The level of skating was a bit uneven in the first three events, but Skate America, Skate Canada, and Cup of China did have their moments. We have yet to see some of the big names (Mao Asada, the aforementioned Brian Joubert, Ilinykh/Katsalapov, Tomas Verner, etc), so I expect the competition to heat up in the next three weeks.
I haven't been blown away with many of the program choices this year, but a few have stood out for me. My favorites of the season thus far:
Jeremy Abbott's long program - "Exogenesis Symphony" by Muse
Aliona Savchenko/Robin Szolkowy's long program - Pina soundtrack
Meryl Davis/Charlie White's short dance - Samba and Rhumba medley
Daisuke Takahashi's short program - In the Garden of Souls
Madison Chock/Evan Bates's free dance - Prelude in E Minor by Chopin
Amanda Evora/Mark Ladwig's long program - Daphnis & Chloe/Reverie
