I'll go with 8.5 too. There were some really good parts and some that were just not quite up to their usual standard. Though I must say, if we'd seen Jen more like she was tonight, I'd be liking her a lot better.
Abby: "You're getting sneakier the older you get." Gibbs: "Not to mention better looking."
Got a 5 from me. I wasn't keen on Tony's attitude with McGee being 'gay' at all - I thought it went a bit too far to be funny and that put me off. While the story was quite well crafted, it wasn't up to the stormin' standard set by the series so far.
I found the episode quite funny. And I didn't think the 'gay' stuff was too over the top; after all, Dinozzo does make a point of saying any form of prejudice is ugly. Wasn't too keen on Gibbs essentially crossing the line again, though.
