Day 3: So congratulations to Firefly, Fringe, The Wire & The Mentalist for making it through to the next round. So harsh on both Legend of the Seeker and 24, which had huge amounts of votes and both would have smashed any other showdown we have already had results for, yet they came up against too tough shows in Firefly & Fringe. Watch out for these two shows in the upcoming Rounds. Also surprising was the lack of support for The Wire, which despite an east victory, only managed 376 votes, compare this with 24's 1499 votes, and you can see it's going to potentially find it tough in later rounds.

For all those who have entered the competition, once the results are updated, you can check out how you are doing here: Updated Brackets

And so today's round here sees two very current, and very popular shows going head to head in Dexter vs. Bones, as well as a showdown for Charmed against The Gilmore Girls. Also today in the other post, we have The Sopranos vs. Smallville and Breaking Bad vs. Stargate SG1. If you would like to vote in either head here: Best Show Ever Round 1.2b

Dexter vs. Bones
Dexter

Seasons: 4 (ongoing)

Fan Review: None Submitted


Bones

Seasons: 5 (ongoing)
Format: Police Procedural/Drama
Synopsis: The show is based on forensic anthropology, with each episode focusing on an FBI case file concerning the mystery behind human remains brought by FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth to the forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan. Emily Deschanel stars in the title role, along with David Boreanaz as Special Agent Seeley Booth.
Fan Review: Alyssa
This show brings new light to forensic anthropology and character development. In one hour not only do you learn a thing or two about the human body, but you also get the experience to grow with all the unique and hilarious characters. Though the "partners falling in love" spiel might be overrated, Bones knows how to use the relationship to their advantage, and provides the fans with an awkward, comedic, mysterious, and romantic show that leaves you stunned and wanting more.

Charmed vs. Gilmore Girls
Charmed

Seasons: 8 (Finished)
Format: Dramedy/Fantasy/Action/Horror
Synopsis: The series narrative follows the four Halliwell sisters — Prue, Piper, Phoebe and, later, Paige. They are the culmination of the most powerful line of good witches in history. The sisters, despite being perceived as normal women by the non-supernatural community, are known as The Charmed Ones in the magical community, whose prophesied destiny is to protect innocent lives against evil beings, such as demons and warlocks. Each sister possesses unique magical powers that grow and evolve, while they attempt to hold normal working lives in San Francisco. Keeping their paranormal identities separate and secret from their ordinary lives forms part of the series' tension and challenges, with the exposure of magic having far-reaching consequences on relationships, and having resulted in a number of police and FBI investigations throughout the series.
Fan Review: None Submitted


Gilmore Girls

Seasons: 7 (Finished)
Format: Comedy-Drama
Synopsis: The show follows single mother Lorelai Victoria Gilmore (Graham) and her daughter Lorelai "Rory" Leigh Gilmore (Bledel) in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, a close-knit New England town (based on Washington Depot, Connecticut) with many quirky characters, located roughly thirty minutes from Hartford, Connecticut. The series explores family, friendship, generational divides, and social class. Gilmore Girls features frequent popular culture and political references and social commentary that manifest most clearly in Lorelai's difficult relationship with her wealthy upper-class parents.
Fan Review: Water Bug
Anyone who understands the appeal of small town life will be able to relate to Gilmore Girls. Set in fictional Stars Hollow Connecticut, the show's action and characters often mimic what is best about the little burg: charm and quirkiness. The main characters epitomize the notions of confidence and embracing one's self, and the secondary characters are the very definition of eccentricity. As to the story, any number of unlikely and amusing events influence the characters to deal with issues of familial relationships and being part of a community. The show is relatable, as well. Most people can understand the need to find a place to belong that was ultimately the driving force leading to the situation that the characters are in at the beginning of the show. Throughout the course of its seven seasons, Gilmore Girls dealt with similarily identifiable incidents of disapproving parents, growing up, developing one's identity, tricky relationships, and risky life ventures. Of course, the show never seemed to take itself too seriously and almost always had an unconventional side-story or two. And that's all without mentioning the shows quick-witted, fast-talking, pop culture reference riddled discourse!

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.
