    Lucille Bluth. Any character from Arrested Development deserves to win their bracket

    Definitely!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,468 ✭✭✭Ectoplasm


    Lucille Bluth for her sheer determination to drink at every occasion


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Nick Miller is my spirit animal, so that was a tough match for me to watch as I was more invested in it than the previous matches, but I suspected Lucille Bluth would come out the victor and the deserving victor of Match 4 she is...

    Match 5

    Can the heart of the underrated cult sitcom Happy Endings pull out a win here or does Everybody Love Raymond...

    Penny Hartz (Happy Endings)

    Urgh, never saw Happy Endings but I can't stand Ray. Abstain, I guess.

    I'll accept it as a valid reason... :D

    I dont watch either.

    But I like the look of Penny Hartz........ Top.

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!

    I'll take that as a vote for Penny than shall I? :D

    Highly recommend Happy Endings by the way, it's a fantastic show.

    My hope is a few people will discover some new shows through this competition anyway. That'd make it all worthwhile! :D

    Penny Hartz
    Best character from an underrated and very funny show

    How far back to these shows go? Like are there any for us oldies? :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,538 ✭✭✭✭Trigger


    Ray, because come on, Everybody loves Raymond

    Yes. Next match has an Oldie, quite a good Oldie too. There'll be quite a few from the '70s and '80s, and plenty of '90s in the mix. The early draws just happened to group some of the newer folk together. I tried to get as many classic and best know characters in as I could.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,943 ✭✭✭✭the purple tin


    I don't know her but I'll vote Penny.
    Ray is a dose, it's his parents that really make the show.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Although I do quite like Raymond, delighted to see Penny Hartz get a 4-1 win and progress there, and to see Happy Endings get some recognition

    Match 6

    Will the voters be swayed by a somewhat more modern character or do we have any sitcom connoisseurs in the building that will be familiar with a true legend and the sitcom royalty that is Archie Bunker...

    Karen Walker (Will & Grace)

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,711 ✭✭✭Sawduck


    I will vote Archie Bunker because i have never seen Will and Grace and Archie is a legendary character


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Approx 10 minutes to go on this one, and we're all tied up with only a single vote apiece.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Time's up and we're tied, so it's down to me to make the call, and I declare that Archie Bunker is moving on, because All In The Family is class and you should all go watch a couple of episodes!

    Moving On...

    Match 7

    I think this one will be divisive, two great characters facing off here, and the toughest bout so far in my opinion, so will it be JD's Mentor or Al's Missus...

    Dr. Perry Cox (Scrubs)

    vs

    Peggy Bundy (Married... With Children)

    Perry Cox for definite. Great character, and I always thought MWC was highly overrated.

    Yeah gotta go with Cox he's an absolute legend in the show and can't remember but he guest dj'd in some club in Dublin about must be 13 years ago now!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,596 ✭✭✭lassykk


    Perry. Absolutely loved scrubs and he was one of the best characters


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,359 ✭✭✭davetherave


    Dr Cox, because Al Bundy deserved better.


  • Registered Users, Subscribers Posts: 47,268 ✭✭✭✭Zaph


    I love Married With Children, but Perry Cox disproves the theory that Americans don't do sarcasm.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Ouch, a quick win from Dr Perry Cox sends Peggy Bundy to purgatory. As a huge Married... With Children fan myself, that one stings a little I must say

    Oh well, next...

    Match 8

    Will you be there for your Friends or can Silicon Valley's loveable sadsack pull the rug out from under the Chan Chan Man and become the victor...

    Chandler Bing (Friends)

    Chandler Bing. He's suitably neurotic


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,596 ✭✭✭lassykk


    Chandler without a doubt. One of my favourite ever sitcom characters


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,988 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    My vote goes to Season 1-4 Chnandler Bong until Monica ruined him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,359 ✭✭✭davetherave


    Chandler is probably the more recognised character, but Jared is when you look at it, a really interesting character. It is implied that he has had a really dark past and that makes the audience root for him when they see him succeed through his work and able to concentrate on something other than his past in abusive foster homes.

    You have Jareds darkest moments where he is relegated to situations where he feels unable to meaningfully contribute, and contrasting with those you have the episodes where he has the sheer joy and satisfaction of just simply being valued for his work or even for saving the day. I think he is probably one of the most interesting characters in a TV show.

    Also...this guy fu€ks :D
