Season 3's first episode (Non-Spoiler Review!)



Loved it!  Even watched it again after it was over because I missed little things because I was on twitter.


Week 18: China Town

Chinatown (Originally aired March 2, 2010)

Summary from imdb.com
The death of a lieutenant commander appears to be suicide but the NCIS team uncovers evidence corresponding to murder. Also, Operational Psychologist Nate Getz joins Special Agent Kensi Blye in the field. Written by CBS Publicity

Merrily17:  Drunk chicks hanging out of the limos moon roof, how cliche!
NCISLARewatch: Dead guy!

NCISLARewatch:Sam and Callen going all married couple - ‘You’re my partner not my mother.'
Merrily17:  Sam is like his Mom

Nate is let out.

NCISLARewatch:  “Don’t make me get the muzzle.” Kensi to Nate

NCISLARewatch'sHubby: Don’t run.

Merrily17:  Spiking the drink...nice guy.

NCISLARewatch: Callen - What do you know that we don’t. Eric - The words to every TV theme song

Merrily17: Five weeks to the day since Dom went missing.

NCISLARewatch:  Why would anyone throw a toilet seat off a bridge?

NCISLARewatch:  I do not wan to meet the owner of this shoe. That’s a lot of woman. Maybe.

You do things you break things you don’t dabble in things.
NCISLARewatch's Hubby: Oh woman crying what do? I do what do? What do I do?!?!

Merrily17:  A gay lieutenant commander. Think his mother knew?

Merrily17:  Blood spatter, we need ABBY!!!!

Merrily17:  Eric just said the name of the episode “Chinatown”

NCISLARewatch:  We’re created a monster.  Well that’s what happens when you let Nate out of his office.

NCISLARewatch:  admirable quality curiosity, unless of course you’re a cat! HETTY!!

Merrily17:  Suckers for a pretty face, and she turned out to be deadly!

NCISLARewatch:  Good God guys

NCISLARewatch: Every time I come here I feel like I’ve walked into a damn Hardy Boys novel.

NCISLARewatch:  Leave that to me.  Oh crap.  Hetty is going to make them talk.

Kerwood Ames an operational psychologist who became an agent and was killed with in the first two weeks on the job... or was it two days? Nate asks Hetty about becoming an agent

Merrily17:  Aw the bobblehead... :(  Xiu Lee mail order bride/Chinese assassin/Calvin’s handler

Okay Dad is a bad guy...

NCISLARewatch's Hubby: They had cheese graphics in season 1.

Merrily17:  So they are able to have a second child and go to America if they raise him to be a spy.
Nice parents!!

NCISLARewatch:  On 3... NO! LOL

NCISLARewatch:  and yet  by September Nate is going out on his own doing his secret squirrel thing.

Merrily17:  AH, yes... the Peoples Republic of None of your Damn Business!

NCISLARewatch:  That’s a very dangerous place!  He has a GUN! LOL!

NCISLARewatch:  I think it’s because he got too close to finding out Callen’s past (in seeing the book with agent hand writting) and Hetty sent him away so he wouldn’t figure it out. (But we won’t put that in because that will spoil the stuff for the end of the season.) 
Merrily17: True

SEASON 3 STARTS TONIGHT!!!! and the Tossing of the Tissue Box!

So tonight is the night!  Season 3 starts for NCIS: Los Angeles.  It was a LONG summer and it did help (a little) to start from the beginning of this series.

From watching shows like Alias, Lost, Buffy, Angel, and Grey's I'm used to thinking during the show that everything is fine and then BAM! Something comes out of nowhere, hits you, takes out your heart, stomps on it, puts it back in your chest, takes your wallet and runs away.  You are left feeling shocked, angry, frustrated, surprised, and crying. When I saw this quote back in August from Shane Brennen on EW.com I laughed.

“We [often] lure the audience in to a false sense of security, and then smack them on the side of the head.” Shane Brennan.

Yes.  We keep on getting the Gibbs 'head slap' and we keep coming back for more.  Sometimes my husband (who is now hooked on BOTH NCIS' shows) asks "WHY?"

I don't ask anymore I just here for the ride.

So tonight I my kids will be in bed by 7:45 (whether they want to or not), I will be sitting in my chair, wearing my Comic Con 2011 NCIS: LA Hetty "BUGGER" shirt that I won on Ebay and I will have the follow things by my chair: 
  • The netbook set up on twitter.
  • my phone (ON SILENT but I will be checking texts because a family friend is in the hospital and not doing that well).
 And the most important one
  •  a box of tissues to use or throw at the TV or both. 

The tossing of the tissue box started 2006. Chris O'Donnell was on the 8 episodes of Grey's I was THRILLED he was on.  I was on the McVet bandwagon (especially after McDreamy kept on having hissy fits because Meredith  actually went on with her life but that's another story).

Season 2 finale of Grey's it's Prom night and McVet is telling Meredith that for the first time in a long time "he has plans" and they are happy.  YEAH! and then she looks at McDreamy who is across the room.  Crap.  She leaves and McDreamy follows her.  They argue blah blah blah and they are doing it in the exam room.

Now I'm 10,000 years pregnant with my daughter (about 37 weeks).  I'm sitting on the couch in an embarrassing (to my husband) Moo moo  it's one of the few things that fit me by the end of that pregnancy, I feel and look like Jabba the Hutt, and I am SOBBING!

Me: Can you hand  me the tissues
Hubby: sure
I take a couple of them out and then THROW THE BOX AT THE TV! which is on the other side of the room.
Hubby: What the Hell!?!
Me (sobbing, screaming and pointing at the TV): She should NOT be doing this!  He called her a WHORE!
Hubby: I thought you wanted them together.
Me: NO!  I want her with Finn!  HE HAS PLANS!!
Hubby: (understands now) "You just want Chris O'Donnell on the show"
Me: "Yes" and I sob more.

Three years later NCIS LA started.

So tissues used or tissue boxed tossed I'm very excited about tonight and cannot wait what they have in store for us for season 3.
