OK, everyone…I know that anyone reading this site agrees that Sayid Jarrah is one of the most badass characters ever seen on the small screen, if not the most. But a bunch of non-Lostie moony-eyed tween girls of all ages and genders are about to bounce him out of the semifinals of TV Guide’s “Alpha Male Madness” elimination in favor of Dean bloody Winchester on Supernatural.
Now, I like Supernatural just fine as bubblegummy entertainment that occasionally transcends into something of actual quality, and would certainly agree that Dean Winchester is a bit of a badass. But to even mention him in the same breath as our resident lover-and-fighter-and-torturer-and-assassin is a travesty. Sayid outfought a cold-blooded, well-trained killer like Keamy and snapped an Other’s neck with his feet. He’d eat Dean Winchester for breakfast!
Even worse, the other bracket’s semifinal matchup is between the other Winchester, Sam (really?!?) and a pretty pretty androgynous vampire who’s a decidedly secondary character on HBO’s True Blood. As of this writing, Sayid is losing to Dean 54%-46%. Clearly, the fix is in from the Supernatural fan-girls. This is an embarrassment to the Lost fan community.
So go! Vote early, vote often, tell your friends, Digg this, post it to your social networks, tweet it, and otherwise spread the word far and wide that Sayid must win!
You have your orders. That is all.
Addendum: The contest isn’t about who’s prettiest or most sexy. E! Online are the ones who called it “Alpha-Male Madness” instead of “Hottest Hunky Heartthrobs,” “Most Perfectly Pretty Boys,” or something. So, straight guys, it’s OK to go and vote to reaffirm Sayid’s alpha-maleness…be secure enough in your sexuality to stick up for our side in the face of an onslaught of comparative mediocrity. I know you can do it. What’s worse, he’s losing by an additional .2% since the original writing. Rally the troops, people!
