  • Spectacular!

    This was a really great case in a downright brilliant episode of NCIS LA. There were some interesting scenes, especially with a fake fight between Callen and Sam, and all the subesquent svenes with Callen undercover. Those were done really well!



    I agree with oen of the previous reviewers who said they could have done the scene with Callen and the cyanide more dramatic, but that was just a minor criticism from me, in an otherwise flawless case!



    Also some great humour with Hetty putting off the prank of the year at the end! I was laughing for about 10 minutes over that! Hilarious!



    Also enjoyed the last scene with Callen and the kid.



    Great episode! looking forward to netx week!moreless

    A good little episode here taking place on a ship. Seeing the characters go all Burn Notice and play different people for an extended period of time was a welcome derivation not just for them, but for us as viewers who think the current formula is a bit repetitive.



    Strong episode.

    Good episode, but in my opinion they could have done the thing with callen a little more dramatic.







  • Very realistic

    Unfortunately there are many who think they will create a new world by killing others.

    This was very realistic.

    Well played.

    I love this show, the storyline was good, but i did tune in & out of this episode(I Dont Know Why). When they mention The Strip Clubs, Pornography & The Sexual Deviants of people in their own homes doing what they do behind closed doors, i tuned back in. Overall Good Episode.

      Deeks: What? We will?
      Kensi: I don't like to see him beg. And plus, he would mope all the way to Point Mugu if we didn't.
      Deeks: This is fantastic news, but I don't beg.
      Kensi: Oh, you beg.
      Deeks: I definitely don't mope. 'Cause you're the moper. You're, like, Mopey Dick.

      Deeks: "You're like Mopey Dick".


      "Moby-Dick" (1851) is a novel written by Herman Melville.  It is considered to be one of the Great American Novels and a treasure of world literature. The story tells the adventures of wandering sailor Ishmael, and his voyage on the whaleship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael soon learns that Ahab has one purpose on this voyage: to seek out Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm whale. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg, which now drives Ahab to take revenge.
