A friend of mine has commented several times that writers for television shows are not paid nearly enough for the quality of work they produce. No doubt this is true, but tonight I saw for the first time just HOW true this belief can be.
In the latest edition to my gallery, I used a photograph of an empty pair of shoes to reflect my feelings on the introduction of NSA analyst Ellie Bishop to the NCIS team. While the symbolism of the image may be obvious (for full details, see my gallery), it seems the NCIS writers have fully latched onto my thinking. In tonight's premiere episode, Bishop commented to Dr. Rachel Cranston (Kate Todd's sister, for those who don't remember) that the shoes she has to fill are gigantic, and in some ways may be unfillable.
This is exactly what I was thinking when Bishop was introduced to the show, and, as I mentioned in my deviation, I hoped that Bishop understood that notion. Well, it seems that she does.
