Chuck, Hawaii Five-0, The X Files, and Twin Peaks Faves Do Battle in 'Lawmen Crushes' Tourney!

November keeps getting hotter, thanks to the chiseled combatants of our Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament. Round 2, Day 7 is highlighted by a battle between a couple of quirky classic characters, and a showdown involving a geeky superspy and a hunky island dweller.

No matter your preference, it’s time to sit down and vote in the polls below, then alert your friends and fellow TV junkies to do the same! As part of our single-elimination competition, only one from each bout will advance to our Round of 16.

‘Cop-Crushes’ Tourney Continues: Criminal Minds vs. NCIS, Plus Law & Order Face-Off!

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, we’ll launch another set of faceoffs 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 2 voting will be open for 48 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.)

    The Truth is Out There…

    Mulder FTW!

  2. Zeva says:

    Keep trying to vote for Steve Mcgarrett, but no luck.

  3. Melody says:

    No contest – Chuck and Mulder all the way.

  4. Liz says:

    Chuck definitely wins for me – I mean McGarrett is HOT, but Chuck is so much more well rounded and adorable!

  5. NJ says:

    Noooooo why would you make me choose between Mulder and Cooper? Sighhhh. But it’ll have to be Mulder, since (and at the risk of dating myself) I had the hugest crush on him when I was fourteen or so.

  6. dee says:

    Go Mulder, Go Mulder!

  7. Loni says:

    How is Chuck behind people?!

  8. AUST says:

    Mulder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All the way.

  9. Samantha says:

    Ugh, Chuck vs. McGarret? Toughest one so far! McGarret is way hotter, but Chuck is adorable and definitely better boyfriend material!

  10. Karen says:

    Come on, Zach Levi!!!

  11. Angie Ruiz says:

    Hands down, MCGARETT all the way!!! The man is the complete package!! :p

  12. Mia says:

    Agent Cooper versus Agent Mulder?! I need an ‘all of the above’ button

  13. nitemar says:


  14. Giusy says:

    Yay for Mulder!!!!
    Promise you’ll do the female version! :D

  15. Isabelle says:

    McGarrett all the way!!!!

  16. Judy says:

    McGarrett all the way. Don’t care about Chuck or the other two for that matter.

  17. Ashley says:

    Had to vote for McGarrett – the man is smokin’ hot! But having to choose between Fox Mulder and Dale Cooper? Are they trying to break our cult-TV-loving hearts?

  18. Katy says:

    Chuck vs McGarrett??? Sucks!!!! But MULDER all the way!!!!! Love Mulder so so so so so much!!!! :) But love chuck & mcgarrett equally so very tough choice!!!

  19. Stormy says:

    Boy! Those are four mugly others. Couldn’t vote for any of them.

  20. Barbara says:

    Mulder vs. Cooper? That is too hard! But i had a big crush on Cooper when i was twelve. But Mulder was my idol few years later. I would go with Cooper, he was first :)

  21. MJ says:

    I just checked out the entire player braket and almost all of the guys I voted for on round 2 are losing! I don’t understand how Jack Bauer, Jimmy McNulty and Raylan Givens lost, ugh sometimes I just don’t get people.

  22. Shannon says:

    Oh geez…this whole thing is going to come down to Mulder against Castle or Booth! I’m already dreading the decision!

  23. jules says:

    just checked out the entire bracket as well and Tony DiNozzo vs. Neal Caffrey? But they’re both so pretty!

  24. Kayla says:

    CHUCK, CHUCK, CHUCK, CHUCK, CHUCK, CHUCK!!!! Love him soooo much he can’t lose c’mon, not fair so much better

  25. V says:

    CHUCK ALL THE WAY. Seriously, if I ever met a real-life Chuck Bartowski, I’d be all. over. that.

  26. Marlene says:

    Oh come on!!! Really???? MULDER OF COURSE!!!!

  27. Plum says:

    Zachary Levi is sweet, funny and kind. What’s not to love?

  28. Karen says:

    Chuck alias Zachary Levi

  29. Nic says:

    Dale Cooper for me. He’s like… The weirdest FBI agent ever. And awesome.

    (Sorry, Mulder, I do love you)

  30. Nat says:

    I know this isn’t this bracket, but looking at the whole tournament, is anyone else as super excited as I am for the Nathan Fillion/David Boreanaz Whedon-off? (Yes, I know neither of them are as their characters from Angel and Firefly, but come on!)

  31. Belinda says:

    Chuck vs McGarrett? Why oh why do would you be so mean to make us choose. McGarret gets the vote only because it would be un-Australian of me to not choose him.

  32. Kathryn says:

    Who the heck is voting for Chuck over McGarett? That just does not compute.

  33. jane says:

    If this ends up being a contest between Booth and Mulder I’m going to have a very difficult time choosing! but those two should be the finalists!!

  34. Alexis says:

    I voted for McGarrett because the poll was about “hot” and I don’t consider Chuck “hot” . But if u asked me about the most interesting character or the best actor, then I would had gone for Chuck, no doubt. Alex is good shirtless material, but his acting is insipid.

    • Sonja says:

      The poll was not about who is “hotter”. It’s about who is more “Crushable”. And Zachary Levi aka Chuck is sweet, funny, awesome and kind => Very Crushable xD

  35. lipsticksocialism says:


  36. Hilla says:

    Mulder all the way ! (God, I love X-Files!)

  37. Anya says:


  38. Annie says:

    I loved loved loved Twin Peaks (which funnily enough David Duchovny also appeared on) but Mulder is one half of what is quite possibly, the most beautiful love story in the history of television, so he gets my vote. Zachary Levi is lovely and I think Chuck is great but I have to give it to Steve McGarrett, since he is played by Alex O’Loughlin who has the sexiest body/face/accent ever!

  39. Bob says:

    Spooky lives!

  40. O says:

    This was easy!
    McGarrett and Mulder FTW!

  41. Sara says:

    Alex O’Loughlin is too wooden to be sexy! He seems dead! He’s not an interesting man!

    • what!!!!!!! dead!!!!! im sorry do you mean someone else? Alex is totally full of life & so interesting… just vote for your guy & stop the BS coz what you said is not even close to the truth
      PS: if by wooden you mean his character as McGARRETT. HE SHOULD BE WOODEN COZ HE PLAYS A SEAL those guys are wooden in real life he’s as sweet as any good human being so your totally wrong about the guy

  42. ooooog!!! this is so easy of course McGARRETT is hotter, cuter more adorable than chuck there is no doubt…the guy has it all

  43. Vera says:

    McGarrett all the way in every way. He’s handsome, he’s intelligent & a badass!

  44. Caroline says:

    McGarret is the best. No contest. Gorgeous

  45. Rachel Russell says:

    I love watching Hawaii Five – O every Wednesday nights on 10 at 08:30pm. Especialy love Alex O’Loughlin in Hawaii Five – O. Hope it comes on next year in 2012 has well… :-)

  46. Steven says:

    HOW can anyone find this McGarrett guy more crushable than Chuck? That is just blasphemous!

    • Well... says:

      He’s more handsome, more masculine, more muscular, he can kick some major butt, he has a good sense of humor, etc…Oh, and the actor is Australian.

      That, or maybe it just comes down to personal taste.

  47. Natalie says:

    Mulder FTW!

  48. Liz B.` says:

    You’re making me choose between McGarrett and Chuck? Ugh, you break my heart.

  49. Callahan says:

    I second this.

    Chuck & Mulder.

    by the woman to convince her husband she was social
    media handles raped so they could easier manipulkate a situation.
    No social media handles matter the causes in whiich resulted in Prince’s death.

    This is the beginning of his research Pavlov got international acclaim and fame.
