Thought I'd tackle the discussion threads today, in particular the one 6.25 Aliyah and the current All Year Season 7. Why mention these threads? Well, for starters on the one on 6.25 Aliyah lasted from the airing of said episode until commencement of Season 7, i.e. 4 months where people talked about the same topic all the time, picking up different questions in relation to said episode, the nuances, etc., without going off at a tangent. Since the beginning of the season the discussion threads on the first 4 episodes have likewise been productive. When I started writing this entry there were already 140 posts, and that's just in 3 days. However, even more amazing is the general thread created for Season 7 in general, and in one month we have 70 pages and approx 1400 postings on one subject, i.e. Season 7 without digression towards chit-chat.
I think this says a lot re. people's interest in this series, in that they're capable of talking about different episodes, seasons without veering from the topic. Curiously our general chit-chat thread, i.e. the anything goes thread, namely the HWF, and in particular the Summer HWF started in June, is way behind these topic centred threads, which really proves people are here to talk about the series, the cast, plots, etc.. To remain centred on one theme with so many members is yet another demonstration of NCIS consolidation among fans, perhaps even the beginning of a 'cult' series, which would be quite something. Clearly the series creates adepts, whose numbers are growing steadily and at a fairly solid pace - 100 new members this week, who will hopefully take part in these interesting discussion threads, or even just read them, since they do make interesting reading as well.
Y con esto y un bizcocho se acabó lo que se dió.

GABBY - A SECOND LOOK
15th October 2009
With the TV Guide online commenting that we are going to see more of the Gibbs and Abby relationship this season, I felt it was time to take another look at the subject. I am relieved however, that it isn't going to be "Gabby" as beloved by some shippers, and that the TV Guide's view on that subject is the same as mine. Ewwwwwwwwwwwww.
Personally, I think what we are going to see this season will directly tie back to the season 6 episode "Silent Night". I said at the time this episode aired that it looked like a story line was being set up for Abby. Something to explain her oddball brattish behavior throughout this entire episode. And something that would explain Gibbs' tolerance of her behavior. He must know something of her past. Gibbs is not usually tolerant of bad behavior on the part of any of his team. Especially behavior that could threaten the case, as Abby's interference could easily have done.
Abby's insistence on spending Christmas Eve at NCIS and not home alone was understood by Gibbs. At some point Abby has obviously confided in Gibbs and for that reason he was prepared to cut her some slack. Mind you, I don't think Gibbs would be too fond of Christmas Eve either.
After my earlier blog I was interested to see that most people did not like the "Gabby" ship. Most people viewing a romantic relationship between Gibbs and Abby with some revulsion. Not because of age, but because, like me many saw the relationship as father/daughter. Though others felt that the relationship was more uncle/favorite niece.
Any way you look at it, the relationship between Gibbs and Abby is one of the favorites of the NCIS fans.

EL RELEVO LÓGICO DE DUCKY - ¿JORDAN ó JIMMY?
el 15 de octubre
Hablando mi compañera de faenas de relevos de mando, en concreto de Gibbs, me viene a la cabeza la siguiente pregunta: ¿Quién sería el relevo lógico de Ducky? Jordan ó Jimmy?
En teoría sería Jimmy ya que Ducky ha sido y es su mentor. Además hemos visto a Jimmy progresar de ayudante balbuceante a un hombretón con cierta confianza en si mismo, recordemos en el capítulo 'Roto' cuando discutía con Ducky sobre unas calles, algo que hace poco no le hubiese pasado por la cabeza. También le hemos visto ayudar a Gibbs en un capítulo de la 5ª temporada, cuyo nombre no recuerdo ahora mismo, pero que lo han echado hoy en LaSexta esta tarde. Luego ha habido varios capítulos en que le hemos visto bastante unido a Tony un poco como Gibbs y Ducky aunque de otro estilo. Luego sabemos también, que Ducky deposita cada vez más fé en sus capacidades.
Sin embargo, también vimos en el mismo capítulo donde Jimmy discutía con Ducky, o sea, 'Roto' donde Jordan Hampton vino a sustituirle. Y claro ella ya es todo una forense médico con experiencia y currando como tal, además es bastante más joven que Ducky pero mayor que Jimmy . Luego también, vimos en el mismo capítulo que Jimmy se llevaba igual de bien con ella que con Ducky, y tal vez menos tímido ya que ella impone menos.
Pero claro, llegado la tersitura ¿a cuál de los 2? ¡Ojála Ducky siguiese ad infinitum? Lo que pasa es que el tiempo no pasa en balde para nadie. Por mí cualquiera de los 2, ya que no sé por cual decantaría, porque los 2 tienen cosas buenas y malas. Además lo que sí está claro, es que ninguno de los 2 goza de la sabiduría que tiene Ducky.
En fin, con esto y un bizcocho se acabó lo que se dió.

TONY AS NATURAL SUCCESSOR TO GIBBS
14th October 2009
Sooner or later, Gibbs is going to move on (see my blog about Gibbs as future director). Is Tony the natural person to take over the team?
Smart mouthed and irritating, at first glance Tony is not leadership material. But if we look a bit deeper at Mr DiNozzo, we see a different man.
Tony is intelligent, there is no denying that. He is also hard working. Often in the office late at night. He is often the first at his desk in the morning as well. A man dedicated to his job.
He doesn't cope with pressure well. In "Bounce" when the team was hitting dead ends, he lost his temper with them. He was only pulled back onto an even keel by a gentle dressing down from Gibbs. Unless Tony learns to deal with that level of pressure, he may make leader but he won't last long.
Tony is intuitive, even though he doesn't trust his gut like Gibbs does. Gibbs: You've got to trust your gut. Tony: I'd rather trust yours.
A good, solid workhorse, with occasional flashes of brilliance is Tony.
I think he will eventually make a good successor to Gibbs. Once he has learned to trust himself and to trust those around him. At the moment the only agent he really trusts is Gibbs.
What do you think?

While I agree there's not much seductive wise, the things they say to each other, etc I would never do with a male relative or someone I saw as a father figure. Gibbs is very sexy and I can see where something could happen and though she may act childlike at times I see the character being at least 30 yrs old due to the degrees she has etc. Just my take on it.
