Even NCIS is having trouble with their cases and storylines. All this makes me appreciate smaller shows like Psych and Burn Notice even though they are having trouble with the case portions, the interactions between characters are making them fun to watch.
The current two-parter on NCIS is exciting with Ziva's father and the assassination attempt plus the mystery about Vance's Amsterdam mission. It was more exciting that NCIS: Los Angeles' two-parter.
Speaking of cable, do you also watch Leverage, those characters are fun to watch, especially Parker.
