Well you call this an ensemble which is part of my point. It USED to be an ensemble. Now the show is all about the angst, dramas, traumas, and heroism of one cast member only. I definitely question the capabilities and especially the agenda of the writers and producers. Tony's "possibilities" are dictated by how tptb choose to either pigeon hole and limit him or decide to give him meaty stories that allow the character not only to matter to the story but also to grow and evolve as a character. No - I have absolutely no evidence that the actor may want out or that tptb have plans to write him out. But given how insignificant he's become and with the sudden focus and doubts emphasized on Tony's ability to lead, I have to wonder if this could be an exit strategy.
Well I don't know where you are getting your "insight" about my true motivations but I hope your voices will settle down. I actually don't - "hope it's Tony to force the show off the air" and I'm not really a big proponent of "fan loyalty" and I find the whole "true fan" argument pretty childish. I like Tony and would love to see his role increase and hardly because I think it would cause the show to go off the air. I think Glasberg and his repetitive Gibbs angst obsession are doing that just fine without me. Gibbs "faults" are always framed with a pity party story as were ZIva's. I found hers boring and Gibbs's constant angst a drag as well. Tony has been and is belittled. This was always the case but in the early years we also got to see that he had value and competence as well. Now he's mostly just written as insignificant.
But at least DPB's flawed characters were entertaining and interesting. GG's characters are kind of boring.
