I don't know what I'd watch half the time without these two shows.

Gibbs or Mac Taylor?...most interesting character?
If you've watched the new CSI do you think Ted Danson is a patch on 'Grissom'' ?

Would you like to have done that kind of job? :-D

( trivial thread of the day, not contentious ;-) )


DazedConfused Report 6 Apr 2013 21:01

As much as I loved Grissom, I did not like the guy brought in series before last.

I think Ted Danson brings something new to the show.

Me I love

NCIS, CSI & CSI New York, and could not consider any better than the other

However, CSI Miami was a joke, terrible acting no wonder it was cancelled.

Gibbs is just too gorgeous.....

They are both totally, ridiculously unrealistic, but very watchable :-D. I don't really get into it enough to know who's who, but I cannot stand the woman with black pigtails (Abby??) She would go straight into Room 101!

Love Abbi and all the NCIS crew.

I think Ted is doing a good job, better than when Marg was in charge.


Nyx Report 6 Apr 2013 21:08

that'll be Gibbs then Gwynne? lolol

PP I don't know about Ted Danson, he just seems a bit too old? but I have only watched a couple with him in so maybe he grows on you :-)

lol Sheila,I like Abby she reminds me of someone I used to know :-)

Gibbs does it for me, love it when he smiles.

Emma :-)

I feel so inadequate......I haven't a clue who any of them are :-(


Cynthia Report 6 Apr 2013 21:27

Gibbs for sure!! <3

Love Abbi's quirkiness.

OH has taken to watching Castle/Murdoch/BlueBloods etc. on Alibi??

Murdoch is just gorgeous.

swoons off..............

funny really, full circle tv wise for me as David McCallum 'Ducky' in NCIS was my first 'crush' when he was Illya Kuryakin in 'The man from U.N.C.L.E'.


DazedConfused Report 8 Apr 2013 09:39

I am now finding after 10 series that Abby who was quite cute to start with is now getting on my nerves.

She is in her mid 30's not a child and ....... oh I could go on but will not.

I can put up with quirky and eccentric.

And RR me too my first crush as well...


Bobtanian Report 8 Apr 2013 09:46

When it first started I was able to accept that the FORENSICS procedures were Viable but as time went on it got more cops n robbers, and I dislike the cops attitude where they assume someone did something, use flashbacks to visualise it and browbeat the poor (often innocent) suspect into a confession............

and it is often too obvious that the situations ARE contrived instead of being remotely possible in real life.........


But thats what makes the show, I guess.......... ;-)

Definitely Gibbs – it’s his quirky smile as much as anything.
We enjoy Abba’s character, but were only saying the other day that she is getting a bit long in the tooth to play the eccentric heart-on-sleeve Goth.

David McCallum is doing very well for his age, isn’t he? :-D

Another ‘silver fox’ was Colonel Jack O’Neil from Stargate-SG1. Apparently the actor Richard Dean Anderson played the roll of MacGyver, not that I can remember watching that.

Edit - Mac Taylor seems too wooden to me. It makes me think that he has a back problem

Added - the situations may be contrived, but its the interaction of the characters which makes the shows enjoyable.

Could I do such a job? No - in real life not a good enough background in science and too quick to believe what someone says.


Cynthia Report 8 Apr 2013 11:24

Saw 'Gibbs' in a cowboy film yesterday where he played a violent, ruthless and brutal baddie......... :-(

I'll just think of him in NCIS instead...... :-D
