Yes and there are some respected russian commentators who have said wonderful things about the V&M Carmen. I think you really have to see the program a couple of times to get into it.
Also Olys are close so there is big push in Russia for I&K to move up the rankings.
As if you can know how may times I have watched it. No need to get personal and patronize the opponent. Besides all technical mistakes (and yet super high GOE ), low speed and heaviness, especially of Tessa, there are a lot of other things that don't correspond to any idea of "wonderful" to my mind. It's dull, not interesting, false and forced in emotions, the music arrange is just desperate- long and sleepy, then suddenly the faster part to end the whole thing. Could be an average dance of dancers below 5th place in ranking if V/M didn't have OGM and other titles. IMO all this so-called unusualness of the dance was created to hide the poor technique and health issue that they have to deal now.I think you really have to see the program a couple of times to get into it.
Lets talk. To each his own....
Lets agree to disagree. I am not one who disrespects other's positions even if I disagree with them.

The coverage on TSN of Skate Canada this week has been lousy. I'm watching the Gala right now and they omitted to show Gilles & Poirier, even though they are a Canadian team and even though they finished 4th. Instead they chose to show Hubbell & Donahue who are American and who finished 5th. Why? They pulled this same stunt in the Ice Dance Free over the weekend. Why weren't G&P shown?

http://winter.sport-express.ru/figur...reviews/25859/ If V/M fans want to have such a tabloid journalist as some backup of their opinon, it's up to them. But I doubt they should expect everyone to follow the view of someone so "professional" and "knowledgable". Still to be fair here in the article she wrote one valid thing: "It is a such thin line over which the fine art becomes the vulgarity. This Carmen dance choreographed by Zueva is balancing on this line from start to end". At least Vaitsehovskaya wasn't the one. Here is another article with anatomy class lexics: http://www.thestar.com/sports/articl...y-free-program
