Hey y’all.

I haven’t really paid attention to skating in the last few years. I tuned into the Olympics but nothing else since 2016 Worlds. What are some of the must-see programs from any of the disciplines I should check out?

Pairs
Peng/Jin 2019 Worlds SP ("Ophelia")
Boikova/Kozlovskii 2019 Worlds FS (The Nutcracker)
Sui/Han 2019 Worlds FS ("Rain, In Your Black Eyes") (the essential pairs program of recent years)
Peng/Jin 2019 SkAm SP ("Alegria")
Peng/Jin 2020 4CC FS (Cloud Atlas) (for both of P/J's programs in the 19/20 season, if you have access to the ISU feed for 2020 4CC, watch those versions instead)

Ice dance
Shibutani/Shibutani 2016/17 GPF SD ("That's Life")
Virtue/Moir 2017 Worlds SD ("Kiss"/"5 Women"/"Purple Rain") (real shame they couldn't do this at the Olympics)
Fear/Gibson 2018 NHK FD ("Bad Girls"/"September"/"On the Radio")
Guignard/Fabbri 2018/19 GPF FD (La La Land)
Gilles/Poirier 2019 4CC FD ("Vincent") (better performance than the Worlds version linked above)
Chock/Bates 2019 4CC FD ("Fever"/"Burning Love")
Fear/Gibson 2019 SCI FD ("Vogue")
Fournier Beaudry/Sorensen 2019 CoC RD (Bonnie & Clyde) (this is the ISU feed, not sure if you have access to it)

Nathan Chen, Caravan https://youtu.be/C6HJDbwzuNU and Rocket Man https://youtu.be/0zwBOLybv_s
Boikova/Kozlovski - everything, they are the new IT team, very special!
James/Ciprès, Wicked Game - 2018-19 was a golden year for them. https://youtu.be/TZnWFHvsAr4
Chock/Bates snake charmer dance https://youtu.be/xeA1CqN_m8A
Agree about Kaori Sakamoto's Matrix, Fear/Gibson Vogue and Gilles/Poitier Vincent.
You can't talk about this period without talking about Tutberidze and her 3A's. I'll nominate Alena Kostornaia - pretty much anything, she is the reigning Queen of skating before ********* struck.

Thanks everyone. I'm looking forward to a glass (or two) of wine this Friday and watching all these!

A lot of what came to my mind first have already been mentioned, so here's the rest of what my insomnia-addled brain came up with. I nearly went full-Russian but a few others snuck in there!


Tarasova/Morozov 2019 Russian Test Skates SP. gaaaah, the untapped potential makes me insane.


Calalang/Johnson 2019 Warsaw Cup LP. Their LP at US Nationals was electric, but NBC deleted everything that was on YouTube, so this is just sort of a taste of what they're capable of.


Dmitri Aliev 2018 Europeans LP. ma boy!!


Ksenia Sinitsyna 2020 Russian Nationals LP


Satoko Miyahara 2017 GPF LP


Nguyen/Kolesnik 2019 Lake Placid JGP FD


Khudaiberdieva/Nazarov 2019 Junior Worlds FD. She's already two partners past, but you need to introduce yourself to the KHUDA!! She is the most natural born ice dance diva this side of Pasha.

Savchenko/Massot's Lighthouse FS at 2017 Worlds:

Carolina Kostner's short programs in 2017 and 2018, but I'm not sure which performances were best.

Kevin Aymoz at the GPF this past season:
