I agree that it is poor bartending to server your customer a drink with a frozen eyeball in it.

Also...

Am I the only one thinking that CIRay is going to turn out to be the serial killer?

I liked him on "Without a Trace"... but can't think of a reason to cast him as Ziva's boyfriend right now unless he is involved in a larger story.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Is it just me, or has anybody else noticed the Cote appears to be much "puffier" in the face now than in earlier seasons? If you record the show, compare the opening montage (still frame her shots) and compare the then and now. Just an observation.

I have noticed she looks different... but then so do all the others really. McCallum (Duckie) looks more similar to season one since he was older to start with... but pretty much everyone looks different.

Honestly, I've always found Cote more distracting being cast as an Israeli when she really doesn't look Israeli... and you can usually hear a South American accent creeping through her dialog.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

CI RAY should be the killer! too suspicious IMO... (he had the means to be on all those countries)... also another incentive to bring Tony and Ziva closer, also hoping that CI RAY and EJ are lovers and get caught by them..

I was thinking that because of the usual NCIS practice to have the perp around before they figure out things enough to nail him/her. That would really end him and Ziva and if Tony listens to Gibbs then they're both single again.

Just noticed that DrLar said sort of the same thing. Although, I never thought about him cheating on Ziva.

Ok, to whom did the eye belong? I like how they've intertwined the investigation of EJs team and new crimes for the regulars. Are they gearing up for another spin-off or testing the waters?

Yeah that's weird about the eye, I'm sure they have a list of who has access to MTAC, the list should be pretty short.

If it was someone that used to work there a long time ago, shouldn't they deny access once he left the NCIS unit?

Don't forget...

They did a show a couple of seasons ago about those two CIA girls (one of whom was killed) who were CIA agents that had their eyes granted access for all security systems everywhere to help in their undercover work.

So one girl was killed... but the other was alive... and you would think that they would have replaced the dead one with a new operative.

Since NCIS is a smart show... I'm wondering if this will be a tie-in to that older episode and have the eye belong to someone like that who has an all-access eyeball.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

'NCIS' Co-Star Cote De Pablo Stays Put With New Two-Year Deal
By Nellie Andreeva, Deadline.com - April 27th, 2011

EXCLUSIVE: This is the news NCIS fans have been waiting for. After lengthy negotiations, NCIS co-star Cote de Pablo just closed a new two-year deal with series producer CBS TV Studios to continue on the flagship CBS drama. She was the last NCIS cast member without a deal, meaning that the entire cast of the show is now locked in for next fall.I hear de Pablo is getting a significant salary bump to about $120,000 per episode, which puts her on par with the show's other female cast member, Pauley Perrette. She is also getting a sizable cash bonus.

Because de Pablo joined NCIS in Season 3, her contract experation dates are on a different schedule than fellow NCIS co-stars Sean Murray, Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette and David McCallum, who all re-upped last year after talks dragged well into the summer. Star Mark Harmon signed a new two-year deal in February.

Behind-the camera, CBS Studios last week signed 3-year deals with NCIS executive producers Shane Brennan and Gary Glasberg, with Glasberg set to take over for Brennan as the day-to-day showrunner for next season.

May Sweeps begin tonight (April 28th) and last until May 25th (a Wednesday): http://www.nielsen.com/content/dam/c...ielsen-com.pdf. That's why CBS aired repeats up until last night (and tonight NBC has the last Steve Carrell episode of "The Office"). "NCIS" and the like are ready to go for the next four weeks.

'NCIS' Creator Don Bellisario Sues CBS Over Spinoff 'NCIS: Los Angeles'
By Nellie Andreeva, Deadline.com - April 28th, 2011

EXCLUSIVE: A 20-year successful partnership between a top TV producer and a major studio may end up in court. This morning, JAG and NCIS creator Don Bellisario is filing a breach-of-contract lawsuit against the series' producer CBS TV Studios over offshoot NCIS: Los Angeles. The complaint, which you can read here, is being filed at Los Angeles Superior Court by Bird, Marella, Boxer, Wolpert, Nessim, Drooks & Lincenberg.

Bellisario, who was let go from NCIS in 2007 after star Mark Harmon threatened to quit the show, has not been involved in the successful spinoff series which was developed the following year and launched in fall 2009 and has not received a penny from it. The filing aims to rectify that, claiming that under Bellisario's contracts with CBS TV Studios and its predecessors, Bellisario had a right of "first opportunity" "to participate creatively in economically in the development" of any "new spinoffs, sequels or remakes" of any series he had created for the studio as long as he worked on the original series for the first 2 seasons. The suit claims that CBS denied Bellisario that right as he was never offered to create or be part of NCIS: LA, which was written by Shane Brennan, former No.2 to Bellisario on NCIS who took over the hit series after Bellisario's ouster at the end of Season 4. "Pursuant to the first opportunity provisions of Plaintiffs' contracts with CBS, CBS is contractually obligated to compensate Bellisario for NCIS:LA, including a percentage of its profits as well as a certain fixed compensation," the suit says.

The amount of damages sought is not specified in the complaint but NCIS: LA is estimated to generate more than a billion dollar in revenue for the studio over its run between network license fee, the lucrative off-network syndication deal with USA, which pays $2.3 million per episode for at least 10 seasons, the approximately $1.5 million per episode that international sales bring as well as auxiliary revenues. That means that the compensation, which the complaint claims Bellisario is entitled to, could reach $150 million - $200 million.

Bellisario's first hit for CBS was the 1980s Magnum P.I., followed by JAG and its spinoff NCIS. After more than 25 years of creating groundbreaking hit drama series for CBS, including the incredibly successful JAG/NCIS military justice franchise, CBS failed to offer Don Bellisario the opportunity to write or executive produce NCIS:LA, the third installment in the franchise he created," said Bellisario's attorney Ron Nessim. "In doing so, CBS breached its contractual obligations to Mr. Bellisario. After unsuccessfully trying to resolve the issue informally with CBS, Mr. Bellisario was compelled to seek resolution in the court system.

The complaint sheds light on the studio's arguments for denying Bellisario's requests for compensation so far. "CBS' refusal to compensate Bellisario for NCIS:LA is premised upon an unreasonably narrow interpretation of the first opportunity" provisions of the contracts in question," the lawsuit says. Such "first opportunity" provisions exist in all of Bellisario's deals with CBS Studios, including the most recent one signed in 2006, giving him the right to create new series related to the ones he originally conceived. The definition of what type new series are covered under the terms of the deal evolved over time (the first deal in 1992, for instance, excludes so-called "planted" spinoffs). The most recent 2006 deal specifies the projects Bellisario is entitled to get first dibs creating as "a generic spinoff (i.e., a new pilot and/or series in which a continuing central character is one who originally appeared in the pilot on which the original series was directly based), television sequel, prequel or remake or television movie or miniseries based upon such series." Even if Bellisario does not take part in such new series, he is still entitled to sizable passive payments for them.

While not spelling out exactly what CBS Studios' objections are, the complaint suggests that the studio doesn't consider NCIS: LA a spin-off or sequel as stipulated in Bellisario's deals. "Contrary to CBS's interpretation, Bellisario has the contractual right to participate in and be compensated for NCIS:LA because it is, among other things, both a sequel to and a spinoff of JAG and NCIS within the meaning of the "first opportunity rights provisions of Plaintiffs' contracts with CBS," the suit says.

NCIS and NCIS: LA, which is commonly referred to as an NCIS spinoff, do share several characters, including that of of the Director of NCIS. They also share the NCIS title, have the same general setting (or "inhabit the same fictional universe" per the complaint), the NCIS Agency, and both mix drama with banter among the members of the team. The complaint claims that CBS' decision to schedule NCIS: LA after NCIS further underlines the two series' close affiliation and that NCIS: LA landed its blockbuster off-network deal only 7 episodes into its run because of its close association with the mothership series. The suits also features quotes from Brennan and NCIS: LA stars LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell about the great similarities between the two series.

The legal dispute raises the question about what exactly constitutes a TV series spinoff as that term has evolved from the old days of traditional offshoots like Frasier. Like Law & Order and CSI, NCIS: LA is more of a franchise spinoff that carries the structure, the look and the feel of the original, something the complaint underscores a number of times.

Wondered about that myself... but I missed it last night (the "X", not the episode).

Figured it might take them a bit to catch up with reality... but that's neat.

I've been enjoying this arc and how they been dovetailing PTP into standalone eps. They are letting Weatherby act outside of the Dinozzo slapstick persona and the show has gotten better.

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

Yeah... that's the thing about a "wacky" guy like DiNozzo...

IF he truly was as incompetent as he often acts... then he wouldn't be any good as an investigator and wouldn't have been a cop much less an NCIS agent for that long.

So while his schtick is funny... I'm always glad when they let him be serious and show that side of the character to remind you that when the need is there, he is a top notch agent.

Oh... and I'm still rooting for CIRay to be the killer.

But next week who dies? EJ or Vance? Neither were on this week... and some think Vance might be on the way out like other previous NCIS Directors... the flip side is killing EJ would really mess with Tony... and it sure looks like the killer is toying with them now on a personal level.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Somewhere in/off this page tells how they control the computer screens on the set. Some nice pix, too.

Great episode. Never realized Harmon was missing so much hair. Smart move keeping hair parted in middle.

They have done that with Dinozzo on and off in the past with great success too. End of season 6/start of 7 with Ziva's boyfriend that he ended up killing in her apartment. Start of this season where he went to Mexico etc.

Vance is not going to be killed off yet. They killed off Jenny Sheppard so to kill off another director would just be a cheap re hash of an overall arc (IMO)
