Are you serious?
McGee was the one sitting at his desk looking at a girlie magazine.
I don't think that the writers are giving only Tony personality. I think that it's Michael Weatherly's ability to make even the most mundane writing pop. The other actors aren't as capable of making this happen, even when they are given drama, intense scenes, and action filled danger moments on a silver platter. TPTB simply don't want to acknowledge that for instance Gibbs, isn't the only one worthy or drama and action. They give him all the good writing but it's gotten old and boring because we've seen all of Harmon's tricks a million times. Now they are pushing McGee who is also limited in what he's good and not a terribly dynamic actor. Neither of these two pushed forward actors have as much "pah" as Tony and yet they (and especially Gibbs) dominate every story so the show lacks its once very present, personality filled banter. They continue to limit Tony to the humor moment and mundane scenes while giving GIbbs, McGee, and even Vance and Ellie more of the serious stories and action and this limitation has made the show dull. They just can't seem to suck it up and admit to themselves that they need to give Tony some real drama and action. It's GIbbs by himself or with anyone but Tony in the exciting and significant story arcs and it's gotten dull, dull, dull.
