    So the bracket says Gibbs got more votes in the last round. What gives?

  2. Sally says:


  3. David says:

    Castle has this in the bag

  4. Emily says:

    Oh, no contest. DiNozzo all the way!

    • Saint Alicia says:

      Word. Just look at that pic–HOT!

    • Bonnie D says:

      I agree! Tony is VERY hot! Love his attitude and sense of humor!

      • Brooke Adams says:

        Seriously, we talk about these men like their on-screen personalities are their real personalities…You have to look for the twinkle in the eye, a sign of good humor, and laugh lines around the eyes and mouth….They’re both handsome men, but I would prefer looking deeply into Tony DiNozzo’s eyes every morning….if I were younger!

    • cristy says:

      YES…DiNOZZO! the other dude is not attractive at all!

      • Ella Sander says:

        The other guy’s name is CASTLE. And he is attractive: humour, smile, look, deductions, one-liners. He does have everything. Watch the show, then come back and let’s talk again about it. {Besides, if I prefer Castle, I’m fond of NCIS too, and DiNozzo is amazing.}

  5. Dee says:

    Forget it, NCIS/DiNozzo people. Those sci fi “Firefly” geeks will spam this poll 24/7 until it’s over.

  6. Lisa says:

    DiNozzo, by a mile!

  7. Courtney says:

    CASTLE!!! <3 Tony is hot but Rick is my main man.

  8. Mcat says:

    Hardest one for me yet! I LOVE Tony, but I had to remain loyal to Captain Tightpants. <3

  9. Nicole says:

    Here my captain ! I have your back !
    GO Nathan!!!!
    Michael is really cute . I loved him in Dark Angel and I saw him once in the airport. But, I have a crush in Castle !!!

  10. Kate says:

    Castle all the way!

  11. Kirstin says:

    Don’t hate just cause us Firefly geeks have such an awesome guy to vote for :P

    • comicon says:

      You do realize you’re not voting for the guy from Firefly.. you’re voting for either;
      Richard Castle; the crime writer and partner-in-crime with NYPD Officer Kate Beckkett.
      Tony DiNozzo; former Homicide detective now Federal Agent for NCIS, senior field agent on the Major Case Response Unit.
      … Right?

      • dragoncon says:

        You do get that it’s an internet poll and people can vote by whatever criteria they want, right? I mean, that’s great that you want the sanctity of the spirit of the poll to be noted by it just ain’t gonna happen.

      • Flyingbuttter says:

        OMG, DiNozzo’s fans are as sanctimonious and boring than his title and his character. Thank god he’s going to lose. Go Castle!

        • Courtney says:

          OMG too bad your vote got wasted on a loser and your english teacher wasted her time trying to teach you grammar. Love my Tony!!

      • hedgi hufflepuff says:

        Richard Castle: famous writer, really, really nice guy, wants to help as many people as possible and help solve the murder of the woman he love’s mother.
        Anthony Dinozzo: what you said( I stopped watching a two season back), but as of the first 7 season, rather fickle, a nice guy mostly, who enjoys pulling rather nasty pranks on his geeky( and therefore awesome) co worker. more than a little sexist for the first few seasons.

  12. michele says:

    Dinozzo and ncis all the way

  13. Nerwen Aldarion says:


  14. cher says:

    I love both shows and like both characters/actors but Castle is just oh so crushable. Fillion/Castle FTW!

  15. Lisa says:

    Castle, hands down.

  16. itzshirley says:


  17. Kate says:

    Castle vs NCIS

    Firefly vs Dark Angel
    Michael Weatherly has my vote both times! But mainly for DINOZZO!

  18. Emma says:

    The other guy is way hotter but Castle is still going to win because of Nathan Fillion’s insane cult like following who are pretty much going to spend their free time (aka all day) voting in this poll.

    • Inge says:

      Of course you will spend your whole day here. when will you Castle fans will play fair!! Ugh!!! you guys are the reason I don’t watch Castle the worse Fandom there is.

      • Castle fans everywhere. says:

        So sorry, you must be mistaking us for Supernatural fans. Cause they aren’t insane at all …

        Castle actually has a fandom that cares about the show. Worst fandom? How about best cast and crew to be fans of?

        • LauraC. says:

          We care about the show because it IS a fantastic show! The cast and crew are all talented in bringing these characters to life in a way that has us aching for for more each week!

      • Hannah says:

        Okay, so if you’re going to bash us, please use proper grammar, capitalization and punctuation. Also, we can only vote once. We are playing fair.

        • lolifin says:

          Lol! some fans will invoke unfairness, when Weatherly himself said to go vote for him on his twitter, no less, that shows how much the guy values himself. Hollywood syndrome.

          • NCISDar says:

            Did you see him say “go vote for me” on Twitter, or are you just repeating the lie someone told you? He did not ask anyone to vote for him.

          • lolifin says:

            He retweeted on his channel someone who said to vote for him. He wouldn’t say to vote for him so he used one of his fans. Even worse. Talk about sportmanship! LOL.
            Check his twit 11 nov.

          • M says:

            Ummm… Did you see that Nathan Fillion did the same thing? They both seem to be having fun with it on twitter, going back and forth. Other stars have done the same thing for other trivial voting things such as this. It’s all in good fun.

          • Surreal says:

            Both boys are having fun with this. Nathan has posted pics of Michael lounging in a hammock saying he’s “hard at work” and Michael has posted pics of “Nathan” sporting a rather fetching neck tie.

            They know each other and they know the true value of a poll like this (absolutely zip – bar giving a bit of pleasure to fans).

            So they are having fun… good on them!

      • Emma says:

        For the record, I was saying that the other guy should win but he’s not because the Firefly/Castle fans are crazy. I’m not in camp Fillion. I mean, sure he’s cute but there’s no way he looks better than Michael Weatherly.

      • Jess N says:

        I’m sorry, have you met the Criminal Minds fan base? They’re just as insane as the cases on their show.

      • MelindaB says:

        Seriously?!? You don’t watch a show because you don’t like the fans? Silly me–I base my viewing on whether I enjoy a show or not. Who knew I was doing it wrong all this time? Yeah, *Castle* fans look like the obsessed wackos.

      • SparksNight says:

        Excuse me, you can’t vote more than once in case you haven’t noticed, so STFU. Also, worst* fandom. Which is completely untrue.
        And yes, miss out on a great show because you hate their fandom for no concrete reason. That makes sooo much sense.

    • curt says:

      But why spend all day here if you can’t vote more than once? And yeah, gonna go with the Captain here, should I feel ashamed or what? Didn’t get your tone exactly

    • ISpeakTheTruth says:

      Love the bitterness that Fillion fans bring out of those not smart enough to like him. “/

      • ISpeakTheTruthToo says:

        We are not bitter. We are telling the truth.
        And we were ok till you guys started bothering us

        • ISpeakTheTruth says:

          Nice try at an insult. It was as weak as the wrists of the ugly dude you voted for. Can’t even come up with a clever s/n either. *yawn* #pathetic

      • Lolislol says:

        How is that? I prefer NCIS to Castle, but I prefer Castle to Tony? DiNozzo’s fans were the first to strike here. Bybye Tony.

  19. Inge says:

    Sorry for all the DiNozzo fans but you better give up Castle/Firefly fans will spam this poll 24/7.

    Next time a poll without Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion)PLEASE!! Then we see who wins fair.

    My vote go’s to Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) of course!!

    • blah blah blah says:

      You can only vote once. If Castle fans spam this poll 24/7 it won’t matter. It might be better to not cry about it, especially before the poll even closes…

    • Raven says:

      WOW, already setting up an excuse for when you loose. Guess it’s too hard to just accept defeat. And it’s true – you can only vote once. So I guess your excuse falls flat as your…… lol

    • MyConclusion says:

      My conclusion is that all the people saying we (castle fans) are spamming the poll are Bones fans and just cant deal with the fact that Castle won against Booth.

      • Ashley says:

        hey I take offense to this comment im a big time bones fan and that last poll was hard but i chose castle so you cant blame bones fans for blind ncis fans

  20. Kim R says:

    …kill me now…… :)

  21. hap says:

    Never seen NCIS, the guy is cute. Captain Hammer FTW! Oh sorry, it’s Castle

  22. jannet says:

    From the Netherlands: Tony :) <3

  23. shannan says:

    DiNozzo!of course

  24. Liz says:

    DiNozzo!! Of course! Could you doubt the income??

  25. Sandy P says:

    DiNozza for sure, there’s no contest. Tony is by far, the HOTTEST!

  26. Michelle says:

    Tony DiNizzo…now and always!

  27. Swarley says:

    Damn , i like both … :o

    Hard choice :/

  28. Luz greed says:

    Denozo for sure

  29. Lisa says:

    Tony, Tony, Tony ♥

  30. Ru says:

    DiNozzo- hands down

  31. Susan says:

    Tony – no contest!

  32. Deborah says:

    Really….choose between “Castle” and “DiNozzo”??? I can’t…..want them both lol lol

  33. mary says:

    Dinozzo all the way

  34. Sylvia Melendez says:

    DiNozzo wins by a land slide Castle can’t hold a candle to him. ;)

  35. Mayra Arias says:

    Dinozzo :)

  36. Lin hendrickson says:

    That would be Castle! What a hunk!

  37. itta trejo says:

    My vote is for DiNozzo of course!

  38. mr H. says:

    <3 dinozzo <3 for ever !!!!

  39. Tena says:

    GAH!!! I have to choose BETWEEN them????

  40. techkim says:

    WHAT FireFly captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds is not getting more votes? Come on people!

  41. Tim Parnell says:

    TONY RULES. He is the ultimate in male agent in any department.

    • nickster says:

      then how come he needs a whole team to solve a case every time, and 7 times out of ten it’s not even him but Gibbs, McGee, Ziva or even Abby? Castle manages to solve the case- and 9/10 it’s him that finds the final clue- with the help of a much smaller team, and hardly ever needs forensics to solve it.

  42. Mayita says:

    Dinozzo el mejor

  43. Tonia says:

    I wouldn’t stay mad at either one of them for very long! :)

  44. TrAvIeSa4u says:

    DiNoZZo for sure!

  45. christa says:

    Tony!! He’s sooooo hot!

  46. Gaye says:

    Tony’s cute but Rick is totally HOT!

  47. Donna says:

    Tony all day!!

  48. Dionne says:

    Dinozzo all the way!

  49. di nozzo says:

  50. isabel says:

    Definitely DiNozzo!!!!
