Day 31: The month is at an end. The final poll for the Best Show Competition (for this year at least) is here, and it's not the final I had expected, but I am looking forward to it nonetheless. I will say a few words tomorrow in my final post about the competition tomorrow once the winner is crowned, so I will keep it short tonight, but I am hugely proud of what your efforts have meant to me, as I decided to do this for the people who love TV as much as me, and to have 14,480 people voting in the LOST vs. Supernatural Battle yesterday is staggering to me. As we saw the other day, here is the map of where was voting in yesterdays poll:
But I will say more in my wrap-up post on the competition as a whole, and as we say goodbye to LOST and The Wire, our losing Semi-Finalists, we can turn our attention to The Vampire Diaries taking on Supernatural in a battle for the title. Based on today's efforts I would guess Supernatural is the favourite, but The Vampire Diaries has shocked on many a round so far, and so it will come down to which fan-base wants it more. The Vampires vs. The Demons (I think that's Supernatural :P)
And so for the Final Time, I announce Let The Battle Begin....

Fan Review: Wilson Crawford
What started off as a seemingly fun, scary monster-of-the week show in the beginning quickly revealed itself to be one of the most well-written, fantastically-plotted, genre shows of the past decade. The core of Supernatural was, is, and will always be the brothers Winchester. Cursed by the demonic murder of their mother at a young age, the remnants of the Winchester family fell into a world of darkness. They were raised by their father to hunt the evil that preys on humanity, and ultimately to rid creation of the demon that killed their mother. Supernatural has one of the most incredible teams of writers I've ever seen: they can take the apocalypse and reduce it to two bratty forces of heaven having a tantrum, and then take a few misguided granted wishes and turn them into imminent danger. The action is well-laid out, the humor is crude, satirical, and sharp, and the twists in this show are some of the most insane, thought-out twists you'll ever see in television. Like I stated previously, however, the heart of this show lies on the brothers, and this show is not only a wonderful buildup of mythos, but the character development is out of this world. I can't speak enough on the evolution, the trials, and the strength of the commitment these two brothers have for each other. There's a reason it's called the "hellatus" between seasons...and That is why Supernatural is the BEST SHOW EVER.
(I had a lot of video submissions, so sorry if I haven't picked yours. I haven't seen the show so I tend to go with which one grabs me within the first 30 seconds)
