  • Tired of "dumbed down" episodes!

    7.5
    Episode was just okay. Is it me or have the episodes been "dumbed down" since about the middle of season 7? Before then, it wasn't always so easy to figure out who the bad guy is. Now, I usually figure it out in the first 15 minutes (sometimes, even less). And again, too much Samantha Ryan!

    amazing. i love the ending with gibbs clenched teeth and getting upset at her becasue i was having that same reaction, quiet yet ready to blow. I woiuld have acted exactly like that Liked how tony told gibbs he smelled of someone that wasn't him. Loved hte bachelor party, very good acting, i actually htought they were drunk. Loved how gibbs pulled ziva off the bench and continued walking, it was like he was 30 or younger picking up his date and lauhg.ing and talking to her. creepy how well he acted that. loved abby's clothes adn when she said she wasn't sone with him, i liked how gibbs gave palmer the nod, to run. Episode was amazing. Gibbs may not like how ryan plays, but he hides behind his work and carpentry and being quiet. She hide behind playing games, after doing it for so log it becomes a part of you i imagine.moreless
  • When A Bug Is Found In Dorneget's Tooth, The Team Goes On Full Force To Arrest The Terrorist Out To Teach The Navy A Lesson.

    I thought this episode was better than "Playing With Fire". Like Ducky said, the plot thickens. It was great to see Jimmy's bachelor party and how the team celebrated it, even though it was a cover mission to catch Dearing. I assume you know he is still out there. As a villain Harper Dearing is better than most of the villains we have seen. He is a real threat and unpredictable. Another good thing was how Dearing confronted Gibbs about his son as he blames them for his death. One final positive note is that they got Vincent Maple. From the minute I saw him, i knew he was hiding something. "Up In Smoke" was an excellent episode from start to finish. The final showdown is next. See you there.moreless
  • Samantha Ryan's character..... just not working for me.

    7.0
    Now I know Jamie Lee Curtis is a very big star, and I like some of the films she's in but her character Samantha Ryan I find she's very irritating, she plays each situation like it's all a game. Now Gibbs has had a large number of relationships some of them I agreed with, but out of all of them Samantha Ryan is a "absolute not" I really think the character was not Gibb's type and she really didn't work for this show.



    however i like the storyline of this show it was great, just please no more Samantha Ryan.moreless
  • A good start

    3.0
    The episode started great, till the moment that....

    They putted JLC again inside it. That woman destroys every episode she is in,

    and when she will be there again the new season, then it is for sure goodbye

    NCIS. And not only for me.

    • Dr. Ryan: Oh, what exactly are you accusing me of, Agent Gibbs?
      Gibbs: I don't know.
      Dr. Ryan: Have you lost your mind?
      Gibbs: I don't know.
      Dr. Ryan: Why do you keep saying that?
      Gibbs: Because I don't know! With everybody else, Doc, I know, but with you... God, I'm trying here!
      Dr. Ryan: Oh, and for an introverted, intuitive feeler like you, this must be intolerable.
      Gibbs: Why do you always have to talk like this?
      Dr. Ryan: Like what?
      Gibbs: Why can't you just be like a regular person?
      Dr. Ryan: Like a person?
      Gibbs: Like a normal person.
      Dr. Ryan: Like a human. This from the man who doesn't talk.

    • Gibbs: How long you know about this?
      Dr. Ryan: Oh, I know about a lot of things, Agent Gibbs. I share them when I think they're relevant.
      Gibbs: Who decides that?
      Dr. Ryan: You are sounding like a broken record.
      Gibbs: I would just like some straight answers to straight questions. Like you to turn it off for once.
      Dr. Ryan: Well, it's, uh... it's not as easy as you make it sound. They may be mind games to you, but my work is no game. Do you turn it off when you come home, Gibbs? I've been in your basement. You don't turn anything off. You marinate in it. You want me to let you in? Then let me in.

    • Abby: Look. I know, with ships blowing up and a crazy terrorist on the loose, that it seems like the worst possible time for a party.
      Palmer: Yes, I couldn't agree more.
      Abby: But if there's one thing that we've learned working around all this death, is that life must go on.

    • Dr. Ryan: Now, you're sure you didn't discuss any classified material in the last two weeks?
      Dorneget: No. Wait. Is that a trick question?
      Gibbs: No, she didn't ask one yet.
      Dorneget: Maybe that's the trick.

    • Dearing: It's important to know thy enemy, don't you think?
      Gibbs: I'm not your enemy.
      Dearing: Says the man who'd certainly kill me if he had the chance.

    • Palmer: Oh, come on. You guys, just give me one hint as to what Abby has planned. It is my bachelor party, okay? I've got a right to know.
      Tony: Sorry. She swore us to secrecy, and she scares me more than you.
