Can We Have Our Show Back Now?

NCIS Scoop: Cote de Pablo to Exit This Fall, Producers Promise 'Appropriate Closure' for Ziva

I just saw that article on the headlines on Yahoo. I makes me a happy person. Maybe I can actually add NCIS back to my DVR list after removing this past season.

*hopeful look with fingers and toes crossed*

This totally made my day! Thanks so much for sharing - I have limited net access this week and would likely have missed it if it didn't show up on my friends page. I completely agree, and am keeping everything crossed that we go back to story lines involving more dead petty officers and less TIVA drama.

I know... I want to get back to Navy related stuff instead of Mossad and International Intrigue and TIVA.

I like the idea of Ziva and Code de Pablo is a beautiful woman. But ... (Knew that was coming, right?) I'm tired to death of her angst and attitude. If I were SFA and she treated me the way she (Ziva) treats Tony, she'd be buried under a hail of reprimands and write-ups.

I, too, would like to get back to cases.

I was okay with Ziva in the beginning. It was after the Rivken thing that my okay-ness with the character disappeared. Then when they fast tracked her citizenship and she was given a badge with the snap of a finger, I was like, "HELL NO." Then it went really downhill as they started playing the TIVA thing and Ziva related international storylines to the loss of what I really liked about the show.

I never really cared for the way she was always, I'll kill you with a paperclip. Sorta turned me off the character. And I'm tired of all the international stuff too.

I was absolutely delighted to read this news this evening. I admit, I liked Ziva when she first joined but as time went on and the route her character was heading down, added to the fact that Cote was becoming more and more irritating in interviews and articles, I've grown to loathe both her and the character. No tears shed here - I'm glad she's going! Now, maybe, we can get back to NCIS as it once was ;) fingers/eyes/legs crossed.

The news made me so happy. :)

Hopefully the writers will pull it together and figure out what made the show good in the first place.

I'm with you on that one dinozzo111, apart from the fact that after the Rivkin ep everything started to be Ziva-centric with mossad thrown into the mix at every turn, CdP was becoming more and more diva with a lot of overacting in interviews too.

But hell, she's out of our hair now. Let's hope we can get back to the core 4 with good stories and character development. Would love to see Dorneget brought back into the mix

I was drifting quickly away from the show and this may pull me back.

A lot of the tiva/pro-ziva crowd are quite angry by the fact that CdP left it to the last minute to make public she wasn't returning; and consider it both immature and unprofessional (those were some of the comments read on tumblr/twitter)

I hadn't seen those you mentioned until I actually went into their respective accounts, as they didn't appear in my feed. I was/am stunned at this kind of behaviour, in what world do these people live?

I think there are a lot of people out there who think TV characters/actors belong to them and them only. I really wonder whether they distinguish fiction from reality. The latest thing that appeared on tumblr was: Michael and Cote were having an affair and she didn't want to keep playing second fiddle to Bojana - or words to that effect!!

That....that's just frightening. I have heard actors talk about people who don't seem to be able to separate them from their characters, and they (the actors) almost universally find them to be not just annoying, but truly frightening. I mean, that's orders of magnitude different from the general annoyance of people interrupting your dinner out to ask you to quote a line from something, or being able to name characters you've played without being able to recall your actual name. This is one of the reasons that I was horrified when I discovered that people write "fanfic" using real people and not characters.

That's exactly how I feel. It makes you understand why actors hire bodyguards because with this kind of weirdo I think you're in bodily danger. I find it disturbing that people with families, a job, etc., have been spending the time sobbing their hearts out or ranting over the news.

I don't like fanfic that uses real people I find that very worrying.

Can Ziva be the person following Fornell out of the limo? Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease??!!

On a slightly more serious note, nothing about the character has ever made sense to me. The only training she has is her mandatory two years in the IDF and then straight into Mossad - where after no more than one year she is then handed the plum assignment of handling a deep cover operative, which she screws up (no matter how you slice it original or retconned version), so she is rewarded with a "liason" spot on the presumably top investigative team. Jeebus, even Alias made more sense than that.

Andit was all down hill from there. Oy.

I stopped watching once they used Tony as a scapegoat/comedy fonder for Ziva. Tony was a competent agent who enjoyed goofing off and not an incompetent goof. It irked me that they screwed his character so royally to play to the Tive crowd.

Edit: It also irks me that I can't seem to spell at times. ;)

Also, am I the only one who was pissed that Kate had to die so that Ziva could come into the picture? I mean seriously, they could have come up with a plausible reason for Kate to leave, and then Sasha could have done guest appearances later on if they HAD to have Ziva.
