@Dani LOLOL! "Johnny Rainclouds?" snort! The "long defunct" mary sue accusation? Long defunct by who - you? C'mon take the mary sue litmus test on google. One flaw though - it only went as high as 8, for how many languages the character could speak.

@Eutrophicated1 Where I "work"? I'LL never tell ;-) I could only be forced to divulge on..a...um..er.."Need to Know" basis, and you most certainly do not need to know!! He he.

The "Play" may be the "thing", but the TRUTH is the LIGHT, always. Cheers!!!

Correction:

Thank you for that, MzLady. Guess we know where you work, heh heh.

@SAM Don't even worry about nonsensical comments from haters. Ziva could never be "MarySue-ish" if she tried! The only ones foolish enough to try and mask their disdain by pulling out the LONG-defunct "Mary Sue" accusation are the jealous "Johnny Rainclouds" of the world. Misery loves company.

Correction: Actually, no.. Nat is 200% correct: Leroy J. GIBBS is THE Preminent Star of NCIS, and always will be. He is supported by a FANTASTIC Cast of Characters that fans worldwide have come to love, but "the show" would NEVER thrive without the Boss. No Gibbs = No NCIS. REMINDER TO ALL NCIS FANS: Let's all be ready to join the celebration of the STAR of NCIS, Mr. Mark Harmon himself, as he gets ready to receive his STAR on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this coming Monday!! A tremendous honor for a tremendous Star!! Yaaay!!! :-D

Happy to see Brian Dietzen as a regular. He's been in the background a long time. I'm looking forward to see how they develop his character as a regular.

Just one more thing(heh heh) the process of storyline development for NCIS might need improving:
1. there needs to be something like an index card list of characters, which includes the 10 most significant list of character traits for each character. The storylines for a given set of episodes need to adhere to this list consistently.

2. A set of detailed storyboards needs to be set up for each storyline, the plots of which need to be crosschecked for consistency and completeness. No more holes in plot-logic, please.

Speaking of Gibbs/Dearing, people complaining about "not enough Tony" in THIS ep completely missed the entire storyline. GIBBS is the Star of NCIS, and THIS episode rightfully featured HIM, in the end. This was GIBBS' show - not Tony's.

Sorry, Nat, the storyline IS the star of the show; no amount of good acting can save a storyline that falls flat. The Harper Dearing storyline was too big for 5 eps. and, as presented, it fell flat. IMHO one more hour couldn't have saved it. Whoever decided to try it, should have waited to use it. It seemed a waste of a good idea.

An add on to my last comment: Just type mary sue into a google search and the mary sue test option comes right up, if you're curious.

I went to a site - it may have been a wiki site? (sorry can't remember) - that had a pretty extensive test for determining whether or not a character was a Mary Sue. Some of it was non applicable since a Mary Sue is a literary designation and Mary Sues are often written into fantasy genres, but even with skipping a lot of non applicable questions, Ziva's very high score left no doubt about her status as a Mary Sue.
