NCIS Season 14 Episode 1 Review: Rogue

  • TVfanatic
Hello, fellow NCIS fans, and welcome to the post-Tony Dinozzo era! I will be your reviewer this season, and I'm happy to be here! And I'm also happy to say that NCIS Season 14 Episode 1 did not disappoint me at all.

Plus, there were some nostalgic treats for long-time fans like me! So hang on to your hats, because here we go!

The cold open focusing on WIlmer Valderrama's Agent Nick Torres was interesting; we're used to seeing happy people going along and then having tragedy strike (as happened shortly thereafter with the Campbells), but here Torres, aka Miguel, quite neatly turned the hit attempt right back on the goon.

It quickly established Torres as a smart, skilled man with excellent situational awareness and a rather impressive physicality that reminded me of Ziva David's combat skills. His takedown of the two goons after he arrived in D.C. reinforced that assessment.

NCIS Recap: Season 14 Premiere Fills Team Vacancy, Teases Jag Update

NCIS Recap: Season 14 Premiere Fills Team Vacancy, Teases Jag Update
If NCIS had spent any sizable chunk of its Season 14 premiere lamenting the departure of longtime team member Tony Dinozzo, that would have been a dreary affair. Instead, the series smartly focused on his irreplaceable nature, literally, by picking up months later with Gibbs dismissing the eighth probie sent his way to fill the vacancy.

By coming at “the elephant in the room” from a different, bigger-picture angle, it lent that much more weight to the moment that eventually did arrive, where McGee, with a nudge from Bishop, acknowledged that his trouble settling in at Tony’s old desk has

Cast of Spider-Man: The Animated Series reunite for War Of The Rocketmen

Fans of the 1990s’ Spider-Man: The Animated Series, rejoice - the stellar voice cast are teaming up for new show War Of The Rocketmen…

For children of the 1990s, and presumably those who parented children in the 1990s, and anyone who just loves a good superhero animation, Spider-Man: The Animated Series is swathed in good will and nostalgia.

The show, which serialised Spidey’s legacy in 30-minute chunks, was undeniably excellent. We recall a particularly brilliant arc about Morbius The Vampire.

The cast reunited for a panel at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo over the weekend to discuss the show’s twentieth anniversary, and announce their new project.

"You are the current avatar of this Marvel deity. This is our Iliad. This is our Odyssey," recalled Spidey-voicing actor Christopher Daniel Barnes, speaking of the responsibility of the role. "It touches something universal in us. When you get the chance to

'Heathers': An oral history

'Heathers': An oral history
“Do you think there’s ever been another movie like Heathers?” Winona Ryder asks in her tiny, forever-a-kid voice, and then listens quietly. She’s genuinely curious. Your brain races through the obvious choices. Mean Girls, Clueless, Jawbreaker—teen-girl comedies with a drop of caustic in their lip gloss. But in 25 years, no high school movie has ever come close to the bloodthirsty wit and sweet-faced nihilism of Heathers, the 1989 satire about an Ohio high school where suicide becomes a scrunchie-level fad. “I looove this movie—to the point where I talk about it like I’m not even in it,

Adam Sandler to Produce Summer School Remake

Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions is getting back into the remake game as they have reportedly landed a deal to produce Paramount's long-gestating remake of the '80s comedy classic Summer School. The project has been in development since 2005, believe it or not, with Transformers and Star Trek screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci most recently taking a shot at a script. The last remake that Happy Madison set up was the prison football comedy The Longest Yard, which Sandler himself starred in. He is not expected to star in this movie, although he will be on board as a producer. According to THR, this was originally the brainchild of producer Jordan Kerner (The Mighty Ducks, The Smurfs), who wanted to change the teacher to be a real hard ass who ends up "squaring off against one mischievous student." That definitely doesn't seem to be keeping in spirit wiith the original,

Look Sharp

Today marks the DVD release of the penultimate season of Jag (that's Judge Advocate General, for the uninitiated). For ten seasons, CBS chronicled the impeccably styled David James Elliott, Catherine Bell, Patrick Labyorteaux, John M. Jackson, Karri Turner as they loved, argued, pined, and applied the stipulations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and international law. Canceled in 2005, it is the only television show thus far to have been officially endorsed by the Department of Defense, the United States Navy, and the United States Marine Corps. As a tribute to this fallen hero, we studied the Spring 2010 runways for signs of its influence. Below, some looks from Alexander Wang, Loewe, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Rag & Bone suitable for conducting a court-martial.
