Tobin Bell did a guest shot on Stargate SG-1 in 1998, in which he played the leader of a group of humanoid refugees with superior intelligence, and in his character's case, an insultingly superior attitude. He was utterly brilliant in the role. (Omoc of the Tolan) I have not seen him very much, but when ever I have seen him, I totally believed he was whatever his role said he was. He is a scary good actor. It was good to see him again. Adrienne Barbeau is always a pleasure to watch. I became a fan when she was on Maude, and in The Fog. She did a nice turn on Dexter, and this role was good enough (IMHO) to garner her an Emmy nomination. Criminal Minds is an amazing program ... I liked having Garcia make verbal love to the whole team now, rather than just to Morgan. That was getting old.
I noticed that, too. I just sat there and giggled. I really liked this pilot.
She is playing a different character. I just think it is cute. I love stuff like that.
I think they will continue to take one step forward, two steps back, from this point, with Kensi and Deeks. Since the show has been renewed, they are not going to risk incurring the "Moonlighting Curse". She could not take her eyes off of the man she used to love, and Deeks saw that. He is both proud and insecure. He has already declared himself. She's the one who is going to cause problems.
I find it charming that Zoe McLellan, who was a regular on J*A*G, is a prospective cast member on NCIS: New Orleans, which would be a spin off of NCIS, which was itself a spin off of J*A*G. Incestuous much? (I like the actress, I like both her characters, I love Scott Bakula, and if it makes, I will watch it. Not too crazy about NO, but that's OK.)
Not all "happily ever afters" last very long. My job is volunteering for a web site which hosts photograph of grave markers for relatives who cannot visit in person. Some of them will break your heart. And not all "happily ever afters" get sixty years together. There was a newlywed couple on that missing Malaysian airliner last month ... I think that since Barney is a shallow, immature, profoundly damaged person, and since Robin is as selfish as she is, their marriage lasted about as long as one could expect. And it was perfectly clear through nine years that Robin was indeed the love of Ted's life. I really loved the touch of showing up with the blue French Horn, and enjoyed envisioning how he stole it this time. I appreciated the way the story ended, except for those kids. They were always a pain, and they ended up a pain. My own niece is like that, though, so I suppose it is the way kids are this generation. I was quite satisfied with the ending. But I am neither young, nor romantic.
I think that it is fitting that Ted and Robin ended up together. They always had a connection ... I do agree that divorce is always sad. But then, I always thought that Barney's life was kind of sad. The episode showing him as a hippie in the coffee shop explained WHY he seemed so sad. It was nice that he finally got a person to love wholeheartedly.
"Good looking" is in the eye of the beholder. There are very few males in television who are more handsome than Simon Baker. The man is drop dead gorgeous. However, the actor playing Marcus is quite handsome, just in a different way. His "flattery" sounded sincere to me. And where is it written that only handsome or pretty people should be allowed to be attracted to other people, anyway? Have you SEEN the general population of this planet?
This totally reminded me of watching The Sting for the first time in the theater when it came out. What a delight! The way it played out was indeed over the top, but who cares? This was the best episode since before Red John was revealed, IMHO. I would be happy if they make this show into an offshoot of this new style. And I was never a Lisbon-Jane shipper, so I am pleased to see her getting some interest from a handsome man.
