Like you can't believe this particularly awful performance still got a massive score and won, and what's wrong with those awful judges, etc. Also, I really enjoy (and oft times, prefer) exhibition numbers. Please recommend any good ones from galas. And as someone who was really excited by the inclusion of hip hop as a rhythm option in junior ice dance this season, dare I ask if any team actually put together a credible hip hop number? Thanks for any help you can give!
    View ladies at NHK and let me know your thoughts.

    The most exciting program for me this season is Virtue and Moir's Carmen, but it seems polorizing on the figure skating world (some judges/fan are just infuriating not able to see masterworks)

    The most exciting comeback: Yuna Kim at NRW Trophy Dortmund same weekend as GPF. Watch everyone else at GPF at Sochi Olympic rink then watch her at a B competition with 300 seats. Oh the irony.

    Most sensational record breaking performance: Hanyu broke SP score twice, is the program worth the hype? Or was more down to the performer worth the hype. I put down the latter by far.

    I'd recommend Ross Miner's LP at NHK which he has earned 161.96 and put him on the podium:

    He has successfully jumped a 4S.

    When I saw NHK live, I thought Akiko should win.

    I also like V/M’s Carmen, as well as B/S’s FD. I see their links are posted on the first page, so check those out. I hope to see them live someday.

    Now Hanyu’s FS is also growing on me-again it’s probably more due to Hanyu the performer than the program itself. To me his FS at GPF was the skate of the night and he should win GPF: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DzUd_RF6Jk
    I read that he was very sick at the GPF but fought through his FS, that reminds me of how he fought through his FS in Nice with the ankle sprain. And I was shocked that he could improve so much in 2 weeks time from NHK and that he maintained fast speed throughout the FS and did not slow down in the last minute of the program.

    Christina Gao's SP at Skate America; all of Ashley Wagner's. And C/L's very Italian "Carmen" (esp at GPF). Their choregraphy is wonderful and these two Italians really get into the drama.
