i have been a huge fan of ncis and the last 8 seasons have just set my expectation sky high. unfortunately this season, all 4 episodes have been a bit of a let down. the stories are not riveting enough and there seems to lack the usual chemistry between the key members. even gibbs head slapping of tony seems contrived. hoping to see much better stuff ahead. having said that its not a bad watch...just not as good as it has been!
