The Thrill TV Bracket Challenge Best Shows So Far

9 Jul

Our Thrill TV first round matchups are all settled. In day 4 of the Bracket Challenge, Buffy The Vampire Slayer beat VDollhouse upset Unsolved MysteriesFirefly beat Battlestar Galactica, and The Pretender upset Tales from the Crypt. See the updated bracket.

This has been a lot of fun so far with responses coming from Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and more. Personally I am surprised to see so little support for Unsolved Mysteries, which was a great show that millions watched. Maybe people were less interested in mystery documentaries, and more interested in scripted shows. That’s fine by us.

We’ll start round two of the Bracket Challenge on Monday. In the meantime, check out the forums and check us out on Facebook.

I’m not superstitious, so I don’t think the failures of the past have any impact on the future, still AOL TV has named Blackthorne one the 10 Stars With Bad TV Luck.
