    This was one of the weakest of the season but had a promising start when someone came out of the body bag and started shooting up the morgue I didn't really understand the last chase scenes when Kensi was chasing a suspect and got hit by a car and she got up straight away you would think she would be a little injured I also didn't understand when Deeks was fighting with another suspect and got thrown over the bridge and had a gun pulled at him and Deeks pulled his and managed to shoot the suspect even though the suspect already has a gun at him and had higher ground.moreless
  • A good episode, but I envy the indestructibility of these agents.

    This episode had a good storyline- a man is stolen from a morgue and a super-secretive tracking spray gets let out into the public. The spray was a very interesting aspect. The thought of someone going out and spraying a tracking material on random people is creepy. I how the chemicals were stolen and the conclusion of making a dirty bomb was made. When the team was after the suspects, the part when Kensi got hit by the car felt strange to me. She got right up and continued to chase the suspect. No one ever mentioned it, either, and she wasn't hurt at all. I loved when Deeks got thrown into the water, and when Nell played it over and over again at the tech room. It was interesting that the buyer of one of the stolen items is still out there and I wonder when it will turn up again.

    While I do like this show a lot, the episodes seem to have a formula, so there aren't too many surprises: Crime, finding/interrogating suspects, a bomb goes off (or some other crisis happens), someone gets injured, resolution. Still, this show is underrated.moreless

    Terrorism at the forefront of this episode of NCIS: Los Angeles. A lot of action on the plate tonight and I think it worked. It almost felt like this episode was on fast-forward as things progressed at an expedited pace, much quicker than they usually do, and as I said that worked for me. This show needs to be zippier to keep viewers tuning in week after week and again they did that.



    A fast-paced episode that ended a bit prematurely in my mind, but I will still give the show a high grade. NCIS: LA has been consistently good this season, this was no exception.moreless
  • Quite a good episoede, actually! And I particularly found the idea of a tracking spray to be really fascinating! Really unusual!

    This was a good episode of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' which started off with a familiar face - that being the coroner and love interest of former main character Nate, named Rose.



    I thought the beginning scenes were phenomenal. It was suspenseful stuff right from the get-go and it built a nice platform for the rest of the episode to continue on.



    The 'Overwatch' system for tracking is really interesting! I am quite fascinated by the millions of different ways people can track you, and this was just mind-boggling for me!



    Hetty was as brilliant as ever in this one, with the intense scenes between her and Callen and the rock-clmbing wall! I really enjoyed how the episode ended, and it certainly gave a few lauhghs!



    I thought this was a great case, and my favorite bit was that an aspect of it remainde unsolved, with one canister missing. This could hopefully come up in 5-6 episodes, and that will make some really interesting stuff in the future!



    Keep it up, NCIS: LA, and I am really pleased with the way this show is going!moreless

    • Callen: Kensi, take Beaver, here, and check it out, will you?
      Deeks: Beaver? Really? Okay. No, that's fine. But if we're going to do a nickname, maybe we should do something cool, right? Like Diesel? Or, uh, or-or D-Rock? Or D-Unit? Just think about it!
