NCIS > NCIS Review: A Bounce in His Step > Comments Page 3
I'm with you Mel. After seeing Tony cast as the team's weak link and butt of the joke from about season 6 on, I'm glad Tony is finally getting a little less demeaning attention. Boonies, obviously doesn't enjoy the character much, which is his/her right. But this should give him/her a little empathy for those of us who are tired of the Ziva show, as we have had nothing but, for the last several seasons. Perky gossip Ziva really got on my nerves last night. Talk about over done.
Mel, I like Tony too. That's why I'd rather they quit centering all these episodes around him. He just comes out looking like a doofus.
Actually, I'd rather see every episode be TEAM centered so they'd ALL get a chance to shine and have interesting cases. I don't really care about Tony's poor little rich boy childhood OR Ziva's daddy issues.
Sorry boonies,but many of us like Tony, and after several Tony-lite seasons, I'm ecstatic he's finally getting a little face time.
Thought the ep was slow and ,like every Gibbs-centric ep, had too little team, but it was nonetheless entertaining. Liked the little moment between Tony and Ziva at the end, which you could view as a Tiva moment or just a nice honest moment between two friends. Thought Gibbs and Sam had a nice dynamic, but didn't really like her smug, know-it-all attitude towards the NCIS agents. It was okay, and had some nice moments, but like all the eps by these new writers, felt a bit off and unsatisfying.
For the first time I can say the show I love was, ok? I guess I'm a stuck in the mud but I really like the way the show has been with cases to solve and not so much trying to develop soap opera type stories about each character.
These actors deserve better. I thought Jamie Leigh was better last night but I still think she's not right for Gibbs. I like seeing the regular cast more and with these stories it seems they are saying two or three lines and then not there. Let the actors do more crime solving and make the cases really interesting. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You know after years and year of hearing we never find anything out about Tony I find it funnt how people are getting sick of his storys but their not sick of the going on 6 year Ziva storyline
Also, McGee is pretty much a non-player anymore. His voice is as bad as ever and he doesn't even stand up much anymore, just sits at his desk. What's up with that? Is he too weak to act anymore? Is he on his way out? I hope not. I love McGee. :(
I really want to like JLC, and I do. But I don't like her and Gibbs together. Her personality is ok and I like their verbal sparring, but when it comes to anything physical EWWWW! She's too old and that hair makes her look too butch. They look like twins getting it on. I'm not asking for a 20-yr-old, but get someone in their 40's who's more feminine.
At least this episode didn't center around Tony. There's been too many of those and we're getting another one with the "kid from Baltimore". I'm sure he'll be an emotional mess in that one too. That's all they've been doing with his character lately.
Liked this episode. For me-it was about Gibbs but it still felt like a team episode. It was good to see Abby and McGee for more than one scene. Loved Abby and Ducky's reactions to Dr. Ryan- funny.
Enjoyed the little Tiva scene at the end. Nice to see Tony and Ziva talking and listening to each other.
Gibbs and Ryan together-doesn't really matter to me. JLC and MH are both good actors and their scenes are well done.
I liked last night's episode. Was really funny at times. While I like JLC's character, I'm not sure I like her with Gibbs as anything other than friend and colleague. They have cute chemistry but just can't see them being long term. I'm actually all for bringing Agent Borin back for him. I did love the Tiva moment. I thought it was so cute and I am ready for them to push it along already. It's time producers!!
I really don't like the Gibbs and Dr Ryan relationship. After all theses years it is just not right!!! exciting episode tough. Loved Abby in this one her map was pure genius-of course. And for a huge Tiva fan I got two scenes worth watching over and over again!!!! My favorite was when Ziva asks Tony you cant expect someone to keep their feelings all bottled up forever can you???" news flash Ziva you just asked that question to someone who is doing that right now!!!
I adored last nights ep, and I, too, think Jamie Lee's character and Gibbs make a great team, mainly because Gibbs needs someone who is more cerebral than he is to balance out all his "gut" feelings. I love their banter, and I really loved that JL was able to charm Ducky by talking to the deceased, as he always does, and that she was able to make up a 'classic' comment to high-five for! I love Ducky, McGee and Abby, and it would appear that all three of them are in favor of Dr Sam and Gibbs getting together.
I loved seeing JLC and and Gibbs together. He needs to be happy and be more in control of the show. For too many shows Tony has been acting like he is the boss and Gibbs is there for him. That is the one thing I wish would change and also give McGee more of a story line. All he ever gets is abuse from Tony and doesnt have a lot to do on the show. Give McGhee a bigger part, he is a good actor. As or Tony, bring back his old flame,
Hoc for Gibbs she is too old for him. I know they are probably somewhat the same age but she look too butchy for him she is in no way shape or form sexy or beautiful enough for Gibbs. yeah let him have fun but for a romantic couple ugh. What happen to kernel bell assistant dark hair woman she was a lawyer she is sexy beautiful for Gibbs. Tony is still an always be my favorite.
I thought I was watching a hour long sitcom last night. This was played for the humor and while I truly love NCIS humor, this went way too far. The case could have been interesting, but it was merely a sideline for the Gibbs/Ryan dialogue and peekaboo faux relationship building. The Wickes half-brother being the evil mastermind was just thrown in there and his emotional supplication to his brother was out of place and over the top in the tone of the episode as a whole and way too unexplained to be interesting as a plot device. Stinky compuiter girl really, really, really should have been a tidbit for McGee and Abby. I would have loved to hear Abby comment on the lack of bathing. But, yes, Ryan's interactions with Ducky and Abby and Tony were great. Mishmash of an episode.
If NCIS returns for Season 10(and I it HAS been picked up),I damned sure want to see Jamie Lee come back as Dr. Sam Ryan.This is the kind of woman
Gibbs has needed since Jenny went down. She's tough enough AND smart enough to go head-to-head AND toe-to-toe with Jethro.
Not many women like that,which puts her in the "rare breed" category.
Someone suggested A WHOLE EP WITH ABBY EXPLAINING PHENOMENA.
YES!! YES!! YES!!
I WANT TO SEE THAT NEXT SEASON.
Let her and McGee highlight that one, a variation on Scully and Mulder.
Yes, that would be way cool.
Gibbs is older, redheads fade lol. what he needs and wants is an intelligent woman who can keep up with his mind and not treat him like Gods Gift. Dr. Ryan definitely can, much like Jenny and Shannon. She's a keeper. Definitely time for Gibbs to have someone of his own. Isn't that what the 200th episode was all about, closure and moving on? I do agree though, Tim isn't Tim any more, he's almost a caricature of his former self. Very sad, but seems to have come with his weight loss. Like he takes himself too seriously now.
I loved the episode. JLC is a great actress, her character is strong and smart. I think she is a perfect match for Gibbs. I liked Holly , but she certainly would have become ex-wise 5. Also is very nice to see happy and smiling Gibbs.
Tiva in the end was cute. Really , how long can you keep your emotions bottled, Tony? Common guys, please, it's getting old - just let them be happy too.
I think Palmer is off doing some other acting committment right now - As for last night's show, I am not a huge fan. It was OK but way too confusing and almost like a tennis match watching who is saying what to whome......Ziva was quite animated last night - overly so.....Tony was Tony (love his character)or was he Wink? Gibbs is historically stoic and focused on his cases when interacting with other women. Rarely does he let down his guard. Ryan was stimulated and intrigued on this case - it was a profesional coup for her to figure it out and when one-upped by Gibbs.....she was devastated. Control freak? ya think? I think he likes her(in his off time) and is intrigued enought to "be available to her", but what will happen is up to the writers - who I think were a different group for last night's show - they are playing with our emotions, not to mention the ratings.....it's March!
Best Tv show......
Thought the episode was boring & JLC was too cutesy.Loved the Tony, Ziva scene near the end. Tiva, Tiva, Tiva.
Tired of all the guest stars this season. I prefer seeing the team interaction without throwing a bunch of has beens into the action.
Loved seeing Tony in a sweater - trying to not look like a game show host? Also loved how he placed that little American flag in Ziva's coffee mug alongside her Israeli flag. Enough with all of the Gibbs-heavy episodes. Let's see the whole team!!!
It seems like the writers started with the scenario they wanted played out between Gibbs and Ryan and then to use a phrase used several times in these comments "cobbled together" a plot that would fit it. I half expected SECNAV to tell Wickes when he walked in "You've been punk'd". Two and a half stars. Only reason that high Ryan's Wink Martindale reference to Tony.
I loved last nights episode it was excellent I love Jamie Lee Curtis she's funny her character and gibbs work well together and so cute too even if they are old loved the entire episode, I also loved the tiva scenes of course, Tony is starting to show a little with his feelings for Ziva not quite there yet but its getting there now all we need is Ziva to admit to someone or herself that she has feelings for Tony too. I hope jamie lee curtis is more episodes I love her character its so fun, I like the banter between her and gibbs its so fun to watch and they are cute together and gibbs likes and she's not even a redhead
I didn't too like the ep either; it was a bit confusing at times. I like Jamie Lee but I find the relationship being forced on us - she doesn't strike me as Gibbs' type, plus their hair looks too much alike. I wish she'd get rid of that grey already; Gibbs' grey is ok. And to the reader who wants a Tiva relationship, give it a rest. Why do you guys always want two main stars to hook up? Im sure you wanted the hook up with the first female agent; then she was killed. Now Ziva? Why can't they have relationships outside? I find Tony and Ziva to have a great colleague relationship and wish it stays like that. This ep didn't do it for me but always glad to have it though.
