NCIS Round Table: Can McGee Really Be a Team Leader?

I really like it when Borin is part of the episode. She's such a good fit with this group. As for McGee, I've always liked his character. He's grown a lot in the last year and perhaps this episode was a beginning for him to be more of a leader. Making up a rule, priceless!!!!!!!!!!

Grimm Season 4 Episode 1 Review: Thanks for the Memories

Waiting for Nick to get Grimmed up before I start watching. This losing his powers is predictable, as Adalind is becoming.

I think I was too tired to really enjoy the episode, so it felt very slow to me. The ice cream truck music started out amusing but went on forever... I was very interested in what was going on with Murphy. I really did not like citizen Z at all this episode. I felt he would have had no way to know Charlie's character so his eulogy seemed like the show writers were using him to apologize to the audience. And the emergency broadcast really bugged me. Just say "hey there are a gazillion zombies in Kansas. Leave now." I will rewatch when I'm not so tired. 😊

I loved this episode, but especially Roberta. She didn't speak until the very end there and you just knew she wasn't ready until that moment to become fully the leader the group will need with the herd coming (my biggest question is that there had been news that herds were gathering in the west, how did the group miss them and get ahead of them?). I sort of feel like the girl that 10K likes and her father might actually become members of their caravan. Like, that the writers and producers got the word that SyFy was seriously considering renewing it and so they wrote in some options for the now certain second season. Like in case the girl who plays Cassandra doesn't feel like doing another season unless she gets more story or they decide to kill Mack off to make the group sort of be women led. Plus, practically, everyone in the gun show will probably be heading in the same direction. I just hope that Mack and Addy aren't separated from the group for long, or maybe they hook up with the girl and her father and learn they both know 10K so decide to work together to hook up with the group. I liked how they basically undercut the whole real threat of the gun show that would have normally shown up in TWD. Like, but for Forman - who would have been fine if Murphy hadn't bugged him - it was everything it appeared to be. Just a respite in the storm. I am pretty certain Forman didn't turn because the mission actually has a point - Murphy does possess the cure, or at least the vaccine. I'm guessing he can prevent those who are now living from turning when they die, but the Zs that already exist have no chance of rebounding. Which actually makes sense. They died first and you can't cure death. It would actually be logic that makes sense to me that sort of bugs me in other supernatural shows (i.e., given the dusty warehouse they were in and the stress, when the eclipse happened, Scott should probably have experienced an asthma attack given he had trouble breathing following Stiles in the woods on Teen Wolf; Dean, while cured, he was stabbed through the chest...at the very least the Vampire Diaries dealt with if the vampire or other supernatural part of them disappeared, they'd experience how they'd died).

My prediction in the darkest scenario is that Abel kills Gemma (with hammer or gun) thereby killing Jax's dreams. Maybe Wendy and Tommy ride off into the sunset.

Good points by all the reviewers, and I agree with Doug's comments about both Bishop and McGee. Yes, Tony has channeled Gibbs in the past as well, but he also has his own distinct style of leading, as we've seen in many eps. And more importantly, he's shown how his quick thinking and outside-the-box solutions can often save the day (Truth or Consequences, The Admiral's Daughter, etc). This is something he was trying to explain to Bishop after the training exercise, and something that his original Probie, McGee, has seen and apparently not learned by over the years. I don't man to be hard on Tim, but by this time he should have a stronger, more individual, style when leading. He's certainly contributed and saved the day with his own skill sets many times, but if he wants to someday lead his own team, he should be farther along by now. In real life, Gibbs would have stepped back and let Tony and Tim take the lead at times, but in the show's universe, no one but Gibbs seemed allowed to be the hero anymore.
That said, I enjoyed all the character stuff in the ep, and loved how Tony held his own with Borin, and think the two have a nice chemistry.

Okay - are we so young we don't know what FUBAR means - military for "F @@ked Up Beyond All Recognition". Which basically described the episode perfectly and as I said last week Murphy's bite may actually cure Z's they certainly don't make them. They guy died but not from the z disease. Missed the "Wonder Twins" this week but 10K's puppy love was very endearing.

Both have worked depending circumstances. Then there is FUBAB.

I agree with most of the points made here. Keep Brody and LaSalle as buddies, they have great "friend" chemistry but I don't need another showmance. Also, I hope they bring more of New Orleans into the story; its' such a unique setting, the city deserves to be a character in the show. The lab assistant is the weak link; I think they should replace him. Otherwise, I'm really liking the cast.

Hawaii Five-0 Season 5 Episode 5 Review: Legacy

I'm never a fan of Danny-less episodes! Especially after the end of last week's ep - I feel like we've been left hanging. As far as Ellie goes, I'm not sure what to think. I've heard PL say that she will just be a 'friend' to Steve but it definitely seems like they're setting her up to be a potential love interest. Maybe they're going to gauge viewers' reactions and then decide where to take it. Personally, I wish they'd just focus on the team for awhile. Steve has had a love interesting, in one way or another, since Season 1 - can't he just be on his own for awhile? It seems out of character for him to move on from Catherine any time soon. Plus, we still have so many other story lines hanging out here, with Jerry, Danny, Wo Fat, etc... we don't need any new characters and story arcs.
