    He looks like one the "firemen" from the 60's flick. "Fahrenhite 451."

    I also like his new LP , much better than I did both of his LPs from last season, and Yagudin's ex music has roused all the nostalgic feelings in me. I can't wait for the Olympics to begin!

    His spins looked so much better. I guess some time spent with Lucinda Ruh has paid well. ow he only needs to land his jumps. Imagine how exciting the program will look like if he does!

    I kind of hope he can use a new SP for the olympic season. I liked it a lot. It has always been a crowd-pleaser, and Joubert sold it well. But somewhat I just don't feel very excited about seeing it again for another entire season. The same goes with other skaters too. I mean, come on, it's the olympic season! People want to see something new! I do understand that skaters stick to their old programs for various different reasons, but still

    ETA: I want to thank whoever opens this new thread; I'm very happy to take an early glance at Brian's new program. And may I say the title is indeed an eye-catcher!

    oh, snap!

    though I don't find Brian all that overly attractive, I still loved this comment!

    I felt the same. Last season, I liked his SP. When he announced that he was going to keep it, I was happy. But this time, when I saw it, I had a different feeling. I am a little tired of his old SP.

    For his new LP, I want to add, I like his straight line footwork section very much. But somehow, I don't like him using Yagudin's "Overcome" music. It distracts me. I couldn't thoroughly enjoy his skating - I was thinking about Yagudin's movement.

    I like his FS too, I saw it a couple of days ago, a bit rough, but tons of potentials there as the season advances. BTW I didn't know Brian's Bday was in september, how great!! happy pre-birthday Brian!

    Brian Joubert and the NHK documentary, this time in English (very short article).

    Add me to the group who wanted a new SP. I was never a huge fan of Rise, even back when it was an exhibition (at least the costume was better then!). On the other hand, I do like Brian, and if this is what works for him in preparing for the Olympics, I guess I'll have to go with it . I've read that they've tinkered with the ending a bit, I guess I'll see if that's the case at TEB...

    I meant that he is one of the best for podium. Although If Takahashi, Lambiel and Plusenko skate also clean, I am not sure Joubert needs only to skate clean to win them

    I believe it was Tarasova who once said 'The more mistakes one makes in his program, the more dependent one become on the flaws of his rivals".

    Who skates clean is a 6.0 thing. A clean skate is not necessary in order to do well; doing as as much of the planned content as possible is, even if there are some mistakes - so long as those mistakes are not URs.

    Think of the Zhangs in Torino, or Carolina Kostner's silver in 2008, or Savchenko/Szolkowy win at 2008 Worlds - they skated a bad LP, and were still first despite a really good and almost totally clean performance from D/D. Not to mention that the chances of more than 1-2 people of the top tier skaters going clean are slim.

    I agree with B.

    The good thing is that this time, Joubert's LP seems not only having jumps. It has emotion and intensity. I expect this program to bring out more of his artistic talent.

    Didn't someone suggest Joubert will stay in eligible skating post-Vancouver in order to (among other things) have an opportunity to skate at Worlds in France? Well - apparently the FFSG is applying to host 2012 Worlds (Brian will be 27 then). Though I must say it would be a bit surprising for a European city to host Worlds that year, given that 2010 is in Torino.
