    The [thread=236698]"Small Screen" versus "Silver Screen" thread[/thread] got me thinking that some people might think that some TV Shows are better than some movies.

    Based on that, I thought there could be a tournament for MOVIES vs. TV SHOWS, and in this tournament, we will vote for one single BEST from each side that will collide with each other in the CHAMPIONSHIP, to determine how well or if one can be "best" over the other.

    There will be 10 from each side to determine seedings.

    Please submit one TV Show and one MOVIE that you think has a chance to beat the other. For example, you might like both Silver Spoons and The Simpsons, but SS might be popular with your culture and probably won't beat TS, so submit TS. If you want to submit a movie, do the same, but only submit one of each.

    If someone has already submitted something you think will win, reply to that and add +1 to the count. Only the top 10 will be considered. If there aren't enough, then the tournament will be smaller.

    Entries will be received until posts as of 11:59:59 p.m. of 4/16/2013.

    I will also consider suggestions for changing the tournament process. Please submit your preliminary TV SHOWs and MOVIEs for this tournament! :cool:

    Either way, gotta contend with David lynch. Not sure this fits the mystifying criteria, however.

    EDIT: The day before the closing of the suggestions for MOVIES and TV SHOWS I will compile a list of the top 10. If I can't get 10 top suggestions, I will do with what's available that's what she said (meh, a stretch).
    :confused: Which are your TWO? ONE show... ONE Movie...

    Bah. No jodás, voh... :p

    I'll submit:
    Married With Children
    Predator
