A couple of very high seeds are in some trouble in this group so far.

Re: Favorite TV Character Tourney: Round of 128/Group #2

Arg! Picard vs. Data... big big ouch. It would be nice if there was a little fudge factor or stipulation that same show characters can't go up against each other before there are say, 64 or 32 people left

I'm sure you are doing it in a systematic way, so I can't fault you on that, but it's a little frustrating sometimes with the matchups.

^I hope it's not Gob vs. Tobias later.

3 very close matchups in this group. There could be a lot of "upsets" here.

Larry David may very well be one of my favourite TV characters of all time - fuck Kevin Arnold.

Re: Favorite TV Character Tourney: Round of 128/Group #2

1 - Kevin Arnold
3 - Barney Stinson
4 - Abstain - I'd probably go with Picard, but I'll let the Trek fans sort that one out. I don't watch it enough to really vote.
5 - Bender - Toughest vote yet for me. I can't even explain why Bender gets the edge. I guess today is just his today, tomorrow it may have been Al get it.
7 - Mr. Burns
8 - Malcolm Reynolds - Sorry Tony Shalhoub, but this one was easy.

No surprise that Al Bundy and MacGuyver are getting the most votes, but love for Bender? Damn.

Re: Favorite TV Character Tourney: Round of 128/Group #2

Matchup #1 #8 Larry David(Curb Your Entusiasm)
Matchup #2 #72 MacGyver(MacGyver)
Matchup #3 #25 Barney Stinson(How I Met Your Mother)
Matchup #4 #96 Jean-Luc Picard(Star Trek: The Next Generation)
Matchup #5 #120 Bender Bending Rodriguez(Futurama)
Matchup #6 #56 Michael Westin(Burn Notice)
Matchup #7 #24 Buffy(Buffy) -- it's hard to believe Buffy's getting beat by a minor Simpsons character
Matchup #8 #88 Adrian Monk(Monk)

There are a few I probably should have abstained from. I only voted for what show I like the most -- except matchup #5 in which I voted AGAINST Al Bundy -- I really hate Married with Children.

Re: Favorite TV Character Tourney: Round of 128/Group #2

This was my first matchup with some cointossers

Matchup #2: MacGyver(MacGyver)
Matchup #5: Bender Bending Rodriguez(Futurama)
Matchup #7: Buffy(Buffy)
Matchup #8: Malcolm Reynolds(Firefly)

Bender grew throughout the series (granted, only four seasons)....Al's personality changed in the later seasons of the show. Still, Bender just by a hair.

Re: Favorite TV Character Tourney: Round of 128/Group #2

Larry David vs. Kevin Arnold - I admit to not having seen Curb Your Enthusiasm, but I came of age alongside The Wonder Years. I may not have experienced the time period of the show, but I certainly related to Kevin.

Gil Grissom vs. MacGyver - Abstain; indifferent.

Barney Stinson vs. Lowell - Abstain. I always liked Lowell, but not enough to vote for him over a character from a show I've never watched.

Data vs. Jean-Luc Picard - Because the kind of answers Data gave Picard were not as meaningful as the kind of answers Picard gave to Data.

Al Bundy vs. Bender Bending Rodriguez - Can't stand Married...with Children, and Bender is good for at least a couple laughs per episode.

Michael Westen vs. Stringer Bell - Another instance of me violating my policy of not voting when unfamiliar with both options. This time, it's because I'm addicted to Burn Notice.

Buffy vs. Mr. Burns - Confession: I voted this way because I'd rather deal with Whedonites than Simpsons worshipers later. Although, in fairness, based on what I've seen of each series, I really do prefer the vampire slayer to the heartless one.

Malcolm Reynolds vs. Adrian Monk - Having OCD and being an observant detective just makes sense to me.
