    Thanks for the new thread Ioana! Looks like I'm joining your group Proustable and Cherub. I wasn't planning on it, but since I missed it, I'm not gonna watch the youtube video, I'll wait till Saturday. Kharis Ralph said on twitter that Tessa and Scott's program is brilliant--even other dancers are complimenting them!! I'm so excited!

    V-M FD is... You know, i think they show sex on ice :D
    This FD is so difficult. I love all lifts. I like how easy Tessa get in her postiton and for n=me they did lifts easy, then they did last season.
    Step sequenses look amazing, There sakting skills - look like they didnt touch ice at all.
    Cant wait to see SD.
    Tessa said Marina want then Carmen 4 or 5 years. So i think its good they made this FD now, when they are older.

    We can all watch and re-watch on behalf of you abstainers. ( Oh, you're going to be thrilled ! )

    Should be their SD practice coming right up.

    With all the grabbing going on in this program, it's just a shame they aren't skating at TEB this year. :p

    So i lack the will power for those who are waiting until Saturday. I was not happy about the Carmen choice at all....but what i just saw is WOW. Tessa surprised me, i think she can really pull this off and well Scott looks brilliant. I look at Scott as one of the best if not best male dancers ever, manly but elegant. CANT wait to see this on Saturday and those lifts are challenging but especially at the end like that. Now i want to see their SD! I really enjoyed D/W SD, interested to see how v/m SD compare, because from what i have seen of v/m FD i like better than D/W FD... so far anyway.

    I'm not at all surprised about Tessa's interpretation of Carmen. She is Tessa Virtue after all.

    Oh my. Sweet mother and child. A word of warning to my fellow fans from this side of the world (Asia). If you're coming off work from the graveyard shift, tired, barely able to keep your eyes open and your body screaming for sleep, DO NOT WATCH THE FD yet. Because sleep is the last thing you're gonna get. If you have enough energy for sex on the other hand, by all means go ahead. :) Some of the holds and positions, where did they get their inspiration Kama Sutra? Oh wait this is modern dance so 50 shades? Okay, I'll sleep now. Maybe later I'll be able to say something more with real substance.

    Oh, thanks for the new thread Ioana, and for all those who gave their reassurances from the old thread helping some of us to keep our sanity. :) But really need to sleep, after one more replay... Gosh I bet they are having a field day in Tumbler now with all the GIFs. Later, later....

    Won't be able to watch the video until I'm home but from the reviews, I'm guessing the FD is "uplifting" for heart rates, rosiness of cheeks, certain body parts...

    Steaminess aside, this is a SOUND program. Carmen is destructive lust and pure madness. You cannot hint at things with Carmen, you must do them. It is complex as hell and the movements just show you that. I know it is tough not to focus on the characters, but let's talk about the step sequences? So glorious. If they polish it well enough, we could have a classic. For now, I am very impressed and hope that they have a good skate tomorrow and Saturday. I feel they have a very good vehicle in that FD.

    Norvasc, lisinopril, hydrochlorothiazide and other blood pressure meds might be needed. Viagra, Levitra and Cialis save it. Okay, really off to sleep. Really.

    OK, OK, let's not over-sexualize it? It's hot, but come on now.

    Finally a program which is choreographically worthy of V/M's talent and skills, I'd been waiting for it to come up ever since Umbrellas and Pink Floyd although I loved their Mahler and enjoyed their latin FD of two seasons ago. From what I've seen in their practice, I don't think they will need to tweak/rework any part of the program any later in the season, the choreo has plenty of transitions for Carmen to make the judges happy and did you notice any skating in place?

    Sorry, I forgot the smiley icon. I'll get over this in a few hours. Don't worry. I am sure I'll appreciate this much more deeper later. If you like a more substantial comment, I like that they are still dancing, was scared that they were going to go over dramatic. Sorry about the meds joke if it was too much. Line of work I guess, should have left that joke at work, not appropriate here I guess.

    I am not very happy with music cuts in first half of the program, but there is a good chance they will master with choreography.
    I am very happy with the direction they have taken.
    We are having the most interesting season and Olympics will be AMAZING!

    sahararainfall..I liked the meds joke..:lol: The sex jokes will be inevitable , anyway, so..bring 'em on... The thing is, the exquisite skating is there.. and the sexiness is really like a force of nature.. not Morozov-grungy.

    I'm really happy that they're using Don Jose's aria ( don't know the name / first line)..the one where he's falling hard. It's not often used ( I think :?)and it's lovely.

    Practice starting.

    Couldn't really see much of the SD the feed was so slow on my computer it was more like a slide show. The music sounded a lot perkier than I expected it to.

    Are you going to be there too? I wish they were going to be there, but I have Savchenko and Szolkowy as well as Tuk to fawn over.

    The SD was okay, but they didn't really do much of it, and I imagine it will be much better with costumes etc.

    Exactly. They found a polka that goes perfectly with the waltz, I was relieved to hear it. The ending is lovely and the step sequence looks good.

    I had that slide show problem as well, just reloaded the page and it seemed to fix it. As to the Short Dance, its hard to figure that Dance out. That polka mixed in with Anthony Hopkins composition... I really don't know how he would react to that. Other then that, we probably only saw maybe half the choreography to the Short Dance and they broke it up between each segment. Hard to say until we see the full Short Dance on Friday.

    The feed was so bad during the SD practice, I basically couldn't make out anything. Except the music, but I've already stated my love for that.

    They did so little of the SD, it's hard to tell much at all. I thought the twizzles looked really good though, and I really like their non-touching step sequence.

    Thanks. I think my problem right now is trying to adjust to the perkiness of that after the excitement of Carmen :D

    But their skating skills in the step sequences (SD and FD) are looking so sharp already.

    This is a beautifull SD. Anthony Hopkins will be thrilled that they are going to perform it so beautifullly.........Love that last lift :). Tessa creates such beautiful expression with just her arms nevermind all the rest. Scott is amazing as usual with his partnering skills.........

    They stopped after a few steps. They did the polka at the end of the practice session, and they also repeated the twizzles (very well done, especially the second time).

    Thanks. Video still buffering for me. I guess my internet connection is as tired as I am. Maybe I'll just wait for the real thing. :)
