  • All episodes with Tony's dad are lame!

    6.0
    I know I'm probably in the minority here. I really dislike every episode Tony Sr. appears. Most likely, it's because I don't like the actor who plays him, but I think it's also how they have Tony act whenever his father appears. About the only thing I liked about the episode was McGee and Tony wrestling over the evidence Tony wanted to look at!
  • BAD episode

    1.0
    How bad it can be. The dad of Dinozzo is under suspect and his son brakes every possible rule, without any punishment. It is really the time now that NCIS continues without the DiNozzo clan. It would make the show much more better!!!!
  • Awful

    1.0
    Look at all the reviews , im probalby the only one who thinks the show has took a turn for the worst. The dad of an investigator as suspect............. Seriously?? Since this season writing has been off , unbelievable and just childish. I how they get their game back very fast.
  • Finally an episode up to scratch!

    I was very hppy about this episode after a couple of below par episodes throughout the course of this season. This episode, however, was one of the best of the season.Anthony DiNozzo Sr. episodes have always been exciting to watch, and this one was no exception!



    I'm not sure if I prefer this episode over the other two in which Senior came to town, but they have all been great episodes! I do hope we see him again this season! And I hope the rest of this season is as good as this one, if not better! Keep it up, guys!moreless
  • Father and Son time again - he can still get into trouble and the other still has the ability to get him out...

    9.0
    You know -a real quality of NCIS is that it works on so many levels - good scripts, good actors and good support!

    The choice of Robert Wagner as Tony's Dad just simply "works" as do so many of the other interactions and nuances involved in the show... the casting crew have done a teriffic job in selecting a credible and realistc "character" for the role.

    "Hats off" to the accomplished actor who carries off the role with pinache - and the really great thing is that it dosn't overshadow the other cast members in thier "core roles".

    Not the most "smashing pumpkins plot" but great TV entertainment!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • GOOF: DiNozzo, Sr. refers to a 1968 bottle of Chateau la Clare bordeaux as possibly being worth "a fortune". Chateau La Clare, however, was not established until 1989, with the first vintage being in 2001. Plus, the bottle in Abby's lab was a "Chateau Auclair", which is not a Bordeaux winery. The bottle also carries a bar code label -- however, bar codes were not in use for wine production in 1968.
