Aingeal sums up Nikki's summing up - 5.18 - 5.29

This is going to less of a summing up than random thoughts really.

I suspected it would nto live up to the hype. It couldn't, it didn;t have a chnace, not really.

And I have heard many comments about the Houseian ending. i just hope they don't go down the route House has.

I think they would lose a heck of a lot of viewers if the regulars didn;t come back but you have brought up a point I have not thought about, what if onbe of them or more doesn't come back. Mind you we had that with season 4...

I hate that not all the loose ends are tied up. I hate arcs that outstay their welcome and this one really has. Across 2 season is long enough I feel.

I see the continuity is doing well once more. Blood you can research!

Ah so the snipers shot in the trialer was 2 kids phew.

Random fact William Decker was the name of a character in Star Trek: the motion picture.

Moving on...

Sasha has to be deliberate, has to be. They are good at references like that. Unlike continuity *cough*

Being overly anal is good. I hate it when things are glossed over.

1) Ooo Jenny freaks
2) Hee Gibbs got Ducky.
3) Ah Fornell had the file.
4) Oo Mike Franks back...interesting..
5) RIP continuity
6) Had to be Gibbs.
7) Scene changes make Nikki's head hurt.
8) Magnum PI. Didn't DPB do that?
9) Tut tut housebreaking?
10) Hellloo signposting.
11) Tony and Ziva investigate...sorta.
12) If I were a criminal I wouldn't use a cellphone.
13) Jimmy/CPR = otp
14) Ah some G/D
15) Ziva likes Jenny...
16) Ah the diner...
17) I like Franks.
18) Mmm Gibbs does like his bourban.
19) Signs here there an everywhere?
20) All that alcohol for nothing? Tut tut.
21) Jenny is dead.
22) Pfff Vance sucks.
23) Nah not Franks.
24) I say trap.
25) Awwww poor Abby.
26) Ooo Gibbs called Ducky.
27) Jenny protecting Gibbs from what?
28) Poor poor Abby.
29) Time to rewatch flashbacks. Dammit.
30) Oh dear...not clean..
31) Awww Gibbs has a god-daughter.
32) Oh pooh poh to Vance.
33) Poor Ducky, another one.
34) Awwwww
35) Abby needs hugs.
36) Grr Vance.
37) Yay loyalty.
38) I repeat GRRRR Vance.
39) Poor Tony and Ziva.
40) Of courser they are on Gibbs's side.
41) Damn Jenny sucks at assasinating. Not to speak ill of the dead but damn....don't blame yourself Gibbs.
42) Poor Ducky.
43) Vance sucks muchly.

Dammit the team better get back together or viewers wil be shed by the..shed load. *pouts and plots against Vance*

Re: Aingeal sums up Nikki's summing up - 5.18 - 5.29

Wow - this is nice and long.

*Settles in*

There was no chance it could live up to the hype - we fans have far better imaginations than the Hollywood writers :-)

I hope so too, I really, really do.

We'll no doubt see over the summer. If all three do go totally then there are going to be a lot of folk, as you say, bailing. I'd love to know if there's any truth in the MW gets his own spin-off show rumour, or if that's just hype.

I hate it too. I actually (stupid me) believe SB when he said all the loose ends would be tied up. Grrrr.


Ah, yes, he was indeed - well spotted.

I think 'Sasha' was deliberate too.

1. Yes, it was interesting to see.
2. He did - bless.
3. Oh, yes.
4. Indeed - but too much of him, IMO.
5. *Giggles*
6. Yep.
7. They did.
8. I think he did. And of course Tony is a CBF when it comes to Magnum.
9. I know.
10. They do it sooo well!!!
11. *Nods*
12. Nor me.
13. It was fun.
14. Yes. A lovely moment.
15. She does.
16. Indeed.
17. He's okay, but he really had such a prominant role in this.
18. He does! Most people would be under the table with the amount he downed.
19. *Smiles* Yep.
20. I know.
21. Yes - but it's her own fault.
22. He does.
23. Indeed.
24. Definitely.
25. Poor thing.
26. He did and Ducky was happy when he saw the name on the phone.
27. The woman she should have killed in Paris - apparently.
28. *Hugs Abby*
29. Yeah, I'm going to have to dig them out. Given that I'd always gone on about the 'man Jenny killed' I fear I'm not wrong *sigh*
30. Oh, dear, indeed.
31. Bless.
32. Quite!
33. *Hugs Ducky*
34. *Nods*
35. She does.
36. Grrrrrrr
37. Lovely.
38. I repeat your repeat.
39. I know.
40. Indeed, so right.
41. She sure does. And that's good advice, Gibbs.
42. Yes, he was not happy.
43. He does.

Re: Aingeal sums up Nikki's summing up - 5.18 - 5.29

I may have gone a tad overboard. ;-)

Yes we do it's a blessing and a curse. Hee.

Me too.

Yes it would be suicidal ratings-wise to get rid of all three, or even one. The ending does leave the spinoff very possible doesn't it?

They will never do that will they?

Thank you.

Yes. Makes sense.

1) Good or bad?
2) Hee.
3) As suspected.
4) Yes you can have too much of a good guest star.
7) *hugs*
8) He did. And yes Tony does like magnum.
9) Shocking.
10) They do.
12) We are sensible.
13) Nice to have some humour.
14) As always.
15) Jenny/Ziva *nods*
17) Too much?
18) Hee super Gibbs capable of knowing what people are saying and able to down a small bar.
21) Indeed he was.
22) Poo poo to him.
25) *hugs her*
26) I bet they call each other often. :-)
27) See she should have gone nad killed her at a later date. Not left in hanging.
29) I always thought it was a guy she killed. Oh so very odd.
30) quite.
32) Also *hugs* Ducky.
36) Lots of Grrrr.
37) Indeed.
38) It's true then.
40) Very right.
41) And yet she became director..jow? Do they not have pysch tests?
42) Do not blame him.

We need spoilers.

Re: Aingeal sums up Nikki's summing up - 5.18 - 5.29

Nah, not at all.

That it is.

You never know - they just might do it. Or at least do it with seeing Tony and Tim from time to time. I really don't know what's going to happen. Tis strange.

They don't.

1. A bit of both really.
4. You can.
8. He does. Does CLF?
12. That we are.
13. Indeed - there wasn't much, understandably so.
15. I'm sure it 'happened'.
17. I think so.
18. *Smiles* Indeed.
22. Oh, yes.
26. Of course they do. After all we had Ducky's wonderful line about how he knows he usually dominated the conversation.
27. Exactly! It's very werid. If she knew it was hanging over her then she should have done something. Hmmm.
29. I'm glad it's not just me. I will check.
32. Gibbs'll hug him lots.
36. Oh, yes! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
38 *Giggles*
41. I know. I know. So odd.
42. Indeed.

You've converted me :-)

Re: Aingeal sums up Nikki's summing up - 5.18 - 5.29

Oh good.

Yes and TPTB never actually show sense do they? I admit worse case scenario I could cope if DiNozzo did nto come back but not Ziva or McGee.


1) Sounds about right.
4) Yes indeed.
8) Well CLF loves early eighties TV (my nostalgia there I had to introduce him to what I grew up on) I don't think he's seen Magnum. I shall have to remedy that.
12) Good for us.
13) Yes very drama heavy.
15) Me too. Me too.
17) Oh dear.
26) Hee hee oh yes. He clearly knows the routine.
27) Yes you would have thought so. I mean she went all that way with the frog but she couldn't pursue that?
29) Nope, not just you.
32) Yes. Good.
36) lots of grrrr.
41) Like everything about her...

Hee and it only took three years ;-)

Re: Aingeal sums up Nikki's summing up - 5.18 - 5.29

They don't always. And yes, I agree with you (looks cautiously around). I'd rather not, but if it had to be one of the three, then I'm sorry to say it would be him :-((( But no, we're going to get them all back . . .

8. You will indeed.
13. Indeed.
15. *Smiles*
26. He does. And it was such a lovely line *sighs happily*
27. Exactly! Very odd, if you ask me.
29. Oh good.
36. Indeed

*Smiles* Indeed.

Re: Aingeal sums up Nikki's summing up - 5.18 - 5.29

Indeed. Yes I admit I feel exactly the same. But yes all of them back please.

8) It's on the list ;-)
26) It is indeed.
27) Bizarre. And so strange.
29) Indeed.

Re: Aingeal sums up Nikki's summing up - 5.18 - 5.29

*Nods in agreement*

8. *Smiles*
26. *Happy sigh*
27. Very.
