NCIS > NCIS Season Premiere Review: The Aftermath > Comments Page 2
This was, unfortunately, the single most anti-climatic ending I can ever remember seeing on the show. Such a let down. After all that happened, no tense, final show down or cunning twist that sees the hero come up trumps, just a painfully dull trail off scene that public enemy #1 die quietly, and willingly, at a time and place of his choosing. Shocking. I really hope the season gets a lot better from here.
How come there was not this much hate when Bush was on NCIS? was it because he was white?
All in all, just because a show has action in it, doesn't mean it can't be deep. So everyone watch this again and put on their thinking caps and if you don't like it still, say it disappointed you and move on with your lives. And just so you know, 4.6 out of 5 is most definitely not a horrible episode. Hell, 3.6 is not horrible.
I find it absolutely hilarious how people are commenting on Michelle Obama. They're acting like she brought the freaking plague to America. Not only that, they used her in a joke. They weren't saying that Michelle Obama is the goddess of the new World. Honestly, what's so wrong? Is mentioning her going to bring down the apocalypse. I feel like half the people are idiots who can't look beyond the surface. Horrible! Gibbs killed Dearing with a knife, not a gun. Well gee. Maybe there's a reason for that. If people could actually think for five seconds the answer. If someone tried to kill your family, would you shot them once to kill or would you stick a knife in their freaking gut and watch them suffer for much longer.
Why can't Abby admire Michelle Obama? Could anyone for even one second imagine that Abby is a republican? I thought Abby's admiration for this very accomplished first lady was completely in character.
We can't even escape the election in our favorite shows? Common on, now! Very disappointing and lame season opening...they all fell for killing the bad guy in the car after he eluded them for so long? Too easy and too obvious. Bad writing. And shame on them for the Michelle Obama comment.
some people think tony needs fixing,its not tony that needs fixing.
I just remember we NCIS fan brought gary on the show to fix Tony after all the shit Tiva did to him and Now it looks like all that hard work has been for nothing Gibbs hate Tony Ziva think he worthless and Mcgee is no where to be seen.
What happen to these show is the samething that happen to CSI
tony is an important team member they all respect him and yes even ziva does.they all know that they can count on him when needed thats why he is senior field agent and one day he will take over from gibbs,so what he likes to tease and joke around thats why we love him please dont ever change.
I would like to add, just because an episode doesn't pan out as to how you think it should of been done, doesn't mean it was a terrible episode. I hope NCIS is around for a lot more seasons yet.
A show can't stay the same after 10 years. No show does. The idea of Gibbs using his knife was because it was meant to be a personal pay back. Sean Murray is in a lot of the episode time. His place is in the office on most occasions. He is their computer whizz. The episode jumped ahead in time after awhile, it wasn't the next couple of days.
And Linda, if you haven't been watching for 2 seasons then you really can't make a sound judgement about the show.
The show is Gibbs based and this is why he is always the hero. I do agree that Tony's character has been dumber down somewhat.
There is more to come about pst in future episodes. They only have 43 minutes to do an episodes, the rest is paid add time.
NCIS will always be the best. I don't care about tohers opinions on the show. I don't wish to see the day this show ends for good. Besides this first episode was cool. And all the time after season 9 ended I was like Harper Dearing the team will send you to your grave! Ziva and Tony always my faourite. :D Waiting for the next episode.
I was a real fan for first six seasons. I even bought Season 7 out of loyalty. I saw little of Season 8 and almost none of Season 9. Decided to try again this season. Wow was I disappointed. Terrible, unbelievable episode. It felt like the writers just threw it together so they could go home early. Think I'm done. Seems like they're coasting on their fan base now and no longer care about the show.
To answer your question about Eli David, watch the Enemies Foreign/Enemies Domestic arc again.
To answer your question about phones. They did. How did you think McGee knew they were in the elevator?
I digress. There were much worse episodes than this (The Christmas episode of season 9 comes to mind). If it were really as bad as you people say, then the user rating would not be 4.6 stars (.1 star higher than the editor rating I might add). Anyway, speaking of crime dramas... How about that Law and Order SVU premiere? Had a nice "Should have saw this plot twist from miles away, but I didn't." Anyone here think it was better then NCIS' premiere?
Very slow, very sleepy !
I thought maybe it was just not a good night for me, but lots of you agree.
Not a good first show of the year. hope next week is better.
@ Suncatcher - It's not just McGee that tptb ignore. Look at what Tony has become. He was originally conceived as nearly as (and sometimes more) competent and important as Gibbs. Now on a good day, he gets to be Ziva's purse, and maybe gets to get one answer right. Ziva and Gibbs on the other hand seem to have many friends at the top. JMO
This is perhaps one of the worst NCIS episodes I've ever seen and I think I've seen them all and many of them several times.
We've seen many explosions on NCIS before were people have been hurt or killed. So I was rather surprised that everyone on the team not only survived but survived with just a few cuts and bruises. The worst injury for the team was McGee who had perhaps 4 inches of a glass in his gut and he's back at work the next day! Please, why wasn't he in surgery fighting for his life.(that would have made for some dramatic scenes.)
Next Ziva and Toni stuck in the elevator –was this a joke - Ziva's Father, who sent her to the desert in the Horn of Africa to DIE- and who we know she considers dead to her- calls her from Israel to see if she is ok and we see no one in NCIS actually call either Toni or Ziva while they were stuck in the elevator!! If they can receive calls couldn’t they make calls? Plus they have nothing more to share with each other than thigh master
Gotta agree with most, the opener was a bit of a yawn, however, it's still the great NCIS and I can't imagine the day they shut down for good. Big question - what the heck did Sean Murray ever do to the bosses to be so not in most episodes now??? Last season and now S10, McGee is MIA - to the point that many are now asking what happened. Shane Brennan - either write McGee back in or 'splain why we are all asking what the heck is going on!
PS - All questioning the ending and how Gibbs killed Dearing - most warriors will say a knife is far more intimate a way to kill than any bullet. Gibbs wanted to be one-on-one with Dearing when he exacted revenge for what Dearing did to his "family." He could have shot him - he chose the knife.
Woeful. I've watched NCIS since the beginning and honestly feel like that episode was one of the worst ever. Tony and Ziva shrugged off the bombing like it was a near miss car accident and no character that we care about suffered in any lasting way. Add to that the continuation of "Super Gibbs" going up against Dearing alone and knifing him (wtf? You have a SIG Sauer on your belt! Use it!) and it really was just pathetic. What happened to the show that gave us the dramatic death of Kate (no one saw that coming, those who claim they did are lying!) and the strong character episodes when Gibbs retired or when Jenny died? I think this show lost its way some two seasons ago and just hasn't found its way back yet. I pray it does soon because i'm getting close to giving up and tuning out.
A word on Ziva: HER ACTING GETS WORSE AND WORSE EVERY YEAR, WHY THE HELL DOES SHE YELL ALL OF HER LINES, AND DO THOSE WEIRD SHAKING MOVEMENTS WITH HER BODY, I THOUGH OVERACTING WAS A LESSON IN ACTING FOR BEGINNERS.
Not really well done at all. they couldn't have taken him in the street by female agent? how about a tazer to his backside? then gibbs predictably stabs him at end? wow that was just awful and lazy writing. waste of a great actor's talent.
interplay between agents was poor and not ncis like. just a bad opening show.
Too much Ziva - So this year's version of wonder Ziva will be the Ziva who is a passionate caring coworker. How many Ziva cares moments will be contrived this year while other more interesting characters will sit uselessly on the sidelines? What a bore. Yawns, closes eyes, falls asleep.
I loved the episode it was a great crime drama, gibbs looking around at the end seeing his family was ok was dramatic and caring, and the stabbing was great a slow death. All the characters did well. Look forward to seeing Abby nightmares and how gibbs handles that he loves her.
Thanks, David, my sentiments, exactly. Very poor writing.
