Yeah, I don't watch it. That's why I own all previous seasons on DVD, well-worn by now, plus all the DVDs of every season of the parent show, JAG. I am as entitled to my opinions as anyone else. I did not like Ziva very much. I loathed Kate. And I don't like this one, the way they are writing her. I have been a supervisor of people much of the last fifty years. Anyone walking into a job, newly working for me, who started disobeying me and making their own rules and telling me how to run my operation when they have been there so short a time that the ink is not dry on their paperwork yet would have been shown the door, pronto.
I think it looks like they are going to be centering on this marvelous new blonde agent with black eyebrows now, rather than dividing time more equitably. I like her less than I did in the first go 'round, and I think her making independent decisions in the field again as she did last episode shows that she is no team player, and has problems with authority. I think the power structure of the casting on this show must be male. Why else would they hire her? And she appears to be Teflon. If Fornell is stupid enough to take Diane back, he deserves what she will do to him. He is sticking his head into a wood chipper with her. When their suspect turned out to be Secret Service, I just started laughing. NCIS, the FBI, an IRS agent (Diane), AND a Secret Service agent? Come on! I love this show, but this was ridiculous. And I have seen quite enough of the ex-Mrs. Gibbs, ex-Mrs. Fornell. Her next visit should be no sooner than season after next. She does not improve upon acquaintance.
That is not his house. That is a library he has purchased from the city during the downsizing. She's locked there because it is their headquarters, and the most recent time he locked her up, she returned to her cage of her own free will, after being free. She won't last forever; it would appear that no one does, on that show. But for the present, those involved feel that she is needed, and those are her quarters. Without watching it again, which I do not intend to do, I am not one hundred per cent sure he locked the padlock this last time. I thought at the time that it looked like he did not....
Good one! My only quibble is that she seems to be already married, so she cannot marry Gibbs. (Unless her wedding ring, like Patrick Jane's, is worn in memorium. Seems unlikely.) So do all of her current abilities, and I have a memory like Sheldon's on The Big Bang Theory. These memories are rare. Seems like a copy, to me.
That is Larry Manetti, who played Rick on Magnum P.I.
"Eric Hochberger: Forgive the cheesy response, but I am thankful to our readers for their patience and advice during our most recent site upgrade. We hope you are all satisfied, we appreciate your input - and we look forward to a terrific 2014!" So, does this mean that your upgrade is done? Because there was mention of restoring the ability to stay signed in, and also of retaining our previous identities as "regular characters", etc., and I don't see either of those things happening yet ...
To be fair, I believe that Danielle Ruah's maternity leave backed Shane Brennan into a corner. This is a reasonable incident to cover that time. To be honest, I doubt very much whether anyone learned anything from the previous ongoing NCIS love/not-love relationship, since NCIS remains at the top of the ratings. That is what they pay attention to, not the whinings of fans such as we, on boards such as this.
I said then, and I maintain, they should have ended it after season five. It has been downhill since Emily Deschanel got married. The chemistry between her and Boreanaz vanished. And that stupid "Hannah" story line was poison. I used to love this show, too.
I have never seen this show before, because I remember the original so fondly. But, when Carol Burnett shows up on something, I will watch it. Lovely to see her. It reminded me of when she was on Magnum P.I. back in the day -- she looks good in Hawaii.
