    I'm waiting to see the full Carmen to really comment - the parts I have seen grab me...but admittedly, partly because they are so, well, explicit and partly because Tessa and Scott just have this way of commanding attention. Can't wait to see the full production and to read everyone's commentary. And for Tonichelle - I'm not sure, but it seemed like 'head grabs' wasn't, well, the grabbing I saw and while again I admit I was sort of knocked over in a good way by it (like, I smiled and said, OMG...wow...with a California 1980s accent just for fun); but I can't help but wonder if others will feel it is too explicit and not only that, but not creative as a result (so I'm talking about what I saw as the crotch grabs)...
    when she wasn't grabbing at his crotch (or putting hers in his face) she was grabbing his head... and a couple of times grabbed her own... it was excessive

    I kept thinking while I was watching V/M that it takes complete trust and closeness to do this. Not every ice dancer could do. The only part I've seen in their practice that I don't like was the lift ended with Tessa sitting on Scott's shoulders right at his face. It was ugly. The rest of them were quite heart-pounding to watch.

    Agreed. His skating is simply magnificent--regal, beautiful, wonderful. If Yuzuru is the new prince, Patrick is still the rightful king. Love his skating.

    No, you might want to contact this youtube user, seems like he/she recorded the stuff but downloaded probably not all skaters. Who knows he/she might have Ross somewhere in his comp: www.youtube.com/user/diodio0013plus
    Also, some youtubes links are closed, at least in my country, Mura's for example, the same user downloaded them here: www.dailymotion.com/user/diodio0013/1

    The should put NSFW across the TV screen. Actually, some moments indeed look ugly, have no idea why was it necessary to have these cheap tricks. I didn't like them in V/T SP, I don't like them here either. Well, waiting to see the whole dance in costumes.

    I'll know better after Saturday , but I'm feeling this Carmen is exactly what I'd been hoping for. As I've said elsewhere, I'm a fan of the Petit ballet , and this is very much from the same mold ...but quite a bit less explicit , which is fine . ( There's no actual touching of the naughty bits , and I'm not asking for more )

    The sexual aspect ( not just sensual ) is entirely apros pos for Carmen , all the more so because it's expressed in the skating ( not stopping and posing at center ice , as we've seen in several Morozov programs , e.g.)

    I'm wondering if I'll find myself in a reverse situation from last year... My 2 favourite teams are 1.V/M and 2.D/W. Last year, I loved DF for D/W and struggled all season to like FF ( though I could see it was difficult and really well skated ..especially by the end of the season ).

    This year ,leaving aside the "after" choreography (which I thoroughly disliked) I'm pretty neutral over D/W's Notre Dame ,though I really like some lifts and other elements ,and realize it will develop over the season . But I somehow wanted something more for them.

    From the first partial glimpse of Carmen , I feel it can be a tour de force for V/M. We'll see what Saturday brings ... and what the judges have to say... ( I like both SDs )

    I really like C/L's SD , but though Anna looked delectable in her red costume in practice today , I think their Carmen may suffer by comparison. ( unfairly so, because they're really not in the same league with V/M)

    I also like both H/D's programs a lot. They had a kind of "off" FD practice, but if they skate well in competition , they're pretty darn flamenco.

    C/J's SD is a bit of a disaster .. but I like their FD very much.

    I don't think R/T were having a good practice , but I think their SD could work..I can hardly weigh in on the Godfather..I find it pretty mundane ( maybe because I'm so bored with the music ) I guess it will all come down to how they skate it...

    ETA :Forgot Z/S..like both their programs and they seemed to be skating well . I like this team.

    Both G/P and R/H seemed self assured and on their game..I have to say Kharis looked lovely in her practice Uni .. she's really in fighting trim , and it's a joy to see her looking so .. in command. I can't say I like the material for either team, so far..with the possible exception of R/H's SD , which is promising if skated well.

    Why? It's the Carmen, full of passion!! I adore it!!! For me the best program of V/M ever !!!!
