NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles are known for their banter in the opening scene, usually lasting about 5 minutes, and then the crew gets down to business after that. But when the jokes were not there to start the show off, and the annoying chemical drug fare storyline was the mystery planned for today, you knew you were not in for a particularly engaging episode.
I am not writing this show off, as it is still doing monster numbers for the network, but when NCIS ends its run will the viewers stick with this program? I have my doubts about that. The show really needs to add another female.
