2016 Character Cup - Round 2A




The first round is about finished and wow, was that brutal. Of the top 5 characters last year, 2 aren't in the contest and the other 3 got out in round 1. Jamie Fraser, last year's #5, lost by one vote. I have a feeling this year's contest is going to be very interesting. If you would like more stats on the Cup so far, please click the link below. There are also links to the rules and each of the rounds so far. You still have about 5 minutes to cast your vote for round 1D if you haven't yet. Polls have been very close there too. From now on, no rounds will overlap so you can expect new polls to go up approximately 15-30 minutes after the previous polls close. Polls last for about 24 hours. Happy voting!


Prediction Contest (including rounds 1A and 1B) - With the left side of the bracket complete, Isaac is in first place with 13 out of 16 correct. Nice job! Tied in second place with 12 correct are JB and MariaSol. 13 people got 11 out of 16 right, none of which were me. My brackets are already a mess. How are you doing?

Wish List Contest - Both Silver and MariaSol should be pretty happy since 11 of the 16 polls went their way. 10 went Emma's way, while Amber and Dahne had 9.

Mini-Contest - Last year we added a mini-contest on favorite TV vehicles when there were 8 characters left in order to keep more people interested once their favorites were out. This year we are going to do Favorite Villains. Shows with characters still in the contest at round 4 are NOT eligible. Nominations will be posted in tomorrow's polls.

Today's TV Talk Topic: 
 Hollywood's Dedication to Recycling


Reboots, remakes, un-cancellations, bringing back long-cancelled shows, Americanizing other countries' shows - whatever you want to call it, Hollywood is fascinated with recycling shows, movies, comics, characters, and plot lines these days. How do you feel about these old ideas made new? Which of these shows have you really enjoyed? Which would have been better left to history? Which of the new crop are you looking forward to...or not? How do you feel about shows like 24, Heroes, Full House, Boy Meets World, Gilmore Girls, The X-Files, Twin Peaks, Prison Break, etc. coming back after long absences with the same actors? Which past shows would you like to be remade?  Which shows do you hope are never remade?
