Proustable, Cherub, and BKF (yay nice to see you posting again) how are you guys holding up? I almost cracked a few times, but I fought through lol. But I did watch the SD vid, and I really enjoyed what I saw! Can't wait to see the rest in competition tomorrow...wishing them the best of luck!!
Wow those of you holding out to see the FD, RESPECT!
I wonder what Igor was expecting from V/M when he consciously (if) gave C/L Carmen, but I doubt he was expecting THIS. Now I think it's brilliant that V/M picked Carmen. This will not just be another FD for V/M but one that will be used to compare with past figure skating greats. It shows that they are not content to just be the best of the modern Ice Dancing scene but they want to take on all of the past legends and I'm hopeful this FD could come out on top!
Wow these are some BANGIN' posts! You guys are hilarious.
BKF you have a remarkable memory! I can't remember much of any of our collaborations except that they've been entirely pleasurable. So glad you're back btdubs.
I have WITHHELD! You few out there, I'm in your boat! No probs *brush my shoulder. The suspense, what suspense?!
YEGADS I CAN'T WAIT FOR TIME OFF / THE WEEKEND! Gratuitous marathon of figure skating viewing here I come.
Oh, goodness, the excitement! Just from the pics and the CTV clips, I love the FD already! I was going to stay away from this thread for a couple of days, but it is just too much fun reading everyone's reactions to the new programs, and I didn't want to get behind again.
and thanks, too, Shayii and jl22aries! I was waiting for updates on how you were doing. Hang in there--not much longer to wait. We can do this
These two programs are nothing like V/M has ever done before. I mean, they are really two distinctive programs and you can certainly tell it just watching their movements. I think by the end of this season, Carmen would def be their signature piece along with PF, Mahler, and FF.
Their FD is HOT and amazing! Being such high level and brilliant skaters, V&M can convert any program into something nice. V&M

I think if interviewed on them Krylova will comment. She knows they are in a class by themselves.
Still loving the FD the morning after
Me too - any excuse to see the videos again.
By all means, Cudos to those steadfast fans who remain Carmen "virgins". I've already watched numerous times, and would suggest you view the practise vid after you watch the actual program (I like the practise stark practise outfits). I, too, can't wait to hear the comments of the various announcers .

I also work Saturday, so I'll be missing the FD live. I really do need to think things through before making promises.
On a serious note, I hope Jennifer Swan knows how fans are reacting to this, because I am very grateful. As someone pointed out at the old thread (Golightly I think), her input must be substantial for Tessa and Scott to mention her a lot in relation to this FD. I really was preparing for the worst. Instead of suffering though, it's like I've been given an early Christmas gift.
Anyway, happy and giddy as I am though with what I've seen so far of their programs, they still have to compete it. So good luck to Tessa and Scott! (My apologies for seriously underestimating both of you, what kind of uber am I? ) Hope you have two fantabulous skates. Wishing you both a healthy and successful season!

I'm glad that I'm at least in the same time zone as this event, so I'll be able to watch live if there's a stream. If no stream I will be religiously refreshing youtube til it comes up!
Ohhh, Proustable, that's a tough one!
Is this truth there is scandal around T-S Carmen? U read on russian forum and cant undrstand nothing.
Oh Gosh, now what???
Other than the already discussed suspicion Igor gave Carmen to C/L to sabotage V/M, I have not heard anything about a scandal.
