NCIS Sneak Peeks: Thankful For Great TV

NCIS Photo s13e10 Blood Brothers

Last week, NCIS shocked audiences when Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham) split with husband, Jake (Jamie Bamber), after finding out he was having an affair.

Every aspect of the episode excelled, right down to the reveal that Ellie (an Oklahoma girl) drives a pickup truck.

But, the most profound scenes were between Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Jake, because Harmon’s eyes showed that Gibbs really wanted to deck the wandering husband.

Equally impressive was how Harmon showed that Gibbs would have taken all of the hurt away from Bishop, if he only could find a way.

There is no better acting on television than the acting done by this cast.

Expect that to continue tonight when Ellie is at home in Oklahoma with mom, Barbara (guest star Lindsay Wagner).   As they wait for Ellie’s dad and grandparents to arrive from Wyoming for Thanksgiving, Ellie chops wood while Barbara gives her relationship advice.

Jake continues to call, but Bishop does not answer.  When she finally has enough of the ringing annoyance, there is a great scene that shows what many people would like to do with a cell phone at some point or another.

Also tonight, the Secretary of the Navy asks NCIS to help locate a bone marrow donor for a sailor with leukemia.  His two siblings were Marines killed in the line of duty.

While most of the NCIS team make plans to spend Thanksgiving at Ducky’s (David McCallum), Gibbs (Mark Harmon) heads to Oklahoma to check on Bishop.

Perhaps he is overwhelmed by holiday spirit or too much fresh Oklahoma air, but Gibbs tries to get Bishop to open up about her feelings.  He quotes Gibbs Rule #28, “If you need help, ask.”

So, last week, Gibbs was giving marital advice, and this week, he is discussing feelings.  Where is Leroy Jethro Gibbs and who is this person who looks like him?

Seriously though, he is letting Bishop see what the audience has known for over twelve years…Gibbs may be a man of few words, but every word he says is important.

This year, as every year, the NCIS audience can be grateful for many things…especially for a show that delivers quality each week.

NCIS also stars Pauley Perrette (who, along with Harmon, is nominated for a People’s Choice Award), Michael Weatherly,  Sean Murray, Rocky Carroll and Brian Dietzen.

Tonight’s guest stars are Joe Spano (as FBI very special agent Tobias Fornell), Ryan Doom, Patricia Bethune, Grantham Coleman, Harry Van Gorkum, Jack Mikesell, Stuart McLean, Eric Nelsen and Scott Roe.

Tonight’s episode, “Blood Brothers,” was written by Jennifer Corbett and directed by Arvin Brown.

NCIS airs tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

LIMITLESS Sneak Peek: Dad’s Compelling Demand


LIMITLESS is at its best when it has some fun with its characters, as it did last week. But it is its most compelling when it turns serious, as it does this week.

Last week, Brian Finch really, really, really wanted his own FBI “headquarters!” CJC head Naz would prefer to call it simply an office, but after a month of being bugged, cajoled, and promised that he would deliver the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted criminals within two weeks with the help of his own team, Naz finally gave in. And Brian and his rag-tag team nearly got all ten of them. Brian also got to enjoy his “H.Q.” although he had to add his own “!”

Back at his fab FBI-provided apartment, Brian entertained his family. Everyone loved the accommodations and Brian’s cough-catered-cough gourmet meal, except for Brian’s father. Brian’s father was noticeably distant. In fact, his father later revealed he felt distant from his son because his son had always been honest with him, and now Brian was being anything but honest with him. His father brought in a box of things he had collected over the years to return to Brian, and at that point Brian finally told his father about using NZT.

And this leads us to tonight’s episode of LIMITMESS, “Arm-ageddon,” when Brian has a heart-to-heart talk with his father, and his father lays down some hard truth about the limited drug trial that Brian is on and what may be its unimagined consequences for his son. Dad’s very compelling demand is that Brian stop working for the FBI. Meanwhile, it seems evil forces have begun hacking prosthetic arms, affecting the life of Agent Boyle’s former military buddy, who is accused of murder. And, of course, Boyle asks for Brian’s help in clearing him.

Watch the clip below and catch tonight’s new episode of LIMITLESS at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

NCIS: NEW ORLEANS Sneak Peeks: Wind of Remembrance

NCIS New Orleans Photo s2e10 Billy and the Kid

Tonight on NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, the team revisits the horror of Hurricane Katrina.

For those unaware of the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, here are a few facts.  Winds blew at 140 miles per hour.  Massive flooding accompanied the hurricane, and the roaring water breached the levees.  Hundreds of thousands of people were driven from their homes in the states along the Gulf.

Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana were devastated.  New Orleans, in particular, was shattered as it is surrounded by water and much of the city’s elevation is 6 feet below sea level.

Although the city has been recovering due to the tenacity of its citizens, there are areas like parts of the 9th Ward that still have a long road to recovery.  But the tragic loss of life will continue to bring a collective sadness to Crescent City residents.

Those sad memories get a fictional tribute tonight on NCIS: NEW ORLEANS.  Now a decade after Katrina, Pride (Scott Bakula) and Lasalle (Lucas Black) uncover new evidence from the first murder case that they worked as partners.

A Marine is murdered, and the investigation uncovers clues that track back to Dwayne and Christopher’s original case from 10 year ago.  They had been investigating right before the storm made landfall, but the walls of water washed away the evidence.

On a lighter note, the NCIS: NEW ORLEANS team takes time away from crime to celebrate Thanksgiving at Dwayne’s bar, and it looks like Scott Bakula will be playing piano!

NCIS: NEW ORLEANS also stars Zoe McLellan, Rob Kerkovich, Shalita Grant, Daryl ‘Chill’ Mitchell and CCH Pounder.

Guest stars on tonight’s episode, “Billy and the Kid,” are Alexandra Metz, Christopher Berry, Kenneth Brown, Bowie Hamilton, Patrick Reginald Walker, Ninja Devoe, Amy Grasse and Donald Link.  “Billy and the Kid” was written by Sam Humphrey and directed by Mary Lou Belli.

NCIS: NEW ORLEANS airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.


NCIS LA 2 Photo s7e8 Defectors

When a teenage girl disappears, the team at NCIS: LOS ANGELES believes that terrorists may have recruited her.

In Ops, Nell (Renée Felice Smith) and Eric (Barrett Foa) explain that Pedro Gomez, a bakery delivery driver, has killed CPA Lucas Belridge in an automobile accident in front of a Naval recruitment center.

Gomez remains in a coma, but nothing suspicious in found in the delivery truck.

What is suspicious is a piece of paper that LAPD found in Belridge’s Prius. NCIS: LOS ANGELES has been brought into the case because the note had “Luck Mon Bod Roll Din” and “96 Sky” written on it.

Sam observes that the note is the phonetic spelling of “Luqman Badr Al Din,” the name of a terrorist on the Department of Homeland Security Terrorist Watch List.

One of the LAPD officers responding to the accident scene was a former Marine and linguistics specialist who had helped identify Badr Al Din

Luqman Badr Al Din’s identity had been so suppressed that even the CIA did not know who he was until a few months ago.

Following a lead, NCIS: LA goes to the home of Jahmir Yacoob (guest star Arthur Darbinyan) where they are confronted by Jahmir’s wife, Mira (guest star Anjali Bhimani) and the couple’s youngest daughter, Adeela (guest star Jenna Seede).

Mira mistakes NCIS: LOS ANGELES for the LAPD whom she had called when her older daughter, Zahra (guest star Ella Arro) was taken.  She pleads with the NCIS:LA team to help them find their child.  NCIS: LOS ANGELES agrees to investigate the situation.

There is another investigation underway at the same time, this one at the LAPD.  The IAB case against Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) that has been brewing for months culminates in his arrest for murder by the LAPD.  He leaves a speechless Kensi (Daniela Ruah) on the sidewalk as he is taken away in handcuffs.

NCIS: LOS ANGELES also stars Chris O’Donnell, LL COOL J, Linda Hunt and Miguel Ferrer.

Other guest stars on tonight’s episode, “Defectors,” are Nicole Steinwedel, Marlane Barnes, Laura Niemi, James Wong. Rishi Arya, Anne Griffin, Adam Lieberman, Cesar Garcia, Jonathan Roumie, Jesse Bernstein and Stefanie Malouf.

“Defectors” was written by producer Jordana Lewis Jaffe, and directed by Dennis Smith.

NCIS: LOS ANGELES airs tonight at 10pm ET/PT on CBS.

SUPERGIRL Sneak Peek: Unlearning Curve

Supergirl Photo s1e5 How Does She Do it

Last week’s episode of SUPERGIRL, “Livewire,” was switched with tonight’s out of sensitivies regarding the events in Paris, so viewers should keep that in perspective if the timeline looks a bit off.

While James (Mehcad Brooks) and Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) had become a couple (again) on last week’s “Livewire” episode, tonight will furnish the explanation.  James already has stated that there was “nothing he wouldn’t do for that woman” with regard to Lucy.

Despite his and Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) obvious attraction to each other, it appears as though he still may be a little too in love with Lois Lane’s sister to give up on their relationship…yet.

Also, that unexpected kiss on Kara’s cheek from Winn (Jeremy Jordan) or the reveal that his father (assumedly Toymaker, aka Winslow Schott) is in prison also will not have “happened” yet in tonight’s episode, so expect their relationship to be a step earlier in its progression.

Thirdly, the revelation that Kara’s foster father, Jeremiah Danvers (Dean Cain) volunteered to work for Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) to save Kara is still unknown to Alex (Chyler Leigh) and SUPERGIRL on tonight’s show.

So, now that everyone temporarly has “unlearned” what they learned last week, what is in store for SUPERGIRL this evening?

Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), probably a little less sympathetic than last week, will foist her son, Carter (Levi Miller), onto Kara making babysitting part of her assistant’s duties.

While that violates Human Resources rules in most companies, it has much larger ramifications for National City.  Facing a series of bombings, SUPERGIRL’s attentions need to be focused on stopping the perpetrators instead of watching Cat’s son.

She may get a hand from an unexpected source, billionaire entrepreneur Maxwell Lord (recurring guest star Peter Facinelli) whose penchant for inventions could come in handy.

Happy (belated) birthdays to Calista Flockhart (November 11) and Jeremy Jordan (November 20), and a little scoop…a new character will be on the canvas soon…Adam Foster.  Foster  will be portrayed by Benoist’s fellow GLEE alum, Blake Jenner, her real-life husband.

Other guest stars on “How Does She Do It” are Briana Venskus, Rich Ceraulo, Scott Michael Campbell, Tristin Mays, Carly Nykanen, Jay Jackson, Stephanie Czajkowski and Renee Pezzotta.

Tonight’s SUPERGIRL was written by Yahlin Chang and producer, Ted Sullivan, and directed by Thor Freudenthal.


Watch SUPERGIRL tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

ELEMENTARY Sneak Peek: Back to Work


Morland Holmes kept his promise and got Sherlock and Joan reinstated with the NYPD. In this week’s ELEMENTARY, the pair are heading back to work.

After meeting up with Marcus, they begin investigating the double murder of two men who looked alike, which leads them all into the world of facial recognition technology.
