Don’t get excited. I enjoy “NCIS” reruns as much as the next guy. The CBS colossus will go on forever, like “Bonanza” or “Dallas.” It’s “Mission: Impossible” for the exhausted. People love it, love it, love it. They’ve already spawned “NCIS: New Orleans” and “Los Angeles.” You know they’re working on Miami, or San Francisco, or Peoria next.
Tonight, “NCIS” classic, so to speak, left us with a cliffhanger. That’s if you believe Mark Harmon’s Gibbs is going to die in an Arab market. A little boy shot him twice. Gibbs is down, and there’s a lot of sand and dust. Don’t worry: Mark Harmon will be making “NCIS” shows well into the next century.
And what about Cote de Pablo? She left and starred in “The Dovekeepers” for CBS, which has now been cancelled. She doesn’t have anything else going right now except for a pretty bad looking thriller called “The 33” coming to theatres this fall. My guess is that Ziva makes a guest appearance or two next fall. Let’s see what happens.
