Jesus, but these freaks in the comments are embarrassing. I just don't understand why they're being so mean, what do they think it proves besides their own immaturity and inferiority complex. As for the poll, I didn't vote. Not that I can't chose even, but after reading these comments I feel icky being associated with this bunch of fans in any way, positive or negative.


The two people with the best chemistry in the entertainment industry have made it to the top of this little contest. That is great. Love 'em both separately, but much they are spectacular together.


I love both, but I love Stana a little more.


This is an impossible decision.


CASTLE is unique. This is the first time in my life I have felt the inclination to actively participate in a TV program. I am not a professional critic. As a viewer I perceive Castle & Beckett as two sides of the same coin; different but the same. Does this make sense? You grow to love them both & while remaining grounded in reality, Stana becomes Kate & Nathan becomes Richard. As a mother there have been times I feel like shaking them up...both of I am sure their parents must feel on occasion. In a nutshell, there is no VS. between Katic & Fillion. At present they are both CASTLE - two young people with tremendous potential who have managed to make us believe they truly are ONE and I for one love them both.


The fandom is talking..just saying!


The results of this voting and especially these nasty comments below are exactly the reason why I stay away from the Castle fandom. I just don't want to be associated with the most vocal and delusional part of it, so-called "Stanatics', and here they are at full display, at their "finest". I will never get how people can call themselves fans of the show and at the same time feel so much hatred and animosity towards the lead actor, who actually makes the show what it is, whether they like it of not - and just for the mere fact that he has some other memorable roles in his career besides Castle and dares to love them, too. And I feel a bit sorry for Stana, to be honest. With fans like these one don't need enemies, indeed. P.S. The irony is that Emily, the first commenter, happened to be right - that's exactly what is going on here. Sad, but true.

Philly ace

Well it's clear. We love Castle! And I guess I have to go with Beckett over Castle. Purely because over her looks.


@LisaC - (applause) Exactly.


Come on, this poll is not an election of who you want to run your country, it's just a fun and interesting way to determine which shows and characters are most popular amongst the online community. Period. If there is "hatred" being bred amongst the Castle fandom it's because of the fans themselves, NOT because of TV Fanatic or any other site that has set up a poll like this. We just need to learn to have respect for all members of this wonderful fandom and we need to pull together to show support for this show because both Nathan and Stana wouldn't be on television for us to cheer for without this show and without such a loyal fanbase behind them. Honestly, can't we just be HAPPY and PROUD that BOTH of our stars made it to the final round? Why does this have to instigate fights amongst the Nathan fans and Stana fans?? Aren't we all just Castle fans at the end of the day?? And it's just for fun, it's not like we're deciding which of these two gets to stay on the show and which one gets fired or which one wins an award and which one goes home empty-handed. Seriously, folks, just knock it off with the arguments between the two camps and just be happy and proud of the fact that the SHOW that we love came out on top, yet again, and stop fighting with your fellow Castle fans because it's actually rather sad that a fandom targets other members of that same fandom when we're all here for the same reason. Heck, if these two could actually get past all of their fears and get over their past mistakes to actually be together as a committed romantic couple, why can't we, the Castle fandom, do the same amongst each other??
