WHAT? The series is *cancelled*?
Man that's a huge disappointment. I was getting into it in a big way too. It had lots of potential for more stories. Guess the numbers didn't add up - which is too bad. Had the producers given it a bit more time I'm confident it would have picked up more viewers.
@gatorgal: Vance gave Ziva the unofficial "glance of approval" but never stated anything in so many words. So he has plausible deniability.
@MCAL: I think you're right. Once Bodnar attacked, Ziva was legally in defence mode. TBTB can guess and extrapolate motives 'till the cows come home (he attacked first because he felt threatened by Ziva holding the gun to him without stating he was under arrest; or she didn't have time to state her business before he physically attacked her, etc. etc.) At any rate, there's nothing there for DHS or anyone else hang their hat on. Ziva seems free and clear despite the fact she has a motive for killing him.
I just couldn't get into it. And I really tried. So - this isn't that much of a surprise. I really like Matthew Perry and would have loved to see his series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" go through a few seasons. That was some amazing stuff. "Go On" - not so much. Felt too plastic. (Best way I can explain it.)
It's always a heartbreak when such compelling drama gets the axe. Love or hate the characters - the writers, actors and directors had the ability to keep viewers glued to the stories each week. Sad to see them go.
I really really loved Howard's (Simon's) impersonation of Christopher Walken. He pretty much nailed it with that one. Sheldon's giddy joy over all of the impersonations was so great to see too.
den48: I don't see any comments by you on who may return under either this review or under the "Who May Return" post. Did you post it under a different name?
@Sis, for what it's worth - I think your theory is bang on the money.
@Josh: Camaro. Got it. Thanks!
Just for kicks: I think a word becomes a word when one person utters it and another person understands it. Anyway, just a thought. Carry on. : )
Fascinating news. Criminal Minds starting losing control over the narrative when real-life issues entered the arena, beginning (in my opinion) when they originally cut A.J. Cook. These are all truly talented people working on an established popular show. They should probably do what the cast of "Friends" did and bargain as a team with management. And although Jeanne Tripplehorn hasn't grown on me yet, I think she has what it takes to complete the team. She'll never be a Prentiss nor will she take her place but then she wasn't written to be.
