There will be blood...

Level 12

That is it folks, the Mischievous round is done. Once again, I am personally devastated that the Doctor Who representatives (The Master and the Daleks) did not make it beyond the first round. Thanks to those (looking in your direction sqlrockstar and @emoore@empireiron.com) for keeping the dream alive. Perhaps, we will take this as a powerful message. Next year, no Doctor Who. Humpf.

Who else avoided a first round elimination? Our official results will post shortly, but here is a recap of some of the most popular and hotly contested match ups. 

  • We thought that this match up would be closer by far, but the power of the Dark Side and a choke hold were too much for Voldemort's weak geek cred
  • Bahlkris‌ thinks these two are a winning sitcom combination (dark sense of humor, indeed)... the pilot episode could be a rematch to determine who gets the bigger bedroom. In the meantime, this round goes to Khan over Hannibal
  • And Skeletor's Cinderella story continues, with a complete trouncing of Jaws.

So, we have a new set of match-ups, likely more random than before.

Voting in the Rotten round starts around 10 am CT today. We still need your help to determine the most infamous of the baddies.

This was a fun round; looking forward to the next! I also thought that Darth Vader/Voldemort would be much closer, though I did expect Vader to win.

I am not a bracket nerd, cause...I don't get it. But some of these match ups were hilarious.

Strange thought maybe the daleks would have advanced.  Oh well, looking forward to the next round!!!!

I would have thought so, too. I thought that was a pretty easy call.

I agree with your comment in another thread though... it's lucky you didn't include the Weeping Angels as you may as well call it there!

This is a fun one.  We need to clarify it...  Who would win? or Who do you like?

it's really such a pitty that DW universe is no longer on the vote.

ok, Missy is nice (though crazy) and Simm was cute, but DALEKS! How could anyone choose cylons over daleks!

I think everyone needs to do some homework and watch every episode of Doctor Who (At least the reboot) and for extra credit watch Torchwood, then next year you'll be better equipped to vote. (No bias )

Believe it or not, I've never seen Doctor Who.  However, after so many posts and accolades, now I am curious.  So, I will watch a few episodes this weekend and see where I go from there.

PS:  Sorry, emoore@empireiron.com‌, I can't commit to watch every episode.  I fear my eyeballs will fall off my face!!!

Start with the Blink episode (Season 3, episode 10)... its a great hook.

I had to ponder the episodes a bit, but I concur on the recommendation
