NCIS Los Angeles Review: Sugar Bear
5/9/2012 7:30 AM
Fun episode, and like the review says, a welcome bit of fluffy fun before what is sure to be an intense finale! I'm not a Kensi/Deeks shipper, but I certainly can't deny their chemistry!
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: The Four Angels
5/2/2012 7:14 AM
I enjoyed it! I agree with Carla's review, neither team seemed out of place on Part 1 or 2, the personalities & banter meshed very well. I agree the Comescu angle was dropped rather suddenly, but the small pox threat still made for an exciting storyline throughout. I wonder if Danny will actually name his car "Winifred" (personally, I think he should opt for "Henrietta"!) If they do another crossover in the future, I'd love to see McGarrett join in the fun, it would be great to see he and Sam banter about old times.
Hawaii Five-0 Review: Welcome Hanna and Callen
5/1/2012 7:43 AM
I watched NCIS LA from the very beginning, and am a newer fan of H50 (beginning of this season). I enjoyed last night's ep, I thought the writers did well with integrating LA's Sam & Callen into the H50 fold, and am looking forward to watching Part II tonight. To Reviewer Jim G., I can understand your impression of O'Donnell's "Callen" as a humorless sourpuss from this ep, but that has much to do with this episode's Comescu Family link, and what it means to him. He actually has a wonderful bond with Sam and the rest of his NCIS LA "family", and the banter between he and Sam in particular is priceless. NCIS LA does a fine job of blending lots of humor in with the action and crime solving, and I think overall it has a very similar "feel" to it as H50.
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: Inter-Agency Non-Cooperation
4/11/2012 8:31 AM
I enjoyed the ep. It was great seeing Nate again, and I do hope that they continue finding feasible ways to bring him back (I think Shane B. alluded to that in a recent interview). My curiousity is peaked re: the history between he and Nell. I first thought they had dated in the past too, but I think last night established that wasn't the case. I think she and Eric make a good team, and potentially a good couple, as long as it's more in the background.
Didn't see the twist coming, either! I figured it was Mia, and it surprised me to find out otherwise. And once again, I really, really love the chemistry with this cast. Each and every one of them meshes perfectly (well, with the notable exception of Granger, but even he became a wee bit easier in his most recent appearance).
NCIS Review: The Good Father
3/29/2012 12:08 AM
Loved Vance from the beginning, thought the chemistry between he & Gibbs was great. Rocky nailed it in this ep. Tony still drives me nuts though, I often find him the "weak link" in this show. Would have liked more Ziva and McGee.
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: It's Not a Game
3/28/2012 11:45 PM
Emotional episode, that left a lot of viewers, IMO, on both sides of the fence. I thought LL did a fantastic job in this ep, as well as Chris, etc. This show keeps getting better and better, and in this case, IMO, better than the "mothership". Gives one a lot to think about, whether the ends justifies the means.
Dancing With the Stars Unveils Season 14 Cast
2/29/2012 8:25 AM
I must confess I've never watched DWTS before, but I'll have to tune in to watch and cheer on Donald Driver, arguably one of the classiest, all around nicest men in the NFL. Go Donald "Quickie"!
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: That's My Girl!
2/29/2012 8:20 AM
I really enjoyed this, great roundup to Part I. I agree with the reviewer, I would think some of this would inspire some deeply felt changes in Kensi, particularly the reunion with her mother. I've been softening towards Granger too, especially now that we learn he goes much deeper than just a surly curmudgeon "supposedly" hell bent on breaking up the team. That wasn't his mission at all, especially after realizing Kensi's innocence. Should be interesting seeing how he and Hetty interact now that she knows she can (probably) trust him, I do enjoy their dynamics.
NCIS Review: If You're Not Need to Know, You Don't
2/29/2012 8:11 AM
Fun ep, I enjoyed it. I really liked Ned, pairing he and McGee up was inspired. And it looks like Gibbs has himself an intriguing new nemesis, I'm sure we haven't seen the last of him. Also, I loved that Ziva enjoyed herself with the school speech, and is returning for another go at it!
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: Happy Anniversary!
2/8/2012 9:36 AM
Loved this ep! I also knew Sam wouldn't kill Callen (loved that he said he pulled his punches!) but that didn't ruin it for me. I enjoyed the parallels between Sam/Callen, and the courier partners. I admit, I did like Granger much better in this ep, and his mistake humanized him. I thought he treated the team & Hetty much more respectfully, this time around. Also loved his off-the-cuff comment about Hunter.
Alcatraz Series Premiere Review: Welcome to the Rock
1/17/2012 8:39 AM
I enjoyed it. Enough mystery, twists & surpises to keep me watching for answers. I thought the cast was very good.
Leverage Review: Boys Will Be Boys
12/21/2011 6:52 PM
I enjoyed both of the "Girls Night/Boys Night" episodes, but I did like the "Boys Night Out" better. Like others have mentioned, it was fun to see someone from the past return, and I would like to see more of that in the future. And I always love seeing Hardison and Elliot together!
CI-Ray: Returning to NCIS!
12/21/2011 6:41 PM
I don't mind CI Ray, but I have to disagree with the article. I see absolutely no sparks, romantic or otherwise, between he and Ziva...
Scott Wolf Returning to NCIS January 3
12/21/2011 6:32 PM
Looking forward to Scott Wolf's Stratton return, just to see what he's up to. Not sure how I feel about CI Ray's return, but I know I DON'T want to see EJ return. Ever.
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: What's In the Box?
11/9/2011 7:54 AM
I loved this ep! The plotline alone was good enough to keep me glued to the screen, but as the review mentioned, it's also the little side bits and banter between this team that I look forward to every week. The waltz in the beginning (I really wanted to see where it would go with Sam/Callen, darn that interruption!), Deeks saving Kensi's butt, and of course the flowers between Nell and Eric (and it was funny, but no surprise that Hetty caught Eric returning the purloined flower off her desk, at the end!) I'm greatly looking forward to the continuation of this one. Sad to see another friend of Sam's lose his life...
NCIS Review: Can Diane Be All Bad?
11/2/2011 9:35 AM
I always love seeing Fornell make an appearance! And the poster above is right, Gibbs and Fornell are like an old married couple, in many ways.
The presence of Fornell AND Diane in one episode kind of overshadowed the actual crime plotline for me, which I normally don't like, but in this case, I was more than willing to make an exception. Good episode.
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: Modern Day Ninjas
11/2/2011 9:31 AM
Another enjoyable ep, for me. Loved seeing Eric and Nell in the field, their stint at the airport was priceless!
I'm glad we got another mention of Sam's family, and possibly a meeting in the future? Curious to know (if we ever get to find out) what his current assignment is. And I loved his heartfelt speech about leaving no Marine behind, to Hetty. Good on ya, Sam. I'm glad he was able to change Hetty's mind, and allow them to be "Ninjas". Deeks was hilarious with the luggage fiasco, he looked like he was thoroughly enjoying himself!
I think this entire team meshes very, very well; I look forward to their banter and interactions, every week!
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: The Greatness of Hetty
10/27/2011 8:49 AM
I enjoyed this ep very much. Intriguing, tightly constructed plot, and some excellent banter amongst the team. I think these characters have excellent chemistry, and are fun to watch, IMO, more and more each week. Loved seeing Hetty in the field, and although the result of her visit was somewhat disturbing, it served as a stark reminder of how things were back in her heyday. She knew that she had to do his this "favor"...
Loved seeing Sam's magic act with the son!
NCIS Review: Thirsting For Something Better
10/27/2011 8:36 AM
It wasn't one of my fave eps - another member of the team falls in love with someone who turns out to the be the villian? Been done several times before, I thought it was hackneyed. And poor Ducky, he deserves better. Saw Mary as the villian right away. The actual crime part of the plot was lacking, almost disjointed, could have been tightened up considerably. Someone mentioned the woman on the computer screen at the end was David's real life wife? How fun, didn't catch that!
It wasn't all bad though, there were some very fun moments of banter amongst the team, and that was very enjoyable. Next week's ep looks good, looking forward to it, and also to the NCIS LA ep, which looks very good (I enjoyed that ep much more, this week).
10/26/2011 9:40 AM
I enjoyed this ep very much. Tightly written storyline, the banter between team members was fun as always, and Hetty, as mentioned in the review, is always a surprise and mystery. Her final visit to her old colleague was disturbing, but she did what she knew she had to do. A stark reminder of how things in her business were in "the old days". This show *is* hitting it's stride, IMO, and I have to say, I also enjoyed LA this week much better than NCIS.
NCIS Review: "The Penelope Papers"
10/6/2011 8:30 AM
I liked this ep more than anything I've seen on "classic" NCIS for a while now. McGee is one of my fave characters, so it was wonderful to have some focus on him again, and I've been a Lily Tomlin fan for a long time. Loved seeing Penelope and Ducky happily strolling off at the end for a nice dinner and cocktails. Would love to see them bring her back.
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: "Backstopped"
10/6/2011 8:21 AM
It wasn't my favorite ep, but I still enjoyed it. Good villian, and some good giggles with the team shake-ups. Very glad Hetty is back where she belongs, and I'm looking forward to her finally sharing her secrets with Callen about his past (and I hope we viewers get to hear some of it, too!) I wasn't a huge fan of Hunter, but this ep gave me a lot more insight into her and her deep undercover work. Loved how she disappeared at the end before Callen had a chance to confront her about "Ashley"... I'm loving this season so far, and looking forward to more of it!
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: "Cyber Threat"
9/28/2011 8:35 AM
I thought it was another great ep, loved how well they portrayed that fractured feel, without their beloved Hetty there to run the show. I don't actually dislike Hunter, I think she knows nearly as much about Operation Comescu/Callen's background as Hetty does, and like Hetty, is wearing the knowledge very close to her chest. Loved Nell showing her stuff around the sassy NSA (?) agent; I started out ambivalent re: Nell, but I love her to pieces, now!
NCIS Season Premiere Review: His Navy, My Team
9/21/2011 3:14 PM
It wasn't their best effort in premieres, IMO. MW did a fine job, nice to see a change of pace with Tony. I always enjoy NCIS even on a bad day, but this one didn't really leave me on pins & needles wanting to see more of this particular arc.
NCIS: Los Angeles Season Premiere Review: Kill Them All!
9/21/2011 3:00 PM
Dynamite ep, all around! Was everything I could have hoped for, and more. Can't wait to see how the background mysteries of Hetty/Callen unfolds. The scenes with Hunter caught me way off guard! Was fleshed out nicely with the lighthearted scenes with Eric/Nell, and I enjoyed seeing Vance there, fretting about his team and their safety. This has been Must See TV for me for awhile now, and this ep just cemeted it firmly into place!
