The latest results are undeniably the most shocking so far in the competition. The runner of two years ago, The Vampire Diaries, has been eliminated at the first hurdle. Doctor Who and The Vampire Diaries both had a mega amount of votes in a poll which managed to get both fan bases voting en-masse, but Vampire Diaries fell just short. It's worth noting that The Vampire Diaries lost with more the second most votes of the competition so far. It had almost double the amount of votes of our second most popular poll. Also in a quieter poll Alias saw off the challenge of Six Feet Under in a comfortable fashion.
Today sees Castle make its mark in the competition, and after under performing last year is many peoples favourite to reach the later staged. To do so it first must beat the recently finished Desperate Housewives.
Also today we have a mega-clash with two of the biggest TV shows of the past twenty years going head to head. The X-Files stands in one corner, Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the other. Only one can progress. Which one I can not call!
