Today's winners: Knight Rider competely dominates. Like this.



While Jessica Jones very narrowly defenestrates the competition.

Next is Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors by Shuki Levy and Haim Saban (Daikaiju) facing off against "Balls in the Air" by David Shwartz from Arrested Development (Issun).

]

Then it's The Pink Panther Theme by Henry Mancini (Bongo) against "Ru-Ru-Ru-Russian Roulette" by Meiko Nakahara from Dirty Pair (WisteriaHysteria).


Feel free to share your feelings on your selections, people who nominated.

Voting Closes 12 AM Atlantic Daylight Time tomorrow.

Oof. Tough matchup.

Dirty Pair is a good TV show, and its theme song rocks. It does a great job of capturing the show's vibe and tone, and it appropriately hypes the viewer up for some bombastic space shenanigans. It's peak 80s anime goodness. I love it!

I completely forgot. Though I did not say it, I was going to put up some fun facts about the shows that lost in the second round, as a sort of consolation prize.

Magnum P.I.
Season seven was originally intended to be the final season, with Magnum on the verge of death and having an out-of-body experience after a shootout, but it was decided to do an eighth season - albeit a shorter season - so Magnum 'returns' to life.

Taxi
On The Howard Stern Show (1990), writer Sam Simon claimed that when Jeff Conaway was absent during the production of one episode, his dialogue was reassigned to the other cast members. They delivered the jokes just as well or better, and the producers realized that Conaway was expendable. Conaway left during the fourth season.

Luckily, Conaway landed on his feet and made film history with his masterpiece, Bikini Summer II (NSFW some nudity).


Mazinger Z
In the early 80's was created a Mazinger Z's statue at full size, in Mas del Plata, province of Tarragona, autonomous community of Cataluña, northeast of Spain. At 2015 it continues existing nowadays. (Yep, I just copied and pasted some IMDB trivia. My grammar mistakes are many but they rarely involve this sort of double verb mess we see here).



Six Feet Under

Here's an appropriately morbid one.

Nikolai's flower shop actually is a real flower shop at 14325 Ventura Blvd and was once a gas station. It was in fact the gas station that James Dean filled up at the day he left out of town on his way to the crash that would kill him (there is a color photo of him at the station about to get back behind the wheel in fact).

I was looking back at the winners from the previous round and if Johnny is doing the matchups the way I think he is then there are some brutal matches in this round.

Uh... You might want to put that youtube video behind a link since it's NSFW.
