NCIS 1x16 Bete Noir
I love this show so much! Notice how I said "my" show in the subject?
Well, that's how i feel about it. I'm so in love with NCSI and with Tony and Gibbs, and all the others. Tony/Gibbs is the new Jack/Daniel, that much is sure. Their love is a lot more complicated, while they themselves aren't, but it is so obvious. SO obvious.
I just wish Gibbs wasn't such an asshole most of the time. But the smiles he gives Tony sometimes! And the touching! There is an insane amount of inappropriate touching. The devil is in the details, details like this:( Tiny Spoiler for the ep under the cut )
Oh, they are so pretty and gay!
*dances the dance of the pretty and gay special agents*
When I said tat Gibbs and Tony aren't as complicated as Jack and Daniel, I didn't mean that in a bad way. They are just a lot more straight forward.
Daniel and Jack have so many issues, on their own and together, I don't even know where to start. Of course, with them being strong men (*rolls eyes*) and everything, they deal. They got over it. But they'll always be there, they'll always be part of them. They just chose to ignore them and move on.
Gibbs and Tonay are different. I'M not sure if Tony even has issues, but if he has, we'll sure get to know about them soon. He talks about everything, like his nightmares. Not with Gibbs, of course, but he does with Kate (Cait, whatever), which leads me to believe that if theirt relationship is really more a brother/sister relationship. You wouldn't want to tell these things to a woman you ar etrying to impress, would you.
Of course, that doesn't mean that there isn't any dark secret in Tony's past, but it suggests that he has a different way of dealing with things.
Gibbs on the other hand... We know he got beat over the head with a bat by one of his wives. We know that he doesn't answer calls from another wife. We know that he builds a boat that he will never get OUT of the basement, and that sounds pretty neurotic to me.
And how do we know all these things? Because he told us.
He can try to play the strong, silent type all he wants, he just can't pull it off. In that one ep, where Tony tells Kate that Gibbs wife hit him with a basevall bat, Gibbs gets this strange expression in his face when he looks for Kate's reaction. He isn't hiding his feelings about the incident, those are clear in his face. He is just daring Kate to say something, or not to say something, I don't know which, and I don't think he does either.
Fact is, he acknowledges his feelings. He comes back to them. More than once. But he lives WITH them. Unlike Jack and Daniel, who try to forget things unsuccessfully, which is why they are so damn complicated.
The Gibbs/Di Nozzo love on the other hand is a lot more complicated than the Jack/Daniel love.
Jack loves Daniel. Daniel needs to be kicked in the head and reminded sometimes, but he loves Jack as well.
It's very easy.
Tony loves Gibbs. Or maybe he doesn't, he just desperately wants attention from the person who is his boss. Gibbs doesn't love Tony, because he is an asshole and the most self-absorbed man I've ever seen on TV. Or maybe he does, and that's why he makes Tony follow him around like a puppy, giving him these looks, teasing him all the time.
I just don't know. Really, at the moment I could buy any version of their love. There is only one way to find out:
watch all the episodes again.
But I'll do that later, when I have actually seen them all.
I love the show.
I want the DVDs.
There are going to be DVDs, right?
Damn, but there won't be region 2 ones. And with Germany's current opinion of the US, I doubt we'll ever get to see the show over here. So the hope for region 2 DVDs is rather slim. Unless there is a UK version?
