Le professionnel d'élite
Actually, I agree with you and with the risk of sounding like a snobby millennium, I don't think introducing someone to skating through 80s/90s skaters from the 6.0 era is a great idea. It's not even just about the video quality, but even for a skating fan who has been around for a while, the old school style can be hard to get into, not because it's bad, but because it's somewhat different than the modern skating we are used to. For someone brand new to skating, it can give them the wrong idea about the current state of the sport, both athletically and artistically.
It's called "What program would you use?" What skater would be the ultimate to show. Sorry but for me and many others in this thread, that's Kurt Browning, Virtue/Moir and others. Some of Kurt's best skating's from the mid-late 90's. I know many that go to skating shows and came because of watching the recent Olympics, and they see someone like Kurt skate and go "WOW!" where has he been all my life?!? That they'd rather watch a skater like him compared to many of the recent ones.
I've seen it time and time again. It has nothing to do with the 6.0 era vs IJS.
