What I'm Watching: NCIS

NCIS: Season 5, Episode 11 "Tribes" (B-)

This episodes tries to tackle the question of religious persecution a little too neatly, positioning its players far too decisively. Ducky is ethically pure, Ziva is compassionate and understanding, Palmer is naive and ignorant, and Gibbs just does not care about anything. This show has had some of its best moments both dramatically and comically, but I think that such a serious plotline might not be the route best taken by this show. This episode does show that Cote de Pablo and Michael Wetherly work wonders together as Ziva and Tony, quizzing each other on movies (I love it!) while investigating their cases. This is the last episode for now due to the strike.
