lol, i would love to see how females would feel about raf+jane if the actors who played michael and rafael were switched around. something tells me they would be a lot more cheering for michael and jane if that were the case
I'm not a fan of flashback shows but this one kept the flashbacks to a minimum. They were just long enough to give the view the impression that that was what Tim was seeing in his mind when he was writing about each rule. Heidi's abrupt turnaround? It's a Christmas miracle!
Ahhhh....I can't wait! It's been a long 12 months! What a great show!
I'm convinced the Noah situation is the out for Mariska. Carisi (sp?) is my new fave. I always love Ice-T, and I don't miss the Amaro character. I doubt this show will continue on, but with a perm addition of P. Gallagher, it could become a new show. I still enjoy the format, and most of the characters.
What a terrible review. Does this guy even like the show at all? The flashbacks and the rules were consistent with the ongoing stories about who Gibbs and the crew are. This was one of the better episodes this year.
So your mom and dad didn't have rules for you what about the bible and its rules?
Hey you're free to disagree and to think my review stinks - that's what the comment section is all about. In fact I'm grateful when readers state what they think. But I find it weird that on some positive NCIS reviews I've been accused of being paid by CBS to shill for this show, and under reviews like this the accusation is that I don't like the show. I disagree with your comment CaliMark - does that mean you work for CBS? : )
Who cares what people say? Just stick to your guns. All we have are rules in our lives. Gibbs was a reckless teenager with a lot misdirected energy when he met Shannon who gave him the idea about setting rules. Those rules have guided him through all the tough times and have helped set the course for those he leads at NCIS. McGee, like Tony, has a father figure at work in Gibbs and McGee's letter paralleling what he learned from his father with Gibbs list was an inspired choice for this episode.
I think your top statement in the second paragraph crystallizes our disagreement: "all we have are rules in our lives". No doubt that's how McGee operates and it's certainly how Gibbs does too (and how McGee's dad did as well). Ultimately that's an individual thing….and to those for whom that maxim resonates, the character of McGee is relatable and no doubt welcome. For others who prefer a more laid back approach to life, where rules don't matter quite so much, McGee comes off as stifling and uptight. To be sure, Sean Murray plays the part well - I have no issues with the characterization or how well it's written. But the character just doesn't sit well with me. Your statement "all we have are rules…" makes me want to pull out my hair in horror.
Sure they did. But when I became an adult, that all changed. Things are a lot less black and white now.
Everybody has a rule whether it's right or wrong. A criminal has a rule that it's ok to commit a crime. We are taught right and wrong from our parents, our teachers, the Bible, etc. How you apply those determines who you are. Not being a "rule follower" is also a guide or rule on how you want to live your life. I wouldn't take it so personally. I thought it was a great episode and I like Gibbs rules. Many people could use more discipline or good rules to live by in this world.
I really hope the writers won't be thinking of killing off another major character. I've about had it went they took out Carter. I think the cast is great now, I won't be able to handle another death like Carters.
Why do we have to wait that long? I hope abuelita is ok. I can't wait to see it! http://tiny.cc/8kw0qx
oh wow thats exciting news for Nicholas Gonzales, he was definitely under used in Sleepy Hollow. Can't wait for some back story on Cisco as well.
I liked the original Because it definitely isn't Carver!Claire unfortunately Carver's tenure of show running is lacking. They trust Carver not 1 but 3 years to decide what scripts are written from what story ideas and which of those are filmed ad eps?! Seriously?! Carver couldn't find his own ass with his own hands at high noon with, a flashlight and a tour guide. He needs to be tossed and replaced with someone who knows what he/she what the hell they're doing!
51 rules aren't too many although I could of done without Ziva. There was a reason her and Tony's so called romance never got beyond hinting. Ziva acted more like a stalker then a potential lover. Not to mention she was boorish, rude and an insult to women everywhere. Kate was uptight but likeable, Bishop is quirky but likeable. Ziva made me mute the program whenever she spoke to ease the urge to smack her for acting the know it all when all she was doing was repeating exactly what the other characters just said not to mention how she had no faith in her team but expected them to have nothing but faith in her but only if it benefited Ziva and nobody else. As the show got slowly taken over by Ziva and everyone else became wallpaper whose only purpose was to gush how wonderful Ziva was I started watching less until I wasn't watching anymore. With Ziva gone I happily started watching NCIS now that it's not the Ziva and her kiss ups show
Ziva was a stalker? I thought the usual complaint was that she was cold and abusive to Tony. Tony was far more of a stalker.
No Ziva was cold and abusive and a stalker. She saw Tony flirting with the FBI and snidely told her she had something in her teeth. Once she and Tony were gone she went through the woman's purse and snidely proclaimed she was hiding something because there was no hair in her brush for dna testing. No Ziva only skanks toss brushes full o hair back in their bags for hair to get all over everything. How many times did Ziva go through Tony's deak? Multiple times. Ducky invited her for drinks as he would a colleague and all Ziva could do was talk about why Tony wasn't answering her 20th call. She did the same with Gibbs when he quipped he didn't know they were wed Ziva said he'd been to see the doctor but wouldn't say why.
But Tony searching for her for 4 months in the middle east doesn't sound a little stalky to you?
Because if he wanted to tell you he would so obviously like when he entered the men's room Ziva you were too dense to get the point. Her assurance Tony killed Michael out of jealousy and he didn't have to kill him. 1 he was suspicious not jealous and 2 you weren't there you don't know what he needed to do. When a guy has a hunk of glass in his side and he's pumping out blood but he is still coming what would you do?
