    Rachael's. The girl is so talented, but she is slow and it makes her boring to watch. Gachinski is just .

    Good topic!! I pick flatt cuz I don't like the choreography, it's too cheesy, nobody would do well with it.

    Kozuka's look is boring and I don't like his SP much. Great skater, yes. But I need more facial expression...

    ETA: I hadn't watched his FS this season until I posted. Whoops. It's really good. He has improved a lot over last season.

    Gachinski and Flatt.
    Artur has all the components to develop into a star- but bad choreography and charm- less OTT presentation stand on his way of gaining multitudes of fans.
    Rachael- really improved this year; but that faux- 40ies image gotta go and she needs to explore different styles. Once again, choreography and "presentation training" seem to be the key.
    I'll never understand how Kozuka can be considered boring A bit self- contained, yes ( and I like it) Boring- nooooo!

    I don't think Imai needs an intervention. She just needs some maturing and refining.

    But shit programs. Which is precisely the problem.

    I'm a bit about Flatt coming out first. Her programs this season are way better than anything she's done in the past and she's clearly making loads of effort.

    ITA. Flatt's playing to her strengths (character driven programs), skating her programs full out and getting her elements done. I'd think she the lady who least needs an intervention, she's doing the most with what she's got.

    I voted for Mroz, he seems like an especially natural jumper, but his program just make me zzz.

    Imai too: Her LP reminds of one of those obstacle course game shows, where shes waving her arms in every direction and trying to keep up with the frenetic music.

    He should have kept the programs from last year

    I voted Miki and Nobu, by the way.
    Bring back Super Mario Brothers!

    Flatt is at least trying, and frankly, she's improved.

    Brandon Mroz on the other hand...his programs are coma-inducing. No style at all and his *dramatic* LP music just makes him look even slower. Plus, I can't stand all those silly little arm movements he makes.
