NCIS > NCIS Review: Gibbs Delivers! > Comments Page 3
my single complaint is that the guys on the radio were speaking english. if both are russian, shouldnt they have been speaking Russian?
for the love of god stop with the super ziva! all three characters know their ways around cars- do you really think a special agent, a spy, a MOSSAD agent wouldn't know a car's engine? it's really not that unrealisitc. i loved this episode! it was sillier, and a bit cheesier but was still NCIS. unlike certain shows (cough cough glee)
Really tired of Super Ziva - again. Between an unrealistic fight and more 2 fisted shooting at everything - and now a mechanic - tiresome. Liked the marine. Liked the cookie lie detector. Just make Ziva a little more human.
Have no problem with the fact a Christmas show is cheesy, actually the first 54 minutes were terrific. All I have to say is how long is it going to take Tony to grow up and can we move on to another topic. Tony is afraid of children , Tony resents his father after 42 years because he didn't give him attention (3 seasons of that), Tony is serious because he truned down a girlfriend and she went to rehab, Tony couldn't handle the assignement given by the head of the Navy, etc. They changed Ziva's character well as she matured and grew up and they are making Tony go in reverse. McGee would be my choice as lead agent after Gibbs. The writers are really destroying the lovable Tony character for me.
I loved the episode it was great seeing palmers soon to be father-in-law.my favorite part was Abby putting jimmy and Ed in time out and my other favorite was Gibbs delivering the baby and ziva fighting the guys trying to take the baby.
Thought that Ziva and Gibbs scenes were great! McGee was extra special last night. He's the new DiNozzo. Abby was her awesome self. I thought the last scene ruined the show. They are making Tony look like a humorless, old mid-40 whiner. It seems they add this in to every show since the end of last year. I was with Gibbs when he said "man up". The show should have ended with Gibbs alone in his basement talking to Franks.
This was definitely a Christmas episode and I thought it was great! Jimmy standing up to hsi father-in-law was priceless -- how many times in real life right before a wedding does this happen? Get real - it always does and not only to the groom-to-be! Ziva's long fight with the Russian was fantastic! The fact that it was done to Silent Night and the baby being born is and can be very realistic when you really think about the "times" that we are in. A baby being born can cause chaos in every situation and the fight to keep this child from being kidnapped was no different. I love the way Emma stuck to "her guns" about standing for the Marine code until she couldn't anymore -- giving birth isn't easy on anyone! Tony not being able to m ake his mind up is totally characteristic of himself. Gibbs at the end only proves the father figure that he portrays throughout every episode and of course he's going to be with layla and his god daughter on Christmas! The beautiful pink bike probably brou
Agree completely. Cheesy episode. So a cheesy comment to wrap up the year. Who had the toughest job this week? Not Gibbs-delivering a baby. Not Ziva-taking on two Russian mercs by herself. Not McGee-dealing with a federal bureaucrat who did not want to be bothered. Not Palmer- dealing with the future father-in-law from hell, but Tony who was ordered to clear the mall store while Gibbs and Ziva were checking the dressing rooms. Try clearing a store on Christmas Eve full of last minute shoppers. Lucky Tony wasn't gang pepper sprayed.
That firefight was ridiculous. In any other episode Ziva would have killed him with her first shot (especially since he was turned away from her when she fired first) and that would have been it. But because they wanted the theme of one life ending as another begins it had to be dragged out until the baby started crying.... whatever.
Also while it's nice to see Palmer stick up for the team I'm not sure why it was necessary. The audience already knows why the team does what they do. Why did we need this ham handed attempt to shove the point down another characters throat? We know the man is going to change his mind in the end - that much is obvious so why bother?
I have feelings about the whole plot of the female Marine who said she always only wanted to be a Marine... thoughts that I probably shouldn't say... and everything else about her story seemed so obviously contrived so that the plot idea would work.
On the positive side it's nice to see that Tony is FINALLY at least
I have but two points regarding your review, and none regarding the episode itself. I liked Jimmy's sweater. It looks like something a favorite aunt or a doting fiancee might get him. It is just a little young for him, though.
Gibbs is the godfather of Mike Franks's grand-daughter. As long as her grandmother lives, she may be in some danger from her family, and Gibbs is her protector. Of course he would take that seriously. In addition, he loves them both dearly. He made a boat for that child.
Good episode, totally agree it was cheesy but its the holidays!
