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.
I usually get the DVD's from the library when each season is over, and watch them then, or not. I have missed huge parts since the end of season 5. But I do tend to skim and look for Caroline and Hodgins. I think he is a big treat, too.
I agree that the fight scene was ridiculous. I turned away and read emails until they were done with that. I also skipped most of the dancing. Actually, I generally skip the show -- tonight there was nothing else on and I was down for the night. About the only thing I liked was Caroline. She still tickles me. Nice character, and I have read, an even nicer actress. More Caroline, that would be nice.
You must be rather young yourself, if you truly believe that "no one can make anyone do anything." People make other people do things they do not want to do all of the time. Peer pressure is a dreadful thing, especially amongst the young, who desperately want to fit in. I did things I did not want to do until the day I retired. And it took until I was over fifty for me to get secure enough in my own mind to ignore peer pressure entirely. It was totally believable that Rossi would have succumbed to it as a teenager.
My view at his trial would vary, depending on whether the specific trial for which I was a juror was for murdering the men, who presumably were two of the six who castrated him, or whether it was a trial for murdering the women, who presumably were just white. I figure the murders of the men, under the circumstances, were fair. They deserved it. Those of the women were not, and for those, I would convict him. It may be Biblical "justice", to punish sins of a man onto his children several generations down, but it is not fair, and it is not right. It is no more fair to kill women for being white than it was to castrate him because of a lie, or for any other reason. I do agree that it was a very un-Criminal-Minds-type episode, but I found it fascinating. I remember those days, and I hope that the country leaves them behind soon. We haven't yet, and it seems there is always another minority group to oppress, but perhaps we are learning. I think the actor playing the killer was absolutely brilliant.
