Positively Positive NCIS Review “The Missionary Position” – Meeting Ziva’s Mentor, Plus Palmer Picks His Best Man

by on Apr.18, 2012, under NCIS

This episode of NCIS (with the rather naughty sounding title “The Missionary Position”) has the team on the case of a missing, you guessed it, missionary. The case leads the team in some pretty interesting directions, not only to things like the CIA running a secret mission to use free vaccinations as a way to get DNA samples of families part of drug cartels, but also to an old friend and mentor of Ziva’s.

As the case runs its course, we see Gibbs and Ryan’s relationship getting tested as they both continue to do their jobs the way they always would, but find things much stickier now that they are sort of getting in each other’s way. I liked that though they had their little spats, in the end they left it in the Navy Yard and ended up snuggling on the couch. I take that as a good sign that this relationship could be a strong one. I even predict that Gibbs will meet her son at some point in the future.

Meanwhile Palmer’s wedding is getting closer and after deciding to go with a kitschy theme, he just has to pick his best man. I’ll admit I thought he should pick Tony at first, seeing as how those two had an established friendship, but I love that he picked Abby. I think she’s going to make an awesome Best Woman and I can’t wait to see this wedding.

My favorite bits..

Cracking up at the way the guy said “Seriously??” when the chick wanted to move because of bad energy.

“Holy full frontal, autopsy gremlin. Are you about to flash us your Magic Johnson?”

Oooh..and now we know why Gibbs didn’t want the team to pick him up.

“The sun is so pretty in that room.” “Somebody else used to say that.” – So sweet, but that hurt my heart a little.

Sam making Gibbs giggle with her “mayday, mayday” – Awww!

“Practice makes perfect.” – Whoa! Naughty, naughty. Love it.

Ducky comparing planning Palmer’s bachelor party to getting root canal. Youch.

Oh dear, did Palmer just go for the “fungus among us” joke?

I’m with Tony, how can Palmer be considering anyone else as best man?

Gibbs telling Abby she was making too much yabba yabba. Haha! Guess it’s not just Tony, then.

“We work like peas in a poke, like yogurt and garlic.” – Haha! Another great Ziva-ism.

“This looks like fun, I haven’t done this since the 80′s.” Oohh.now there’s something we’ve never seen Gibbs do in that elevator before.

One room, two girls and Tony? Oh boy, this is probably not gonna go well.

“How do you concentrate, Ziva? With so many handsome men around?” – I’ve often wondered that myself.

Manny + Gibbs + trash can lid = Ouchie.

Is it just me or is Gibbs smiling and laughing a lot more recently? I think Dr. Ryan is good for him.

“Do you think they know we’re here?” – Naaaaahhhhh.

Gibbs having to keep his team from turning on each other, from a few thousand miles away. Not an easy task.

“Take it from me, I carry a lot.”

Palmer asking Abby to be his Best Woman. Sounds like she’s got some great ideas for a bachelor party. LOL.

Positively Positive NCIS Review “Rekindled” – Another Look Into Tony’s Past

by on Apr.18, 2012, under NCIS

In tonight’s episode of NCIS, called “Rekindled”, Tony meets up with a young man from his past. The team is brought in on a case of a man found burned to death and the arson investigator for Baltimore PD is Jason King, who Tony saved from a fire twenty years before.

NCIS comes on board when they discover that the victim was a member of a Black Ops unit called The Phantom 8 and also the third member of the group murdered in the last year. He was tortured, apparently for Navy secrets – secrets that could cost a lot of lives. Turns out faulty wiring was put on a lot of Navy ships and someone out there knows just how to take advantage of that weakness to start fires.

When I first heard about this episode, I knew that Tony was going to reunite with a kid that he saved from a fire. What I didn’t know was that Tony was practically just a kid himself when he did it; just a college guy out for a walk to clear his head before a game. I also didn’t know that though Tony managed to save Jason, he also had to make a choice that no person should ever have to make – choosing to save one life over another when he decided that he couldn’t save Jason and his little sister as well. Though Jason doesn’t want to hear it, Tony does manage to get the message across to Jason that he had to do what he did, he had to choose, or they all would have died.

The other part I didn’t know about the story was the fact that that night was the first time Tony felt like he did something to make a real difference and it was the catalyst that made him decide to become a cop. I have to admit that I always did wonder what it was that made him take that route, though I guess a part of me just assumed it was some sort of rebellious act against his father. The truth is sadder and yet speaks to the man that Tony is today, a guy who’s always somehow blaming himself when the people around him get hurt; probably forever looking for a way to save that life that he couldn’t.

Judging by the ending, this storyline is far from over and I’m assuming that it will carry through until the end of the season. I also wonder if we’ll find out more about Tony as well but even if we don’t, I am so glad we got yet another piece to the puzzle that is DiNozzo.

My favorite bits..

“One more word about your boots and you’re going to find mine up your ass, DiNozzo.”

“You’ve been through puberty? I hadn’t noticed.”

“What is it with chicks and firemen?…..and don’t say hoses.” – Dangit, he took the joke right out of my mouth.

Gibbs reminding McGee not to assume anything.

McGee and Ziva in those lab coats and goggles.

The guy at the lab immediately assuming that McGee was into dorky role-playing games. Gee, I wonder whatever gave him that idea?

Gibbs asking Abby if the guys on Mythbusters were pyromaniacs. Haha! Well, that’s one way to describe them. I did love seeing two of my favorite shows collide.

Finding Billy’s love and fascination for fire just a wee bit creepy.

Abby giving Jason a hug as soon as she found out he was in a fire when he was a kid.

Jason throwing Tony out of the way to save his life, and making them even.

“I don’t know, sounds like a bunch of geek speak to me.” – Ha! Nicely done, McGee.

Positively Positive Supernatural Review of “The Born-Again Identity” – Cas Returns!

by on Apr.18, 2012, under Supernatural

Well folks, it happened, it finally happened. After months of waiting, wishing and hoping, Supernatural brought back our beloved Castiel in tonight’s episode, called “The Born-Again Identity.”

Now I can finally stop holding my breath and let out everything I’ve been thinking about this episode ever since I was lucky enough to catch a screening of it at the CW yesterday. I didn’t want to leak spoilers but at the same time, I’m so happy I can finally share with everyone just exactly how this episode made me feel. And what can I say? This one blew me away. Every actor brought their A-game to the table and there wasn’t an idle performance in the bunch. From Sam’s pain, Dean’s determination, Castiel’s initial confusion to eventual guilt, and even Lucifer’s hilarity – I enjoyed the heck out of everything that every single character did.

Sam gets himself admitted to a mental hospital after Lucifer takes him for a ride that leads to Sam getting hit by a car. Then Dean does the same thing Sam did in ‘Faith’ – he starts calling anyone and everyone to find Sam help, and what he finds is a healer named Emmanuel. Turns out Emmanuel is none other than Castiel, still with his angel powers but devoid of all his memories.

I felt bad for every character in this one. Sam of course with his torture (although it was really hard not to sometimes laugh at Luci’s antics) was hard to watch, as was Dean when he found Cas but had to hide the truth from him in order to try and save his brother.

And then there was Cas. Now we all know that Cas hurt Sam and as much as I love my angel, I didn’t take that lightly. But I don’t think there is anything he could have done to make it better; that would have been more fitting than pulling Sam’s nightmares into himself. With one touch he healed Sam and also brought on a punishment for all of his crimes. It made me proud even as it broke my heart. I know that Cas will have to be fixed someday, but right now I have no clue how Sam and Dean are going to do it.

But thanks to Cas, Sam and Dean can work together and hopefully now we’ll start to see them working their way out of the hole that has been getting deeper and deeper this season. Maybe now that Sam is whole again they can figure out how to beat the leviathans and maybe, just maybe, make Cas whole again, too.

My favorite bits..

Poor Sammy. I HATE that ridiculous Good Morning song, too. Mean Luci.

Luci pointing out to Sam the good news that if Sam was normal, he’d be dead in a week. Leave it to Lucifer to find the bright side.

“Keep that sense of humor, Sam. It’ll get you through this.”

My heart breaking a little when Dean said “Screw Cas!”

So torn between heartbreak for Sam and hysterics over Lucifer. It’s not fair how funny he is.

Luci reading the medical book and commenting that he *could* have narcissistic personality disorder. Haha! Ya think?

The journal “magically” ending up on the floor. Oh Bobby, please let that be you.

Luci comparing Sam’s locked room to the cage. Ouch.

Ugh! And another scene with food I’ll never be able to watch on this again.

Lucifer breaking out the bullhorn. That is beyond cruel. Every time Sam flinched, I did too…and yes, I did laugh a little. Dang that Luci.

Is it wrong to admit that I totally recognized that ass immediately? Just sayin’.

Positively Positive Review of Supernatural “Party on Garth” – A Welcome Surprise Ending!

by on Apr.18, 2012, under Supernatural

Once again Supernatural has taken an episode, steered it in one direction for 59 minutes and then done a complete 180 in a new direction for the last minute. In tonight’s “Party On, Garth” I got pretty much what I expected for most of it – a fun episode that offset the drama from last week. Sure, we touched on what happened to Cas (and I have no doubt that we will see plenty more of him, so it didn’t bother me at all that all we got was a mention) and even hinted a bit about Bobby. But we’ll get back to that in a minute.

In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I decided to get in the spirit of this episode and imbibed a little bit myself. I drank shot for shot with the boys and boy am I feeling it. I mean whoa, that chocolate shake is gonna hit me hard in the morning. The boys (and by boys I mean Sam, Dean and Garth) were on the hunt for a ghost that you can only see when you are drunk, which is actually pretty ingenious when you think about it. After all, no one’s gonna believe it when somebody who’s snockered says they see a monster, so it’s the perfect disguise.

And now we get back to the Bobby thing. We’ve all seen the hints ever since he died and it turns out the boys haven’t missed them either. Heck, even Garth was thinking that Bobby was haunting them, but when Dean practically begs his old friend to show himself, he gets bupkiss.

Then it happens, finally, FINALLY we see what we’ve all been waiting for….Bobby standing in the room right there with Dean, calling him an idjit and saying “balls!” just like he always did. And now we’re left wondering why the boys can’t see or hear him. What is it that has kept them from knowing for sure that he was there? And with Bobby “back”, does that mean the boys will finally have the answers they need about the Leviathans? Will they be able to beat the big bads after all? So many questions. Let’s just say that April 20 cannot come fast enough.

On a final note, can we talk for a second about how well this secret was kept? I had no clue and I consider myself pretty well-informed about this show. I mean, I often know things that are top secret and have to wait for them to be announced before I can say anything. But this one was kept tucked away under Bobby’s trucker hat. Nicely done, show. Nicely done.

My favorite bits..

Okay all together now.. EEEW!

LOL! Now there’s a song I never thought I’d hear on this show. Bell Biv DeVoe’s ‘Poison’? Hell yeah! Party on, Garth!

“You’ve been Garthed.”

Dean calling Meg to check in on Cas. Awww!

Not being at all surprised that Sam was guilty that Cas took on his crazy. That’s so like him.

The look on Dean’s face when Garth said he looks good in a uniform. Haha!

An invisible ghost werewolf? I know that’s not what it is, but how freaking awesome would that be?

“Is that a stripper or a beverage?”

Dean assuring Sam that Garth grows on ya. Haha!

Positively Positive Review: Dish Network

by on Apr.06, 2010, under Services, Television, Websites

Dish Network Logo

Recently I’ve been asked to write some blog posts giving my opinions of various websites, products, etc. This time it’s about dish network and the advantages of it over cable.

Now at first I wondered how I could write about this, considering that I don’t actually have Dish Network. I have another satellite though and one thing I can say is after having one, I’ll never go back to cable. If for some reason I move and can’t take my current service with me, the first thing I will be doing is calling up companies like Sterling Satellite (for whom I am writing this review) and see about getting new service.

I know some people worry that a satellite, any sort of satellite, won’t work sometimes – losing picture because of things like weather, etc. I’m here to say that’s wrong. I’ve had a satellite for about 6 years now and the only times I can recall losing service (which is very rare, less than 5 times for sure), it was usually due to some other type of issue. My landlord cut the wires once, let’s just say that didn’t do a lot for my service.

Satellite services, like Dish Network, offer tons of channels, high quality picture, DVR services and more.

Overall I have to say – what’s there not to like about that? :)
