We get a taste of the supporting characters but not enough obviously to let us know what makes them act the way they do. Sam and Michelle arrange a meeting, and even Hetty also takes part in the preparations; Sam and Michelle send their regrets, but G attends and meets the other party. Season 5, Episode 15 February 25, 2014 Season 5, Episode 15 February 25, 2014 Sam and Callen go to Mexico to find a retired assassin they encountered on their first case together. True it has no gibbs, tony or elf lord, but the characters are growing on me, and Linda Hunt who plays the boss is a good actress and quite amusing in her role. His character arc was incorporated from the beginning, and you can tell, as it is worked very fluidly into the regular cases.
By taking this character another direction, having him have a rather typical background, as compared to Callen, we can explore how his skills take him places you wouldn't expect. I have never in my life ever wished failure on anyone or anything and I don't feel I need to now. The audience enjoys watching them no matter the current difficulties, whether it's just a threat to national security or literally saving the world. Why not move it back to Tuesday? Now I want to watch stories about people who are unique and unusual and earthy and human. This is merely beefcake without any redeeming characteristics.
It wasn't until one of her fellow secondary characters was killed that she really came into her own. Pulling in Oscar winner Linda Hunt to play Hetty was a masterstroke. Her development really kept you watching during the first couple years of the show as you could see her character come into her personality. There is still that dynamic of banter. No one was trying to outdo the other we.
And, of course let's not forget Hetti, what a trip she is. The producers and writers are making good choices for this show as far as killing off characters, eliminating dead weight and developing the areas of back story and character that we love or have come to love. Anyway, if you are a fan, buy it here at Amazon, it's worth every penny. Kensi and Deeks go undercover as cult members to rescue a former Department of Defense employee brainwashed into revealing classified information, as the rest of the team works to prevent the cult from selling the government secrets. As we watched we found their characters balanced each other out nicely as well.
Season 7 of course delivers, and how does it ever deliver, with action, excitement, undercover work and of course comedic moments. Now Deeks is simply part of 'Kensi and Deeks the partnership' and I no longer wish for his sudden irreversible death. I hope they bring Hetty back full time - she has everyone's back and they have hers. The other characters look to her, respect her, protect her. As soon as they do I feel like it's the death keel of the show. The second major flaw is that somehow this got made.
Revealing the teams history in their special opps missions would be awesome. No wonder the ratings are down. Callen and Sam head out to question his wife, while Deeks is left behind. I don't think the acting is bad and some of the guys are endearing but the women's roles are either terminally bland or weird. None of those qualities are included here, and all the things that made the other copycats so easily ignored are! But when it got here , I knew it was not good.
What kind of a joke is this? While checking the site, G and Sam find a clue, for which Eric finds a connection, who gives a lead, which G and Sam pursue; Kensi, in Afghanistan, smells a mouse; Eric and Nell go flying while Deeks and Granger head into the field, where they catch an intruder; Nell does some nice work on a psycho; Eric and Nell stay in touch with Kensi; the team find the pieces of the puzzle and make sense of them, and the bad guy goes for a plea bargain. They took Hetty out of the picture and put in Mosely. The show could be so much more without the one upmanship. Hanna and Callen have a buddy buddy relationship in the tradition of Dinozzo and McGee. Daniela Ruah does Kensi justice in all the right places. I have to admit I hated Marty Deeks, though I wasn't sad to see the back of Nate Getz either. They've slowly gotten some chemistry.
I was a little shocked when they added Nell as I thought Eric did a fine job without her but Hetty really made the addition work. I'd rather have Linda Hunt because she is a true original. Gibbs is more direct and impatient. Other than those minor changes, it doesn't need much. She is definitely unlike Gibbs in many ways.
Meanwhile, Kensi's holiday spirit changes after she receives a surprise Christmas gift. I'm sure the caterers are tops! Working undercover with advanced technology, these highly trained agents readily risk their lives to bring down their targets. And having Director Vance and Abby make short crossovers is excellent. She's a rich, interesting actor and her character here has a great backstory. The writers seem to have given the go ahead to all the cast to be their most sarcastic and over the top in their interaction. The drama dropped off pretty sharply last year, so the network may be thinking of winding it down. The Romanian war criminal is on the run.
