Sounds lame as I've never met anyone who can just by being there get a girl into bed. I must have missed that part of college and life. Unless you're George Clooney or Johnney Depp, and even they have some women who don't like them.
I am so sick of the "Sheen" fans and their ever loving writing of criticism. Don't watch the show. Charlie ain't coming back! Get over it! This is what it's going to be from now on and if you don't like, don't watch and please, please, please, don't write anything on here about wanting Sheen back. It ain't happening! This was a better episode and they seem to be finding their way a little bit. I hope they continue to find their rythymn as time goes on.
Like everyone has already said, great episode. The writing has been exceptional this season - the references, the way they keep bringing the past into the present, - really good stuff. Wish they had put a football into Gibbs' hand too. Really hard for a show to top itself, but his one does every week. Loved the, "You're my Shannon." line but the best was, "We pronounce it, Gibbs." was the line of the week. Don't know if you read these things, but keep it up!
If you don't like the show anymore, then don't watch it! I am so sick of people writing, "Bring back Charlie" (like that's an option!) or "I don't like the show anymore." then don't watch! I'm watching to see if it gets better. That's my choice. You have a choice too. Don't watch.
This wasn't their best ep, by far. Wasn't that tight or believable and what have they done with the overall plot for this season with the "Phantom 8". Would love to see Dietzen's name as a regular. When I origianlly saw Cheryll Ladd's name up there I was thinking about a girlfriend for Gibbs. It's been too long since he's had one. Would be nice and unusual to see HIM smitten for a change. Would really be nice for his character to develop and to have some real luck in that area, for a change and to deepen his character development.
They have really left it all on the screen these last few weeks. I've loved it. As a luke warm fan, these last few weeks have been great and have helped me get really excited about this show again. Keep it goiing, guys!
Agree w/everything BabyRotty said. Been waiting for this show to do something this season and so far nothing but rehashed plot lines and jokes. Last year it was starting to get old even with Sheen. Now, it's downright dismal. Lorre needs to put this one to bed or get a plotline that we can believe. TBH, no grief for Alan or Jake or Evelyn? Kinda hard to believe even though we know what happened in real life. Need to find something we can believe in w/Kutcher because right now there's zilch.
Having been a watcher of the show from the beginning, it's hard to take this season. Lorre is so good with his other series, TBBT, MM, that it is hard to watch this show decline as much as it has. I really wanted to give it a chance, but, like others have said, Kutcher is parroting himself from the 70's Show and the other characters seem just sad. It is not the belly laugher it used to be. It is running on fumes of its past glory. Sorry Chuck, but until you make me laugh again, this show sucks and I used to look forward to it every week like a dessert to a meal. I know it's not your fault that Sheen had a substance abuse induced meltdown, but I don't know what you could have done differently to have made the show better.
I'm sure like many adoptees that learning you're adopted is easier when your parents tell you when you are young. Mine did. I've wondered at various stages of my life why I was adopted, but that's water under the bridge right now. Each adoptee is different. Each situation is different. I was only told by my father a few years ago that I was a private adoption. Public adoptions are usually much harder to find out about in certain states. It's very unusual for anyone to get info on a birth sibling through a confidential source like they did. I found it unusual for them to let Abby know that there was another match.
As much as I like this show, and I do, I am very worried by Sean Murray. I really felt like it was an effort for him to talk on this episode. His voice is raspy and it doesn't have the same inflections that it used to have. I've watched every episode of NCIS and this really scares me as "weight loss" doesn't affect a voice unless it is something more than this. Having had cancer with long bouts of radiation and chemo, I can speak with some experience here. I wish they would tell us the truth about him. Loved the episode and loved Abby's role in it. Glad to see them doing some character work here. They have such wonderful actors in all the roles and it's good to see them using their full range of talent.
