    mazzy, thanks a lot for the tip!!

    Really love the short - such a suspense they can create!
    Still hate Aljona's leg position in the death spiral though.
    But the way they go from dreamy to fierce is just unmatched IMO.

    Obviously the elements were toned down (only throw 2axel for instance) but what I found interesting is that there were lots of little lifts in the programme. Must be tiring.

    I was wondering the same thing. But is it worth the risk? Their throw triple flip is amazing and got a lot of +3 last season. I would love to see it though.

    I don't think so. They usually do a 2A throw in exhibitions.

That tune has the most mawkish lyrics ever, and I was praying that they not use it, but my prayers are not answered.

    I wondered, but I thought I missed a mention of their FD earlier in the thread! I've done this before!

    I love how effortlessly S/S skate. And I love how they are constantly trying to do new things and make new challenges. Their costumes sometimes leave much to be desired but they really have the best programs. All I have to say is while I love V/T, Nikolai that's how you do edgy/modern.

    Beautiful skating from S/S!! I won't comment on the costume.

    I usually hate the pairs step sequences in the SP, but I love how theirs actually relates to the music!

    Thanks. I was waiting very much for their new programs. Although mazzy is right about the costumes (most likely they will change, though), the programs look much better and more promising than those by Volosozhar/Trankov. If they keep up the level of the last season, they will probably become world champions for the fourth time (of course, we can never count Pang/Tong and even Volosozhar/Trankov out).

    Finally got to watch S/S's SP! Not that it'll surprise anyone, but I loved it They are such innovators. I love how they use the music; the program really builds. The only true artists in pairs these days. I love V/T but they have a long way to go before they can match S/S's artistry. Total legends, IMO.

    Difficult, very short entry into the 3toes.

    Very interesting dance lift dismount straight into pair spin.

    Interesting step sequence (although it goes a bit too long).

    The rest is very decent but nothing outstanding.

    They skate to the music very well though (I also love how the program builds up) and both their basic skating and the program is infinitely better than V/T's "Bring Me to Life" nightmare (although the judges will probably disagree :/).

    They deserve 10s all round for skating to the "Pina" soundtrack.

    The contemporary dance inspired choreography seems very sophisticated, especially in the context of the usual FS shit.

    I haven't been this excited about a program ever.

    I have huge hopes and I hope that with more mileage the programs will look amazing.

    I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!

    I know I'm such an uber, but the FP looks amazing So smooth and modern! It could be my favorite LP from them, though I say that every year.

    Many thanks for the links!

    The SP program has barely started, and boom!, there's the throw out of nowhere. I loved the lift: fast entry, nice transition into the position change and direction change and, especially the dismount.

    As a modern dancer I have to say I absolutely love the LP modern choreo This could become one of my favorite lp ever.

    The step sequence in the short is great and relates to the music perfectly,
    also love the lift and the dismount. I don't mind the costumes, but I think
    the costumes for the lp will change.

    They skated this extremely well - as they always do - but I don't see much innovation in the choreography. I know they usually do the double axle in exhibition so I don't know if they will do it in the program. I doubt it since it won't get them many points and their triple flip is huge. I would rather see it at SA since I'm not a fan of seeing programs for the first time under spotlights. I do love their costumes.

    I love the fact that they are skating to the music and got the choreography inspiration from the movie and soundtrack from Pina. (I can't wait to see the movie!) I als can't wait to see the final version. The start of the Grand Prix can't come soon enough.
