Nilbog Catches Up on Shows

TV shows used to be a big part of my life. In the last decade or so, this has slipped somewhat, but now with my own place I'm going to have a chance to periodically check out and/or rediscover shows I've been meaning to watch for a while. Armed with my wife's Amazon Prime Instant Video, and my Sister-in-Law's Netflix, the time has come.

And I'm going to share it with you.

Geekdom Madness: The Battle for Middle-Earth Victor

Sorry about the mess with the polls, guys. I'll be more on that in the future.

The victor of the second round is:

Gandalf the Grey
"Not even the very wise can see all ends"
When the results from the duplicate poll are factored in, Gandalf received 65% of the vote (11 votes), and Gollum received 35% (6 votes)

While the breakdown was similar to last time, there were a few more votes. Let's hope the number only increases as we go on.

Here's the breakdown. Check back tomorrow!

Geekdom Madness: Episode I Victor

Turnout wasn't quite what I had hoped, but it was still enough to make it interesting.

The victor of the first round is:

Jar Jar Binks
"Mesa accept this with muy muy humility!"
Jar Jar received 63% of the vote (7 votes) while Yoda received 36% (4 votes).

Here's how the board looks now. Tune in tomorrow for next week's exciting match-up:

Insect Politics

(Originally Written to Jedi News)

No, this article is not about the deleted Separatist Kangaroo Court scene, though I will say that if George ever does a Special Edition of Attack of the Clones, I’d love to see it put back in, in one form or another.

Clone Wars Season 6: Yoda Arc

I was under the impression Syfo-Dias died before that.

Spoilers ahead.
