First off, I’d like to thank everyone who’s helped me with this, including, but not limited to everyone who helped choose shows, everyone who voted and predicted, Jack B Nimble for all the blog stuff and especially, Rand al’Thor, for helping me, giving positive feedback and defending this entire event multiple times.
And now, the results! I’m happy to write that 29 members voted and 19 predicted. The bold numbers represent how many people voted for each series.

- Buffy the Vampire Slayer slew Angel. 12/8
- Nu-Who beat Classic Doctor Who so much it couldn’t even regenerate. 20/2

And now, on to The Great Science-Fiction/Fantasy TV Showdown, Round Two!
After thinking about it for a long time, I’ve decided to arrange the surviving shows in an attempt to prevent steam-rolling. This may not not be entirely “fair” but I argue it gives better data on what shows are more popular among our user-base. For example, everyone knows that Firefly is far more popular than Once Upon a Time, but as of now, we don’t really know whether Supernatural or Sabrina the Teenage Witch are more popular.
- The Heavy Contenders #1: Star Trek: The Next Generation and Nu-Who
- The Heavy Contenders #2: Game of Thrones and Firefly
- Dave Filoni: Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Avatar: The Last Airbender
- DC Animated: Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Animated Series
- Marvel VS DC: The Flash and Daredevil
- Science Fiction with Numbers in their Names: Babylon 5 and Stargate: SG-1
- #80’s: Transformers (Original) and TMNT (Original)
- Animation Across the Nations, 2.0 Edition: Futurama and MLP: Friendship is Magic
