[!] [NCISLA] [DK] Love Story
..... because it's bean a really really long time since I did a poll!!!

I left certain characters off the list either because I knew if they were included they would win by a clear majority or simply because I wanted to make you choose between specific characters.

If you've watched an odd episode of a show that you don't watch regularly, still feel free to vote for characters based on first impressions (obviously if you have absolutely no idea who the characters are then ignore). 

I made this entry Public simply so if you know someone who would get a kick out of doing this, then you can link them.  You're under no obligation to do so though.

You may or may not go down (or up!) in my estimation based on the answers you give.

(Hee.  Just kidding.  For a lot of these I found it incredibly hard to choose a favourite myself).

I voted as much as I could! For most of the shows, I have seen at least one episode, so they definitely got a vote, but others I haven't seen at all, so I skipped those. I also saw the first two LOTR films.
07.03.11 (UTC)
Thanks hun! These are interesting results! I never knew you ever watched 'The West Wing'? Was it just a random episode or did you used to watch regularly back in the day?

I'll be interested to see who wins the CSI:NY and NCIS ones as I *think* my f''list is equally divided!

Also, major points for answering the Teresa Lisbon Q correctly. ;)
07.03.11 (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen quite a few "West Wing" episodes, actually. My mom and sister went through a phase where they both really liked it, so I'd sometimes watch it with them. I was never a regular fan, but I saw enough to know who was who.

Yeah, that will be interesting.

Hehe, always happy to be of service. :)
08.03.11 (UTC)
cameron/house being my first OTP ever ♥

OMg i couldnt choose between Ziva/kate. I love them both so fucking much!!
07.03.11 (UTC)
Come to the conclusion that Wilson > all on House. Of course, I haven't watched in quite awhile, so that could be why I've never gotten attached to most of the characters.

Could I vote other for FNL? No Matty. :(
07.03.11 (UTC)
I agree with you there! Wilson is still the awesomest!

I purposely didn't include Matt because I thought everyone would vote for him rather than anyone else so I was evil and made y'all choose between the others (also why no Coach/Tami on list) as I am genuinely interested as to who's the favourite out of that lot (though I'm not sure I'll get a definitive answer as not many people on my f'list watch the show).

<3 <3 <3 <3 Luke. I am having such a hard time choosing between Luke and Vince though. Obviously Luke is just completely adorable but Vince goes through more character development and has harder things to deal with in his life. I am torn!!!!
07.03.11 (UTC)
My calendar says that March is "National Craft Month," but apparently it is also "International Character Poll Month." This is the fourth one I've participated in this week. This is horrible for my mental health, but can I stop? NOPE. This like giving a dog access to unlimited food. A normal dog, not one of those odd self-regulating ones.
07.03.11 (UTC)
At least on this one I'm not eliminating people, though. So it can just be a giant love fest! Highlights:
-Abby or Elizabeth?? Nnnnn...at the last minute, Abby.
-Lucy Knight, always. I have no idea who Anna is.
-Lexie, almost always -- unless challenged by April. April could take on my love for Cristina. Don't test me on that front, though.
-Poor Aragorn. He is so high in my favor, but unfortunately he gets eclipsed by elves. (also horses, but don't tell him that.)
07.03.11 (UTC)
National Craft Month? Who the hell has time to make crafts when there is fandom-related stuff going on!!!!!!

I'd have to say that the one Q I wasn't sure which way you were going to vote was the Kate/Ziva one.

Oh I wished you'd gone with Elizabeth as Abby is kicking her ass! I was personally torn between Elizabeth and Carol. I don't really get the huge Abby love - don't get me wrong, I do like her but in comparison to Elizabeth / Carol, I don't understand why she is streets ahead. Then again I have watched all the Carol and Elizabeth episodes but am stuck halfway through Season 12 so perhaps I am missing out on lots of Abby awesomeness.

Anna was Carter's love interest (though nothing really happened) before Lucy so that would be .... Season 4? She was awesome. Then she disappeared and Lucy came along. Though apparently my f'list prefer Lucy?

Hehe, the Lexie/April was specifically for you. I presumed that almost everyone else would choose Lexie.

I am the same way with Aragorn! I think Legolas just edges him out (if we're basing this on the films).

There are so many ties in this poll atm that if some of them don't get resolved before I go to bed, I may not sleep at all tonight!!!!
08.03.11 (UTC)
Abby has a lot of flaws, but she's still sympathetic to me. I guess I like how much we got to see Abby grow, and what a warm all-around presence she was as a care provider -- perhaps by virtue of being a surgeon, I think of Elizabeth as being more closed off. It would still be a hard call, because Elizabeth is fabulous in all situations, but tipping points in Abby's favor were strong female friendship (with Neela) and the fact that her marriage did not flame out and have to be rescued by terminal illness. Rachel was a brat, but I really didn't like way that was handled.

Did not mean for that to turn into a ramble! Feel to combat it with a list of reasons Elizabeth and/or Carol (whom I've seen only a handful of times) is fabulous.

Lucy was Carter's love interest? Hah, shows what I know. I just remember her being a chipper, perky breath of fresh air. ...which sounds like Arizona, I realize, but somehow is completely different.

Specialized voting torture, I like it. :D
08.03.11 (UTC)
Taking this very seriously, as you can tell.

I'm also breaking the current ties on two of your polls after careful reconsideration -- a) I really can't stand anyone besides Liz Lemon on 30 Rock, but I can definitely stand Jenna more than Tracy or Kenneth.

b) Voting for Lyla on FNL because, while I couldn't remember most of the smaller-name characters and the ones I did know weren't favorites, I did get off my lazy butt to verify which one was the cheerleader girlfriend of the guy who got paralyzed. She made a strong impression on me. Google told me the truth, right?
08.03.11 (UTC)
Ah that makes sense! I'd forgotten that you hadn't seen the early ER seasons where Carol was awesome and Elizabeth was a LOT more awesome in her pre-Mark, Season 4, days. Although from what you might have seen of Peter Benton, you might not think it but Peter/Elizabeth were AWESOME together. She was so great that she made me like Peter both in the run-up before they got together, when they were together and then afterwards when they stayed friends. Then she got together with Mark and her awesomeness faded to a rather weak farewell.

I know that Abby/Neela have this epic friendship but I haven't really seen much of that so far! That will kind of be one of the incentives for me to push on and finish the series.

Yeah Lucy/Carter had that awkward kissing and then Carter realising it would be unethical to date his med student story arc. Lucy does remind me of someone though it's not Arizona. I don't know like a cross between Lux, April (GA) and Masters (doc that replaced Thirteen on House)? I am pretty sure those aren't the mix of characters I want to be comparing her to but I know she was on Ritalin and I actually found her quite annoying because she had the whole 'teacher's pet' thing going on (though my f'list love her apparently!). Then she ended up dying in this awful yet gripping way and I felt bad for not liking her as much as I felt I should have.

Jenna's my favourite!! <3.

Yes, yes that's Lyla! :) Interesting choice! I purposefully left the two most popular (Tim Riggins and Matt Saracen) off the list so I literally had no idea who would end up being the favourite out of that lot.

Thank you! I can actually retire to bed with my mind a little easier now!

07.03.11 (UTC)
I want it stated for the record that for the Friday Night Lights Q, I chose Jess simply because I could not choose between Vince and Luke. As awesome as Jess is though, the real answer is either Vince or Luke. The debate is still ongoing.
07.03.11 (UTC)
There were a lot of these I couldn't answer. AND THE ONES I COULD ANSWER WERE MOSTLY DIFFICULT DECISIONS. Especially the ER ladies and the FNL kids.


Also, I see what you did with that Lisbon question :P
07.03.11 (UTC)
Thank you for voting for Sarah Walker. I was going to but I was so torn and then somehow .... didn't. I mean I love Chuck and Sarah both so much for different reasons ... Poor Morgan. :(

It kills me that Lucy is beating Anna by so much. Also, I am shocked that there are so many Carter fans. :P

There are so many ties in this post, I'm going to lose sleep over this!!

I am surprised by Lyla? I don't know why, I just didn't know you were a big Lyla fan?

LMAO! :P
07.03.11 (UTC)
Yessss. Sarah is my girl ♥ I mean, I love Chuck too, but SARAH! I want to find fic out there that is basically an epic chronicle of Sarah and Ellie becoming BFFs. I don't think that fic exists, but I would love it if it did.

You know how much I love Anna. I almost voted for her in the original poll with the rest of the ER ladies, but then I realized I had a chance to vote for her in the Anna vs. Lucy poll so I gave my original vote to Carol (which could easily have gone to Susan or Abby). Carter was my very first TV boyfriend. We had a baaaaaad breakup over the whole Kem/Africa thing, but IN MY HEART, he was the first, soooo I had to go with him. Doug was a close second though. And LOL, Susan is in that poll too.

I love Lyla. I love ALL of the FNL kids though, really. I have no idea how I'm supposed to pick between them. In the end, I went with Lyla because of my undying love for Minka Kelly (which I swear is only minimally influenced by the fact that she's dating Derek Jeter). IDK. I really want to vote for all of them.
07.03.11 (UTC)
Haha! I had no idea how I was meant to pick between the FNL kids either! (Didn't include Matt as I was sure if I did everyone would vote for him and I still wouldn't get my answer!! Though looks like everyone is divided anyway). For me it was definitely going to be someone from the S4/5 lot as everyone in S1/2/3 has had a plot arc that really really annoyed me and even though they all managed to redeem themselves, I still hold that against them. Lol!

Have to say that I am surprised that you went with Carol rather than Abby! If I remember rightly didn't Abby top your 'fave female characters' list awhile back? (I might be wrong about this as it was before I had ever seen an episode of ER so I might be getting them all confused in my head)!!

You should definitely watch Parenthood when you get the chance! Minka has an arc on there that mirrors Lyla/Tim S1FNL in a tiny way. Actually, the fact that I really liked her guest-starring on PArenthood means that now I am rewatching FNL, I am actually liking Lyla more too (not that I disliked her the first time ....).
08.03.11 (UTC)
Yeah. I still don't know. I could have easily picked any of them. I LOVE THEM ALL. Except for the stupid McCoy kid, who obviously does not count. Jess was my favorite of the new kids, but I still loved all of them. SO MUCH. Viiiiiiiiiince! Luuuuuuuke. Becky. My precious bbs.

Scully was my #1 (still is). Abby has dropped down on my character list because of my general feelings on ER. I've been able to watch some of the earlier episodes, and that's made me realize how much I love them again. Abby dropped out of the top ten. All of the ER ladies did, I think. I AM NOT ALLOWED TO CHANGE THIS LIST ANYMORE. I have to picspam.


Oooh, I did know Minka had an arc on Parenthood! I tried the show last year, and it didn't take for me. At some point, I do want to try it again, but I haven't had the time for it yet. ONE DAY.
07.03.11 (UTC)
OMGFUN! I haven't watched House or Grey's in too long so I didn't vote in them, the others I don't watch. Great idea for a poll!
07.03.11 (UTC)
Hehe! Glad that you found it fun!

Do you reckon if I cross my fingers hard enough Anna will overtake Lucy?!?!?! Lol.
07.03.11 (UTC)
There were not so many "questions" I even could answer, because I don't< know many of those fandoms... and it was vey tough between Callie and Arizona since I love them both very very much :-) But yeah... and you left most of MY favourite characters out anyways... for example Avery in GA or Ryan of LuX... ;-)
07.03.11 (UTC)
Awwh hun! I didn't leave out your favourite characters on purpose! I left out some of MY favourite characters (I didn't include Kono or Meredith or Derek for example). But the object of the poll was that if you were to choose between just those two characters, who would you choose? Mostly because very often I find it hard to choose between these characters and wondered what everyone else thought. And with Lux, such a lot of fandom is Ryan Vs Baze, I was just curious as to whether more people loved Cate or Baze as individual characters.

Thanks for voting!!! :D
08.03.11 (UTC)
Can I just say:

THAT LAST QUESTION IS IMPOSSIBLE. IMPOSSIBLE CHOICE. TOTALLY MEAN TO PUT THOSE TWO AGAINST EACH OTHER. THEY'RE LIKE, MY TWO FAVORITES. MEAN, LADY. MEAN. (I picked Sam, because everyone should be like Sam. And Sam rules all. But SO MEAN, SOPHIE'S CHOICE.)

*ahem* That is all. ;)
09.03.11 (UTC)
Awwwh! Sorry! That last question was actually a random one as I thought people usually like one more than the other! Poor old Sam, he doesn't get as much love as some of the other characters even though he is an awesome friend to Frodo. Have to say though that personally Gandalf wins for me!!!!
08.03.11 (UTC)
CHILD, TRYING TO MAKE ME CHOOSE BETWEEN MICHAEL AND NIKITA IS LIKE SOPHIE'S CHOICE BUT SADDER.

But this was fun...mind if I steal it?
09.03.11 (UTC)
SORRY!!!!!!!!! XD

I am going to go fill out your poll now! :D I WOULD HAVE DONE IT YESTERDAY BUT I WAS TOO BUSY FLAILING ABOUT THE NIKITA PROMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
08.03.11 (UTC)
VOTED!

Slightly disappointed that you didn't have Matt (but of course, I read that you know everyone will vote for him)! :D Great poll though, this was heaps of fun. Must've taken you ages to do it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the headphones! :D
09.03.11 (UTC)
HEE! Thanks for voting! Yeah, I didn't include Matt (or Tim) because felt that he would win for sure and was intrigued as to who is 'second favourite' out of the kids.
08.03.11 (UTC)
I've done a few of these lately, and it always leaves me feeling 'aw, why doesn't *insert character here* get enough love. :P But this is fun! I wish I'd known more characters/shows though.
09.03.11 (UTC)
Thanks for voting! :) Yeah, I have to say that I am quite surprised by some of the votes too!
08.03.11 (UTC)
It makes me sad that Ryan is beating Esposito, but Wilson is beating both House and Cuddy so there is a silver lining.

Some of these were really tough! ER especially.
09.03.11 (UTC)
Hee! Yeah, they were tough for me too!

Aww you're an Esposito fan? I like them both almost equally but Ryan is so adorable I'd want him as my boyfriend!

<3 <3 Wilson!
