    Re: Navy NCIS

    I've had trouble over the years with how the writers resolve the ending of episodes, but the episode that aired 2/1/11 takes the cake.

    McGee suffered from identity theft where $10,000 was charged against his credit card using his home computer. Tony resolved it by revealing it was the 12-14 yr old son of McGee's landlady. The kid tells McGee - Hey, don't sweat it - you're only liable for $50.00 and the three of them laugh and head off to Game Stop. Uh...the theft wasn't against McGee, it was against the credit card company - a very large corporation with very many lawyers - none of whom give a pass to theft of $10,000. When, not if, they discover the perpetrator, they will sue McGee's landlady. And since McGee didn't report his knowledge of the theft, they can probably charge him as an accessory.

    What ticks me off is that the writers wrote off the theft as a joke, but in real life it isn't and there would be consequences. I know it's fiction, but, jeez...if they are going to insert real life situations, they should address them as real life situations, not jokes.

    Yeah I was a bit surprised at how they pooh pawed the fraud thing off as well.

    Add me to the list of viewers who was disappointed at how they handled the smart aleck identity theft kid. Big corporations do not slough off $10,000 losses so easily. Not a good example for any law enforcement official to condone.

    My 13yo watched the show last night, and I could think was, "I hope he doesn't get any ideas..."

    Yeah, I also thought the ending was lame.

    While the ending may have been lame, next week's episode is one that I've been looking forward to for a long time! We will

    Seems to me that Tony has been getting kinda chunky lately. I wonder now that McGee is trim Tony will be come the Fat Boy?

    Re: Navy NCIS

    Since it was mentioned previously how lame some of the stories can be I thought I would comment on the entire story arc from the last year where Gibbs who was a Marine sniper and killed his wife and daughter's killer just happened to be found what 25 yrs later by the killers children. There are so many plot holes that boggle the mind that I just didn't buy the story but went with the flow. I guess the writers felt they had to close out the story but I felt it lacked a very good satisfactory ending. In fact the entire story arc felt very forced.
