EVOLUCIÓN DE LAS AUDIENCIAS
15 de febrero
Bueno hoy el tema trata el temido share de audiencia. Esta mañana no tenía ni pijolera ídea de lo que iba escribir ni en cual de los 2 idiomas hasta que me picaron. Dicho sea de paso, tampoco costó mucho picarme como había hecho gau pasa con el curro, y a las 22 horas a día de hoy todavía no he pegado ojo, asi que ten paciencia con la menda si es que desvaríe un pelín porque es lo que hay.
La cosa es que todo empezó por culpa de TIVA, ¡sí! habeís leído bien la dichosa TIVA vuelve a asomarse para meter a ambos bandos (pros y contras) en un berenjenal como de costumbre, esencialmente por la beligerancia de los "pro", asi que la menda se puso a mirar las audiencias desde el último capítul de 2.009 que fue el de Faith, donde volvimos a encontrarnos con el aita de Gibbs con el ánimo en los suelos porque se vió obligado a pegar un tiro a un chaval para salvar a unas chavalas. La verdad por ser un capítulo navideño no fue demasiado almibarado como suele ser lo habítual en esas fechas dejandónos llenos de pegotes golosos. Y desde luego fue mejor el del año pasado que fue bastante turre con una Abby megañoña. También hay que reconocer que Ralph Waite sabe meter empaque en un su personaje sin la necesidad de sobreactuar, como suele habitual en los últimos años con los actores del nuevo horneado.
El año nuevo aparte del capítulo nuevo Ignition nos trajo de vuelta Ídolo Americano con todo lo que eso conlleva, una batalla campal todas las semanas, y no sé hasta que punto las cifras de audiencia para ese programa son reales y no tongo. Mentiría si dijera que no hubiera visto casos similares en cadenas de otros países, solo tenemos que ver la audiencia que supuestamente tiene la cuadrilla de putas que se hace llamar Gran Hermano en el estado español.
En fin volviendo a lo nuestro. El año nuevo empezó dignamente pero claro no tenía IA en la otra cadena todavía, si no que dicho placer le tocó el capítulo Carne y Hueso, o sea cuando conozcamos al calavera del padre de Tony retratado con estilo por el inimitable RJ, y que salvó el día en cuanto al share, aunque sí es verdad que 0.66 con respecto a la semana anterior. Después este capítulo llegó el del TIVA-ismo que supuestamente iba a tener a la peña pegados a sus butacas sin pestañear porque según el propaganda iba a ser la re-ho****, porque la TIVA-tion mola mazo, pero nada más lejos de la realidad ya que resultó ser como el champán sin gas, o sea que se quedó para vestir santos como quien dice. Y a su vez este capítulo arrastró consigo hacía abajo con el capítulo de Masquerada/Antifaz donde la letra hizo que una arpía cualquiera pareciese una hermana de la caridad. O sea tanto TIVA total para nada, más bien los pro-TIVA se han dado con un canto en los dientes en dicho capítulo.
Por suerte esta última semana, NCIS volvió a escalar los "ratings" aunque timidamente, pero bueno sí sabíamos que un capítulo donde sale Gibbs y Fornell y enzarzados en una escaramuza dialéctica pues la peña responde y se reune alrededor de la caja tonta, con el aliciente esta vez de ver Fornell con una barba estilo Felipe V, que sorprendentemente le rejuvenece.
El siguiente capítulo dentro de un para de semanas nos presenta la primera suegra de Gibbs encarnada por Gena Rowlands, y es de suponer que el share volverá a subir aunque sea una pizquita.
Y con esto y un bizcocho se acabó lo que se dió.
Gabon guztioi, ondo lo 'ta laster arte

EVOLUTION OF LEROY JETHRO GIBBS
15th February 2010
One character who has grown and changed a lot during the course of NCIS is Gibbs. This is very noticeable when you start watching episodes across seasons.
In early season 1 Gibbs was more of a big brother figure to the team. He teases Tony, and to a lesser extent Kate, in a manner which encourages familiarity from them. The boundaries aren't there that become apparent later. By the end of season 1, Gibbs is slightly more aloof from his team. More boss and less brother. This becomes more clear cut in season 2 with the addition of McGee to the team.
In season 3 we see more changes as Gibbs deals with the death of Kate, which he holds himself responsible for. There are yet more changes as he adjusts to the addition of Ziva to the team. A woman he still doesn't quite trust, even though she saved his life. He is also adjusting to the fact his former love and partner, Jenny Shepard is now his boss. The end of season 3 showed us part of the reason for the aloofness. The tragic deaths of his first wife Shannon, and only child, Kelly. Gibbs begins to deal with the emotions he has buried for many years.
Season 4 saw Gibbs continue to deal with his suppressed emotions, and with the fact that his secret is no longer a secret. This season provided more emotional turmoil for Gibbs in the shape of Hollis Mann, a woman he is sexually attracted to, but he is still an emotional basket case.
Season 5 saw real progress for Gibbs. By the episode "Ex-File" he has acknowledged to himself that he still grieves for Shannon and Kelly and at that point in time, there is no room for anyone else. Also comes the realization that not acknowledging that grief is what cost him his subsequent marriages. Hollis Mann realizes this and gracefully bows out of the picture. "Requiem" with Gibbs' Near Death Experience in which he sees his wife and daughter, allows Gibbs to truly begin to move forward with his life. The death of his former lover Jenny Shepard hit him hard, but by now Gibbs has a firmer base beneath his feet and is able to keep going.
Season 6 saw more emotional fences mended for Jethro with his return to his home town and his father. By the end of season 6 Leroy Jethro Gibbs was a man more at peace with himself than ever before.
Leroy Jethro Gibbs has continued to grow in season 7. He laughs and smiles more. He is becoming involved in life again, attending Thanksgiving with the rest of the team at Ducky's home. Gibbs also invites his father to spend Christmas with him. This is a man moving ever steadily forward.
I look forward to seeing what the rest of season 7, season 8 and beyond hold for the character of Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

Haven't written too many entries lately been a bit bogged down workwise I'm pleased to say. Today's entry is a pot-pourri of items, which I might think interest you all, so here goes.
First off, many thanks to fellow mod agentnics for being on the ball with all the latest regarding NCIS merchandise, and who today has posted info regarding an NCIS board game to be released some time in autumn this year. For more details just click Here.
Member MahonMacRi has brought us some interesting information regarding the MIA type bracelet, which Gibbs wore over several seasons, and thought it would be interesting to share with you all:
Some latest news on Michael Weatherly's film Charlie Valentine: Michael Weatherly will be honored with the Golden Honu Award at the Big Island Film Festival in Waikoloa, Hawaii where "Charlie Valentine" will also be featured as an Official Selection! For further info click Here and Here
| Apparently only one MIA exactly matching the information ("eorge G. 325911") seen in the extreme close-up of "Gibbs'" ID bracelet in the last scene of Season 4/Episode 7 "Sandblast" could be found.|
After extensive searches on several PMSEA/POW/MIA sites, I discovered ONLY two MIA's with the first name "George"/middle initial "G.," but one of them was returned alive in 1973; LtCol. George Grisby McKnight, USAF, 602 Special Operations Squadron.
The other was Lt. (j.g.) George Grefory Gierak, USN, co-pilot of an RA-3-B lost to anti-aircraft fire near the mouth of the Gia Hoi River, Ha Tinh Province, North Vietnam, on June 13, 1966. Their wingman saw "an orange explosion through the clouds, followed by loss of radio contact." SAR efforts got underway almost immediately, but no contact was ever established with the three crewmembers. Gierak and his fellow crewmembers were originally listed as MIA.
The A-3 had no ejection seats, so it was extremely difficult to get out of under ideal circumstances (eg; high altitude) but was virtually impossible to get out of at low altitude; given the circumstances, their listing was changed to "Killed/Bodies Not Recovered," on June 15, 1966. Although the pilot of Gierak's plane was later identified as one of the POW's in photographs taken during the Christmas 1968 event in the Hanoi Hilton, sadly, it turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.
And now back to the grind :-) Asi que con esto y un bizcocho se acabó lo que se dió.
PS: For anyone interested in obtaining copies of past works by the actors, you might also like to try: www.ioffer.com in addition to www.amazon.com, where you can obtain new and used DVD/VHS copies at modicum prices. I use both websites and have bought new and used copies depending on the price of the item since I live outside the US. These copies do come in good condition. Just thought you'd all like to know. Apologies for the lapsus, machine-tooling texts have that effect on my brain - LOL

This season 5 episode written by Steven Binder is by turns humorous and powerful. A marine is found dead at the site of a car crash, but it turns out he wasn't killed in the accident. A woman's body is discovered nearby. Ducky discovers that she recently gave birth. The hunt is on to find the missing newborn baby.
The scene at the crash site is a good one. When they discover that the Marine was moonlighting as a stripper. Ducky informs Tony that it is quite common amongst young servicemen. Then he starts to reminisce, but is cut off by Gibbs. The horrified, almost sick expression on Tony's face as realization begins to dawn on him, is a classic.
One scene remains in everyone's memory about this episode, and that is the confrontation between Ziva and Tony in the men's room. Powerfully written, Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo do a wonderful job with it. This scene, along with two that follow, elevate "Family" to the ranks of the great NCIS episodes.
The other two scenes are Gibbs with the young man in the nursery. He is gentle and understanding. The final scene is the one in the living room. Tony sits beside the fire. He watches the couple with their new son who is being checked over by Ducky. Then he turns to the little group in the doorway. Gibbs, Ziva and McGee. He reads Jeanne's note one more time, then consigns it to the flames, and goes to join HIS family, where he is welcomed with warm smiles. Tony has decided where he truly belongs.
I don't know if one thing is an intentional joke or not, but knowing the collective sense of humor on the NCIS set, I suspect it is. The paper mill that had been attempting to make paper from panda poop, is called Stern Paper Mills. A little joke at the expense of fellow writer Jesse Stern, perhaps?
This episode has some wonderfully memorable lines.
Gibbs: Our hit and run just became a shoot and scoot.
Tony: It's like Cocoon meets Dirty Dancing.
Tony: I wonder if Ducky has dreams like this. Gibbs probably isn't too far behind. (pause) He's right behind me, isn't he?
Gibbs: Be your dreams too, one day, DiNozzo.
Abby: Abby has to pee.
Tony: Pretend you're talking to someone who actually has sex with other humans.
Tony: Jelly Donut 1, Inspector Gadget 0.
Gibbs: Do I have to send you two back to the men's room?
Tony: Maybe you should point that out to Gibbs. I'll be in the next zipcode.
Gibbs: The prosecution is going to call it murder. Your lawyer's going to call it self defense.
Nicky: What do you call it?
