And the delight was ongoing. At last, at last, and thanks to some judicious relocating of the video recorder, we got to entertain friends AND record/later watch the return of NCIS. Neatly, amongst Saturday's repeats of season 1 was the episode we had missed where Ari first appeared so that dovetailed nicely with Season 3's start in the aftermath's of Kate's shooting.
Only thing is we now have to wait till Friday to watch the second part of the season opener: argh, la-la-la no spoilers please!!!
