Best Show Ever 2.4c - Battlestar Galactica vs. Chuck

Updated Brackets HERE


Day 16: Today is the final day of the Second Round of the Best Show Ever Competition, and we will be moving onto Round 3 very soon. However, depending on a few circumstances, I may be unable to post the first battle of Round 3 until Friday, as I am heading away for a few days, which I had hoped wouldn't stop the competition, but it is a remote area in Wales and I may not get enough connection to get on the internet, maybe none at all. However I will be back after my short break raring to continue with the competition, and I hope you all will be back too :) Anyhow, yesterday we saw Supernatural thrash Mad Men in a surprisingly one-sided encounter which sparked a few arguments in the comments over which truly deserved the place in Round 3, yet it seemed Supernatural had a dominant position throughout the day and Man Men never challenged. Supernatural is on my list of things to watch, and I intend to watch the top few shows of the competition that I haven't already seen once we're done with the competition, and see if I agree with the majority. I would wager Supernatural will be there, or thereabouts. But is it good enough to win. That remains to be seen. In the other post, we said goodbye to MASH, and although I'm disappointed to see something I often here as a TV classic lose to one of many police procedural type shows, I was happy it reached the second round, and also gave a decent fight, taking 309 votes. NCIS appears more popular than I expected, and could yet be a dark horse for the win.

Onto today, and we have here two frontrunners for the crown meeting in Round 2. Many of the Brackets I have seen have put the winner of this battle into the semi finals at the least, yet there was no clear winner over which it will be. Chuck was a clear winner in Round 1, whilst Battlestar ground out a win, albeit against the tougher opposition of CSI. It's tough to call, and with results so surprising at times, I wouldn't bet much more than a lump of cheese on this one. It's up to you! Also today we have another tough battle, as Alias takes on The X Files, seeing two huge fan bases and cult shows taking the fight to the other. Again, I can't call it, and I can't wait to see who wins. Regardless of whether I have ant access to the internet, I have asked a friend to write down the scores at 1:30/2:00am English time tomorrow morning so I have the winner for when I return. I wish you all luck for your favourites, and more than likely have a great few days whilst I tour the shores of Wales. Let the Battles Commence.

Battlestar Galactica vs. Chuck
Battlestar Galactica

Seasons: 4 (Finished)
Previous Results: R1. WON vs. CSI (63.75%)
Format: Post-apocalyptic fiction/Serial drama/Philosophical fiction/Military science fiction/Political drama/Space opera
Synopsis: The story arc of Battlestar Galactica is set in a distant part of the galaxy, where a civilization of humans live on a series of planets known as the Twelve Colonies. In the past, the Colonies had been at war with a cybernetic race known as the Cylons. With the unwitting help of a human named Gaius Baltar, the Cylons launch a sudden sneak attack on the Colonies, laying waste to the planets and devastating their populations. The approximately 50,000 human survivors flee into space aboard any spacecraft they can reach. Of all the Colonial Fleet, the Battlestar Galactica appears to be the only military capital ship that survived the attack. Under the leadership of Colonial Fleet officer Commander William "Bill" Adama, the Battlestar Galactica and its crew take up the task of leading the small fugitive fleet of survivors into space in search of a fabled refuge known as Earth.
Fan Review: Chris Bergi
BSG is basically a story about characters and their decisions in the fight for survival against an overwhelming, self-created enemy, the Cylons. But the Sci-Fi topic is just the setting for this drama, there's no annoying techno-babble or time-jumps.
The mini-series takes you on a journey to a different human society facing extinction due to their own creation, the robots called Cylons, coming home to kill their creators in a surprise attack. But a few dozen ships, led by the old military ship Battlestar Galactica and about 50.000 people are able to flee. On the run from the Cylons the last remains of the human race learn that there are Cylon agents among their fleet, looking and acting like humans. This creates a thrilling atmosphere; humanity will face controversial topics like torture, terrorism, faith, moral dilemmas, etc. and each character develops during their journey. You're a part of the crew, you will love and hate the characters for their decisions, and you will get entangled in the whole setting, its mysteries and be carried away.


Chuck

Seasons: 3 (Ongoing)
Previous Results: R1. WON vs. HIMYM (58.66%)
Format: Action-Comedy
Synopsis: The series is about an "average computer-whiz-next-door" who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend now working in the CIA; the message embeds the only remaining copy of the world's greatest spy secrets into Chuck's brain.
Fan Review: Lindsay
Though it's a show that most people have never heard of, Chuck has gained a passionate and well-deserved fanbase. It's devoted fans have brought the nearly cancelled show back for at least 2 extra seasons, something very rare in the all-about-ratings world of TV. It's a true "cult show", and it's obvious why. Described as a comedy, or sometimes dramedy, it can't truly be a part of any one genre. It's the perfect mix of comedy, drama, action, romance, and sci-fi, pulling it off in a way that not many shows can. The three-dimensional characters don't fit into stereotypes, and they and the show as a whole have undergone necessary changes in the last 3 seasons that will keep the show interesting for years to come. Maybe you already are a Chuck fan, but maybe you've never heard of it or have but think you won't like it. I guarantee that it's highly addicting, and if you give it a try you will most likely find it to be very entertaining and some of the best hours of your life.
