as i live in Dk and the supposedly casted actor is a Dane, I must say there is great ferment on local newspapers. For his sake and of this whole country, I hope he will be confirmed :))
So funny! This Glasberg guy makes NCIS a show for seniors only! All about Gibbs and his blonde cutie Bishop who isn't believable at all in a crime show!Tony should take over the team and get Ziva back because these two were exciting! I used to watch this show with my family, now the comment section here is more entertaining than the show with a blonde Baby agent and a Botox Barbie for Tony! Sorry CBS but NCIS is a show for the old folks now!
When did Bishop share classified information? I know her husband did because he felt it was the right thing to do.
Meanwhile, Bishop shares classified information like it's a free brochure. If they are actually using any kind of consultant, I would be shocked. The show USED to be pretty good about that, but they threw it completely out the window. She and her husband should have been put in lockup years ago if we are to believe they shared stuff about work like they supposedly did. Funny thing but, you slam Ziva for the POTENTIAL of committing a crime against the US, but on the show, she never did. Not even close. On the other hand, Bishop does it flagrantly as SOP.

hello its always been a show for more mature people and those who respect more mature people. Like our kids and grandkids. Teach em right and they'll enjoy NCIS, teach em wrong, Miley Cyrus
Thanks. As I don't qualify as "old folks" yet, even after 12 yeas of watching and enjoying NCIS, what precisely should I be watching? - in your sage opinion.PS. A Mossad agent joining a team of US law enforcement investigators was way more implausible than the "blonde cutie" and, personally, I've never found any excitement in domestic abuse.
I don't think it's a show for seniors only but I totally agree with you that the blonde baby agent is totally unbelievable. I think they jumped in to replace Cote too quickly, didn't take time to get a viable replacement. Frankly, I could not care less about Bishop and her marriage. Tony and Ziva and the interaction between the two, even leaving out the romantic implications, made a much more exciting program. Sometimes dull and boring anymore.
And Ziva was believable at all? Since when is a spy/assassin for a foreign government that isn't necessarily always the US' friend suddenly being allowed free access to NCIS and all its classified information, not to mention being allowed to interrogate US citizens, even remotely believable? I find Ellie a lot more believable than Ziva ever was.
It's very obvious that they use a consultant since he came up with a script for them a couple of seasons ago. At least I think it was a couple. and while you're (endlessly) maligning Bishop, let's not forget all that ziva did during her tenure. And Jenny with the frog. and even Gibbs for that matter. But returning to your (endless) defense of ziva, her crimes began when she first landed and didn't end til she left. They've been detailed over and over again by many, despite the defense the tantrum throwing few repeat as if from a script.
Yes, I too read that they used a consultant for her first too episodes. It's very obvious they never called him again. Why would they have to? she does no analysis.(insert Anna's obligatory Ziva bashing retort any time she doesn't have a good answer to something)
They have retired NCIS agents on both the mothership and NOLA - something you undoubtedly know. There was an interview that said they consulted someone affiliated with NSA back when they first created Bishop. Don't see why they'd need to continue consulting NSA about a character that is a Probie NCIS agent. But then whatever you can use to crap on the character will undoubtedly be spewn - with no canon backup.
Ziva was a believable agent. Bishop doesn't look like she could win a fight against a dandelion. She certainly stopped being a believable genius a very long time ago.
Ziva - who went from 5 fluent languages to 10 in the space of a year or two and who was written as ridiculously young considering many many years worth of listed accomplishments and overblown abilities was really a mary sue. Agentscully- I don't mean to be disrespectful because I feel that you and I agree on many things and I appreciate your contributions often. Was Ziva written to be exciting? Absolutely. Was she realistic? Sorry, but no. I don't love or dislike Bishop. She has not been written in a compelling way but the current ptb just aren't inspired unless they are giving Gibbs a new tragedy to deal with. But I do think Bishop is more realistic than Ziva if realistic is important.
I agree Ziva was not realistic, and as I have said many times, I feel Bishop is not a bit realistic either. WHich one is less realistic is a matter of (endless) argument. In any case, I don't watch NCIS for realism, I watch for entertainment, which means engaging characters and great stories. Very few characters on the show are "realistic", and while I think there needs to be SOME degree of realism, I am willing to let it go for a great character with a great story. I feel Ziva was one of those characters.
There was nothing believable about ziva.
What's funny is you who after a long time of being quite comes back to say the same well rehersed line. I actually though you grew up and left to do something productive instead. But it seems you're still the immature troll shame.
The show from its inception has always skewed to a more middle aged audience. Not sure what your pont is outside of whining about ziva
after this nearly dead exp. Gibbs needs to dare a love live
I hate it when they do things like the Gibbs shooting to team members. Why can't they just do the regular show by show without all the character melodrama?
They bring in Jake and Sr and Delilah so that Gibbs supporting cast can have their tiny little one and done. Maybe tptb know that on some level (although it apparently seems pretty inconceivable to them) that some fans actually prefer other characters to Harmon's Gibbs. Absolute blasphemy, I know. but they write not very important one and dones that often don't even bother to flatter the featured character much for their obligatory one and done each year sprinkled in with the virtual boat load of Gibbs, Gibbs, Gibbs, and more Gibbs episodes. Usually the team members one and done features Gibbs offering sage words of wisdom to solve the conflict or Gibbs, still portrayed as the biggest hero of all somehow. It's pretty blatant who tptb are required to flatter and feature. I'm a little embarrassed for them at the blatant nature of the favoritism and the blatant way the intentionally diminish certain characters. Definitely makes me wonder who is calling the shots.
Gibbs rarely talks so I'm missing the sage advice. Isn't it more how the team responds to Gibbs when he's in trouble,or step up when he expects them to deliver. That's what they do.. it's that way to me . let's see Tony had the Leia flirtation , two senior visits, a few Zoe's tossed in, did verbal battle with Borin, and dragged his boss back across the Finnish border, that's only a few things he did. We saw Jake more than once for sure Delilah was a full episode and Tim got plenty of exposure this yr for the first time in like forever. Tony and McGee and Bishop are Gibbs underlings, not his equals. He's their boss last I looked. Tony shined in Grounded, Cadence, no good deed , patience, twenty klicks, San Dominick,, and was no wall flower in any of the other episodes this yr. I never see Gibbs as a hero. He's the leader and he has a job to do, catch dirtbags. The side crises of which there was only one Sergei, who got his revenge on Gibbs, sadly, I liked Diane, but that connection went all the way back to the beginning of the show. Actually a good reach back. You just want something more meaningful for your favorite I get it, but Tony isn't boss, he's the senior field agent under Gibbs. Gibbs will always be in the picture as long as he's the boss. And that means his air time will be more and his life will be more the focus. But he's not the sole focus of the show.
Tony shined in 20 klicks (yeah- while Gibbs and McGee survived a helicopter crash, wolf attack, and mercenary fire, Tony clicked the clicker). Are you serious? He was barely on since Vance took over. You're calling a 20 second scene with Tony getting Gibbs on board after ALL the danger had passed a big Tony moment? Yeah right. Gibbs solves everyone's personal problems now. If there is going to be a "moment" between any two cast members or cast member and guest star, it will be Gibbs and fill in the blank. Neither Senior episode flattered Tony at all and he certainly wasn't ever the one in any of the exciting scenes in either of those. Grounded was a good episode and yes, miraculously, Tony did more than click the clicker, but it was more team than Tony centric ( which IMO was something that made it stand out as one of the season's strongest episodes). Cadence was really the only Tony centric episode and while it didn't diminish Tony in any way, it was hardly a nail biter and of course Tony didn't really do much in the present to solve the case. The San Dominick was all about Gibbs awesomeness so I can't believe you could actually think Tony fans would get excited about the millionth - Isn't Gibbs the most awesome agent? episode. You seem to be supposing that because they actually cast Tony in a few scenes where he's at least not humiliated, that it's some immense gift that Tony fans should be damned grateful to get. This season was all about giving poor poor Gibbs angst and hero moments. Since Glasberg and company are consistently predictable I'm guessing that this will be the major focus of this season as well.
Then stop watching! Doing your job isn't being a hero, it's doing your job. Is Tony to your knowledge capable of doing bomb deactivation? Does he have military training? No Tony is a cop. Gibbs is the former marine and the protagonist of the show. Tony fans don't need a gift they need to get over themselves. Since I thought early Tony was a real jerk, I happy with this Tony, because he now seems to care about more than just getting the bosses approval all the while ranking on his coworkers. He deserved those head slaps in the past. Don't want to see them any more because he doesn't need them he's a much better agent, and person. Gibbs sage advice as you put it is appropriate as he is the surrogate father to them all, and he's the guy training them to replace him eventually. At least he cares about them, best boss ever in my book. Guiding and training requires that you take the lead set the example or be there in the back ground to back up your protege, or in Bishops case fledgling. No matter what Gibbs is gonna be there. So buckle up a new season is upon us, or don't . Like Olivia Benson, it's always obvious who the prime character is and has been. Never hear anyone complain about her crowding out the others. And she does.
I'm a little embarrassed for you that your powers of observation are so warped, that you think it's practically a conspiracy that it's only Gibbs who is heroic. He's no hero. He's no one I'd want anyone to emulate. If anything he's a tragedy, but it's his pain that's driven himand also made him alone. Gibbs is a leader, that's his best quality. The others still need to find their own leadership skills. Tony still second guesses himself, Tim still lacks confidence, but they are beginning to bloom in their own way. I tire of you conspiracy theorists that make it seem as if the characters are prisoners of an evil show runner and egotistical star. Neither is true, and that's a fact not theory.
Sigh the Gibbs character is the centerpiece of the show. The others revolve around him. His family or pack, as it were. The other characters like Bishop and their separate family relationships reflect the greater Gibbsiverse, his hopes for them to stay stable, to grow, to step up. And stay together including their larger family units, they will explore the other circles of the team but the center circle is Gibbs and their experiences as a team. They are not designed to be equals.and the Gibbs melodrama really started with DPB, in Hiatus and even before with the hints of a traumatic past. You might feel that there were more other team members that were highlighted more often, but that's not really true, if they were highlighted like Tony taking lead in Bait, well it was Gibbs who was in jeopardy, and Ziva who kept picking at Tony's leadership. Guess we'll just continue to disagree on this as I never see this as poor poor Gibbs,he's the guy who refuses to be the victim. That's why this year is going to start out interesting, because this time he really is the victim
The constant melodrama for Gibbs is the brain child of Mr. Glasberg and the producers. They are spoiling story lines for Bishop and Tony, but let's face it - fans of these two will be lucky if they get more than a barely thought out one and done. It's become the dramas and tragedies of poor poor Gibbs all the time show and no one else really matters a flip to tptb.
The ensemble is the centerpiece, or it used to be. Now it is ONLY Gibbs, which it never was before. STF and I agree on that point.
Exactly! It USED to be an ensemble with Harmon's Gibbs cast as the leader. Now it's ONLY about Gibbs with the rest of them as nothing but background noise 90 percent of the time. Guess it's great if you're a Gibbs fan or Mr. Harmon.
The ensemble hasn't been the centerpiece for a long time....got SB to thank for that unfortunately.
Well if it's only Gibbs as you say why even bring in Sr or Jake or Delilah or Zoe or McGees dad, and before that Jackie and Eli, Ari with his Gibbs obsession to get us to Ziva. Oops see it's always been the Gibbs circle with the other rings coming in to connect. You just think the other characters were more meaningful back in the day. Not really there were just fewer of them. Of course like you that's just my opinion leave it at that.
NCIS is the best [ FANTASTIC ]
Reading your review, this episode was definitely filler material. As for Coco, she better be up to something coz this storyline is just YURK ! Palmer is gonna get it ! Oh I loved how he teased Eichorst about the Master choosing Bolivar, but I think in the end, he's gonna get it lol. And Eichorst will happily oblige !Man human-Kelly was a sight for sore eyes. I too enjoyed all her scenes and the makeup one was priceless. The fight at the end was sooo cool ! I'm not sure if she got any more feelers left tho... Quinlan and Gus, say what !! How awesome was their encounter ! As for Quinlan and the main group, them bombing the place and costing him a chance to get the Master probably didn't seat well with him... The rest was irrelevant. LOL. That kid needs to go ! Dutch in my opinion is already going, so that's fine coz at this point, the drama is really getting in the way of it all !
If they'd killed Killjoys and given Dark Matter a 26 episode season, that would have been better.
Elizabeth, not cool you hating on Bassam and Dayliah. The best kind of love is the love of angst, longing, understanding, obsession, connection before the sex. Sex will be the icing. Bassam and Dayliah have that. And what he said to his son about his connection to her was real talk. Jamal is only dead if the show isn't renewed. Otherwise, he is still alive. There will be no elections because he will be in critical condition but very much alive. As such, he never stepped down. Bassam will not kill his brother or let him die. He's a doctor for God's sake. He already told his son that there was enough killing and death. We will see.
Daliyah and Barry have a connection because of an intensely traumatic shared experience, which does not equal love, let alone a good foundation for a lasting relationship. Sure it can be hot. But what Barry has with Molly is a more fulfilling kind of love, and if he threw it all away, I really wouldn't be able to respect him. Just because you have an attraction or connection with someone doesn't mean you should be with them. Again, while I'm 90% certain that Jamal is dead, if the show gets renewed that could always change. But as much as I love watching him, I hope he stays dead. It creates a political instability that would be great for this story.
Love the 100. This sounds interesting.
Pelant needs to be done! I hate that villain and story line.
