    I have continually backed this show despite most internet critics bashing it, but now I am starting to see what those pundits are talking about.



    NCIS: Los Angeles just has not developed any original characters and down the line, when it loses NCIS as its lead-in, will people continue to watch? Will viewers still tune in to see a 50 year LL Cool J?



    This particular episode stood out as there was just another senseless explosion, and a plethora of cliched dialogue among the agents. No character development, and no witty dialogue, the one thing you are guaranteed during NCIS, even during their bad episodes.moreless
  • Lame episode

    4.0
    This episode is already lame to begin with. After emotional flashback about Dom's death, all of a sudden they have comedic scene? Especially, if you notice, every time they have comedic scene, they will put that lame music on...lame music that they think will encourage viewers to laugh, while it won't.

    There's a lot of plot holes, and by plot holes, I mean something that will ruin the overall story. Remember when Eric mentions the last Turkish ship to the team? He just says that the ship will go in one hour. He does NOT say that the ship is a confirmed target. So how can the team make an assault without fearing legal persecution? How come they can take out much larger force with much larger weapon only with small handguns and no protection? It's like cheap Hollywood B-movies in the 1980s.

    Lastly, there is no lead character in this episode. Even ensemble-cast show needs one. This episode contains Sam's emotional moment with Mo and G's disapproval of Hetty's resignation, but none is strong enough to stand out.moreless
  • Slightly disappointing episode.......

    8.0
    In this episode of NCIS LA, the following happens. During an Army transfer of a prisoner, armed men turn up and kill the officers and take the prisoner with them. We soon learn that the prisoner is the leader of the group who had Dom kidnapped and the group who ultimately killed Dom. And so they have so work with the Army to track him down. They get a lead and when they get there, the prisoner is there. Hetty also drops a bomb in this episode, when she hands in her letter of resignation. A slightly disappointing episode after the brilliant one from last week. We saw in the opening 2 minutes the way his death has affected them, and then that was basically it.moreless
  • Great episode, and this show continues to be awesome!

    I'm really enjoying NCIS: LA, and there have been some amazing episodes. This one is certainly no exception to that philosophy, and I hope this continues!



    I thought tahat Hetty's retirement/resignation made this episode slightly sad and disappointing, but I did enjoy the actual case tht the team was working on. It was really interesting, and it tied in well, after Dom'ss death in the previous episode.



    Overall, I hope this show continues down this path. It has certainly come a long way since its premiere, and I can't wait to see what sort of cliffhanger they will deliveer in the final two episodes of this amazing debut season! Keep it up!moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Callen: You okay?
      Eric: I'm not comfortable with authority figures. It's why I do what I do, computers don't talk back. Well, I mean technically they can, but even then I can manipulate the voice to make it soothing, if you want. Sexy, even.
      Callen: Too much information!

    • Callen: Agents Callen and Hanna, NCIS.
      Major Medina: Major Rick Medina, Army CID out of Washington. I just got an earful from my boss, who got an earful from your boss. Meaning I'm already prone not to like you guys.
      Sam: I'm not feeling a lot of love for you right now either.

    • Hetty: You seem to be afraid to speak with me privately. Knowing damn well I won't do this in front of my co-workers. Smart. But ultimately ineffective. I've suffered a lot of loss over the years, Leon, we all have.
      Vance: Yeah.
      Hetty: But the loss of one of my agents, I cannot withstand. Agent Sullivan was my first and I swore, my last. But swearing seems to have proven a hollow gesture. And I'm left with no choice. (hands him a sealed envelope) I thought I'd save Uncle Sam the postage. My letter of resignation.
      Leon: (takes the letter) This isn't over, Hetty.
      Hetty: Oh, I'm afraid for me, it is, Leon.

    • Vance: You got a moment. (Pulls out her letter)
      Hetty: I thought that was pretty self-explanatory.
      Vance: Well, the words are clear, yah, the sentiment is valid. It's as clear and valid as it was in 1999, when it was written. This is the exact same letter of resignation you turned in when Agent Sullivan was killed. You just changed the date, penciled in a new one.
      Hetty: I choose these people, and I assess them. I train them. I put time and stock and heart into them. And they die, proving one thing I always suspected (sighs) that I'm not cut out for this job.
      Vance: Hetty, you're more cut out for this job than anybody I've ever worked with.
      Hetty: No, I was never ever cut out for this. I just happen to have the capacity for it.

    • (Callen walks in on Hetty packing)
      Callen: Spring cleaning?
      Hetty: Call it what you will, Mr. Callen.
      Callen: (Picks up a book) That's your diary.
      Hetty: Certainly is.
      Callen: You don't spring clean your diary. Are we moving?
      Hetty: No.
      Callen: Are you moving? (Hetty doesn't answer) You didn't get fired, did you?
      Hetty: Certainly not!
      Callen: You're not...quitting?
      Hetty: Resigning, it's different.
      Callen: Not from where I'm standing.
      Hetty: (slams down a book) Oh, Mr. Callen, I've been through a lot, decades of a lot. And at some point you realize there are remote islands you'd like to visit, novels to lose yourself to, culinary delights to fatten up on.
      Callen: Huh. Never thought I'd hear you rationalize. (Shakes head) If you feel the need to take the blame for Dom's death, Hetty, you're gonna have to stand in line.
      Hetty: You are gravely mistaken if you think I would let the death of one agent influence my occupational choices.
      Callen: But you are. That's one of those things I love about you. (Callen walks over to her) Don't do this.
      Hetty: I'm afraid my decision is final, Mr. Callen. (Hetty puts her diary in a box as Callen leaves)

    • Callen: Major? I just wanted to know what it felt like.
      Major: What did what feel like?
      Callen: That moment when you went from protecting your country to betraying it.

    • Callen: (with a bottle of whiskey) A toast? To your ...uh… pending retirement?
      Hetty: A symbolic libation. So, you're not mad at me?
      Callen: No, because I realized something. I'm actually jealous of you. Now you get to relax, sleep in late, have long lunches with your friends, play Canasta until your fingers bleed.
      Hetty: Now, you're toying with me. Save your whiskey and your breath, Vance already has my letter of resignation.
      Callen: (Pulls an envelope out of his pocket) You mean this one?
      Hetty: Where did you get that? Did Vance give that to you?
      Callen: Well, not exactly. You know, you can take the kid off the streets, but… uh… Did I mention the Canasta? (Hetty reaches for the letter, Callen pulls it away and then hands it to her. She puts it in her drawer)
      Hetty: Oh, Hell … Better make it a double.
