In earlier seasons, the character development was more important than the story line. Now the story seems to be more important than the character development. In the past few years, rarely do you see ALL team members together in one scene (all of them in Abby's lab, all in Ducky's lab, or all of them in the evidence garage) as they were especially in the first few seasons. This gave more dynamic conversations and character development. Now we just see Gibbs and Abby, or Gibbs and Ducky, or Abby and Ducky, or Gibbs and McGee. Can't have much banter like that. It was so much FUN to watch before. It takes more time and effort to write everyone into a scene and to direct all of it, but he product was much, much more enjoyable before.
