Whiskey Cavalier - Czech Mate television review

The First Season finale of Whiskey Cavalier continues the team’s search for Ollerman (Dylan Walsh), at least until he shows up at their safe house and blackmails them into performing a mission for him by infecting Ray (Josh Hopkins). What was apparently set to be the series finale, ABC cancelled the series, may not be as the network is in discussions about the possibility to bring Whiskey Cavalier for a second season. This is good news for fans of the show as “Czech Mate” may wrap-up a few loose ends, such as revealing Standish’s (Tyler James Williams) girlfriend to be a killer working for Ollerman, revealing Tina (Marika Dominczyk) to be Emma’s (Ophelia Lovibond) killer, and finally getting Will (Scott Foley) to forgive Ray’s indiscretions, the show leaves plenty still unresolved with Ollerman still on the run and the fate of Standish very much uncertain. The show has certainly made some strides over the season, and although I wouldn’t be surprised to see ABC ultimately decide to cancel it, I’m also curious to see what the writers might come up with for next season.

James Bond 007 #7

James Bond 007 #7 comic reviewJames Bond 007 #7 flushes out the story a bit more as Bond learns at least the outline of Goldfinger‘s plans which involve an African diamond mine. Action is a bit light in the issue, other than Bond accosting one of Goldfinger’s minions for information and another go-around with Mr. Lee (who Bond finds working for Goldfinger).

As in the original movie, the issue offers up a first encounter between James Bond and Auric Goldfinger than involves the British spy ruining a rigged poker game. This time around the action is at a casino rather than poolside (and no unlucky woman takes the punishment).

NCIS - Daughters television review

NCIS’ latest case gets personal when Emily Fornell (Juliette Angelo) shows up in the emergency room with an opioid overdose. While NCIS first believes her to be a victim, it doesn’t take too long before Fornell (Joe Spano) discovers his daughter is an addict. The episode is notable for two guest-appearances, one directly tied to the Fornell storyline and one which leads into next season’s premiere. The first is the return of Melinda McGraw who appears as a ghost to haunt Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and push him into taking Emily’s case (despite a dubious jurisdictional claim). Gibbs has been haunted by several characters over the years, but Diane’s return caps a season-long theme of the grizzled agent letting his guard down more than at any point in the show’s history.
