2014 Character Cup - 1G
Congratulations to Tyrion Lannister, Cristina Yang, Walter White, and Damon Salvatore for advancing to round 2. Nothing was even very close this time. Today's polls contain a fun mix of very popular and smaller shows, network and cable, and US vs British productions. It should be interesting to see which characters emerge victorious. Except for one poll which should be a blowout, this may play havoc on people's brackets. Thanks as always for the great TV discussion. If you have something you'd like to address as the TV Talk topic, let me know. Until then, keep the conversation flowing, play nice, and happy voting!
Previous contest results
Polls end - Sunday around 4:30 pm CST

TV Talk Topic - Today it is all about new characters. Thanks Emma for the suggestion. How do you feel when a new major character comes into shows that have been on the air for a long time? Who is your favorite new character in a recurring show from last season or this summer? Who is your least favorite? Has a new character coming on ruined a show for you? Made it better? How do you feel when a new character replaces a character that has been killed off or left the show? How would you prefer shows handle a character leaving? Have you ever watched a show that kept the same character but changed actors? What is the best way to ease a new character into an established show? What was the strangest way a new character was introduced? What was the worst way?
