Whoa!
Adding this to my DVR.  
When I kicked NCIS to the must see TV curb - I was worried that I wouldn't find anything to fill the void - looks like those fears were unfounded. 
So much to look forward to this season.  I like it!

Just watched the finale for Once Upon A Time.

I have no words or emotions left... yeap, used them all up watching this...

I don’t bond easily with TV shows, so when I find one that I like, I am a faithful fan. Right now I only have four shows that I watch (NCIS, TBBT, Homeland and Game of Thrones). I just may have found my fifth.

I was blown away by Season One of Showtime's Homeland.  It really is a shame that this show is not on network TV so that more people could enjoy it.  If you get the opportunity to watch it, please give it a try - you will be in  for a rare treat. 

One word of caution: this show is NOT for the casual viewer - the twists, turns and pacing does not lend itself to hit and miss viewing - you will be lost - totally - if you don't watch every episode and pay careful attention. Which is exactly what I love about this show - you can't predict where it's going.

About the time, you think you have it figured out - another plot point opens up that discounts previous thinking.  It's layer upon layer - both in terms of the plot and the character development.  It's one story arc - not episode specific like we see with most weekly procedurals. 

Some thoughts on Season One and the finale:

I am one of those NCIS fans who hasn’t seen very many episodes from S1 and S2 – I didn’t start watching until S3 and never had time to go back and catch up -- although I have watched some of them, so I am not completely clueless to the happenings in the early days of the show. But, I have to admit that I am far from well versed in these two seasons

 

My friend [livejournal.com profile] nakeisha  loves S1 & S2, after reading some of her comments and posts, I have decided that I am going to go back and watch all the episodes during hiatus – and I am watching them in order.

 

I started last night with 1.1 Yankee White – the pilot episode.

 

Here are some of the things I noticed:

·         Gibbs has been building boats from the beginning – first scene that we see of him he is in his basement sanding a boat

·         It’s a two man field team (Gibbs and Tony)

·         Gibbs smiles A LOT and has a sense of humor about most things

·         The rules have been around from the beginning

·         Ducky has always had his little anecdotes

·         Tony was competent – but fun

·         Gibbs flirted with Kate (oh yes, he did – it was subtle – but it was there)

·         Abby wasn’t quite as gothic or quirky

·         Abby looked about 10 lbs heavier (and it looked good on her – she’s way too thin now)

·         Gibbs was a movie buff – He knew a lot about the movie Executive Decision set aboard Air Force One.

·         Fornell has been around since the beginning and he and Gibbs didn’t know each other (not sure how the shared ex-wife plays into that – I am a bit confused on that timeline – maybe subsequent episodes will clear that up for me)

·         Gerald was Ducky’s assistant

·         The gag that no one has ever heard of NCIS (the agency) has been around since the beginning

·         Director Tom Morrow ROCKED – I didn’t know what we were missing in a Director until I saw him

 

I am excited about watching the episodes that I haven’t seen and re-watching the episode that I have seen with “fresh eyes”.

 

A good way to get my NCIS fix over the hiatus!
