Yep, besides Gibbs teleportation act, the dirty clothes thing also raised an eyebrow.

Loved the line by Tony, "So, what did you do this summer?"

NCIS...thumbs up

NCIS/LA...thumbs down: constant chaos, totally improbable HQ, not particularly appealing characters, except Linda Hunt. No better...maybe worse than last season's "pilot" episodes.

It reminds me of the majority of the CBS crime dramas and even though they draw great numbers, I'm not a big fan of any of them with the exception of the real NCIS, I've watched nearly all of them at one time or the other, but over time NCIS is the only one I've continued to watch.

And why isn't it set in San Diego rather than LA? That's a pretty elaborate subordinate office.

I know, it's TV; it isn't supposed to make sense. And most TV execs couldn't find any city in the country on the map, other than NYC, LA, and DC.

It was almost like a pilot episode. Lots of back story for the uninitiated. Interesting way to do that - and not use flashbacks from previous shows.

I figured there was a escape plan, but what actually went down was way better than what I imagined.

Interesting shot of Ziva's expression at the end.

Kudos for the opening (non-LA) episode. Sort of a Star-Wars rescue Princess Leia theme. Puzzled about Gibbs' teleporting-like appearance, too, although of course he used a silenced motor bike. :-). NCIS/LA wasn't too bad either; fresh bad guys to tackle. -- John

While the Gibbs teleportation was bad, no one here is mentioning what happened before that--Gibbs shooting the bad guy. Amazing timing that he shot the bad guy exactly when Tony said, "you remember when I said my boss was a sniper?"

Why would Gibbs wait? As soon as he saw Ziva, he should have shot the bad guy.

Before Tony said that, he told the guy he had "30 seconds to live". I guess the rest was just filler until Gibbs did his thing. Wouldn't want any uncomfortable silences or anything...

EDIT:
One of unplausable thing: Gibbs not only took out the main bad guy, which could happen, since he was near the window, but he then took out the guard that was a foot or two inside the doorway. From Gibb's elevation and distance, he couldn't have even seen the guard's feet. Oh well, it's television, still loved the episode.

No one has mentioned the real glaring error on the show: Abby's missing back tattoo. She used to have a huge cross on her back. It was even in the opening credits two years ago. But at the end of this episode, we see her back when she's hugging Ziva and all that's there is an off-center flower outline...

Couldn't they have let the three stop somewhere long enough to get a shower before they went back to DC?

Now who'd want to see a shower scene with Ziva? (line forms to the right )

If it was a covert op on foreign soil (the uninvited kind) it's not likely. Get in, get out, no stops in between. No tricky questions.

Ziva, you've been held captive all summer by some lovely folks. Forget medical care, visits with the shrinks, going back home to see your father, your other employer, etc....we've got to get you back to your cubicle at NCIS!

When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Well, if you're going to be that way, just remember that the real NCIS wouldn't be executing that type of op in the first place.

They couldn't take the time for a clean-up because of the time it takes to fly that C-130 four engine turbo prop (the one they flew to Israel) from Somalia back to the states (estimate 4000 nautical miles great circle).

Still really enjoyed the ep.

AT least they're not set in LA.

Yeah, I didn't like that either as a sniper he was probably the way they showed it at least a half a mile away or more there was no way in the amount of time showed for him to get there. It would have been better and more realistic to have them come around the corner and have a couple of Special Forces guys standing there.

I chalk this up to the mystique of Gibbs. I think they did that on purpose. Come on Gibbs is everywhere people!

That's the only way you can look at it. Kind of like how Gibbs gets the boats out of his basement, I don't believe that's ever been explained. I believe they've explained that he burns them, but obviously, he wouldn't burn one while it's still in the basement.

I don't remember which episode it was in, but I vaguely remember a character asking that question and the answer was that it was broken up and removed.

she killed her brother in Gibb's garage some seasons back. I think Gibbs found it really strange that she never broke down over it. The only reason for hiding that emotion would be? IF she were acting to win his trust and hiding any hatred of Gibbs because of what her assignment made her do. I dont think he felt he could really trust her until he saw her real emotions over it.

That's not quite it. Gibbs suspected that she had been ORDERED to kill her brother in order to gain NCIS' trust and get her way in. That pissed him off that she could kill her own brother on orders just to gain his 'trust'.

She responded by saying that she had indeed been ordered to kill him for that reason, but the only reason she took the mission was to prove his innocence. She didn't really believe he was a traitor. Once she realized he was INDEED a traitor, she killed him, but only to save Gibb's life.

He was ok with that explanation.

I'm no expert....so your mileage may vary
