    I'm astonished. I've never seen so much Roslin hate. In fact, I didn't know that anyone disapproved of the character at all. She and Zarek have always been my favorites, and everyone else I've ever talked to has given her a thumbs-up.


    Nice to see Cowboy Bebop get some recognition. Of course, how much recognition that's worth depends on how far Spike and Vicious go in the brackets.

    malkie edit no need to use that phrase!

    (or whatever system you used to determine the brackets) Absolute heresy it is putting Starbuck and Magneto against each other in round 1 (hehe...while Starbuck and hehe get red-flagged by my auto-spell-checker, Magneto doesn't. Funny that he's famous enough or popular enough to get an inclusion in a spelling program.

    Interesting round. I wonder how Optimus Prime will do - he's a champion in a different tournament that was around in the past.

    Well...OK, yeah. I can't argue that. But she was pretty fine...in the first five seasons, anyway. I mean, Season Six, in a whole lot of ways, was when it really started to go downhill. And don't even get me started on how bad the show go after "Seeing Red."

    I thought Magneto would roll in that one;
    surprised to see Worf get through (even though I voted for him)

    Oh man. I didn't realize this thread got stickied, so I missed a lot of rounds. Some real disappointments there, too.

    I liked it better unstickied, honestly. That way I knew when there was a reason to look, because it would be near the top; this forum moves slowly enough that it wouldn't be that easy for it to get totally buried.
