We’re into the next round of the Fictional Lawyers Tournament. Most people here in the Breaking Media offices have filled out a bracket, and so far I’m getting crushed. I picked based on who I thought you guys would pick (not who I voted for myself), and I’ve been very wrong so far. It turns out the readers and I have more in common than I thought (which should probably scare the bejesus out of many of you readers).
But I’ve still got all of my final four lawyers alive. As we get started on the sweet sixteen, we should start to see which characters really have the juice to finish this thing.
Check out the full bracket below and then click through to vote on the match-ups from the left-hand side of the bracket. On Thursday, we’ll vote on the right side (CLICK HERE for part two of this round)….
Here is the updated fictional lawyers bracket. You’ll note that we lost some very good and entertaining lawyers in round one.
Based on the first round results, I can say two things with confidence:
- Not enough people watched/watch Adult Swim.
- Many of you people who went to law school because you liked Boston Legal are going to wake up one day in a windowless conference room surrounded by boxes stacked two deep against the walls, and you’re going to find yourself Googling David E. Kelley and “semi automatic sniper rifles for sale.” That’s going to be the point where you’re going to want to come over to Above the Law and leave a nasty comment about me and a walrus. It’s okay, that’s what I’m here for.
I’d say something about Keyrock but right now the pain is still too near to me.
Enough about the losers; let’s start talking about the winners.
We start with the left side of the bracket. Voting closes SUNDAY, JUNE 26, at 11:59 PM….
