TWC: Perky Goth

This Week’s Crush is the over-caffeinated, perky, gothic forensic science Abby Sciuto from NCIS played by the perennially youthful Pauley Perrette (she’s actually 42).

Abby makes forensics science very sexy but like all TV scientists possesses skills in way too many disciplines than is actually possible for one person to have – DNA analysis, ballistics, digital forensics, computer hacking, chemical analysis and whatever skill they need to advance the storyline this week. However, the writers and Pauley herself have ejected so much into the character of Abby that she has become much more than a handy plot device. Abby is the heart of NCIS and through her we gain an deeper understanding of the personal relationships between all the major characters.
