Maybe you would be kind enough to show me where I posted anything at all negative about Ziva.

The only question I have tonight - since this is the second time Frank has openly wondered about resigning - is: who does he have in mind for his replacement?

Yeah I saw that too. It seemed like the writers had to give her a reason for her behavior so they latched onto the easiest thing possible: childhood abuse. Like an afterthought, with no consideration given to an actual trigger point. Ah well, I was too engrossed in the rest of the story to be too bothered by it. If the story had droned on in boredom like last week's, I would have been all over it.

Still doesn't satisfy the legal definition of murder.

How is a miscarriage murder?

Not quite true. In one of his interviews, Joe Mantegna joked that the real FBI were envious of the plane that the BAU uses. In real life, they don't have one, and have to get around like everyone else.

My pleasure!

Probably as many as they want. It's a tried and true fairly formulaic show that's remained popular. The only thing I can see that would change it would be one of the actors wanting out. Which is why so many of us pay close attention to what happens at their contract times.

First off, I'm not outraged by the hatred toward Bishop - if you'll look back at the Round Table it wasn't me who brought it up. I'm more amused by it than anything. And, I share David's views on it. Secondly, this is the first year I've gotten into the comment section as much as I have. I didn't say much about anything the previous two years, as I was just getting my feet wet with the reviews and things. Third: even if I had, the voluminous hatred toward Bishop is way over the top compared to the criticisms of Ziva. Or at least, that's how I remember it. I don't recall people criticizing Ziva for her damned eyebrows, for instance, the way Bishop's been criticized. Nor do I recall Cote de Pablo's acting chops being criticized at all, the way Wickersham's has been. The amount and 360 degree approach of criticisms and outright hatred of Bishop is on a scale far beyond any thing Cote/Ziva ever experienced. It's been mean and catty. It's impossible for me to compare the two. Ziva/Cote was good for the show. If there's criticism to be made of her, it would have to fall into the writing - and not the actor herself. Same goes for Wickersham/Bishop. Although to-date, I don't find anything wrong or missing the mark with her at all. And while mine is just one opinion, like anyone else's here, I do like to point out from time to time that I've had experience as an actor myself, so know a little bit about what goes into the making of a good actor. I think once the writers give Wickersham a dramatic moment, people may then see what I'm seeing now: an actor who has paid her dues and was well-cast. But I'm not holding my breath: the haters will ever be out there, ready to pick her apart.

Wishful thinking, sorry to say. :) However.....if every considered thinker in the comment sections made a pact to ignore every mean-spirited post, how long do you think they would last? (Answering my own question here: probably wouldn't make a difference, since there are outright trolls on both sides of the fence) My only hope now is that the writers of NCIS never mention Ziva's name ever ever EVER again. That would then leave the Bishop haters (the venomous ones, not the ones who merely dislike her). But it's far easier to ignore them, I think.
