I liked Jamie story line I hope we see more of him
Blue Bloods is so consistently top-notch, I have come to rely on it as a bench mark in professional script-writing and ensemble acting.
How did the script of "Insult to Injury" make it to production; and why was the direction and guest acting so dismally sub-par?
A real disappointment.
I continue to be amazed by the cinematography with this show.........
I agree with the reviewer in that I've become used to the gore that is depicted in this show...........
The scene with Hannibal nonchalantly fixing his gourmet meal with the leg of that victim ...........wow.........
How long can they drag out Hannibal getting away with what he's getting away with? And what direction could the show go if it is figured out?????????
I think Sami and EJ show once in their lifetime finally be happy they need to find peace this is the last year she need to find peace and happiness
DiNozzo Senior episodes usually make me jeer because they just seem to be a repeat of the first installment. I was pleasantly surprised with this helping. It feels like there is potential for forward movement.
I loved that Senior saw what Tony's job actually involves. Finally, he gets the fact that his son risks his life doing his 9-5. I loved that just when you thought Tony was going to get found out by Gibbs, he got himself out of a jam with some quick thinking. And I loved his honesty with his father, and Gibbs, with regard to what was going on with family matters.
Weatherly owned this episode especially in Bodine's office, and he can most certainly keep that hat on! I wish the writers would make more use of WeatherIy's ability to ad lib. It certainly spices things up. I was a little let down by Wagner's performance though. I feel the material was really there this time for a standout performance and it just wasn't coming.
A good case and nice to see Bishop being a Probie. It feels like we have had the same version of Bishop two weeks in a row now. She is certainly shaping up to be Tony's protege more than McGee's. Gibbs is very hands off with her. I wonder whether this means it might fall on Tony to discipline her when it is needed? And perhaps that's one reason Bishop is there.... for Tony's development rather than just to fill a void.
But again the episode felt a little flat. Perhaps telling the story out of order might have given it a little more PAH.
But hooray that a) no love triangle. b) no young step mom that likely would be gone by Christmas c) no sordid affair between Senior and the God Mother whilst mummy was alive d) it's a step sister for Tony NOT a long lost half sister.
I also couldn't help but draw some comparisons. The Fornell's asked for blessing and now Senior has asked for blessing. Is there a theme here?
Finally I liked Taylor. Can we see her again? Unlike some folks I like that we haven't met 'mum' yet. Let the casting guesses begin. I'd rather see more of the ever expanding Family DiNozzo than ex-wive #2 who is scheduled to appear.
I think Jane said to Fischer something like
"Do you always cover up your guilt with anger" in some past episode.
From the bits I have heard/seen she seems to be angry/hostile/tense a lot of the time. So is guilt causing her personality? Whats the big backstory going to be if so?
There were some lovely moments in this episode, but over all I have to say I was disappointed. I'm a big Tony DiNozzo/Michael Weatherly fan but sadly he seems to have been sidelined of late, in fact pretty much since Bishop joined the team. I loved the start of the episode, it was great seeing Tony again as the competent investigator and I thought that Robert Wagner was terrific, and with an IA investigation under way and Senior as the only witness I was looking forward to a tense and potentially angsty episode. But then we got into the quite complicated case which for me swamped and unbalanced the episode. In my opinion the writers tried to pack too much in with three equally important plots vying for attention: the case, the AI investigation and Senior's secret, with the result that the latter two suffered by being rushed. After being the focal point at the start the AI investigation just seemed to fizzle out and Tony's acceptance of the fact that his godmother was marrying his dad just felt too quick. Instead of the very brief Gibbs/DiNozzo scene in the bullpen I would like to have seen Tony seek out Gibbs' basement (in the same way that Senior did) when perhaps Gibbs could have admitted that he was less than sympathetic and didn't listen to his dad when Jackson bought a woman to Shannon's funeral and they ended up estranged for 30 plus years, adding that Senior's an old man now and maybe Tony should give the situation some serious thought before letting this come between them. It also felt odd to me that Tony's "Godmother" didn't make an appearance. Apparently she had known Tony all his life and faced with the possibility of being responsible for coming between her fiancé and his son why didn't she try herself to convince Tony that she had not had an affair with his father.
It was lovely to finally have a few decent scenes with Palmer, but where was Vance?! Very surprised that the 250th episode did not feature the entire team, particularly when the plot called for him to be there, i.e. surely the Director would have had something to say when one of his agents was under an AI investigation.
However, aside from what I felt was a bit of a mishmash of a plot, I have to say that I thought both Michael Weatherly and Robert Wagner were terrific, I would just like to have seen more of them.
Let's see more of Tony/Michael Weatherly in serious story lines.
I hope we don´t get to see the gang helping Elena coming over this urge to feed on vampires more than we have gotten to see Stefan helping Damon. That would really upset me. It´s enough that Elena got the vrius also. I was kind of looking forward to a Damon - and only Damon - storyline where he was affected by the virus, but no. Elena must of course have the more dangerous stuff and everyone are felling sorry for her (no, I don´t like Elena after she became a vampire or togheter with Damon, in my eyes Damon is tipping on toes around her - it makes his charchter not him- so i really hope Elena gets cured (if there is a cure Damon will force Stefan or someone else to give it to Elena...) so we can get a more awesome storyline with Damon!
gotta say, Frank storyline is very boring...I want him gone for good!
I loved the way Lip kicked them out, he was so strong...and in control, although very mad at them! Way to stand up for your family!
I think Lip will resent Fiona for a while...I honestly cannot make up my mind about the fact that yes, it was an accident, but hey, she should know better, even though I get she is young and all! But if you choose to be a parent, you stick with it, you can't act like that anymore.
Someone should be taking care of Debbie...she needs guidence, NOW!
Sara is unrealistic, you can have a relationship, your work and everything, you know?!!! you do not need to break up with the guy!!!!! you let Carl go to Africa alone for a week, you end your project, and then when he is back you can still make it work! this is life!I really don't get her. I don't like her with Hank, they lack connection. I didn't like her with Carl either, I don't know, the guy seems to perfect to me, however, he is better that Hank!
Julia being friend with Ed is kind of cool, I don't think she should try to make things work with Joel anymore...he really annoyed me, the way he talked down at her...who the fuck he thinks he is??!! Mr. Perfect Dad?
I really do not care about Kristina school, honestly! she is wonder woman...the cancer, the mayor, the school...can we give something to do to Adam, Jasmine and other people on the show too?
Loved Mr. Knight though...I hope Amber sets her eyes on the guy, she deserves someone cool!
Drew...Natalie...I am doozing off!...if I were Drew, I'll totally tell her to go to hell!
