Welcome back to round 4 of the 2015 Character Cup. Round 3 went off with mostly a whimper compared to previous rounds although the poll between Peggy Carter and Tyrion Lannister stayed close for much of the time. Heading into today's round includes Jamie Fraser, Mickey Milkovich, Buffy Summers, and Peggy Carter. Also included is the mini TV Vehicle competition. Since there were so many nominations (almost 500), I ended up breaking it into two parts - current shows and ended shows. It will work just like the Character Cup in that you will have about 24 hours to vote and the one with the most votes moves to the next round. This is the first time we're trying a contest within a contest so pardon me as I work out the kinks. Also, to see the current round in the embedded brackets at the end, scroll all the way down and then you should have the ability to slide the screen over. Questions? Comment below. Without any further ado, happy voting!
Prediction Cup Update - For the third day in a row, Perrin is leading our Prediction Contest. Nice job! Wired Wizard (second) and DarkUFO (third) have switched spots though. Congrats to all three of you on your great predicting.

Today's TV Talk Topic:
A big thanks to Emma and Pam who inspired this TV Talk Topic. I really appreciate it.
TV Crews - We focus a lot on the actors of a TV show but it's the crew that put it all together and they rarely get recognized. Today the spotlight goes on them. Who are your favorite directors? Which shows have the best stunt coordination? Whose music makes the story come to life? Which TV sets or locations inspire you? Who has the best costuming? What special effects have astounded you? Which show's title sequence is amazing? What other crews make your favorite shows stand out?
This is just an experimental contest to see if people like the idea. I haven't done a contest-within-a-contest before so it may work well or it may not. We'll revisit it on Thursday to see if people like it or not. Basically the rules are the same as the Character Cup in that it's 1 vote per IP, about 24 hours to vote, and winner moves on. On Thursday, we will crown the winners as Best TV Vehicle, either past or current. There will not be a run-off between them because we won't have time. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments below.
