NCIS – Scope

Gibbs

OK, it was touching, just like someone on social media said this morning. NCIS episode no. 300 needed that little bit extra, without being excessively sentimental.

Focusing on Gibbs and snipers, daughters and dead wives could easily have backfired, but they kept their heads above water. And they did so while supporting MusiCorps, which seems to be a real charity, doing good work.

Only the other day I pondered why Gibbs sleeps on the sofa just inside his front door, and not in a bed like so many of us do. And Delilah has clearly got over McGee talking work at dinner a few weeks ago. A Valentine’s gift from Di Nozzo Sr to Di Nozzo Jr? Naturally. And thank god that therapist is married! I’m guessing they needed to settle our concerns.

But why are men so stupid over war wounds?

Even Abby’s ridiculous Caf-Pow novelty failed to make her look silly, and actually worked as it was meant to. Humour without idiocy.

Everyone got to be in on the action, which is only fair for a 300th, even when some of them haven’t been there that long. Apart from the sniper aspect, the plot managed to steer clear of too much team coincidences, while also being military enough, almost like in the early days.

I can barely believe I’ve watched all 300! Some of them embarrassingly many times. Here’s to – I don’t know – the next 30?

    Thanks so much for your review. Gibbs is looking like Gibbs again – glad he’s back in bed – wish I could be there (to hold his hand). Plot of 300th okay, but not as all out enjoyable for me as episode ‘Life before his eyes’. 200th (?) Can’t believe we’ve come this far.

  2. I didn’t actually like the 200th so much.

    As for handholding in bed, it’s what you use your imagination for. ; )
