Liza's SP is not choreographed by Buttle, but by Russians. He did her LP. The season hasn't started yet. Let's wait until these ladies have more mileage on the programs.

Thank God for Stephane Lambiel and Matt Savoie!
Kaetlyn's SP is a work in progress and she's obviously still trying to get comfortable with the complex choreography. I love that she's challenging herself and see so much potential in this!

Agreed. The GP doesn't even start for another 2 and a half months. Plenty of time to refine and improve...what we see during the off-season is rarely, if ever, the finished product.

He won't be able to use a cape in competition, will he?

I liked Akiko's SP but I liked her SP from last year more.
That said we still have to see how it shows in the GP before I make true judgements

Kim Hae-Jins new freeskate is to swan lake
And that seems to be her new SP . But I don´t know the music.

And there we have Park So-Youn. Her FS and SP So many swans. But So-Youn missed to qualify for JGP. For Korea Kim Hae-Jin, Choi Da-Bin and two other girls are going. :-(

I liked it also! Lots of personality in the dance.

There is plenty of room for them to improve this over the season... speed, twizzles, and I thought the lift was a bit ordinary, except for the entrance.
When they get the bugs ironed out, this should be dazzling.

Akiko: I'm personally not impressed with the first half, but the second part is beautiful and the final scratch spin is just I see that she's using the loop now, so her SP is really going down, technically: in 2011-2012 the lutz, last year the flip and now the loop... please, Akiko, at least just skate well this "easy" layout!!
V/M: I basically love the first part, don't like the middle section, like the last part The program begins wonderfully (it looks a bit like their 2011 SD), the step sequence is really good and I really like the "mirror" section, too; what I didn't really like was the Finnstep, it looked really rushed to me, I would be really interested in reading the protocols, just to know the levels and GOEs they received the last part was ok, it looked like it needed work but the choreography is good! I would say that they need more speed, overall...

Do we know that this is the layout she will be using during the season? Has she said anything about going for easier content this year?

Sounds like Umbrellas of Cherbourg to me

No, this is just my speculation, sorry, I should have specified it... Maybe in this period she's having trouble with her flip so she chose the loop for this EX (I hope so!)...
