‘I would be happy to leave’ says M A Hart, our dreadful lawyer from a few episodes ago. I wish she would. There are still no sparks, so we’re either still talking bad acting, or a lack of romantic intention. If we’re to believe Gibbs will continue to be Gibbsy, then he’s not going anywhere.
One day I really will be so sad that I sit and take notes of good lines all through every episode, because there are some great ones, nicely scattered about. You hear them, and immediately forget them again, because there’s more action. Vance’s ‘someone’s got a serious Greyhound fetish’ is one example.
Who’d have thought McGee would be ready to stand up to the boss and tell Gibbs ‘it’s an order I’m disobeying’. And Gibbs didn’t even look annoyed. Knowing him, it’s what he expected our ever more handsome nerd to say. I’m not sure what it is. Is it McGee’s hair?
It’s not just the tuxedo, or the black tie, if we’re being British about it. There was noise about McGee’s attire on Special Ops, and I’m tempted to agree. If I could only have got a good screen grab he’d make it to next year’s calendar at Witch Towers.
Speaking of clothes, Abby’s yellow outfit looked good enough to eat. Never mind that it was to protect her from radiation. As Abby says to McGee, it’s ‘way to cool to take off’. Well, it’s all right for someone who can avoid looking like a teletubby.
As for online weddings, or dancing competitions, it makes you wonder if they have an army of people just writing down silly ideas when they encounter things in ‘real life’, with a view to get it out and dust it off one day and put it in an episode. Can I send in my contributions?
Finally, Gibbs, don’t do it! Remember Doppelgänger. It is so not a good idea.
