          No, it's correct, StateOfSiege had switched the + and - landing Doc at 3 points before Stoney posted (instead of at 1)

      • I would try the outfit game happily if there were pics but I wouldn't be able to just recall them.

              • TTB - I think we posted at the same time. Ethan starts at 8, and Doc at 2

                What do we judge the outfits by? I mean, is it just I like this better than that? With the characters there was some depth to talk about, but I can't picture myself doing a Lorne over the clothes "Well, look at those clunky heels. Could you just die, crumbcake?!"

                Shallow as it may seem, I like depth!

                    I will refrain from voting here, so as to not hold things up...
                    Just hear me sobbing in the background...

                • I keep trying to think of different elements of the characters or episodes that we could vote on. I wondered whether we could compile a list of the sets in each episode and vote for how well used the settings were in each episode. So you could perhaps consider the scenes for tone, ambiance, creativity etc. As usual that would take quite a bit of compilation as each episode would need a list of the settings used through it.

                  Another alternative done in the past I think has been based on the writers. Grouping the eps each has written and coming up with a top selection for each to then pitch together in a final round. I think that is how that has worked, I'm not sure as I haven't personally participated in one of those I don't think.

                  • We could go through the characters - like top 3 Willow episodes. List episodes where Willow has a primary role, and then vote until we get to the top three. Do that with all the recurring characters, Giles, Buffy, Xander, Willow, Angel, Spike. We could even throw in Wesley and Faith. Then decide which of the episodes we like best.

                      That might get more interesting results if we include every episode that the characters were in. Small appearances that are popular or significant even when they don't play a lead role in the episode might mean some unexpected ones shine. So the ones just out of the top 3 or 5 would probably end up being more interesting than the 'key' character episodes. Actually, in that sense there is an argument for kicking out the episodes that are considered each character's centric ones. Like we took out the supporting characters which had too main a role in this elimination because they would have predictably won the differing rounds.

                        I don't think the big episodes will always be the winner. I mean look at who we ended up with in this game. I doubt Ted was an obvious choice. Robin Wood is far more obvious - bigger role, more important, more attractive, more drama. It's a perfect example of a big vs a small not ending with the obvious.In fact, I think we should just go for each season. We'll vote out episodes where the character has no role quickly.

                        Of course the game would take forever.

                        Seasons 1-7 for Buffy, Willow, Giles, and Xander. Seasons 2 - 7 for Spike. Seasons 1-3 & 7 - for Angel. We could add season 3-4 & 7 for Faith. Top 3 decided for each season - there will be overlaps. Then the top three of each character's seasons would be combined into the final game list. Right now, while we are stuck at home, I could use the distraction.

                    • I like the idea of that game.

                      I'm also fond of the writer's episodes game as well. That could prove interesting.

                        • bespangeled I don't think the big episodes will always be the winner. I mean look at who we ended up with in this game. I doubt Ted was an obvious choice. Robin Wood is far more obvious - bigger role, more important, more attractive, more drama. It's a perfect example of a big vs a small not ending with the obvious.
                          But in part that is because we took out a lot of the main supporting characters so that there weren't ones in that would have a great advantage over those that appeared less. If we lost the key centric episodes for the characters then other appearances and smaller moments would definitely get to shine. I'd be interested in what episodes for Spike would be in the top five if ones such as FFL were taken out. I think Ted, Doc and Willy doing so well were more surprising, but the others in the top ten aren't as much. If characters like Anya, Wes or Amy, for example, had been included then the top twelve would have just been more predictable.

                          In fact, I think we should just go for each season. We'll vote out episodes where the character has no role quickly.
                          Hmm, but that's why I'm saying taking out their biggest episodes will get more thought and consideration onto their other appearances and impacts. The smaller moments or stand out scenes rather than the bigger ones of greater and more obvious character exploration.

                          But I like the idea of looking at each character so will go along with whatever the consensus is. I'd happily do a writers one too or general episode elimination again. There's always the chance that SpuffyGlitz might continue the prologue ending game at some point when she has the time to look at that again too. Really I'm happy to try any as I just like the elimination games as a light distraction in the day.
