What I'm Watching: NCIS

NCIS: Season 4, Episode 23 "Trojan Horse" (C+)

The main storyline of this episode, about the talkative cab driver, feels far too simplistic. The director's pursuit of her seemingly alive father is just too abstract, and unconnected to the show. The fact that NCIS considers Lauren Holly a lead actress on the show (discerned by the Emmy category submission) is strange, and besides some comical dialogue and a brief interesting relationship with Gibbs, the character of thet director adds little to the show. I am honestly way beyond lost and confused about the whole La Grenouille situation, and I don't really care too much. The ending promises a crazy finale two weeks from now, but as with last year, when Gibbs lost his memory, I am not that interested. Focusing solely on one cast member is not a smart move for this otherwise great ensemble show.
