Day 29: Wow. What a day it was. The biggest day of the competition so far. And by a long shot. The X-Files fan's can be incredibly proud in defeat, on a day where all records were broken, and Supernatural has once again proven that it is now the favourite for the SpoilerTV Best Show Ever 2010 title.
Dark emailed me earlier with a really cool image to show how big yesterday was in terms of the tie. In his words this is "This is a map of all the people voting on the X-Files/Supernatural at it's height earlier."
We also had a whopping 205 tweets, over 400 comments and tons of reactions and links worldwide. I'm proud of yesterday, and I feel we still have more to come. One thing is for certain as I haven't seen Supernatural myself before, but I intend on digging out a box-set from Amazon's shelves and giving it a try. It will face LOST in what I now see as the big tie of the competition. LOST vs. Supernatural. What a day that will be. But today is the first Semi-Final, and it is The Wire, critically loved and acclaimed taking on the controversial Semi-Finalist in The Vampire Diaries. Many feel strongly that The Vampire Diaries has no place so far in the competition, and in fairness I see their angle, but it is up to both sides to prove the other wrong and claim the first ever show to reach a SpoilerTV Best Show Ever Final. We have two spots, one will be decided today. What else, but time to Let the Battle Commence...

Synopsis: Each season of The Wire focuses on a different facet of the city of Baltimore. They are, in order: the illegal drug trade, the port system, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system, and the print news media. The large cast consists mainly of character actors who are little known for their other roles. Simon has said that despite its presentation as a crime drama, the show is "really about the American city, and about how we live together. It's about how institutions have an effect on individuals, and how whether you're a cop, a longshoreman, a drug dealer, a politician, a judge or a lawyer, you are ultimately compromised and must contend with whatever institution you've committed to."

(Update - 2:38BST: I have just been onto my Twitter and found a few offensive retweets over the Smallville/Vampire Diaries poll. Being honest, I don't feel this is acceptable, as I do this for the fun of people who visit the website. I sorted the issue the fairest way I could given the circumstances, and I hope stuff like this doesn't happen again.)

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.
