Oh, and as to Tony and Ziva, I do think there is chemistry there, but it has been worn thin by time and neglect. I just hope that they do something to either get it out of the way and off the table, or consumate the relationship so that Ziva and Tony stop dancing around the issue.I also wanted to say that I LOVED the fact that McGee works as a Big Brother to that nerdy kid who goggled and oggled Ziva. I agree with the person who said that NCIS doesn't win enough awards, considering they're the number one rated show on TV. The acting on the show is so flawless, I don't understand it myself, they should be floating in a sea of Emmys.
I loved that this was a McGee-centric episode, I only wish that McGee's dad had gotten more of a stern talking to by other members of the team and by Vance, who should have said more to his jerk father about McGee not being a paper pusher at all (he does as much as possible electronically, anyway). I also wish Abby would have had a shot at McGee's dad, because she has a great way of dealing with bullies.Plus, she loves Tim, and I think she could convince his dad that he's really a smart, important part of the NCIS team. And I wonder, like the reviewer, WHY all the NCIS team members have to have bad fathers? Does this indicate that the main writer or creator of NCIS has a disapproving, cold father? I happen to know some guys whose dad is career military and he's a great father, warm, caring and he approves of their career paths and has been there for them since they were small in every way possible.
I was LOVING the Magnum PI references and music at the end, hilarious! And of course I always love the car arguments that are a hallmark of the Danno/Steve bromance...and I adore that Danno has names for the various faces that Steve makes! Aneurysm Face, "I Know Everything" face, etc. LOVE it *and it is so true that the man makes the same faces all the time*As far as Catherine goes, yes, they are being rather sexist having her be in skimpy outfits all the time, but they are doing it for the same reason that they have Alex O take off his shirt, because both actors are EYE CANDY and they give viewers a thrill. Alex certainly gets my motor running with his hot body and gorgeous face. But then, I think Chin and Danno are pretty hot, too. I also found the ep confusing, but with H5O, you just have to go with it.
BTW, The Wild Rover is a great song, and the lyrics are pretty apropo..."And it's no, nay, never, no nay never no more, and I'll play the wild rover, no never, no more."
I totally agree with the reviewer...this was an AWESOME episode, and I gotta agree with the Seamus Dever as a total HOTTIE with the cool haircut and the bad-ass attitude...yummmmmmmm. I kept marveling at how intensely blue his eyes were, and how even his posture changed when he became Fenton. He had "swagger" and steel in his whole body. And I loved that scene at the end where he called on all his friends and co workers to come out and help him, and Castle was all like "I forgot my vest" LOL! That was such a "cowardly lion" moment, and yet so perfect for his character. I can hardly wait for the 100th episode. This show is just the best, always full of great stories, laughter and tears. Long may it reign on TV!
I am with TV!Garth in his summation of this incredible ep! Yes, you are right, Kerry Washington rocks this role, and she manages to still be a great ensemble actress amid all the other actors on Scandal. Great,emotional scenes in this one, and I echo all the others who said that Jake smiling at himself on camera was just CREEPY as all get out! I think Mellie was also in the running for creep of the week as she used her baby to get in to see her husband, and you could tell she was distressed when he grabbed the baby and shut the door in her face...good for the Prez!Anyway, I also adore Harrison and I was hoping that David would become a gladiator, too, but I think his relationship with Abby would make that a problem. I am also glad to see Huck teaching Quinn.
BTW, I love Glee, I really do, but sometimes they drop the ball, as they did with Brody and STDs. Still, I am glad that Rachel got rid of him, and I am really glad that Santana is back! She's awesome, and I loved "Cold Hearted Snake" from last week! I also agree that if the Glee club were to never sing songs from musical artists with no morals and lots of drugs and abuse issues, they'd never sing a note. There are just too many musicians and musical groups who have lead singers or musicians on drugs or alcohol or they've got anger issues and beat women up, or they're pedophiles, like Pete Townsend of The Who.They have to be able to separate the song from the sordid life of the singer.
GLEE!! had it right about what has been bothering me about the whole Brody/Rachel relationship. Because he's a prostitute, that means that he's bringing home every virus/bacteria from every woman or man he's having sex with to Rachel, and until recently, she didn't know that. She could have gotten HPV from him, and could have ovarian or cervical cancer and not even know it! Women don't often present with symptoms of various STDs until it is too late, and the same thing goes for certain cancers, like ovarian cancer, that don't have any real symptoms until they are in stage 4 and almost impossible to treat. There are also strains of drug-resistant gonorreha and syphillus out there, so I personally think that Finn should have hit Brody harder for being such a d-bag, and I think Rachel needs to get tested for STDs ASAP! They need to show this on Glee as the consequences of unprotected sex with multiple partners.
I agree with the reviewer, too many questions about the things revealed in this ep...like did Laurels sister really make it out of the boat wreak and is on one of those tiny islands, living without her memory and thriving? I think that they're going to end up finding out that she's become the girlfriend of one of the bad guys on the Island that Ollie lived on. She will have lost her memory and will be living with this guy like her former life didn't exist. I enjoyed seeing Alex Kingston playing the mum in this ep, especially across from the handsome Paul Blackstone as Laurels father. I am also glad that Tommy and Ollie made up. I am a bit worried about Speedy's relationship with the thief...I have a feeling, though there's great chemistry there, that he is going to get her into more trouble than he's worth.
Oh, and I KNEW that Stevie had eaten his parents the moment he answered the door to the family home. I also figured out that the arm was probably someone like a pizza delivery guy, because Stevie has had enough time alone to eat through his family and still be hungry. I am glad that Josh helped him, but now I am thinking that Sally will go back to being a ghost soon, because she won't be able to stop her decay without eating her roommates or someone else, and she doesn't want her soul to be enslaved or eaten by the witch, either, but she will probably sacrifice herself for the sake of her roommates. What I do not understand is why she hasn't gone back to the Linda Lavin witch and asked her why she didn't tell them that they would be decaying if they didn't eat live flesh. Was that part of the bargain that Sally made in order to be allowed to be "seen" by people she'd known before she died? If so, the witch should have said something about becoming a zombie and rotting.
