    I did not like the return of former castmember Getz, but this was a fun little episode here, that gave heavy focus to Rose, played by an actress currently stealing scenes on Showtime's Episodes.



    Solid, but not exactly memorable.

    This was a great episode where NCIS investigate the death into a marine who's death appears to have been covered up In this episode NCIS get the help of Nate who once again returns and finds it hard to question Rose who becomes a suspect in the cover up I liked the part near the end where Sam and Callen are undercover with Hetty and Nate and then Hetty has word with Sam at the end A really good mid season episode.moreless

    This was yet another amazing episode of what is fast becoming my favourite show... almost!



    The case being investigated here was very interesting. While I thought it was going to go in another direction, it still panned out to be really interesting.



    Aside from that, I was laughed SO hard as I watched those scenes in the funeral place with Hetty and her dead animal around her neck! That was GOLD - and then interrogating Sam at the end! SO FUNNY!



    Then there was the added bonus of seeing both Rose and Nate again, which was nice. I hope we do see some more of them - particularly Rose - in the future!



    Keep it up, LA! Sublime episode!moreless
  • Snoozefest incoming

    This show has seen better days. "Paper Soldiers", as it's titled, lacked any redeeming characteristics this show was built on. The episode sees one of its older characters return (Nate) for a few light hearted jokes but just like a mirage, he disappears. Honestly, I couldn't tell if this was a comedy show or a cop show because everything felt like it was trying to be humorous. Even the plot felt convenient to the point of hilarity. Did the old coot in the ending really think he was going to get in the way? We're talking about cops who finish chases and shootouts like they were child's play. And for all the plot's turns, the ending result just felt lame.moreless
  • Fan of the show but not seeing much future for it

    6.0
    Can't rate this episode with more than a "fair". Don't get me wrong, I truly love the show but every time I watch an episode it feels more like a comedy than a crime-drama show. For an NCIS spin-off it sure needs a lot more "substance" to compare it. Great characters and great stories but it still has a lot more to show us. I want to see the Kensi-Deeks "thing" to evolve for instance. Also, how come the team never loose a gun-fight or a fist-fight? Also, the cases need to improve a little so the show won't die. Love the show but you'll loose me eventualy.moreless
