  • I wonder if the actors feel objectified by these polls?

    I kinda feel sorry for the losers. Even though we are voting for “characters” and not actors.

  • im going with what zivafanaticcc said on page two

  • i think we should all go with what zivafanaticc said and ignore micheal. he obviously just wants attention and we’re giving it to him. lets just ignore him so he can grow up. if he was a true ncis fan, he would respect all aspects of the show AND the characters. and especially not be recist against them. if he wants trouble he can go get ripped up in the CBS forums. not here. we all love ziva and he is the only one stirring up trouble. we all know the truth about ncis and ziva so why should we care what you think? thats awesome buddy. good to have your backwards racist opinion. but please, go share it somewhere else. it doesnt belong with ziva lovers.

      • hahah it entertains me to read your little hissy fits. and being a tiva fan has nothing to do with who is more crushable. i am an NCIS fan. i dont disrespect any part of the show or the characters. and at least i can use correct grammar. you can say what you want, i know you have free speech so dont talk to me like im an idiot. be careful what you say to other people dear boy. because karma dear, is goig to come back and bite you on the butt. say what you want but starting now, no one is listening or agreeing. have a wonderful day chap.

      • Well, no one accuses anti Ziva people of being racist. But your comment on page one claiming Ziva would be an Iraqui (she isn’t) who hates Americans was just racist.
        There is nothing to discuss about it.
        Freedom of speech. Yeah sure, but stick with the truth.

        Does it refer to a certain CIA-Agent on NCIS? Or is it your real name (of course minus the Ray).

  • Boycott Crazy Michael.

    If we ignore him – maybe he will slink away.

    And even this posting is more recognition than he/she deserves.

    • Poor MIchael! I used to be a nasty smelly messy ANTI like you. I changed my mind because I realized I was delusional. Of course, my medication has helped me to realize the truth. AND THE TRUTH IS I LOVE ZIVA! My doctors said it was a lack of hormones factored with my creeping old age. I am glad I found help and saw the light. I have given up on Tibbs. One day you will too!

      • This quite possibly is the most mean-spirited, nasty, hateful and vile comment I have ever read, anywhere. And I have lurked on the CBS Forum. And people call anti Ziva fans nasty. It’s posts like the above that show the pro Ziva fans in a really bad light. I know most fans of the character aren’t that nasty, but unfortunately everyone who loves her gets dumped into the same pile. Why is it OK to be so insulting to a real person for not liking a pretend person? Don’t take it so personally. Relax and enjoy the different opinions. It is possible to have civil discussions with all sides of any subject.

        • The rabid Tiva/Ziva fans always turn it personal. They really can’t see the difference between attacking real people and attacking a fictional character. There are some very clear-headed Tiva and/or Ziva fans, but they’re pretty much outnumbered or don’t want to get into anything.

          Comment by Let's clear this up – December 20, 2011 02:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Ziva is numero uno!!!!!

            Comment by woodcatss – December 20, 2011 02:47 PM PDT  
          • Thank you, I ship Tiva & adore Ziva – but I am loathe to be lumped with the more radical shippers. There are extremist in both groups – pros & antis.

            It’s the extremist on both sides that turn this ugly. I would like to think if they were out of the picture, the fandom would be a more enjoyable place.

            We could respectfully agree to disagree & move on down the road.

            Comment by Jules – December 20, 2011 02:57 PM PDT  
          • Actually, the first personal remarks were made by Pepper and Jimbob yesterday, both of whom appear to be of the anti-Ziva persuasion. Just thought I should clear that up, Let’s clear this up. And I think JJ is lovely, but Ziva gets my vote this round.

            Comment by lizzie – December 20, 2011 08:04 PM PDT  
          • Outnumbered? If that were true, Ziva would be losing and Cote wouldn’t have gotten contracted for two more seasons this year (and wouldn’t have made it through the first round). Ziva will make it to the semi-finals. That is an accomplishment and proves that a lot of people love the character. So no, we aren’t outnumbered because we beat fandoms plus Ziva-antis. That’s just a fact. I am not saying she’s gonna win this because Kate Beckett is more popular than Ziva. But still, we aren’t outnumbered by antis at all.

            And now a general comment:

            Gosh, guys it’s almost Christmas… this is just a poll. Not even a spoiler. I think we should calm down (including me).
            I am going to quote Chris Waild (NCIS writer) here:
            “ChrisWaild Christopher J. Waild
            #NCIS fans may have their differences, but during this holiday season I think we can all come together in the spirit of #JimmySweatervest”

          • Proof positive that you either have bad reading comprehension or you just skim and pick out words that suit you. I said the clear-headed Tiva fans are outnumbered (meaning outnumbered by the psychos). Good thing one of those clear-headed fans understood what I was saying (hence the clear-headed epithet).

            Comment by Let's clear this up – December 21, 2011 08:21 AM PDT  
          • Sorry, I am not a native speaker. Somehow I comprehended it wrong. Thanks for clearing it up “let’s clear this up”.
            I am taking it back.
            Well, I am not really taking it back because it is the truth, but you know…in that context.
            Merry Christmas to all of those who love NCIS

  • Ziva rocks!

    Comment by zivaluvr – December 20, 2011 12:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • These polls are clearly about the shows & not who is better looking! You only have to look at the men’s version to prove this, I mean come on there is no way in a million years that leroy jethro gibbs is better looking than derek morgan! Give me a break, the guy is twice is age! And oh look what show he is in…NCIS surprise surprise! But anyway, this poll isn’t very realistic and JJ is way prettier than Ziva :)

    Comment by H_C – December 20, 2011 12:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That’s YOUR opinion thank you, I find JJ good looking (and the actress when she is blonde and have long hair) but she doesn’t have the “thing” that would make her look beautiful and gorgeous to my eyes. Ziva/Cote is absolutely stunning, she is gorgeous with and without any make up, you can do whatever you want to her hair and she is sill gonna be gorgeous and she has that thing that makes her crushable even to woman, something in her eyes, something in the way the is, I really think she is one of the most beautiful actresses on TV if not the most beautiful.

      • Well yes it is my opinion…that’s why I gave it…I am a woman & I’m really not seeing the attraction to ziva (…in my opinion, AJ Cook is pretty full stop, has nothing to do with what colour hair she has, god I wish I had even the slightest resemblance to her!

  • Both women are drop dead gorgous. No arguing that point.

    But being crushable is more than having a pretty face. It is having that little extra something that sets you apart from all the other pretty faces and Ziva David has that – in spades.

    Ziva IS the most crushable.

    Comment by GG – December 20, 2011 01:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Really – it’s okay for fans not to like or vote for Ziva – chill out. Stop being so nasty.

    Comment by AKA – December 20, 2011 01:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Did you even take a look at the comments? You can vote for JJ if you think she is more cushable, it’s your opinion, you have yours and your reasons and we have ours and our reasons, but comments like the ones Michael posted are out of line, it’s not about who he chose to vote, it’s insulting, racist and provoking.

      Comment by Julie – December 21, 2011 04:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love NCIS and Ziva but honestly I think Kate from Castle will win.

    Comment by Jess – December 20, 2011 01:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

    • you can comment as often as you want – and I am sure some of that is being done on BOTH sides, but you can only vote once every 12 hours, that’s the real story here.

      somehow I am not a big fan of this poll-thing going on here anymore.
      I get the feeling this is more anti-Ziva people vs. pro-Ziva people plus a few real JJ fans poll-thingy here.

      I agree. Both women are incredibly beautiful.

    Comment by TX Zivaism Fan – December 21, 2011 07:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • TX Ziva fan – you’re right. I love Ziva’s “Colloquial Snafus”. But there was one that Chis threw in there for NBK though: she said “sautéed” when trying to diganose the problem with the engine and Gibbs corrected her (on Tony’s behalf lol) by saying “fried”.

      My guess is that we will see even less Zivaisms now that NCIS is in the final home stretch as a series. After all this time, she is supposed to gradually become more and more “Americanized” and therefore has learned more of the slang terminology – at least that it appears they are doing with her character.
