    Best and Worst Programs of 2011-2012

    Ashley's Black Swan is my favorite hands down. I'm so sad to see it go, she skated it with so much power and paid attention to every little detail.
    Alissa's La Vie en Rose was so charming! it fit her so well.
    V/T's black swan was awesome.
    both of carolina's programs, she is just beautiful.
    Jeremy's long was amazing.
    Mao's Liebestraum of course.
    both D/W and V/M freedances were so enjoyable and entertaining.

    Alena's programs had NO choreography.
    Pretty sure everyone else will say it, but Mirai's lifeless programs.
    aaaaand alissa's sad, depressing long. that is the one program of the year that i am SO glad is gone.
    I don't want to call Rachael's firebird bad...but it wasn't good either. it was kind of like Leonova's programs...not great choreography, but she sold the hell out of it at nats which made it enjoyable to watch.
    i didn't enjoy either of agnes' programs. i felt they were too similar, along with her dresses.
    same with caroline's programs. the music may not have been similar, but the dresses were. i wasn't a fan of either music pieces either.
    and liza's too...both programs were latin-ish and the choreography and ice coverage were bad.
    adelina's short, costume(s) included
    ksenia's marilyn monroe long...oh dear.

    Yuzuru sp and lp
    Ashley's lp

    hard to say the worst but some skaters such as Leonova, and Denney/Coughlin need more choreography. Even though Joubert and Amodio don't have the best choreography they are wonderful entertainer's.

    It is a season of Long Programs and Galas.

    Ladies:

    Wagner's Black Swan, should have been a bigger block buster at world championships where her PCS was under marked.

    Mao's Jupiter Gala, my fav work from her so far.



    Mens:

    Hanyu's Romeo and Juliet (Raved too much already since beginning of the season)

    Jeremy's Exogenesis Symphony by Muse (Gorgeous piece of work, he is en route to become a Lambiel or a Buttle.)

    Daisuke's Blues for Klook

    Daisuke's Gala Legend of 1900 aka Wil Smith's Seven Pounds
    (This is a wonderful ending complimenting the central theme to Daisuke's suite programs this year. A challenge to rift to repetitions in rhythm and phrasing, but still find the delicate emotional tones in each movements and expression, one of slow burning contemplation with intense bursts of colour and vigour. Mastering 'less is more' and that the abstract can still form a deep impression that lingers, that moves and mesmerizes. It is not the sort of audience friendly (and judges friendly apparently) suite of programs and requires more work from the audience to really paying attention and appreciate, but he made it so easy. In any other hands today, it could be monotonous and boring instead of slow burning and haunting.)

    Patrick Chan's Elegie Gala at WC. First time I consider Patrick Chan might be one of the greatest of all time. The whole thing just works (and couldn't come at a better time to silent the critics.)


    Worsts:

    Alena's LP and pretty much anything via Morozov Inc. COP formula, I hope he doesn't ruin Julia Lipnitskaia with over indulgence.
    Ksenia Makarova's LP, I feel sorry she had to skate a whole season to that music edit and still 'act' like she is in love with it. She deserve some sort of medal just for that surely!

    D/W's Die Fledermaus
    Takahashi's long program
    Mao Asada's Jupiter (I Vow to Thee, My Country) gala


    Special mention to Patrick's amazing Jeffrey Buttle gala program

    Short program:
    Kanako Murakami
    Elene Gedevanishvili
    Akiko Suzuki
    My absolute favorites this season, although it took awhile for the first two to grow on me. Others worth mentioning: Mao Asada, Carolina Kostner, Adelina Sotnikova.

    Daisuke Takahashi
    Jeremy Abbott
    Other programms I liked were those of Javier Fernandez, Yuzuru Hanyu and Artur Gachinski (when he skated like he did at EC)

    Long program:
    Ashley Wagner
    Carolina Kostner
    Akiko Suzuki
    Mao Asada

    Yuzuru Hanyu (favorite program of the season!)
    Daisuke Takahashi
    And that was pretty much it... a lot of nice programs, but nothing really special anymore I'd like to mention.

    Ex:
    Mao Asadas Jupiter!
    Already the first seconds reminded me again why this woman would always belong in my all time favorites list, no matter where she goes from here on.
    Sotnikova's 'Hernandos Hideaway' and Suzuki's 'Show me how you burlesque' were very enjoybale to watch too.

    For the men, I liked both of Patrick Chans programs this season. The first made me smile, the second was simply stunning.
