NCIS > NCIS Review: Can Diane Be All Bad? > Comments Page 2
Like everyone has already said, great episode. The writing has been exceptional this season - the references, the way they keep bringing the past into the present, - really good stuff. Wish they had put a football into Gibbs' hand too. Really hard for a show to top itself, but his one does every week. Loved the, "You're my Shannon." line but the best was, "We pronounce it, Gibbs." was the line of the week. Don't know if you read these things, but keep it up!
Such a good episode. I agree that this cast is so underated. They are a team and I wouldn't want to see any of them leave.
Loved the interaction of Diane and Fornell and hope to see them again in a future episode.
NCIS it TOPS in my book.
This was a great episode. Seeing Gibbs and Fornell trying to pass the buck to each other was fun. Then Tony using his standing in for them to ask personal questions was classic DiNozzo. A fun episode all around. And Fornell hiding in the shadows of Gibbs' basement. The fact that Gibbs' team couldn't be businesslike and casual about the two exes situation made it more real. Just like real life. Gibbs has now made his peace with two exes. Is there another reunion on the horizon. I hope so. I also want to see Ralph Waite back again.
And Robert Wagner.
2lolo: I agree. Do not mix NCIS and NCIS LA together--bad mistake. The two shows are very different and I don't think it will push up the ratings that much. I like NCIS exactly because it is different and funny with the cast of characters it has. You're on a role, don't ruin it...
The entire episode was amazing from beginning to end.
I loved the addition of Diane and I didn't see her as a troubled villianous type of woman. She's an ex wife and most of the interactions were great comedic relief. Her final scenes with Gibbs left me breathless when she admitted that he was her Shannon. Powerful poignant moment. Watching her engage with Gibbs and Fornell not to mention watching Fornell and Gibbs engage with one another was great. Watching the nosy kids especialy the ultimate scenestealer Michael Weatherly show pure glee in trying to learn more about the boss was hilarious! I also loved that they brought back the lab tech friend of Abby's. She was a lovely character before and so was her husband, may he rest in peace. He was the little person that dated Abby a couple of seasons back, and tragically the actor died, but it was lovely seeing his real life wife, the lab tech who was also on NCIS before back. Her hitting on Fornell was a riot.
There is virtually nothi
she called Gibbs her Shannon
What did Diane say to Gibbs when she handed him the pocket watch?
Best episode of the season. Joe Spano stole the show as Tobias.It looks like they filmed the stadium scenes at the LA Coliseum where Mark Harmon starred for UCLA in the early 70's. It must have brought back some memories for him. Too bad they couldn't had a scene where Gibbs ends with a football in his hands as a little inside reference.
I love NCIS. Everything about it, the actors, the story lines etc. I watch all the reruns on USA every night. They have like a marathon almost every night. Abby is fantastic and Gibbs is very handsome and plays the role fantastic. Last night's show was funny and also emotional at the same time. I would love to see more shows like that. It is a shame that we cannot see new shows every week all year long!!!.
In the (2006) season 4, episode 2 (Escaped), Hal Holbrook played the villain. In that episode, the daughter of Fornell and Diane was at a birthday party, and the "escapee" character came over and talked to her, scaring the bejeebers out of Fornell. The daughter appeared to be about five at that time. So that should make her just at the point of pre-teen now.
Michael Gilden portrayed the little person in whom Abby was interested. He died in real life, but not on the show. On the show, his character broke up with her, telling her that she "was too much woman" for him. (They had to resolve it like that because he died.) I really liked that actor -- he played a leprechaun on Charmed, and he was a charmer himself. It is a shame.
Meredith Eaton-Gilden, his widow, first appeared in the season 7, episode 10 (Faith) where McGee managed to get an M-TACH call through to a ship at sea so that a little boy could talk to his mother on Christmas. Seeing her just show up with no foofar
i will always enjoy watching ncis on cbs
@ Ted - $2 million is a ton. What I meant was that it didn't seem like so much that one would try to hide it, or that it would change her opinion of him, as he's already a professional earning good wages. If it was their nest egg, like he said, that would make sense, but why hide it?
NCIS Always been a great show................. CAn't say much about ncis: la
loved this episode great acting.we need a tony and ziva episode like boxed in which to me one of the best episodes ever so please you brilliant writers get writing.
MWK - this probably wasn't the first time he stopped there and she even said she had smelled hamburger on him before!
So to the author, 2 million is a big deal? Well I bet to a lot of us IT IS!
Anyway, to the producers, directors, writers, and, especially, the cast - keep up the great work! With so little on tv worth watching - you are a refreshing difference!
Remember last year when Abby had that "thing" for the little person scientist and he died? This actor who helped Abby last night is his wife in real life, or was his wife as he actually did die.
I loved last night's episode. I laughed so hard watching Gibbs and Fornell interacting with Diane. I loved it when Gibbs gut kicked in and he opened the door to find his team (kids) listening in on his conversation. It was priceless!! I think it has been my favorite show so far this season.
I love me my Fornell (with Gibbs). They are great together. Ican't wait to see how this plot point shakes out with Fornell and Gibbs investigating the big wigs. I wouldn't be surprised to see it lead to the current SecNav. Beyond that, I loved the last scene. It's always nice to get some closure in one's life and Gibbs finally got some of that with Diane. One of, if not the, best episodes of the season.
love the episode love Gibbs what a great actor he is, he does not need to talk, he is the best, where is Mr. Palmer??? want more episodes like that he is the man. love the end and even like Diane a bit more after what she said. waiting for next week
Loved the episode. That said, how did the kidnapper actually "know" Victor was going to stop at the burger joint? (BTW- There are no real Beltway Burgers, thank god). In any case, Victor hid the 2 mil when he was younger and it was a lot of money. I think 2 mil in my 50's would still be a great deal and I wish daily that I had some of it.
Diane was great, acerbic and humorous and bitchy and actually really and truly concerned for this husband. She was tough and goodness knows Gibbs and Fornell do not need blushing damsels for wives no matter how many they end up having. The daughter has got to be early teens as last time she was mentioned, Gibbs and Fornell shared a juice-box in her preteen bedroom. And where was the kid?
The mystery/crime was an afterthought and no one, in this day and age of potential chemical/biological terrorism would be so complacent.
Our heroes, Ziva, McGee and Tony were given their moment as they paused for the National Anthem and the flying liberty,
@Earth Orbiter: The thought crossed my mind, but it seems out of character for Gibbs to make an overtly sexual comment. He is not a crass or crude person. Tony would be more likely to make a comment loaded with sexual innuendo, but I think Gibbs is above that.
I agree; the last scene was very poignant with Diane revealing that Gibbs was her "Shannon". Made me like her a lot more.
Maybe it was because I missed the beginning, but I wasn't crazy about this episode. I was looking for something likable about Diane -- Gibbs had liked her enough to marry her, didn't he? -- but I thought she was toxic. Had me feeling sorry for Fornell, who I'd usually give mixed reviews.
I like the helper Abby enlisted. Absolutely no mention of the fact that she's a little person. She happens to be a good actress, and I hope they use her more.
@ps in Seattle: I think you're missing the significance of "trust" and "69."
I loved the episode. Fornell and Gibbs are always good together. Gibbs is my man
