NCIS Season 12 Report Card: Grade It!

It was alright season gotta agree about your comment on 'choke hold' and about Pendergast. Yeah I agree about your assesment on Tony but there are a few pissy viewes who only see him at his best when he's with you know who or that he's become a tertiary character next to Gibbs, McGee and Bishop. Side note nice jab about vote Z I'm pretty sure the people who answered that one are the same people who swore they would never watch again last year yet stuck it out even until know to complain about episodes they clearly know more about than they should.

There seems to be confusion about The Author in the comments. As it was explained, The Author is a title handed to different people. And it is their job to record the great stories of their time, through observation and research. What is confusing here is not the scope of his powers, but the logistics. How is it possible for him to write about stories happening simultaneously? How does he get so much intimate details about what's happening? Henry's storybook is so much more detailed than would have been possible for the author to obtain with his limited abilities. Honestly, it doesn't make sense for there to be a single author for all the realms. And it doesn't make sense for him to be out and about doing first-hand research. It would make more sense if he had some sort of crystal ball or mirror with which he observed people. The legend of the author is a lot like Santa Clause. Who knows how he gets toys to millions of children around the world in a single night. Makes no effing sense as we are clearly shown snippets of his work of how he lands his sleigh, jiggles down the chimney, dawdles eating cookies, and carefully places the gifts, taking at least 10 minutes. At that rate, maybe he can finish two towns in one night. For the whole world, he's have to move at the speed of light. But who cares? Somehow he just does it. Same with the author. My other issue is why on earth the ink and pen would be given the power of manipulation if the author isn't supposed to do that? It's like giving a child a cookie and telling him not to eat it. However, I have my own theory for that. To ensure things are recorded accurately, and not have history be filled with lies, the ink and pen are enchanted to only accept writing that is true. However, this magic backfired, and instead of rejecting false information, it makes them true. You guys like my theory?

Oh I see. Well, everyone has a viewpoint on this show, regardless of whether you or I like it. I'm with you on this - I definitely want to move on, given that Cote de Pablo has made her decision a long time ago. Others haven't though - as you can see from the poll results. They have a voice too and should be heard.

The only comment I'll make about the poll is that it appears to allow you to grade more than once so I don't think I'll read anything into the results

Chicago PD Round Table: Is There Hope For Lindsay?

Great thought, Michael, you reminded me of the episode on SVU where Amanda gets pulled into that gambling house and is asked to do a whole bunch of things to pay off her gambling debt. She would be perfect to help Erin recover. I also really like Kelly Giddish, loved her in Texas Rangers I think is what the show was called, too bad it was canceled after one season. You are that there are a lot of stories to tell including how Voight got himself the reputation he has and how he is changing it. I hope Voight does credit Halstead with some of it, I know it's a small part. I am hoping Halstead is willing to sure his PTSD struggles with Erin to pull her out. I know how I would write his recovery for the most part...September is so so so far away. I only I've three shows I'm following now and they are not nearly as exciting as PD.

well considering that Coted WANTED and CHOSE to leave the only way that would happen is if you kidnapped her and force her back against her will. But go ahead with it I'm sure she's be pleased to know some random stranger has the right to dictate her life.

@ Limonite

Actually the viewership continued to increase and peaked in Jan of season 10. The demo started to decline but then my opinion of the demo is that it is a joke. All it represents is that lack of ability for the younger folks to stick with anything. Advertisers are starting to rediscover that the 50 to 65 range are the sweet spot now, they have all the money, that was mentioned in a CNBC article perhaps a month back. And they have an attention span that lasts at least one hr. I won't comment on ZIva, as I said she's gone and won't be back as a regular so what ever her force was in the ratings scheme it no longer matters.

Sorry Angela, but I agree with Limonite. This place would be boring if we all agreed. I like to think of this place as a coffee shop, where friends gather to dissect the movie or TV show we've just watched. I've done this in real life after watching a movie with a bunch of friends. It's so much fun!

@ Douglas Wolfe

What proof do you have that their opinions have anything to do why they're not here? Anyway "Michael" is here - and judging by his writing style he's "Mike". I don't even know who Matt is. Again, prove your assertion. For the record, I wouldn't "ban" anyone because of contrary opinions, even if I could. In fact I encourage alternate opinions - it's what keep this place alive. Please stop assuming that your opinion has more revelance because of whatever paranoid fictions you imagine. Own your opinion - stop trying to bolster it through imagined censure. You've become boring.

I will continue to give my opinion and the show is horrible, horrible and horrible since bishop, the ratings are going down, and there is no chemistry at all and no action. The show needs Ziva back and if you do not like my comment then do not read it.

@ Linda Marie Annarino

Then you should accept that the show was horrible horrible with Ziva on it and the rating were so bad their was talk of the show being canceled

How will I know if I like your comment or not if I'm not allowed to read it? By the way, I read your comment and I disagree with it. I would also like to add that the only person who can bring ziva back is Cote de Pablo.

@ Linda Marie Annarino

I've always maintained (because it's true!) that CBS goes after the 25-54 demo and are perfectly happy with NCIS' numbers in both key demos. Most watched also matters to CBS for a few reasons - world wide syndication, leverage with cable companies, and subscription services (which is growing fast and where they don't care what your age is as long as you're paying for it).
As for NCIS in season 10, it's important to note that The Voice took a longer hiatus in those days so with NBC airing the old skewing and little watched Off Their Rockers and ABC airing reruns and cooking shows Jan thru mid-March, NCIS peaked. Once The Voice returned, NCIS shed 3 million viewers.
I agree that whatever Ziva's force in the ratings scheme was doesn't matter now, so I was being somewhat sarcastic in response to those who say NCIS' ratings have fallen because of her absence (which, apparently, has been felt by all but a handful of TV shows across 5 major networks, since ratings are down for most shows) She's that powerful.

@ Linda Marie Annarino

The ratings have been going down since Season 8. I think I'll blame Ziva for those ratings drops since you seem to think she is the only person who matters on NCIS. Take the credit, take the blame, I say.

Tony, most evolved? Please devolve him back to where he was. I don't like this neurotic, boring old dude who holds the clicker. They've ruined him. I want smart, tough, irreverent, funny Tony back.

Avatar
@ Dido Twite

Well if by evolution you mean that he waxes on about casserole baking, colon cleanses, sends a team mate out alone because he got a voodoo doll, and comically falls in the dumpster while Shiny Tim gets the bad guy then you and I have a different idea of character evolution. Yes - they gave him a girlfriend. That's it? Tony used to be sharp and allowed to shine as a clever, brave agent, cast in dangerous suspense filled situations. He has been banned from those due to Gibbs being the only agent who can display heroism, bravery, cleverness, in the field. I want "old" Tony back too. Lets let Gibbs get the colon cleanse type scenarios for a while and Tony be the agent in the center of something exciting and non humiliating.

@ Dido Twite

He may not have evolved the way you wanted him to, but he did evolve. Remember when he was the class clown and frat boy? Do you not think he's moved on from that?

@ Douglas Wolfe

I'm glad he moved on from his most annoying traits, but think it's a shame he also seems to have moved on from his best.

Avatar
@ Dido Twite

They've pretty much attempted to turn Tony into a non entity. I can't imagine why. Sorry, but Michael Weatherly's Tony is a unique character who has a great deal to do with one main things that makes this show special. I can't believe that they didn't write one single exciting scene or hero moment for him. He was not in any danger the entire season, while GIbbs and McGee saw plenty of action and drama. It sucks to be a Tony fans these days.

@ Douglas Wolfe

I'm glad that he moved on from annoying, boundary crossing Tony but now he is standing around with not much to do while Gibbs and McGee solve the crime. I'm not a huge Tony fan but I liked it more when this show was an ensemble. Everyone got their time in the spotlight. I know that Mark Harmon is the star but there should be enough room in the sandbox for everyone to play. I know that it costs more in salaries if the sandbox is full of characters but it is more interesting.

Elementary Season 3 Episode 24 Review: A Controlled Descent

It seems to me that the whole scheme to grab Alfredo and drag Holmes
down is too much for a junkie like Oscar to come up with, or even pull
off. It looks much more like a Moriarty-esque plan to take Holmes down.
I suspect that Holmes figured that out, and his apparent relapse is a
fake, designed to uncover the balance of the overall plan. We never see
Sherlock use, he is not shooting up when we see him, we do not see any
paraphernalia laying around on the roof, and the last we heard of
Moriarty, she hints of a an unfolding game between herself and Holmes. etc. I just think there is more to it than a simple relapse caused by a druggie's scheme.
