While NCIS continues to be stagnant, its spinoff series NCIS Los Angeles continues to pop out some interesting storylines, such as the one in tonight's episode. Anytime you get a hostage-themed episode, even if it is not really about the hostage crisis, it is hard to mess things up.
This show is really starting to find its groove within its second season. While I am not entirely in love with the Eric Christian Olsen addition, it is hard to argue that this show is not one of the most action-packed on television. Tonight's episode was as good as Burn Notice...seriously.
