  1. Well my only complaint is level of content, which is given a pass since the designers programed something within Boston's reach at the time. So it does have something to do with programming I'm sure it won't be a concern for their 2018 production.
  2. If I had to choose I'd say Boston for continuing. This is pretty tough to answer as each show had parts I liked and those I'd rather not see again. So I'll choose things from each group I want to continue and those I want abandoned. Continued: BD - Entertainment factor, Uniforms, Emotional appeal SCV - Drill, Highly technical colorguard, Visual design in general Crown - Drill, Uniforms, The Opener The Cavaliers - Entertainment factor, Uniforms, Star of Indiana jokes Bloo - Music selection, Crowd appeal Boston - Pretty much everything. Some more meaty programs, but they get a pass since it was their first year with the new crew Abandoned: BD: Rihanna, Difficulty of drill (I didn't think it was easy, but they can handle more), SCV: Uniforms, Giving most of the brass contributions to a group of miced players, Constant percussion breaks Crown: SINGERS, Boards that trip up the members as they march, Percussion tag endings Cavs: Short musical phrases, annoying sound effects Bloo: Uniforms, playing a ballad through mics and speakers, Giant immovable props that shake when the members move on it, Covering one of the best tuba lines in DCI with synth Boston: Like I said they get a pass

    It was hardly even making a statement. It was just talking about what was happening in the show, during the show, non-stop. Ridiculous.
  4. What you want for 2018

    Overall? Better use of electronics. Also better ballads from most corps. BD smoked everyone last year.

    I think crown had enough boards on the field last season to write a dissertation.
  6. Cadets 2018

    Thanks for the reply. I definitely agree that with the money and effort the members are putting in they should feel accomplished about their season.
  7. Cadets 2018

    Haha well obviously that would be preferred. I know Cadets have a crazy history, but sometimes I think they have expectations put on them that aren't super realistic given their current situation. Personally I want to see a great show that gains competitive ground instead of losing it. Whether it's competing for 1st or 12th I don't really care.
  8. Cadets 2018

    This is not meant as an attack, but I was curious what exactly you hope from The Cadets. A championship? General improvement? A show that is entertaining and generally appealing?
  9. Cadets 2018

    That's pretty much how I live my whole life! It's a good way to keep a positive outlook while still being realistic.
  10. Cadets 2018

    Thought I'd bring a little positive in this thread. Just wanted to say as far as spandex costumes go I rather like this one for The Cadets. Also dig the music choices so far. I hope that their brass line has some more meat this year, they were way better than the book they were given last year.

    It's pretty humorous to me how people called them pajamas when they first started wearing them, but now they have one of if not the best looking "non-traditional" uniform.
  12. Carolina Crown 2018

    Sounds like it'll be my favorite show of all time then.

    Oh good, I thought he meant the sound was gonna skip constantly until you give up and throw it out. I miss the tapes tbh.
  14. 2018 Rules proposals

    Limiting something can make you better at it. I thought he meant be more tasteful in their approach. Honestly I have a good feeling about this proposal!
