    And what about Plushenko?

    S&V's SD started off so well and then...Witch Doctor! Ugh, I'd love this dance if they changed that music.

    Makarov's SP is nice enough. She looks like she's trying to imitate Korpi imo.

    It is supposed to be the year that Sinitsina and Zhiganshin move up to seniors, not move up to kindergarten. Kustarova needs to be banned from ever making programs. In what world does "Ting Tang Walla Walla Bing Bang" scream maturity?

    Finally, a senior SD that I like. Too bad their FD is so bad.
    I have to disagree with you on this. I found this kind of boring. Actually I've hated most of the SD's as well this season. I really like most of Bobrova and Soloviev's and think that that one has the most potential.

    apparently she doesn't understand they are skating for Seniors now
    ( Kustarova/Aleexa's records: are good in juniors but sucks when her students transition into Seniors )

    the sooner they leave the better, such a shame if they will be ruined because
    the basics are there in their expressiveness and they also have good levels .
    I will say they are more talented than Bobrova/Soloviev

    Is this what Sui and Han would skate to if they were ice dancers?

    I actually liked it. It's certainly different

    I think that junior levels may be judged less harshly than senior levels. Bobrova and Soloviev got the same tech levels as Sinitsina and Zhiganshin when they won their junior worlds.

    PML, The "Witch Doctor" strikes again.

    fwiw, I like the aggressive use of the polka on those programs, and for this one (IMO), the combo with "Tenneseee Waltz" is a bit more of a coherent match.

    we'll see this coming GP how this will be judged but If I can compare just by speed, twizzle and step sequence I will say Bobrova/Soloviev are slower than Sinitsina/Zhiganshin

    Im sick of WITCH DOCTOR

    yes, vocals should be allowed in singles and pairs, but first in the 14/15 season, so don´t know what morozov has in his minds with those programs

    Skaters have used the vocals in the past at the test skates. Then at their competitions, no vocals.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    This is just my personal opinion- I don't like vocals in FS at all, except in the pros. I find them distracting from the skating.

    And I'm sorry, but this packaging is not working for her any more than her previous look. The FD dress makes her look stout and like she has no neck.
    Didn't you see other skater's programs - many of the ice dancers and also some single skaters were dressed in all black outfits which in some cases were apparently their training clothes. Do you really think that all of them are going to skate dressed like that in the real competitions ? Some people seem to not understand that skaters very rarely wear their competition costumes in test skates. In most cases their costumes just aren't ready yet.
