  • Horrible!

    While I liked the interaction between Ducky and Palmer, I thought the episode fell flat. The storyline was just too unbelievable. And I found it hard to believe it took so long for the others to even realize they were missing. The acting was great, but the very poor writing greatly overshadowed the performances.
  • Spectacular!

    This was a really interesting episode wit h some superb scenes, especially involving Ducky and Jimmy. The storyline was great. The beginning was OK, but the episode got somuch better as it carried on. It was subliem!



    There were some truly amazing scenes in that little hut place. The bad guys were interesting,a nd the plan to escape was superb!



    I thorouhgly enjoyed this and will definitely be watching it again!

    This was an enjoyable episode and I am glad to see that the episode revolved around Ducky and Palmer who haven't been left out Both of them work together to escape their captors who was holding them hostage while they did the autopsy I bet their captors never wished they had bothered with Ducky and Palmer because they did a lot more damage to them and the two of them had a good partnership.

    This is w/out a doubt the BEST Physiochemistry class I've ever attended! Demonstrating a uniquely vivid, acute & succinct illustration of the most flagrant USE of a decaying corpse, an emphatic "Accolades" to the 'imaginative-brains' behind this episode.

    Honorable Mention: The value & power behind cardio-rehab on an authentic trellis of anatomical physiology!

    Thanks for all the work that goes into the ongoing development of art!
  • Good stuff

    I particularly enjoyed this episode.



    This is a slight change of styles that we haven't seen before from the writers.

    Very impressive that after 10 years this show has the depth to entertain at this level.

    Just a credit to the great cast and crew of NCIS!

    After the lacklustre last couple of episodes (let's face it, the writers were on a hiding after Shabat Shalom & Shiva), this was a much needed step up.



    Also, giving the episode over to Ducky and Jimmy was inspired, showing the better than might be expected relationship between the two.



    There was much easy interpersonal banter between the two in the van, showing respect for the senior man from Jimmy and acceptance of the younger man's abitities from the Duckster.



    Given that we always tend to expect our "Heroes" to be just that, when Jimmy stepped up to blow the bad guy away, terrified or not and save Ducky, I almost cheered out loud.



    It was a great moment, expertly portrayed, showing fear and resolution at the same time. Basically just an ordinary "Joe" doing what was needed, when it was needed.



    I also thought it was pretty funny when the bad guy got up after Jimmy emptied an entire clip at him (shades of Arnie in the Terminator) and the look of terror on Jimmy's face.



    If I have one VERY minor gripe about the relationship between Ducky & Jimmy, it's that I wish Ducky had asked Jimmy to use his nickname after the event, even if only in private. Let's face it, he earned it with his steadfast support of the older man.



    Writers, that's more like it. More of the same, please!



    The rest of the team played out their roles as solidly as ever and all in all, this was a very satisfying episode.
  • wonderful episode

    Loved this episode. It was great seeing Ducky and Jimmy outsmart those thugs. Great watching Ducky use Gibbs rules to lead the rest of the team to them and outstanding writing from Mr. it when they emptied the contents of the guys stomach and freaked the thugs out - very funny. Loved Jimmy shooting that guy and how scared he was - greating acting Mr. Palmer. This was a very entertaining episode to watch. Keep up the great work NCIS.

    Glad to know that Ducky and Palmer can defend themselves. It's good to see once in a while that other members of the team can lead the show and catch the bad guys.
