    This weeks episode, Murder 2.0 was awesome. It featured the Numa Numa Music Video from Gary Brulsma ... Gibbs was even smiling when McGee popped it on the television monitors. It was hilarious.

    This whole season has been very good. Last night's episode was one of the creepiest NCIS shows ever. It was almost CSI like in tone, but it maintained the NCIS "heart."

    Wow, not much discussion of what I consider to be a very good season of one of my favorite shows. And a show that continues to do very well in the ratings. I wonder why...

    Probably my favorite show on TV.

    Please tell me someone has a video of Tony's itchy ear interrogation. That had me rolling!

    This latest ep would of had to have been for me the weakest episode of this season. Hopefully this was not the finale for this season.

    Well, we were quite a number of weeks behind and just caught up. I thought the resolution to the mole storyline worked well. Glad to see that Gibbs' gut was right there.

    As far as the Christmas episode, I thought it was a fun one. I hadn't seen Peter Coyote for a while, so it was good to see him there.

    Really enoyed this week's episode -- it was nice to see Tony taking the reins again, and equally nice to see "agent-mode" Gibbs, instead of "boss-mode." I thought it was hilarious that Tony has his own "Ducky," and that it's Palmer [​IMG]

    Tony's camp fire sit-down was pretty funny.

    We finally got around to watch the 1/13 episode "Broken Bird." Strangely enough, my family was not impressed when I pointed out that Mr. Pain was first played by Mark Sheppard, and then when aged was played by Mark's father - William Morgan Sheppard. It was a nice touch.

    Re: The Season Finale

    Great episode. Just hoping the team doesn't lose another female team member to violence.

    Tony and the Mossad Director was a call-back to A Few Good Men. Gibbs was right, Tony CAN handle himself.

    McGhee and the lame hard drive joke - come on, how many of us have run a joke into the ground because we thought it was funny.

    Nice to see Arnold V (the Mummy and Chuck's nemesis) on the scene!

    That's exactly what I thought when I saw that scene. Director David got the full "did you order the code red?!" treatment.

    Once again, NCIS delivers a solid episode, with an interesting story, great performances all around, and a cliffhanger that lets the audience know what the first few episodes of next season will be about (rescuing Ziva, I assume), while also leaving them wondering a bit (will Ziva die?).

    With episodes like this, it's easy to see why it's one of the top shows on all of TV. However, there isn't much to "discuss" really, so these threads tend to be woefully short. "Oh well," I say, because I like to have safe shows like this (and Numb3rs and The Unit, as I mentioned in The Unit thread)--they show that not every show needs to be a complete mystery like BSG or LOST (two shows I absolutely love) to get your heart racing. I know my heart was beating a little faster during the interrogation scene.

    I also like being able to watch a great show, confident in knowing that it won't be cancelled [​IMG]

    Great season of NCIS, and I'll be adding the DVDs (can we please have these in BD now?) when the season comes out this fall/winter.

    cheers!

    Overall, I thought it was a very good season, but I wasn't too enamored with the finale. Actually, I think the season turned for me with the spin-off episodes. It disrupted the natural flow of the series and I don't think it ever recovered.

    I don't know what I think of the spin-off. I like NCIS enough that I'd think I might enjoy a similar, but different take on the concept. That said I really didn't like spin-off episodes very much. It was also strange to leave us with O'Donnell's character bullet ridden with no resolution until the show gets picked up.


    It would be nice if the BDs were an option though it isn't a huge deal for me. I can loan the DVDs to others. The seasons are already priced pretty high so they would probably be a bunch on BD. And NCIS is not one of the best looking HD show although it has gotten noticeably better. Who am I kidding, I'd by the BDs. [​IMG]

    Also NCIS is run regularly on USA and SPIKE in HD and looks very good.
