TV Madness 2017: Call the Midwife and Longmire set for Round Three battle

The third round of our TV Madness 2017 series has shown itself to be as competitive as expected, and today, we’ve got two more contenders in Call the Midwife and Longmire working to fight their way to the final four. They’ve both pulled off upset victories, and you can make the argument that the two shows each have a chip on their shoulder given that they’re somewhat under-the-radar insofar as the amount of press they receive.

So who will emerge as the victor this time around? We’re going to be breaking the two shows and their journeys so far in the tournament down below! Remember that voting for this showdown will remain open until around 9:00 a.m. Pacific time on March 26. That’s when the next battle will take place featuring the the winner here.

Call the Midwife (#8 seed) – What a run the British drama’s had in the tournament already! It upset The Walking Dead in the first round, and then came back from behind to beat The Blacklist in round two. As we referenced, the under-the-radar factor may be a big one here since longtime fans may view this tournament as a way to give the show some long-deserved attention. Also, we assumed that there are many people voting just on quality alone. It’s a show that makes you feel something deep, and there aren’t a whole lot of other shows out there that provide this on such a real, granular level.

Longmire (#3 seed) – It was able to overtake Chicago Med fairly easily in the first round, but it had a somewhat tougher time at first with Hawaii Five-0 before distancing itself from it in the final days of round two. Seeing Longmire in the top eight of the tournament isn’t too surprising, given that this is a show fans love and have already fought for it so much that they kept it alive on Netflix. Getting a win here is a further validation of their passion, and it gets the show so more love at a time when filming for the final season is starting up.

Now, we turn things over to you! Remember that you can vote as often as you want, but you may need to clear the cache or use a different browser if you want to vote multiple times.
