Hopefully there are some people out there who are as addicted to these survival games as I am and are willing to play another one, because I've played this game on other threads and it's a lot of fun! It should also be interesting to see if the results mirror those of the other episode survival games. I'm shamelessly stealing the below rules from Karoline, with adjustments to account for the large number of GG episodes:

Rules:
Vote for your FIVE least favorite episodes.
After several hours have passed and (at least) 5 people have voted, the round will end.
I'll tally up the votes, and the THREE episodes with the most will be eliminated (with tiebreaker rounds as needed). We'll then begin a new round.
This will carry on (with changes to the number of votes as we get down to fewer episodes) until only one remains.
I'll post a list of all episodes here and edit to debold eliminated episodes to make it easy to keep track of what's been eliminated. Since obviously no episodes have been eliminated yet, as of now they're all in bold:

Pilot---Eliminated in Round 25
The Lorelais' First Day at Chilton---Eliminated in Round 20

Looks good, marlaas! This is going to be hard, I'm so used to thinking of which ones are my most favorites!

Secrets and Loans
I Solemnly Swear
S(hr)inking Lorelais
The Fundamental Things Apply
An Affair to Remember

Wow, that was easier than I thought.

Hmmm... sounds interesting. I haven't yet made it over to the survival games but I'll try this one.

Bridesmaids Revisited
Die, Jerk
Here Comes the Son
The Third Lorelai
Paris Is Burning

I think I went pretty randomly this time, just the first five episodes from that list that jumped out at me that I tend to skip when I watch the DVDs.

I didn't love season 6. But I didn't hate it. My problem is, what could have easily been the worst episode of the season was split into two for me -- half of it was in the top three of the season, and the other half was the worst!

But I really don't have much love for most of season 4, so I'm looking forward to seeing those die.

This is suprisingly easy:

Partings
He's slipping 'em bread... dig?
I get a sidekick out of you
Welcome to the Dollhouse (just how bad was that?! I'm shocked just thinking about it)
And finally... Driving Miss Gilmore.

Other seasons have 'not as good' episodes too, but season 6 was the first time I thought 'Wow, this is just really, really bad'.

It is truly sad that 3 of my most loathsome are in S6 - it started off with so much promise for a great season...

I'm so glad that people are playing! I had a nightmare last night (yes, literally...I'm quite sad!) that everyone voted again after midnight, so I just wanted to say that each TWoPer can vote only ONCE per round. So far, no one seems to have voted twice, so thank you!

I was probably the wrong person to take this on since I'm so numerically challenged, but I've tallied everyone's votes and have checked the current totals twice. The round will end at about 1:30 today, and we'll then have a few hours for a 'tiebreaker' if necessary. If there are no ties for those coveted bottom three positions, we'll just get immediately started on Round 2.

Thanks again to everyone who's playing!

Since voting has slowed to a crawl, if no one objects we'll close the 'polls' at about 12:30, at which point I'll post the results. As of now, there are two episodes that are the undisputed losers, but we might have to have a quick 'tiebreaker round' to determine which will be the third episode to be eliminated. After consulting other threads, the easiest way to do it will be to just reveal the two or three episodes that are tied and let everyone pick the ONE of those two or three that they want to be eliminated. See you all at 12:30!

Ok, I'm back with the results. I hope no one reports me for double posting, but I knew that if I edited my last post, many people might not know to check the thread. Anyway, I'm pleased to present our first two eliminated episodes:

Partings - 13 votes
I Get a Sidekick Out of You - 9 votes

There are, however, two episodes that tied for the next highest amount of votes with five each. Shockingly, neither is from S6! So, vying for the dubious distinction of being the third episode to be eliminated in the first round will be...How Many Kropogs to Cape Cod and Here Comes the Son.

So here's the next step: until about 4:30, please cast a tiebreaker vote by just posting the name of the episode that you WANT to be eliminated. At that time, I'll tally up the tiebreaker votes and announce the third eliminated episode. We'll then start casting our votes for Round 2.

I'm casting my tiebreaker vote for Kropogs, as I absolutely loathe the sudden and inexplicable downfall of yacht-stealing, Yale-leaving Rory. Meanwhile, I'll 'debold' both Partings and Sidekick from our original list to remind everyone that they won't be eligible for Round 2. Happy voting!
