NCIS > NCIS 200th Episode Review: Again, For the First Time > Comments Page 2
200 thank you NCIS cast and crew. Great gift.
I thought the story line would be something like this: Gibbs gets shot...near death....sees his wife who tells him it's not his time....go back and take care of his "family".. Gibbs questions her statement...Shannon shows him examples of how he has cared for his team (family) and they cared for him....ex. Gibbs helping Tony to grow and Tony saving Gibbs life, etc. Gibbs awakens in the hospital surrounded by his team/family. The show is all about quirky people who blend into a cohesive team who care for one another like family. That should be the theme of the episode.
200th episode awesome thank you. this such a great show.
I do hope we get into why Mcgee didn't go to japan it has to be more then just staying at NCIS
I don't like Michael, since I'm one of the people he calls stupid -- but he seemed to especially enjoy this episode, which actually made me glad for him. It had the very elements he desires ... and it made me think that all of us NCIS fans have characters or scenarios we each particularly like, and all together we all are fans of the whole show. For instance, I like episodes that feature Tony showing leadership and initiative (rescuing Ziva was one of my favorites and season 3 is still my favorite season), but I know a couple who love NCIS, but don't like Tony at all, consider him a shirker and immature and only tolerate him because they love the show. So, Michael got one he enjoyed a lot. Good for him!
I feel disappointed. After 199episode I expected something different.
The only what if I liked was kelly/Shannon because it gave gibbs a closure.
Didnt like tony/kate.. never though of them as a couple.
While I certainly didn't hate this episode - I found it imaginative, but a little disjointed, I had really hoped that the 200th episode would focus on the whole team and have more characteristic NCIS humor in it. Instead it was a rather heavy hearted sad Gibbs centric story. Mike Franks and Riley McAllister had more screen time and significance than cast members who have been on the show since episode 1. The biggest thing that sets this show apart is the humor and relationships in this ensemble cast, that Gibbs is the head of. While I liked the episode, I don't think that NCIS is a one man show, and so I felt a little disappointed that the team was pretty much MIA. The entire cast and their interactions are a huge part of what make NCIS unique IMO.
Absolutely phenomenal. After Grey's desastrous attempt at a "what if" episode last week, I wondered if it could be done well, but once again NCIS blew me away. Then again, comparing Grey's and NCIS is like comparing Meyer and Rowling... Amazing show, no wonder it's the #1 drama. Well done!
@Nick...Hello to you, too. Thanks for the complement. I LOVE the show and enjoy posting about it. RE my comment about Tony and Wendy, I was simply trying to make the point that just because Tony has had other relationships didn't mean his feelings for her went away or could not be rekindled. Maybe saying she was the one who got away was overstating my point a bit.
This was a really fun episode. We need to see more of Frank's ghost coming to Gibbs's aid. My only problem with it was that the case of Rose was not resolved. It seemed as if the entire reason for the flashbacks was to show Gibbs that sometimes doing wrong is right. That gave me the impression that he was going to go to bat for Rose after what he felt he had to do to get out of his situation. That was left up in the air. It is not like Gibbs to behave the way he did about the Rose family. It is also not like Bellisario to leave a story up in the air with no hint of resolving it. Why all of the soul searching and then just leave the story unfinished. But all in all it was a great 200th episode and it was good to see that Gibbs finally laid his conscience to rest. I am still wondering what happened to the dog??
Thanks, Gigi. I was just trying to get in to correct that. You are right, it was Shannon and Kelly's funeral that his father brought his girlfriend to, which is why Gibbs and his father were estranged for so many years, Shannon was the one who tried to keep them together.
@kat loved your comment i really think michael is not from earth.
Zia...totally agree with you, except I think the funeral Gibbs was referring to was Shannon and Kelly's, not his mother's. :)
@Idyo.....It was said by Gibbs' mother that his father looked at other women because he was tired of changing her sheets. Meaning she had been ill and was bedridden. She died. Also in the past years Gibbs was angry at his father for bringing one of his girlfriends to his mother's funeral.
As for the episode, I thought it was great. Gibbs looking back, hopefully will have him cope better with what has happened. His mother being a redhead did not go unnoticed. As far as Tiva, I am not a fan of it happening. The mentioning of it in the show, I do not think was a desire by the show to have Tony and Ziva get together, nor was it a slap in the face to those who do want a Tiva to happen. It was just an inside joke, that most fans would understand and recognize. I'm looking forward to the next 100 episodes.
lydo...big fan?? I think not... If you were, you'd most certainly know what happened to Gibbs' mom. Go back and watch Heartland and you'll find out. Obviously, this show was a little too complicated for you to follow...probably should stick with the Kardashians or something a little less challenging. And Mike Franks was one of the best parts of NCIS and this episode.
This was an awesome episode. We'll get back to the good old cases next week, but this was a great way to say "thank you" to the fans and really showcase the talented cast, crew, and writers who put this show together every week!!
Big fan but HATED this show. Stupid. Obfuscated. Hate Muse. Always hated him. Why did Gibb's mother leave? Died? Bolted?
Great show. A 'what-if' episode was appropriate for a major anniversary. Everyone played the usual good role, but the big surprise - Who would guess Palmer had abs? I would like to see a bigger role for Jimmy Palmer as I think Brian Dientzen is a talented actor. You didn't need to take off most of his clothes to show us his attributes.
@Janet, don't you just love the tidbits that Michael contributed to us on here. CBS wants the Tiva toned down, WTH Michael?!?! Really, do you honestly think they would alienate a big pack of fans. Plus, I don't think CBS has any control over the stories at NCIS. Need to invent a time machine for @Michael so he can travel back to season one.
everyone has the right to there own views but when @michael keeps writing lie after lie i just cant keep quiet what is wrong with her tiva will keep on growing till the end when they finally get together so please michael if you cant write a decent comment and a truefull comment dont write.
You know according to TV guide CBS has told NCIS to tone down on Tiva so i wonder if that why we saw less of them, and the reason Ari didn't speak is because the actor sound he lost how to do the voice
@coco14...you are right...I meant MH gave the ULTIMATE performance of his career. As an English major and aspiring writer, I deserve a major-league Gibbs slap for that misuse of the word penultimate. Very embarrassed. Thank you for correcting me. Now, @bagle...in the episode "Heartland", we see young Gibbs and Shannon meet while waiting for the train. When Shannon learns bis name is Leroy Jethro Gibbs, she says,"I think I'll just call you Gibbs."
Wonderful episode. I've watched them all over and over again and rewatched this one already. Nice interplay between past and present and Mark Harmon never disappoints. Liked the scenes with his mother because I always wondered about her and still don't quite know what happened to her. Loved the scene with Shannon and Kelly because it was so bittersweet and helped him come to terms with not every decision being under his control. Best of all was Mike Franks appearing as his scenes with Gibbs are always the most fun and provide much background information without being maudlin. Last night's episode was different, and seemed like a family reunion with all the characters from years back. Not something you would want to do every week, but perfect for the 200th!
I always watch NCIS but i throught last nights was not as good as the others nights. but i will still watch them.
You know what shock me was that Mcgee did not take that offer in Japan he should of that would of been a great storyline
i think the scene with Kate was cut and pasted in from the "Plaque" episode. A scene with Jenny would have been great. I do think it could have been 2 hours. Mike Franks was great as usual. Great episode.
