Kanako is a natural - most of the others have to force it out to an extent.
Thanks to dizzy for the links. Have to watch more now.....
WHOA. Now that was one impressive 3F from Caroline Zhang (compared to all her previous efforts) - I was really stunned that she actually managed to correct her mule-kick.
I think this is a great start to the season for her, hope she gets even better!
BTW, is Caroline's pearl spin pernamently MIA at this point?

Carolina K's short:
LOVED everything about it!!!
I also liked kanako!! the best after carolina IMO! kiira was also gorgeous!!!
I didn't like mao..sadly...it's not the problems with her jumps, it's the program that doesn't work for me! I can't see a real tango in it! I hope she will do better tomorrow!
Bravo Carolina , I loved her tango and dress!
Cant get over how much Caroline Z. changed , I did not recognise her!! Nice program though still slow.
Ashley I dont like much the program and this Ouatia music again, this facial expressions ...and she is boring little...(Sorry Trewn)But a great dress !
Mao but it is early season and anyway the footwork is awesome! Why she had a deduction?
Kira's program is beautiful and her dress gorgeous and simple at the same time !
Kanako was the best for me, great jumps, speed skating, a large smile, personality, count me a fan since Hague last year! She reminds you why you like skating!
At last a great feed, boss gone and normal hours, too bad i ll miss the men!
Just watched Kiira - for a second I thought it was like watching Evan's sister
Sorry, but too much repetitive arm flapping - the same gesture over and over - and I don't love that choreo as much as so many others do.
Caro was good and well presented. Nice dress, good choreo and a good start for her.
Rachael seemed the same to me - no better or worse from last season but I liked her dress and new haircut.
Early in the season and they will all get better.
But it doesn't mean it is everybody's favorite and I respect if you like something different.
I do like watching a skater who is having fun out there and doesn't appear nervous and appear to be only skating for points.
I just saw Mao's program - aside from the mistakes I enjoyed it and Mao is such an artist on the ice. Her posture, positions and line are wonderful.
Loved Kanako, Mao & CaroK (I really didn't think she'd skate as well she did...!). I really thought Kanako went out and sold her program.
American ladies didn't make positive impression on me this time. Hopefully they'll improve. I didn't care for Ashley's SP (it's not working for me at all; maybe eventually it'll grow on me...?), and Rachael's left me cold. There's some potential for CZ, but it's not quite there yet.
Felt horrible for Elene...*shaking head*
