    I could pretty much politic in favour of most of Plushenko's programs,

    But the dumbed down version of "The godfather" for the 2006 season, Especially the Olympic performance of it,

    Just makes me cringe.

    I also think Jason's Liebestraume came a couple of seasons too early. His version was beautiful, but I would have loved to see what an extra couple of years' maturity would have done for it.

    From competitive program:
    - Kulik's oly Free program. After the beautiful Romeo a year before, this program looked to me a bit empty. Yellow shirt didn't help either
    - Carolina's Bolero. I like normally her programs, but this one put me to sleep.

    Oh it seems the Fs is so subjective..for me Carolina's Bolero is so awesome, sexy, beautiful and I didn't like her programs and performances before, because I found them too boring..

    This is a great idea for a thread!

    YuNa's Roxanne, mainly because I just hate that crude song. Nothing wrong with her skating of it.
    Mao: Bells of Moscow. That relentlessly droning version of the Rachmaninoff prelude seemed a waste of her fluid, buoyant skating.
    Gordeyeva/Grinkov: Believe it or not, their Beethoven free skate in the 1994 Olympics. They had stretched so much artistically in their pro career, and then they went back to such tight formalism for this return to competition. Especially considering the emotional power projected by Mishkutenok/Dmitriev, I think it made G/G look very conservative.
    Michelle: The recycling of East of Eden as her 2002 short program. This had such immediacy when she did it as an exhibition in both 1995 and 1998, but it looked squeezed into shape for the demands of a short program. The footwork especially didn't go with the music. Re-using this music after her break with Carroll only served to underline the fact that she was operating with fewer resources than she needed for such an important competition.

    I love their Reflections program too! So terribly underrated and misunderstood. I wish they had kept it for Worlds.

    Yuzuru - Parisienne Walkways. I hate the music & I'm sick of it.
    Plushy - Pasadena ex. I hope he burned that costume!
    Daisuke - Beatles FS - bland, not up to his usual standard

    Together with Javier's aerobic EX. The exhibition programs should be something entertain or memorable, not just patch your competitive routine together with some cheesy music.

    That suit is the reason I dislike that program.

    Hah, but it's so campy! I guess I can tell why some people hate it in general, but for an exhibition it's amazing (and also really unexpected to see him of all people do that).
