Winter, It's good to hear from you. As you can see, the board has become somewhat inactive as we wait for the start of the second season. I have also not seen any clear cut announcement of when the season will start. Maybe Carissa will find out when she interviews Stephanie Szostak. I'll be looking forward to hearing about the few tidbits and look forward to talking to everyone soon.

He might find it difficult for people to separate him from a character he's played for so long. I find it surprising he's considering returning to television so soon; wasn't part of the reason for his departure because he wanted to spend more time with his family or something?

I am totally shipping Vex and "Teen-wolf" we need a little more testosterone on the show.

Disappointed because it wasn't what I was expecting. Brennan dealing with Booth in this manner is ok, but yes it would have been nice to see her actually missing Booth a bit more but that is part of what was wrong with this episode. I understand an agree with decision to kick him out but whether Emily Deschanel was not available for some of episode or Reichs just cannot grasp Brennan on screen I do not know but her part of this story did not work . I hope with Angela and Hodgins threatening to leave next week and Booth's progress will turn her back to him a bit. On the other hand Booth's story was well done and hooked in with the case well because he was not only reminded of himself but of his father as well and he finally saw what he is about to lose. His smile at Brennan at the end was nice and I hope we get to see him tell more of his story next week. As for Aubry and Jessica? NO NO!!! They were was what was wrong with the rest of this episode. I have grown to like both of them but not together. I love Bones but they feel an incessant need to pair everyone on their show up with someone, and these two are not necessary I really don't mind them dealing with this issue between them but I expected to see more of them tonight not just tiny diner scene and FBI scene. hope next two episodes are better

I liked first two episodes but my only problem is that police tactics in the 60's apparently aren't any different in the current day. Miranda is easily ignored see Blue Bloods. Beating suspects is still common place so I see no difference in police tactics. The main difference is how women were treated so this like Mad Men will be one of the main points. And of course the "you are a living lie and will burn your word to the ground" is a major harbinger. I went to school in Baltimore when they nearly burned the city down after MLK's assassination. And this was before the riots at the DMC in 68. It was a real fun time.

D-
Hate Tony's love interest - she's either bland or pushy. Not "interesting" at all. But at least after some stumbles, Tony's actually becoming the guy we only glimpsed before. And we got to see him smile.
You killed Ned? And our favorite Gibbs-ex? Sheesh. Bad moves.
And there was not nearly enough Borin.
Yes, Abby needs to evolve. At 40+, she now appears to have some sort of mental issue that keeps her an eternal teenager. Everybody grows & changes. Everybody. Keep the enthusiasm, but make it more age-appropriate. Clothes and hair, too. She's waaaay past thirteen.
Grow Jimmy too. Yeah, his schtick is old. Lost the humor long ago. Keep him sweet, but let him learn from his mistakes. Make him a suitable heir to Ducky's legacy.
Ducky - I thought I'd hate his retro episode, but instead - loved it! Would love to see retro-Ducky again. Maybe not a whole episode, but flashbacks would be good.
Bishop is dull. I don't blame the actress. It's the writers' fault. Apparently they've forgotten that cute & quirky & brainy is an old female stereotype. Had she been introduced more slowly, had her personality been developed slowly and allowed to be discovered, she might be less objectionable. And I find her hubby to be creepy. Very creepy. Like Ziva's Ray creepy.
Maybe bring back the old writers, 'cause obviously you ditched some and the remainders/replacements have never thought of an original plot or joke. And of course, bringing back Ziva would be amazing, but not without good writers to keep her 3-Dimensional. And make the rest of the crew 3-D again too.

Solid A. The team is so much more cohesive and bonded without the diva. Ellie has grown so much and I'm happy to see McGee getting to be a BAMF again since the diva always took that over. I'm also excited to see the bond between Gibbs and Tony growing again, it also took back burner to the diva. She overtook the show and now that she's gone, we get to see the team and show we all loved again.

I gave it a B. The start of the season was a definite A+ and then it lost some steam part way through. The arc leading into the finale was good up until the actual finale. I think Gary Glasberg, producer should fire Gary Glasberg, writer. It had such possibilities, but was a disaster from the writing to the directing to the editing. In order to set up the big finish, they managed to make most of the agents look incompetent on the way. In fact it was my least favourite episode, made more so by the presence of the ghost of Mike Franks. Bring in the Ghost Whisperer already and let him cross over. Please? I also didn't enjoy your favourite, Cabin Fever. I love Fornell (and Joe Spano broke my heart), but I prefer justice to revenge and, in my opinion, they set up Sergei to be murdered. I'm growing tired of the ongoing vengeance themes - if not Ziva, then Gibbs, Vance & Fornell. My favourite episode was Grounded; it had smart, savvy Tony and Bishop and was a great team episode. Tony even got to shoot someone. Wow! Parental Guidance Suggested was terrific too with its very creepy killers. And So It Goes and Cadence were also right up there. One of my favourite things about Cadence was the respect and admiration that Ellie Bishop showed toward Tony. She really is the only one in years who has truly treated him as Senior Field Agent. That's my pet peeve for this season; the apparent promotion of McGee to SFA. I'm glad Tony is not the "idiot child in the corner" any more, but I would love to see him treated a bit more like Gibbs' second in command. I thought the growth of Bishop was well done throughout the year. She's learned more and more about being part of a team. So the season wasn't without its problems, but overall was pretty good. I hope that the start of Season 13 has Gibbs taking a step back and letting his team do more of the heavy lifting. And I really hope he stops seeing a particular ghost.
