A Farewell To Abby

A Farewell To Abby

Nothing will truly hurt as much as the departure of the beloved Abby Sciuto.

NCIS has been a pivotal part of my life for many years now. I first started watching episodes in sixth grade and i became hooked. At this point I have watched every single episode multiple times, the show has become a comfort that I put on in the background when I’m completing work.

The characters have also started to feel like family. Having watched the show for so many years, I have seen many of them come and go. Sometimes the departures of a beloved character hurt. Other times they flitted through the show without really anchoring themselves to the fans hearts.

However, nothing will truly hurt as much as the departure of the beloved Abby Sciuto, the forensic scientist. She has been with the show since its beginning, fifteen seasons ago, and is the only strong female character lead left.

Abby, played by Pauley Perrette, is the crazy forensic scientist that works at NCIS. With a quick glance one wouldn’t think that her job would be working at a Navy Yard. With her all black goth outfits, signature pigtails, and large spider web tattoo on her neck, she has become a staple for the show.

On the show she is portrayed as someone who has a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone on the team. Over the seasons we have learned about her family and her long lost brother. Now, this week we are about to see her for the very last time.

It came almost as a shock when it was announced that Perette would be leaving the show at the end of it’s fifteenth season, with no actual reason as to why. At the end of last week's episode, we saw something major happened to Abby.

With her last episode, we can only guess what the outcome will be. The fans are waiting with bated breath to see what the outcome will be for her character.

Abby is an integral part of the show, and without her it seems like there is a certain end. THe show has had a good run, but with most of its main actors leaving for new shows or personal reasons, it should be time for the creators to wrap it up.

It has become apparent in recent weeks that Abby or Pauley isn’t just a forensic scientist on the show, she has become so much more than that. From watching recent interviews I have learned how much Perette has inspired her fans.

Perette has set up scholarships at her alma matters for young girls who are inspired by science. Her character is so unusual on today’s TV that she has been voted the most beloved character on primetime TV.

Abby has become such a loveable character and we are sad to see her go. No matter how her departure will come about. Thank you for the last fifteen years, NCIS will never be the same without you.

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
