    Not necessarily a particular program, but I really believe the V/M and D/W rivalry will be discussed for many, many years.

    If I had to pick one program from each, it would be D/W "Giselle" or "DF" and V/M "Mahler" (stretching the definition of "quad" just a bit".)

    Overall, I'd classify it as a rather uninteresting 4 years for the sport.

    (I found that Menshov costume usage to be quite awful, btw...there wasn't enough emphasis placed on it and it came too early in the program)
    There was a junior team at French Masters this season who did a mid program costume change from white to black swan - memorable but for all the wrong reasons.

    For me, the programs that will still be talked about in each discipline are

    Takahashi: Blues for Klook
    Kostner: Bolero
    V/T: Masquerade Waltz
    V/M: Carmen

    Those are the programs that will be remembered by skating fans, but I think the casual viewers will also remember I/K's Swan Lake & Lipnitskaia's Schindlers List - Everyone I spoke to at work who usually care nothing for skating were most impressed by "the russians who did the ballet" and "the little girl in the red dress".

    I think D/W's Scheherazade, Jason's Riverdance and Yuzuru's Parisienne Walkways. None of the ladies really did anything standout for me in Sochi. I was certainly unimpressed by both Yulia and Yuna, and while Adelina skated clean, they weren't that sort of trademark program that everyone would remember forever.


    I was rather hoping that Joshua's Schindler's List would become such, but unfortunately, he didn't have a good season. And Max's Tron SP will always be remembered by the Tron fandom

    I/K's Schindler's List (Juniors), Swan Lake (OG 2014) good range. They just need to mature.

    "General public" is going to forget about Yulia too. If they don't remember anyone else they won't remember her either.

    I think Julia's SL and Caro's Bolero (although it was not my favorite i'm sorry to admit). I think memorable programs are usually caused by having iconic music and skating lights out to it. It's hard for me to think of any program being unforgettable if the music was has been over used or if the music is something I've never heard (with the exception of Michelle Kwan's East of Eden which i had never heard but instantly loved, but I digress since that was not from this quadrent...)

    Mao's, Yuna's, Adelina's (yes, as I think no Yunafan will ever get over it for all the good or wrong reasons), Carolina's and both disastrous Chan's and Hanyu's long programmes at the Olympics as well as Lipnistkaia's lp at Europeans which was absolutely Magical in spite of that minor wobble on her first double axel.

    As perfect as they were, I don't care for any of D/W performances... Maybe too perfect, lol.

    Carolina Kostner's Ave Maria and Bolero (nobody will understand how she only won bronze)
    Dai's 2012 programs, the best 1-2 punch by any man in recent memory
    S/S's Pina
    Possibly V/M's Carmen, Lipnitskaya's Schindler's List and Jason Brown's Riverdance
