The final eight have been decided. The battle for the "Third STV Series Competition" is heating up. With yesterdays results we have Game of Thrones, Fringe, The Mentalist, NCIS, Supernatural, Once Upon A Time, Castle and LOST left. Only one can emerge a winner. Can any of the shows in question deny Supernatural the hat trick of wins? We're close to finding out.
We begin with potentially the hottest battle of the Quarter Final stage, with HBO's epic Game of Thrones taking on FOX's sci-fi twist of a show in Fringe. With Fringe drawing to a close this Winter it perhaps stands its best chance of victory this time around before the sands of time commit it to the TV history booklets. Of all the 32 finished shows that made the competition only LOST remains, so for Fringe you feel this could be its final hurrah. As for Game of Thrones, the show which goes from strength to strength, this is the second of what is sure to be many opportunities to succeed, but the fans of the sprawling drama would love to pick up victory after only its second season.
Firstly they both must meet, and it's going to be one hell of a battle...
