The TV Madness Final Four is almost set. We’ll let the Reynolds versus Bauer match-up simmer a little longer before declaring a winner. That battle is still pretty close at this point. There have been some surprises during this tournament, and it’s all come down to this. Let’s find out which characters make it to the finals.
The most interesting thing to me is that three of the last four characters have turned out to be females. I knew that women would do well in this tournament, but I didn’t know that they’d comprise of a whopping 75% of the characters in the Final Four. Women have had some real staying power, and now we get to have our first all-estrogen fight since this tournament began.
Buffy Summers – Nobody else came into this tournament with as strong a cult following, except maybe Malcolm Reynolds. However, Reynolds’ show only had one measly season to build up its cult status, while Buffy had several. It’s not like she doesn’t deserve to be here, though. Buffy has seen her fair share of crazy-ass encounters with otherworldly demons and vampires, and somehow always came out on top. Those superpowers came in handy every once in a while.
Cameron – Not enough can be said about the benefits of being a kick-ass Terminator from the future who’s also easy on the eyes. Cameron blazed her way through the competition and now faces the one person who could give her trouble. Still, she’s had an amazing run and even took out the Hulk. She knows what she’s doing.
Final Word: Personally, I’m leaning toward Cameron here. Did Buffy ever battle futuristic killer cyborgs? Really, I’m asking; I never watched the show, so I wouldn’t know. [Ed.: Yes, Buffy has taken out a robot or two in her time. -JZ] Buffy has proved successful during her run in the tournament, but out of her four opponents, she hasn’t faced one person that had superhuman powers. She’s simply gone up against mere mortals until now. While Vic Mackey may have had the power of “The Scariest Bald Man Ever,” Buffy still mopped the floor with him. Now she faces a new foe, one she might not have any experience fighting, whereas Cameron doesn’t care who she’s fighting so long as she’s killing something real good. I think Cameron gets the better of Buffy here. What do you think?
