    I can see - it's the word "fake" that set me off. Though I'd love to see that longlist - I've always got room for more brilliance.

    People underestimate Tessa because she has this exquisite smileing face but its not just the facial expression with her its the dance movements that bring in the passion. Their worlds 2010 Farrucas is an example - they were a little more tentative at the Olys but didnt hold back at the worlds.

    To each his own. In my mind overt smouldering is too theatrical and over the top.

    Hmm.. Difficult to say anything without seeing the whole dance. Aren't they slower, or it's just training...

    Yes, I'm SO excited too!! Carmen is one of my favourites for FS, and V/M are my favourite couple competing at the moment, so I hope it will be something GREAT!

    The FD is replete with body grabbing and simulated passion. Just a more 'physical' take on that oh-we're-so-in-love V/M shtick.

    Why must someone be accused of being bitter just because they criticize V/M?

    The dance looks very meh to me. But I'm not really blown away by anyone's FD this year. I had to chuckle when P.J Kwong said that Carmen requires a diva presence on the ice, and that was Tessa Virtue. I think Tessa is a fabulous skater who brings many things to the ice, but a diva presence isn't one of them.

    I'm the same way, though I haven't seen their FD all the way through - but I'm not falling all over myself in love with it.

    I just saw the practice and thought it was fantastic! Don't know what people think is lacking.

    To each their own... i'm not impressed with either of Marina's top teams... it just seems too disconnected... *and yes I know V/M's practice was not a full program, I am talking mainly of D/W's FD* I'm also not encouraged by all the hugging/headgrabbing... they said they were going to be unique in their take... if they mean with added crotch grabbing then...

    So are we just not gonna talk about the immense amount of crotch/face interaction going on in V/M's FD?
