So true, every point.

Really? I found Kulik amazing. His 3A alone was enough to excite me.

Silverlake, I completely agree. I know that we all tend to look with starry eyes to past skates, but on the night of the ladies' long program, I felt I was watching history. They all lived up to the peak of their capabilities. And the top two went beyond expectations. What a splendid night. I'm sure people will be talking about it many years from now.
Men's: Yagudin's Winter SP in 2002
Ladies: Elizabeth Manley's fantastic, perfect and unexpected LP in 1988. I've never seen someone look more surprised to have skated so well
Pairs: M&D Rach LP in 1994. I still think they were robbed.
Dance: A&P's Romeo&Juliet FD from 1998. It's the program that moved dance from my least favourite to most favourite discipline. Honourable mention goes to V&M and both of their programs this year.
she takes the audience on her journey of emotions
Not to mention that Kim Yuna's performances will surely rank among greatest OG medal winning performances ever.

So I haven't grown as attached as to say, Sasha Cohen in 2006.
Off the top of my head, I think I'll watch Kim Yuna again and again and Mirai. Also Joannie's SP. I'll watch Evan, too. I always have fun watching the winners even if they are not my favorite because it's just fun to watch them win and their reaction and everything.
When I think of Mao, I'd much rather watch her performances from previous years, sadly enough. Hopefully, next year will bring programs from her that I'll feel like watching again in 10 years...

I saw Elizabeth's 1988 LP on youtube and really enjoyed it.

SP - Joannie Rochette 2010 (I wouldn't wish the circumstances she skated under on my worst enemy, skating 2 days after your mother's death on the world's biggest sports stage in your home country, and yet she managed to skate the most successful SP of her career under ALL THAT PRESSURE - just INCREDIBLE!)
LP - Yu-Na Kim 2010
SP - Stephane Lambiel 2006
LP - Alexei Yagudin 2002
SP - Berezhnaya/Sikharulidze 2002
LP - Berezhnaya/Sikharulidze 2002 (I still think they should have been sole owners of Olympic Gold!)
OD - Davis/White 2010
FD - Anissina/Peizerat 1998
