I just finished watching both halves of the NCIS season finale.



I'm pissed at the writers for letting that ship blow up and for portraying our government as perfectly willing to lie to the American people and to let our troops die needlessly. I'm also upset that Gibbs is leaving the show. There's only two characters I love -- Gibbs and Abby -- and now not only is Gibbs gone, but the character I just can't stand will be in charge. I may have to stop watching as I don't think my adoration of Abby is enough to overcome that much exposure to Tony.

And what the heck is going on with television this particular season? So many shows are killing off major characters. Or having the good guys act outside the law and beat up the bad guys rather than follow the law themselves.

Well, I'm on a couple of NCIS & Abby communities and rumor has it that Harmon isn't really leaving -- that it'll be one of those "he's gone for a while, something happens, and then the character comes back" things. I'm not so sure that'll be the case -- and I do think that if he's really gone, the show'll be lucky to last more than one more season.

I fell asleep, darn it. Did someone get shot (& die)? Or is Gibbs the one you mentioned to be the only one leaving the show? And yeah, I, too find Tony rather annoying.

Well, no one on the team dies. Gibbs figures out what's going on but his superiors refuse to act on his intelligence and, as a result, large US Naval vessel gets blown up at sea (killing all personnel on board). Disgusted with the high command or whoever it is who allowed the bombs to go off, Gibbs resigns from NCIS. We last see him walking through a Mexican field and greeting his old boss (Gibbs' mentor and the previous leader of the NCIS team, who, years earlier, had quit under similar circumstances).

So yes, it appears Gibbs is leaving the show. Although come to think of it, that's what we were lead to believe the season before this one. And I know I'm not the only one who thinks without Harmon (Gibbs), the show will quickly lose its audience.

Whenever I see the phrase "L&O: SVU", I always read that as "Law and Order: Sport Utility Vehicle".

That's a common error. It's hard to type too. The only reliable solution I've found is to de-acronym the letters to make sure I have them in the correct order.
