Wanted (4x17) - The DVD Commentary w Daniela Ruah & Eric Christian Olsen

“Wanted” (4x17) – DVD Commentary with Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen

@ericcolsen

In this third commentary by the (on- and off-screen) bantering duo, the amusement kicks off immediately as ECO introduces himself as “Aaron Christmas Elvis.” Connoisseurs of previous DR/ECO commentaries can easily predict - and now expect - the following: they will 1) forget or erroneously name a guest actor (even with a cheat sheet), 2) make reference to Portugal, and 3) mercilessly mock each other.

(Author’s Note: This is the beginning of notably longer “analyses” due to the incredible end of Season 4 offerings!)

Sam is already at his desk when Kensi and Deeks arrive.

KENSI: Oh, my gosh, you totally didn’t have to do that.

DEEKS: Easily, Nonsense, are you kidding? It was my pleasure. It’s gonna be great. Hey, how are you, Sam?

SAM: Intrigued, Is there a celebration I should know about?

KENSI: Proudly, Deeks just bought us two tickets to board the high-speed rail to financial freedom, thank you very much.

SAM: I’m afraid to ask.

We open in the bullpen with Sam, Callen, and… a space suit?! Yes, Sam works to educate his team members as he prepares for his daughter’s “living history” day at school. 

Deeks eagerly spies the helmet of the space suit:

DEEKS: Moving to grab the helmet, Can I try it on?

SAM: Hurriedly No, no, no, no, no, I don’t want your greasy mop contaminating my nice, clean space helmet.

DEEKS: Assuredly You’re obviously jealous of my beautiful, flowing locks.

Kill House (4x14)The introduction of “The Box”

[I had to include this screencap because it’s just plain cool having the strobe-light highlight the moment when Kensi strikes - with her left hand!)

Written by: Dave Kalstein; Directed by: Larry Teng

[Author’s Note: Oh boy! It’s a Kalstein script, so definitive and “turning point” Densi interaction and conversation is certainly to be expected. Likewise, with Teng in the director’s chair, high stakes action Is on the horizon! Let’s buckle in! And yes, I TRIED to write this as if I don’t know the future of a knife (oops), raccoons (definitely not), The Box (ah yes, that’s it)!]

In the bullpen, Sam & Callen begin a conversation when Deeks arrives.

DEEKS: Good morning! If you… Seeing Sam in his chair, perplexed What are you… No, no. No. What are you doing? You can’t do that. You can’t just sit in another man’s desk.

ECO & “Impact” (5x2) vs “Spoils of War” (5x19)

So this was on my Twitter feed yesterday:

If you know me at all, you know there’s no way I can respond to this in <140 characters. Thus, this post.

Spoils of War

As I said, for me “Impact” (5x2) stands as my favorite ECO ep. Ever. I concur his performance and what the writers did to Deeks in “Spoils of War” was incredible, in a heart-wrenching, yet soul-revealing way.

Written by: G. Grant & C.H. Coker; Directed by: Paul A. Kaufman

While this is a Callen-centered episode, there are some fine nuggets of Densi goodness as well!

CALLEN: Intrigued What is that?

KENSI: That appears to be a fish tank.

SAM: Perplexed Why is it here?

DEEKS: With a hint of pride That is an excellent question, to which I have an answer.
