After three good episodes, the show hit its first bump in the road, with an average, filler episode tonight. Outside of LL Cool J threatening to smack somebody in the head with a sandal, there was no noteworthy dialogue or scenes in tonight's installment. They hyped on the commercial a good, action-packed sequence with the battering ram, but a woman simply tapped the car and that was it. Hardly the kind of intensity you would see on a show like 24 or The Unit.
NCIS: Los Angeles is still one of the best new shows to be launched this year, but this was a pretty dull episode.
