I think Marina looks great - she doesn't seem to age. One of the many beautiful Russian women in figure skating. I felt a real connection between Tessa and Scott and Marina in the KnC. Things just look happier this year to me - I have no opinion about Igor - but this looks like a good working relationship leading to Sochi. Also, sounds like Marina did allow more outside input with choreography - something a lot of fans wanted for them. I'm optimistic this will be an easier year for them and good lead up to the Olympics.

Oh, I don't think so... As great as their programs are, they are difficult, especially "Carmen". It will take a while for them to become smooth. It's not going to be a walk in the park by any means.

Thanks for the translation, Pani!

They are gorgeous :swoon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozjl2n7fPv8


I sound like a crazy fan girl who swoons at their romantic moments, but I just love every time Scott nestles himself into tessa's neck...lots of little moments in this program and Carmen. That said, his hug when they left the ice in the FD and trying to cheer her up in the Kiss and Cry are just continuations of their on ice magic and I just love it! COR can't come soon enough!

Longest YT video of the FD so far at 08:36 minutes, complete with slow mo and KnC reactions (or non-reactions).

ETA: Oops, the Chinese TV version is also complete and longer with the commentary of Zhao. But the above has a bigger screen size.



What did the Russian commentators think of it?

The reality is both teams had rough first outings. It's a first outing and V&M even said at HPC it's a demanding program and will take the full season to fully develop adding that that is the way it should be, if it's perfect at your first outing then it isnīt challenging enough.

I also wouldn't pay any attention to the usual suspects saying it isn't classy or that it's porn. Art should provoke strong reactions, push the boundaries, exceed expectations.

I've personally decided I think this is a risk worth taking for V&M and respect them for going there. If you feel the same way I think this is one season you will need to sit back and enjoy the ride, avoid prudish overreactions and just enjoy what they are trying to do. Don't panic about the results, just enjoy what they are doing and let the chips fall where they may.

This!!!!

They do, but Nicky Slater needs to catch up with the rules for the SD. He said that T&S tried to do a "waltz rendition of a polka", that's why they were penalized technically.:shuffle:

But since he later said that they deserve an Oscar for Carmen, he's forgiven.

Do you mean they didnt want programs will look easy from the begining of the season? I agree.
I think bigest Delobel-Shonfelder problem was they show full potential of there programs only at WChs and didnt show good skating at GP, thats why at WCH judges didnt wait nothing good from them :D

I love that they (IMO) dance every single beat of the music. I know that they had a couple of "oops", but given the complexity of their choreo, and the very short time they have had this programme, I think they are amazing. I loved their costumes, I wouldn't change a thing. Yes they need time to smooth out some lifts etc, but that will come over the season. As for Igor, who cares? Anna and Luca loved Tess and Scott's Carmen and both couples appear comfortable that their music is the same. T/S love D/W, and appear to have no problems with each other and support each other, so why should the fans (or media people) make a big deal about putting other teams down. I personally don't get it. There really is enough room in the sport for everyone to have certain teams which they love more. Let's live and let live, and simply appreciate the effort and energy and love which goes into these programmes. T/S "Carmen" is IMHO, iconic, and I will now go watch it for the 500th time. :lol: Way to go Tess and Scott!!
