    Loving the bonus point maths! :D

    I've decided there is no hope of me remembering all the shows I want to watch as a result of this thread, so I'm just gonna have to return when I need inspiration!

    I would maybe have sent Broadchurch... but for now I'm just sending a hug.

    Despite a great final round Kolido is still clutching on to that wooden spoon but closes the gap before the bonuses are handed out, while up at the top Sawduck jumps in to the lead and is probably wishing right now that there were no bonuses whatsoever and that it was a clean win right here and now...

    Well it won't take long to uncover the mystery of the Bonus Rounds and see who our winner will be, as the first of the Bonus Rounds is coming up very very shortly ; have one or two behind the scenes things I need to do for it, so hopefully have that going in about 15 minutes...

    Both Bonus Rounds are inspired by TV Shows I'm a fan of, which will be unveiled as the Bonuses are explained...

    I'll post an ordered and ranked list of all 104 shows at the very end after the Bonus Rounds, to make it easier for everyone to get their recommendations from... ;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,695 ✭✭✭ Sawduck


    It's nice being on top for the moment but I'm interested to see what these bonus rounds are

    Bonus Round 1

    The first Bonus Round is inspired by the recent Brazilian Dystopian Sci-Fi classic...

    3%

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4922804/
    IMDB wrote:
    A post-apocalyptic thriller set in near-future Brazil, where a select few are allowed to join a privileged society after undergoing an intense and competitive process.

    HXnmioVl.jpg

    For this round, the shows that were within 3% of full marks will receive bonus points of varying value...
    (for the intents and purposes of this round, we're pretending Dark got regular top marks of 100% or else no one but Aris would be getting any bonus points, so anything 97% or above basically)

    A show that had a Total Average of 97% - 97.9% will receive 1 extra point for their submitter

    A show that had a Total Average of 98% - 98.9% will receive 2 extra points for their submitter

    A show that had a Total Average of 99% - 99.9% will receive 3 extra points for their submitter

    A show that had a Total Average of 100% (or higher) will receive 5 extra points for their submitter

    Those scores coming up in just a few minutes... :D

    Sorry to hear about your loss, thoughts are with you LeVar.


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

    the purple tin (highest rating: 96% for Castle Rock)

    Does quick maths... uh oh... Necro that's some impressive bonus points there!


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


    Well it makes things very interesting indeed, as Sawduck, cee-jay, and (following that whopper bonus score) Necro are now all tied for 1st place, but ShaneU and Electric Nitwit are not too far behind either, and with the big question of what the final Bonus Round could entail, it's anyone's guess what might happen (except me of course, I know the outcome at this stage), and it's all very exciting right?

    Bonus Round 2

    The second, and final, Bonus Round is inspired by an old (and maybe unexpected to some due to my distaste of sportsball) favourite...

    Dream Team

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0169438/
    IMDB wrote:
    Series following the ups and down of fictional English Premiership club 'Harchester United' known more commonly as 'The Dragons'.

    W6UKjy4l.jpg

    Quite simple with this one, you're only as strong as your weakest link, so who put together the best team of shows...
    I've taken all the score totals, put them through the grinder (because I'm not numerically gifted enough to be doing all this math myself) and come up with each player's average of all 8 shows they submitted, to determine a final ranking from 1st to 14th, and points shall be awarded as they were in the regularly scheduled rounds...

    Not going to start from the middle and work my way outwards, we're past that stage, so I'll reveal the results in several groupings, working from the bottom up, and we'll see how that changes things... ;)

    Thanks everyone who took part, I had a lot of fun judging this one, and I hope you all enjoyed yourself.

    Anyone thinking of doing their own TV Walrus, I'd say go for it, there's a good bit of work involved, but it's a blast, and you don't have to do 8 categories (actually, I'd say 8 is probably too much, and if I do another, I'll probably leave it at about 5 categories, not that I regret doing 8 this time around as there were some great shows in each category)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,513 ✭✭✭ aaronjennings
