That kiss with Jamal and Skye was off the chart! Boy, would his father be in seventh heaven if he was able to love a wiman. Maybe he is really bisexual. The songs are fantastic. Jamal has a beautiful voice. Sounds reminiscent of Michael Jackson. Cookie and Lucious still are hot for each other....Let's not deny it. What's up with Anika? Has she lost it? Empire is a deliciously addictive show. I love it!
I can't believe the critics don't like this program. The message of family love and sticking together through it all, is wonderful, unlike the usual bickering on many shows. Would like to see Taye Diggs become a part of the show. He and Morris Chestnut have great bro chemistry. I'm also a great fan of Lorraine T. who plays the mother. Her role should be expanded. All in all, a very enjoyable show. Hope it gets a second season.
It looks like USA made all episodes for season 2 available for views on demand and is also broadcasting an episode a week. Does that make sense?
I suspected that something was off with Abby's cancer -- and that's why her body was completely destroyed, apart from the bones -- but it looks like she actually had what her husband claimed. I thought that the blood she was testing was her own, but the way it actually happened made more sense.
We didn't see Morland but we saw a cloud coming his and our couple's way . That detective clearly announced that she would investigate their reinstatement which is connected to a bribery case. As for the doctor prescribing chemio to healthy patient, it happened in real life with a recently convicted Dr Farid F. ( 45 years ).
I think a very important point is missed here. This isn't about Meredith just being loyal to Cristina who is her person, this isn't the reason Amelia is being overshadowed in the Owen story, but sometimes when things are critical you might not want to involve your romance with it especially when things are just starting off. This has nothing to do with whether owen and meredith were close or not in the last year or ever but they both know that they can communicate on that level that owen needs right now and perhaps meredith too. nobody will understand your dark and twisty days unless they have been through something similar and through cristina owen knows that part of meredith and the other way round. Also I highly disagree when couples come closer because of a massive issue in one's or the other's life and Amelia should have wanted to stay out of this, maybe be around to support owen but she should't want to crawl with owen through this.She doesn't see clearly and she allowed her jealousy to overtake her and how she spoke to Meredith was unacceptable.
This episode was kind of disappointing for me. I enjoyed seeing Lindsay Wagner but I didn't feel that they used her well. I wish they would have left Gibbs in DC and let Bishop's mother interact more with her, creating a great mother and daughter moment. At this point, I'm a little annoyed that Gibbs must be injected into the middle of everything. I know that this is the Gibbs show but I think that they missed an opportunity to let Bishop interact with her family without the ever present Gibbs. Let Emily Wickersham be front and center without Harmon upstaging her. We need to see who this character is and not eclipsed by Gibbs or propped up by Gibbs.
The show has become very predictable in having to make sure the Gibbs issues or heroism or being the one to solve someone else's dilemma seems to be inserted into every single episode. Sometimes it's a mystery as to why the rest of the team exists because Gibbs pretty much does everything worth doing. It was s much more interesting show when they used all the characters and different combinations of them for the big moments and dramas. Now it's always either Gibbs by himself, Gibbs and a team member, or Gibbs and a guest star. No team member it seems can have an entire episode that is really about them unless Gibbs gets his obligatory scenes from the writers that focuses on some featured attribute.
Guess you missed the other half, you know Tobey and Tony and McGee taking down the money launderers, Tony and Tim locating the brother, Oh Tony wacking the scumbag in the back of the head as the third method, Tony doing the reports soTim could do the soup kitchen with Abby, Tobey and Tony comisurating over their pathetic holiday plans, well not really pathetic. If the attribute of being a father is what you speak of well yes that is Gibbs to his team and that's the way it's always gonna be, you want shock and awe it won't be here. That's not the style of the show. Though they do occasionally surprise us. They are our comfort food in very troubled times.
Specifically that was murder 2.0. That was from the perp, oh and Zivas Friend Lizan in the missionary position. over all Gibbs doesn't get stroked any more than Tony strokes himself. A 24 yr NCIS career with 7 plus civilian awards, a bunch of service awards while in the Marines might get you notice on a CV. Meanwhile Tony gets the legend, in Baltimore every time. Is this a measuring contest really? By the way I think that the character would have given that all up for his wife and daughter, but we know how that would have ended don't we. No Gibbs.
You said exactly what I have been thinking all season, bravo!
It has become the all Gibbs all the time show. Absolutely no other character can be written in a way where it might be construed that they have much value when placed beside Gibbs. It's the same crap that messed up MASH when Alan Alda took artistic control and Hawkeye became the be all end all character as the other characters became back ground noise. Same thing seems to be happening here. If a story can't somehow shoehorn in scenes featuring some predominant aspect of Gibbs, the story simply won't be told. I miss the team but the cohesiveness of that dynamic is gone. Now it's always Gibbs and fill in the blank.
Half of the show didn't involve Gibbs or Bishop or tied their actions to what the rest of the team was doing back in DC. Tony sure isn't a father figure, now we see that MW might need a little growing up himself. Perhaps he should adopt the Gibbs persona. The overlying theme of the show is Gibbs father figure to his agents, I think their cohesiveness and dynamic was spot on, they all went on and did their jobs without the boss, even Bishop took it upon herself to try at Leavenworth before Gibbs even got there, at Tony's request. so what they didn't get together for dinner all of them we've seen it been there done it, cant always end the same. Really you must think that Tony has no value here, he acted as second in command, directed Bishop, saved Tobey from a violent confrontation, and it is Gibbs place to be the dad here, it's partly his fault that Ellie and Jake are on the rocks, he brought her in, and that started the wall to build between the spouses.

We don't know the mom and as Doug said not interested in the investment yet just like he wasn't interested in the Quinn's, a little harsh, but first time I wasn't that hot for Gibbs papa either. Yes I'd be worried as a mom about her she's had two dangerous jobs already, couldn't talk about the first, and won't talk about the second and her marriage woes, what else could a mom do. Gibbs is rescuing himself too, and bishop has to rescue herself. She will work this out because she'll recognize she has too just as Gibbs has finally seen it for himself. She figured out how to reach Doogan, not Gibbs. He didn't rescue bishop, she decided on her own to return, and how to approach the convict, Gibbs was just the sounding board she could talk to if she wished.
So, you are saying that only Gibbs can solve a problem on the show? Is it that he is the only one capable or is he the only one who is allowed? In my life I've found that at different times different people have the answer that I need. There is not just one person who has all of the answers. Could Bishop's mother have been written differently so that she had the key? The way Bishop's mother was written, Gibbs was needed to help her. Could her brother have been written as the one who could say what she needed to hear. What I'm getting at is that this show is scripted. There is a "creative process." Real life, I find, is often very unpredictable. Excellent writing mirrors life. It is very predictable that Gibbs will solve the problem. I would like them to surprise me.sometimes. Throw me a curve for a change. Letting someone else help her.would have been nice. Having Lindsay Wagner on the show was an opportunity that got dropped in my opinion What they are doing with John Cryer, on the other hand, is pretty good, Allowing Michael Weatherly to be the hero in the recent episode is ls also a step in the right direction..

But Ellie wasn't interacting, she was blocking, it was Gibbs advice to her on the porch, the revelation that he was talking to someone. We had plenty of interaction between her brother and her and her mom, but Bish wasn't having it with feelings and conversation, there are those who would say it's impossible to make Bishop interesting, I disagree but Gibbs needed to be there, to get her to talk, and to reassure her mom that she would be watched over, not protected but, knowing your daughters boss on a more personal level, it a reassurance. Gibbs has that way about him. She was doing pretty good on her own, but you can't go it alone all the time. Let's face it, he went there for two reasons, Leavenworth, and the worry that she might not want to come back, and the help her to see beyond the hurt and betrayal, to what she wants to be and do.
You've seen NCIS before, right? Gibbs is always the hero...99.9999% of the time.
They are all heroes on the show, Gibbs was the father figure in the episode because Ellie's dad hadn't gotten home yet, Gibbs interactions with Lindsey and with Ellie were simply that, fatherly. What we got out of mom was her secret fears , about her daughter, and concerns about her marriage, and the realization that Ellie doesn't open up much, and never has, and is a serious planner. Seriously in real life would you expect your boss to pop up at your door 1000 miles away, to help you with a case, and with something personal esp when you know he's a functional mute and doesn't open up to anyone? That was the point of it. Tony and Tim did their jobs in DC with Tobias, and Gibbs did his job with his young agent, he got her to think it through so she could first do her job, and then move on from the betrayal. That would be his duty, don't you think, not Tony not McGee not ,Abby, or Ducky, it was Gibbs who brought her into the unit, from NSA, that separation hindered her relationship with Jake, though I think jake s an idiot, and I'm sure he told Jake that in no uncertain terms, but in the end, his fledgling his responsibility.
Gibbs has always been the father to his team, that is how Bellisario wrote NCIS. He has had poignant moments with Ziva, Abby, Tim and Tony. I like those poignant moments. My problem is that they had Lindsay Wagner on the show and she came off as the stereotypical worried mom. Why not do something different. Let Bishop and her mom do something different. Let her mother be strong and maybe talk about a rough patch that she and Bishop's dad went through and how she thought about leaving him. I was hoping for that but it didn't happen. We got the same predictable Gibbs to the rescue..
Maybe they should stop calling the show NCIS and call it "LeRoy Jethro Gibbs, Extremely Special and Gifted Special Agent." Have you noticed how oftentimes someone introduces him to someone new, they say "and this is the famous LeRoy Jethro Gibbs." You can almost hear the trumpets blow. Why do they have to keep telling us that he's famous. Why isn't it enough that people say, "I've heard about you Gibbs," when they meet him? Understatement is better.

Even though noone asked me, IM thankful for the writers, the cast and ALL the great fans for ONCE UPON A TIME. THANKS FOR 4 1/2 AMAZING YEARS!!!!!!!!
If they don't show it onscreen, it didn't happen ( unless it's Soprano's)..... Simone lives!! Bear's reaction when he got to his truck was more frustration at his own " weakness" for not being able to kill his betraying niece, than being upset that he had to kill her. Dodd is his enemy now, and he feels like he should have killed Dodd's kid, in retaliation for what happened with Charlie, as well as for Simone's actions. I've thought from the very beginning how cool it would be if Ed ( aka Todd from Breaking Bad), actually ended up a boss man in the mob. The Butcher Breaks Bad!! Peggy rambling on about being her best self, and Ed, the simple minded butcher takes over! I'm wondering if Hanzee has left the Gerhardt Reservation, and is trying to trick Bear, or, is Hanzee hot in the trail of Ed as he drives Dodd's car with Dodd in the trunk. Wtf is Floyd up to? Her sly smile after she informed on Kansas City seemed to indicate she is up to something. Is Hank up to craziness to try and cure his daughter from cancer? Bear's comments to Hanzee about being welcome at the family table, and then telling Simone that no one is family now seem important.
