I have been watching every episode of NCIS, and it has been my favotite show.
However the introduction of Bishop-Barbie is a huge mistake. In a serious issue of a possible epidemic she acts the same as she has been sitting on the floor at the NSA office when we saw her first.
She disturbs the fluency of the show by the producers trying to promote her presence artificially. Could this be the reason that in Season 11 not a single episode scored over "9" and several scored below "8" ?
I hope that the producers take this fact into serious consideration and find a more suitable agent to replace Bishop-Barbie. The alternative is unthinkable-the show will disappear!
The diversion of Vance's father-in-law was heartwarming and the collaboration of Abbpe and the CDC-lady was very interesting. I rate this showw 1 due to the unpleasant presence of Bishop-Barbie and her slured manar of speech.
I haven't seen the old NCIS lately. The plots isn't as good as previous seasons. Is this because of the "new addition"? Not that I'm (totally) against Ziva's replacement but Bishop seems to be out of her element (for all that we've seen so far) and it seems like she's "infecting" the others. And that is so not acceptable. The writers really need to come up with something (extremely) good really fast because I'm starting to dislike this show.
i would like to see music credits. some episodes had really poignant pieces of music but they were not credited. and i am not talking the 1/10 of a second at the end.
also: amateur mistakes: McCraw appeared in last week's episode and was wrongly credited in THIS episode without appearing. Carol was played by Meredith EATON!!! this site dutifully copied the mistake. does anyone proofread these things??
i think bishop will eventually blend in, although i have to say she has not (yet) ziva's charisma.
This and the last two episodes were so poorly written that all the inhabitants were out of character. Why would Abbey interrupt an emergent investigation to lecture Jimmy on the morals of Christmas? I thought she would break into a song & dance routine. Gibbs as we knew him would never inquire as to Vances' emotional health. Denozzo would never have gotten away with calling Gibbs Ebenezer. Who cares what Bishop thinks or does, she brings nothing to the team but strange work habits. Are there none of the old writers left who have actually seen this show?
Living in Germany is sometimes hard, I have to wait one day longer to watch the new episodes, but this one was quite great!!!
Liked the plot, and Bishop, too. She fits the cast, even if I prefere Kate as team member, and loved Jenny as Director, hate Vance! Hes just boring and every storyline including him doesnt really make it...
NCIS says goodbye to 2013 (and what a year it's been) with a phenomenal episode. Everything about the episode was perfect, and it was truly a battle to save Christmas!
Very much loving Bishop personally. I particularly love her relationship with Gibbs - it feels like almost a father/daughter dynamic is developing and in time will probably be more pronounced. Loved the scene of her handing over some cake at the end. Very cute!
Interesting side story with Jimmy. I liked it, and I think it's getting interesting! Vance's side story was OK too.
Overall, I thought the episode was a great way to say goodbye to the 2013 and bring in the new year. 2013 has been a turbulent year at NCIS, but it ended with style! Great work!
This is the most original episode we have seen a long time! The child illness was emotional and written beautifully. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The other plot line with Vance was also very well written. I love the theme of forgiveness and faith through the episode. And Abby getting after Palmer? Great!!
