  • A poor opening episode for an otherwise excellent show.

    I don't like the Director Sheppard character, she's the weak link in a great ensemble cast. So the on-going La Grenouille story arc just passes me by. Didn't buy the 'is Tony dead' plot line, seemed thown in to pad out an under-running, thin script. I also didn't like the way we are expected to swallow the fact that Tony was deep undercover all thru his romance with Jeanne (was Scottie Thompson pregnant?). So a) He never used his real surname with her, that would be interesting to check, b) All the falling in love bit was just to get to La Grenouille, I don't believe it for a second, c) All that time she didn't realise he wasn't a lecturer in film studies, no way. Anyway, best bit was when Tony asked Ziva (who looks very tanned) "Have you ever lied to someone you love?". Hmmm is something going to happen there I wonder? Overall a disappointing start to the season.
