I dont know if I would have seeded 52 #1 in the west bracket (poor attempt at March Madness humor, sorry) but all in all a great job, Also Kid isnt in the final 4 however he made some good headway on the brackets a few times. It's weird that I know almost all the eps by #, remembering numbers is one of the only talents I posses. Kudos to you Dilbert(pun intended).
I appreciate the praise, but a good bit of it is unwarranted. The seedings were not done by episode quality, they were done purely by episode number. Initially I thought about doing seeding by 'quality', but that gets extremely difficult past maybe 12 or so episodes that everyone agrees are excellent. The idea of the contest comes from c-square's EP/OD contest, which was inspired by a kkslider topic, though it is true that the structured bracket system is my idea (iirc, the EP/OD contest simply used performance by round to determine 'seeds', though I'm not 100% there).

"The energies of our system will decay; the glory of the sun will be dimmed, and the earth, tideless and inert, will no longer tolerate the race which has for a moment disturbed its solitude. Man will go down into the pit, and all his thoughts will perish. The uneasy consciousness, which in this obscure corner has for a brief space broken the contented silence of the universe, will be at rest. Matter will know itself no longer. 'Imperishable monuments' and 'immortal deeds,' death itself, and love stronger than death, will be as though they had never been."
