    Janitor because he's hilariously evil to poor old JD.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,192 ✭✭✭✭TheValeyard


    The Janitor


    He was brilliant

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,496 ✭✭✭Yester


    Janitor because he was an evil (ish) man of mystery. (Sorry Randy)


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    Janitor because it sometimes felt like he wasn't even in the Scrubs universe if that makes sense. He felt almost like an angel character with the mystery and all. Plus he was a wisecracker extraordinaire

    Don't know if you're aware but Zach Braff and Donald Faison host a podcast where they rewatch each episode and give a commentary. Apparently, at first the janitor was only meant to be a figment of JD's imagination. Also a lot of his stuff is ad-libbed.


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


    I'll vote Randy because he always stood by Earl, he was a good lad


  • Registered Users Posts: 84,803 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Doctor Janitor aka Glenn Matthews or is it Tommy :p his love hate for JD so well played for Neil Flynn


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


    Janitor. Crazy to think he got knocked out in the first round and had to earn his way back in as he's a fab character.


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


    Randy. He was a truly likeable, if easily led character.
    Just don't give him more than three beers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,535 ✭✭✭PsychoPete


    Janitor for the grudge with the penny in the door


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


    The Janitor with an expected victory there as Randy's karma finally runs out after a 7-2 vote

    Match 12

    In the final match of the night, who will prevail...

    Eleanor Shellstrop (The Good Place)

    vs

    Hawkeye Pierce (M*A*S*H)

    Can I also just say that I really like the Janitor as Mike Heck in The Middle.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 16,287 Mod ✭✭✭✭quickbeam


    Oh Hawkeye! I loved MASH, used to be shown on BBC2 around 6pm once a week. And Hawkeye and his red dressing gown were just brilliant. He had everything.



    (I also hated Donald Sutherland in the same role in the film version. Even though he was the original, it was Alda that made it his).

    Ooof this might be unpopular but again, the scale of 'who I would bang' comes into play and Eleanor wins by a country mile.

    Also helps she's pretty damn funny :D

    Yeah, a very underrated show. I had a couple of them on my original list, but they just missed the final cut. I can't really remember why now that I chose not to put at least one of them in the mix. Perhaps it was an oversight, there was a lot of name flying about in my notebook. :confused:


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,496 ✭✭✭Yester


    Gotta be Hawkeye. He tortured Frank at least as much as the Janitor tortured J.D except Frank deserved it.

    I'd definitely bang Hawkeye.

    I'd still probably bang Alda. He still comes across as charming even as an older man.

    Hawkeye. Great delivery, great timing. He could do comedy and pathos equally well, so much so that Futurama did an excellent parody of him: iHawk, the robot doctor :D

    Just in case anyone missed the memo, this is the last one for tonight, and since we're 4 matches ahead of schedule, I'm having a lie in tomorrow because F**k Mornings, so kick off tomorrow will be 11.30 or so

    4 more matches for Round 3, and then 8 for Round 4 which we should almost definitely get through tomorrow, and perhaps even a Quarter Final or two. The remainder of the Quarters, Semis, and the Final still scheduled for Friday

    Still plenty of time left in this match though to get your votes in for either Eleanor or Hawkeye!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,130 ✭✭✭eldamo


    Eleanor, I love the good place, so many strong characters, made me love the Jacksonville jaguars and Blake bortles (sadly since traded)


  • Registered Users Posts: 84,803 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Alan Alda as Hawkeye is an iconic cult classic legendary character even if the show changed from comedy to less comedy near the end


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,192 ✭✭✭✭TheValeyard


    As much as I loved Hawkeye

    I'm voting Eleanor.

    She did figure out the truth about the Good Place.

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!



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


    Hawkeye for being a legend

    I've never seen Mash because I'm not a fossil like the rest of the people in this thread, Eleanor gets my vote
