We Rank in Peace, Earthlings.
Space. Another frontier of fictional characters we have not yet fully explored on Ranked yet. As we try to still discover life outside our small little blue planet called Earth in the real world, we can at least rely on fiction to come up with some other worldly creatures to pit against each other on a Top 5 list. Join Tuong La and Exotic Extraterrestials Rich Hilborn, Chelsea Fahey, and Angus MacDonald as they beam up and probe out a Top 5 Aliens list.
We Rank in Peace, Earthlings.
Zombies aka The Living Dead aka Biters aka Creepers aka (a thousand other ghoulish names) has permeated mainstream culture in a big way for decades, especially when George A. Romero launched his vision of what we perceive as the “modern zombie” today. Whether it’s your slow shuffling zombie to your horrifyingly fast flesh eating zombie, there has been a number of different haunted takes throughout all types of fiction and mediums. On this year’s Spookifying Halloween special of Ranked, join Tuong La and Undead Creepers Angus MacDonald. Samantha Leggatt, and Taylor Fleming as they celebrate these pop-culture monsters, eat the brains of the living, and come up with the Top 5 Things Featuring Zombies.

History may have forgotten them, but we haven’t.
Thanks to the internet and some high school classes, there have been historical people and their accomplishments that have stood the test of time. However, most of the time there are amazing individuals who slip through the cracks and are forgotten forever….until now! This week join Tuong La and Wikipedia Wizards Sarah Finn, Catherine Ballachey, and Axandre Lemours who put their Googling skills to the test as they research and rank Top 5 Interesting People You’ve Never Heard About.
Hear that? That’s the satisfying sound you get when you pop open a fizzy drink of goodness that’s about to be chugged down. Over the years, there has been a plethora of flavoured, syrupy, sugary, carbonated/uncarbonated soft drinks that has hit the shelves – some great and some that make you question your life. BUT as always there can be only five that reign supreme! Join Tuong La and Unhealthy Human Beings Angus MacDonald, Matt Barrow, and Leslie Cserepy as they bring drink samples to the table and make themselves nauseous as they rank Top 5 Soft Drinks!
*Cue opening title crawl*
Movie themes have become an integral part of the movie experience, even though they sometimes can be overshadowed by the film it’s representing. When done right, the theme can be as iconic as the film itself turning a good movie into one that is remembered for all time. This week join Tuong La and the A-Team Samantha Leggatt, Angus MacDonald, and Leslie Cserepy as they try not to scream at each other while coming up with the best Top 5 Movie Theme Songs.
Arrr matey! Here be some fine Captains!
Every good crew needs a good leader. A leader who can make the hard call, bring a team together, and step up to the cause when needed. Throughout history we have witnessed real-life & fictional captains take to the sea, the skies, and even SPACE to inspire us and steer us on to glory! This week join Tuong La and First Mates Sarah Ghadbane, Angus MacDonald, and Laura Gordon as they sail the seven seas to celebrate the Top 5 Best Captains!
Merry Chris-list to All!
Inspired by last year’s Top 5 Ryans episode, the gang at Ranked decided to finally tackle the hottest question the universe has been asking: “Who is the Best Chris?”. Now the fine folks of the PodCavern did not want to provide you with your typical internet Chris List (because BORING), so we put on a fun twist that cracks open the “Doorway of Chrises” that is sure to stir the pot. This week join Tuong La and Chris-tal Clear Rankers Kristine Shadid, Victoria Luloff, and Marc Quintaneiro as they go off the rails and rank a not-so-typical Top 5 Chrises List!
Oh the good ol’ Ranking Game!
Sorry, it’s that time of the year again where the folks at Ranked break out their toques and sip their Timmies on their chesterfields as they discuss some more great things about Canada! Canada is the land of many things. It’s the land of overly polite people, beautiful scenery, but also the land some of the best god damn music on the planet! This year join Tuong La and Moose Riding Mounties Keish Saunders, Shannon Godelie, and Laura Gordon as they talk aboot and celebrate the Top 5 Songs from Canadian Artists!
