Camera? Check! Converter for electronics? Check! New clothes & sneakers? Check & check! British money? Check! Things are coming along nicely as we get ready for my kiddo’s trip to London. Only thirteen days left! Scary, but it’s so exciting, too. And as I write this up, I can hear the rain hitting the window outside… Rain is my favorite, so I’m having a very good night. Hopefully you had a good weekend too. To start off the work/school week, check out what we’re recommending for your Monday-night TV viewing.
Last week’s NCIS: LA was all about fathers and sons, and it was one of those cases that you couldn’t help but feel bad for the killer. Yes, he was a murderer, and that’s a very bad thing, but there were some DEEP psychological issues, including a stepfather who was abusive and a mother who was…well, not a great help to her children. The case hit Sam hard especially, given that, like the boys the killer was “protecting,” he had been a young boy in military school raised by a strict father, and his own son was also off at military school, although it sounded more like his son was structured on his own, rather than being ruled by Sam. And wait… Sam has a son? Who knew! Honestly, I hated when we found out a couple of seasons ago out of the blue that Sam was married and had a daughter. Now, after all this time, to suddenly find out he has a son, too? It’s just…weird. But oh well. LOL I still love the show.
The only thing I was disappointed with last week was that we didn’t see the impact of it more on Kensi, Deeks, and even Callen, who ALL have “daddy” issues. Kensi’s died, Deeks’s was abusive and he killed him when he was a young teenager, and Callen doesn’t remember his father. I understand why the case his Sam hard, given his connection to his own father, but to not even acknowledge the issues with the others was a big misstep on the show’s part, IMO.
Tonight should be really good, and if the preview is any indication, Densi fans are in for a treat. I won’t spoil it here for those who haven’t watched it, but I’m HOPING tonight will be a turning point (in a good way!) for Kensi & Deeks and that they aren’t just teasing us and nothing REALLY happens.
On tonight’s episode, “Humbug,” the team investigates a burglary at a cyber-security company, but Callen must steer clear of the crime scene after Hetty reveals his girlfriend, Joelle, is one of the lead witnesses. Also, the team discusses their personal holiday travel plans. Guest stars include Elizabeth Bogush as Joelle Taylor and Aunjanue Ellis, Layla Crawford, and Tye White as Michelle, Kamran, & Aiden Hanna.
Celebrate Christmas with the team tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, The Great Christmas Light Fight, Mike & Molly, Ascension, Major Crimes, Scorpion, & Mystery Diners.
