For whatever reason, Tuesday night’s “NCIS” was not exactly the most heavily-promoted one that we have ever seen. But after we watched it, we have a little better of an understanding why.
Ellie Bishop’s second episode of the story was something that was by and large forgettable, mostly because it was a murder-turned-kidnapping case that brought a couple of twists. The only real benefit was the opportunity to see Diane again, Gibbs’ ex-wife who has had so many different relationships within the world of this show, you would think that she was actually the star of “The Bachelorette.” There was a nice moment between her and Gibbs at the end of the episode, though it didn’t really help us to understand why Mark Harmon’s character ever married her in the first place.
In going back to Bishop, though, we feel like Emily Wickersham is doing a great job of playing the character, but the only problem that comes along with her being a new face is that the producers are inclined to show a lot of her. The balance is going to understandably be a little shaky in that time frame, since you have to see how she responds to everyone else and assimilates herself into the group. We cannot full sit here with a straight face and say that we loved her entire story this week, but that is because a few of the scenes just felt somewhat repetitive.
We can’t give a full endorsement to this episode as a whole, mostly because it feels like one of those episodes where we were missing something. What happened to Abby in most of this? Anyway, it was an okay hour of TV that felt like it still could have done more to shine. Grade: C+.
