NCIS (Tim Pensive)
NCIS - 7.13 - Jet Lag

You know what this episode drives home for me? That I am anti Tony/Ziva. I usually ship the canon (UST) pairing, even if I also ship other pairings. For instance, I totally shipped Sam/Annie, John/Aeryn, Niles/Daphne, Horatio/Archie (hah!). I ship Shawn/Juliet, and even though I grumble about its overuse in the show, I ship Chuck/Sarah. If a show is leading me towards liking a ship, I generally do. But here? I am all 'A WORLD OF NO!' And it's strange, because I love Ziva. And I love Tony. I just really do not like them together. It's even more odd, because, as pairings go, they kind of fill in all the boxes as to things I like (tension! antagonism! hard-won trust!) I do not get it, but clearly I do not like it.

By the by? We've had strong Tim/Abby, Gibbs/DiNozzo, Tony/Ziva episodes now. We have to be on track for crazy amounts of Tim/Tony.

Other things of note in this episode:

Gibbs/Ducky fanservice. I was agog! They're totally going on a date.

I missed Jimmy almost as much as I missed Tim in this episode. By the way, I really missed Tim in this episode.

Tony recommends Twilight? This is a man who mercilessly mocked Tim's writing, yet has no problems with Stephenie Meyer's awful prose? (Which? Is not me saying Tim's writing is any good, because, of all the sections read out in the show? Very much no. But, compared to Meyer?) Also, he's Team Edward. I don't even --- *jazz hands*

Americans must truly distrust flight attendants by now.

I saw the second half of this one last night and at the end with the whole romantic picture of Ziva thing I was like.... Uh. What? WHY? Huh? Not that I follow the show very religiously, but I have to agree about the Tony/Ziva thing.

I think it's just because they're laying it on too thick?

But also partly because Ziva's had a crush on Tony for a long time, but apart from obviously noticing how beautiful she is, Tony's always been super reluctant.

I think he was BSing the Twilight bit in order to distract the poor U.S. Marshal. At least, I hope he was.

First Ducky asked Gibbs out on a date, then Tony said something about the Mile High Club with Ducky, and...yeah, team!orgy FTW, basically. I remain ambivalent about Tony/Ziva and would much prefer it if they flirted around the edges of something without ever actually going to it.

ETA: I realllly missed Jimmy. What is Ducky without his assistant?!

I would like to say he was BSing the Twilight bit too. God, I hope so. :(

I should like Tony/Ziva, but I really, really don't. It confuses me.

I like them best when they're antagonizing each other utterly. That, uh, might have something to do with my warped ideas about good TV relationships, however.
