I have never seen Alias, either. That comment went right over my head. I have never seen MOST of the shows which have been on the air in the last twenty-five years. It really would be nice if people would either explain their points in greater detail, or refrain from making them as hints. We do not actually all share the same culture.
"And Ducky was HOT! Who knew?" --Tanya All the aging fan girls knew .... I had to watch it again to catch all the lines that Alice Krige threw away. I think my favorite scene was also the one where Ducky nicked the villain's brachial artery, and verbally tormented him until he was too weak to pose a threat again. So smart!

I loathed Sweets, all the years he was on. But I don't like Aubrey, either. Or the Cuban intern. I am much happier when they have Dr. Edison, or Wendell, or Mr Fisher. I think calling his boss an idiot to his face is a good way to find oneself in another job hunt. It did not ring true to me. Over the course of my life, I thought that of many of my bosses. I never said it. I would have been fired on the spot.
The person who strikes me as Weasel Number 1 is that female reporter. She is as manipulative as they come, and I don't think a true word has come out of her mouth yet.
Douglas -- David McCallum is living proof that sexy lasts forever. You could go out and get some turtlenecks, and start a whole new phase of your life for yourself!
A whole episode full of David McCallum! I was in heaven! I was one of the young ladies with a massive crush on him, and on Illya Kuryakin, and on the young man he played who died heroically in The Great Escape, and on the young man he played on The Outer Limits, whose head grew enormous. He was gorgeous then, he is gorgeous now, and I hope he never retires. The character is so sweet ... I loved the little throwaway scene showing Ducky has always had a difficult time with his mother and her Corgis, too. Consistency. The young actor who portrayed him in this was fine, but no one has ever had that mystique and hint of vulnerability to him the way David McCallum always has. He really is one of a kind. Yep. Aged fan girl. It was a good story, too. Reading the comments of others, and the review, it is quite possible that Ducky and his lady friend may use up some of his large amount of vacation time. I hope it is just vacationing, not retiring, though. One of my grandfathers worked more than full time until he was 83. I think that Ducky could, too.He could, at the very least, supervise or consult. His character would be a considerable loss to the program.
"What do you think Castle fans? Can you wait one more month to see a Caskett wedding?" We have a choice? November sweeps ....
If you think that this country is not infested with religious fundamentalists in 2014, I believe you have not been paying attention. Criminal Minds includes them now and then, itself.
I did not say it offended ME. I said I thought it might offend a category of religious individuals, which does not happen to include me, but which is loud and vociferous when offended. One seldom sees mainstream television have a sympathetic character like Morgan make a comment which is potentially waving a red flag in front of an angry bull. (Touchy fundamentalists.) Writers and sponsors are usually a lot more cowardly, or politically correct, than to do such a thing. I live in a state in which so many are fundamentalist in religion that I, who am NOT, have perhaps become over-sensitized to such things due to the necessity of holding my own tongue. That I watch this program should make it clear that I am not one to be relegated to reruns of Little House on the Prairie, which was an excellent show in its own right, and irrelevant to this discussion.
I do not necessarily blame Morgan for being upset with her. I think that the phrase he used is very daring in this country at this time.
