Alright, I wanted to try something a little different in the ol’ Movies/TV forum. It will probably go the way of all my other failed endeavours (that reminds me, I’ve gotta finish Rate the Musician) unless this actually seems to garner some interest, but hey, can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.

That probably wasn’t the most relevant adage I could have used.

Anyway, this little event is something I call Head To Head. Essentially, we’ll look at two comparable (if not nearly identical) characters from different shows, and whoever winds up with the most points “officially” wins, but the idea is to get you guys to offer some input too, to “stimulate discussion”, if we really want to put it stupidly. Also, I will want suggestions for future match-ups, since I am sparkless and indifferent.

All clear? Very well. In that case, huhhhhhlettttt’ssssssssgetreadytovirtuallytalkaboutrumbliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing!

Well, I’ll be gummed. The very first Head to Head has finished in a draw, with both House and Cox tallying 4 points each. Sometimes, angry medical veterans are too lovable to accurately separate. Rock-hard on the outside, both doctors have shown a softer marshmallow core and have proven to viewers everywhere that no man… should be an island :’(

So, what do you think? Good idea/bad idea? Any match-up suggestions or comments on this match-up? Let's hear 'em and such.

Fantastic idea mate but I think a vote format would be better to get everyone involved or maybe involved your votes and add them to everyone elses votes.


But good first two choices.

I think House totally should've won, but you've gotta give Dr. Cox his dues too.


:heart: for House.

Yeah, I was thinking something along the lines of a vote could be pretty good. Instead of giving points for the comparisons, I could just give the comparisons and people could vote based on those. The character with the highest tally wins.

Yes, you can (now) vote in this thing. As of the next one, it will just be a straight poll, with the points-free comparison points. Or something.

Who should I do next, anyway? I was thinking like, Ray Barone vs. Tim Taylor, or something... along those lines.
