    Takes a couple of episodes to hit its stride alright.

    Not much of a battle there, but Sean Finnerty earns a spot in Round 2 all the same

    Match 20

    It's the Shark Jumping Cool Cat taking on the Bazinga Braniac...

    Sheldon here, though I expect he'll go down in flames.


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


    the fonz jumping the shark on his way to victory

    god i hate big bang at this stage, as soon as you see the underlying formula it shares with and a half men you just can't unsee it


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


    Sheldon is great but he never jumped a shark so it has to be the Fonz

    The Fonz is from Happy Days right? That was before my time, so I will go with Sheldon

    Sheldon never jumping a shark should be a plus for Sheldon? :P

    True ... but still... it's the Fonz.

    Sheldon Cooper. He's incredibly annoying but you still can't help liking him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,358 ✭✭✭✭Kolido


    Sheldon for me, fonz is a bit over rated, bazinga.

    Sheldon.

    Happy Days was sh1te.

    There, I said it.


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


    Fonzie's shark-jumping doesn't impress the boardsies, and its Sheldon Cooper who progresses with a 4-2 win.

    Gonna take a short break after posting this next one to get some of that fresh-air people keep going on about, but should be back again by 6 at the latest for the rest of today's matchs. We're flying through them.

    Match 21

    First appearance of a Seinfeld character with Elaine, but is The Good Place's Janet any match for one of Sitcom's most famous ladies...

    Elaine Benes (Seinfeld)

    Good Janet Bad Janet All the Janets!
    Because there are lots of Janets and Elaine is annoying


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


    Janet because she is the breakout star of a really great TV show


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,018 ✭✭✭Ficheall


    Janet is probably the best character on the show, and I always found Seinfeld overrated.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,404 ✭✭✭✭sKeith


    janet cause of that annoying voice


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


    Was honestly expecting that to go the other way, but perhaps I'm alone in my grá for Seinfeld. :(
    Anyway, Janet is also a fantastic character and off she goes to Round 2

    Match 22

    Will Lois be joining her husband in the next round or could it be To Infinity & Beyond for the Toolman...

    Tim "The Toolman" Taylor (Home Improvement)

    I don't think so Tim. Vote Lois for her whistling ability.


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


    Terrifying Lois for the win. Galaxy quest apart I don't like Tim Allen.


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


    Lois. Great character.

    Tim was just an an annoying ass who never learned from his mistakes. More power + Tim = distruction :(

    What about Buzz Lightyear?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,038 ✭✭✭HalloweenJack


    Lois. I don't think she was an out-and-out comedy character, more of the straight man to Hal but she didn't have a hand in some funny situations.

    Plus, I know I've seen Home Improvements at some point but it never made any impression on me.


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


    Lois makes quick work of Tim, and continues on in the competition with a quick 4-0 win

    Match 23

    It's DeLorean Driving, Time Travelling, Marty McFly studious and money obsessed Alex P. Keaton facing off against The Turtles Greatest Enemy, The Mighty Shredder no nonsense and food loving Uncle Phil...

    Alex P. Keaton (Family Ties)

    Another one that will probably get whitewashed, but I go for Alex Keaton. I liked Family Ties back in the day.


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


    Tough one. Both great characters but I'll have to go for Alex because it's Michael J Fox.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,404 ✭✭✭✭sKeith


    Alex, caz i liked family ties and never got into fresh Prince


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,967 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Tim.

    Lois is a detestable ar5ehole of the highest order.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 50,967 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Ah lads


    Philip Banks was an amazing character, the best in the Fresh Prince.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,083 ✭✭✭Rubberchikken


    Alex. Family ties was funny. Will Smith put me off the fresh Prince show.
