  1. 2018 Prediction Thread

    This visual still shows that based on trends and algorithms like 1. SCV 2. BD 3. Bluecoats
  2. All time shows: Phantom Regiment

    Nah. It certainly wasn't in the running for favorite...but it only got a few negatives. Phantasm ran away with that one. I know I am in the vast minority but I kind of liked the red violin. Swan Lake was my head scratcher for Phantom...but as many have said they just haven't been the same since 2012.
  3. All time shows: Phantom Regiment

    Thank you so much for everyone that has participated in all of these threads. Last but not least. The results for Phantom Regiment. 1. 1996 A Defiant Heart 2. 1989 From the New World Into a New Age 3. 2008 Spartacus 4. 1993 The Modern Imagination 5. TIE 2003 Harmonic Journey and 2006 Faust HMs for 1991, 2007, 2010, 1982, 1979 Least favorite 2017 Phantasm
  4. All time shows: Troopers

    Then 1985 it is. What a great discussion about the Troopers! Probably the most attention they have had on DCP in a long time
  5. All time shows: Phantom Regiment

    Favorites for me 1. 1996 A Defiant Heart. I think this is the best show musically of all time. 2. 1989- this show with New World symphony was absolutely stunning and probably would have won any other year. 3. 2008- Spartacus. No list is complete without a mention of this show. A total GE monster and their most complete show. A magical show in a year that had a lot of other great shows...and I show that I think set up a direction for other corps to follow from 09-present. 4. 1992. This is not a typo. This is the best 1812 overture I have ever heard. 5. 1979- I was debating between this and 2011 but I am going to go with the older show here.

  7. All time shows: Troopers

    Well we have a tie here between 1985 and 2009. Anyone care to break it?
  8. Boston Crusaders 2018

    MAYBE it is an Amelia Earhart show and Boston is going to announce the program today, which is International Women's Day.
  9. All time shows: Bluecoats

    Shout out to Caravan for the 3rd spot. Just shows how much DCP loves Latin/Jazz shows.
  10. I wish they were closer to, you know, Canton OH- but I am glad that they found a great facility for spring training.
  11. Crossmen Announce 2018 Program

    Yes. In general I have really enjoyed crossmen shows from the past 5 years much more than those from the 90s and 00s. 02 would be the exception- I love that show
  12. All time shows: Troopers

    I am going to go for somewhat opposite shows here 1973 2015- wild horses. It's a cheesy show with singing but I couldn't help but like the story
  13. All time shows: Bluecoats

    I 100% agree with you. In addition to your comments I felt it was underscored. From an execution standpoint I feel the corps was at it's best so far in 2015...but I am not well versed in color guard.
  14. For week 23 we are headed out to the wild west to discuss the Troopers. What are your top 1-5 Troopers shows? (Optional) What are your 1-3 least favorites from them?

  15. All time shows: Bluecoats

    Okay it took a long time to tally but here are the results and I knew 1 and 2 were extremely close and I apparently needed a recount lol 1. 2014 Tilt 2. 2016 Downside Up 3. 2005 Caravan 4. 2015 Kinetic Noise 5. 2010 Metropolis 6. 1987 7. 2008 The Boxee 8. 2006 Connexus 9. 2007 Criminal 10. 2017 Jagged Line HMs for 1989,1996,2001, 2009 Least Favorite goes to 1992. 03 and 04 seem to be forgotten years The only show that was close for getting an equal amount of +/- was 2000. Sample size was low for least favorite and controversial shows. I have to admit that I am surprised to see a low turnout for 2011 and 2013. I admit neither made my top 5 but both were great shows.
