Father and Son
ttapola from Finland
12 May 2011
As foreshadowed in the season opener, Anthony DiNozzo Sr. makes his
return to the series. Naturally, Robert Wagner delivers in the role.
Equally naturally, much hilarity ensues because of Tony's uneasy
relationship with his father. As an added bonus, we get Bruce
Boxleitner of Babylon 5 fame in a solid if not especially memorable
"Navy Person Involved in the Case of the Week" role.
This is an assured, good, 7/10 episode, that doesn't quite earn that
8th star because, while it was about time for Ziva to don an evening
gown again so that the title sequence makers can finally let go of
*that* image from season 5 premiere, there really is nothing new here.
The plot offers little surprise and the "One Night in Paris" mystery
just keeps dragging on. It has been made clear time and time again that
Tony and Ziva care about each other, but *conclusive* proof of whether
they are protective of each other out of friendship or love has not
Character development between a show regular and a character for whom
this is just the second appearance ever can hardly be considered
significant. That said, the viewer is served enough humor, tension and
action to be left feeling satisfied.
