Our tourney mod, turborobb, has been MIA from this board for two weeks. So, I think we all need a answer to this tournament (or, at least I do ) and have posted the next round.

Sorry, but I don't have the fancy tools to show the head-to-head.

-------------------------------------------------------------

last round...
Farscape defeated Star Trek, 19-13
Buffy the Vampire Slayer defeated Doctor Who, 21-14

Re: Sci Fi / Cult Tournament: ROUND 5

MATCH #01 -- FARSCAPE VS BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
Never watched Farscape, but since Buffy put the stake to Doctor Who, Farscape gets my "Anti-Buffy" vote.

MATCH #02 -- QUANTUM LEAP VS THE TWILIGHT ZONE
Sweet mother of god - talk about a hell of a choice. Zone has some all time, Genre shaping classics under it's belt. Leap had some really strong writing and two wonderful leads. And worse, I love both shows just as much.

In the end I think I'll give Zone the nod. It's long lasting impact on Television is undeniable.

MATCH #01 -- FARSCAPE

Though I love Buffy, Farscape has had greater staying power for me in the way I rewatch dvd's. Also, it didn't have entire sucky seasons like Buffy did (though I will say towards the end, I got really sick of the old lady with the extra eye).

MATCH #02 -- THE TWILIGHT ZONE

Neither show in match #02 is one of my favorites. Wish I could write in Babylon 5 instead, since imo it's the only show that competes with Farscape.

Buffy and Twilight Zone.

(I mean no offense, but while Farscape is a decent show, it doesn't hold a candle to at least half a dozen other shows that have been in this tourney.)

hi gang, I'm back!

sorry about that I had to leave town for a couple weeks in an emergancy.

thanks for picking up the slack, I don't mind, but you got the match-ups wrong, it should have been Twilight Zone vs Farscape and Buffy vs Leap.

Looks like it might come down to Claudia Black vs. Sarah Michelle Gellar in a sudden-death cage match.

I'll start popping my popcorn now...
