my own personal votes...

ROUND 4
MATCH #01 - ummm Twilight Zone is overrated, Outer Limits is much better and TZ is just a ripoff of One Step Beyond anyway.... plus I'm mad that TZ beat one of my favorite shows Stargate SG1... so my vote goes to Monty Python

MATCH #02 - ohhhh this is hard... the only Star Trek that's worth a damn against one of the best most original sci fi series in years... painful... I'll go with Farscape

MATCH #03 - My top two favorite shows! The Time Traveling Time Lord or the Vampire Slaying Teenager?? They don't have much in common except Anthony Stewart Head has been in both. I have to pick one.... it comes down to one is the Greatest sci fi TV series of all times and the other isn't. I have to go with the Doctor! Doctor Who is the best... over 700 episodes, over 25 years. so many modern ideas sci fi today from the Borg to the Matrix was done on Doctor WHo 20 years earlier. Go Doctor Who!

MATCH #04 - no pick This one is so hard for me to choose, I'm going to wuss out and skip it. I love both of these shows.

Re: Sci Fi / Cult TV Tournament : ROUND 4

MATCH #01 - THE TWILIGHT ZONE vs MONTY PYTHONS FLYING CIRCUS
Ouch - two classic shows that I loved as a kid. However, as brilliant as the Pythons were, the writing in TZ was consistantly astounding and insightful. Thus Twilight Zone gets the nod.

MATCH #02 - STAR TREK vs FARSCAPE
Trek, all the way.

MATCH #03 - BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER vs DOCTOR WHO
I love Buffy, but I *LIVE* for Doctor Who.

MATCH #04 - ANGEL vs QUANTUM LEAP
No contest. Quantum Leap takes the prize.

Easiest round yet. If we ever do another one of these we need to rank the shows and do a bracket matchup like the NCAA basketball tourney.
