It is hard to believe, but the series just keeps getting better with few episodes being the exception. We can only hope that the spinoff is even half as good. It does appear to show promise. The characters are already becoming as approachable as the original NCIS crew. The plot swings and surprises appear to be there as well. The gadgets just keep getting more technical and innovative. Is there anyway that they can continue to improve in all these areas. Well, I for one am very hopeful, as it is truly one of the very few TV series worthy watching week after week.
