I agree 100% that Jimmy Palmer from NCIS is under used and under valued. The actor does have the talent to really pull off a more serious role.I would add Tony DiNozzo to the list also. While I enjoy watching him mentor Bishop, there has to be more. It would be nice to see him step up and take more of a leadership role. His character was written for ziva for so long, it seems the writers have no clue what to do with him anymore. That is really sad. He's a very popular character, second lead and one of the original four characters. We are almost half way through the second season without ziva. I think it's time the writers figure out who he is.
That's not a picture of BJ Britt, that's J. August Richards. Right show, wrong character
All I could think of from how boring it was that it was the same Shit we been getting
This season was horrible. Also agree with the recapper, there is NO way Annie should be in the field. I can't believe all these smart people feel like she should be. I don't know what they were thinking when they wrote her having a heart condition and how that would work in the context of the show. Also, I don't dislike McQuaid (I mean there is nothing to dislike really) but he and Annie don't have any chemistry whatsoever. There have been so many guys she had chemistry with and they casted the one guy she doesn't have any chemistry with. So obviously "no" to marrying him. Their whole relationship dynamic is basically him caving into her. Also for a guy that has been around all season, I don't feel like I know him at all. As for Auggie, I never got the sense that he was that into Natasha-that came out of nowhere. I barely remember Natasha and was never invested in their romance sooo ehhh. The whole Calder and the Sydney deal...to me Calder is another person that just isn't interesting to me. Actually Sidney is more interesting than he is. If they were going to give Belenko this much screen time they needed to develop him more and make him more interesting. Arthur running for senate or whatever-snoregasm Stuff I miss: Weekly missions that weren't tied into one huge case like this seasonAnnie actually having to answer to someone...The dynamic between Annie and her sisterAnnie's friendship with AuggieJoan running her own division

Dar Adal clearly wants to be the "power behind the throne" at the CIA and Saul is a fool to trust him (and Haqqani) - of course, the U.S. has a history of getting into bed with terrorists and other "bad guys" if it serves our interests (the entire Saudi regime, which treats its people worse than Saddam ever did; Qaddafi/Libya, where we conveniently decided to forget about Lockerbie and other transgressions and bond with the enemy of our enemy; etc.), so this is actually a realistic turn. It will be interesting to see where the show goes next season.
That funny moment where the reviewer complains about too little Joshua jackson but then complain about too MUCH Joshua jackson in season 5 of Fringe. Anyways, I have no way to watch this show but I am glad Josh is FINALLY getting kudos for his work. See Fringe writers and fan base, Josh CAN bring it without having to play 50 versions of himself.
Cho had the best lines. I love his character. I loved psychic Lisbon. I don't really want them to leave the FBI. It was an awesome episode.
The 4th ep of The Librarians was a wild ride from beginning to end. The writers and actors showed how versatile they are. Can you imagine Christin Kane witha Cockney accent! Memorable lines like "oh shiny balls" will stay in my head. There was something for everyone- laughter, chases, fights, and even some hopeful sentiment at the end. I'll watch this one over and over.
I thought Jane's question about leaving the FBI was really designed to gauge Lisbon's reaction to a long term future with him. She didn't say "we've just become a couple - it's too soon to talk about things like that". She just focused on leaving the FBI. And The way Jane said "I know" it was even more obvious that leaving the FBI wasn't the point of the question.
For me, his season finale was still very dramatic but in a quiet way. In the end, we find Carrie more alone than she ever was - she lost her father, her friend/possible lover is somewhere on the hostile territory and the worst of all - her mentor betrayed her and everyone from US embassy. The look on Carrie's face when she saw Saul in Dar Adal's house was heartbreaking. Still, I got to wonder if there was some truth in what Dar Adal said to Saul - that not everyone can be blessed to act with moral clarity. Throughout the series, we've seen each and every one of these characters making questionable choices. So was Saul's choice justified or a part of a bigger plan or did he just want back in CIA so badly that he grasped the opportunity, regardless of consequences? I guess we'll have to wait and see.As for season 5, I hope we will continue with Haqqani storyline in some capacity - even just because I still want to see the end of Tasneem! Quinn must come back as well- this show needs Quinn as much as Carrie needs him, he's her voice of reason and her pillar of strength. I guess season 5 will be like Quinn's open ended mission- anything can happen - but that's one of the things I love about Homeland.
