Tripping on the Podium
ITA w/all of this. It's such a shame, as they're so much better than what they've been given the last two years, but it's like they got S&D and were on the right track there and after that...To me it's been nothing but a regression of sorts in the FD. They don't do lovey dovey well, but powerful and passionate like S&D is what they need. Would have though Marina and Igor would have figured that out by now.

And I'm tired of this misconception that D/W can't do soft programs. My favorite part in almost all of their FDs has been the soft part - the beautiful, slow, balletic parts of Polovetsian, the dreamy, fluid middle part of Eleanor Rigby, the light first half of Samson & Delilah, the middle part of POTO, and let's not forget their Beyond the Sea exhibition. Their power shines through naturally, it doesn't need to be emphasized.
How about people wait until they've got their program down before declaring they're doomed?
Yep agree. I personally think this program has potential. Also, what's the point of competing if you don't do something that is challenging and moves you up a new level. What's the point of victory if you get there the same way? It gets old after a while...
