That's a fascinating analysis, Liz. Your theory makes a lot of sense too. I can't speak for other guys but I like Bishop just because of who she is. If I were Gibbs I'd put her through a boot camp though - there can't be anything worse than having a team member who through inexperience or timidity won't be able to have your back when there's danger afoot. Boot camp would toughen her up without changing her character all that much.
I'd really like to know more about why you've concluded that she can't play the role. Having taken many acting classes and having played a number of roles myself, I came to the opposite conclusion to you: I think she's a fine actress and plays the part well. I've never yet noticed that she's "acting" the part instead of inhabiting it, for one thing. Actors act on what's on the page and play it according to the director. So if the role is wrong, I don't see the blame being placed at Emily's feet. P.S. I also disagree that the role is wrong.
Hi everyone. Once again, our NCIS Round Table for this episode is up. Join us over there and chime in with your thoughts. http://www.tvfanatic.com/2015/...
Yup. I tried every combo I could think of, including the truncated version - no luck. It's really weird. Anyway, I see the screen caps you provided, so I'll stop trying to figure it out. Thanks very much!
Thanks Lee. Unfortunately, I'm getting this message. Probably I need to be a member of a group or something to see it. Weird.
I've been searching but can't find that Facebook page anywhere. Found the U.S. Marine Corps page but nothing else. Any chance you could provide a link?
I for one like everything you said - especially the second last line. It's all any of us really have, ultimately. By the way, try and get your mind around 15.84 million viewers. No matter how much of a drop that represents, that's an amazing number of people tuning in to watch this show. One more thing: I wonder why they got to their season arc so quickly this year. Something tells me there's a plan afoot for the last few episodes. Some major change in the wind perhaps. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
Really Jiesheng? The only factor in those numbers is Bishop? It has nothing to do with the move away from cable TV and onto online programming? The only real thing I take from your comment is that *in your opinion* Bishop doesn't fit in. In my opinion she does, and always has. She's different from Ziva in that she's not a crap-kicker. She's entirely different. I think Emily Wickersham is brilliant and she's a good actor. And I don't think her presence has detracted from the show at all. Again though, just like you, my observations are only opinion and are not based upon empirical evidence.
Agreed. There's not much to like about the man. He even admits to using his condition to get away with stuff you and I could not. The thing is: we've all known people like this in real life. Manipulating bastards who seem to thrive on making others miserable. The bottom line is that there's nothing you can do about them. Nothing - except cut them out of your life. Hotch isn't willing to do that as it would deprive Jack of his grandfather. Man those scenes were all too real for me.
I agree with you on the family stuff. I think maybe that what made the episode so compelling is that so many of us can relate to the idea of that one family member who creates nothing but drama and heartache for us. I agree too - the case of the week was fairly intricate. You pretty much had to pay attention to all the names of the family members in order to make sense of it.
