    Yeah, it's getting pretty drafty in here, isn't it? [​IMG] Well, so what... these are fun!

    Pretty straightforward: 8 participants, 10 rounds, 80 TV shows. Any kind of show is fair game. TV movies and mini-series are cool, too. And you better believe I'm going first. [​IMG]

    Perhaps we should stop at 8 people? It occurs me that 160 TV shows might be pushing it.

    Doesn't seem like any others are interested? Sorry Lew and Rand, maybe you could start up an alternate draft like they did with the foreign films. I'm guessing people are reluctant to sign up because there are 4-5 "top shelf" shows that are certain to be snapped up right away, kind of like Beatles/Who/Stones in the music draft.

    Anyway, let's begin!

    My first pick is a tough choice. There are four I considered, any of which are certain to be grabbed before it comes back to my turn. My pick is:

    [​IMG]

    Seinfeld

    I've never seen an episode I didn't like, which I can't say about any of the other three I was considering.

    Justin is next.

    BTW, the first 2 rounds will have a 24-hour time limit. After that we will switch to 12 hours.

    Wow, I'm surprised by the picks so far. I didn't expect any of these to be first round choices (though I didn't expect T Zone to last very long).

    next up:
    Ric Bagoly
    John Thomas
    Jan H (x2)
