Missed NCIS last week? At least tonight's episode looks to be a good one, when Gibbs' (Mark Harmon) job appears to be in jeopardy with his former mentor Mike Franks is involved in a murder investigation - although we know they can't fire Gibbs right? Would they dare? On "Outlaws and In-Laws" the team must play family counselor to Franks in order to prevent a bloody international conflict.
On the last episode of NCIS, which was also its Halloween episode sans a costume for Abby (Pauley Perrette), some fans thought it was a little letdown procedural- and everything else-wise. The case was that of a prankster who was killed, and somehow Abby's lab was turned into a some sort of dumping ground for all of the victim's prank paraphernalia.
It looked to be suicide at first, but later on some people surfaced who looked suspicious, namely, ex-wife with a history, grumpy neighbor Mr. Rogers (yes, that's his name), muscle-man slash former squad mate in Iraq, and stepdaughter. In the end, it turned out that the stepdaughter did it, to get her grimy hands on her trust fund.
There were some good parts though, such as McGee's (Sean Murray) review of the dead prankster's skills and the reference to skinny jeans which explained why Abby wasn't in costume.
