RE What's Gibbs building now?
Just noticed the spindle leg on the background table in Gibb's basement.. It was shown, inverted. Its a classic victorian table leg, for writing desks, end tables or other smaller table types. It could be just an easily acquired prop, for ambience; many woodworking magazines have adds for them. They're made by being turned on wood lathes; they are not usually made from such large raw lumber as was seen resting on the saw horses. The leg could imply a smaller piece that Gibbs is building, but doesn't fit as a the project result of the large raw lumber.
Such large pieces are usually 're-sawn' into thinner, shorter boards. Gibb's shop has never shown the equipment needed to do re-sawing; but maybe I recall a lathe having been displayed once. Traditional sail boats sometimes have turned railing spindles and belaying pins. Solid metal cleats are more commonly used today.

Again, I was cut short.
Anyway, the post-premiere storyline for Ducky was like the post-premiere story line for NCIS itself. It was nearly lost, but it recovered. There will still be recovery issues that will run through stories this season.
I think it is nice to see an occasional Ducky-centric episode. To take him out of his milieu and give him a chance to do something different made for an unlikely situation but an interesting story.
Sorry, I was cut short again.
About Tony, he was disrespectful towards Ducky. To his credit, he made up for it by singing Ducky's praises after the interrogation.
Mr. Palmer is called Mr. Palmer because he is not a doctor. He was in school at the time of Broken Bird; one can only guess that Palmer was attending college on a part-time basis. In Ducky's absence, though, Palmer was - if you listen to the episode again - acting coroner.
The business of Ducky's will was just a part of the pre-finale heart attack on the beach storyline. The story a
After reading through the comments, it seems like some things need to be clarified,
Yes, Palmer and Breena are married now - Breena agreed to their getting married a little earlier in the day so that Palmer and Ducky could return to Washington because of the Dearing case.
Gibbs may not have the most pleasant manner, but he did have an appropriate reason for sending Palmer out of autopsy so that he could talk to Ducky. Gibbs was confronting both a friend and a co-worker. Gibbs needed to know why Dr. Mallard had Cmdr. Roberts' body exhumed; he didn't want to disagree or argue with Ducky in front of Palmer. Gibbs had two choices; he could either send Palmer out of autopsy or hecould take the conversation with Dr. Mallard to the elevator conference room.
I'm not a Tony hater, so no one needs to get ruffled about what I'm going to say. Tony may be looking for acceptance, but a person looking for acceptance doesn't gain it by being condescending or disrespectful. If you w to Dr. Mall
Thanks for the support!
@ carol your comments says everything we love tony so all you haters leave him alone go hate someone else.
All I'm saying about Tony is that there are those of us who like him. WE LOVE DI NOZZO!
Tony DiNozzo is a gifted, loyal and brave special agent. The unusual actions are results from his background. He wants to have acceptance. He has been very polite to Mike Franks (when he visited hdqtrs Tony was the only one besides Gibbs that rose and shook hands with him and called him Mr. Franks) and after saying goodbye to McGee's grandmother, he kissed her hand. This is gallant.
There are many times when he risked his life to help others (although it is understood that the other members of the team have done likewise). I hope I will get my information correct (please forgive me if I don't). These are a few of the episodes risking his life for others: MISSING rescued a marine from death, TWILIGHT saved Kate and McGee from car bomb, ANGEL OF DEATH rescued his friend and doctor JEANNE, TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES saved Ziva from Somalia,REQUIEM Gibbs and Jenny Shepherd from drowning, and REKINDLED rescued a young boy from a fire who later became a fire marshall. All I'm saying is the
I would like to make a few comments about Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly). Michael Weatherly is a talented, courteous and amusing actor. I watched the video for 2010 Paley Fest yesterday and the only person they asked about traveling around the world for NCIS was Michael Weatherly. I'm sure the other actors do their share also in promoting the show.They mentioned, however, the places where he went such as Canada, Jamaica,Italy and many other locales.Recently he went to Cannes, France. As of this date, he has done most of the publicity for Season 10. There was a comment about hosts of television shows and how they looked when certain stars were on their show. Not only are they happy to ask MW, but he has co-hosted one segment of E.T. and two of The Talk. Let's give him a chance!
@kevin oh by the way kevin michael weatherly never almost walked off the show some comments are lies.
That not what we want that what we the NCIS fan hate that why were sick of Tiva because that what they want. What we want is for the show to stop making Tony a weak worthless sumbag and making sex a God. Look at Newborn King last year it was a Joke it was a slap in the fact to all men everywhere.
What we the NCIS fan want is for the Tony we had in season 1&2 where he was funny and smart now he act like he in the 1st grade Its like I said they made Tony the new agent and made Ziva the Agent with more experience as being a NCIS agent.
Hell it took Michael Weathlery almost walking off the show for them to do a backstory on him because Ziva hate to share the spotlight with anyone. Hell if you watch the interview with the View and with Kelly and Michael when someone from NCIS is on you can tell in their face how unhappy they are with the way the show is going.
Let face the fact here people these show has lost it way it has lost why people love the show and if it keep
@kevin its only a few tony fans think hes a clown.most tony fans love the way hes portrayed.
It's sad that Tony fans just think the Tony character is nothing but a clown and is disrespected. Most of these fans want a super Tony character who would do everything himself not need a team and have the show renamed Tony staring only the Tony character. These fans need to get over themselves and learn that the show can not be about their character. I like the Tim character the best but I know he won't ever be written as more then he is and will be likely always be treated as a secondary character with small parts and no real epiosdes to focus on Tim and his strengths. Tony at least gets several shows a season that focus on him and show his strengths in a good light.
I'm so excited!!!!! I can't wait to see what Ziva wears to the prom. Will Tony give her his class ring? Will she accept it? I hope they do a vampire episode too!!!!!
@nat hi nat as always your comments make sense,whats with the sadtony fan dont watch if it makes you unhappy,deep down no so called fans can stop tiva its coming and soon.
Yup . The show is being written for 14 year olds now. What obnoxious immature posts . If dani and wanda are what pass for clever and they love the ZCIS formula, that is proof enough for me that the show is dying.
I love how fans of the show are called haters and pathetic by people who don't watch the show
@Wanda ROFL I'm all out of caf-pow!! Don't think you were heard over the "incessant whining"!! LOL Heavily Medicated is MY guess, Wanda. Perhaps "Super" Ziva can swoop down with HER "Super" Man TONY and they BOTH can put these haters out of their pathetic Misery ;-)
I. am. SOOOOOOO. gonna. LOVE. Season10!!! Squeeeeeeeee!!
Also, boonies - the second in command part of your list has been incredibly diminished in order to give us super Ziva all the time. She is now regularly portrayed as far more skilled and respected by Gibbs than Tony. In earlier seasons, the writing of Tony made it clear that he was an extremely gifted and brilliant agent. Now we're lucky if he makes one minor and generally fairly mundane connection. 95% of the time his only purposes are to be eye candy, and provide the humor of self humiliation, which seems to have the added benefit of elevating Ziva.
Oh, for the love of NutterButter!!! All this "SAD", incessant whining over a character NO fan will EVER be able to control since the show bosses have set the tone for what THEY want him to be is making me thirsty!!!
Anybody got an extra Caf-Pow?????
@boonies - you're right. And the sad thing for Tony fans is, he used to be a character with more dimension, purpose, and importance, and consequently the show was far more clever and interesting because MW, in addition to fulfilling the roles you accurately described, is a wonderful nuanced actor. When his character was written with more depth, the show sparkled in a way that it no longer does. Striving to feature an actress simply because she is very pretty, and appealsl to a younger demographic has created a show with far less depth and intelligence.
Well, IMO Tony's role has 3 parts: play 2nd banana, provide comic relief, and be eye candy. He does them all very well. I'm sure most of the other secondary cast members would kill to get the screen time he has. He's a member of the team...nothing more. I just wish the stories would improve. The writing leaves plot holes you could drive a truck through.
@MzLady - Once again, after making broad proclamations that reflect nothing more than the posters own opinions, you claim that you won't "waste time" listing the things she - claims - are apparent. That is such transparent BS. Nat can't list them because they don't exist. And as usual the arrogant non reply gives me the choices to leave or suck it up, as if you have the authority to make this happen. You and Nat and others who see what they want to see, just can't take opposing opinions that mess up your little tiva world, where the lovely, tragic and perfect Ziva condescendingly puts up with the inferior man that Tony is because deep down she's such an amazing person. I see her as abusive, cruel, arrogant, self absorbed, and stiff as a board. Tony would do well to run away as fast as he could. But in order to appeal to teenage mentality, you may be right. This may be the year of tiva.
@Nat & Dani - Great job. Point made!!
I'd like to step in, so that we can end this. "Sad" fan..Nat already DID make her point. She is backed up by virtually everyone who posts on this site, and by the site runners themselves. You clearly don't read the reviews OR the RT discussions. More importantly...the Series backs up what Nat said. CBS backs her up. She doesn't need to waste time comparison listing out the "faults" of every team member, when anyone who's actually WATCHED the series can see the human imperfections for themselves. It sounds like YOU have chosen to only see what you WANT to see. You have two options at this point: Either "troll away" your sorrows on here & remain "Sad", or Change the Channel on your remote & get GLAD. NCIS is what it is, period. Case Closed.
