A duel between my top 2 shows. So it comes down to XF pissed me off in the end and Farscape never did. Although I didn't watch Farscape when it aired so I'm not sure how I would have felt if I saw the last ep of S4 when it originally aired. I would have probably been cursing up a storm. Fortunately when I saw it, the mini-series was a week or 2 away.

I know what you mean- I've seen most of seasons one through three and absolutly love the show (some of the best chemistry between two lead characters ever, me thinks), so I'm going to borrow them from my library this summer and watch it all.....eventually.;)

The X-Files


I love both shows. Watched The X-Files from the very beginning when it first premiered and stuck with the show to the bitter end. It faltered in its latter seasons but over-all it is still a great show. I didn't get into Farscape until the start of season 3 or somewhere in there. Excellent show even though it stumbled in season 4. Juvenile humor reared its ugly head more than I cared for. Not to say that previous seasons were devoid of it but for some reason it just really jumped out at you in S4. (Kind of the same way it did this season with SG-1. Or it did for me anyway.....).

I’m voting to save Farscape because the emotional journey of the characters was top notch. I thoroughly enjoyed all the characters. Plus I am a diehard John/Aeryn shipper. I hated when Mulder and Scully finally got together on the X-Files. The UST was nice but when the writers finally committed to it.... *bleh* Never really cared for that whole baby arc. And btw, I liked Robert Patrick as Dogget in those last two seasons. DD and his inflated ego can go stick it.

I'll do the Babylon 5 testimonial......

Almost got voted off 10 votes before and let's face it, it is not a mainstream show, so Babylon 5 : number 5 has a certain symmetry... Earlier this year, a buddy loaned me his B5 dvd set and I dug in. I had time on my hands and wanted to see why he thought it was so good. All I had seen to that point were cheesy special effects, guys with shock hair and a lot of loud studio acting, but I had only watched a few episodes and one of the movies.

After going through the whole series .. twice.. I came to the following conclusions about the show:

Best continuity and cohesive story telling over a 5 year period
Best depiction of fleet sized space combat and creative tactics
Least juvenile material: an adult series, no kids, little goofiness
Most quotable: Some truly GREAT speeches and memorable concepts
Scariest Aliens and Best ALien ships: Shadows
Best depiction of a mature relationship (start to finish): Delenn/Sheridan
Most satisfying ending of the ones I have seen (still working on DS9)
Best Alien comedy and drama team: Londo and G'Kar
Best character growth, changes and consequences ... to many characters
Most literate writing

I could go on. For modern viewers, the weak special effects, the relative lack of cheesecake and beefcake, the lack of any credible outdoor scenes and the slow start and weak beginning of season 5 keep it from being the best of the best, but just as I have promised myself to see Farscape and Buffy, I would hope that others will give B5 a try....

This is hard :(
I like Babylon 5, but at the time I watched it, I wasn't into analysing every bits & facts of a TV show, I was more on the "enjoying" a show part, same as Star Trek TNG, DS9, Highlander and the other SciFi.
But Buffy TVS, Angel, Firefly, Farscape, BSG TNS & Stargates are different, I enjoy them to the fandom level, I enjoy discussing them, the reason/science behind the scenes, the actors reaction/comments, the director/writers explanation, and it's really hard to vote for them.
I'm really happy to see the top-4 are those that I like, of all those, I like Farscape the least, I've only seen upto season 3 and as much as I like Aeryn/John saga, I kept yawning most of the time because of the convoluted storylines per episode and sometimes they just talk too damn much :(
Firefly is superb, but it's only 1 season and it really can't compare to BTVS/SG-1 with story/characters development, so with lots of regret I have to put it there.
Between BTVS/SG-1, *sigh* we have 7 seasons of BTVS & 9 seasons of SG-1 (so far), I don't like S4 & S6 of BTVS and I don't like S8 & S9 of SG-1, but I'm still checking Gateworld everyday for hours and I don't even join any Buffy's forum, so you know what I choose at the end of the day ;)

OK, so 3 of my 4 faves are left, and it's very hard to pick. 2 Great shows, one potentially great show ... I'm afraid i'm gonna have to go for a Stargate win (although it's very very close) - it's the only show that has ever got me interested enough to join in its on-line fandom. It still entertains me, despite going downhill a lot. If you were to compare these last three seasons with the other two shows, i'd not vote for it. But as a whole, and the fact that it still has potential to grow further, if TPTB buck up their ideas, my personal fave is Stargate. It's just that little bit more relaxing as a whole - less dark.

Reluctantly, i vote for:

Firefly
Buffy

I don't really understand how Buffy is still in this. Add up the total number of vote off votes to this point and compare it to the total vote off votes for SG-1.......

By the time Stargate SG-1 had ONE vote against it, Buffy had 83 votes against and had been in a tiebreaker which it won by ONE vote. Before the start of this round, total votes against Buffy=128, total against Stargate SG-1=13. Now folks do drop out and I know other folks manipulate the voting, voting against shows in groups to get rid of them because they don't want to face them in the final round...

Gee, I guess this is more like Survivor than I thought......

Exactly! It's not my 1st (or even 2nd) choice but it's better than the other 2. My biggest problem with Buffy is..well..Buffy. I liked alot of the side characters, but how do you watch a show when you don't like the main character.

Yeah, I had that problem with Angel. Still watched it, for the totally brilliant writing and for the two or three characters I did like, but it doesn't make my top ten because I don't like Angel himself all that much.

Buffy is GONE :(

IMO this is 10000000 times better than SG1, the characters developed much more, and so did the story style. Most of all, it had that magical touch that SG1 has almost never had (there are a few eps that do, ie. WoO, Meridian) where we get to see what the characters are truly about. More than anything, Buffy, with the exception of S6 which was the result of a new network calling the shots, was true to itself, keeping the same ideals throughout, and the constant metaphores of growing up etc. Most notably Willows abuse of magic represented drug abuse far more realistically than SG-1's "Need", while the Angelus storyline showed how people can suddenly change in an instant better than Sha're and Skara becomeing hosts.

Stargate SG1 vs Firefly

(this is kinda redundant seeing as SG1 was always likely to win this, so had it not been involved from the offset, Firefly would be the winner)

But i think this tourny shows just how big a booboo the network made when it dumped Firefly. It was potentially a great show - with the possibilty of rivalling Lost and SG-1 (my favourite two from the list), and i'm so grateful they at least managed to get the film, Serenity in there.

Stargate SG-1 to WIN

Sorry Ptah, but while Buffy had alot of good elements, it just didn't have that extra something that made in as special to me as it did to others. Plus as I said before it had Buffy, and I just couldn't get past her enough to watch the show on a regular basis.

I'm voting for Stargate on the basis of the 1st 4 seasons, which is more than 1 season of Firefly, which while a little above average show is nowhere near best.

FINAL ROUND (24)

Firefly to go

Stargate SG-1 to WIN

Like everybody said, Firefly has every potential to be a good show had it ran more than 1 season, as it is, it was a good season. But SG-1 has 7 good seasons (IMO), it just can't be compared.

To WIN.......Firefly!


I totally agree with you Ptah about Buffy. It touched upon so many life lessons that people could relate to. I liked all the characters....well with the exception of Dawn. I usually wanted to slap that one because of her incessant whining and pouting. :D I just love Buffy. Brilliant show, imo. :)

My choice to win this would have been between Buffy, Farscape, and B5. It would have been quite difficult to have to picked on over the others, but voters here saved me the pain of having to decide. My next tier of shows would have included BSG, Firefly, and SG-1.

As much as I enjoy Stargate, its writing and its character & plot development are nowhere near the caliber some of the other shows nominated here. It's a great show, but definitely not the best. Of course, it's all subjective, I suppose.

Results

Firefly - 16
Stargate SG1 - 11

That means that the winner is:

ALIEN NATION!
(couldnt resist:p)
Stargate SG-1

I've done my speaches for both shows so I wont bother repeating them. Hope you all enjoyed, and I'll be starting a new tourny pretty soon (I've already chosen what it is)

*Yawn* Sooo predictable. ;) When I first looked at the scores, I thought Firefly had won it. :S :P

Great tourney though. Thanks again Ptah. :D The highlight for me was the big discussion midway through the competition.

I'm looking forward to the next one. Hopefully it won't include the Stargates so the voting will be a bit less biased.

It was kind of inevitable wasn't it ;) You know, being on a Stargate forum and all ;)

Thanks Ptah for the great tourny :D Can't wait for the next one
I especially like the process of giving praise and tribute to each show as it was voted off. Very nice :)

THANKS FOR THE TOURNEY PTAH!

The theme music is a bit difficult since I don't really remember each music score, unless you attach a link to google-video or something.
Well.. as long as you announce the new tourney here, I will join it. :)

Now - as a musician myself, I LOVE that idea.

Of course - where possible it eould be good to provide links to online recordings of the music...

Darn....missed the final voting round. And I'd decided I was going to go for Firefly (for the win) over SG-1. Guess it wouldn't have mattered, SG-1 kind of had it in the bag.

My personal "top 5":

BSG
B5
Farscape
Sg-1 or Firefly (depending on my mood)
ST: TOS

Fun tournament! Thanks for running it....:)

I'll give my top five :)


1) BSG!
2) SG-1
3) Firefly (SG-1 and Firefly alternate depending on the day)
4) ST:TNG (interchangeable with other Trek series)
5) X-Files

Thunderstorm

Well it was an interesting tourney. Learned alot about other shows. If B5 ever makes it to local tv syndication, I'll give it another try. Or someone can be very generous and buy the dvds for me :)

My top shows (not necessarily in order)

Farscape
XF (S1-7)
Sliders (s1-3)
Stargate (s1-4, and 5, 7 if I'm being generous)

Since everyone's posting their personal preferences, I might as well join in:

1. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
2. Babylon 5
3. Star Trek: The Next Generation
4. Farscape
5. Battlestar Galactica: TNS - I'm a recent convert. :)

The Stargates don't quite make my top 5. If SG-1 had finished at the end of season 7, then yeah, it probably would've been in the top 5.

6. Firefly
7. Stargate SG-1
8. Stargate Atlantis

Honourable mentions go to ST: TOS, ST: Voyager, Quantum Leap, X Files, Space: Above and Beyond and Lexx - Very obscure and not for everyone, but I loved it.

LOL! I have a lot of favourites. I'm really just a fan of anything sci-fi.

Lexx - Very obscure and not for everyone, but I loved it.
I think I've seen most of the episodes for this show. Very Very Weird. But oddly compelling. I don't think I would put it on any favorite list. They were some very good arcs and some I didn't like. However, I would recommend people try it to see something very different and you might just get hooked.

Missster.Freeman
May 25th, 2006, 03:56 PM
^Indeed. Lexx was very weird. Seasons 1 and 3 were my favourites. It was a fitting finale at the end of season 4, rounded the series off well. I would recommend it to people who are looking for something to watch that's different from the norm.


:jack_new_anime07: :weiranime17:
Yup Trek_Girl, it has me hooked. I'd seen the mini-series, but it took me a while to get a hold of the first season.

Hey Ptah, where's your mention of BSG: TNS? :P I'll let you off seeing as I forgot to mention Dr Who. :S
