Whew! Round 4 was all kinds of excitement with the Jamie vs. Mickey poll close until the end. Not only that but the poll smashed the record for number of people voting this year with 14,068 votes. Mickey, Root, and Jamie also smashed the individual vote records with 7194, 7013, and 6874 votes respectively. Thanks to all fans who participated and made the polls so interesting. Going into the final four we have Samantha "Root" Groves, Dana Scully, Mickey Milkovich, and Peggy Carter. Also don't forget the TV Vehicle contest below. Continuing on in that one are Metallicar (Dean's Baby), Lola, the TARDIS, Donas, Serenity, the General Lee, the Batmobile, and the Enterprise. Finally, if you are interested in having a special poll for 3rd and 4th place, let me know in the comments below. Until then, happy voting!
Prediction Cup Update - Again Perrin retains the lead, looking good for a victory. Challenging Perrin are Idahoow in second and Wired Wizard in third. Nice work, guys. You are the kings of predicting in a contest that has been very close. Awesome!

Today's TV Talk Topic:
TV Talk Topic: Special thanks to Robert Fruin, XMan, and Emma for inspiring this topic.
TV Show Extensions - All shows leave a legacy to their fans but some shows take on a life of their own, often creating new shows or getting rebooted from the past. Do you like spin-offs and reboots? What are your favorites and least favorites? What shows would you create a spin-off for and which characters or story ideas would you use? What shows would you like to get rebooted? Are there any shows you would rather NOT EVER be rebooted? Do reboots diminish originals or bring new audiences to cult classics (XMAN)? If you could bring back a show intact (meaning same cast in the same roles), which one would it be? Are you interested in any of the proposed spin-offs and reboots in the works?
This is just an experimental contest to see if people like the idea. I haven't done a contest-within-a-contest before so it may work well or it may not. We'll revisit it on Thursday to see if people like it or not. Basically the rules are the same as the Character Cup in that it's 1 vote per IP, about 24 hours to vote, and winner moves on. On Thursday, we will crown the winners as Best TV Vehicle, either past or current. There will not be a run-off between them because we won't have time. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments below.
