There weren't too many surprises in the Movie/Book conference but WOW! How about that TV conference? We have never seen the three highest seeds all eliminated in one week. We seeded everything based on a mix between the relative capableness of every sidekick and their popularity. I don't think Kato losing was too much of a shocker. He is clearly a complete champion (further evidence by that fact the character was originally portrayed by Bruce Lee) but his show is pretty obscure. Brock Sampson is  another sidekick who is an "tank" but exists on a show that isn't as present in popular culture as it deserves to be. But Spock! Spock is such a strong contender and he went down in the first round to Millhouse. That was a true shock but you know what they say: The House always wins.


With that being completed, we finally have the Starting 64 competitors in the Superior Sidekick bracket. That is composed of four conferences made up of sixteen competitors each. Here are this week's match ups.
