2010 Character Competition - Round 2.6 - Day 14


I wrote the paragraph below when I went to bed, so for Fringe fans, unfortunately & for Smallville fans, brilliantly, Lois Lane pulled off a remarkable turnaround and beat Peter Bishop, so hats off to the fans, who now find themselves with a Clark vs. Lois Round 3. Personally as a Fringe fan, and viewing the competition as a neutral, I would've found Clark vs. Peter the most interesting Round 3 match, as I can't help but feel that Clark should definetely have an edge over his co-star. But more intruiging things have happened. :P I've left the paragraph below in as I'd mentioned a few other bits and bobs, so read at your pleasure :)

(It was a relatively quiet start to the second half of the draw in the second round of the competition yesterday, one which saw success for one Smallville character (Clark Kent) yet elimination for the other (Lois Lane). A very strong performance from Peter Bishop, perhaps exceeded his expected potential has scored him a place in Round 3 against Clark, and he surely now has a chance to take on the Man of Steel. It all remains to be seen. One ting is certain and that all the hopes for any NCIS success like it found in the show competition (it finished in 9th place) lie in the hands of Abby Sciuto. One thing I noticed is that one of the best show Semi-Finalist's and Quarter Finalists, The Wire & The Office had no characters in the to 64. Surely McNulty or Michael Scott merit a place in the draw. Perhaps next year we will lower the number of characters from each show to allow other shows the chance to fight for the win. But that's for another time, just a pause for thought :P)

Today we have 'Chuck', who pulled off a great victory against Greg House in Round One, certainly upsetting many peoples expectations, and as a result threw himself into contention for a strong performance today against '30 Rock's' Liz Lemon, who similarly made light work of Allison Cameron in Round One. Also we have the show that always pulls itself from underdog to front runner, 'The Vampire Diaries' Damon Salvatore, (Boone to everyone else :P) taking on 'Fringe' lead character Olivia Dunham. As a Fringe fan I'm behind the Dunham, but it will be tough to see off such stiff opposition. Can Vampire Diaries push on from Elena's win over Sam, the turnaround in Vampire vs. Demon fortunes from the Best Show final, and go one step further in this competition. Still a long way to go, and I'm sure Olivia won't make it easy. It's time to find out.....

Voting Time Folks...









In advance, the voting window is 24 hours, and I have set closing times for the poll, but if they do not work, or they aren't set at any point in the competition, the poll will close when I check the votes myself. This is not at all due to cheating, it's due to the fact that I will be busy and so please let's avoid the torrent of abuse that the infamous Smallville vs. The Vampire Diaries produced :P

Have fun guys, and any questions as always email me on:

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.
