    For sure, Carolina Kostner's Afternoon of a faun is in my list !
    It was my favorite program of the season, and I still watch it, during the off-season. I love it.

    I think these are two great programs as well, and unfortunately, she didn't skate them to their potential!

    Probably my fave program ever is Torvill & Dean 'Encounter' from the 1994 World Team Championships always manages to bring a tear to my eye. It's stunning.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OWk5a0I1BA

    Also:
    Bourne &Kraatz- 'Meet Her At The Love Parade' ( My fave FD they've done but often overlooked after it followed up 'Riverdance' and Shae was injured much of the season. This was their first performance of it & IMO their best http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LywDzZa3Xqo

    Also pretty much anything by Stephane Lambiel, Jeff Buttle, Virtue & Moir and Drobiazko & Vanagas.

    I often prefer her exhibitions to her competitive programs.

    See that "Jupiter" piece? That's Mao. Masquerade? Bells? That's not Mao.

    I wish she would turn that exhibition into a short program. It's flawless.

    I also like her Liebestraume free. When skated it at 4CC, it was really pretty.

    I see that this hasn't been mentioned, but as someone new to skating, I really hope you'd watch this program. It's so different from what everyone has done and one of those rare gems that should not be forgotten:

    I saw this in person at the 2006 US nationals. Her SP was also very creative. Definitely rare gems.

    Thanks for your responses! I'm slowly making my way through them
    I'm going to twizzle into a triple axel and spiral out of it.

    Yeah, I liked that one too, although after Riverdance it seemed not quite as interesting.. I like all of B&K's programs except March With Me..

    Yes. And not only that, you know that she really didn't skate for the medals. Aware of the fact that they will never make it out of Nationals (or even to Nationals) or win world medals, they are still willing to dedicate their time to and training to mastering and perfecting their craft simply for the love of it - THAT really deserve the utmost respect!
