Best Show Ever Round 1.1c - Firefly vs. 24 & Legend of the Seeker vs. Fringe

This Poll is now Closed.
Update: 07:55 The Brackets have been updated. How are your predictions looking?

Bracket Results

Congratulations to 'Arrested Development', 'The Office', 'Veronica Mars' & 'Glee' for making it through to the second round of the competition. I was surprised that 'Sex & the City' gained so few votes, but like 'The Prisoner', perhaps some fans have moved onto newer things. Also intriguing was the fact that two of the polls had over 1000 votes, whereas the others only had around 700/800. A possible hint at certain shows having bigger fanbases maybe?
For all those who have entered the competition, once the results are updated, you can check out how you are doing here: http://www.dawgsled.com/darkufo/welcome.asp
Anyhow....
Today, the second day of the competition we have in this post Firefly vs. 24, and also Legend of the Seeker vs. Fringe. I'm very intrigued to see the results of the second poll, as I have no idea which way to call it. It's gonna be interesting to say the least.
Also today we have Its always Sunny in Philidelphia taking on The Wire, and The Mentalist's battle with Buffy. To view that post and vote, head here: http://www.spoilertv.com/2010/06/best-show-ever-round-11d-sunny-in-phili.html

Firefly vs. 24
Firefly

Seasons: 1 (Finished)
Format: Space Western/Drama
Synopsis: The series is set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system, and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of Serenity, a "Firefly-class" spaceship. The ensemble cast portrays the nine characters who live on Serenity. Whedon pitched the show as "nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things".[2] The show explores the lives of people who fought on the losing side of a civil war who now make a living on the outskirts of the society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system. In addition, it is a future where the only two surviving superpowers, the United States and China, fused to form the central federal government, called the Alliance, resulting in the fusion of the two cultures as well. According to Whedon's vision, "nothing will change in the future: technology will advance, but we will still have the same political, moral, and ethical problems as today."

It's just the twists, action, intricate storylines, and acting that are amazing really.

User Reviews: Carol Holt
I love Legend of the Seeker because it is loaded with action, magic and romance, it has movie quality special effects and is visually beautiful - both the scenery and the cast. I love the strong women's roles and the lessons in loyalty and love.
I just happened to catch an episode on a Saturday afternoon during season 1 and was "hooked" immediately! I am sure with a consistent time slot and proper publicity this show would be a huge hit. There is a market for the fantasy genre. Not everyone likes the so-called "reality" shows. Legend of the Seeker is absolutely the ONLY show I schedule my time around, it is the only "must see" program on TV for me. I won't even answer my phone when it is on.
Fringe

Seasons: 2 (Ongoing)
Format: Science Fiction/Thriller/Horror/Drama
Synopsis: The series follows a Federal Bureau of Investigation "Fringe Division" team based in Boston, Massachusetts under the supervision of Homeland Security. The team uses unorthodox "fringe" science and FBI investigative techniques to investigate "the Pattern", a series of unexplained, often ghastly occurrences that are happening all over the world. The show has been described as a hybrid of The X-Files, Altered States, The Twilight Zone, and Dark Angel.

Fringe is one of the few shows I can think of that actually succeeds in achieving a balance between the various story elements. It has a little bit of everything: drama, suspense, emotion, humour, science fiction, character development… you name it. In a word, Fringe is brilliant. The stories are intriguing and engaging, the acting is top of the line, the characters are people you can relate to, and the quality of each episode is simply amazing. It’s a show that makes you think, without getting too complicated or overwhelmed in its own story and it provides real answers in a timely manner. For those who love to dissect every episode and analyze all the clues and themes, there is more than enough to keep you busy. On the other hand, those who simply want to watch the show from week to week without thinking about it in between can do that and still enjoy it and be entertained. Fringe is as good as it gets. If you have ever wondered if you should watch Fringe, I would highly recommend it because, odds are, you’ll love it and will wonder why it took you so long to start watching.

Thanks again for taking part, and feel free to comment, argue, whatever you fancy.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
