@AnneM - it's something like just under 1000 characters counting spaces. If you don't want to write your thoughts first in, like, MS Word and copy into leave a comment, if you are in doubt on how much you're writing, you can select your whole comment and CTRL-C to copy it and then submit comment and if it doesn't all appear can CTRL-V paste it into comment box and delete the part that already appeared. And pretty much everybody who comments does read all the comments and care -- but McGee's not so controversial so no one may argue with you about him.
Tony being left out by Ziva makes sense in that Tony is really and truly one of the bosses and does act like it. He is in charge when Gibbs isn't around (not just because he's senior, but because he tells the rest of them what to do). Even when he showed up, McGee and Ziva went to explanation mode almost like little kids caught by a parent trying to do something they weren't sure they weren't going to be yelled at for. And Tony did essentially order her to tell Gibbs what she was doing -- and she did!
Oh, meant to add that I really didn't like the parking space episode because I thought it was one of those where Sheldon is truly nasty and unlikable -- but I thought Sheldon was really funny in this episode, like this is how they should show his obnoxiousness, him being socially obtuse rather than when he's cunningly nasty with no restraint at all.
The girls were all funny too -- and Raj sure needed someone who could have slapped him upside the head!
I would pick Leonard for tenure. I also think the university would too (of the 3 of them). Remember how everyone at the school was excited about Sheldon moving and conducting his classes online?
I agree with @Will A about the episode and especially about Lily (remember when she told Haley's former boyfriend to get out, that "this is not a hotel"?). My fave moment this ep was Claire putting out the toaster and then pointing it at Phil, "Step away from the children!"
Brennan was perfectly in character. Great, fun episode. I enjoyed it thoroughly -- including the drunk imitation Judge Judy. The reviewer doesn't like too many episodes anymore, but, even when she doesn't like an ep, she always covers the bases and leads into subjects for commenting/agreeing,disagreeing.
@Michael - Your comment is completely out of line. Someone took you to task for hanging onto an ancient quote as justification for your feelings -- and your response is not anywhere near as polite (if you believe someone is mistaken, that's way different than calling them a liar). You've always been quick to call people names. Please stop it.
Palmer reminds me a lot of Daisy on Bones (at least Daisy until this season when she seems a little subdued).
What I loved about this particular episode is that shows tend to treat the costars as second rate side-kicks -- but here we're given a picture of a very competent, successful cop who probably had higher-ups embrace and advance his career early on just like Beckett (and her dead superior) and just like the mayor supports Castle. Ryan is good at his job and others have seen it. He's a detective because he earned it -- and we don't usually get to know that about co-stars on TV shows. Nice episode!
What I'm semi-not-happy about is that the premise of Castle is being slowly dumbed down to a cliche. The premise of the Peter-Pan-ish, imaginative, creative son of an unwed, disinterested, self-centered starlet (who's growing wiser as she gets older and grows up until she's become a mother and grandmother) being a best selling mystery writer who would be interested in working with real cops (and especially one who looked like and was as interesting a person as Beckett) is edgy -- but typical mini-series lost fathers and his mother turning out to be mother-of-the-year and now his becoming a writer only at a late age do to guilt (he didn't build that?) isn't necessary and seems to forget all that came before!
