Couch Madness: 'Requiem' - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

Couch Madness: ‘Requiem’

March 23, 2020 by  

In honor of what should have been NCAA tournament season, Give Me My Remote is launching our own kind of bracket, pitting similarly titled episodes against each other: Couch Madness! (Credit for the excellent name goes fellow reporter Chris Hayner.)

The seeding is simple: rather than quality, we’re going by air date (with the oldest episode getting the #1 slot and the newest getting #8). With Peak TV, this will not include every single show that has used this title; rather, we picked a selection from what was available.

The first round will run from Monday, March 23 through Friday, March 27. Round two will kick off on Monday, March 30, with the final face-off starting Monday, April 6.

Next up? “Requiem.” Keep reading for the bracket, episode descriptions (from IMDB), and the polls. (For the other episodes competing, check out all the brackets here!)

Couch Madness Requiem

DALLAS (1): “Blame is placed and accepted all over the Barnes-Wentworth, Ewing, and oil community when Rebecca dies as a result of a mid-air collision of the company jet. JR’s variance is revoked and he scrambles to find where his next big profit is coming from. Meanwhile, Holly tries, once again, to rid her company of him.”

BANSHEE (8): “Proctor has to deal with an angry brotherhood, Calvin faces Kurt, while Hood and Veronica come to a big realization.”

WITHOUT A TRACE (5): “A family – father, daughter and son – go inexplicably missing. The investigators find out from a school friend that the son witnessed something he shouldn’t have.”

THE WEST WING (4): “President Bartlet and his current and former staffers come together for Leo’s funeral.”

THE X-FILES (3): “Seven years after their first case, Mulder and Scully return to Bellefleur, Oregon to see Billy Miles and investigate a new series of abductions in the local forest, risking their partnership and lives.”

NCIS (6): “A special friend of Gibbs’s daughter asks for help with a Marine sergeant, who has begun stalking her. Gibbs gives him the word, but soon someone abducts the friend and tortures and kills the Marine. Gibbs and Tony solve it and work it out.”

SANCTUARY (7): “Dr. Magnus’ life is put in jeopardy when the team answers a call for help from within the Bermuda Triangle.”
