    I don't get it.

    Certainly it doesn't look they have many hours on this program, and the twizzles are a hot mess. The lifts are not smooth, nor are they particularly interesting.

    I wonder whether it's a quickly thrown together exhibition so that they had something they could show at the test skate without revealing their real program.

    At least I hope so. They can do so much better than this.
    I wish you were right but I'm afraid to say I think this is probably their real FD. At first, I actually thought they were skating an exhibition because I heard song lyrics. But then I saw them do an actual program. Either way, the music is not an excuse. I am not satisfied with their skating- even the new lifts are not good AND WILL HE EVER LEARN HOW TO DO TWIZZLES? She usually does them. He can't.

    I don't like the program and if they keep it up this way, they won't progress this year. I don't think I/K will win nationals.

    I am beginning to prefer Riazanova and Tkachenko.

    I liked I&K's choreo better with Zhulin--but then I almost always prefer Zhulin's choreo to Morosov's.

    Apparently Lena said at her formspring that they skated their new exhibition number and not the FD.

    Then, at least that's good.
    However, I don't understand why they did that. If they wanted to just skate their exhibition, why include all those twizzles, lifts, and most of their choreography in there? They could just skate a real exhibition or do their program to the real music. What's up with that?
