Chasing Ghosts (2005)
Showing it stance right from the start, director Jeremy Snead displays some gumption by opening with a quote from Gandhi. ““A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.” Being cliche aside, it is clear Video Games: The Movie shows
I saw on Twitter that you got the White Collar final season premiere. Anything you could share? — Katie H.
I can share that the final-season storyline, as laid out in the first episode (airing Nov. 6), is pretty damn nifty – a specific, final gambit with enormous stakes all involved, including on the personal front. The highly
Though there have been moments when Molly (Halle Berry) seemed as if she was detached from both John (Goran Visnjic) and Ethan (Pierce Gagnon) in the first half of this first season of Extant; for the most part, her family – and the relative normality that they represent – have very much felt like something that pushed Molly to make it through the horrors of what happened to her in space.
Over these last four episodes (which were condensed into two double episode events), though, we’ve seen Molly sprint away from John and Ethan despite John’s pleas. Last week, when Molly risked everything to simply “see” the alien baby that had been extracted from ...

Opening with a recap, “Chasing Ghosts” gets back on track by focusing on Ziva’s discreet pursuit of Ilan Bodnar, the man responsible for the deaths of Eli David and Jackie Vance.
The episode deals less with the progress of Ziva’s manhunt and more with Tony’s suspicions of her, flipping the perspective from her grief, to his concern for her. His sleuth mode initiates enjoyable banter between him and McGee, whose deception in the end sets up possible conflict between the two in the future, hopefully further explored as the season reaches its climax. While he’s usually invading his co-worker’s work space with the intent of exposing their secrets, Tony’s loyalty to Ziva on a more personal level suggests that he’s more likely
I jumped on the phone last week with Executive Producer Gary Glasberg to find out just how close Tiva will get in "Berlin," as well how much newcomer Marina Sartis is going to mix it up with Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and how the upcoming addition of Colin Hanks is going to rock our team.
TV Fanatic: Let’s jump right to it. In the “Berlin” episode, is Ziva going to find resolution, or is this just yet another piece of the puzzle?
Gary Glasberg: It definitely adds to the clues that she’s collecting,
Now, TV Fanatic staff members Steve Marsi, Douglas Wolfe and Christine Orlando have assembled for our weekly Round Table Q&A discussion of various events and topics from this installment.
Join in as we analyze another entertaining hour of TV's #1 show!
1. How would you describe this week's episode in one word (or two, or three, or four)?
Doug: The one-finger discount.
Christine: Vena Amoris because sometimes I just love Ducky's stories.
Steve: I want in.
2. What was your favorite scene from "Chasing Ghosts?"
Doug: It's a toss-up between two scenes. The first was Palmer's adamant refusal to be pigeon-holed by Ducky, when he said: "No, you know what? I take it back. It is not okay. I appreciate you throwing me a bone once in a while, or in this case a finger but it's not enough.
The 35-year-old actor will appear in NCIS Season 10's final two episodes, May 7 and May 14, as Department of Defense Investigator Richard Parsons, and when he first appears, look out.
Executive producer Gary Glasberg describes Parsons as “Ken Starr, J. Edgar Hoover and an angry pitbull wrapped into one" and says Hanks will help “make it a truly memorable finale.”
The show returns April 23 with "Berlin," the first of four new episodes to finish off the season. As we saw last night (see our NCIS review of "Chasing Ghosts"), we can expect fireworks.
What role do you think Hanks' character will play in the season-ending drama?
Share your comments on this and all things NCIS with TV Fanatic below.
To that end, this was one of those installments where the last 10 minutes were the most compelling, particularly that slow approving nod from Vance to Ziva.
Let's start from the beginning, shall we?
The title - "Chasing Ghosts" - was a play on words, as the "ghosts" here were twofold: the first was the missing Navy reservist's husband, Noah Daniels, who was later presumed dead. The second was Bodnar, who's been in the wind since the death of Ziva's father and Vance's wife. Both the Navy reservist - Callie Daniels - and Ziva were looking for closure.
In the case of Daniels, it turns out he had staged his own kidnapping at his home - and then later staged his own death by killing Darryl Orton, a man
Tony is suspicious of what Ziva's been up to lately, believing that Thai food, beer and late night calls to Shmiel cannot be a coincidence. Something's up with her, it's just a question of what.
While he and McGee argue over whether his concern is being a good citizen or stalking, Bodnar also comes up in a talk between Vance and Gibbs, who are well aware of Ziva sniffing around.
Although he's the CIA's problem now, there's no doubt Ziva has taken this into her own hands ... as has Vance himself, according to Gibbs. Who knows what? Who's plotting what?

This possibility was alluded to earlier, and apparently becomes a genuine possibility in next week's episode, as Tony suspects she is planning a risky move to avenge her father's death.
Think she is? If so, what will her big plan entail?
Meanwhile, when a Navy reservist returns home to find her husband missing and her living room covered in blood, she turns to Gibbs and the rest of the NCIS team to bring him home.

The show returns next Tuesday before taking another week off, then coming back for four straight to finish NCIS Season 10. Click to enlarge photos from the April 9 installment, as well:

Ziva? Father murders man who might recognize him while on U.S. soil. Check.
Gibbs? It's a little better now. But both men are still a bit crusty with each other. Giving it a check.
Tony? I suppose if bedding Tony's neighbor on Tony's bed is any indication, then... check.
And now we've learned that Tim has a "son of a bitch" father who thinks his son is an "overpaid paper pusher. Big time check.
At least this paternal dynamic gave the NCIS team an opportunity to show its family colors as Gibbs, Abby and even Tony (in an awkward way) found ways to encourage Tim to face his dad. Tony struck a real note when he said that fathers start out as heroes but then later on disappoint. Maybe, in a way,

Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope is Morgan Spurlock’s latest documentary that covers the pop culture phenomenon that is San Diego Comic-Con. Personally I have been the New York Comic-Con and a bunch of smaller events, but I’ve never had the pleasure of going to the Mecca of geekdom that is San Diego Comic-Con. It is an event that has evolved greatly over the last decade. The show that was once segregated to the geek culture elite has now become part of the populist lexicon. In this documentary Morgan Spurlock along with writer Joss Whedon examine what this Con means to the geek culture. Spurlock has indicated this film was meant to be a love letter to Comic-Con as well as

Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade

Synopsis: At the unassuming Twin Galaxies arcade in Ottumwa, Iowa, early gamers fought for bragging rights at the 1982 Video Game World Championships. See how competitive gaming started, and meet arcade owner Walter Day, who still oversees scoring.
Why You Should Check It Out: There is just something about that arcade experience that I really miss. Today’s online gaming world is full of foul mouth preteen kids mocking you in almost every turn. Back in the day those kids were standing right next to you
