  • Supporting Characters Elimination Game

    Okay, so here's a new game. Let's try to decide who was the best supporting character on the show.

    There are 82 characters in the list we ended up with so I'm suggesting four rounds (20, 20, 21, 21) where we whittle down to the top three and then have a fifth and final round with the top three of the previous four rounds (12). For reference, the four groups are under the spoiler.

    Round 5 - THE FINAL - the top three from each of the previous rounds

    Rules
    Let's keep the same basic rules we've used before...
    - You can only vote after 3 other people have voted since your last vote, or 2 days have passed since the last person voted.
    - All characters start with 5 points. Points are reset to 5 for the remaining characters at a few stages (when there are 15 episodes left and when there are 9 left and when there are only 5 remaining too).

    How to play
    'Reply with quote' to the last post and then choose a character to award one point to and a character to take one point away from (tell us which beside the + and - above the character list). Update the points then post.

    **It would be appreciated if you remember to scan above your post after you make it just to check if someone actually managed to post just a moment before you, then you can 'edit' your post to amend the points to incorporate theirs too.**


    If anyone has any questions or notices any errors please feel free to shout out. Anyone is welcome to join in as and when they are able, it would be great to get as many opinions in the mix as possible.

      What are we voting about? Is it just how much we like the character or how effective we think the character was?

      Comment

        I think it could be either, really it comes down to which you prefer over another. Whatever way you want to judge them against each other really. So I suppose the purpose is to find the 'best' ones. I'll add a line into the opening post to try to make it clearer.

        During the game if you think someone should stay because they were well acted or had a great story you can argue for them if someone else starts voting against them. Equally you can argue against others with whatever subjective reasons form your preference for one character over another too I think. We're always fairly open in these kinds of elimination games to start presenting reasons and trying to persuade others if possible. But until you feel a need to present your personal reasons you can just vote based on whatever forms your preferences.

            What's wrong with Cassie? I remember who she was, for starters.
            Who the hell is Caridad? I don't even remember some of the Potentials. Just Amanda, and maybe Rona and the one played by Felicia Day. Was that Chloe?

              I don't remember Caridad either. Felicia Day played Vi, the Potential with the knitted cap. She is my favorite potential.

                That was why I voted for Caridad, I couldn't even remember her too. Chloe was the potential who hung herself. Amanda, Vi, Molly and Rona I can picture. And Chao-Ahn. But other potentials don't bring a face to mind for me. Oh, Eve does too, but she was dead before we ever knew her so that's why she isn't included.

                I think Cassie is a strong character and an intriguing one personally. I'm not sure she'd be in the top three of the group for me, but she could be, or at least be very close.

                  If I don't remember a character, then I probably didn't dislike them. I'm not a fan of Cassie. I didn't feel anything for her, and considering she was going to die I should have felt something. I liked her relationship with Dawn, but that wasn't enough.

                      Ah that's an interesting perspective, being able to remember a character and not having a positive strength of feeling for them as potentially more damaging than not being able to remember them. I found Cassie's calm acceptance of her fate quite chilling and I thought the actress was really good. I remembered her from the film 28 Days and I think that predisposed me to liking her too (the characters were quite similar in some ways as well, as I recall anyway).

                        If you don't remember them at all, it's probably because they were completely forgettable, which is worse than being disliked.

                          You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.
