CON VISTAS A JETLAG...
21 de enero
¡Ay Dios! Por lo visto el capítulo que viene esta semana entrante promete mucho en aras de l@s amantes de TIVA ¡que dios nos coja confesados! A ver entiendo que esto es un mundo libre y que cada cual pueda suspirar por quien quiera pero es que y a riesgo de que me cuelguen me parece una pareja más apropiada para una serie de adolescentes, que me disculpen sus fans más fervientes pero es que no puedo con ello.
¡Ojo! Reconozco que hacen una pareja bonita, ¿para qué lo vamos a negar? pero de ahí a lo otro, pues como que no. A ver, que haya romance en la serie, ¡genial! de verás, pero no dentro de los componentes principales, si no vamos a acabar dando carpetazo a una buena serie policiaca para saltar de pleno a un culebrón en todo regla, y francamente ya hay para dar y tomar sin que convertamos NCIS en otra más.
Pero dicho esto, por mucho que la acción de este próximo capítulo transcurra en París - la llamada ciudad de amor (que me perdonen los gabachos pero donde esté Donosti/Viena/Venezia que me quiten lo bailao - que cualquiera de esas 3 me parecen ciudades más romanticas que París y eso que solo conozco Donosti), no sería nada de extrañar que Brennan esté tomando el pelo a los amantes de TIVA para luego jugarles una mala pasada como hicieron los Baa-Baas a los All Blacks el año pasado, vamos una LBW en toda regla como en una final cualquiera de las Ashes de criquet.
Bueno como yo no lo veré salvo que me regalen un viaje a los EE de UU solo ruego/rezo encarecidamente que Brennan esté jugando vilmente con un supuesto encuentro TIVA en plan romántico para luego dar zarpazo para que los amantes de lo mismo se quedan con la miel en los labios. Ya sé que no está bien decir estas cosas y habrá algunas que me mandarán conjuros en mi contra, no me importa porque como soy de Bilbao puedo con todo, vamos que para chula estoy yo; y si no lo decía me iba corroer por dentro ¡je!¡je!
Y con esto y un bizcocho se acabó lo que se dió.

DAMON WERTH - LOVE INTEREST FOR ZIVA?
20th January 2010
We were introduced to Damon in the season 5 episode "Corporal Punishment". He fascinated Ziva. The only man who was almost able to best her in a fight. But there was no real interaction between the pair of them. Cpl Werth is dishonorably discharged from the USMC for steroid use and disappears off the radar. Or so we thought.
Season 7's "Outlaws and Inlaws" comes along. Towards the end, Col Bell's men break into Gibbs' house. In the darkness and confusion one of the men says in surprise, "Ziva?" It is Damon. To me, this scene raised all sorts of questions.
How did Damon Werth recognize Ziva in the dark? She could have been anyone. But the sound of her voice, and as he was on top of her at the time, possibly her scent, tells Damon it is Ziva.
When Damon speaks, Ziva recognizes his voice. How does she know it is Damon? She barely spoke to him in "Corporal Punishment".
Somewhere between "Corporal Punishment" and "Outlaws and Inlaws" we have an offscreen mystery. Non case related contact was made. Did they date for a while? If so, are they still dating? Or are they simply, to use an old cliche, just good friends? Was bringing Damon back in "Outlaws and Inlaws" a teaser for a new love interest for Ziva?
The two characters have much in common and would make a good couple. I am over TIVA...let's have some DIVA instead.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE ADDICTED TO NCIS WHEN........
You watch 8 episodes in one day. Guess what I have done today? I've just got myself up-to-date on S7 by watching 8 of the first 12 episodes today!!! I watched 4 episodes this morning and I finished watching episode 12 'Flesh and Blood' 5 minutes ago. It wasn't my intention but work was extremely slack today and what I have in end has a delivery date for Thursday and Friday respectively so no rush.
What can I say? Well, basically enjoyed all 8 episodes, in particularly Faith and Flesh & Blood. Guest actors Ralph Waite and Robert Wagner are 'fuera de serie' and there 'mano a mano' with their respective 'sons', makes television worth watching.
Another pleasure of watching these 8 episodes is that there were no commercial breaks to spoil the continuity or emotions rippling through the episodes. Whilst I understand the need for commercial breaks, i.e. they are a 'necessary evil', which allow us to continue enjoying television series like NCIS, to watch these episodes without them is 'como está en la gloria'.
Of course now, I'll have to twiddle my thumbs until LaSexta 'se digna a' air S7, which at present seems highly unlikely, or I receive the remaining episodes once they've been shown thanks to a wonderful person on LJ who took pity on me, or the DVD of S7 comes out. Then of course, I could watch it 3 times over, which I suppose would be irrefutable confirmation of my addiction, mind you I don't think it's too bad as I have yet to 'cold turkey' when I don't see it, then again I tend to overdose on NCIS fan fiction, which is to an NCIS fan/addict what methadone is to a heroin addict. Not that I'm a hopeless case, I mean I could give it up if I wanted to, but of course I don't want to, and as such continue to fuel my addiction, but you know if my local 'quack' (doctor) were to order it, I'd have no difficulties whatsoever, no cold turkey symptoms, no nowt - just a deep void. So, anyhow, in the mean time it might be wise if I were to shut up while the going's good, right? Don't answer that, I already know the answer, and pues eso, me callo porque así estoy más guapa, y en fin serafin......
Y con esto y un bizcocho se acabó lo que se dió.

Written by Jesse Stern, this quirky episode from season 5 has a lot of fans, and with very good reason. Mostly offbeat and humorous, "Identity Crisis" introduced us to Jordan Hampton (later to be Ducky's ladyfriend) and FBI Special Agent Courtney Krieger. To referesh your memory, Ducky is performing an autopsy before some military medical students when mercury begins to ooze out of the brain of the corpse. Suddenly, a routine teaching assignment has become a lot more sinister.
This episode has several stand out scenes. Firstly in the squad room with McGee looking at pictures of dogs. He's thinking about getting a puppy. Gibbs is called away to autopsy. The team go to follow. We get to see just how obedient they are to their master, when Gibbs barks "Sit! Stay!" and then, almost sotto voce, with attendant smirk, "Rollover."
Another stand out is Ducky raging around autopsy, with the unfortunate Palmer catching the fallout. Followed by a furious Ducky going to visit the incompetent ME who failed to discover the man had been murdered. Gibbs accompanies him, probably to prevent any bloodshed. The change that comes over Ducky as he discovers Dr Jordan Hampton is female and attractive is a delight to watch. As is Gibbs complete amusement at it all. As they leave, a smirking Gibbs comments "Yeah. I hope she recovers from that tongue lashing." leaving Ducky to smile a little shyly.
The scene with Tony and Courtney undercover in the Indian restaurant is very funny.
However, the best scene in the episode comes towards the end. They finally have their man, but there are terrorists on their way to the USA and no-one knows who they are. Gibbs and Fornell undertake the interrogation. They are charming and civilized for all of three minutes. Then Gibbs takes Fornell's jacket and hangs it over the security camera. The fear on the killer's face is obvious. Both of them loom over him, slamming him back in his chair. A powerful scene loaded with carefully understated violence. We know that Gibbs and Fornell, whilst neither is adverse to bending the rules from time to time, would never beat a suspect to get information. Their unfortunate prisoner, however, doesn't know that.
Like any script of Jesse Stern's, there are some wonderful lines.
Lt Greer: What the hell is that?
Ducky: That, my dear lieutenant, is murder.
McGee: You need to get back on the horse, Tony.
Ziva: Are you getting a pony?
Tony: It's an adage, Ziva.
Ziva: I'm not familiar with that breed.
Ducky: This man's body should never have been donated to science.
Gibbs: Too late for a refund, Duck.
Ducky: Elementary, my dear Jethro.
Fornell: The world's on my shoulders.
Gibbs: A world made of paper.
Fornell: I don't give a flying crap what it states in the handbook.
Tony: It looks like a nice place, Honey.
McGee (back in MTAC): Sure does, Sweetcheeks.
Gibbs: The worst mistake you made?
Fornell: You tried to shoot our agents....
