Sounds good, I will be looking forward to voting in this. Also, some of these matchups look really good too (Cobra Staff vs. Annie Oakley, Kamehameha vs. Atahualpa). I was wondering when this will start. :mrgreen:

I doubt there will be tiebreakers, but if there is, how should they be broken?

Maybe keep the poll open for an extra day? I don't know, how did we do it in the past?

You could always hold another poll and the first episode that reaches 3 points or some number will win that matchup. I hae done that on other forums, and it seems to please most of the masses.  ;)

You mean you can't start it a week early? :P Just kidding, I can wait another week. ;) I am looking forward to how this turns out as I think we will have some surprise episodes winning certain rounds.

Right now, I see very few surprises. Looks like we're looking at a lot of one sided poll results, like when you did these polls. But, I'm not complaining. They all got to start somewhere, right? ;)

You will find those in all kind of tournaments. I had that problem with my "Best Legends Win" tournament where a great win gets paired with a bad win. At least we don't have matchups like Snow Cone vs. Bifocal Monocle where a completely undeserving episode gets to advance while two great episodes get matched up together.

Yet I see choices like Snakeskin Boots/Cricket Cage and Galileo/John Henry. I already know what I'm voting for there. Not that it can be controlled or anything. Sometimes randomization is funny that way.
