    My favorite to watch is usually ice dancing, because I'm doing it myself. But I love some men, ladies and pairs and can watch every discipline with the same pleasure !

    Since the list did not specify Ladies, I voted for Pairs instead of Freestyle. But I love Ladies by far among the 4 Olympic disciplines and care the least for Mens (though I watch them too, for sure).

    I hope those of you who have run this off the rails are more tolerant of those with cognitive disabilities in your real worlds.

    I love ice dance and mens. And it's weird, because when I was first watching skating, I was all about ladies and pairs. But I got to know what ice dance is all about, and now I love it for its speed, flow, and precision of edge work. And I really like the combo of artistry and athleticism that is men's.

    Overall I chose icedance (no big surprise).

    I love the creativity and being able to watch teams with excellent pure skating skills (not saying that there are no freestylers or pairs who have excellent skating skills). Also icedance is the only of the four disciplines that I end up loving programs from lower ranked teams just as much if not more than some of the top teams. Even if some teams may be lacking in difficulty, their programs can still be fantastic, artistic, voidy etc.

    In the other disciplines lower ranked couples usually are there for reasons such as more mistakes, less developed skating skills which takes away from the performance level.

    My preferences are a three-way tie between Men, Ice Dance, and Synchro.

    :rofl: at this thread. ks777 and Ozziesk8tr's posts are the reason I read the above as a "three-way between men, ice dance and synchro"...:slinkaway

    Okay, works for me as long as it's Ponsero, Scott Moir (in about 10 years time) and the three of us can go for it in unison. Does that cover all bases? ;) Also Kwanfan's mind was totally there when she was writing her post.

    Ice dance for me which is :rofl: since ten years ago I couldn't even figure out how it could possibly be judged. (Fairly, that is.) I now think that preferring ice dance to other...uh, disciplines...is the mark of a truly evolved skating fan. :drama:

    Not that the judging makes any sense to me now, either. :p

    Ice dance without a doubt. I do not come back to any programs as often as to dances, which leads me to situation that some seasons after a given competition I know all dances from it by heart and can barely name top 5 in other categories... :shuffle: I guess I watch singles and pairs for the heat of the moment, love watching it live, seing who succeeds, who fails, who lands, who falls. But at the end of day, it's ice dance I watch for its programs, while the rest of it, I watch mostly for the competition.
