Welcome everyone. I’m Christopher DeFilippis and this is DeFlip Side.
Sixty-four has become 32, and we move into Round 2 of DeFlip Side’s 2016 Sci-Fi Madness! Is your favorite Time Traveler still twisting in the Temporal Tempest?
A TON of Round 1 battles came right down to the wire. Kyle Reese v. Ash, Richard Collier v. James Cole, Terminator TOK715 vs. The Fringe Observers — they were all decided by three votes or less. And Evil Leaper Zoey held her own against the TX to the end. Looks like SkyNet ain’t got nothing on Lothos!
But the most heated competitions were between Doc Brown/The Doctor, The Star Trek Enterpise Crew/Legends of Tomorrow, and Clara Oswald/Phil. Alas, the Tardis was no match for the Flux Capacitor or time loops, because both Doc and Phil are moving onto Round 2! And it looks like that decent fourth season of Enterprise was good for something after all, because Archer and crew advance over the Legends! Did I mention these ALL came down to a single vote?
On a more personal note, I’m happy to see Quantum Leap’s Dr. Sam Beckett trounce Colter Stevens of Source Code. Considering that Source Code was a QL feature film in all but name, it seems fitting. And considering the massive popularity of Family Guy, I was shocked at how badly Stewie Griffin lost against Mr. Peabody.
Speaking of Peabody, he now enters one of the more insane Round 2 pairings, against Wolverine! Will canine brains triumph over bone-clawed brawn? And how about The Enterprise D vs. The Planet Express? Captain Jack vs. Hermione Granger? DS9 vs. Voyager? Sam Beckett vs. Doc Brown????? Which way will the Tempest twirl? It’s Madness, I tell you! Madness!
Vote in Round 2!
