I'm surprised this thread has three pages! Given the nastiness recently I'm other threads.
I love Plushenko's tenacity.
Wicked Yankee Girl
I love the first lift in I&K's FD She hits such a stunning position.

Kostner seems a very nice lady
Plushenko's 3A-1Lo-3F is my favourite combination ever!
Aaron's new haircut looks good on him
Volosozhar/Trankov's sp is kinda likeable
Brezina's Japanese Kodo Drums was my favourite sp of both seasons he used it in
Patrick Chan has amazing quads, beautiful to watch when he hits them.
V/T's side by side jumps are amazing
Gracie Gold is stunning
Lipnitskaya's LP this season is very good and her outfit is very well chosen
Bobrova/Soloviev's SD in 2010-2011 season (the second one) was one of my favorites
W/P's FD last season was also one of my favorite FD in recent years
John Curry - Best lines ever.
Not a fan of the following skaters
Rippon - great lines
Miner - discipline
Irina - Great Triple Flip
Yuna- Great speed into Triple FLip/Toe
Surya - Toned like a goddess
Candeloro - personality
Agnes - Nice jumps
Van De Perren - spotting
Gotta Have Music
Not a fan of most of Alexei Y'.s pro programs, but I loved "Racing" & "Leyenda."
Philippe Candeloro's "D'Artagnan" was wonderful.
Best comeback EVOR!
This is a great idea for people to take a break from the incessant bickering, myself included.
Julia Lipnitskaya's determination, drive and work ethic is almost unprecedented.
Gracie Gold's 3L is very nice when it works.
Agnes Zawadzki's new FS is lovely.
Anna Pogorilaya's 3Lz-3T is superb.
Maxim Kovtun really knows how to land really difficult technical content.
Plushenko is a very brave skater.
V/T are skating better than any of the other Olympic gold hopefuls.
D/C have a fantastic triple twist.
Rachel Flatt is brilliant, very cute, and a great role model for the sport.
I have not seen nastiness-what thread? People disagree, and sometimes if they are attacked for being honest, which does happen, they will feel defensive, and may respond in kind. All in all people are very tame here, and profanity or true nastiness is never tolerated. Eventually, mods catch up. Some feel they are being censored, actually, and must be very careful. Given the different cultures, countries, nationalism etc, I think people do quite well.

With the right program--like they had last year (ok well 5/6ths of a FS), B/S are an exciting dance team.
I secretly adore the camp value of Russian costuming (gloves included--especially the gloves...).
