  • Good episode

    A good episode, it's been a long time since I have been surprised by the killer. At first, I thought that was the daughter, then, when they talked about colone I thought "Ha! The guy!" and then I thought "Or maybe the Asian woman?" But I got surprised at the end and that's what I like in this king of tv show.

    I wish they would develop Abby's character and make it "grow up" a little, I love her style but she acts the same way than in season 1 so it would be great to make her gain in maturity.

  • ncis/ncis los angeles (?) criminal minds.....

    I thought this was a site where i could watch full episodes. I'm getting nothing but pictures. could someone let me know if this is the right site or not. thank you :)
  • Brilliant one!

    This was a great episode in two ways - firstly the case was very interesting. I wouldn't say it was amazing, but it was definitely entertaining and fun to watch, which wasn't the case with many episodes last season. So a good start!

    I also liked the episode because of the continuation of Abby's storyline with her brother. I have been hoping for this story to develop ever since it came about last season, and it finally actually happened today - I think it is great that they waited until after the events of the Harper Dearing saga to introduce the pair, and it is definitely a great way to work it into the storyline.

    My favourite thing was Abby's comment about hugging being in her blood and family! That was gold! Kep it up, NCIS!moreless
  • Mediocre episode

    There were some things I liked, some things I didn't. The episode wasn't "bottom-of-the-barrel" bad, but I just thought it was "meh"... nothing to write home about.

    Here's my blog entry about it...
  • Just loved it

    Abby's always been one of my favourite characters - but then again, I love of all of them. It was good to watch the father-daughter thing going on between Abs and Gibbs, especially in the end when she brought her brother Kyle to meet Gibbs. Within the case itself, I actually found the killer to be surprising. Also enjoyed the addition of the English therapist, kind of shook the seriousness of everything going on. An endearing episode.moreless
