You question how McGeek has a lot of money. It was established in previous seasons that he is a best selling author.
He wrote a book based on the NCIS team, with everyone slightly mis-named and mis-characterized. He caught a lot of teasing from the rest of the team as they read about themselves.
Veteran NCIS fans know this as well as they know how many boats Gibbs has built in his basement, the name of Abby's favorite beverage, the name of the one person who calls Gibbs "probie", and who killed Ari.
The only mystery left unexplained was the identity of the woman who always picked Gibbs up after a case in the early seasons.
I like the show. It has a decent story line as well as superb actors. It has wit, action, suspense, drama, romance and everything else you hope to see. USA has some of the best programs on the air in my opinion. However that being said, the show does have it's drawbacks. For me it is the errors with which they portray certain things. For starters, the salary for an NCIS Field Agent ranges from between $26,000 to $90,000 a year depending on their pay grade. That is assuming any of the characters in the show have reached that pay grade. It makes no sense for Agent McGee to be driving around in a Porsche or owning a $2,000 jacket on a government salary. The next thing that bothers me is the fact that each agent only gets one magazine for there weapon. All Federal Agents are issued spare ammo as well as body armor to wear on a regular basis. Next, seeing as how they are Federal Agents and Law Enforcement they should have vehicles equipped to roll code 3. Meaning flashing lights and sirens. The F.B.I. has them, U.S. Marshals have them, D.E.A. has them, Secret Service has them, A.T.F. has them, etc, etc. Bottom line, if they're cops they should have light and siren equipped cars. Also, their vehicles should be Ford or at the very least Chevy. Not many federal agencies have put the Dodge Intrepid or the Dodge Charger into active service except for local Law Enforcement for Traffic Divisions.
The script-writers have done a really great job composing absorbing scripts to enthrall viewers. Many times we could give Jethro a fat slap for being so acetic, and when will Tony reveal some more of his hunkiness? Is the relationship between Jethro and Jen going anywhere? We are seeing NCIS3 in South Africa at the moment on DStv but we are getting very tired of The Hallmark Channel calling it "Navy NCIS" when the "Navy" part of it is superfluous, since NCIS stands for "Naval Criminal Investigation Service" or something similar. I hope the makers of this movie will tell The Hallmark Channel to change the name. Otherwise it's an excellent show and we watch it often. However, we are tired of all the repeats. It's like GORD, just worse. When we have seen episodes, we get bored having to see it repeatedly, especially when the channel does this just for advertising revenue!
This is a such great show that hooked me up from the start. I love all the cast and the script and everything. The characters are so great and cool with all the funny things they are saying. The creator of this show should be so proud of himself for making such a good show. It's one of me favourite shows, that I'm watching every week when it don't have a break, which it have now. I really hope that it will be plenty more seasons with those great actors and the same energy in the script as it got now. One of the greatest shows ever.
When this series started on JAG, I thought that it was a great successor to an even better tv show. I was wrong - NCIS is the better show. NCIS follows the adventures of Leroy Jethro Gibbs and his team as they solve the crimes of the navy and the marines: Anthony 'Tony' DiNozzo, Timothy McGee, Abby Sciuto, Donald 'Ducky' Mallard, Ziva David, and Jimmy Palmer. A great tv show, unsurpassed by any of its kind. JAG was a great show when it was on, and without NCIS to add to it's legacy, it would have diminished into the memories of long-forgotted classics.
I dearly love NCIS. None of the characters is disposable. It is the group dynamic that I am drawn too more so than the cases every week. It is the character development, the interactions between the characters, the joys, the sadness, the lonliness, the ethical and moral issues that arise within their personal lives. The characters are diverse, not perfect and are flawed, three dimensional people. I love the interaction between all of them, but especially I love Gibbs and Ziva. I can not imagine the show without either of these two characters. I love with them bring franks in as well. I think that all of the actors do a very good job and they make a real effort to make this a character driven show rather than case based or tech driven.
I really did enjoy this episode. Much of the dialogue was cure and inivative. The romance between McGee and Abby was fun to watch even if she seemed to end it at the end. The only thing that bothered me about this episode was the fact that Officer Lisa was said to be based on Ziva. McGee even says "on you guys you, tony, ziva" in response to Gibbs's question regarding who the book is based on. McGee's novel is by no means first seen in this episode...it is discovered that he is a writer when McGee's sister comes forth to Tony with this imformation but before this the novel was seen in the episode "The Weak Link" which starred Sasha Alexander as Kate Todd. If McGee has always based his books on those whom he works with...which he admited Lisa was based on Kate Todd not Ziva David. The rough copy of the book we see on McGee's desk in the weak link could've been rewritten to include Ziva instead of Kate...but that was one big stack of pages and I personally don't see McGee's character rewriting a novel to include Ziva even if he was infatuated with her at first. Another fact that seems to concrete the theory that Lisa should be based on Kate was the fact that characters had names based on the names of the agents they were bassed on ... an easy correlation is seen between names like Tony and Tommy...Tibbs and Gibbs...and Amy and Abby ... lisa sounds nothing like Ziva but it is a common more classic name like Kate is. In short the episode slightly bothered me when Lisa was said to be based on Ziva and there is no fathomable way this can be soley accurate.
The show is great.It keeps you guessing till the very end. It is action packed and I just love the characters. My favorites are 1.Tony 2.Abby and then 3.Ziva I like the rest to of course. Overall it is a wonderful fabulous show and I hope it continues for a long time and that everyone continues to watch every week!!! I can't wait till the new season starts it is gonna be great, just remember it will probably continue into the series premiere of NCIS: Los Angelos so don't miss it :)!!! So I hope you all like my review it's my firts ever!!
i t ' s g r e a t i t h a s a c t i o n,h u m o r a n d g u e s s i n g w h a t h a p p e n s n e x t n o t l i k e m a n y o t h e r s h o w s . B e s t s h o w e v e r m a d e. A l s o a n o ther great show is Burn Notice.
This season finale was one of my most favorites for NCIS. Although they are always great at leaving you hanging for three months while you are waiting for that elusive NCIS fix. It's just a good thing all the previous seasons are available on DVD and soon this last season will be out.
I hated to see the harshness and animosity between Tony and Ziva and feel sorry for Ziva and the way she must be feeling so conflicted since she has always had a thing for Tony. Now I have to wonder how Gibbs is going to ride in on his white horse and save Ziva this time. We have to have her back. After all, she is one of us, she is no longer Mossad. Her heart belongs to NCIS. I think her father is a tyrannt who has used his own children is some horrible ways. I wouldn't mind seeing him taken out. Tony did do a fantastic job of handling Director David though. I thought he did great, just like Gibbs knew he would.
I love this show and I cannot wait to see what will be next season as I hope Zeva will return where she belong. I hope Tony and Zeva remain close friends because any other form of relationship will compromise the integrity of their workk as they are both passionate in nature. Love NCIS. Gibbs is amazing.... Dockie and Abby and Timothy and Palmer are indispensable because they all contribute to NCIS to make it such a great show. The acting and the plot are always breath taken and insatiable. I want more NCIS and I so need it now.
i think its time for zeva to leave the show.. her character isn't liked anymore.how can u trust her. i think the new ice agent will now join the team and zeva will stay in isreal. at least thats my opinion.. go tony and mcgee and gibbs . hopefully they will continue the show for many more years without spin offs like the rest of the shows out there such as csi.. stay original and true to the people that made this show such a hit. hopefully the new girl will be more like kate was and loyal. tony and gibbs r just awesome
I love,love,love this show.It's the best show I have seen on tv for a very long time. It has everything for everyone. Humor,love,danger,suspense,drama,and they story lines are the best and have so many twists. All the characters have such a great chemistry,and I love Abby's lab and Ducky's Autopsy. Finally,something about an agency that has rarely been talked about,let alone,made a tv show for.
I have always been fascinated with the medical field and forensics,and Abby's lab,Ducky's Autopsy,and the way everything about a case is pulled out bit by bit,leaves us staying in our seats waiting for what will happen next,and who did it?
The first time I saw this show, I didn't really understand what was going on. I'm pretty sure I was watching "Undercovers", which is probably the weirdest episode to come in on. But, since I'm a huugeee fan of criem shows, and I heard that's what it was, I gave it a chance. This would be one of the first decisions I would NEVER regret. Rarely do we find humor in the shadows of death, yet this show manages to keep viewers fixed partially on the case, and mainly on the unique characters. The writers must spend soooo long creating these works of art. Kudos to Shane Brennan for making oiur lives much, much happier. Also, this show is unique. All the movie references, the American idioms, and the Gibbs-slaps; actions that can only happen on other shows as a reference to this one. NCIS opens a whole new world for television, and trust me, I will gladly watch it.
NCIS is the best show that you're not watching. Working with a hand-picked team, Agent Gibbs investigates crimes against Naval personal, while dealing with demons from his past. The typical 'doesn't follow the rules' Gibbs role is played by the always wonderful Mark Harmon. His team is willing to follow Gibbs to the end of the world and back, and are willing to sacrifice everything for him. Agent Anthony Dinozzo (Michael Weatherly)comes from a sorted pasted as a disowned only child. He went to Ohio State University, and was injured, preventing him from pursuing a pro athlete career. He originally worked for the Baltimore PD, and was transferred to NCIS by Gibbs. As the Senior Field Agent, Dinozzo is Gibbs right-hand man, and was even put in charge of the team when Gibbs retired briefly.
Agent Timothy McGee (Sean Murray)is the geek of the group, and often deals with the technical stuff. He is often picked on by the other agents (Dinozzo always comes up with some sort of variation on his last name, like Mclovin') He is also an author, called Tom E. Gemcity, and writes books that are 'not based on real people' (even though they are)
Officer Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) is a liason officer for Mossad (Israeli intelligence) and was brought in to replace Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander) who was killed in Season 2. Her loyalties are often questioned, and she works hard to interrogate suspects, as opposed to assassinating them, as per her training.
NCIS is the best show on TV today. It's intriguing and fascinating, but not as macabre as some other shows. I really, really hope it's not being taken off the air and being replaced with the spin-off that's starting with tonight's episode.
I can't say as I'm as taken with the new characters on tonight's show as I was from the very first episode of NCIS other than Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J and can't say that I would go out of my way to watch it as I do NCIS. I guess it remains to be seen.
The cast of NCIS was terrific in tonight's episode, as always. Other than Kate being killed off, it's the best blend of characters I've seen in years. They always deliver! It was nice to have more of Ziva's life be revealed since there are usually only brief snippets. Tony, as always, is so narcisstic, but lovable at the same time - how does he do that? The show is only complete with Gibbs, Tim, Abby, and Ducky being a part of it!
I got hooked on NCIS on USA & it took me about a year to get cynical friends and family to try it. Too bad it was this year they decided to do so. Almost everything that made this show what it was, is gone. Why? Getting rid of Don B - the one person who could say no to Mark H? Maybe. I just know this season has been such a disappointment.I do have friends who are hooked on NCIS - hooked on the reruns on USA. How could TBTB take so much talent and such an opportunity to shine and just flush it?
The interaction between each of the cast members keeps the show interesting while moving the story forward. I love the womanzing DiNozzo with the virginal McGee. The banter between Ziva and Tony with heavy sexual tension. The crazy but wonderful Abby who always makes you want to go back to science in school and pay better attention. She rocks the lab and makes it fascinating along with always longing to see the newest goth fashions. I miss Jenny-she and Gibbs always were edgy and even she and DiNozzo had some flirtatious magic. This show gets better all the time but I want to see McGee run into Tony out with a crazy hot super model and then we get to watch DiNozzo melt into a puddle! You go Probbie!
i absolutley love this show. My wife gets sick and tired of reruns, but i dont. This is a better crew in my opinion than that of CSI. I love the cast and the characters. I am seriously addicted to this show. My favorite character is Gibbs. Retired Marine Gunnery Sgt. Need I say more. He is tough and can hold his own in a close hand to hand fight but his marksmanship is top notch (as was evident in epi south by southwest). My other fave is Ziva smokin hot female agent show can look gorgeous in an evening gown or in BDU's and can kill you with her little finger. Abbs is cool too, hot and smart, dangerous. This show is awesome all the way around. If you are not watching, get with the program.
This is one of the best shows I have watched of the few years, I can watch rerun after rerun, but the new NCIS's are the best, Please keep all the same actors and actresses they make the show. I think Mark Harmon fits his Character Gibbs to the mark, and Cote de Pablo (Ziva)she really knows her stuff, and then there is Pauley Perrette (Abby) she makes me even want to go back to school. And David McCallum I used to watch him all the time on The Man From U.N.C.L.E., I will watch the show always, hope they never take it off the screen.
NCIS would have to be the most awsome show on the planet ever! I can't miss and ep and even after I've watched it I'm left wanting more. The writers are amazing the way they put the show together with the twists, humour and the suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I love all the characters and the show just wouldn't be the same if one of them ever left. It seriously is one of the best shows ever and I recommend that everyone watches it! With Gibb's head slaps, Tony's humour, Ziva's english, Magee's geekyness and Abby's coolness what not to love?
I love all the shows and I'm kind of getting the hang of it and sometimes I say what might happen next and it's cool because sometimes I am right and sometimes not. I wasn't a fan at first but now seeing every episode I love it. You think one person killed the person dead but then there is always a twist and I love that. It makes stay on my toes and I'm just waiting and wanting to watch it. I can honestly say that this show is one of my best shows I have ever seen. Everyone must see it.
The NCIS show is about a particular investigation group in the Naval Criminal Investigative Service that do just what the name suggests. The interesting part is the twist and turns they take to solve the case.
This is such a great show because I enjoy shows that keep suspense and mystery high, maintains good action and incorprates some comedy. The suspense and mystery comes from the redirecting of focus. The story to each case is never straight forward which is a necessity otherwise it would be a boring show. The action jumps around from episode to episode which I like because it shows if the team needs to get something done they can do it by force or by reasoning. The comedy in this show is subtle and in my opinion the perfect amount. Not only is it the perfect amount for the show, but also enough to help develope each character too. Every character has a unique way of bringing comedy into the show. For example Ziva is from Israel and butchers american "sayings". For example she says, "I smell fish" instead of, "I smell something fishy". Overall I would have to say this is the perfect show that has a little bit of everything.
ncis is a very exillerating show that is dramatic but not too dramatic. i recomend it to everyone. this show has actors who play the parts very well. without these key characters the show may be nothing. my personal favorite actress is Pauley Perrette. she is funny and very cute. this show should last a lot longer hopefully. it airs a new episode every tuesday night that i recored so i can watch them over and over again. some would say it is almost addicting. with the characters it has got i believe they should introduce no more. ncis is a great show in my opinion.
N.c.i.s is a nice show.a crime procedural show mixed with the d correct amount of humour.d characters,a boss who is almost all knowin,trustworthy.a senior field agent who knows when to chip in the jokes when d show starts gettin tensed,a liaison officer who brings out d best in d senior field agent,a computer geek,a fabulous forensic scientiest and a down to earth medical examiner and iam talkin about gibbs,tony,Ziva,mcgee,abby and ducky.the show has had its ups and down.something lyk d death of kate didnt go down well with people but they did well to find a splendid replacement in Ziva,tony near shave with death because of the y-pestis and when gibbs finally got to kill ari.the relationship between tony and jeanne and d breakup,gibbs nearly dyin,retired and later reinstated, findin out gibbs once had a wife and daughter he truly loved,jenny shephard's death,the team's disbandment and their comin back together,not to forget tony's frameup.best crime show ever aired.hope it still has many season in it.
NCIS is the best criminal investigation series out there. It combines interesting cases, the latest technologies and drama together in a good blend. Every episode stands on its own, but also longer story lines are used. Aspecially the characters in the serie make it fun to watch. Gibbs, the head of the investigation service, as being a firm hand with a rich history. Tony, one of the investigators, being the insufferable women-hungry know-it-all. Kate and later Zeva, the other investigator, being the fresh women influence. Ducky, the pathologist, which is a walking encyclopedia. Abby, the forensic scientist, a gothic with a fling for the nerds. And many others.
i love this show i have watched it scince the 3rd season i love this show it is the best show in the world. one main reason i love it is because it is like real work place and it is not over exagerated like csi and other shows it is things that aare real and relationships and fun of a work place. i also like it because it can have friendships, relationships, fun, and sadness and still have a main foocus on the crimes that take place in the show. i love tony and ziva they are the best couple and yes i know they arnt a couple YET i think they will be i never could see tony and kate cuase u dont really like kate and her and tony were more brother sister and i also love mcabby mcgee and abby they are sooo cute together. i also like jibbs gibbs and jenny i was sad when she dies but that what makes this show what is is when people die and the team must rally together to catch and arrest the killer. overall this is the best show.
i love all the character abby, mcgee, tony, ziva, gibbs, jenny, ducky, palmer, and kinda vance
best show ever i have 3, 4, and 5 seasons on dvd i watch at last 3 episosodes a day
anyway ncis is my all time fav show and i never want it to end i want it to at least go on for 8 seasons if not more
ncis will last forever hopefully
I watch a lot of crime dramas--well, I used to. Then I caught an NCIS marathon one weekend. It's not one of my favorite shows, but I can't watch other crime dramas that much anymore. In comparison, NCIS makes the rest of them look glamorized and silly.
I watch a lot of crime dramas--well, I used to. Then I caught an NCIS marathon one lazy weekend. It hasn't become one of my favorite shows of all time, but I can't watch any other crime dramas like I used to that much anymore. In comparison, NCIS makes all the rest of them look glamorized and silly. The light-hearted dialogue and friendly dynamics between the characters seems much more realistic to me.
The one gripe I have about this show is the character Abby. Don't get me wrong, I think Abby is adorable and a sweetheart and would definitely want to be friends with her if she were real, but she doesn't fit into a show where all of the other characters are deeply developed and realistic. She behaves like a 12-year-old child and doesn't really have a well-defined personality. It's like the writers think her style of clothing can make up for her lack of personality. Personally, I feel like she comes off as "Gothic-Wannabe Barbie."
Other than Abby, great show, great characters, great balance of drama and comedy.
NCIS is one of the few Dramas that i have picked up from my local TV station, and then one of the fewer again that i have given high ratings. There are dozens of police/investigation shows sprawled across every television station, but non that compare to NCIS. Im generally against shows of this kind, there are far to many police csi programs doing the same thing, NCIS jumps out of the pack and distinguishes from the rest. While it has all the usual criminals, murders, quirky phrases, it also has an excellent character chemistry between the team at NCIS, for which has made me love the show and the characters, the most notable is the male & female lead..always taking cheap shots at each other. There are only a few shows that i can say that i have enjoyed every episode, this is one of them, Fun, entertaining, clever & a cast to grab your attention.
Is there a better show than NCIS? Who had ever heard of NCIS before it was on telly? I didn't.
I'm really happy that I started watching NCIS since the first episode and I've never missed one.
Also the characters are so great! Abby is my 'favourite favourite' when still I was in my goth scene, she was my inspiration. Ooh, I love Timmy, Jimmy, Tony, Gibbs, Ziva, Ducky, Abby n____n I want to hug them all.
Everything about NCIS resonates happiness, now we won't settle for less, everything about NCIS is so easy to love.
They need to make so much more of this show, at least 5 seasons more so: WEITERGEHEN!
