Sci-Fi / Fantasy Survey -- The Results Are In!

Many of you participated in the impromptu survey I created yesterday, and after the 252 votes were tallied, it was a drubbing in favor of that most popular of double-hearted time travelers. Doctor Who beat out the closest competitors by a sizable margin in both Favorite Franchise, and Snappiest Dresser (Male) categories.

Even more decisive was the victory for the TARDIS in the category of Coolest Mode of Transportation, which more than quadrupled the number of votes of its closest competitor (Serenity). Apparently having a pool, library, and the ability to travel anywhere in time and space has its advantages.

The closest battle was in the category of Best Dressed (Female), in which Inara Serra narrowly edged out Princess Leia and Arwen.

I feel a little bad that I didn't spend more time choosing competitors, as write-in votes for "other" made a respectable showing in every category. While there were a number of write-ins for BSG in the Favorite Franchise category, clearly the Best Dressed (Female) was vastly under-represented, with many votes for Amy Pond, Rose Tyler, River Song, and River Tam. Mea culpa.

Overall this was a fun experiment. The competition remained friendly despite  my best attempts to pit the G+ communities against each other. I can see me maybe conducting more geeky competitive surveys in the future, and I'm open to suggestions for topics.

Thanks for playing!
