Before I begin, I have a couple of things to say about PC: (1) I wish I had seen more of their shows from the past; (2) They are a corps in high need of a breakout show so that we can start really talking about them.

That being said...

Favorite: 2012, Spectrum. Easily some of their best musical moments ever came from this show.

Least favorite: 2015, The Catalyst. I liked the ballad, but the ending was an enormous downer. Also, why did the design team think a show about a box was a good idea?

2002 is an all time fave for the music.   They never left California, which is a shame....the rest of you missed out.

2008 is definitely my favorite.

2004 is second, but I'm biased.

I liked the concept of 2014 -- "No Strings Attached."

Favorite -- 2016 "The Union" (yes -- biased, too)

Next -- 2017 "Golden State of Mind"

I agree with @Cadevilina Crown. I am hoping for an exciting breakout season from Pacific Crest soon.

They have great artwork and t-shirts available for their shows.

2017 was well executed but left me wanting more. This was the only time I have seen Pacific Crest live.

I did enjoy 2016 the union. All the train stuff was really cool but not over the top. My vote goes to 2016 the Union.

2010 the maze gets an HM.

2012 Spectrum gets the nod as I will not count my vote for 2016 as double on the tie breaker.

I will be back momentarily with my week 22 thread which I am super excited about.
