I do not think that Erin should go over to the dark side. It would make her sick. I spent three and a half years working in a law school library. The end product of my labor was lawyers. I was truly embarrassed by and ashamed of what I was doing for a living, but I was in a trap and had no choice. But I NEVER told anyone what I did for a living, and when an opportunity to leave came along, I snapped at it. Erin would find working with those people to be a similar trap. She should not do it. I did not miss seeing a boxing match. I do not like them, not at all. And Jamie has such a pretty face. I agree with Christine (and Frank) that Nicky's father is an ass. The date of her entrance into college has been known for 18 years. So he buys a new house? Really? I forgot to mention -- I like the new lieutenant. She seems real. I can imagine that it can be somewhat disconcerting to come into a new job where one will be supervising the son of one's boss. She handled it well, with dignity, and gravitas. I was impressed.

Billy Bob Thornton used to be on Hearts Afire, with John RItter. He has done comedy on television before, and quite well. But I would not have recognized him if I had not known in advance when I watched the episode online that it was Billy Bob. One seldom sees him looking that good; he is usually scruffy. I would enjoy seeing him be a recurring character, along the lines of Wil Wheaton -- now and then.
TBD is a good description. I hope if Holmes and Watson get back together in whatever form she is willing to permit, that they don't kill off the kid. It's been done to death. I liked the speech the captain gave, too. It was perfectly reasonable after the way Holmes bolted from the city and from his obligations there. He proved untrustworthy. Watson and the captain would both be fools to trust him easily again. Possibly, ever. I wouldn't, but then, I am old and untrusting anyway. I liked the way Watson found the Bearded Dragon. And I am glad that the tortoise is with her, where it is less apt to be participating in re-enactments of crime scenes. Safer. The episode was full of nice little moments, but the case of the week did not impress. Or unimpress. It was OK.
I did not get home in time to see this episode yet, so I have no comment on that; I will catch it online tomorrow. However, I do have a response to the question you ask above, Would you want to see "Neil deGrasse Tyson in a wet T-shirt bent over the hood of a Porsche."? You betcha! I would take him any way I could get him. He's drop dead gorgeous, wicked smart, and he has a great sense of humor. He is just about perfect.
Thursday night football.
He has a boss who likes him; he has a beautiful wife who loves him and is having his child. He won in a battle of wills with his evil father-in-law. He did a good job running the morgue when Ducky had his heart attack and was out for a long time. He was Tony's go-to guy for questions when Gibbs retired to Mexico and Tony was running the team. He is a fine, upstanding member of society, with a happy present and a shining future. I would call him a success. And the geekiness is quite cute.
This web site is supposed to be for all viewers to share their opinions, not just for slavish fan girls and boys. Without constructive criticism, shows will not get better. And if everyone agreed on everything, it would be a very dull world, and television would be pabulum beyond belief. It is not necessary to tell every person with whom you disagree that they should get on the floor with Bishop. Nor does it add anything to the discussion.
I remember Gerald, but I love Mr. Palmer. He is such a sweet, caring geek.
Random thoughts: You did not mention it, but wasn't this the first episode with no crossover personnel from NCIS? And they didn't need them, either. I thought it was very interesting, and I liked Pride's wife a lot. More than I did their daughter. The assistant to the medical examiner continues to not impress. This series is showcasing New Orleans beautifully; I expect their tourism numbers will go up a lot if this show survives.
I speak only for myself. I don't hate her. I dislike her a lot, and I think the character is poorly written, and portrayed by a mediocre actress. When the focus is off of her, I do not mind her as a placeholder or spear carrier. Pretty much the same as I regarded Kate.
