Thank you for saying that and for providing that point of view from Christopher Waild. I agree completely with everything you said and with what he said. But, unfortunately, the haters on these pages will never see it any differently. I have stated several times that people should just stop watching a show that makes them that upset and angry only to be told that I am sanctimonious and an entitled Ziva lover. But I am glad to know that there are other people out there who are rational and feel the same way I do.

I think it was Chris Wailid who responded to a tweet complaining about idiot Tony & Super Ziva with the comment "if that is what you want to see or if that is what you are looking to see, that's what you are going to see" (paraphrasing) and I think that's true - people are using those arguments as an excuse to justify their Ziva hate & they look for every little thing to blow out of proportion.

The show's writers sure don't see those things and most of the fans don't either.

If you view the show thru a lens of hate & disappoint - you are sure to find something to fit that bill. But, it beats the hell out of me as to why you would continue to watch a show where your vision of the characters vary so drastically from that of the shows.

The whole Tony in the director's chair was a shout out to Michael Weatherly as the "director" of the prior episode. Think about it. They never go over such items in the director's office. Then Tony making the comment about it was a nice chair. He loved the directing. It makes sense if you think about it. Otherwise, it was an odd scene.

Of all the dysfunctional daddies, I think exploring McGee's father was the most appropriate. We've heard about him from time to time since the show started, and I got the sense early on, from the way he froze when he interacted with Gibbs, that his dad had a lot to do with it.

McGee doesn't have a bad family though. His mother, grandmother and sister are all close and positive people in his life.

When I watched the episode, I was disappointed. There was so much advance hype, starting back in December when they expected it to air in February, that I had my own ideas what would happen. And Glasberg said, at that point, that there would be a scene with Abby "being a shoulder for McGee to lean on" which I was looking forward to.

But I'm liking the episode more and more now that I've gotten some distance.

@Kris--I don't think the writers are portraying Tony as a bumbling idiot or less competent than Ziva. Do you watch Castle? Tony and Castle are exactly alike (to me). Just because somebody is a 9-year-old on a sugar rush doesn't make them bad. In fact, both Tony and Castle pull things from popular culture that ties into the case at hand very well. The William Shattner reference Tuesday night was brilliant; and while small, did help Tony while working on the case.
The difference between Tony and Ziva is frame-of-reference. Tony was trained as a cop and thinks like a cop. Ziva was trained in the "trade"; a very different frame-of-reference. They are both competent and they both respect each others' abilities. I think the writers write it that way.

The reason that the reviewer brought up Tiva is to increase his page hits & comments. One of the reasons that TPTB drool over the Tiva is the reaction it brings out in the fans. Tiva lights up the boards and this is why Tiva will ALWAYS be a part of NCIS.

Personally, I love it & look forward to seeing them every week.

@Michael I have the Season 9 DVD set too, and yes, there is commentary by both MW and Cote for "Housekeeping".

Care to try again?

I liked the episode; possibly the best McGee centric episode outside of Twisted Sister. I hope the writers don't drop this development never to be broached again. Hopefully, we will learn that McGee & his dad got past their hard feeling & are now making the best of the time they have together.

As far as Tiva is concerned - Hell yes! Bring it on! I love the chemistry between these two.

And I too have listened multiple times to the Michael/Cote commentary from S9 DVD Housekeeping! It is apparent that MW & CdP adore each other & are good friends which helps to explain their amazing onscreen connection.

And shame on you @Michael for accusing someone of lying just because you don't know your facts. That is the pot calling the kettle black as you are well known for "making" up facts along the way to suite your agenda.

I am looking right now at my season 9 boxed set for NCIS. I am looking right now at the back of the container for disc 3 (as "Housekeeping" is the 4th episode on disc 3) and it says right there after the synopsis of the episode:
"Audio commentary with Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo".

I have the season 9 DVD set and I have listened several times to the commentary by Cote de Pablo and Michael Weatherly for the "Housekeeping" episode. Obviously, you must not own season 9 on DVD. I did not lie about the commentary. I would not feel a need to lie about something like that. I am not hiding a thing. Buy the dvd, put in the disc to play the "Housekeeping" episode and click on the spot that says watch episode with commentary. If you do not own the season 9 dvd set, then I can not help you And of course it would not be on You Tube because that would be a copyright infringement.
