Best in Show competition has begun! They are taking your votes to find out which show is the most incredible, era-defining series on television.
In this first round, Fringe is up against its Friday time-slot competition Supernatural.
Here is the match up, according to HitFix Senior Editor Alan Sepinwall, who gets a 5% vote (and picked Fringe!):
FRINGE - Critic's Choice!
The second "Fringe" stopped running away from its own identity as a weird science fiction drama with a complicated mythology, the show became much, much better. The war between the two parallel universes has added scope and depth and intrigue to the series, and getting to play a different version of Olivia has dramatically livened up Anna Torv's performance.
Not that Sam and Dean's rabid fans need any more encouragement to vote for it, but a deep run in this contest will give me yet another reason to feel guilty for never finding the time to get caught up on a series I've enjoyed on the handful of occasions when there wasn't a big time conflict. Muscle car + well-constructed arc storytelling is right up my alley usually.
While Fringe has a much bigger audience (nearly double), SN fans are very devoted, so the competition will be fierce. In this early stage, Fringe and Supernatural are neck and neck.
Also, there are 15 other shows that need your vote, like How I Met Your Mother, Dexter, and Mad Men. The voting for round one ends on March 6th!
