Possible correction: "What did Marty want with Jacob on the ball field?"
I think you mean Caleb, not Marty.

As for this show, I can deal with one cliffhanger, but now we've got several. Like the other posters, I'm hoping the writers give us answers before they start creating more questions.

Meanwhile, episode's aired on both coasts and the review for," Blue Bloods" (which airs AFTER Five-O has been posted. Chop chop, tick tock.....

I was a little disappointed that the episode didn't give Metcalf more screen time. However, I'm glad they acknowledged the "disconnect" between Mary's faith and her actions. I just wish we could have seen the man with the perfect booty. :-)

The murder mystery thing didn't make much sense to me, but I thought the epilogue--the quasi-Luddite gets stood up--was funny.

Lastly, I've noticed that the writers have taken to "regrouping" the characters in several of the previous eps (eg, in this one, Sheldon and Howard were separate from the others). Glad to see they're shaking things up.

"So, maybe Peter-Pan-ish and self-centered/short-sighted (rather than nasty-selfish)"

See to me, that's just a long-winded way of saying "control freak." :-)

Not sure if you'll see this, but as of today (11 Mar), I learned that Laurie Metcalf (Mary Cooper, Sheldon's Mom) WILL be on this week's ep of TBBT (13 Mar). Can I call it or WHAT?!?!?! :-)

You need taking to task when you take comments about a female character in a tv show and start making cracks about women in real life job situations. It does not matter how many episodes you have watched. Your comment was misogynistic.

Croaker, I'm sorry you found my posting offensive, but i'd be VERY careful with your adjectives. Corny as it sounds, some of my best friends are women. At work, my supervisor is a woman, and I work on a project team composed predominantly of women.

Perhaps my extrapolation was a stretch, but I know better than to make hateful comments about women.

Read my post again mic. If you're gonna get defensive about something, at least make sure you've read it correctly.

I didn't say that ALL of the women were bashing Bishop; I said that OF THOSE POSTERS who were, most were women. That means some women WEREN'T hating on Bishop and some men were. I was curious as to why there seemed to be such a difference between genders so I hoped someone would chime in. Fortunately, someone did, and they didn't bite my head off.

Thanks for "biting" Lori G, and for not taking me to task. I'm relatively new to the show having watched only the past few 3-4 seasons consistently (I catch the earlier seasons via USA). I don't have the historical,perspective on the canon of female characters so,your explanation was very enlightening.

Week after week I see comments from people doing some Bishop-bashing, and I can't help but notice that the majority of them are women. What's the problem ladies? Is it the All-American Barbi-doll looks as opposed to Ziva's more Mediterranean look? Is it that Bishop is more cerebral and Ziva is more physical? Is it that Tony doesn't have a potential love interest anymore (Bishop's married and even Tony has enough sense not to "go there")?

I don't even WANT to imagine how you female Bishop-bashers react to a new woman at work, or the new member of the book club, or the new woman in yoga class who looks just a tad better in Lululemon than you do.

I'm no fan of Tony Sr because the whole "male menopause" thing is kinda overdone. However, this time, his intentions were honorable and it was nice to see the DiNozzos getting along for a change.

As for the "crime du semaine", I liked how it unfolded and I enjoyed seeing Bess Armstrong again; she's aging so nicely. She might make a good love interest for Gibbs--they'd certainly be an attractive couple.

Didn't really enjoy Tony's "Sam Spade" routine--or that he defied authority and started poking around--he's like some kid who won't listen, but I guess we should have expected it.

On a final note to poster Dean: no shit, your rants against the pro-Ziva crowd are getting kinda tiresome and the butchering babies analogy is just plain disturbing. Reduce your risk of a stroke and just let it go!!!!!!!
