  • The Fifth Man

    7.0
    Stronger than most of the episodes so far this season, but for the most part it was a thrown together storyline involving an over the top online game.



    I did like the opening scene before the explosion, and I did like the idea of Kensi interacting and reaching out to a troubled youth, but this show still could be so much beter.
  • Very good episode!

    This was another really good episode of NCIS: LA. Just like last week, I really enjoyed the case, and I was hooked on it from the start right till the end. I enjoyed Kensi's work with Astrid. I wonder if we will ever see her again? That would be nice. It was nice to watch. I loved Hettys comment at the end after the credits started rolling - they are usually brilliant, and that was the case again today! :P



    I would've liked the scene in the casino with Kensi & Deeks pretending to be a bikcering couple to be a little funnier, but aside from that, a great episode! Keep it up, LA!moreless
  • 4x03 - 5th Man

    7.0
    The beginning was pretty good. I actually expected something more action packed so I was pretty let down by the bad guy. I totally didn't feel like he was a threat. And I felt the revelation of the identity of the 5th man was so predictable I called it from the second Astrid ran by. I did, however, like Astrid and I'm kinda hoping to see her again since she and Kensi have bonded liek woah.moreless
  • Good watching

    Unusual crime yet might could happen. Showing few 'brainy' was interesting.

    I often enjoy kensey & deek but often their conversations are too long-winded... and get boring.

    Overall a god show
  • So much cheese

    5.5
    Overall a good episode, but with all the cheese in the middle I could bake a cheese cake. I know you have to fill time, but please show us pictures of the ocean or Kensi in a bikini. Not some guy whining about how bad a father he is for 5 minutes.
