2017 Mar 14 Critique of NCIS episode “M.I.A”

By |2017-03-14T23:24:48-04:00March 14th, 2017|NCIS|

Thank you Jennifer Corbett for writing the script for this episode of NCIS. Just when we think the show has passed its prime, writers like you come up with a great story line. Tonight’s show brings up events and people from the past in Gibbs’ life when one of his former commanding officers asks Gibbs [...]

  Viktor Leonov During the past few weeks, the U.S.’s forty-fifth President has been trying to form his new administration and the Russian spy ship Viktor Leonov has been patrolling just outside of the U.S.’s territorial waters near our Norfolk Naval Base. What is President Trump to make of this scenario? What are [...]

2017 Feb 21 Critique of NCIS episode ‘A Many Splendored Thing’

By |2017-05-19T13:10:06-04:00February 21st, 2017|NCIS|

We suffered through tonight’s episode of NCIS. It seemed schizophrenic. As we’ve written in the past, we keep hoping the writers and producers would move past the departure of some of NCIS’ best actors/characters and again produce real quality shows with the newly assembled cast. There have been a couple of episodes recently that encouraged [...]

2017 Feb 14 NCIS Critique of “Pandora’s Box”

By |2017-02-14T21:54:54-05:00February 14th, 2017|NCIS|

Tonight’s episode has a fatal flaw. We always said that we don’t knowingly watch a ‘to be continued’ TV program, or read a novel that is a prequel. Tonight’s episode of Pandora’s Box is really such a show. The first half aired on CBS in the eight o’clock hour with the conclusion airing at ten [...]

2017 Feb 7 NCIS Critique of “Nonstop”

By |2017-02-07T21:53:16-05:00February 7th, 2017|NCIS|

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 [...]

2017 Jan 17 NCIS Critique of “Off The Grid”

By |2017-01-17T23:18:01-05:00January 17th, 2017|NCIS|

Wow! They’re back. After the trauma of having Ziva and DiNozzo depart from the show, Gibbs’ reconstituted group has finally congealed. Tonight’s episode is well written and well acted. We really expected a continuation of the January 3rd episode (Willoughby) and the pursuit of a terrorist named Chen. Instead, while Ellie is distracted and examines [...]

2017 Jan 3 NCIS Critique of “Willoughby”

By |2017-05-19T13:10:06-04:00January 3rd, 2017|NCIS|

Our last blog was long because we shared a Washington Post article about a real live NCIS case. We wanted our readers to get an idea of how much work goes into a real case. So we thought that tonight’s episode of “Willoughby” would be a simple one-hour episode of a simpler case. Wrong! Instead [...]

Merry Christmas and See You Next Year

By now some of those of you who watch NCIS and respond to our comments on the show and other subjects, are wondering if we've abandoned you. Between the World Series, the election returns and the fact that we missed a few of the new NCIS shows, you've not been hearing much from us. Have [...]
