NCIS: Driven

Pauley Perrette(S04E11) There are a few ways that a show gets put on the list to be covered here. Having a truckload of "buzz" never hurts. A ratings juggernaut is hard to ignore. Being a favorite of one of the writers helps. And, as is the case here, the readers asking for it is always good. Over the past few weeks I've noticed the question of why we don't cover NCIS keeps coming up, so I talked to the powers that be, and moving forward I'll be following the show here every week. That said, on with the show.

I'll go ahead and start out with my one complaint with the episode. The robotic Hummer was a little too good. There is a lot of exciting research going on with unmanned vehicles, but I thought this one was a little over the top. We didn't really need to see that amazing demo to kick things off to get it. One small nitpick in an otherwise terrific episode though.

Family Guy Peter kills Yogi(S05E03) This is more like it. After two below average episodes to start the season, I thought this third installment of Family Guy was much better. The overall story of the mega-corp superstore coming to town and killing all the other businesses wasn't particularly novel. South Park did that a couple years ago in "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes". It did serve as a good backdrop for some funny stuff though. And really, any time someone wants to put the boots to Wal-Mart, I'm ok with it.

Things started out on a good note with Red Dawn the musical and the who's that kind of drunk bit. I thought the roller skating montage was well done too. And they just kept coming. Pepperidge Farms remembers, the Ice Man's trail to the gay club, and Hummer guy were all good. "Yeah, Rumsfeld!"
