2017 Feb 7 NCIS Critique of “Nonstop”

If you’ve recorded tonight’s episode of NCIS and you are wondering if it’s worth watching, the answer is yes. Unlike some episodes where it is gory and too complex for the one hour allotted, “Nonstop” is a light hearted suspense that includes Robert Wagner as Tony Di Nozzo Sr. He’s always a hit. As the story develops, Di Nozzo Sr. tells Gibbs that he came back to the U.S. after visiting Tony Jr. and his child Tallie in Paris and Sr. was in a funk. At Junior’s suggestion, Di Nozzo Sr. joined a Virginia Sheriff’s volunteer group of Sherlocks. Imagine that Junior was thinking his Dad would be driving around with another silver haired volunteer in a ‘volunteer posse’ checking for violators illegally parking in handicap spaces. That is not was his Dad was doing. He and two other volunteers (one an attractive female senior played by Jessica Walter) were actually sworn as special deputy sheriffs and the Sheriff was insisting on shared jurisdiction on an NCIS murder investigation in his county. Actually, NCIS would really have no jurisdiction in that case.

After a female Seaman returns home for deployment on a Navy ship, she is found dead in her home. As Gibbs and his team proceed with their investigation, they find the local Sheriff and DiNozzo Sr and the other volunteers insist on helping. It is nothing like what would happen in real life, but it does make for an hour of light-hearted fare. Gibbs solves the case using his wits. We understand there have been other “Sherlock” episodes in past years, which we haven’t seen. Let us hear from you how this one stacks up and also if you believe Tony Jr. will appear on NCIS again this season.

Whatever your plans might be for next week, here is a head’s up. NCIS fans will see part 1 of Pandora’s Box at the regular time, and part 2 will air on NCIS New Orleans at 10 pm.

Be Blessed, Diane and David Munson

    I did enjoy this episode. But, like you said Tony DiNozzo Sr is always a hit! I was also glad when you mentioned that NCIS really have any jurisdiction with the original case.

    I believe, hopefully, that Tony Jr and Tallie will come back when McGee and Delilah get married.

    Ooops! (left out important word) I did enjoy this episode. But, like you said Tony DiNozzo Sr is always a hit! I was also glad when you mentioned that NCIS really did NOT have any jurisdiction with the original case.

    Open with an apology. We have been overwhelmed with our own investigations and family so just now getting caught up. realizing that there are aspects of each and every show that may not be possible or probable in the real NCIS world ( as you keep us informed) it seems that ,over the last few episodes that the writing content seems to be improving greatly. for a while it would loose my attention somewhere during the program and I would do something else, but not lately. New writers, new directors, one never knows. but between your expert analysis and the , what seems to me , a better direction for program content ( whether possible or not) I have to go back to giving both your professional analysis and programming content a great big 10. thank you again.

    It would Probably help the reviews of NCIS to have Robert Wagner on MORE!😊
