    I just went through the polls but I only got to vote in one because I never watched any of the shows in the other ones. Even in the poll I voted in I only watched one of the shows.

    I guess this is a good opportunity then for you to discover some great series. They were all nominated for a reason. And that's why I've added a video of each and linked the titles to Wikipedia, for those that haven't seen them or had forgotten.

    Pablo / Iwritecode - For sure. I really think, that based on the choices here, we have a veritable history of good television listed. While I don't always agree with every choice - I can see why they were included and how they appeal. We have a great spectrum of shows in the polls. Bravo to our members.

    Also, the breakdown of the polls by decade - a great idea. You can really see how television has evolved here in the US.

    But don't forget, there are several British series nominated as well.

    I'm enjoying the ride more than looking forward to the end, anyway. It is plain to me that the Lost fans can overwhelm the rest of us any time (with the possible exception of the Dr. Who contingent). If we're just out to determine what tdt.org members already know and love, I'm not sure that so much effort is really needed.

    If you're saying that Lost winning it all in the end is a foregone conclusion, I'm not so sure. There are plenty of quality series in the 2000s to challenge Lost for it to even make it out of the Decade Final.

    I agree when I look at the nominations list... but when I look at the members list, I get dubious again.

    You know, even when I nominated a couple of my favourite UK shows, I would've agreed with this statement Lisa, I just thought that they deserved to be nominated, at least. Boy, am I glad how we're both wrong: have you seen how well Life on Mars is doing against much loved US comedy Arrested Development?!? Even if it loses, it still shows that there's a lot more love for truly great UK shows on this board than we think! That's one thing I've learned from the tournament so far. It'll be interesting to see what else it'll reveal about opinions on so many great shows.

    I wouldn't be so certain. I think The Twilight Zone has a very good chance of winning it all.

    I really wanted to nominate it, but I think me and you are the only two on the board that love that show. And I just didn't want to see it die an early death.
    Only the gentle are ever really strong.

    I've been thinking, as the tournament has gone on, that lots of very good series have not been nominated. I could name at least a dozen without giving it much thought. So I figured it could be fun to add another dimension to our tournament by introducing a "challenger" series. Now this is just an idea so feel free to tell me I'm crazy and we'll forget I even mentioned it. Seeing as how there were 160 series nominated overall for the tournament, I thought we could come up with another 40 to make an even 200. These other series, however, will not be restricted to decades and the show that emerges victorious takes on the winner of the main tournament as a challenger to test its claim as the best television series of all time. This challenger tournament would begin after the main tournament is done with, of course, perhaps a bit afterward maybe, and it would follow the same basic principle we've been using so far.

    So, thoughts. Yay or nay?

    It's funny; what I've been experiencing is regularly thinking about lousy shows that I'm glad to realize were not nominated.

    I could probably come up with a handful of clunkers that I actually liked but nobody else wants to remember. Maybe if we make the nominations but they must be seconded (maybe thirded? is that even a word?) to make the cut.

    I like the idea of a challenger series.
    Not sure I will venture a nomination, but I'm enjoying the voting process anyway. Talk about expanding my horizons

    By the way, Bracket 12 is going up tomorrow and that will do for the 1950s through the 1980s. Brackets 13 through 16 of the 1990s and the 2000s will be up on Monday, and the next Monday Round 2 will begin.
