4) @Steve: "To him, Leroy's mere existence is emblematic of the whole experience. I do agree with Gibbs, though ... how did that never come up over the years?" Jethro Gibbs left town during the Bicentennial celebrations in 1976. The only significant time he spent with his father after the funeral of Shannon and their daughter was when Jackson Gibbs stayed at his house while the Mexican cartel was after him. (Because he was angry that Jackson showed up with a date to Shannon and Kelly's funeral, and they became estranged.) So, as he mentioned that the original discussion of the incident took place when he was seven, and he would have mentioned it had there been a subsequent discussion before he left home, I think there was never another discussion. It is NOT something a Boomer would forget. (Speaking as a Boomer whose Dad was in WWII.)
Carter (very, very briefly) felt for a pulse on Laskey's neck, and her face fell when she did not find one. The indication is that he is dead. They have already expanded the bejeebers out of the cast this season. Another permanent member of the "Machine's Gang" would further reduce the time we get to see Mr. Reese and Finch.
Thank you very much, Christine. I never saw 24, so I had no idea what that precisely meant; I am pleased to find out. I am in agreement with most of the other fans on here -- I would like to see Alexis gone for a year or two. Maybe she could use the time to grow up. A nice year abroad at Oxford would do. She wanted to go there.
I would be delighted to continue to watch, as long as they continue to make the show. (Less Alexis would be nice.) I love Lanie dearly, but Perlmutter cracks me up. Arye Gross is so funny. There are still a number of movies from the Thirties and Forties which they have not milked. No reason to give up now. No one else is doing what they are doing, so there is no real competition, nor anywhere for those of us who like this style to go for our fixes.
I'm not incapable of watching several teams of agents working separately in the same episode, but it is not what originally appealed to me about Person of Interest. It was more heroic when it was the geeky, crippled billionaire and the emotionally distant tough guy trying to save ordinary citizens, with the occasional, unwilling help of a clean cop and a dirty cop. Now there are more teams, and at least three distinct and different story lines going on, and I don't feel that a single episode can do justice to any one of those when they are all intermixed the way they were this week. The show is still better than almost anything else, but I am not happy with the new directions. I don't really want to have to take notes to follow from week to week, but they are just about at that point.
They did not let her go. They tried to convince her to stay. She chose to leave, which was her right. It is not fair to blame CBS, NCIS, or the power structure at the studio. They did try. The actress wanted to leave. Admittedly, I am pleased. Still, it was her choice.
Alexis has been treating her father disrespectfully since at least last season, far over the line. I am elderly, my parents are dead, and I still respect their views and do not cross the lines they set out for me by which to live my life. I am tired of this child, and I would like to see her gone for a while. This is not to say anything about the actress. She is a lovely young woman, and listening to her contributions in the commentaries on the DVD's is lovely. This is the fault of the writers and the show runner. A really nice child should not be turning into a poisonous little bitch. Not without a trauma unlike any she has suffered.
I am getting very tired of Nell's superior attitude. She is getting snarky.
I am also having to sign in every time I comment, and don't appreciate it a bit. Oddly, when I am not "signed in", but click profile, it brings me up anyway. I don't like losing my "regular character" status, nor losing those of the others. It was one way I knew who was already vetted, and who wasn't. I find that the pages load much more slowly now. And I too would like to have the oldest first, and the newest last. I preferred the old line boxes to these wide lines. They make following a comment string kind of hard.
The inconsistency is the fault of the writers. In fact, it is ALL the fault of the writers. The actress is a lovely young woman. That said, I have seen have seen Alexis's attitude towards her father go beyond inconsistent and inconsiderate, to insulting, dismissive, and contemptuous. The character is being badly written just now. Perhaps they need to let her rot in her apartment with Pi for a while until the show runner figures out just where he wants to go with her. Right now, she is downright unpleasant to watch. It has not just been this season, either. It started last season.
