The original NCIS set a very high standard for an ensemble cast, and with several other very high quality law based programmes, NCIS: LA was always going to have to really hit the heights to be noticed.
And that is where there is a certain level of frustration in watching it. The cast are great, headed up by Oscar-winner Linda Hunt, who is always good value to watch. Sometimes the writing rather lets them down. The first season was all about finding its feet, and it did, but the second season seemed a bit more patchy.
In season 3 the solution to the mystery of G Callen made for compelling watching, so the next two episodes were bound to struggle a little by comparison, they were however strong episodes, but the two most recent have been rather disappointing. Some loose ends, confusing set ups, strange comedy situations, I had expected better. A bit of a shame, I would have given season 1 an 8, season 2 a 7.5, but season 3 only scores a 6.5 as of now. I will continue watching, things may pick up.
