I'm familiar w/ RCH but not PCH. Is it even a smaller dimension than a RCH?

RCH is in Wiki and Urdan, PCH is not.

For us, PCH (purple) was bigger than RCH.
Purple was achieved by dyeing results that went bad causing the item to increase in size.

Excellent episode last night. I like the new, mellower, more compassionate Gibbs.

I found this ep to be quite boring.

OK

While I didn't consider it excellent, I didn't think it was boring either. Good show, but not up there with their best.

The writers seem to be trying to give every team member some traumatic experience to deal with. I can't imagine anyone one group of people I know in real life having that much tragedy in their lives. Gibbs wife and daughter, McGee's g/f, Tony's "losing" Ziva (in that they're not together), the new girl losing her boss, Director losing his wife. I mean, geez, I would NOT want to work at NCIS under those conditions!

That's just the kind of show it is, like it or not. I don't know how old you are, but there are traumatic events in nearly everyone's life, I'm guessing not to the extent of a weekly "cop" show (which is what NCIS is, just under a different setting), but the longer you live, the more likely you are to experience them. A show about a governmental agency that deals with terrorism, assassins, and all other types of bad guys is very likely to have that "trauma" spill over into their own lives as well.

This is very true. Ziva's departure was "traumatic" for everyone, but especially for Tony since he finally admitted that he cared more for her than he had previously been willing to admit.

How true that is the older you get the faster the friends and family drop. I do not go the services anymore, not even family members, we just lost a daughter in October, we had a privet time with her.
I find the story lines and the personal trauma very believable very realistic, very life like.

Sorry to hear that, Phil17108. That's sad

My condolences on the loss of your daughter. I can't imagine the hurt.

Way past those like me who are severely acronym-challenged.

Hard to believe Kate's murder was not mentioned in the list of show tragedies.

I'm old and forgetful. That was how many seasons ago? Sorry I forgot to list that one.
post #1633 of 1664
I'm old, but not terribly old, BoilerJim, and I have experienced my share of tragedy, like many of you. My sympathies, Phil17108.

My point (and granted I don't work for government policing bodies) was that I've worked with teams of 10-20 people over my several decades-long career, and I've never seen such a CONCENTRATION of tragedy among 3-4 individuals (even among family members in law enforcement). I get that it's a TV DRAMA that needs something like this to push the stories, but it seems like it's a little "over-the-top". That was my only point - that it's becoming the tragedy-of-the-season style.

Sorry to read about your daughter.
A moment of Prayer.

Glad to see Bishop made an official (though probationary) part of the team last night. I really like her character in both definitions of the word.

Emily Wickersham's character is getting slammed anytime NCIS posts on Facebook. Still harping on "bring back Ziva" crap.
post #1637 of 1664
Well, she doesn't do a lot for me. I can take her or leave her. Show still feels like a 3 person unit instead of 4 at the moment. Maybe that will change now that the character is a probie.

Not happy with it. I hate it when the good guys act really stupid as in leaving an ARMED guard in an interrogation room with a terrorist who is UNSHACKLED. Just ridiculous.

The casting of Zoe McLellan as Agent Brody bothers me because she was a regular in JAG as P.O. Jennifer Coates.

I wouldn't have minded seeing Zoe as Ziva's replacement. "Bishop" just doesn't do anything for me.

But my first choice would have been Agent Borin.

Not sure I'm following you. Are you bothered by an actor/actress portraying many different characters in their careers? That's the only way I can understand your comment. Not picking on you, just not clear on why this bothers you.

Personally, I was a fan of hers on JAG and I'll be happy if she survives the casting (assuming NCIS: NO succeeds as a spinoff) and get to see her again regularly. I liked the character she played as well as the actress.
post #1643 of 1664
So any bets on whether NCIS New Orleans will be greenlit? I am in the undecided crowd. As much as I like the casting, it still just didn't "click" to me. Loved seeing the shots of New Orleans (I was born and raised in Louisiana), but the whole setup seemed a little weak to me (it didn't have the "oomph" that the NCIS LA spinoff episodes had). Still, Louisiana (and New Orleans in particular) is becoming the new Hollywood, so that alone probably gives it a bigger boost than it otherwise might.

Yes I agree, she should dye her eyebrows to match her blond hair. She would look better.. What happened to McGee after he got conked on the head last night? The new spinoff might work, beautiful locale down there..

I didn't care for the character that Scott Bakula plays. Seems cheesy to have someone named Pride and his attempt at a cajun accent doesn't work for me. I won't be watching if it does go forward. I do really like NCIS and NCIS/LA.

I agree. And I don't have any idea where all that "my brother" stuff comes from. I live here (New Orleans) and I've never heard anyone talk like that before. And just to be clear, that other guy (from Fast and Furious, I dunno his name) does have a southern accent... but the fact is that people in New Orleans don't talk like that. New Orleans accent is much more like New Yawk than Alabama . . . tongue.gif

I love to visit NOLA, an easy drive from Atlanta area..

Mother's is the real deal for breakfast...

As a Southerner, the fake accents are always a little off when non-southerners do them but I can handle that...We will see where this goes on the NOLA front, I am fine either way, yea or nay.

Word is, those scenes were shot in a studio in LA (not as in Louisiana "LA") . . . eek.gif

Lots more trivia here if anyone's interested.

NCIS is a spin-off of JAG. Generally, you would not use the same actor on both shows unless they played the same character.

Especially when the actor was in the opening credits.
