In last week's 'Shop Contest our image-manipulating community went on a quest to create the perfect live-action Legend of Zelda TV series on the heels of new of a collaboration between Nintendo and Netflix. The winning entries are better than anything those two could put on not-TV.

The winning-est entry of them all this week belongs to Cartoonivore, who took a series I'm only mildly interested in and combined it with something I love to make something better than the sum of its parts. Am I referring to Breaking Bad or Zelda? Moving on.

Cartoonivore's win doesn't mean the rest of this week's entries weren't just as grand and glorious. Or does it? So confused.
