Well there you have it. Fawlty Towers, Father Ted & Blackadder all smashing their respective groups and looking like early front runners.
Not particularly surprised to see the Bottom 3 vote-gatherers as they are, relatively niche shows - I'm a big fan of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, but I'm fully aware that if it had qualified, it would've received the same treatment.
Talks of Groups C & D being Groups of Death didn't really materialise, whilst Group G ended up the real story of the round - the lowest first place and second place collectively votes wise, as The Fast Show & The Young Ones squeaked through, following a real fight from The Day Today & The IT Crowd.
So, onto the Round of 16 Draw;
Some tasty matchups there - I'm particularly intrigued by Match 3, Match 7 and Match 8. If I'm being honest I think Match 5 is the weakest and whoever wins is slightly lucky to make a Quarter Final, but hey - all just personal opinion.
Will set up the individual match threads over the coming days.
