The first round is over! Results and Round Two can be seen here!

Who's up for The Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange's own (slightly belated) version of March Madness?

For all the info, see here.

Here's how to participate:

I will post two answers to this question.

One will be for voting. It will have all 24 primary brackets on it. Any site member with a SF&F SE account older than two weeks as of 4/25/2016 may vote. To do so, simply leave a single comment with the 24 shows you think are better. Put Pass and the bracket's number if you don't want to vote on a specific bracket. Attempting to vote more than once will result in none of your votes counting. At 6pm ET, in exactly one week, voting will close. I will see which 24 shows won their brackets and will post an update for Week Two.

The other answer will be for predicting the winner. This week only, any member with a SF&F SE account older than two weeks as of 4/25/2016 may comment their prediction on the answer. I will record all the predictions and will have a raffle for all the correct ones. The winner will receive a 100 rep bounty on their best site answer, as determined by me.

Please do not leave an answer on this page. If you have an additional question, comment, or gripe that your favorite show isn't on the list, please comment on the main question, not either of the answers.

You can chat about the event here.

Have fun and May the Force be with you/ Live long and prosper/ Keep Flying/ Live together, die alone/ Cowabunga!/ Fear the Living, Fight the Dead...

And remember, choose wisely!

    Why the "account older than two weeks" restriction? IMO it would make more sense to have a rep-based restriction, since you need at least 50 (?) rep to post comments anyway. – Rand al'Thor Apr 26 '16 at 0:54
  • @Randal'Thor I want to prevent the (highly unlikely) creation of multiple accounts solely to vote for people's favorite shows. – Rogue Jedi Apr 26 '16 at 0:56

    What winner are we guessing on? The final result after all rounds? – user31178 Apr 26 '16 at 2:56
  • I think anaranjada's model is better for answering the votes : "1. The Next Generation, 3. My Little Pony, 5. Nu-Who, 23. Quantum Leap, 24. Firefly. Pass on the rest." – Kalissar Apr 26 '16 at 7:47
  • Where is I Dream of Jeannie? Where is Lexx? – user14111 Apr 26 '16 at 8:59
  • @creationedge Yes, the final winner. – Rogue Jedi Apr 26 '16 at 10:22

    Whoever's voting to close this, I got explicit permission from multiple moderators. – Rogue Jedi Apr 26 '16 at 18:18

    You need to post the actual bracket now, before we know the outcome of the first round. As in, which matchup's winner will compete with the winner of the Star Trek matchup? Do we go with the next one on the list, i.e. Futurama/Rick and Morty, or did you have something more evenly-matched (and less apples and Ferraris) in mind? – Martha Apr 26 '16 at 18:22

    Also, is there some way to distinguish between Pass = I have no clue what these shows are vs. Pass = both of these shows suck? Or for that matter, is there some way to give extra weight to "I vote for A because it's a vastly superior show to B" vs. "I vote for A because I've never heard of B" vs. "I vote for A because, although I've never heard of it, it had to be better than B, which was one of the worst things on TV"? – Martha Apr 26 '16 at 18:29

    @Martha You're overcomplicating it ;-) – Rand al'Thor Apr 26 '16 at 18:32

    @Martha That was in reply to your wish to distinguish between different kinds of votes and passes. Yes, it'd be a nice thing to do, but it's already hard enough to make some of these choices - if we complicated it like that, fewer people would bother voting :-) To your first question, I suspect the answer is that RJ will choose new pairings based on which shows emerge as the winners in the first round. The pairings we have already were chosen by RoJal decree, after all ... – Rand al'Thor Apr 26 '16 at 18:59

    @user14111 : I second that --- where is Lexx?? – Praxis Apr 26 '16 at 20:05

    Also, I feel X-Files / Fringe is a better head-to-head than LOST / X-Files, imho. (But I'm happy we're doing this, regardless!) – Praxis Apr 26 '16 at 20:06

    I like the idea of new initiatives and this is very creative. I'm just missing the "why?" Why are we doing this? Why should we participate? [It could also be my FUN subroutine has been deleted.] – Reinstate Monica Apr 27 '16 at 15:28

    @Wikis Several reasons. 1. To do this. 2. To see what properties are more and most popular with the site's membership. 3. To encourage regularly visiting the site. – Rogue Jedi Apr 27 '16 at 18:00

    New Doctor Who! – Rand al'Thor Apr 25 '16 at 20:39

    My Little Pony. Not because it will win, but because it would be funny if it did. – Molag Bal Apr 25 '16 at 20:41

    While it's not my favorite, I predict Star Trek: The Next Generation. I won''t count my prediction, it's just for fun. – Rogue Jedi Apr 25 '16 at 20:42
  • Daredevil should do it. – Thaddeus Howze Apr 26 '16 at 0:16

  • Daredevil ! Here are some chars to be able to post the comment -.-' – Kalissar Apr 26 '16 at 7:51
  • I vote New Doctor Who. It's a great and world-wide-loved show, with lots of fans. – Eithne Apr 26 '16 at 14:25
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer – littlefeltfangs Apr 26 '16 at 14:56

    What ought to win: Firefly. What will actually win (probably): Game of Thrones. (Though as much as I despise, detest, hate, and abhor GRRM's writing, the TV show is surprisingly watchable.) – Martha Apr 26 '16 at 18:15
  • TNG will be the clear winner. – Valorum Apr 26 '16 at 18:34
  • Batman: The Animated Series – System Down Apr 26 '16 at 20:33
  • Although I voted for TOS, I'm certain TNG will win. Effortlessly. – Praxis Apr 26 '16 at 22:09

    Firefly, not because it's necessarily the best on the list (although it might be), but down to the never-ending browncoat protest over moronic cancellations. – Captain Cranium Apr 26 '16 at 22:48

    TNG, based on our tags. – user31178 Apr 27 '16 at 2:16

    Star Trek: The Original Series. That which is dead can never die... err.... it's Star Trek, original Trek. 'Nough said. – Eric McCormick Apr 28 '16 at 23:29
