I had to cast a vote for Chloe from 24. Gave her extra credit for being a character I could hardly stand during her initial appearances, only to progress into one my favorites as I chuckled at her personality quirks.

Wow, the scores reflect that. Seven matchups are very close so far which is rare.

Re: Favorite TV Character Tourney: Round of 128/Group #8

1 - Zack Morris
2 - Abstain - I don't like either show even remotely so it doesn't matter to me who wins.
3 - Spock - I'm not a huge Trek fan, but there's no way Spock should lose to a guy from Lost.
4 - Gareth - He'll probably lose, but I gotta go with him anyway. I never did like Buffy.
5 - JD
6 - Abstain - I haven't watched enough of the show to decide. I'll let the fans settle that one.
7 - Charlie Kelly - Very tough pick. I love both.
8 - Norm Peterson - Also tough. Really both should advance, but when they get matched up someone's gotta go home.

I think the Fonz should be pre-barrel jump. Everything after that he was a tool.

Actually that's what gave Norm the edge for me. The Fonz turned into such a caricature of himself by the end, he became a joke more than a character.

Not that Norm was ever particularly deep, but still.

Re: Favorite TV Character Tourney: Round of 128/Group #8

It's too bad not as many people have seen Always Sunny as Futurama. Charlie is a clear winner over Zoidberg. Charlie was one of my top 10 in the original thread. Oh well!

At least the Arrested Development matchup wasn't Tobias vs. Gob. Tobias is a no-brainer there too.

Of course, everything is IMHO

+1

For as much crap the Whedonites get around here, it's the Groeningites who apparently run amok.

Re: Favorite TV Character Tourney: Round of 128/Group #8

Matchup #1: Zack
Matchup #2: Sam -- BTW, this is not a vote against Chloe. I've never understood all the hatred of her.
Matchup #3: Mr. Eko -- more of a pity vote in support of one my fav LOST characters. And, I'm sure that Spock (the obvious winner) can spare 1 vote.
Matchup #4: Spike
Matchup #5: J.D.
Matchup #6: Tobias
Matchup #7: Zoidberg -- And yes, I've seen every ep. of Always Sunny
Matchup #8: Norm!

Still a couple of days left to get your votes in for this one. There are couple of matchups that could still change.

Whoa Norm was winning for the longest time but there's been a huge swing since the last time I checked.

Yes, but it was unfortunately predictable.
