Pitting one TZ episode versus another episode. Basically we post 2 episode pictures, the one with most votes ( even just 1 vote ) wins,
then we pit it against another episode, and so on.

As great as the first one is, I don't know if anything can beat the sight of Telly Savalas having an ongoing feud with a talking doll!

5 characters is just such a classic episode so that gets my vote,

As for the next poll, I'll go with it again. Death is cool but one for the angels doesn't come close to equalling 5.
Mr Z. I think 5 might be champion for awhile :D

You know SVB, you are right, I started off with a very strong contender,perhaps I should have went with a different less popular episode, 5 Characters is such a classic episode, it does have alot of fans.

Please go for the next round. I would be honored :D

Saliorsam, great taste, Flight 33 is a good one, I would still say 5 Characters, so we are at a stalemate. I am waiting for one at least one more response, if not, I'll give it to F 33. :D

Oh Mr Z ....if it had been any other episode I would have gone with five characters, but I am a sucker for four o clock. Sure :lol: , it isn't the best episode and it is quite inferior in many respects , but I gotta go with the personal favorites.

Four O CLock

I expect this episode won't make it very far :clap: its sure to get outvoted

One halfway obvious one would be between I DREAM OF GENIE and THE CHASER.
Like probably a lot of people, I don't go for THE CHASER's ending (not because there's no murder, but the particular REASON there's no murder). So that's enough to put I DREAM OF GENIE a little ahead.

Yeah, 5 Characters is a favorite for sure, I love 4 of us so much, this was hard for me too, yet 5 inches 4 out, so
sure we can go on to 2 different epis, do you want to do IDOG vs. The Chaser? Go for it.

I don't know either of them all that well, so it's tricky.

I know one complaint about I Dream Of Genie is the way it underuses Joyce Jamieson, and that's understandable.
Somehow I've always liked the running joke of Attila the dog being played by a different dog in every scene. It's somehow obvious and funny at the same time.

As I said on its thread, the main thing (though it's kind of a big one) that bothers me about The Chaser is the ending, that "pregnancy is the solution to the problem" ending. You see that attitude in far too many stories, and OUTSIDE of fiction for that matter! Maybe it's a little more original in a WEIRD comedy, but still, it's the fly in the ointment for me.

At least they both have Patricia Barry, who seemed to have a knack for playing attractive "shallow" characters.

2 Bit, yeah that is hard contest between those 2 episodes. 2 kind of forgettable episodes, that have similar themes. So yeah I agree, tricky.

I do not think you could find 2 more closely matched episodes,just pure mediocrity for me, for both, I think I give it up to IDOG, only because of Patricia Barry. At least I/we get eye candy, heh heh.

MIAB does have Joseph Ruskin, who for his part ,does a super great job, yet the episode is bland, and ending is predictable, sorry.
