    New TV season

    What are your thoughts about the opening episodes of your favorite TV programs?
    I've seen the NCIS and Castle episodes. Maybe I'm getting jaded. I was disappointed in both shows.

    NCIS seemed sort of "laid back", almost like Gibbs is getting ready to retire.

    Most tv series I like start out great for a couple of years and then they get sort of tired. Used to lie Nashville, Big Brother, Dancing with the stars and then it's like, "why am I wasting my time like this?"

    I am just patiently waiting for Downton Abbey. Not much on TV do I watch on the basic channels.

    We watched Castle and didn't love it. I'm on some TV comment boards and reactions vary from great to awful. Don't watch NCIS.

    Aw, if Gibbs retires he needs to take the blond with the black eyebrows with him. I want Zeva back anyway.

    If Gibbs retires the show is done.

    Was disappointed in how fast the show went and ended on "under the dome!"
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !

    NCIS is my favorite- With Jon Cryer becoming a regular I was wondering about Duckie's role. Every time that Gibbs has a close call and see's his daughter he is a bit subdued but it doesn't last long. I still can't stand Bishop she's too mousy. They could replace her with a 2x4 and you wouldn't notice. I like NCIS New Orleans but the one with Hetty is gotten dull. kind of tired of the G story line so now I watch Castle. I read some where that Beckett is pregnant to expect cameo shots of her. Waiting to see Hawaii 5 0 and Bones new shows. The only other show I watch on regular TV is Big Bang.

    I was rather excited about Heroes Reborn as I really liked the original Heroes series. Granted, I missed the first fifteen minutes of the show last night, but I was having a hard time following it. I'll try again next week but I hope this isn't going to be a bust.

    Watched NCIS....not sure what's wrong there, but it misses the beat.....watched SCANDAL, which I was really engrossed in last year....the background music was loud and annoying!!!!!!!! Why suddenly do all the drama programs have this weird, original music in the background....so distracting......wait, do I hear music while I'm doing this? NOT!

    We're patiently awaiting the return of Better Call Saul. I think that is the best series in ages with characters from Breaking Bad appearing and telling how they got to the Breaking Bad stage of life.

    I agree. There was something 'off' about it...can't say what it was.

    I do hope Ducky continues as an integral part of the show.....always liked the epis where the storyline centered on him.
    David McCallum turned 82 a few days ago...can you believe that!

    I don't care how many tv channels ya have, there's still nothing to watch on tv. I'd like to know what happened to all the quilting shows. i.e. fons & porter, Eleanor burns?

    I too, wish Zeva would come back but I don't think there's any chance of that. I just can't get a feel for Bishop, she just doesn't seem to fit, at least for me. NCIS New Orleans is okay but it is my least favorite of the 3 series. I really like NCIS Los Angeles & I love Heddy. I too am getting tired of the story line for callen. Maybe these writers are running out of ideas. Must be difficult to come up with exciting eipsodes each & every week. I do LOVE Scandal though & have been hooked from the very beginning.

    I watched NCIS and loved it. Gibbs had just been through quite and ordeal - getting shot point blank by a boy he thought he was saving. And Gibbs loves children so much. Going through the trauma of the surgery and the therapy for his knee, all this combined should have an effect on him. I think that as the season progresses we will see Gibbs returning more to his "Boss" ways but with a tempering, allowing him to show more depth and emotions.

    And I like Bishop - it would have been almost impossible to cast another Ziva or Kate type. I think the producers were wise to go against character and cast someone totally different. And I have noticed that she is getting feistier than when she first came on board. Remember when she rebelled against the score Gibbs gave her on a testing situation? She just wants to be her own person.

    I also watched Heroes Return. I did not watch the original and so can't compare it but I found the pilot to be very long and drawn out. Maybe the future shows will move faster - I know the pilot had to set up the different characters and factions so will stay with it for several more episodes to see how it progresses.

    I have Blindspot on my dvr. Haven't watched it yet but hope to get to it this weekend.

    I'm with you. Not much humor anymore without Zeva.

    My husband and I both thought the first episode of NCIS had a bit to be desired. Of course everyone knew Gibbs would survive, but the opener kind of stunk. We both also agree about that blond, whatever her name is, her acting, certainly didn't get any better as time went on, did it? We were REALLY hoping that she'd be gone this year, but no such luck!!! She and the woman on NCIS New Orleans just don't fit in. Neither one of them could act their way out of a paper bag.

    I keep wondering if Gibbs' "team" will discover at some point that Bishop's husband is a secret spy, like the storyline in Blacklist (think that is the name of the show w/James Spader). Surely her character will bring something more interesting to the show.

    Did not like Heroes at all. Jumped all over the place and I don't like subtitles. NCIS was boring. Curious to see how Limitless continues. Lost interest in NCIS - Los Angeles a long time ago. Would like to see CSI - Cyber again. Agree that Castle was ODD. We still don't really know what happened to Castle when he was gone for those months, and now Becket is acting odd.

    I watched that last night. At the beginning, I was overwhelmed with the technology...too much movement on the screen.
    I continued to watch and really got into the show as it progressede. Will watch another epi to see how it goes.

    I actually thought Jon Cryer brought something new to the story and the potential interplay. What makes it odd is that I don't like Jon Cryer (or maybe just the characters he has played). My husband thinks that they need to add the Coast Guard Investigative services and base it in San Francisco Bay Area. I think the traffic is bad enough here allready
