    I too think Hetty looks and acts like Edna Mode, however I don't know if this is where TPTB got their inspiration for the character or not.
    Edna Mode was based on the famous Hollywood costume designer Edith Head. She died several years ago. I showed of photo I found of her online to my son. He was blown away.

    I like the show but why is it that when the agents on the show proceed with an investigation and they question witnesses, suspects or whoever that they never show their identification? They will announce themselves as agents but never flash their ID's. Just a little something that I've noticed.

    I'm not entirely sure, but I'm guessing it's related to them being the "special ops" team and being undercover a lot. I know, that isn't really a good explanation because quite often they are talking to people and specifically say they are with NCIS. But that's the only explanation I can think of.

    I was really enjoying NCIS Los Angeles, but it disappeared just before Christmas - I'm in the UK. Anyone have any idea when it will be back? Thanks

    Here in the states, the last episode before Christmas was "Brimstone" and aired on Dec 15th. The show just returned this week (Jan 5th) with the episode "Breach". So I'd imagine it would be returning in the UK soon...

    In "Ambush," Hetty says to Director Vance she doesn't want to go the way of her predecessor Macy who is somewhere in Okinawa or the Middle East-

    I thought Hetty said Macy ended up in Djibouti.

    The gap in February was because the Olympics were airing on NBC, and I believe the gap in March was for NCAA Basketball in the states. I don't know why there is a gap now.

    Probably because CBS likes to air their season finales during the last week of sweeps. Since they only have so many episodes to work with, they have to run repeats leading up to the beginning of sweeps.

    So who plays the role of Gibbs in NCIS LA? I don't see anyone in his position who leads the team as sometimes its G and sometimes its L.L Cool J but really not much authority as Gibbs. I think maybe they don't have a true Gibbs and thus have to use someone like Hetty with a different leadership position that doesn't venture into the field.

    Yes, I agree, there isn't exactly a character that is in the same position as Gibbs in Los Angeles. In my opinion, G is the closest to Gibbs' role. He is the team leader, he directs the other agents and tells them how to divide up and what to do. Hetty is directly under Director Vance, and is in charge of everything in the Special Ops office, but you are right, she doesn't go out into the field.

    If I am not mistaken the lady in the pilot Louise Lombard played the role of Gibbs and thus went into the field but then all of sudden they replace here with someone like Heddy which is kind of stupid if you ask me.

    The writers don't want to have everything the same on the two shows. Which makes a lot of sense; it would cause both to suffer in the long run. I'm glad the two teams are not set up exactly alike. It lets the shows develop different strengths.
