TVTalk Draft Game… Semi-Finals…down to the wire!

Welcome to Semi-Finals of the TVTalk Draft Tournament! In this thread, the players drafted a virtual “lineup” of seven seasons from actual television shows. Now, it is up to you, the TVTalk community, to vote on which “Network Executive” has drafted the best lineup.

We are now down to four excellent collections. In order to vote, you need to reply to this post telling me who you think has the best lineup. Your vote will not count unless you vote on every pair! Please do not vote if you cannot observe this simple rule.

Players in the game are also allowed to vote. Optionally, they are also allowed to post to this thread telling everybody why they think you should vote for their lineup.

So, let the voting begin! The polls close on Thursday, October 13, exactly 24 hours after the exact time of the timestamp of this post. Match-ups will be listed in the first reply to this post.

Good luck to all the participants!

If by a miracle I win this one, I fear facing off against das! Eek! I'm still amazed I made it this far.

1. das Monkey - Easy call here. B5 is my favorite show. Homicide is in my Top 5, if not Top 3. And I'm a Sports Night fan. I've still not gotten around to Firefly, but I'd love to at some point. Scott27 doesn't really have anything I hate (except for South Park), but nothing is really outstanding either.

2. Jericho - Supermallet's lineup just seems boring to me. Jerico on the other hand has Babylon 5 (see my comments above), Deadwood and Rome. I like to talk bad about Sopranos, but the show itself is good (just overrated and too strung out). The other 3 I've not seen and would love to.

Well, color me surprised. I thought auto's line-up was amazing. Oh well ...

1. das Monkey
2. I still think it's way too much drama, but this round it's the superior line-up. Jericho

Thanks das. I also thought I had a decent change of seeing you in the finals but it wasn't to be.

Good luck.
