2016 Jan 19 Critique of NCIS episode Deja Vu

By |January 19th, 2016|

Tonight’s episode of NCIS was another trendy episode featuring the problem of international victimization of women through sex trafficking. It is reminiscent of the movie with Liam Neeson, “Taken,” which showed much more brutal aspects of these cases. Once again, Ellie Bishop is in the lead role with mere cameo appearances by Tim McGee and [...]

2016 Jan 05 NCIS Critique of “Sister City”

By |January 6th, 2016|

We’ve written in the past how we don’t enjoy NCIS episodes that are so long they have to be continued on another night. The writers accommodated us last night as the main NCIS show continued over into NCIS New Orleans, where events are completely resolved. These were two complicated episodes for two consecutive hours, but [...]

Merry Christmas to All

By |December 19th, 2015|

As Christmas approaches, it is with Joy in our hearts that we send you this greeting. Since we aren’t able to celebrate Christ the Savior’s birth with you, we send you this link to David Phelps’ rendition of O Holy Night. According to Zondervan Publishing’s “Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas”, during the Franco-Prussian [...]

2015 Dec 15 NCIS Critique of “Spinning Wheels”

By |December 15th, 2015|

Tonight’s show was not a typical investigation for the NCIS team. While the death of a hero marine is the basis for their search for killers, this is their Christmas show where they feature the hopes and dreams of various team members. In doing so, the show’s writers use a technique we actually employed in [...]

Disappointed by Hallmark Channel’s “The Bridge”

By |December 7th, 2015|

Each Christmas season, when CBS chooses to run other specials in place of their most successful NCIS show, we delight in watching the many excellent Christmas themed two-hour specials on Hallmark Channel. Instead of paying special attention to the NCIS show so we can write our weekly critique (the next new NCIS episode airs December [...]

Happy Thanksgiving

By |November 26th, 2015|

Emily Wickersham is Thankful to be Ellie Bishop. Many NCIS viewers have feelings (positive or negative) about the way the writers of the NCIS show replaced Cote De Pablo with Emily Wickersham’s character, Ellie Bishop. We are sending along this Parade Magazine interview of Wickersham, so you’ll have some insight into her personally and into [...]

2015 Nov 24 NCIS Critique of “Blood Brothers”

By |November 24th, 2015|

In this episode, Gibbs and his team launch an effort to locate the only surviving sibling of Navy Lieutenant Alex Quinn who needs a bone marrow transplant. Lt. Quinn’s mother has already lost two of her children in the military service of their country, thus the SECNAV insists NCIS locate Sean Quinn, her only non-military [...]

2015 Nov 17 NCIS Critique of “Day In Court”

By |November 17th, 2015|

Once again, this episode went outside of NCIS jurisdiction, but we are getting used to that. The writers wrote a really good episode about Navy Petty Officer Kyle Friedgen who demands that NCIS investigate his alleged murder of his former girl friend, after his case was dismissed due on a technicality in a Baltimore court. [...]

2015 Nov 10 NCIS Critique of “Saviors”

By |November 11th, 2015|

While tonight’s episode had no true basis as an NCIS case, we found it close to home. The Navy jurisdiction was based on Naval medical personnel volunteering in South Sudan who were killed and/or missing. Those of you who have read our novels know that there is a character named Wally in three of our [...]
