    Exactly. In fact the whole methodical and detailed police teamwork reminds me fondly of Major Crimes.

    This. I actually found this episode an improvement on last season. By making Julian part of the team and creating the two couples dynamics with the partners being left out so often, it almost became a relationship dramedy at times. I just ignore the actual cases plots and enjoy it for what it is: a mental palate cleanser between the many complex/ heavy/dark/stressing shows that I also watch.

    S02.E04: She Knows

    After this second Ambien episode, I am beginning to think Mary Louise may have switched Celeste's medicine into some other roofie. We did see her finding it in Celeste's drawer and it could have given her the idea.

    I guess Renata was right: We stay :)

    Killing Eve

    Another new one is "You" and they really blurred the lines there. If the main protagonist would just avoid reluctantly killing everyone that is messing with the people he loves he would actually be an empathetic caring person. Talk about ludicrous.

    Killing Eve

    I assume that Eve was just following Hugo's advice and this was why they had the previous exchange, as a hint for us: Eve: Omigawd, you're alive! Hugo: I played dead. A hero's technique.

    SEAL Team

    They were slapping their Trident wings into the coffin as a sign of respect for a fallen comrade. https://movies.stackexchange.com/questions/30481/what-is-the-meaning-of-the-badges-on-the-caskets-in-american-sniper

    Whiskey Cavalier

    I know its a trivial point, but I found the bad guys in black and good ones in white hilariously anachronistic. I know you need to tell which is which on the snow, but still...

    S06.E04: The Face Behind the Glass

    I was just about to post this. He must have had a strong feeling of deja vous :)

    S16. E24. Daughters

    Ziva is clearly another hallucination as Diane specifically said: "We are all here for you, Inside", i.e. inside his mind. This season drew quite a lot from early story lines and characters and I suspect next season will include an ongoing "Gibbs gets in touch with his feelings" character development, with maybe more "visits". I think they tried to decrease the feeling of Gibbs going crazy by showing that both Fornell and his daughter saw her and had a conversation with her that included parts of Gibbs internal dialogue. This made it more of a fanciful fantasy element than a full fledged sign of mental breakup. Ziva looked older because IRL she is but they did their best to give her the same look to indicate it the old Ziva.

    S06.E22: Robert Diaz

    Including two strong actors (Laila Robins and Brett Cullen) for a few minutes seems unlikely, so I assume both will play an important part next season.

    S06.E19: Rassvet

    When I try and translate a Russian sounding name, I first use an online conversion from Latin to Cyrillic alphabet and than use a Russian to English translation: rassvet -> рассвет ->dawn or daybreak

    S05.E12: The Beginning...

    As an adult woman who is 5'2" (and somehow has a lot of really tall friends who are over 6' tall), this is a ridiculous rationalization for recasting. I'm pretty sure that I manage to stand next to tall people without looking like a child. You are right of course and I did not explain my point accurately enough. Its the combination of Camren Bicondova still almost baby face with her height that would have made her look way too young. After all she started the series at 14 and changed very little when it ended. So for people who have followed her thru the series it would have been very hard to accept the time jump.

    S05.E12: The Beginning...

    I was also very critical of their decision to recast. I’m sure Camren would have been excellent. But... I think that their choice (Lili Simmons) was great! Eyes, cheekbones... Even the wig was good! 😮 At first I thought so too, especially in closeups, but then she was standing next to Alfred and Barbara, in the banquet, and I realized it was not the face age that was the problem but the height. While David Mazouz really shot up during the series, Camren Bicondova remaind her short 5' 2" and would have looked like a child next to them. Lili Simmons is 5' 7" and so much more convincing as Catwoman.
