Discussion Thread for NCIS Episode 12x09: "Grounded"

Hello All! It's finally here! Jamie's NCIS debut! I've heard this show's been around awhile and is kind of popular so I'm expecting good things, including Jamie gaining a few more fans. I've already told a friend of mine not familiar with Jamie to keep an eye on Bishop's husband. ;)

Please come back after the show and share your thoughts. As zegeekgirl mentioned earlier, Jamie is due back on the NCIS set soon to reprise his role and there may be some additional appearances after that so we are eager to read what you all think.

And there seems to be an NCIS/BSG trend on CBS tonight: Jamie's former co-star, Dean Stockwell, will be guest starring on NCIS: New Orleans. OK, CBS is promoting it as a Quantum Leap reunion with Scott Bakula, but, still! :)

Not really an NCIS watcher, but I have to say that was definitely one of the more entertaining episodes I've seen. Nicely interwoven (and only slightly contrived!) method of getting the whole team to work together when two of them are on lock-down. I thought we'd go the whole episode without Ducky turning up for a while there. (McCallum just reminds me that NO ONE apparently streams The Man From U.N.C.L.E. at the moment, and that's an awful shame.)

It'll be quite fun seeing Jamie turn up as Jake a few more times, at least; they've set up a context to examine his and Ellie's relationship in a way that I don't think this show ever really has with a principal character. (And maybe the show's audience isn't used to - some of them seem awfully angry about certain changes - but hey, in your 12th season, a show's gotta try new things.) I did look up some background info before I started watching, though, and just based on what I gathered in the ep they may have retconned their first meeting a little. ;)

(Also, I'd be lying if I didn't cop to applauding the appearance of Edie McClurg. I love that she's gone from adorably daffy to adorably cranky.)

Oh... sorry, were you expecting a picspam? How thoughtless of me. ;)

I started watching NCIS about 4 years ago. I like the character interaction. Gibbs is my favorite, so I was particularly interested to see the scene where Jake meets Gibbs. Jamie was perfect in his reactions there. I think this is my favorite of Jamie's guest appearances (that I've seen). Jake and Ellie made a very believable married couple and the scenes with Tony were done well. Jake can handle DiNozzo's banter. I did have to chuckle to myself when Tony referenced Inspector Poirot. I'm definitely looking forward to Jamie's return appearances.

I thought it worth mentioning that Jamie appears in one of the special features on the NCIS season 12 DVD set. The special feature is about this episode, "Grounded," and is called "Pre-Flight Jitters: Shooting on Location." Jamie has comments about the episode and others have nice things to say about having Jamie on the show.
