    I want Madison Scouts to remain all male but I fear that a poorly designed show and controversial costume choice will be used as reasoning for going co-ed. I think another failure to make Top 12 will do just that.

    From pictures, uniforms looked better on field than original pics. Not a good start score wise...barely above Colts and way behind upper echelon. That kind of low-level slotting early will be tough to overcome.

    Oh boy....that is laughable. I really have no words to how comical this looks.

    It was on a personal friend's page. Cadet alum who attended the standstill and yesterday's rehearsal.

    Saw a longer clip of the show on Facebook with drill. Big staircase prop. Female soloist is good and featured a bunch. She was wearing a purple dress in the run. Rest of corps not in uniform/costume. I didn't recognize the music but it was fast. Lots of screamers. Kind of a latin feel to some of the music.

    So outside of a brief clip on Facebook were any DCPers there and have any insights or thoughts on the music?

    Saw a brief clip on Facebook. Hornline sounded very strong and some sho nuff screamers.

    Here's a show design idea I had recently. "Escape" ...sort of a Shawshank Redemption with a twist. Guy is wrongly arrested and inprisoned. In prison he suffers torment and fight..losing his friend (ballad being the song Lost). He escapes but is killed in his escape. Show ends with him reuniting with his friend.
  9. I started the 2017 thread...why not 2018. Let's hear ya. What do you wish for in 2018? Keep costumes? Go back to superman suit? Modernize superman suit? Show ideas? Let's get the banter going.

    Alright...Scouts back in on a Saturday. Not my fav Scouts show ever, but a step in the right direction.

    A lot of great reviews and praise for The Men tonight. And widened that margin with Mandarins. Keep pushing, brothers.

    I agree...it's missing something. Not sure what to add but it lacks. The GE Mandarins and BC are putting out there is impressive and exciting. It was good to see Scouts live tonight. I applaud the Men for their work, but I'm just not a fan of the product when you compare it to others..namely Boston whose staff hit a homerun with that show concept. Some good moments, but nothing that just blew me up out of my seat.

    I know I'll get blasted by some, but I was not a fan of Blue Stars' show. Just one man's opinion, but it was boring and there was too much electronic "stuff"

    Whether BAC medals or not that staff knocked it out of the park with the show idea and effects.Academy...goofy but cute. Sort of a nod to VK 1992.

    Boston...WOW WOW WOW WOW......Best ending effect since Phantom 2008 in my opinion.
