The NCIS Round Table struggled with some questions that came up from this episode. Maybe you can chime in with your thoughts too. The mystery surrounding Gibbs (and now Tony) just won't go away. http://www.tvfanatic.com/2015/...
Even better. I thought maybe Joe had posted it then deleted it because he wasn't supposed to announce it yet. ; )
Thanks! I looked through Joe's Twitter feed and didn't see it, but I'll take your word for it. There's a reason they showed AJ in this episode - and i know it was to assure viewers she's only gone temporarily.
Thank you very much, @crazy4NCIS. I appreciate your saying so!
Yeah. "You mean do I want to be you?" just didn't resonate. At all. Tony can be an excellent leader without being Gibbs. I like Gibbs but Tony is his own guy. He will be a leader with his own style that has nothing in common with Gibbs. And anyway, mimicking someone else - no matter how great that person happens to be - is not what it means to be a leader. That's what it means to be a sycophant. A follower. Sheep.
The way they handled Leonard and Penny was far more realistic than what I was expecting….and therefore believable. I truly expected them to split up, and then later on come together again in a big elaborate wedding episode. So glad I was wrong on that. I'm also glad Amy hasn't caved yet. That too would be unrealistic. And although Sheldon is as annoying as ever - I don't think he's wrong about Amy's abiding interest in him. The fact that she stood outside the door to listen is, as he surmised, proof of her investment.
Our first NCIS Round Table is up. Come over and join in the discussion! http://www.tvfanatic.com/2015/...
I had to do some digging on this one. Palmer is not identified as a medical doctor (Ducky keeps calling him MISTER Palmer), yet at the end of Season 9 when Ducky was down for the count, he was made Acting Chief Examiner. The suggestion is that he has completed his medical degree and is fully qualified. Plot hole perhaps? And why after 7 years on the show is he not a full MD? I've got questions, man.

That's a great review - which is what I always tend to say when the person writing it agrees with my POV. : ) Seriously though: having watched the original film more times than I can count, I had high hopes for this series. So far, it's not letting me down. I had to wonder at Eddie's contention that Finch could take as many NZT pills as he needed to and would never suffer ill effects (because of the booster shot), and more specifically, that Eddie did this all the time. In the film, I believe he told Carl Van Loon (Robert DeNiro's character) that he no longer took NZT at all. So either they've changed the narrative or Eddie's lying. The latter sort of makes sense, since Senator Morra would want to keep such a thing secret perhaps. Not sure I can get used to Jennifer Carpenter not dropping the F-bomb all over the place. She's not Debra in this series however and it *is* network TV so I guess we'll have to make our peace with that.
The only good part of that scene was Penny's facial reaction, which was perfect.
