I am a retired baby boomer. I have seen way too much television in my lifetime, and I am not overly impressed with a lot of what is being created today.  As it runs down,  time has more value to me.  I am less inclined to waste it on trash. If I consider a program to be trash, I will say so.  I don't really care what anyone's opinion of me is; I am too old for that fifth grade stuff, too.  I am not here to be liked. What I see as well done, I will watch, and discuss.  I don't intend to deliberately offend anyone, so assume that I am your grandmother, and take that into account.   Old people do not view the world from the same vantage point as the young. The picture is Doc Holliday.

One of the great joys in life is watching David McCallum. I just saw an old episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. the other night, and now we get to see him in the present day. He has aged spectacularly, and his work load is very light; this past season, even a lot of his "Ducky" episode was the young man portraying him in his youth, not the current Ducky. I would be bereft if they lose him for dramatic purposes. Should he retire of his own free will, or for health reasons, I would be VERY sorry, but not angry. (signed, Aging Fan Girl) As far as Delilah is concerned, I am indifferent. Losing Zoe would also make no impression on me. I would not recognize either character or actress, if one of them rang the door bell on my house. I do not think that Dorny is involved enough to come back as a ghost (à la Mike Franks), as someone had mentioned in the review comments earlier this week, but he certainly would fit the description of "fan favorite". People have been amused by that character since its inception, and he has a long continuity to provide background. I do not see Gibbs playing racket ball. Something else is going on, but I cannot imagine Jake would die. He is too new. Should it be Vance, I would again be ticked off. While I do not particularly like the character, I have gotten used to the way NCIS runs under him. Not interested in learning a whole new set of quirks. Losing Fornell would be devastating to Gibbs, and to his daughter. It would also be a mistake, IMHO, from the point of view of future story lines. It is just too useful to have a senior FBI agent be so close to Gibbs that he occasionally moves in with him. Losing McGee or Tony would be horrendous and in my opinion, idiotic. Losing Gibbs would end the show -- people watch to see Mark Harmon. Abby is supposedly the most popular television character in the world. Not likely. The other Abby, Borin of the Coast Guard, has been making a lot of appearances on NCIS New Orleans. Unlikely. The show went to a huge amount of trouble to insert Bishop into the team. I cannot see them taking her out now that she has somewhat been accepted. I would not care if they did, though. (And I am NOT a Ziva fan, so do not go there.) The ex-Army girl friend Hollis Mann has never really fit the description of fan favorite. Alan Dale, the former director, has not been around enough for fans to miss him when/if he is gone. Palmer and/or his wife and child is a possibility. McGee's grandmother, Lily Tomlin, or Tony's dad, Robert Wagner, are certainly possible, and LT would fit the description in her own right, not so much that of her character. Mr. DiNozzo brightens the show, though. As Tony seems to have somewhat resolved his issues with his father, it would probably be the logical and cruel time to kill off the character. Abby's brother has not been on enough to qualify. Were they to kill off Ziva, I can't imagine how they could keep it quiet in this world of Twitter, etc. I do think that killing off popular characters just to provide a cliff hanger is kind of cheap. It does seem like laziness on the part of the writers and show runners, because they cannot think of anything else interesting to portray. That said, I think the most likely place for lightning to strike is in the morgue.

Pritchett went into politics, I think they said. Councilman or something. He is no longer on the job.

NCIS Season 12 Episode 22 Review: Troll

My last job sucked. I was there 15 years, and I would still be there, had I not been forced to retire during the Great Recession. There are many valid reasons for staying in a dreadful job.
