NCIS Season 12 Report Card: Grade It!

Bishop is growing on me. Just don't see them killing off Gibbs, out of action for wounds maybe, not dead. Sorry, as much as I like Tony's father, his episodes don't do it for me. Tony was in a relationship with Jeanne Benoit. I always thought they would bring her back into his life somehow. If Ziva wants to come back, even for a visit, this will be the time with Gibbs being wounded. If not, I miss her, but she has her own life. Side note, anyone remember the last time Gibbs had to head slap Tony? Grade B+

I noticed you did not include the infamous cliffhanger episode of Gibbs' life in the balance. For the season I would say B+ because I see an evolution (pleasantly so) in the main characters except Gibbs, who has been reduced to one word commands, similar to "sit, heel, stay," etc. Then the shooting sequence where we maybe, sorta, kinda, maybe not, lose Gibbs altogether off the series. First no Ziva and now no Gibbs? Killing Gibbs equals killing the show. Bishop is getting better if the writers will give her better material. Finally, ratings and demos have taken a dive when Ziva left. Now the writers want us to believe they would willingly kill their means of making a living after CBS renewed the show? Wake up and smell the coffee! I was entertained until the cliffhanger. Then I was angry at the writers for a "Who shot JR" moment to ride through the summer. And NO, with great respect, Mr Harmon, everyone is NOT REPLACEABLE! And that most especially means YOU!

maybe, but what if it's not.... Bogus is a little strong, in our troubled times I'd say it was a little mean Doug, not bogus. WE are losing so much as a society, losing one of our fictional heroes would be another agony.

That last episode was bogus, which is why I didn't include it. I don't for a second believe that Gibbs is dead, merely injured.

I love the Last Ship, but I'm really looking forward to the return of Defiance. I like Dominion too, but Defiance is my favorite summer show.

I gave it an F. The Zoe and Tony relationship is not Mature when Zoe discusses in the Bull Pen, a federal office of investigation, that she and Tony used handcuffs during sex. Bishop does nothing but Gossip and Abby still has not grown up....Gibbs, Gibbs Gibbs..come on already!

When did they have sex in the bullpen?
Apparently I missed an exciting episode and I thought I saw all 24 of them.
Just out of curiosity, were you ok with ziva and Ray making out in the break room or did you call the FCC on that one too?

Oh my God, Douglas I can't believe you catered to the Ziva crazies with that option Z!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, I'm not good with episode titles but I liked this season and gave it an A and I am looking forward to next season. Couple of stand out episodes was the Christmas one where Tim was writing the letter to his father. Another was the one you mentioned---Gibbs and Tobias at Gibbs cabin after Diane's death. A lot are STILL complaining that Tim was put to the forefront over Tony. I don't believe that at all. This season was a season of change for Tony. There comes a time in a series--especially one that's been on for quite some time--where characters must develop to make things more interesting. I, for one couldn't be more pleased that they have moved Tony away from being the "class clown" ............ Douglas I hope you have a great summer and hope you are reviewing some summer shows! I enjoy reading your reviews! All the rest of you NCIS regulars here---have a great summer and see you this fall !!!!!!!!!

I wish him the best and I know he has to make a living having 3 kids. Sondra you will regret that you fired a popular lead character ,the heart and soul of greys. I will always identify him as derick and for me it's to soon but I hope he finds a show that he is appreciated and does well.

I will Always Love this show! I give them a solid A. I disagree with Chris about McGee but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Personally I think McGee is long overdue for his time in the 'so called spotlight'. He is a wonderful actor. Will always love Abby, she just didn't have much going on this season. Please change that! Would love to see an episode of Jimmy's family and add in Ducky as Uncle Ducky or something:) Do hope Gibbs is OK, can't imagine they would kill him off and shoot the show in the head but you never know. Gibbs IS NCIS!!

I did say Sean Murray is a very good actor. I just don't think the character McGee is strong enough to be second lead character. I enjoy the character much more as the plucky side-kick.

Totally agree chris. McGee is not strong enough as a character or dynamic enough as an actor to replace Tony. The sad lack of Tony doing much of anything made this a rather lack luster season despite the constant barrage of Gibbs or McGee drama. TPTB need to give Tony some real business and action this season or this will cease to be must watch tv for me.
