    Can we imagine what will happen if she land all her jumps in one program? With a 17th place in TES she still got 1st in PCS, this really get me thinking that all skaters should focus more on spins, spirals, speed, and even take drama lesson, and get a pretty "look", that will land them in some decent placements

    There's a third possibility: you can be good in both.

    Thanks for posting the video, Feraina. That was actually a pretty good program overall. Just by looking at the protocols I thought it must have been a disaster. Alissa is a classy skater -- I can see why she gets such high program component scores even as she loses points for technical errors on jumps.

    Thanks Ferina! It indeed is a pretty decent LP. Sometimes I hope the UR punishment is too harsh, you get UR, and negative GOE, double punishment

    i agree that alissa didn't skate with fire-it almost looks to me like she was dragging and willing herself to skate.
    most of the time (to me ) that is how alissa skates--her spins are good fast and she does more than the requirement--to me how good a person spins (is also how long they can hold that position and be center /like alissa--because of the cop the do what 1 1/2 or 2 revolutions and than change to the next postion till they get level 3-4 without going over the revolutions and so you can see how the spin is centered with that position etc. alissa does a great job on her spins-but her nemesis has been her jumps. early in season -unless she can speed up her program/get height in her jumps -i don't see her or most of the us girls doing much.

    Re Alissa- She really needed passion in the SP. The step sequence felt like it just dragged. Hopefully as the season progresses, she'll put more passion into it. I think this program has potential. I can't get into her LP. Dr. Zhivago doesn't do it for me.

    Re Davis/White- hearted, hearted, hearted that LP. The lifts were amazing and I loved the speed and flow. My only criticism is that Charlie's costume is utterly unmemorable.

    Isn't an unmemorable costume half the point? This is skating, not a fashion show unlike some russian and french skaters would have us believe.

    Then why is she wearing a sexy red dress and not a black skirt with a simple beige T-shirt? Her outfit looks very much like fashion, like theatre.

    This is pure sexism, stupidity and narrow-mindedness. North-American men are all manly and don't wear sparkles - but the little girls still wear pretty / sexy / elaborate dresses with sparkles etc.

    They want to make a statement - fine, do it like Virtue / Moir who both wore the simplest costumes to their freedance last year.
