she takes the audience on her journey of emotions
I agree that Julia (or her choreographer) have toned down her flexibility showiness a bit and it's most appreciated. Hopefully, she'll keep going down that path even more. I find that Julia has some sort of magnesticism. Her program at least isn't boring. I don't think she or her choreography come close to living up to the weightiness of the theme, which her costume and music choice bash us over the head with. But the choreo itself is better put together, I think, than Adelina's, which I just don't get.(sorry). But I have to try to forget what Julia's "theme" is when I watch.

On the 1st year of Yuna's senior season, her SP was El Tango de Roxanne and LP was Lark Ascending. Do you think Julia's programs this year has same level of performance as Yuna's first senior season?

You can't compare Julia to Kim. Kim's 2007 program didn't win much, but they were programs of exceptional qualities. The current scoring inflation is an illusion. Those programs if judged in the current scoring trend, could have garnered astronomical points. Well, not astronomical, but point is they have more qualities that scoring system can convert to number. Moreover Julia's skating is still junior, and even with a full consideration of the current judging tolerance Julia's level is only comparable with Adelia or Li or perhaps Gold.
