NCIS Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 16 Review: Old Tricks

Finally, some closure.

It was a good mix of light and dark as quite a few hanging storylines rightfully got resolved on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 16.

Also, recapping was artfully woven in throughout. I guess you have to do that with only a couple of episodes in a month and a half. Otherwise, people forget.

The fun part was watching Deeks and Kensi take down the two aging con artists hoping to prey on the residents of a nursing home.

O'Boyle and Ginger, played by Martin Mull and Debra Jo Rupp, seemed to view what they were doing as almost a public service.

O'Boyle: It's not a scam. They bequeath that money to us.

Ginger: These people have no families. Their inheritance just goes to the government.

O'Boyle: I say better us than them.

25 Years in La Part 3: Showtime, the Silverado, and the rise of Ain't It Cool
The first and most important thing that happened as a result of the staging of "Sticks and Stones" at the Met Theater as part of the Act One Festival was that Scott Swan and I got our first agent. Barbara Baruch worked for Ambrosio/Mortimer, a smaller boutique agency at the time, and from the moment we met her, she seemed like what I imagined an agent to be. She was nurturing, she was a cheerleader, she was a ballbuster, and she was always, always, always in our corner. Our time with her was unfortunately too short, and by the time the agency imploded in accusations of embezzlement, we were already repped by Gersh out of New York. Barbara was first, though, and she was the first one to start pushing people to come see our show and to read our work. The strangest thing about those early days is

This Week on Stage: James Bond on Broadway, 'Wicked' turns 10
Who says it’s not easy being green? Well, Kermit the Frog did actually, but if you’re literal high-flyer Elphaba in the musical Wicked, it’s pretty darn boss, especially give that the teen-adored Stephen Schwartz musical (which received mixed reviews upon opening in 2003) just celebrated 10 years on Broadway this week. (EW just featured leads Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel on our annual Reunions cover). And unless Halloween rendered you deaf from overzealous trick-or-treaters, Broadway became all abuzz with the debuts of real-life, smoldering couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz in a revival of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, but

They’re All Alright: See That ’70s Show Cast Reunite
Thanks to Instagram, Danny Masterson shared photo evidence that the kids of That ’70s Show still hang out. Sure, it's not in Topher Grace's basement, but they appear to be having a sing-along (We're all alright! We're all alright!) It would be rude to complain that Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) is sorely missing, but she might just be in the kitchen popping popcorn. Never forget:
