    Hey there folks.


    I just watch replay of "Jurisdiction" and "Ships in the Night" and seeing Abigail Boren that prospect above comes out my mind.


    Anyhow, what do you think?

    Maybe, I always thought "Army CID" would have made a cool show!

    As much as I like NCIS Los Angeles, CIS would be totally awesome. I love Boren and think she would be great, especially in the future, when NCIS ends.

    Um, just to be clear, I'm talking about Coast Guard Investigative Service.


    I really think there should be CG show. That branch of service is waaaaay too underused in fiction.

    don't you think that there are already too many of these types of shows?

    well it depends on how clever the writers use their gimmick.


    JAG is basically legal procedural, but with Navy.


    NCIS is CSI, but Navy-Marines


    NCIS LA is NCIS, but more 24-ish (they both set in LA).


    But Coast Guard? How many times CG is ever mentioned in TV? You can sell that; I'll watch CG show.

    I would like to see Diane Neal Who plays the character Abigail Borin to come back to NCIS for the final episodes of NCIS Season 8, she would be a perfect complement to the story and Gibbs, now than whe will have a story that will continue over several episodes.

    I would love to see a CGIS show! It would be awesome. You could deal with all sorts of stuff and show how they deal with crimes with only a small team and less resources than NCIS or any other Federal agency. Not to mention the crossover potential for NCIS/CGIS. I would back this idea, definately!

    I second you. I'm fed up with how excessively high-tech federal agencies portrayed in TV shows. Most writers seem to forget that investigative agencies still rely mostly on ol' good solid detective works, not the least is paperworks.
    Having a team whose sci-tech is falling behind will add more flavor and drama to the (potentially) CGIS the series.

    Yeah, I totally agree. CGIS provides the possibilities for numerous types of plotlines. You could have the standard anti-terrorist stories or the plain old "murder on a Coast Guard ship" or, for something more interesting, there's the counter-narcotics work the Coast Guard does, Fisheries and Environmental protection work, Drugs and Organized Crime - there's tonnes of potential storylines waiting to be explored!
