Bones and Isles Geeks Clash, Unforgettable and SVU Stars Collide in 'Law-Enforcement Crushes'

A crime is about to be committed: Two of the four women in Round 2, Day 7  of our Ultimate Female Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament are just days away from being eliminated — and thereby will fail to crack the Top 16 of our single-elimination competition.

T.J. Hooker-Silk Stalkings Face-Off, Hawaii Five-0 Vs. Prime Suspect as ‘Cop Crushes’ Continues

We’ve got Bones‘ Temperance Brennan vs. Rizzoli & Isles‘ Maura Isles, and Law & Order: SVU‘s Olivia Benson vs. Unforgettable‘s Carrie Wells.

And, of course, in the single-elimination world of the TVLine Thunderdome, two crime-fighters will enter, but only one will leave!

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, in fact, we’ll launch another set of bouts that will test the strength of your character allegiances. 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 72 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

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

    • You dont’t watch NCIS? Never? Ever? You never saw Sasha during 3 years of NCIS? You’re lying through your teeth, typically obsessed & deranged Bones fans. Your fat actress can’t hold a candle to Sasha Alexander.

  • Would have totally voted for Sasha if it was as Kate Todd…

  • Totally Temperance Brennan!!!This character couln’t be more perfect :)

  • I have to wonder why anyone would have any type of “crush” on Temperance Brennan. Forget that both Deschanels look like dead-behind-the-eyes proto-humans (there is something unreal about their look), the character is socially inept (except when it suits the writers to decide she is not) and often emotionally hurtful.

    But what I am not enjoying is that this tournament doesn’t have the photo bracket from Day One. It just seems lazier than the one for the men.

      • Why? Because he stated his honest and true opinion? Emily has the hugest face I have ever seen and she’s not particularly “pretty” to me. Nothing you can do about that.
        How about you go play in traffic?

  • Brennan forever. Her eyes, her smile, her brains… I mean, who could not have a chrush on her? She’s perfect even being that socially awkward. I love her.

    Comment by Mari – December 8, 2011 02:53 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Are you kidding? The Brennan is already rocking Sasha. She deserves it. Emily is a great actress and often the best in the series. I love it. I love Bones! :}

    • I do not know who Sasha is, but no matter who it is, Brennan is smart, cute, “clumsy” socially. She is a sweetheart!
      Not to mention the appearance. She has an unearthly beauty. Those eyes, that smile, beautiful!

      • Yo Lesbians! Do you Bones fangirls listen to yourself speaking? You’re pathologically ‘in love’ with a woman, a masculine woman for that matter. You need therapy pronto.

        Comment by justified – December 8, 2011 04:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • First: just because you say you find a woman beautiful doesn’t mean you are a lesbian.
          Second: Masculine? really…oh god, we may need therapy, but you need to check yout sight.

  • Tempie is the best! She is so brilliant and kick-@ss!

    Comment by BonesForever – December 8, 2011 06:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Emily Deschanel is atrocious; looks-wise and acting wise. Which is why I’m surprised that she’s winning over Sasha Alexander who, in my opinion, beats her in both departments. But whatever. Bones has been going on for much longer than Rizzoli & Isles so of course, it would have a larger fanbase. That’s their only advantage.

    Still voted for Sasha/Isles anyway.

  • I love both Maura & Brennan and both actresses (Sasha & Emily)are fantastic!! Tough decision but i’ll go with Dr. Isles this time…

  • Go Brennan. She’s the best character now on television.

    Comment by Bonesfan – December 9, 2011 09:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • You obviously don’t watch much TV only Bones. Because there are SEVERAL female characters on Tv right now TEN TIMES BETTER than Bones who’s obnoxious and not believable. Only irritating with her robotic speech pattern and her I’m a genius, I’m extraordinary attitude while doing the most idiotic things possible, like walking hugely pregnant right into a tornado just to scorn her partner.
      You want a kick ass while vulnerable female character? Check out Olivia Dunham from Fringe.
      You want a complex, empathetic while kick ass woman? Check out Olivia Benson from L&O:SVU.
      You want a highly professional, brilliant, stretching the boundaries of good&evil woman? Check out Patty Hewes from Damages.
      Go watch some good TV. Stop worshiping a bland actress and her offensive character.

      • Oh, sorry, maybe I should have wrote this “I think she’s the best character now on tv”. Relax, ok? That was my opinion, if you don’t like ok, not everyone share the same opinion.
        And for your information I do watch other shows
        -I love Olivia in Fringe.
        -I love Jess on New Girl.
        -I love Lily and Robin on HIMYM.
        -I love Gloria on Modern Family.
        -I loved Buffy and I still do, as well as all the girls of Friends.
        And I could go on… It just happens that my favourite show over all is Bones and I love Brennan and how Emily acts. And if you don’t like it that’s fine, I respect it, so do the same for me and leave me alone.

        • I just started watching Bones about a month ago by accident. I love the show so much that I had to buy each year that it was on. I think the show is funny also.

          Comment by fan – December 10, 2011 03:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • No surprises here.Benson,Brennan and their established shows and characters win easily,even after throwing in Montgomery’s work on Without a Trace to establish comparative longevity.Ditto with Alexander on NCIS.No real’kick-ass’status yet for either challenger,winners’bonafides evident in their body of work.Next round’s matchups more interesttng.Benson falls to lovely sexy Rizzoli,Brennan in a squeaker against Abby (think she’s far too highly seeded),both reach Final Four,their match looks like a tossup currently…

  • Bones. Last episode she was talking about her swollen breasts, and how they’ve grown 2 cup sizes during her pregnancy. And how the squinterns “need to pay more attention to detail.”

  • My Vote is for Emily. The first time I saw those eyes I was hooked. Olivia is hot too, but Brennan can do an autopsy on me anytime. Preferably when I’m deceased.
