  • Kate is lovely, but Ziva is gorgeous. Ziva captures my attention like no other female character ever has. Please don’t pay any attention to the 5 or 10 people who hang out on the internet to bash Ziva at every opportunity. They are not representative of the 10s of millions of fans worldwide who love Ziva!

  • Who is taking anything seriously? Did you miss the sarcasm or just not get it ? Would not even vote doesn’ t change my opinin on who is crushworthy, other people’s choices aren’t going to affect that I don’t need a silly poll to know my law enforcement crush is in the military, works as a police officer and puts his life on the line every day…….not a fictional character playing pretend. God Bless the real life heroes and hope you all have a happy new year

  • I don’t really watch Castle, but I loooove Firefly and vote Beckett. Yep, my logic might be a bit on a twisted side

  • Senior “may” be on Team Tiva but Junior isn’t. His reaction was funny. Technically, Tiva could also be Tim + Tiva. I know people call that ship McGiva, but wouldn’t it be hysterical if TPTB gave us Tiva, but it was Tim and Ziva?

    Comment by Crazy – December 26, 2011 09:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • then you’d see a mass exodus of hardcore fans.

  • Senior “may” be on Team Tiva, but going by Junior’s reaction, he isn’t. Technically, Tim and Ziva could be called Tiva, even though fans can that pairing McGiva. It would be hysterical if TPTB gave us Tiva but it was Tim+Ziva.

  • Hands down Ziva! Never mess w/ the best. That’s one women to never mess with. She kicks butt & looks good doing it!

  • Woah, where’s the new votes for Ziva coming from? As I just finished voting, Beckett was 67.32%, and I refresh several times, and it decreases to 67.06% within 3 minutes! Though this is small change, but to make that much of a change, you need a lot of people to vote in a short amount of time. Yet, the comments area is still at 535?

    • Not everyone who votes – comments. Good grief, some people have the reasoning skills & common sense of field mice.

  • …AND THE CHEATING OF NCIS FANS BEGINS! How unusual! In 10 minutes up with more than 1 percent.

    Comment by NJ – December 26, 2011 10:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • “Well, hey, that’s not nice to say. Can’t you put it any other way?” …as Michael Weatherly wrote in one of his songs. Speaking of Michael , he tweeted the link to this poll and after that, Ziva started gaining. So no cheating going on that I can see.

      Comment by NCISDar – December 26, 2011 01:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Michael hasn’t tweeted it, his last couple of tweets were a Merry Christmas to Pauley and a few general Merry Christmas messages. He hasn’t been on Twitter all day today. Brian tweeted the link earlier today.

        Comment by NoChance – December 26, 2011 02:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I’m sorry to disagree, NoChance. Michael retweeted a message with the TVline link at 12:44pm Central Time (10:44 PST). I get text notification of his tweets only so I have an exact time stamp for them.

          Comment by NCISDar – December 26, 2011 02:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • actually, he did retweet the link to the poll. You might want to go back and recheck your timeline – it’s on mine.

          Comment by yeschance – December 26, 2011 02:31 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Thanks. I don’t get notified of Re-tweets unless someone has retweeted something I tweeted.

            Comment by NoChance – December 26, 2011 02:48 PM PDT  
        • oh yes he did. Maybe he is hiding his tweets from you because YOU ARE A HATER!!!!

          Comment by tonylover – December 26, 2011 02:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Was that really necessary? An honest question and an understandable reason as to why NoChance missed the tweet, and you have to get snarky? Who is the real Hater here?

            Comment by NCISDar – December 26, 2011 02:52 PM PDT  
          • What does not finding someone crushable have to do with hating? Only living thing I hate is are Palmetto bugs. And why attack me by yelling? I didn’t do that to you and won’t.

            Comment by NoChance – December 26, 2011 02:52 PM PDT  
          • Thank you NCISDar, you’re my kind of fan. We might have a different opinion but we can still be nice to each other. I just didn’t see the re-tweet and I misunderstood thinking Michael had started a tweet on this subject. I only have my settings set to get an email if someone retweets one of my tweets.

            Comment by NoChance – December 26, 2011 03:31 PM PDT  
    • NJ – your right I believe. Some one or ones of the NCIS fans are using some means of doctoring the poll votes again – but they are being more subtle about it this time. I

      NJ you are right I believe – the poll is being doctored yet again! They are just being more subtle about it this time. You didn’t really believe that after what happened with Sarah that someone/ones of the cheat/cheaters among the NCIS fans would allow Stana to win did you? People questioned it during the last poll, and got sworn at and abuse from MCIS fans for calling it. TV line should have sorted this after the last thread Sarah/Ziva – and come out and said

      Who is Michael Weatherly and what does he have to do with all this?

      Comment by Peacenotwarplease – December 26, 2011 06:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Oh right, I just found out who Michael Weatherley is, I apologise to him. But after the furore in the Sarah/Ziva SF, and the NCIS website that described how to cheat – I had my doubts. So I will leave it there and say no more – SOZ!

  • I wonder how this vote would be going if TPTB didn’t turn Ziva into a traitor and have her assault/accuse Tony of murder at the end of season 6?

    I miss early Ziva, I really, really do.

  • Everyone take a chill pill!!! If Kate wins, Ziva fans will still think Ziva deserved to win and that she is prettier. If Ziva wins, people will still think Kate was prettier and should have one.. This is a fun poll, calm your flippers!!! Good day sir:)

    All.that extra time for the voting bots…
    Still, Kate gets my vote.

    • Are you seriously accusing tvline on loading the dice so to speak?

      Come on, this craziness has gone on long enough. I hope tvline has learned from this and allows voting only no comments in their next poll.

      Comments are ugly based & hurtful.

      • Huh, maybe it has something to do with folks getting home from the holiday. I just got home from traveling, I just voted. I am sure there are plenty of others just like me.

        Why do people cry foul when they lose a little ground? Think of a horse race – sometimes the winner is the last out of the gate. It’s not about who starts strong, but who finishes strong.

    • Just went through Michael and Diane’s tweets dating back to Friday (before this poll started) and can’t find any tweets with the link to this poll. Saw Brian’s earlier today.

      • Just in case you didn’t see my reply above – Michael retweeted a message with the TVline link, so that may be why you didn’t see it. I get text message notification of all of Michael’s tweets (including those messages he retweets). My text message notification of the TVline retweet by Michael time stamps it at 12:44PM CST (10:44AM PST)

  • Matt mitovich editor of tvline has commented on the nastiness of fans in this poll. Maybe we should all take a good long look in the mirror and decide if we really want to be known as the fandom with bad fans. And I am speaking of both Castle & NCIS because both are behaving badly.

    Comment by Mark – December 26, 2011 02:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • @Mark – There are people commenting who are neither Castle nor NCIS fans, so you cannot say some comments are indicative of bad behaviour of the NCIS or Castle. Besides I don’t see what the big deal is – polls like these engender passion, and apart from a few OTT comments, the MAJORITY of commenters have been OK with their comments. Can’t blame the many for the few surely – lol?
