    You are aware that Coast Guard Abbie actually works for the Coast Guard Investigative Service CGIS, not NCIS. Her position would be equal to Gibbs so going to work for him would be a demotion for her.

    Yes, I'm aware she works for a different branch of the military and that she is a senior agent. My suggestion was strictly tongue-in-cheek.

    So the new girl debuted tonight. Typical "new character" introduction. No trusts her. She tries to hard. Pisses everyone off. Then she solves the case.

    Emily Wickersham is nice to look at, but I'm not sure I'll warm to the character.

    Chevy Chase totally tanked miserably as a late night talk show host. I don't think he lasted a week before getting canceled. I've never seen an actor with terminal stage fright like he exhibited, which was strange considering he was used to working in front of live audiences. He did find success in movies, however, but not right away.

    David Caruso absolutely bombed as a movie actor. He floundered for quite a while until CSI Miami came along, IIRC. I dropped both CSI Miami and N.Y. from my recording list because they became simply ridiculous. Nowhere in the world will you have lab rats out in the wild chasing bad guys with guns.

    I have no idea whatever happened to McLean Stevenson once he left M*A*S*H so whatever success he had after the show is completely unknown to me (perhaps Broadway?). I preferred the show with Harry Morgan anyway, although it went slightly downhill after Trapper John (Wayne Rogers) left.

    Like the new gal. Like that she is married ( or is she??? don't think she ever answered the question).

    I'm betting she is not married.

    True, could be a ploy to get guys to leave her alone.

    Nah, that'd be way too easy for this show. I'm guessing she might not be married any more, but there's some sort of traumatic back story that we're eventually going to see.

    He had a spectacularly unsuccessful sitcom called "Hello, Larry" about a radio DJ.

    I think we're going to see Tim get interested in this one, rather than Tony. She's already over halfway toward being a female Tim.

    I got the vibe of "Married to Flynn" until it was made clear she wasn't when they mentioned a wife.

    Once again proving that female characters are difficult to write. She certainly was written to impress--we must oblige.

    I know she was also written to be likeable. I know this because the other characters kept smiling at her and each other. I suppose I should emotionally toe the line.

    Between this super woman and Abby, there really is no need for anyone else. They could be all the crime fighters the Navy ever needs. And so much quirk. Autism: because smart people.

    So we have the brainiac faction of Abby, McGee and new girl, and the "street smart" faction of Gibbs and Tony.

    As for the new girl, she seems likable with no oddball traits that are highly offensive. Maybe a bit lacking in field experience, but has some background so she's not completely out of it on the move.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing more of her.

    Guess we'll know more next week.

    After several episodes with Emily Wickersham, I finally figured out what bothered me about her character. Her personality is very similar to that of Abby, though without the Goth overtones.

    She is nice to look at but for some reason I find her brown eyebrows conflicting with her blond hair. I am already tired of her character.
