Is it that I’m too tired, because I can’t quite work out why the latest NCIS episode was called Deliverance? Makes me think of the film with the same title, except I don’t believe they are similar at all. It was more digging into Gibbs’ past, which is why Mike Franks turned up again. I think it’s good for the ‘boss’ to have his old boss there to restore the balance.
Tried to follow the reasoning of one fan over at Special Ops over the timings of the past, which the writers had come up with for the plot, but it doesn’t make sense to me. It doesn’t matter, as long as you don’t think about it. Some fans also felt it was ‘too Gibbs centred’, again. I don’t see that you can complain about the main character being the main character, even if you prefer DiNozzo. Swings and roundabouts.
On a different note, I was pleased to find that Sara Paretsky seems to be a fan of NCIS, too. She’s just introduced Abby and McGee in her online Warshawski story. I knew there was a reason I like her.
