getting below w/p. Two parts they get N's. Need to work harder on Yankee polka!! Not just be more exciting. What does that mean?

I think that the YP is something that they will be working on as well, but I agree with his sentiments on the end of the dance. It could be more exciting, and that might get more PCS. Also, I noticed in China that it seemed like no one knew that the dance was over. I know that audience reaction isn't factored into scoring, but it can have an effect over time on the way that people perceive a couple.

I/K is simply disastrous - who would have thought I would miss last season's "Ave Maria"? that "speaking" section is pathetic - "Omg, he's shot" and dramatic arms flailing follows... aargh, I'm so frustrated - where is the team I saw in Toruń in 2009?

This part is killing me. I have to close my eyes of embarrassment during it, but then it's ok afterwards :)

Oh I have a completely different view on their FD. When that part (actually starting from the "Hey there esse" part) I start cackling at the top of my lungs because I find it so hilarious!

I think your reaction is better :D I should lighten up and take it easier.

I think part of it is that I've never been the biggest IK fan, but I love BS (they are my second favorite ice dance team after VM currently competing). So each time I see IK, part of me is happy that BS will have even less trouble taking back (or holding on to depending on who you ask) the Russian number 1 status.

But still most of it is me finding Morozov's "masterpiece" so bombastically awful. It's like the Friday of ice dance!

Well, in my most humble opinion, BS's programs this season are fantastic :P But, to be fair, I expect IK's short dance to be quite good. Looked lovely on the show video.

I love both of their programs, and I think that most of the community appreciates the fact that they moved to Zhulin, so I don't feel that it is my personal bias getting in the way.
Also, I'm excited to see the new ending to BS's SD. I'm assuming, however, that the new ending won't be performed until Euros.

The first time I saw the program, I thought they were going to break into jazz hands. :scream:

There's an interview going around on tumblr with Mishin that's been partly translated into English. It's mostly about Plushy's birthday, but there is some info about Artur as well.

Here we are:


- Alexei Nikolaevich, how does Artur Gachinski’s training for Cup of Russia go?
- After Grand Prix in Canada Artur underwent a thorough medical check-up and, in compliance with the expert’s conclusion, we had to lower his physical workload. It seems to me the recent trainings show that policy will bring its results. Already now Gachinski makes an impression more energetic and rich in movements.

- What was the doctors’ diagnosis?
- Nervous tension and the weakening of immune system. I think it isn’t mortal. We take doctors’ recomendations to consideration and take a number of allowed pharmacological remedies to normalize his psycological and functional state.

Nah - they were already making so many excuses about how bad of a coach Zhulin was. Now they can't make excuses.
As for the program being weak in transitions, I am more worried about the fact that they still don't seem to be able to handle it. They don't have the stamina to keep the program going in this state so why should Morozov put in transitions which would make them look even worse?
