    Or at whom?

    Robin, for giving her such God-awful choreography?

    Her make-up artist which is why she keeps putting her hands up over her face?

    Michelle Kwan, for returning after the 02 Oly?

    Herself for returning after the 02 OLY? Is that why early in the season there were butt-slaps? (by worlds turned into gentle butt massages)

    I wish I could find the Skate Canada version, which was even more dramatic, but Laetitia Hubert's seizure at the end of her "Hooker on Crack" program is my absolute favorite of all time.

    I just die every time I watch it! (There are some funny falls in this program, too.)

    That was a weird season in general. Also featured Schwarz and Mueller, who had a domestic violence theme program with an abuse scene at the end.

    Worst not-funny example was Tatiana Malinina's Aladdin program. That she then recycled and set to Malaguena. I remember watching with a non-skating friend, who asked "why is she doing Egyptian arm movements to Spanish music?" And the judges gave both of those programs 5.8s and 5.9s.... Girl was nothing but a big triple lutz if you ask me.

    Was it choreographed?

    Definitely not choreographed, but the violin glissando fits so well...

    ^^ Very funny description. I hope Carolina continues skating. Watching these clips really highlights how much she has improved.

    I have always wondered whether this ending was planned, or accidental.

    Sasha Cohen - Romeo & Juliet Marshalls 2005 Has she ever said?

    I recall lengthy discussions of this. What was our verdict? :lol:

    Love the thread but was worried that it took so long to bring up Leonova's 2011-12 SP footwork. Really. That's the winner right there.

    Oh God, YES! The Skate Canada version was the ultimate version of "Hooker on Crack" for me! Complete with that hilarious trip against the boards and the crotch shot at the end of the program...PURE AWESOME.

    I also love this one...the most choreographically effective use of a sit spin to end a program, courtesy of Valentina Marchei:

    LMAO, of course not!! You can see in her face she's thinking "OMG they bought it!!" and then Michelle thinking "You don't fool me, bitch":lol::lol:

    The generalized spazzing out that Liz Punsalan attempted to pass off as dancing from about 3:59 to 4:10 of their 95 FD always makes me :rofl:

    as for "well choreographed falls":
    Martiusheva & Rogonov sbs fall
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4sxL3pS7mg&feature=player_detailpage#t=82s
    This was the first time I saw this pair and I immediately fell for them. the program itself was beautiful and I find that fall somehow cute.


    and my favorite one, Valentina Marchei - the best ending ever. this one definitely deserves a + GOE!

    One decade later and I'm more convinced than ever that Anissina/Peizerat were robbed in 2001.

    Yes, but his squat had "walk like an Egyptian arms" so it doesn't count ;)

    For me is this one:

    I don't mind the choreograhy but the "Gone missing in the jungle" interpretation(aside from the intriguing costumes) wasn't the brightest idea IMHO.
