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!
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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"!
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.
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!
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.
