Is it me or has the writing on this show really gone down hill and the acting with it!! Deeks' over acts but he's shown talent before so I'm thinking it's the scripts not him. Heddie has been terrible this season.. her lines don't fit and her facial expressions are confusing!? I'm really surprised this show was renewed.. GET NEW WRITERS, ASAP
The best group of actors and actresses on TV for the past 8 years and is still going strong. Fantastic team chemistry, cohesion having fun. Love every episode. Actually, I bought all the DVD. Wish was available on Blu-ray disc.

Stop end this show....... I hope the character expansion continues.
Hot Water was a terrific episode, but the weakest scenes were Deeks in the LAPD lobby (don't CARE where the desk sergeant proposed or where he proposes, and he's an LAPD detective and a lawyer--just walk back and see Granger) and Deeks in interrogation--way too long. Don't give him too much attention; it slows the show down. That's one reason this season has been better than last season.
I have always loved NCIS and NCIS:LA,, not New Orleans. I have never liked the actor that plays Granger, he just never seemed to fit in. I hope to live a long, long life and have nothing against the elderly, but Granger has always been frail, the sex scene he had was horrifying; and now he can't speak. I am sorry for the actor personally, but professionally he looks and sounds terrible.
Few shows can pull off a storyline extending over several shows and NCIS LA is NOT one of them! I love the premise of this show and the characters but it is losing that quirky, funny quality that marked this show. The writing of the extended plots is poor and the acting forced and without energy. Do everyone a favor and keep your plots limited to one show. Maybe you need new writers who can pull off the writing demands of single show. And find the mole before we all go underground due to boredom!
It seems that Sam needs a little sensitivity training. Seriously, Sam says "she knew what she signed up for" when Kensington ended up in a coma facing possible paralysis. It really was a disppointment. These disjointed episodes are connected by the characters and their relationships as they navigate their dangerous jobs. Maybe in a later episode Sam will have to confront his feelings, but for now he doesn't seem to have any.
No fire fighter would ever enter a burning building without their scba masks on yet no one does in this episode.. Get it together writers/ producers.. If your gonna air this kind of stuff get it would mask be dangling from their waste.. Sure there is more that could be picked apart ...
What's going on? This show going down the path of no return (The cancellation repository). Writing is bad, acting is bad, very campy and unprofessional. First couple seasons I would rate a lot higher.
This is a typical shows sequence every time: Case presented through a death or mystery, initial introduction banter between characters. Back and forth communication in OPS, where everyone takes a turn talking. Next, get people to talk and admit to terrible crime. Finally, RAID!!! with t-shirts and Sam bobbing head up and down. Job done, finished. Maybe throw in some feels here and there to make you cry.
This show has had some excellent seasons over the years but the last two have been abysmal and getting worse. The first ten minutes of every episode is wasted with irrelevant cutesy banter that we have all heard a hundred times. Because there have been so many episodes of shows in this genre, they need a strong plot thread through each season. Everything that can be done, has been done for stand-alone episodes.
Writing now is either lazy or incompetent and I am at the point of abandoning what used to be one of my favourite shows.
So disappointed in last nights show. What was director thinking when he allowed Sam to be from Africa!!??? After less then a minute of hearing accent (or more like a sad joke of an accent) script should have been altered. SHAME ON WHOEVER allowed that to be put in. After a couple of minutes of hearing Sam I was embarrassed for him and show. I did not even finish watching. Was not worth my time. Yuck
I'm sorry to say for this series that the original NCIS is much better than this one. Acting here is bad, poor and the hopping around behind guns is hilarious:) Apparently there was a need for much shooting, so, here we are... pfffffffffff. The actors do not convince as real people, In the original NCIS this was very very much better
You'll understand that my thumb has a downward direction:)
I've never missed an episode of this series and I love all of the actors what playing it but there's one thing I truly truly want to know Kinsey if anybody's ever noticed in her right eye when she looks to the left what is wrong with her I why is it always look like there's a black ring near the cornea find the white building next to the color I love her acting but I'm just trying to figure out what's up with the right eye
Oct. 12, 2015: Heddy is no longer prominent in NCIS Los Angelus. She gives character to the show; she holds the characters together; she brings mystery so why don't we see her much now? And why do we see more of acting is terrible! He has no personality, a monotone voice, no Heddy back!!!!
I like this show so much better than the original NCIS (can't stomach the Tony character any more) and NCIS: New Orleans is just silly beyond belief. The accents are ridiculous and wouldn't be believed for a second by anyone who has ever lived in the south. So I watch the LA version because it is so much more about the investigations and less about silliness!
Absolutely love this show. The cast is the best of the (3) NCIS shows currently on tv. Initially liked the show, but I must say it got even better when they added Marty Deeks. Just love his character. The entire cast is perfection. Very seldom dislike one of the scripts. I don't watch the other two NCIS shows, but never miss NCIS LA.
I love this show! I watch every episode. But what I don't like is that the show is almost always about Callen and his past. I understand that he want answers, but why does in every season there are (a lot of) episodes about him? Or Sam? I have nothing against them and their stories, but come on, be creative writers. Why not a story or more around Eric? Or Nell? Or even Deeks? And maybe Kensi. Because it seems that it is always about Callen and Sam. Move on!
The show took me a couple episode to get hooked but now i love this show. This TV show is my favorite TV loved the little things that are different between the charters,and all the mission and investigate are all ways different , because It is fun to watch.
Last night's portrayal of a sniper with PTSD coerced into assisting terrorists with a murder is another insult in support of the ridiculous Homeland Security warnings about patriotic Americans. A couple of weeks ago it was Kensi looking at some nutcase bomber's squat and saying it looked like some "crazy Tea Partier". What's with this Leftist crap? Find me one case in the past 15 years involving a Conservative. Sick of it . . .
I have to admit that it took a few shows to get me hooked. Probably because I was so in love with Gibb's team on the original NCIS. BUT gradually I became hooked. There is No comparison between the 2 shows. They are 2 separate shows & no reason to compare.
-- This group I really enjoy watching. Sometimes the writers have Deeks & Kensi 'talking' too too much which becomes boring quickly.
-- But G & Sam - oh, m, what men..............
- AND I love their boss (forgive I just had a brain freeze & forgot her name - shame on me) - But she is a feisty older woman and so short she's cute yet very forceful.. She adds that extra ump to the show.
-- AND the 'nerds' are great..... Would not be same without them.
Great team to watch..
AND THE BEST of ALL THE NCIS SHOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I find that it's not too gruesome, too many firefights or explosions. TPTB leave many breadcrumbs just like you would find in every other successful show but they also give enough to sustain viewers and keep us watching. If you're not a Densi or Neric fan there's always the Sam/Callen bromance or the weird Hetty/Granger relationship to keep one interested. Although some episodes are predictable and episodes sometime make you feel deja vu, all in all it's enough to keep me faithfully watching.
Just seen this episode, finally one of the NCIS group of shows has a decent storyline that they did not butcher. I for one would like to see if the NCIS brass could possibly spin-off a "several" episode run filmed in Afghanistan with the Afghan soldiers that were on in this NCIS LA tonight. It might give all of us North Americans a better insight into the problems their country faces, we're quick to judge these people and their countries. As a foot note, we just watched "American Crime" pilot,pretty realistic portrayal of what it's like on the streets of many major American cities of late - Hence why I said that we are quick to judge other countries, people and cultures around the world, look at our own streets and the crime here at home.
