    Indeed!

    In all seriousness, doing a step sequence in a competitive program while pretending to be just about to fall over is one difficult thing to pull off!

    Well, it's Morozov's choreo after all...

    Javi, you're too fabulous for Morozov, get another choreographer!

    I'm watching on television, which is why I am getting Weiss and Gannon

    as for technical issues - email universal sports as they're the ones that can help with that.

    YES!!!

    Could we possibly form a posse to kidnap him and then...

    Wait a minute. That wouldn't work because then no one would want to let him go.

    *Loved* the music and the idea of the program, but Javi really is just too good for what Morozov's giving him.

    Going on a limb here because there seems to be so much Morozov hate on this board, and I hate to be repetitive, but did you see that step sequence? Absolutely genius.

    And no, it wasn't just "posing". It was taking a theme in the music (i.e. Jack Sparrow's constant inebriation) and turning into a real choreographic element, incorporating very technically demanding upper-body movement throughout, giving the impression that he could fall over any moment, all the while making it seem like it's just silly choreography to the untrained eye.

    I haven't been a fan of Morozov's recent choreography (e.g. Miki's choreo for the Olympic season), but this one was a very clear example of why he's become such an acclaimed choreographer.

    It seems like Alban is just going from one end of the rink to the other and just jump, jump, jump. I'm not buying this interpretation from him and I don't believe I've seen a single transition in this program.

    Yeah, I'd say Morozov is very hit and miss when it comes to his choreography, but when he hits, he really hits. His techno hip-hop Swan Lake SP he choreographed for Daisuke is still one of my favourite men's SPs ever, and it was pretty much universally loved.
