    As we are now building the database for the 2014 Gold Derby TV Awards,
    we are offering you the chance to help determine the overall slate for the
    Episode of the Year categories.

    You will be able to vote on all the other categories very soon, but in the meantime, here is what we need for you to do.

    Send
    me a Private Message (PM) listing your top 3 comedy episodes and top 3
    drama episodes for the 2013-14 television season. DO NOT send more than 3
    titles for each category. PLEASE rank them in order with #1 being your
    top choice.

    We will take the top 30 comedy nominees and top 30
    drama categories, create pages for them in our overall awards database,
    and only you to then narrow down the field to six nominees each (just
    like all the other categories). This makes the whole process democratic as to which titles will be available for voting (there is absolutely no way we can leave it open-ended and use our candidate-based system).

    Your deadline is midnight on June 13. Please start sending your episode votes now.

    You can also campaign for one comedy favorite and one drama favorite in
    this thread.

    DO NOT campaign for more than that. Your post will be
    deleted if you do so.

    Are animated episodes eligible? If so, I’d like to campaign South Park for Black Friday and The Legend of Korra for Beginnings.

    Just comedy series and drama series as they are determined on the actual Emmy ballots.

    So, Shameless and OITNB are comedy? Can we vote for Fargo in drama, or only True Detective?

    Shameless addicts unite! Should we go for “There’s the Rub”? “Hope Springs Paternal”? “Lazarus?” I think we should go for the former due to the Fiona coke shocker… 

    As for my actual campaigning… I suppose I would remind everyone that “Las Vegas” from Modern Family is a comedy gem, and that “Martial Eagle” from The Americans is a riveting hour of television.

    Everything on out ballot will be exactly as it is being submitted at the Emmys. True Detective is a drama. Fargo is a miniseries. Orange is a comedy. Shameless is a comedy. Etc., etc.

    Okay.

     

    Shameless — “There’s the Rub”

    The Newsroom — “Red Team III”

    And Continuum?  Or will the discrimination against it by the Emmys carry over to this?

    Damned animation bias…

    Animation is actually on the Emmy writing ballot now.

    Anyway, everyone who is voting for Review, please only vote for “Pancakes, Divorce, Pancakes“, as I will be doing.  It is not my personal favourite, but we need to consolidate support and it is the most logical one to push, especially since it is the episode that the show itself is pushing.

    From True Detective, “The Secret Fate of All Life” this might not be everyone’s choice, but it was my favourite of the season.

    one of my comedy choices will be from Community, but I will defer to someone else to select which one will get a push.
    Therefore, I will campaign one that will likely get overlooked, from How I Met Your Mother, “How Your Mother Met Me”. Even though the season wasn’t that great overall, this was a fantastic episode.

    That was a good episode, I’ll have to admit. Milioti sold the hell out of her character – to the point that I kind of want her to get a GoldDerby nod. It’s unfortunate that pretty much all of my good will for the show has dissipated, as of late.

    “Secret Fate of All Life” is probably my overall favorite episode of the show, given how much it advances the story, though “Who Goes There” is right there with it.

    Are there any episodes of Community that you’re leaning to? I get the sense that “Cooperative Polygraphy” or “Geothermal Escapism” would be the most notable ones to nominate, though “VCR Maitenance” was probably the one that I laughed at the most.
