Just saw MW's couple of tweets that his advice about women and chasing was from Peter O'Toole from My Favorite Year. That's certainly an appropriate from the cinephile DiNozzo.
Gotta agree. I too thought McGee and Delilah were beyond this stage of their ship but I can only write it off to the time and distance since they were last in the same zip code. Sometimes it's just not ..smoothe when the mojo's been interrupted. But I like Delilah and was glad to see her. On Tony's and Bishop's 'phenomenally bad advice', just gonna have to let this one go at a writer going for something that didn't work because, really, it was too phenomenally bad to be believed it could come from 2 grown people. But "Honey" was as great a passage as this one was bad and yeah, I was proud of Vance for his tongue-in-cheek'yness. So two-enthusiastic-thumbs-up to the 'two great team ups'. Delilah's "Why did you let me?". I can only hide behind 'It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind'. Yeah, I'm fully aware how unfair that was to Tim but really, he was never going to be allowed a right answer .. it could only be right in a specific point in time, not in perpetuity, which is to say it's wrongness was only ever a matter when not if. Gotta give Tim a thumbs up for the kiss at the end though. I did spare a thought to note that now we've had a McGee and Delilah held captive to mirror the one in Angel of Death with Tony and Jeanne. Guess it's Jake and Bish's turn next. They're a dangerous group to date.
I can appreciate we all have different favorites. I do like McGee very much, as I do each and every team member. In fact the eps in which the McNozzo brotherly bond shines are among my favorites and that didn't happen until she-who-must-not-be-named left. (I agree tiva was a fiasco!) It takes all of them to create an ensemble and I wouldn't want a single one of the remaining to exit. I understand your view about McGee having been relegated to more computer and technology based sleuthing. That's his niche but it could be expanded and has been. After reading your post, I decided to take a look. Since I own them all, I scanned quickly through the first few eps of this season and found McGee in quite a lot of it. He went all the way to Russia in this season's opener. In 12x02, KTM, Gibbs took him on at least 2 interviews (football field & office), In12x03 he accompanied Gibbs (ASIG, the young ducky ep) to talk to the runner who died in front of them, and of course he's with the whole team at every crime scene. I think he might be in more than it seems because Tim's personality is more subtle and steady and calm, which lends that perhaps he fades into the background a little more even though he's very much a part of the team. It's just many of the others (Gibbs, Tony, Abby, Vance) have bigger personalities who seem to jump out a little more because of it. The positive thing about McGee is that even if/when it's only computer related, he still comes off as awesome at his job. That's something the writers give to Tony only in seldom snippets. Instead they give him the grandiose personality and make him the focal comical point so I can see where it might seem to you that Tony is in a more dominating position. I can pretty much tell we are destined to disagree on some things but it is funny how we all see differently. I always thought it was Ziva that dominated everything for the last multi-year seasons she was on. Personally, I'm happy with no one really dominating and allowing them all to shine. That's the point of an ensemble. Many of us just see the screen time Tony is allotted as not always being shine-worthy moments. At least you do get to say your fave is always portrayed as competent.
