Well thank you! : ) It wasn't clear to me where that was - must have missed it in the dialogue. Thanks again!

Thanks for your thoughts on this, Michael. Yes, you couldn't find a more happier reviewer than me with this episode, specifically because of the direction they chose for Tony. They've finally dropped the stumbling clown dynamic (which went out the door near the end of last season) and we're seeing more of the guy we know Tony to be. One of the questions for this week's Round Table is: should Tony have his own team? Be sure to weigh in on that one once it's published (likely later today or tomorrow at the latest).

Sorry, no. I don't have any inside scoop - so I'll be watching the episode next week closely too. That said, I do have an interview with one of the cast members coming up - I doubt they can or will answer the question, but I might just ask anyway. ; )

That's what I meant by the phrase "ensure an episode flows". You can't be worried about crossing every "t" to make it authentic. Having spent some time in Paris, I agree that many have a passing knowledge of English - but that it also isn't used by everyone you meet. No matter. Such details can be overlooked gladly - the episode itself was brilliant.

Wolfshades

Yeah, I had to wonder about that too. In fact, I had to go look up her name to make sure I spelt it correctly. Ah well - the sacrifices you often have to make to ensure an episode flows, I suppose. Like having every single French person speaking English right off the bat. ("Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain")

Thanks for your note, BLG. Glad you're enjoying these discussions. And yes, I can't get over how great those photographs were.

NCIS Review: Emphatic Angels

While I agree with you about the need for more socialization on the plight of vets, in fact some TV shows have done an admiral job of it. In particular, Joe Mantegna has convinced the writers of Criminal Minds to tackle it more than once.

NCIS Review: Emphatic Angels

Thanks, Rich. I wrote "emphatic" and meant what I wrote: I was thinking about the various people helping each other, but especially Abby who emphatically meant to help the homeless girl, regardless of whether she wanted help or not. She helped her emphatically, forcefully, with full intent.

NCIS Review: Emphatic Angels

Yes, the clinic director seemed so obvious, right from the get-go. Mild-mannered, busy, and the focus was completely on him for the whole scene. It's almost formulaic lately: the camera gives us a hard focus on a character that seems inconsequential. And there's your suspect. I agree with you about the opportunity for a PSA.

You're right on when you say that Stan has cracked. He just doesn't know it yet. For a while now he's been flirting with the American way of life, and loving it, as we saw with the new car episode. Up until now, killing others for the sake of the cause hasn't been that big of an issue, but suddenly it's becoming a really big deal for him. The more deaths occur because of him, the more despairing he seems to get. And now he's angry and dangerous and perhaps a little out of control. What agent in their right mind would risk exposing himself as he did when he visited the pastor? As soon as he stepped into the man's office, his facade was down, and the pastor could easily see he is a dangerous man. I loved this episode, as dark as it was, and can't wait to see what happens next.
