NCIS 9×20– “The Missionary Position”: I was bored by this episode. I don’t like it when the team splits up, particularly when half of them have to go to a far-flung location like Tony and Ziva did this episode. And I didn’t particularly like Ziva’s friend either. First of all, it doesn’t seem like Ziva would even be the type to have a BFF. Second, that actress (I know her from somewhere else, I swear) was just so goddamn annoying that I couldn’t stand any of the scenes she was in.
The Gibbs and Ryan stuff is okay so long as it doesn’t take up too much screen time. I just don’t understand why Ryan had to be so secretive about giving Gibbs information for the investigation. Did it really need to be written on the inside of a pizza box? What would have been the difference if she had just spoken the words??? They were ALL ALONE anyway!! And please, please don’t make them be at cross-purposes during every single investigation. That angle gets SO tiresome!
Cougar Town 3×07 — “You Can Still Change Your Mind”: Well, that relationship was short-lived! I don’t know that I buy Bobby being the one to call things off because he wants something more serious, but whatever gets Sarah Chalke off my screen is fine by me. The rest of the episode was ok. I liked getting an explanation about the Jellybean nickname, but wish Ellie had been a little nicer about the Simon game. Laurie just looked and sounded so sad when she realized that Ellie was serious about calling her dumb. As I said before, I really dislike that aspect of their “friendship”.
Criminal Minds 7×20 — “The Company”: I actually liked this episode a lot, despite it not being a typical CM-type storyline. It was more like a generic plot from any police procedural, but it still worked for some reason. Maybe it was just because the subject matter was so fascinating. It’s frightening to think there are men out there that completely subjugate women like that and make them believe that they’re indentured servants or whatever. That’s freakin’ insane — but apparently, this was based on a true ripped-from-the-news story, so…wow.
