I liked Palmer's bird song, too. Very pretty. The dialog between the villain and NCIS when they first met him was so pablum that had he NOT committed the original murder, I would have been astounded. It was really bad. No one talks like that unless they are lying.
I didn't have to -- I remember very well how she looked. She was the most emotive I have seen her ever -- except when she was trying to kill Clint Eastwood in Play Misty For Me. She did an entires series playing a police chief, and never moved her face an inch. (Amy Prentiss.) But it is a memorably beautiful, symmetrical, flawless face. But I was liking her aging cougar act last night. It made me laugh.
I thought the events were as outlandish as those in Scorpion this week, not that I do not really like both shows. I do. But when they are so unreal as to be beyond belief, I get less involved in the story, and my mind wanders. In this instance, my mind wandered to Designing Women, and thinking how nice it was to see Scott Bakula and Annie Potts together again. He played her first husband on that show back in its early days. I also was thinking of how bouncy the young Chill Mitchell was when he was in the movie Galaxy Quest where I first saw him. I used to ride motorcycles for decades when I was young; it was the only transportation I could afford. I know how filthy dangerous they are (although I love those, too), and it is sad how he wound up in that chair (I googled it when he was giving those wild reasons to PinZo.) He's a fascinating character, and I am glad to see him back, but so sorry about his circumstances. I like seeing him listed in the character credits at the beginning of the show; it means he will be around a lot. The third thing I was thinking over is that Sebastian's lunacy seems quite a bit toned down from the first season, when most people on this board were ready to drown his character to get rid of him. Does anyone else see the difference? He is quite tolerable now. Or, did I just get used to lunacy? The thing about the actual episode that kept bothering me, as it did with Scorpion Monday night, was the apparent extension of time. Hearts rot when out of a body, and they kept chasing off in different directions, with apparently not enough time going by to accomplish the action of each dash. I have never been to New Orleans, but does that city not have traffic jams like all the rest of the USA? If not, then why use a copter to transport the heart once it was found? Why the sudden need for speed, when they'd been risking progress in traffic all episode? I like this show. But so far, this week is not grabbing one hundred per cent of my mind on CBS. I did not "like" the ending, but I was startled into some respect for the writers, because the survival of PinZo was so very unlikely. And they did NOT serve up a dish of rainbows and unicorns. There was some reality in his death. My own mother was born with a heart defect, and she had experimental open heart surgery for it in 1954 in Chicago. There were six hundred participants in that experiment. We discussed it one time; she said that many died, and some were crippled by it. She did not have the statistics, but I would venture a guess that she might have wound up being the longest-living subject in the experiment. Those deaths, those were the reality of heart surgery. And the character was a nice kid, but I was gratified to see some reality there.
I would also like to have seen the tap dancing video. Short of that, Tim could have done a few steps for them, then and there. The actor was a child actor; it would not surprise me if he got sent to dancing school, and actually CAN tap dance. It was an opportunity they overlooked there. Even if he cannot dance, anyone can fake it for three steps. The trend in the USA lately has been for adults not to marry, but THAT many unmarried, widowed, or divorced folks in a work group does seem unlikely. Therefore, I guess Bishop should stay married. Not that I care. Tim and Delilah really do not seem like a couple. Even now, a decade after they spent nights in her coffin, Tim still has more chemistry with Abby. I do not know why they are trying to force her into this group.
I have had the same one for over ten years. Douglas is right.
I started watching NCIS after Kate was already dead, so I learned about her by going back and buying the all the DVD's for J*A*G and NCIS seasons 1-3. I never liked Kate. (Yes, I know she was not in season 3 but I did not start watching until season 4, and had to catch up.) Ziva was OK, but I thought Tony was too good for her. And I am as indifferent to the blonde as you can get. I was very disgusted by what Delilah said to Tim in this episode. She should not be moving into his place anyway. They need to get a ground floor, larger, handicapped-accessible place. Or break up. I vote for breaking up.
I also miss that Abby. Even her voice was different.
Many quarterbacks have to get new knees ...
I watch it. And NCIS LA. You are not alone.
No television, so I have not yet seen this episode. However, Robert A. Heinlein wrote an excellent short story in the 1940's called By His Bootstraps, and another called All You Zombies. I read them when I was a kid back then, and they introduced me to the concept of time travel paradox. Pretty much everything Heinlein ever wrote is still in print, so if the concept interests you check them out.
