['NCIS' - 'One Last Score']
For a change of pace, 'NCIS' resorted to a 'ripped from the headlines' angle to tell tonight's story. In this case, it was a female Bernie Madoff type, with the nasty elements of Leona Helmsley tossed in, as well. In fact, her name was Leona Phelps.
But even though there were a couple of knifed bodies involved in the case, the key word to describe what was going on was 'heist.'
Michael Weatherly stepped behind the camera to direct the show, his first 'NCIS,' and he deserves kudos all around. Not only was the episode well-acted and well-paced, but the tone was right on target.
