Procedurals often do write eps based on timely topics--the first to do that were the shows in the Law and Order franchise. BTW, didn't mean to hijack the discussion with an incident seen on NCIS. I won't say any more about it.
"...hey, it's Christmas. I'm as much a sucker for Christmas cheer as the next person." Me too. I was glad this ep had a happy ending considering that the NCIS lead-in's ending was a total holiday buzzkill of the greatest magnitude and highest order.
"Maybe I missed it but I don't recall him even issuing one McJoke at McGee." You did miss it. When Gibbs had McGee take lead, Tony needled McGee with "Merry Crampas!" I gotta agree with Doug's stance on this disappointing ep...but for a considerably different reason. Oh, I enjoyed seeing "the old gang" again and re-acquainting myself with the rules, but now McGee has to associate Christmas with HIS FATHER'S DEATH!!!!!! Whiskey, tango, foxtrot??? BTW, that Heidi person? What a b*tch--I didn't buy her crocodile tears either. Who let her get near children?!?!?!?!?

AMAZING episode!!!!! Not only was it full of suspense, but it also showed that these characters do indeed have hearts and humanity after all! What a happy twist for Happy and what a neat present for Ralph--Rube-Goldburg is always fun.
Yeoman....Yeoman Janice Rand. :-)
That Interpol agent ruined this ep for me. She was an unlikable, unsympathetic character played by a mediocre-at-best actor. I truly hope we've seen the last of her.
Y'know...when Janine was havin' her little epiphany over Rachel's baby bump, I wondered why Rachel didn't see that as a golden opportunity to kick Janine in the throat and just about screamed "you IDIOT!" at the screen. So imagine how gratified I was she brained Janine with the kettle. ...and just like that, the factory deal is over, quickly revealed as a revenges scheme. Have we seen the last of Addison and his grandfather? Lastly, I've NEVER heard of someone needing a key to unlock a door....from the INSIDE!!!!! I'm with the reviewer--this show is starting to circle the drain. FYI, I just read that ABC will debut a new limited series called "Secrets and Lies" on Sundays at 9:00 beginning Mar 1, so I'm guessing that Resurrection will have its season (or series) finale by then.

Well....given the general age of the happy couple, Aiden's years away from a political career so we may never get to know if there'd be repercussions. And since Michaela didn't technically COMMIT murder......
I'm not sure I agree--they were a couple of horny teenagers. No one's likely to care--no real politician's been vilified because of his sexual proclivities prior to the age of 18 so doing so on TV would be hokey.
We waited three weeks for thissssszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz? BTW, isn't the reviewer making a huge assumption that Tom's dead?
