    Don't Orford/Williams use it too? They came to my mind immediately when I saw this dance.

    TAT has already ruined two programmes this season... I'd rather see a complete Morricone free dance than this atrocity with Marton and Tosca thrown at random... not to mention R/T's Pink Floyd that remained just a plan... :mad:

    R/T' Pink Floyd was choreographed and apparently they said that they might use it as an exhibition piece... I hope it is true, I would really like to see them doing something different.

    I also wish they dump the first have of their SD to "My fair lady" and re-do the entire dance in the character of "With a little bit of luck". It looked good to me and they seem to have an ability to pull off such a comic character-driven dance.

    Because they only bought one new CD & they're passing it around?

    Last year's horrible piece of music was Blah Blah Cha Cha that about 6 teams used

    The King is on the ice.

    He's showed up in a new and interesting costume.

    According to reports on Twitter:

    I presume the first bit means he did 4S, but I'm a bit confused by the seven triple Axels. Did he leave out every other jump and just do 3As in their place? :confused:

    I'm almost hoping they meant 7 triple jumps, because if Plushenko landed 7 triple axels in one routine... :eek:

    If he landed 7 triple Axels in one routine everyone can just fall at his feet now and bow before him, because that would mean they've found a way to bulletproof his body :lol:

    I think 7 triples is a more likely thing.

    Loved that :smokin: Great unison and they look in good shape. But ugh, the new lift rules make even Tatiana's look ugly!

    That was smoking hot. I feel the need for a cigarette.

    I've already sworn not to comment about the lifts this season. I will cry when I see Vera forced to do them.

    It must be translation fail. Here it says: 4Sal with small mistake on the landing, seven triples, axel perfect.

    I wonder how far they will go with a quad salchow. UR because it is early in the season or he really has only ever done a toe really well? Keep and improve or abandon? If he thinks he can't do two quads but one higher scoring one he will try and imrpove it.

    Who cares about choreography when Maxim Trankov is sliding his hands down her body?

    Plushy Long program

    I thought he was skating to Romeo and Juliet?? It's very bare most of the program, the last 30 seconds are fun.

    Walked through 2 jumps and a spin, but I like the layout. Obviously still very new, very bare and the edit needs getting used to, but he seems to be covering the ice better. Very strong jumps and I love the circular steps during "the Swan". He can be so lyrical and fluid when he doesn't over work it, which unfortunately he did right after during the straight line steps to "Danse Macabre".

    I like Gachinski and his program. Too bad it probably won't survive in its current form till the big competitions. Gachinskiy from test skates is my favorite Gachiskiy :)

    I was :lol: during that last step sequence. Sigh too bad we'll only get to see the full program at Russian nats and Europeans. I suspect it will be very different by then.
