Hmm... This should be a round table question...

How is it obvious? How would you know? How would I know either for that matter? And why would the creators decide to do it? What's so different about this Tony, then the Tony of Season 1. I need specific examples.

@Kevin
I don't remember anyone saying that Gibbs should be killed off and that Tony should take his place. Where does it say that exactly?

Ah there is the other thing I don't like is Tony fans always crying that he is nothing but a clown. I like Tony but don't like Tony fans because they act like he should be the star of the show and if it was up to them they would kill of Gibbs and have Tony be the main character. If they made Tony serious all the time he would just be a young copy of the Gibbs character and the show does not need that.

Well I thought the ticket scene made McGee look bad, and certainly not much of a friend to Tony. I get tired of the poor little victim McGee/meanie pants Tony defense when Tim is a butt. Tim's a grown man - if Tony started to take advantage, McGee could grow a pair and tell him enough already. MW is a great ad libber, but that scene was quite obviously highly orchestrated with one objective in mind. To once again demean Tony as the inferior person who no one actually likes. Ha Ha. In the early days, Tony was funny without the joke ALWAYS being on him. The humor was far more spread around. Now the joke is ALWAYS on Tony. I guess I should be grateful that at least they didn't portray him as incompetent as well.

MCAL while I joke around with my brother I never mock him like Tony mocks McGee. IMO what Tony does at times is on the line of being a bully not a brother. Only time he has been there for McGee was in "Probie" Otherwise he picks on him until he goes so over the line he knows and then feels bad.

@Kevin Actually yes. Yes I would. Friendly manner would suggest we are friends and why would I not do something with a friend. Or if we made a big brother/little brother comparison then it would still be yes.

I still don't get what is wrong here? As long as Tony gets the job done (And like I just said he does. He always does.) then what is wrong with him being comic relief. You guys have to explain better why that is and tell me. When has Tony's jokes ever prevented him or NCIS from catching the bad guys? What's really wrong? And don't give the excuse that it is to make other characters look good. He's been like that since season 1. In fact it was actually worse back then. So tell me when, unless there has been the death of an agent or some one close to him or a person who was close to another agent, has Tony not joked around during the series and has it affected resolutions of the case?

To all the Tony fans mad at Tim for not sharing his ticket insider with Tony why should he? Tim was on the mark. Tony's character would abuse it by always bugging Tim to get tickets for him. Also why should Tim help out Tony? He always mocks him and yes while you say it is in a friendly way it is still very disrespectful. He does not do that with anyone else. If someone mocked you but said it was only in a friendly way would you want to do things with and for them?

This was a decent episode. Much better then last weeks which I thought was the worse of the season. Ducky and Jimmy played off each other real well I thought.

I loved this episode. Great Ducky / Palmer friendship. Love McGee and Tony. In regards to Tony, many of Michael Weatherly commic scenes are ad lib by him and he was encouragd to do so by creator DB and all producers since. He is called on NCIS set the "King of Libs". So it might not be the writers.
