  • X-Files is the reason shows like Supernatural and Fringe were allowed to be introduced to the public for consumption. Gillian Anderson is HOT (especially in the later seasons!!!). As much as I love Frige, I’ve got to go with Scully on this one.

    She is beautiful inside and out.

  • There’s no question. Fringe is just a bad knock off of The X-Files. And Scully is my hero.

  • Gillian Anderson…the woman every guy wanted to be with and every woman wanted to look like during the 90s. The most beautiful, and well developed female character portrayed on television EVER. Gillian played her so convincingly she pretty much separated Agent Scully from herself. As a devoted fan of the show I still find it hard to believe she isn’t still out there somewhere. And though I do enjoy Gillian the actress it causes great confusion to my senses at times to see her in other roles,especially as a blonde! lol so yeah SCULLY FOREVER!

    • Yeah, see its a 90′s thing. Its old, and so is she. Olivia will always be hotter and more awesome than Scully ever was!

        • Not really true. Abrams would have created all his brilliant shows somehow even without The X-Files and it would be as, if not more popular as they are now. He is a genius. I love Scully & Olivia, but have to agree that Olivia is more crushable.

          Comment by James – December 11, 2011 10:02 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Explain to me how the X-Files existing diminishes Fringe’s popularity. It should actually work in their favor rather than against. I haven’t met one person who said they won’t watch the show because the X-Files exists, but rather, gave it a chance based on that. Tell me why the first season of Fringe has higher ratings than the following seasons. When the X-Files was out they either peaked in season 4, which Fringe is in now, or season 5.

            Comment by 2shy – December 11, 2011 11:33 AM PDT  
          • Read it again, I never said it hurt the show. I said “ABRAMS WOULD HAVE CREATED THE SHOWS EVEN WITHOUT X-FILES AND IT WOULD STILL BE POPULAR”. You can’t read or something? You’re taking this somewhere else.
            The network is what is hurting the show. They moved it from a slot which had 8-12 million fans, to a Friday death slot so early on and erratic scheduling didn’t help its cause either. Again, why are you constantly talking about the show, rather than telling whether you would jump Scully or Olivia! lol!

            Comment by James – December 11, 2011 11:44 AM PDT  
          • James, considering that just about every show he has is inspired by the X-Files in some way, your point is invalid. Even Alias had X-Files overtones. I don’t see how they could be more popular if you take out one of the inspirations. Also, just so you know, the friday night dead slot has been around since the 70/80′s and the X-Files was originally there and still excelled before being moved<–another invalid point.

            But, Scully is more crushable to answer your question.

            Comment by 2shy – December 11, 2011 12:02 PM PDT  
          • No. JJ Abrams real inspirations were Steven Spielberg and all those 60′s, 70′s, 80′s sci-fi and adventure movies – so you have the invalid point there. Death slot in the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s weren’t anywhere near as competitive as it is now. Olivia > Scully!

            Comment by James – December 11, 2011 12:06 PM PDT  
          • Excuses, excuses. Explain to me why it took so long for JJ take make the series. Whether or not his real inspirations came from SS, he still was inspired by TXF in some way. Not only that, a death slot is a slot. FOX and co. was so sure the X-Files wasn’t going to make it that they gave them half a season, in which they’ve had 9 seasons, two movies, multiple games, action figures, books/essays/comics written on and about them, and so on. Point being, a show can defy the odds. Just explain to me why Fringe’s ratings are decreasing rather than increasing.

  • Sorry Fringe fans, but without a Dana Scully there would be no Olivia Dunham. Simple as that.

    • Your argument doesn’t make any sense. Scully is relevant because she helped pave the way for the present women on TV. In turn, that helped Olivia become a character.

      Comment by Brad – December 11, 2011 03:01 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I would have thought that most X-Files fans could appreciate Fringe being on, but apparently not. The two shows are similar, but also very different especially after establishing that Fringe deals with science while the X-Files deals with the paranormal. The characters are different, the story is different, so I don’t see why people are being so reductive when they say Fringe is a knock-off of the X-Files. If you think Gillian is more crushable than Anna, that’s fine, but Fringe has become a critically adored show by its own right.

    Comment by RKron – December 10, 2011 08:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • So well said. Apparently some X-Files fans did not watch the show completely, have never watched Fringe or just cannot seem to get the fact that these shows are very different in so many ways. Their argument has no merit and sounds like a broken record. You’d hope they would have something constructive to say, but this is all they have. I watched X-Files (loved it), watching Fringe now and can totally see the difference in both shows. Sad that “some” can’t.

      Comment by Amy – December 11, 2011 01:42 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Exactly! X-Files was good for its time, but compared to Fringe, it sucks! And Gillian is nowhere near as crush worthy as Anna. They both wear man pants or whatever, but Anna is just too hot in them.

      Comment by Brad – December 11, 2011 03:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • yes i agree brad,anna is too hot in the man pants,especially as fauxlivia :)

        Comment by JM – December 11, 2011 05:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Now that is blasphemous. “It was good for it’s time”, the X-Files does laps around Fringe all day and still doesn’t get tiresome. While Fringe’s ratings have been decreasing by the fourth season, the X-Files increased. Gillian is totally crush worthy and with reason. TXF has inspired and continues to inspire many shows, characters, and everyday people. Tell me how many people have written Anna about helping them get through cancer–NONE! No one can relate to an alternate reality. Gillian got respect from not only fans and critics, but awards ceremonies as well. Considering how Sci-Fi does at awards and to have her get an Emmy makes your argument invalid.

        Comment by 2shy – December 11, 2011 06:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Um, that’s because there wasn’t much of a challenge to X-Files from other network shows. It was the only one of its kind when it started. Aliens and stuff. Imo, both are awesome. But Anna really does deserve some Emmy love. She’s fantastic and is like Scully in so many ways, but better.

          Comment by Jess – December 11, 2011 07:50 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Oh and also, not many strong female characters who stood out from the norm back in the day. So, keeping in mind all that, I think Olivia is much more awesome and crushable.

          Comment by Jess – December 11, 2011 07:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Here’s the difference between GA and AT–GA made the Emmy committee nominate her through performance. They couldn’t deny her talent. Not saying that AT doesn’t deserve love, but that GA was undeniably better. The argument of not having many strong women isn’t grounds for why Scully is better, in my opinion at least. Or that it was one of kind for it’s day, that actually re-enforces my argument. The fact the viewers were willing to embrace a strong, intelligent female in a show about the paranormal speaks volumes. They could have easily have failed as the succeeded, but they didn’t. One of the reasons Fringe has succeeded is in part due to Scully and the X-Files. Viewers saw that something like that could succeed. Not only that, they still have competition in a general since. They didn’t succeed primarily for being one of a kind. And again, Sci-Fi doesn’t get the respect, so…you can like Olivia, but don’t try to undermine another show to prove your point.

            Comment by 2shy – December 11, 2011 09:49 AM PDT  
        • Okay, I’m going to deconstruct your comment here. You first start out with an opinion, which I will not argue over because you are entitled to think one show is better than another (so long as you actually watch both shows). Secondly, ratings have nothing to do with a show’s quality. Most of America watches 2 and a Half Men and Glee, does that mean these two shows are the top tier that all other shows should strive to be? Gawd no! Next you move on to the show, not the person. The X-Files may be inspiring, and Fringe creators have admitted that The X-Files as ONE of the shows that inspired them, but what does this have to do with crush-worthiness? Finally, Anna may not have been written with cancer, but that still has nothing to do with being crushable!

          • Totally agree with you RKron, Amy, Jess and Brad. Fringe & Olivia ftw.

            Comment by Cortexifan – December 11, 2011 11:20 AM PDT  
          • Rkron, I understand your point, but read the conversation and see that that wasn’t my immediate response. What was I responding to? Find that out first before you comment on what I say. Then onto the show, if you’ve read the whole thread, fans have been saying that the X-Files existence has no bearing on Fringe’s existence, which as you have commented is false. Did I say that she show sucked? No. Let me see you respond to the other people saying Olivia is better than Scully because she was in two realities–how is that crush-worthy? The reason Scully having cancer and fighting through it makes her crush worthy personality wise, because crush doesn’t always pertain to looks, is that it shows she’s not a quitter and will fight to the end. But, even without rating (not necessarily comparing Fringe)The X-Files was still a quality show. It wrote the character as adults with flaws and not sexualized to get viewers and asked difficult question–well written most importantly.

            Comment by 2shy – December 11, 2011 11:40 AM PDT  
          • Fringe asks even more difficult questions, never sexualized its characters either. Yes, you have said the show and the lead character sucked, in your own way in other comments. Watch the season 2 episode – “PETER” – one of the best episodes in sci-fi history. And if you want, watch episode 7 in season 4 – “Wallflower” – I really recommend this since it doesn’t deal with the main arc, per se. A nobody, a common man who has no bearing on any of the main characters will make you cry your heart out. That’s the complexity of the writing on the show which makes you fall in love with, relate to and be compassionate towards all of its characters.

            PS: “The most beautiful” scene. Dammmit, that really made me tear up and I don’t do tears!!

            Comment by James – December 11, 2011 11:53 AM PDT  
          • James, don’t put words in my mouth. We can agree to disagree on which show is better and asks more difficult questions. But, my response is in response to someone trying to undermine that X-Files’ impact. I started watching the show after it was canceled, so that point is invalid–not yours, but the other person’s.

            Comment by 2shy – December 11, 2011 12:06 PM PDT  
    • I’m an hardcore Phile and I like Fringe. I can see the similarities and the differences between the two shows. Dana Scully is still so relevant. Although I really like Ms. Dunham, she hasn’t reached Dana Scully material yet. So yeah, I vote Scully. But I hope Fringe lasts many years.

      Comment by Jolie – December 11, 2011 03:08 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It works both ways, bud. There are many Fringe fans who are commenting who are dismissing The X-Files outright because it is “old” and “ended a decade ago”. Seems neither group can appreciate the other. I am a huge fan of both shows; I adore both Scully and Olivia, but in my opinion, Scully set the standard and the bar. She will always be my favourite female TV character.

      Comment by Mcat – December 11, 2011 08:15 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yea…Scully set the standard, but X-Files got enough recognition and then some. So, I’m going with Olivia and my Fringe world.

  • Certainly who will win this poll will be Dana Scully, with all the merits. She is an icon of science fiction, is a “Cult” Globally, beautiful, talented, super-stylish, with a look of “warm hearts” is the Scully, our muse forever. But since I am a fan of Fringe, I must be very happy and proud with the performance, in this poll, our beloved and wonderful Olivia Dunham. She, with her natural beauty and elegance, marked its presence here with great distinction and brilliance, making our hearts of fans, exploding, vibrate with great pride and passion.

    Bravo Scully, and also, Bravo Olivia!

    Comment by Gold – December 11, 2011 10:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • “Sometimes looking for extreme possibilities makes you blind to the probable explanation right in front of you.”

    Scully is an icon, she’s a strong woman, sensitive, loyal, complex, a woman with temper, a fighter, a characer who would go far and beyond for friends and family, she’s not perfect but that woman taught me more than only those who watched the show can fathom.
    And if we talk about beautiful, there is no freaking question that Dana Scully can take your breath away at any time, with every movement or microexpression she makes.

    The writers made her wonderful, and Gillian Anderson made her unique.

    “All lies lead to the truth.”

    And the truth (in this topic) is, that Dana Scully is the best female character ever created.

    When I watched a few episodes of Fringe. I could only get one emotion from Olivia: insignificance. Gasping at everything on your way really doesn’t make a character that good. Plus, her face is just annoying.

    I don’t care who wins, because this is just basically a poll, I just wanted to make a point… fans vs fans… I know for sure there are more X-Philes out there than whatever they call them fans of Fringe.

  • Well if you had stuck around after a few episodes, you would have found that Olivia is much more complex than what you are blabbering about. She’s all that Scully was and more. X-Files was a conspiracy show. Of course it got more fans, because that’s all anybody does – speculate whether aliens exist amidst us or not. Hell, LOST was the X-Files of last decade. It was much better than X-Files. X-Files was a product of its time which came across as relevant because of all the secrecy of the US govt.
    What Scully did for you, I respect that. But you can’t diss on Anna’s Olivia. Watch all three seasons (now 4th running) and get back to us.
    PS: This poll is about who is hotter & how much we want hook up with the characters, not to hold hands and cry. Plain & Simple!

      • Yeah, I bet she was more complex and entertaining, yadda yadda yadda. I got bored reading your comment.
        I said Scully is way more beautiful than plain annoying face. So I think I made that point clear.
        If you’re really as sure as I am about the characters and the shows, then I leave you to it. I really don’t care. Now I’m gonna go and hold hands with my fellow fans.

    • Superficially speaking, Scully is hotter, especially based on the picture they posted in comparison with Olivia.

      Also, the X-Files was more than about aliens–clearly, if you did watch the show, it wasn’t for long. Actually, there are fans of Fringe who have watched all four seasons and still believe Scully is better physically and mentally.

  • Scully gets my vote, but I’m biased!

  • Ok, I know I’ve been butting heads with people and saying some underhanded things. But, people make up your minds: what criteria do we base on being crush worthy? One person says the other one is hotter, and then someone points out one of the characters actions and personality traits. Another person says the character is admirable and intelligent and so on, so the other person says this poll is based on looks. Which is it? Personally, it is both for me, but I can understand why it may be one over the other for some.

    Looks: Scully
    Personality/Intelligence/Work ethic/Deeds: Scully

    We should be at least consistent on our criteria of what is considered crush-worthy.

    I can admit when someone looks better than another person. If this was Beckett, Benson, Ziva, or some other person, I would say crush-worthy. But, based on the posted picture in this poll, Olivia’s picture is very unflattering in that is the only one we are to go by. Not to say she is ugly, because she isn’t, but in comparison, Scully looks better.

    • You do know there is GOOGLE right?
      If not: ANNA TORV – http://www.hairstylesnew2012.tk/resimler/anna-torv-2011-hair-styles-1.jpg

      Looks: Olivia.
      Personality/Intelligence/Work ethic/Deeds: Olivia

      • Really? Geez.
        You REALLY should google Gillian Anderson then.

      • James, re-read my post, I said “based on the picture in this poll” meaning I knew other ones existed, but on this specific picture, there is no contest. Actually, I did google her and came to the same conclusion. Personally, I just think Scully looks better.

        • Still don’t think she is beautiful. I have seen a whole season of X-Files btw.

          • Just the season or the series? For certain people it depends. But, even then you’ll say the same thing. lol

          • I;m sure I will. haha. I watched the very first season. I was too young to even think about watching X-Files back when it ended. Watched season last year and got a bit bored. Ditched it around 20th episode, I think.

            Comment by James – December 11, 2011 12:25 PM PDT  
          • That’s the point–you watched the first season. Comparing the conservative fashion of both era’s, the 90′s look bad in comparison. But, that doesn’t make Scully any less stunning. As the series progresses, she looks more and more beautiful. I believe you are biased by Fringe goggles as far as looks is concerned. I can admit when the competition is tough, but Olivia isn’t.

          • You have to watch the whole season 1 of Fringe to really get what makes it that special. I believe you will love it if you give it a chance. I love old movies, but just couldn’t get into X-Files. I truly think Scully isn’t all that beautiful. Anyways, agree to disagree. lol. Olivia ftw, unless she goes up against Kate Beckett. That’d be horrifying. They are kinda juggling b/w top 2 favs of mine.

          • James, special as far as what? If we are basing this solely on looks, I don’t need to watch a season or even an episode. Now if you are talking about personality affecting perception of looks, that is a different story. But, we are talking about LOOKS here. Just this discussion in particular.

          • Oh, I veered off the convo there. I was talking about the show in my last comment since you haven’t seen it. Give Fringe, the show, a chance. You may like it.

            Comment by James – December 11, 2011 12:53 PM PDT  
          • I never said I wouldn’t give it a chance–just not this week. I’m very busy. But, just like Fringe fans say you have to stick with the series, you have to stick with the X-Files as well.

      • You realize that this poll is about the character she plays, right?

        Comment by Audrey – December 11, 2011 03:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I think all of it counts, not only physically, but also how much you like a character for her actions and her wits. I didn’t think of this poll as shallow. Having a crush doesn’t just mean you like a person because of her/his looks. To each his own, anyway.
