NCIS Round Table: Is Gibbs Dead??!

No Gibbs is not dead. I think if anything he will come back in a limited capacity because of his injury. If they pick up in the fall where this left off, I am worried about Tony more than anything. Luke may shoot at him too just as he comes to Gibbs aid.
If Joanna hadn't been Ned's mom, we probably wouldn't have had that awesome kitchen interrogation scene with her and Sadiq. Her being his mom added more emotion to it. That was the only reason why I was ok with her being his mom. Up until then I thought it would have been better if she wasn't. Yep, the morse code nonsense didn't work for me either. I mean come on, that is really pushing the envelope on that one. I agree that kids are being used for this because it is the most proficient way to further their agenda. Plus the government is less likely to have a shootout with a child than an adult. Kids can get away with more because most adults really don't want to hurt kids, even when they have a gun pointed at you.

NCIS Round Table: Is Gibbs Dead??!

HI first I want to thank you guys for a great season of opinion and review. Second no Gibbs can't die, as that would really rip the team apart, mentally from Tony losing another one to Abby losing her father surrogate. So no way, What worked in the end was that we saw betrayal of trust, misguided though Gibbs was, he believed that Luke was still that good kid who was totally freaked out at seeing his dead parents. But he;s not, When you observe young kids today, they seem in their own world they aren't paying attention to anything but what they are doing, literally walking into you or walking right behind your car, blissfully unaware, or just self absorbed into believing that you should make way for them should you see them.Detached and connected to earbuds, or furiously texting while adults are trying to communicate with them.these are not the kids of yesteryear. I see the ring leaders as Fagin and his crew in Oliver Twist, I also see a little of the Pied Piper, a man who believed he's owed something for a service and then takes the children away. Budd said he deserved respect, so he's going to make the world pay. Some have objected to this portrayal of children as evil beings, but kids are blank slates, they can lose a moral compass in the morass of games, chatrooms, and who's really there to monitor them anymore? And mentor them?

The teenage Styne was meant to be an echo of Dean.
Forced to slice and dice someone against their will. The product of an evil bloodline that may be unredeemable, (if you accept the notion of Destiny)
The fans generally accept that Dean was a victim,coerced to do what he did in Hell.
However, Dean never forgave himself, and repeatedly assured folks he would 'burn in hell' for what he did.
Dean from earlier seasons would NOT have killed humans with such dead eyes, without remorse or soul searching. "Humans ain't our thing", as Bobby said. Human justice requires due process and a jury of your peers and that sort of thing. Not a demonic vigilante.
Dean from earlier seasons would NOT have killed the teen.
And Dean from earlier seasons rejected Destiny, and instead invented Team Free Will.

Teen geek who has no interest in the family business, who can't wait to get out and away to start a "normal" life, who is the rebellious one and has to be practically coerced into doing what his family does, who is bookish and who thinks twice while his family wants to shoot first - sounds more like and echo of Sam than Dean to me.

The teenage Styne was meant to be an 'echo' of Sam actually. The monster blood, the unwillingness to partake in the family business, being forced to do things he doesnt want to by his family. Dean's killing of baby Styne was a direct parallel to the idea that Dean will likely kil Sam in the finale.

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 22 Review: Masha Rostova

I think as a series ender, the episode was fine...at this point not so interested in another season, because what, so she is a spy, she's not a spy, she is faking, she's not faking, there's another cabal, not another cabal, Tom is good, no he's bad...it's run it's course and could go off into TV history as a neat little show that had the twist of Spader being so good....so that's it, Hollywood, I have spoken. Move on to new challenges.

Couldn't agree more. Next season looks like it will be very different form the two previous ones. Problem is, I liked the original "clean" premise of the criminal of the week approach with a just hint of a back story about the main characters revealed week by week. What has happened is that the series has deteriorated into just another round of paranoid/"trust no one" episodes where your government is portrayed as untrustworthy and run by a back room of schemers and evil plotters. Don't Americans trust their authorities any more? Must every show have internal tensions instead of just external threats? Sadly, Marvel's Agents and CSI Cyber also seem to be going this way. None of these shows may be on my PVR next fall.

agreed - agents of shield also had a good enough wrap up...and the other show I was into Last Man on Earth, that, too...otherwise is just a dead horse

I too often like the criminal of the week approach, but I'm also looking forward to seeing the show expand beyond that (if it's done well, of course). Though I'm sure dealing with the blacklisters isn't over yet by a long shot. We will definitely see how it all goes when it returns in S3!

@ just1guywhocares

Spader is definitely standout on this show. Though, and if they stick with it, I'm curious to see how S3 will be without Red sending the FBI team to take on a blacklister every week since he's on the run with Liz. It could be a solid change for the series, and I'm interested to see how it goes.

I know that Jonathan Nolan from Person of Interest likes to keep things fresh each season, so he mixes it up, otherwise things get stale. As much as I have loved The Blacklist so far, I am definitely open to the show going in a new direction. This is one of my top 5 favourite shows, and I do not want to see it die anytime soon. NBC has already done it a huge disservice by moving it to Shonda Rhimes night.

Arrow Season 3 Finale Review: My Name is Oliver Queen

Ra's Al Ghul, like Buster Douglas before him. TOOK A SERIOUS DIVE. I Think we have a new character for Floyd Mayweather's punchout: Glass Al Gul.............. If the way we feel about Season 3 and the Season 3 finale is any indication of sentiment nationwide, then I wonder what the next Comic-Con will be like with the "ARROW CAST PANEL". I think you might see quite a few of the shows stars skip the next one when questions about Season 3 come up............ That promises to be a bloodbath....................

I am so glad Elena Gilbert is finally gone. Good riddance to a character that turned Stephen first and Damon later into total weak punks. I hope she never reappears on TVD. Now maybe the writers can get to the business of writing character-based storylines. Bring in some real villains for Damon, Stephen, Bonnie, and Caroline to join forces and defeat. If any romances occur, please writers let it be brief moments, not whole episodes trying to convince TVD fans of its significance.

The Best of 2014: The Worst Show on TV

This writer doesn't know his A** from a hole in the ground! Under the Dome is based on a STEPHEN KING novel and its going to be told in the way it needs to be told to do Stephen proud! People just don't have patience anymore and give up on stuff entirely too quickly! As for The Following, yeah, Season 2 was a did but THIS SEASON with the addition of Theo and the emotional episode of Joe finally meeting his maker has been off the chain good and very suspenseful! So in my eyes, KUDOS to both of those amazing shows!

Now everything that could go wrong did go wrong?!
Great. Look at my suspension of disbelief.. its flying off like a scared pidgeon.
Far fetched isn't even cutting it close here. I've been watching Bones with doubts for a while, this, now, is where I've had enough. Maybe I can still pretend the last 3 seasons didn't exist.
