Curb is so hit or miss. Some episodes have me crying with laughter, others I barely crack a smile and find myself messing around with my phone.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I think the hit rate is really high.

Without even looking at it, my vote is for Omar to survive all comers...

Tony S, Omar, Tyrion and Pinkman is my final 4 but I don’t know who many of those characters are.

Tony S over Tyrion for the win.

Tyrion beats out Omar because of the sheer importance and time on the screen of his character vs Omar but it’s close.

IMO, Omar's courtroom scene (S02 E06 ??) is a tiebreaker... against anybody...

That is certainly a strong scene that’s tough to beat in the history of TV.

Lots of tough calls in that bracket.

Starting up in the top left one, the top 5 is a real murderer's row:

1 Tony Soprano
2 Walter White
3 Selena Meyer
4 Leslie Knope
5 Don Draper

The three men are among the very most iconic lead actors in three of the very best shows ever! Meanwhile the two women are two of the best comedic leads ever in all-time great comedies!

The first matchup featuring two of these would be Knope vs Draper, which is really tough for me given how much I love both shows and characters, but I'm going with Leslie Knope. She is basically a smarter, more lovable Michael Scott, which is pretty great.

I'll take Walter White over Selena Meyer even though she did a great job in that show. What an amazing career she's had!

Of the remaining three, it's pretty close to a toss up for me although I know Leslie would be a big underdog on here.

In the bottom left portion of the bracket, it's much easier for me. Fleabag wins pretty easily, despite being challenged by two great animated characters in Cartman and BoJack. Fleabag over Arya Stark to advance to the final 4.

That and the one where Frank Pembleton gets an untrue confession just to prove his police-dept-loyalty to Giardello... but Omar's was funny while Frank's was MAX serious... made me squirm while watching it...

In the bottom right, Michael Scott walks to the elite 8 to oppose the winner of Omar vs Larry David, which is really tough for me, but I'll go with Omar.

I'll take Omar to the final four in a close one over Michael.

In the top right part of the bracket, the bottom half is much easier for me than the top half.

In the bottom portion, Ron Swanson vs Gob is a good matchup, but bacon prevails and Swanson beats Peggy Olson to get to the elite 8.

Up top, I loved Tyrion, but that character fell off as the show progressed, and his decline was a big reason why the show declined IMO.

So for me, he's actually tested by Leon Black and goes onto lose to Al Swearengen.

Al vs Ron is a close one, but I'll go with Mr. Swanson to the final four.
