I put shows in a couple of categories: Serious and Humorous so I'm not comparing something WOW! in the drama category to something that makes my sides hurt from laughter.
I rate it a ten - mostly funny with a few poignant moments.
I'm 50 so was in my teens during the heyday of the 1970s cop shows and I was a major addict. All the references to some of my old favorites made me grin all over myself.
I loved Gibbs connection with Lt Paxton's husband. They both had hero wives. Shannon could have looked the other way when she saw the hit by the drug lord but she didn't . She like Emma was a hero.
Snappy dialog: (this, for instance) The "Team Gibbs Kids" on autopilot: Tony: "Fax is dead" - to send the BOLO Ziva: "Phone is dead" - to call the Hubby Tim: "Computer's dead" - to check the bank and credit card records
Abby trying to make her own Caf-Pow
Lots of Gibbs smiles - watching his team trying to figure out the mimeograph. Ziva jumping when the mimeograph tried to "bite" her.
Tony clicking on Tim Tim clicking on Tony
Gibbs calling Jimmy "Jim"
"Team Gibbs Kids" in the rather unkempt squadroom. All make statements that being "unplugged" is rather nice. - then the power comes back on for real. Tony: (when his computer comes on) It's alive!

I gave it 8/10. It was entertaining, and they'll always get extra points for a well-placed Dr. Who reference. However, I didn't think the case itself was as engaging as some of the others they've featured--it just didn't quite have the "paaah" I was looking for...
TIM: You know, that's how Houdini died. TONY: Ziva, did you kill Houdini? ZIVA: It is possible, I do not remember all their names.
