    Thanks @Karin Schill, I had missed a vote which I originally thought was just some general chatter. I have updated the totals. So @SueEllenRules! late vote was even more decisive than was originally thought.

    I think the battles between the main characters at any stage is what makes these knock out competitions more exciting and unpredictable than when we do Top Tens, for example. If every match was like JR Ewing vs April Stevens it would be a foregone conclusion before the first vote is even cast. (I maybe wrong, but I think there is such a match coming up this week).

    Sue Ellen would have won either way, I think! ;) Of course, the results should be accurate! :hat:

    15 voted in the first two matches. And 15 voted in match 3 and 4!
    Thus, I don't think that a "lot" of members refrained from voting! :giggle:

    This week's matches (week 3) will be Match 5 between Ellie Ewing Farlow and Jenna Wade and Match 6 will be between Lucy Ewing and Kristin Shepherd.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    You are voting for the character you would like to win each of the two matches.

    Please post the name of your preferred winner for each match who you would like to go through to the quarter finals. It adds to the interest if you give reasons for your votes but this is entirely optional and you can just post the names if you prefer.

    Voting will close at midnight on Monday 6th February 2018.

    Wow, hahahaha I wonder who will win the first one? ;)

    My vote goes to:

    Match 1: Miss Ellie - I would find it difficult to vote against Miss Ellie (unless she was up against Sue Ellen ;) ). Loved her very much.

    My vote for Match 2: Lucy - I feel Lucy gets a very unfair rap, I really liked her and she was such a valuable member of the family. Plus Kristin is a tramp.

    Match 5 - Ellie Ewing Farlow. I liked both iterations of Miss Ellie and the first 2 interations of Jenna. However, when Jenna appeared in the show for the third time she was a completely annoying and unconvincing character who I never warmed to. Ellie on the other hand was always great.

    Match 6 - Lucy Ewing. I was in 2 minds how to vote in this match. Lucy was great character in the first few seasons she was in but I felt the character was more poorly written towards the end and again when she returned after she left. Kristin however, was always a compelling character. Lucy's role in the Mickey Trotter storyline, which I loved, swung it for me in the end.

    You’re welcome! Although, per the rules, Sue Ellen would’ve won either way. :D

    Match 5: Eleanor Southworth Ewing Farlow ... ... and it was a clean knock-out within a few seconds! :box:Jenna out!

    Match 6: Lucy Ewing Cooper ... ... Lucy was so much better and had so much more potential than the writers/producers gave her credit and storylines for! And yes, the Mickey Trotter storyline was one of her very best! Thus, Kristin need to go!

    Remember you're voting for the character and not the actor. Match 5 could also look like this:

    She already took out J.R. After that, everyone else should be easy. :D

    I'm voting Jenna, cos I think she sometimes gets a raw deal around here and I've just finished watching Season 9 in which she is brilliantly, unapologetically angry towards Pam and Bobby, and Kristin cos she's just so sexy and funny and twisted.

    Hahahahaha

    I wonder who is going to win match 5 not? Too funny. Umm let me think. Such a tough decision. Um how about um

    5. Miss Ellie!!!! I thought it might have been Miss Ellie vs Pam which would’ve been another Sue Ellen vs JR situation. Jenna out for 10

    6. Lucy. I loved her with Mickey. I could’ve watched thoser two for ages. And for more seasons. Kristin was fun but sorry Lucy clinched it here

    Miss Ellie would probably go through almost against anyone, but here an easy victory

    Pam vs Jenna would’ve been ironic


    Thanks again @Angela Channing for all your time and valiant effort here. Just super!

    Match 5
    Jenna was a delight as the ex waiting in the wings for the cracks to appear in Bobby's marriage. A really interesting portrayal of someone who felt she could justify her calculated moves because she's a single mother, doing what she has to in order to survive and find security. Unfortunately, as the seasons went by she became softer, more saccharine and rather less interesting. Ellie, also suffered from feeling less gritty as the seasons went by, but was always watchable even when her role was diminished. Thanks to Barbara Bel Geddes, she was involved in a number of the show's most powerful scenes without which Dallas would be less. So for me it's:
    Miss Ellie


    Match 6
    Lucy scores for being an original cast member, for giving great smirk and for her smart-arse one-liners. She was enjoyably nasty in the mini-series and had some nice moments during her romances. As a fun character she ticked all the boxes, but I'm afraid I've never been able to buy Charlene Tilton as an actress in serious scenes. Not screaming at Mitch, of course (Lucy and Mitch's domestic scenes weighed heavily into my final decision). But not sobbing over Kit either. And no - not even during Mickey's euthanasia storyline (call me a bad person, but the scene where she comes flying out of the house, screaming at Ray like a blonde Taz never fails to make me chortle). Neither Colleen Camp nor Mary Crosby were Emmy material on Dallas, but their brief arcs didn't really ask that of them. So as the sassy antagonist who stirred the pot violently and then fired a bullet into it, it has to be:
    Kristin

    A shocker indeed. I would have put money on JR winning the whole thing ... well, not really but ... it's JR!.

    For Match 5: Miss Ellie, no contest.

    For Match 6: Lucy Ewing. A little harder to choose I would have thought but the voting so far looks fairly decisive.

    After JR being voted out, no one is safe. There's good reason for her to be terrified.
