  • The first disappointing NCIS episode I have seen: unexciting and implausible story.

    This is my first NCIS episode review at I started watching NCIS about a month ago -- had to watch something after "Monk" ended. I have about 50 episodes on my DVR, and I have seen about two dozen episodes. One thing that struck me about the series is that I had never seen a bad episode, ... till now! Except for some of the usual good character sparring, the episode was flat, slow and far-fetched. A lot of the episodes are far-fetched, but they had excitement and creative detail. Not this one. The motivations and tactics in the episode (from the mother-in-law point of view) was crazy -- spending $28,000 to hire a detective to see if the guy (her boyfriend) was "dirty"? And he had no real relation to her girls' murders of 20 years ago. Nuts.
