The choices are in alphabetical order by show title. (I will generally be omitting subtitles.) Please feel free to respond with comments about why you chose the show you did, or to rank all ten shows if you wish. To assist with the latter, here they are again for easier copy/pasting:

Above and Beyond (Crossmen 2015)

Alma Gitana (Crossmen 2014)

ATL Confidential (Spirit of Atlanta 2011)

Fragile (Crossmen 2012)

I Am Joan (Phantom Regiment 2019)

The In-Between (Crossmen 2018)

The Last Man Standing (Madison Scouts 2017)

The Prayer Cycle (Glassmen 2010)

Quixotic (Boston Crusaders 2016)

Voodoo (Blue Stars 2013)

A new poll for each higher placement (and one extra) will follow each day.

(Those who wish to argue that decades must conclude with years ending in zero will be wasting their time, I think.)

All solid shows, but I chose Crossmen 2012 because it marked the start of their series of Finals appearances this decade while also being just a great show from start to finish.

I have to go with Glassmen for this one. That show was absolutely wonderful!


Their music. Their uniforms. All of it. Just pure elegance.

The guard costuming was very controversial at the time in these forums. Sample comment: "it makes me sick to see it". I thought the objections were ridiculous -- and I think some of the people then making them (a few still post here) now feel silly. But the most contentious thread on the subject got closed, so I'd better just leave it at that.

Guess I should have specified I meant the corps-proper uniforms, the gold was stunning! But from the one image I can find of the guard, it too looks stunning. Though, I can't remember if there were mid-show changes that would have upset people with the unis.
