NCIS > NCIS Season 9 Spoilers: E.J., Kort, Ray, Tony's "Assignment" & Much More > Comments Page 9
I agree Steve sometimes those evils are necessary. I like the way that the show plays them out. I like the quality of the show and the ways the characters interact. I sort of like Kort he is a sneaky snake.
Heh, don't get me wrong Cathy, I make no judgements about the CIA, Millitary or other Intelligence agencies. In the end they do what they have to. It's an ugly business, but monitoring our enemies and gaining an advantage or preventing enemies from gaining an advantage on us outwieghs it.
In the end it's about our own survival. "Kort" or those like him may do some questionable things, but they are necessary.
editor yeah I did laugh and Tony thought he was getting spots and Ziva told it was a freckle and Tony says I never had a freckle then Ziva you always had the freckle there then he says how would you know if I had a freckle I still laugh at that part.
if the people of ncis wernt interesting then the best cases would be boring its gibbs team that makes this show.
....and Tiva did you not just laugh out loud when Tony was checking his arm for that freckle...and he screamed at Ziva.."how would you know if I had a freckle..and by the way, I never had that freckle !!"....I laughed forever at that funny Tony....I may have to go and watch that episode now !!!!!
NCIS has the one of the best characters on TV I like how Tony thought he was dying and the rat phobia in Chimera and Ziva Ghost phobia and McGee's see sickness. I like the cases when it comes to deal with the team like in Framed-up when they went to prove Tony Innocent's and in bloodbath when they went to found who almost killed Abby.
I agree with Editor!!!
I don't care for the show solely for the cases. i liked chimera episode because of the characters reactions and interactions.
And same with about any episode.
I too liked the Chimera show, very much and it is not far off the course of what really happens with reality in the military. Well not really the military so much as the the other powers that be cover up what they do not want us to know. My dad was CIA and there was alot that went on that the American public was not allowed to know.
I guess that is why I am so interested in NCIS and other programs of this nature. I lived through the cold war so I remember a great deal of this garbage that the goverment tried to feed us. However, I digress, I like the Chimera episode when they change it around and get off the ship and then the ship blows up with the Russians on board. That would have pissed me off.
I am really looking forward to next season. I hope it is as good as the past ones. I do hope that Tony and Ziva get together a litter more and Tim and Abby and I want Gibbs to have someone too, he really needs someone.
Ha Ha Ha Steve - from your lips to God's ear - or to the writers ears - I have been waiting for something/anything to happen with Tony and Ziva for 7 full years now - since Ziva first walked into the squad room and you could feel the UST between them. Michael Weatherly says that UST is what moves stories forward on TV and I believe he is right. They have had a number of onderful 'moments' but, they have had like only one kiss undercover and one cheek kiss in the bathroom after Somalia. YIKES!!! I hope Season 9 is a nice surprise for us..or for me anyway!!!
Michael, you never cease to amaze me with what little knowledge you seem to have of NCIS. FYI, Mark Harman IS presently doing a MOVIE while he is on a few month hiatus from NCIS. However, Michael, he has mentioned several times as have all the cast that NCIS it not an easy show to do - takes 8 days to do one episode -12 to 16 hour days when you are a main character - although CIRay is hardly that but still try and do the math Michael.... I believe it IS too hard to do two shows at one time!! I also want to point out to you that JEANNE JEANNE JEANNE is her name will never be back to "save Tony"..don't you recall she ACCUSED Tony of murder (Season 5, Episode 14 - "Internal Affairs" -some 3 years ago) and they said their FINAL goodbye on that show. Man, you just want to say things to annoy people don't you ? Well, good job because YOU are working on my last nerve .......
You're right thought, regardless of how much of a basis in reality a lot of the shows actually have, it would all be meaningless without good character chemistry and interaction, which NCIS does well and has with the core cast, including Ziva and Tony.
Its why even though in general people like Kate, they like Ziva even more. And I do suspect that with the heavy demand Ziva and Tony will see a lot more... umm action togather.
Oh really Michael? Is it associated with a different Nuclear Submarine recovery on the DVD Extras?
I know of several, the one I talked about was recovered off Bermuda, there was another one recovered in Hawaii.
WoW Steve - you seem to know a lot of the behind the background info - that's all a bit more involved than I want to get when I watch an Episode. Truthfully, I loved Chirmera simply because 1) Tony was so comical with the rat, the freckle and the blood testing and sang that little ditti 2) McGee was seasick and that made for some laughs 3) Ziva mentioned she 'may' believe in ghosts (? haha) 4) Ducky was with the Team from the get go and finally, it was a great Halloween type show shown right around Halloween time...nice! Call me shallow, but I just simply enjoyed it and had a lot of laughs. The ending - that did surprise me for sure - but a very enjoyable show non the less. Shane Brennan said that they switched up the order of Chirmera and Requiem so that Chirmera was on Halloween. I do agree that the writers on this show (Jesse Stern (now gone)George and Frank, et al are really really good - I look to see who wrote it and directed it every week) Thanks for all your extra info tho
Loved this season of NCIS, good as always. Finale was amazing and i cannot wait for season 9. Sad that Mike Franks died =(
That not what they said on the DVD extras
Since you brought up the Episode: CHIMERA... remember on the last page how I said that even though NCIS takes liberties with how things happen... but its still overall correct in how things work?
CHIMERA is an excellent example.
The story is actually based on what we really did when there was an old cold war situation regarding nuclear weapons on a sunken Soviet submarine. The USSR had a lot of problems with Ballistic Missile submarine mishaps that sunk some of them. One specifically was the K-219. Two years after it went down, the Soviets did a bottom scan to find it, and discovered the Missile Hatches had been pried open and all the nukes were missing.
Google this... Glomar Explorer
This is technically a CIA ship, not a Navy ship, thus it would not be investigated by NCIS at all... but the CHIMERA episode changed reality a little and made it a Navy Ship instead of a CIA vessel... So it still was procedurally correct for a US Intelligence mission. The writers t
I liked both episodes Requiem and Chimera they were both good episodes it was so sad when Kelly told her daddy to go back . I also Liked Framed-Up when Requiem and in Chimera was surprise ending Abby got ship at the end. I also liked Dog Tags when Abby proved the Dogs innocents. and yes an actor can do show at once he can guest star on NCIS whale he does his new TV show
Yes I did like Chimera, that one really surprised me with the ending, I somehow did not see that coming. The story draws you in and focuses you on one thing, then turns around and surprises you.
I know about the Russian submarine in question, its actually based on something that really happened off the coast of Florida.
Mark is doing NICS and his own Tv show on the USA network so im sure Ray can do two shows its not that hard.
I hope we get to see Mcgee Girlfriend again they are so perfect for each other just like Tony and Jenna were.
Speaking of her these is a form going around to bring her back on the show to save Tony
I kinda don't think we will literally SEE CIRay next year. I believe he has another show starting. But, could be Ziva still e-mails and texts him like she did all last year. I hope that isn't the case though and she realizes that he is not the PERMANENT that she wants.
Also, forgot to say that I thought that REQUIEM was one of the very best shows...very Gibbs oriented and the commentary by Shane Brennan gave all kinds of inside hints and how they did those dives and naturally Tony saved Gibbs and the girl. I found it very touching and a great episode. Kinda like what Kelly might be like had she lived - and Gibbs even mentions that in the episode.
Next year going to be fun for NCIS LA
Steve - I love to watch the old NCIS DVDs as well. The shows were awfully good. Of course, Undercovers and Boxed In..GREAT with Tony and Ziva. I listened to the commentaries on Boxed In - I think it might have been one of the Directors and one of the Writers and they were saying they wanted Tony and Ziva Characters to act together so that their obvious chemistry since Cote started in Season 3 be shown. It certainly was. And Cote says that she loved Boxed In as well. Have you watched "Chimera" about the Ghost Ship ? Too good. Check that one out..just for McGee and Tony it is worth it. I admit, I did not like Obsession at all.
I think what you see on NCIS LA the similarities is because - look at the Directors who direct them...a lot of the same names as NCIS. I suppose they direct on one show one week and the other the next. James Whitmore Jr. and Dennis Smith in particular are great ! And Shane Brennan did all he could to NCIS (some say, he ruined Ziva but...)and now he i
Yeah honestly I can't say I'm that fond of NCIS: LA, partially its the chemistry, partially because the atmosphere just doesn't feel like a Federal Investigation unit.
The writers are excellent, as are the storylines they are coming up with. I watched one recently involving old cold war espionage which very well done. But they seem to be really handicapped by both the lack of chemistry in the actors and atmosphere surrounding them that just isn't that believable.
Its unfortunate, because the writers are excellent with regards to the cases.
On a different note: I've been going back through all the episodes of the normal NCIS and have found a lot of hidden Gems. Boxed IN and Undercovers are excellent Tony and Ziva episodes. But two I found for Gibs are equally good... Requiem and Ex-File. For Abby... Cracked was a really good one.
A particularly good cold war espionage episode was Obsession.
you can write a nice comment when you want to michael
Somebody meantion on a other NCIS fanbase What if Ray and Trent have some tie to Ziva family like what if they CIA was behide the death of Ziva Sister and mother
