    The same with twizzles. I think in pair skating team are rewarding for good ice coverage during lifts.
    Maybe someone could pay attention to this, but look like all dont care. For example Carole Lane was one, who could start talking about this. But when you have coach, who couldnt talk about you better qualities in skating compare your rivals, why others must care?

    What Scott meant in his after GP interview was that they want to skate their best AND win. He was simply pointing out that they skated their best at this event and didn't win, therefore there is something they don't understand (in the scoring). Well join the club!

    VM's show is a documentary, not a reality show of staged activities. If anything it should have helped them to focus on something other than Sochi. Obviously the producers can edit the film to project a storyline but VM aren't being asked either to act or to fake emotions. I'm looking forward to it.

    It's ok, don't worry ;) Maybe you din't saw my "crazy project" lol :D


    About thread title: I like "17 Seasons for Sochi" but I admit that one quote that I most love is Scott's quote: "Together. Every step. Every moment. Every breath." :shuffle:

    I think we should wait on 17 seasons until the next thread. I like Ice Princess's suggestion.

    We must have different ideas as to what a documentary means.

    I know they're calling it a documentary but from the clips and the few photos released up to now it's looking very much like a show of staged activities.

    I would like to be wrong but things are looking too OTT and fabricated for my taste.

    You don't think Tessa lying on the ice and crying is acting or over-dramatizing her emotions? To me it screams fake.

    I think people should wait to watch the whole thing before they make assumptions like this^. The advertisments can be misleading.

    Looking at the other shows of that network and the production company could be an indicator. Is the W Channel serious when it comes to reality shows and documentaries or do they prefer the Khardashian/E Channel approach ? Tessa and Scott probably had some influence on the end product but a channel won't change their path just like that so looking at the other shows should actually be quite telling about what we can expect :)

    But you will never know until you see the whole show.

    They can call it a documentary all they like but based on the promos and clips we've seen it's obviously a reality series. And I remember in one interview Tessa said they hope they had enough interesting story lines that would entertain people and keep them watching. Anyways it doesn't matter, I'm not one of those people that's against reality shows--I enjoy quite a few of them.
    What if we don't finish the new thread before Sochi though?

    Wow. I'm only gone a few days and there are tons of posts to catch up on! Thanks everyone for the pictures, videos, and other links.

    I think we should go ahead and use 17 Seasons to Sochi now.

    What about a title that refers to their next competition goal - winning their 6th senior national championship in Ottawa?

    I
    t seems to take a month to go through a thread. With Nats in January I think we will finish next thread before Sochi. I like both suggestions.

    We will finish the thread before Sochi
    We like to talk
    We have the reality show to talk about also Nats.
    Otherwise we can just hurry it along so the week before Sochi we have the 17 seasons thread.

    That interview they did with their fans on the first page gave a lot of potential ideas for titles:

    Athleticism and Artistry
    Trust and Connection
    Dancing with Heart

    Or to quote Kaitlyn Weaver about V/M: "The quintessential ice dance team of our time"

    Ehh, even if it would be said in defense of Davis/White, what has that to do with criticizing Tessa and Scott? Like - defending Meryl and Charlie is automatically criticizing Tessa and Scott :confused:? Yes, I am asking this because I am one of those rare Tessa and Scott fans here who try to defend Meryl and Charlie from time to time.
