'Law-Enforcement Crushes' Day 8: X Files vs. Dollhouse, Without a Trace vs. Cold Case

Round 1 of our Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament comes to a close with today’s quartet of match-ups, and that means we’ll soon be left with only 32 hotties from our initial field of 64.

The latest combatants in our single-elimination showdown include characters from Twin Peaks, MI-5, CSI, Third Watch, The X-Files, Dollhouse, Without a Trace, and Cold Case.

Law-Enforcement Hotties Day 6: 24, Alias, JAG,
Due South, CHiPs, Santa Barbara and L&O Guys Do Battle!

What does this mean to you and your family? It means that it’s time to sit down and vote in the polls below, then alert your friends and fellow TV junkies to do the same!

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, we’ll launch another set of bouts that will test the strength of your respective character crushes. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 1 voting will be open for 72 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

Eventually, our battle will boil down to a finale that pits the ultimate old-school crime-fighter against the ultimate modern-day hero. (Their female counterparts will have their turn in November.)

Day 7 of Hot-Cop Face-Off: Vote for Hawaii Five-0, Burn Notice, Chuck, Criminal Minds and More!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering/fretting, we put a cap of two cast members per show for the bracket, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.

    There’s my Mulder!

  2. Anita says:

    MULDAAAAH!!!!! :D

  3. Dessy says:

    I miss him so much :(

  4. Lani says:


  5. JonLaw says:

    Wow. This is as good as it gets? Bosco and Mulder? Besides the fact DD is it, hands down, at least give the man some competition!

  6. Carrie says:

    Scotty from “Cold Case” was so very yummy.

  7. Sally says:


    If you have never seen Third Watch, you’re missing out.

    • Totally Mrs. Boscorelli says:

      Seeing his face there honestly made me SO HAPPY.

    • MJ says:

      I’m really glad to see him too. And I can’t believe his poll is so close. I do like Grissom, but Bosco is sooo much hotter and he was a fantastic character. I honestly believe Third Watch was a better show than CSI, but I guess most people think otherwise.

  8. Maria says:

    The “Without a Trace” choice really should have been Danny Taylor/Enrique Murciano or Martin Fitzgerald/Eric Close.

  9. Melody says:

    Very interesting – there isn’t a single show in this round that I have ever watched. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

  10. Katy says:

    MULDERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!! Typical only two shows I have watched, X Files and Dollhouse are up against each other. But while Mulder is my all time favourite character ever (and I don’t necessaily mean crushable, although he is) it’s just no competition. Shame, though, cuz I’d have voted for Ballard against everyone else in this particular bracket.

  11. elevendcc says:

    there is and will never be someone like MULDER.

  12. K says:

    I love MacFadyen, but how about a little Armitage. Richard is the best.

  13. austen. says:

    Duchovny’s got this.

  14. Gabrielle says:

    I’m sorry but how is Matthew MacFadyen not wining this round?

  15. Stella says:

    I can’t believe Danny Taylor/Enrique Murciano from “Without a Trace” isn’t on the list! He can’t be left out! He’s so charming!

  16. Princess Adora says:

    Paul Ballard!! He’s a sexy sexy man!!

  17. Rachel says:

    Paul Ballard! He was amazing, and the actor was just incredible both as Ballard and Helo. My little nerd brain is blowing up at the possibility that he might lose, even if it is to Mulder.

  18. Ali says:

    Maurice Boscorelli! I miss him so much. My DREAM would be a show with he and Adam Baldwin. I would die a happy fangirl. Where is Jason Wiles? I want to see him on a show now!!

  19. AT says:

    Definitely Tom Quinn. Too bad we couldn’t vote for Adam, Danny and Lucas North as well. Spooks/MI-5 get the best looking guys.

  20. Ali says:

    Bosco is in a different league than Grissom. Grissom is okay but Bosco was just perfect. Jason Wiles nailed that character so well. I miss him, I miss Bosco and I miss Third Watch. With so many crappy shows, I wish TW would come back as a spinoff.

  21. tom says:

    in what world is David Duchovny more crushable than Tahmoh Penikett?! Google them shirtless, Mulder looks like the Staypuff marshmellow man next to Tahmon.

  22. nitemar says:

    Good old days Mulder!! :)

  23. Michelle says:

    Bosco FTW!!!

  24. Aprilcot26 says:

    Mulder FTW! I’ve had a fierce crush on him since the seventh grade!

  25. Bob says:

  27. redalert says:

    Come on Dale Cooper has to win.

    • Rebecca says:

      Yet he’s barely ahead of a virtual unknown (in the US, anyway) from MI-5. Twin Peaks aired before a lot of the kiddie voters here were born, and they don’t have any idea what it is.

  28. Blame Leno!! says:

    I kinda of feel like Mulder is the only crushable guy in this bracket. Is it just me?

  29. Amber says:

    Any way David Duchovny doesn’t take this whole contest? Though I suppose Johnny Depp could do it. The only thing that annoys me is that I think Johnny Depp is going to win it based on his current appeal…no way 80% of the audience on this website even remembers or ever saw 21 Jump Street. That show is way too old school.

  30. Matthew says:

    Is it just me or is the Dale Cooper (Twin Peaks) verus Tom Quinn (MI5) poll result missing? I only see 3 poll results in the article.
