    Season 6 of NCIS starts tonight in its usual 8 p.m. EDT Tuesday timeslot on CBS.

    The gang was disbanded by the new NCIS chief Vance at the end of last season under mysterious circumstance, and it's taken Gibbs the summer to find a link to Vance's actions.

    I can't wait.

    My prediction is that we get 1-2 episodes of Gibbs with his new team, who will be both better and worse than his old. 1 episode for each "missing" old member (Tony on his ship, etc), and then 1-2 episodes re-uniting them all for some reason. I just don't see a House-like situation where the old team is still around, but in a reduced role.

    Interesting set up for the season. Will this be something that is a multi-episode arch over the season or will it be wrapped up quick.

    I won't go into detail in case some have not seen it yet. But it was a decent opening to the season and makes you wonder how far they will take this idea.

    Looks like my prediction about how they will handle the new and old teams is wrong - which is great, because they way they seem to be doing it is quite good.

    As soon as the key card was found in McGhee's replacement's bookpack, it all but cemented that Lee was the mole. It also answered a season-long mystery: How Palmer was pulling in all that monkey business with Lee - she did use him, and used him hard to build up her alibi with a weekly nookie session. I'm really hoping Gibbs lets her go to find a bigger fish upstream.

    I don't follow, but I'm kind of dense. Can you explain that, please?

    Because it was all too apparent (at least to me) that Lee was setting up former FBI agent to be the fall guy in the building next door that she had the access code for one of the doors needed to get further into the building. Seriously, who leaves an access card, wrapped with a piece of paper with a code on it inside a simple bookbag? No mole worth their salt. Plus Palmer made his pronouncement that he ended it with Lee because he felt he was being used.

    I thought the pillow thing made it obvious. They went out of their way to make it clear she wasn't comfortable with her gun.

    It's great to have NCIS back and it was a great season premiere. And, wow, does Jonathan LaPaglia look like his dad or what?

    If you mean Anthony LaPaglia, they're brothers.

    No comments on Ziva's dress?

    Words fail me. [​IMG] For a minute there I was hoping for a spin-off where Ziva works undercover as a singer in a Casablanca like bar where international intrigue is as normal as serving booze and throwing out drunks. [​IMG]

    Incredibly, I can't find a picture of her in the dress anywhere on the net. I can't believe nobody took a screen-grab. I can only assume they've all been too ... busy to post it since then. While we're waiting, here's a pic of Cote de Pablo in a different dress.

    Ah. OK, then. Still don't see that as an obvious plot ploy, but dumber things have certainly happened in real life. (It took 20 years for John Anthony Walker, Jr. to get caught by the FBI, and it only happened then because his ex-wife ratted him out over the alimony?)

    No, I meant Eddie the Australian car dealer. What? Aren't you familiar with how he looks? [​IMG]

    Thanks to Ken and IMDB, I now know more about the LaPaglias than I ever thought I would. Jonathan doesn't really look 39 to me and I'm a bit surprised that there is only a 10 year gap between Anthony and Jonathan.

    And Ziva's dress...

    Glad to see NCIS continues to crush in the ratings - it's nice to have a "safe" show [​IMG]

    Tonight's episode was pretty good all around, even if its purpose was obvious. It was nice to see some "navy stuff" again, as though that last season was great, there was a lot of "oh, make this guy a marine so NCIS can solve it." Hopefully there will be more investigations like the first few seasons, where it really mattered that they were taking place within the framework of the military.

    cheers!

    Is it just me or was Ziva looking extra fine in this episode? [​IMG]

    Can't tell you. That night club scene in the opener overloaded my fine meter. Pegged the needle, really.

    Ziva's reaction to seeing her photos at Tony's locker/space was hilarious.
