Re: Favourite assignment

I went with #2, which is proving to be the most popular among us voters so far. It's a very strong plot, and although it runs a bit long like you said Timeless, I think it's definitely still my favourite. #5 is great too, but I have to agree that it's the odd one out. #3 is just embarrasing, definitely my least favourite one. #1 and #4 are both great, good storylines etc and well thought through, and #6 just misses out because of its ending.

It's a very hard, very close choice. I could have chosen three or four of them as "favourite." The only one that really fell down was #3. Two is definitely a good one--I would have put either it or #5 next. Then maybe 4 or 6. #6 is just hurt by its ending--you can feel the story is unfinished, and it ruins the effect. But it's a testament to the series that it's so hard to pick a favourite--there was such a level standard, it's hard to pick a stand-out. :yes:

Re: Favourite assignment

I went with two as well only because we weren't allowed to pick more then one favorite. :happy:
It was a tough choice.

Re: Favourite assignment

Yeah, you need a few options. Maybe a ranking?

What about Assignment 6.5, "Carbon Copy"? :lmao:

Sorry for that - those are the general forum settings for polls so I can't do much about that I'm afraid. :wink: Still, this way you can really see which is the best loved assignment though.

Re: Favourite assignment

Hard one for me to pick, too. I chose 4 - cos I like how Sapphire reminds me of Purdey in that one *gg* AND I like Sapphire and Steel getting stuck in that photo.

Her outfit is very Purdeyesque, isn't it? Part of me wishes they'd had Gareth on for one Assignment, as another element--he could stare eerily too after all. What could he have been? Jet? Yes, let's have him as Jet. :wink:

Well, as far as fan-theories go, the gems are all female and the metals male. I always had the impression, too, that Jet was female and that Steel worked with her before he partnered up with Sapphire. (Wasn't there a line where, in Assignment 1, Lead said something like "Jet sends her love" to Steel?)

So - Gambit as Mercury maybe? ;)

I don't know--I'd have to see the episode again, but I'll take your word for it. You've clearly spent more time thinking on this than I have. :lmao: Yes, Gareth could do Mercury. That would have been brilliant--Steel thought Silver was competition. He wouldn't have stood a chance against the Lumley/Hunt chemistry. :brows:

Yep. :grin: Our brains run on circuits, and they have favourite fandom stops. I can probably relate pretty much anything to the Avengers, LoM, or Canada. Yes, it's a talent. But hey, TNA's a classic--can't have too many references to it, can you? :whistle:
