NCIS Round Table: "Crescent City"

From a linguistic point of view, you're right, but Fornell is still "odd man out"--no one else uses the correct Italian pronunciation, including the writers.

I agree with the reviewer--there are sooooooo many things about this Kensi-Jack thing that just don't add up. 1. Kensi, you're an undercover agent--why did you blow what might have been HIS cover?
2. Jack didn't come looking for her--he had no idea she was in the country. If he did know, and he's not the White Ghost, why not come forward?
3. His story about his life in Afghanistan, though touching, seems disingenuous. He just dropped out and walked away? Don't we call that "defecting"? On a more pleasant note, loved LOVED LUUUUUUUUUUUUURVED Nell as the haughty Ms. Prim--gettin' all uppity and ordering Sam around was hilarious!!!! Eric, dude...lose the panda PJs, put on a pair of big-boy pants, and ASK. HER. OUT.....DAMN IT!!!!!!!

"You'd think people would be reading poetry since novels are too long, but I don't see the surge of poetry or the short story." Well, true a novel's not meant to be read in one sitting, but folks wanting answers can always keep reading--I"m sure you've heard about teens pulling all-nighters in order to read the Harry Potter novels on the day they're released. However, in the world of TV, we have to wait another week. :-)

I think you may have hit upon the issue, though perhaps you didn't mean to. LOST is a done deal and ABC somehow trying to "recreate" it, this time in a small midwestern town with baggage that CLEARLY doesn't fit neatly in an overhead bin, may not be sitting well with some people. Others, like me, may think instant gratification takes too long. :-) I also have to wonder (and BELIEVE ME...I know this is a stretch) whether the events surrounding MH370 are a contributing factor--seems every time we hear from the Malaysians, they raise more questions than they answer (but that's a whole other discussion on a completely different site).

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?!?!?! :-)
