    THE RULES!

    [li]Please remember that this tournament is for you to vote using your opinion? not that of anyone else. :) [/li]

    [li]This tournament is for your favourite TV show. The ONLY voting criteria should be that it is your favourite.[/li]

    [li]If you have never heard of one of the options PLEASE take 30 seconds to click on the link (it will take you to wikipedia) where you can find some sort of description.[/li]

    [li]This tournament will have a new vote APPROXIMATELY every 24 hours (except for the final rounds which will be extended additional days for maximum votes). You will be alerted that a new group is up to vote because the title will change. For example, on a Tuesday the title might be "Tournament: Favourite TV Show ? Comedy Region Round 1" and then on Wednesday it would be "Tournament: Favourite TV Show ? Drama Region Round 1". You cannot vote for a pair after the vote has been closed. I do forget and/or get detained occasionally, though, so be patient if there is some gaps in the updating. :) [/li]

    [li]To begin with, we'll be evening out the categories by only playing the section two sectins in each region in an opening round, since you guys requested a no-show-barred tournament. After that, 4-16 pairs of figures will be voted on for each round. This is done for time reasons. The later rounds will feature only one pair. Images will accompany voting pairs once we get past the initial rounds of 8 pairs.[/li]

    [li]To vote, all you need to do is look at the most recent vote announcement (one of my posts, and it will have a coloured bar each new round for easy visual recognition) and pick one figure from each pair. If you want to vote for one of the pairs but not the other, feel free to do so! But if you vote for anything other than what is up for the vote, your post will be ignored. [/li]

    [li]Please feel free to engage in some discussion, especially comments as to why you voted for what. This makes tournaments so much more interesting![/li]

    [li]If at any time you'd like to see who has been eliminated and who is still in the running, please check the 2nd post of this thread, where I will be highlighting in red all eliminated TV shows. Please note that the region names listed in this post and used throughout the tournament have no meaning behind them whatsoever. They are an identifier only.[/li]

    [li] As always, all the normal rules apply. If you are found to be breaking the JC rules in this thread you will receive a warning, and may be forbidden from participating in the tournament after that. No voting with socks! This has happened before. If you get caught, you will not be allowed to participate in the rest of the tournament. If you have any questions PLEASE PM me![/li]

    [li]Discussion on the nominations list has been ongoing over the past few days, but everybody seems satisfied with it. No changes will now be made, and you missed your chance to complain.[/li]

    And that is all! Enjoy. :D

    Gotta go for the old cult classic, dead before it's time.

    [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_from_the_Crypt_%28TV_series%29]Tales From the Crypt[/link]

    Wonder Showzen is awesome, certainly, but it's no match for the might of the Cryptkeeper, boils and ghouls.

    It's been on for a long time, so you gotta respect the longevity if nothing else.

    Never really watched either show, but I gotta give it up for Fry and Laurie, because I am sure that these with these two very talented Brits in front of the camera, this is a much better show than HH.
