Mid season, and the questions I want to ask the oldtimers and sharp-eyed commentors here are, what trend is most standing out for you this season, who has blown you away so far, who are you most sad about (potential un-realized and running out of time), which have been the most exciting performances so far (who has brought the magic)?
Right off the top of my head the saddest thing was watching Adelina this past weekend, such potential, her jumps are YuNa like but.... sad. Is it too soon to say it is over for her?
I haven't watched all the disciplines but I thought Julia's FS at Skate Canada and V/M this past weekend were the magical performances of the season.
The only trends I can see and say with confidence is the judging trend of D/W as the anointed favorites and Mao building a "head of steam" toward Sochi.
And oh yeah, Julia is the real deal.
