R&T SD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7O2fek4Ock&feature=plcp

Finally, a senior SD that I like. Too bad their FD is so bad.

I enjoyed their SD to "Quidam" (Cirque du soleil). To me it was the only one that looked as a whole program not like "Polka" and something else. I am not convinced about the FD. Jonathan said that it is still unpolished as they focused on the SD, but to me that was not the problem. All these "Tristan and Isolde" programs look similar to me and I just hate that "water gulping" where also everybody who ever skated to this music is doing the same (well, not much choice there to interpret this part).

Always voidy and trying so hard. Good for him to hit the two quads today.

I enjoyed their FD, even though it is similar to last year's, and they probably should not have used a Waltz but maybe saved it for next year if this is their favourite style. It is something that suits them well, but more versatility would be good. The style might be the same this year but the execution has improved.
When they started with another Waltz from "My Fair Lady" in the SD, I felt it really is enough. I feel the "My Fair Lady" theme suits them, but it is too much waltz from them.

Why aren't Trankov and Volosozhar doing the test skates?
And what about Plushenko?

I love the second part of R/T SD. Fortunately not another funeral program.

I think they look fresh and precise. Their Tango program is a conservative choice, but maybe good for their first senior year. Their Tennessee Waltz and Polka are cute. They are a young team, and they look young, and they still need to work on their expression.

Volosozhar/Trankov, Plushenko and some others will perform in the weekend test skates.

S&V's SD started off so well and then...Witch Doctor! Ugh, I'd love this dance if they changed that music.

Makarov's SP is nice enough. She looks like she's trying to imitate Korpi imo.

WHAT WAS THIS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
It is supposed to be the year that Sinitsina and Zhiganshin move up to seniors, not move up to kindergarten. Kustarova needs to be banned from ever making programs. In what world does "Ting Tang Walla Walla Bing Bang" scream maturity?

I have to disagree with you on this. I found this kind of boring. Actually I've hated most of the SD's as well this season. I really like most of Bobrova and Soloviev's and think that that one has the most potential.

apparently she doesn't understand they are skating for Seniors now :shuffle:
( Kustarova/Aleexa's records: are good in juniors but sucks when her students transition into Seniors )

the sooner they leave the better, such a shame if they will be ruined because
the basics are there in their expressiveness and they also have good levels .
I will say they are more talented than Bobrova/Soloviev

Is this what Sui and Han would skate to if they were ice dancers?

I actually liked it. It's certainly different :P

I think that junior levels may be judged less harshly than senior levels. Bobrova and Soloviev got the same tech levels as Sinitsina and Zhiganshin when they won their junior worlds.

PML, The "Witch Doctor" strikes again. :lol:

fwiw, I like the aggressive use of the polka on those programs, and for this one (IMO), the combo with "Tenneseee Waltz" is a bit more of a coherent match.
