Nerd Fight Poll Results: Favorite TV/Movie Father
Which Fictional Father Won The Fight
This was a great Poll week. I love doing nothing more then praising all of our wonderful fathers. It turned into a duel between Comic book father hero Jonathan Kent; and playboy millionaire turned Crime Fighter Richard Castle. It is hard to argue with either pick. Papa Kent has been portrayed over the years by many wonderful actors. And Nathan Fillion has stood the test of time with his character portrayals. So thank you all who came out and participated you made it a great fathers week.
Big Daddy Damon Macready (BigPapaMatt)
Nicholas Cage’s reputation I think gave him a bad rep in this weeks poll. Either that or viewers just didn’t feel the fatherly love when he shout his daughter in the chest.
Bryan Mills (Fan Pick)
This was surprising. He is one of the most popular characters, and one of the most quoted as well. I think perhaps he is seen as a BAMF action star and people forget that he is a father trying to get his daughter back.
Homer Simpson (NudieRudie)
Arguably the most popular father on the list. Everyone knows Homer and his donuts obsession. It seems as though his fans followed Homer’s lead and didn’t get off the couch to vote.
Atticus Finch (Jack Malice)
This honestly is the person everyone should aspire to be. I think the only reason he finished so low is the book is sadly not as prominent in today’s culture. Which is just a goddamn shame. It’s also as Igor pointed out in the podcast a movie that holds up to the quality of the Book. That is the power of Gregory Peck.
Al Bundy (BCon)
A real Man’s Man. Probably the grumpiest father on this list. He may have seemed angry and frustrated with his life on the surface. but deep down Al always stepped up to make his family’s life better. Even if his own wants suffered.
Jonathan Kent (Fan Pick)
Who doesn’t love Papa Kent? Sometimes i find him more appealing then Clark. He is the man who molds Clark into being what Superman is. The selflessness, and moral compass that he instills in Clark is why Superman is so compelling to watch.
Richard Castle (SuperwhovianFreak)
Finally, we come to first place. The Relationship Between Castle and his daughter is one of the most honest and real relationships I have ever seen on television. The levels of respect that they share for each other is inspiring to watch. I attached a video I found above the song was so beautiful I cried. It highlights everything that made their relationship wonderful. Even if it didn’t have as much dialogue as I prefer, it really didn’t need it. In case the above video is a bit too sappy, I provide you with this video instead, where it shows that inner badass every father can summon when their baby girl has been taken.
Here are all the wonderful people that re-tweeted or liked anything having to do with Castle in the poll:
The support was greatly appreciated, and Castle and Alexis won because of it. Thank you to all the Castle fans out there and any others that helped support the poll.
