    SCV's show was an epic musical fail.

    OK, thanks for the info. I was under the impression the judges saw the shows on a more regular basis. And just so we're clear, I am not implying any sort of dissatisfaction regarding SCVs show. Yes, I'm not familiar with any of the music, but it is growing on me. And the musicianship on display was unreal.

    Here is where the disconnect is, I think. While many people only see the show a few times at most, the corps are programming for the judges, who see the show time after time after time. As a result, shows have a tendency to overwhelm on first viewing.

    Scv - a new era?

    Yeah, there were times during the show when I thought "Would it have killed them to wear the classic unis and get a little more color out there?" :)

    Mandarins 2018

    When their scores were announced, I was delighted to see MMs from the corps on either side reaching out to congratulate them. Saw them in Birmingham, and everyone there was won over by their performance and energy.
  6. OK, Just watched SCV's championship run. First time I've seen their show this season. I'm not entirely sure how all that movement represented Babylon. I'm not sure I really care. That is one of the most stunning displays of musicianship I've ever seen. Absolutely breathtaking. Vanguard, congrats on a championship show for the ages.
  7. Just based on the snippets, I'd go 1. SCV 2. BLOO 3. BD
  8. no sound on the score feed.

    Crossmen catch a break with an intermission separating them from Mandarins.

    Apologies--I definitely should have given a shout out to the hometown corps! Really couldn't get a feel for the visuals from my vantage point, I really enjoyed the sounds of "Knightmares". The mom tucking her daughter in at the beginning was a great image to set the mood for the entire show.

    Hmmm. Give the quality of PRs shows leading up to 2008, calling it a fluke seems more than just a bit of a stretch.

    At the Birmingham show, I was stunned by the quality of the shows from top to bottom. PR has much better than 12th place talent; the show design is holding them back. Of course, they went on right after Mandarins, which really wasn't fair. The Mandarins' talent is not on par with PR, but they have a brilliantly designed show and they are getting everything they can out of it.

    Saw them last night in Birmingham. Absolutely amazing show! Babies were flying left and right.

    The confusion was my fault--I didn't think guitars were permitted, so I assumed they were recorded.
