it's hard to say whos my favorite..all the charactors are great and fit so perfect..for me the best show on tv ..and i'm waiting for tony and zeva to welll you know ...on some episodes i feel that they already had a thing and they'r keeping it very quiet..i think gibbs would give them both a major "GIBBS" ( what i call the slap to the back of the head)..btw does anyone know what tv show gave ducky is fame besides NCIS?
I love this show..I miss Jenny Shepard soo much... But thats that.. Anyways this show nvr gets old .. I hope that they nvr give Gibbs a lover.. I miss fornel, court and I would love to see Sam and fallen work a case that leads them to d.c. And Vance has the teams back more often. If any of the cast ever left it wouldn't work.. Just look at what happen to law and order svu
NCIS is a show that has it all and then some. It is never boring. The storyline is very true-to-form. The dialogue is very today. And, the characters are to indeed to-die-for! Ripped from TODAY'S HEADLINES the storyline reads as though the murder or murders are happening that very day or perhaps the night before. Whatever the time-frame the stories are GREAT! The cast members of this fun series are absolutely wonderful. I enjoy them all and think you will as well. Two Thumbs Up!
Meaning that the writing should be best ever for #1 drama on TV but instead we get MANY recycles scenes and plot. I am one of NCIS' biggest fans which is why I feel I must be honest about the lazy writing. Just because you are #1 doesnt mean the writers can slack off - it should make them step the wuality of the scripts even higher. I am tired of being disappointed and let down by lack of dramatic conslusions to story arcs. Arcs that use to last numerous epis in a row - now are sporadic with lame endings. Example; Tony's mission for SecNav - not only do the writers make the rare injuries very lame and unrealistic (how many times do they resort to a sling?) - they should never have put 6 episodes (approx) between Tony getting shot and the next episode (Housekeeping). You lose momentum. Also, the ending of that 3 episode arc could have been SO much better!!
Instead you resort to recycling the same scene as the also anticlimatic ending to GIbbs/Reynosa story line (bating villain to blow up the wrong safe house!!) I mean come on! Give loyal fans some credit for noticing those details!! That epi could have been so much more dangerous and nail biting and would have loved to see it last more episodes with Casey trying to capture/kill EJ AND Tony. I am sure some fans will hate this review but it's only cuz I love the show and want to see it STAY number one - that I have such high expectations. Everyone should - especially the writers.
The episode title says it all, the season had started to have too many long story arc villians...Latham, Stratton, EJ seemed like she could turn out to be for a while, and possibly Sec-Nav. To completely avoid gov't conspiracies and agents turned bad on a show that has lasted this long would be impossible; but that many all at once, there was no way to follow all those storylines and still have single episode crimes to solve. So they killed off a couple. The chips from episode one were all about the money, no larger shadow games, fait de complet. and I liked that.
EJ's story is done, she can always pop back in for a sec but not only is she not a romantic poss ibilty for Tony, she damn near slaps him in the head and pushes him into Ziva. Also an efficient and entertaining way to finally move the will they/wont they thing forward.
Is Sec Nav a good guy who lied for the team, or just covering his bases? Im not sure yet. Stratton knew about Gibbs' Mexico issues, so someone else is going to try to use that against him, which is good because they left that story open for too long.
Seriously, the writers cleaned up what could have been a long term bogged down set of stories in one quick and entertaining episode. thw writers from Dexter could learn a thing or two from this episode.
I disagree with the person who wants to "move" Gibbs to a new team. Are you crazy??? This team has that magical mix that makes a great show and provides it with staying power. They lucked out when Kate left and Ziva moved in (I loved Kate too) but it seldom works when a main character leaves. I haven't warmed up to the Director but it still works. Miss "Franks" -- hope it was HIS decision to leave. Great show. Don't change the ingredients that work so well together.
I know spin-offs can be a disaster with bad casting and poor writing (read: Criminal Minds - Suspect Behavior), and in truth despite it's success, NCIS LA is not the "must watch" TV that NCIS is, in my opinion (with the exception of Sam, G., Kensi the casting is questionable).
However, as NCIS is in it's 9th season, I think it is worth taking some risks.
What we learned from Gibb's "retirement" to Mexico is that Tony and the crew can carry the show without Gibbs. Michael Weatherly's range as an actor is impressive and he has been running away with the show the last few seasons.
I think this team has given all it can in it's current format (as evidenced with the disaster that was The Penelope Papers). It is time to split up the team.
It is time for Mark Harmon to move on so that the writers can develop his character more. Gibbs is not a nice person, Gibbs is not a forgiving person. He has a dark side to him that the show has flirted with for years and now is the time to explore that in greater depth.
I would like to see the Mark Harmon move away from D.C. to a new city with a new team. A little less comical and more of a focus on the harsher sides of reality without going so far as to cross over into the realm of Criminal Minds. Let Gibbs be more of the bad-a** that he is (though I fear it might take the death of a close friend (i.e., current co-cast) to bring that out of him (a la Kate).
The rest of the NCIS team stays as it with occasional interactions between all three teams. I want to see more from the Tony character than we are able to get with Gibbs as the perpetual father figure. These two characters have grown too powerful to contain in one show with reasonable storylines.
Time to take some risks and let the characters grow.
Abby is soooo cool, love her n love the way gibbs loves her. Want to see Ziva kick more ass like she did in the beginning. I do still think of Gibbs in St Elsewhere tho lol, still as suave. Love geeky mcgee, as I am a mmrpg gamer so I get him lol N tony U do make me laugh :) guys - please never change the line up - except for the director, u can go for broke on that one lol. Love ducky too, but cant help thinking of him in great escape as i watch him - he hasnt changed a bit. Also, why isnt Plamer on the credits???
I resisted watching this show for many years, I guess I was locked into other favorites. But last year I was home sick and started watching, I have not stopped. If I am home and it is on I am watching. With USA I think I have pretty much caught up
Tony is one of the best characters I have ever seen. He cracks me up no doubt, but is also that dependable friend you like to see. When I first started watching I wasn't sure how serious an agent they wanted him to be until I saw the episode where he dives in the water and saves the girl and Gibbs from the car Gibbs backed off the dock. Seeing things out of order in reruns it was the first time I saw that side of hischaracter.
Add a new person that pops in every once in awhile a US Marshall that was in the corp.with Giggs 10 yrs younger that is sort like all four but only Gibbs and Fornell know about has been divorced twice two kids all so has a thing for red heads but none of Gibbs ex's and has a common name like Jon Smith from the south east carry a old colt army single action and a 9mm for back up where a hat log rider coat and drives a old 78 Z28
I will definitely say that this show is truly a guilty pleasure for me. I love it!! I didn't start watching though until a couple months ago so I know I am not a real fan like those of you have been watching from the beginning. I didn't watch it at first because I thought it was just another CSI show and I never got into those, but then I watched an episode with my parents since they like NCIS, too and I loved it. Abby is amazing, Tony is hilarious, McGee and Ziva are both pretty cool in their own ways, and Gibbs reminds me of Don Eppes from Numbers, and then Ducky!! How can you not love a show that has a character called Ducky in it!! I've continued to watch the new episodes, but I have also begun watching the show from the beginning. I am currently on season 3.
As a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer, I appreciate the fact that most of the episodes include topics that are very believable and close to what I think are situations the real NCIS would be involved in.
I think that NCIS is the best military related show currently airing. My suggestion for improvement would be to get David James Elliot, (JAG's Harmon Rabb),and Catherine Bell, (JAG's Sarah MacKensie), on as guest stars. I'm sure it would be easy to work them into a script.
NCIS is a crime drama about the Naval Criminal Investigative Service's Major case response team lead by Leroy Jethro Gibbs. It is fantastic Donald P. Bellisario has done an amazing job., It is flawlessly written and casted with mind blowing plot twists and amazing conclusions. Donald P. Bellisario has made the world a better place for all.
I signed up for tv.com because I noticed you had a ton of "Transformers" episodes. I'm trying to view some of the "Vitory" series from "Transformers" but I can't seem to figure out how to view the episodes. I then went to "NCIS" and see that there is a "watch" section on the page to view the episode. I don't, however, see this option on the pages with the Transformers videos. Can you please explain to me what I need to do to watch these episodes? Thanks. I really want to watch this and other shows that don't have the "Watch now" section. I'm not very computer literate so maybe I'm missing something that someone can help me with. Thank you all so much.
NCIS is a show with intriguing storylines and some decent banter between the main characters. However, for me, the show completely lost it's fire when they killed off Kate at the end of Season 2. The character of Ziva was intriguing in the beginning. The Mossad agent with ninja skills, contacts in high places and a chuckle worthy inability to use common phrases and sayings. However, it got old REAL fast. Now she's nothing but a tag along to the other main characters that actually have a personality. Where Kate and Tony had an entertaining brother/sister, sexually charged, competing-for-Gibbs-approval relationship, Ziva and Tony have intermittent conversations involving sexual innuendos but they never generate anything close to chemistry. The only saving grace for the show is that McGee's finally gotten a backbone and starting giving as good as he gets from Tony. Nevertheless, it's worth tuning in for if you're after some light comedy relief and interesting plot twists.
it will always be my favorite show and one of the best's show on tv !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:) this show is awesome and i love all the episodes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!the other shows are not bad but NCIS is much better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am a big fan of this show up until after season 7. I still like this show, but it's getting a bit more sappy.. What I mean is there's not alot of action (i.e) gun fire, explosions like there use to be. I'm not sure if they have new writers, but if they do, they need to bring back the old style of writing back. For instance McGhee rarely goes out into the field and Tony seems to be growing up and not as funny as he once was. And where's the head slaps from Gibbs.. Please go back to the old style and and action of season 7 and before. I'm afraid that I might be drifting away from this show. I don't record it like I use to. And now we have Barrett's team. Are they aiming towards replacing the old team (Gibbs and co.)? If they do that, then I no longer will be a fan of the show.
I'm not a fan of dramas but NCIS really changed my mind! I'm new to the show, I first watched it with my grandfather when there was a all day marathon. I was trying to read a book but I couldn't consentrate on reading. I admit I was lost throughout the episode I was watching but my grandfather caught me up. After I finished watching it for the first time I was hooked! As I mentioned, I'm not a big fan of dramas because usually I find them quite boring, but NCIS has the right mixture of comedy and drama. I think the cast is amazing! They have great chemestry between them. I've only been watching NCIS for a few months now and I recommend the show to everybody I know!
I had given up on most police procedurals and tried to stick with sitcoms. That didn't last too long since many sitcoms aren't very good, but I was determined not to join the procedural world. But NCIS is different. No matter how many 8 hour marathons USA Network has, I watch them all. I don't even mean I Tivo them first - I watch live. I know this is near blasphemy, but my least favorite character is Abby. She is slightly, more than slightly, annoying. After 8 years, you know Gibbs doesn't care how you got to the answer, just what the answer is. Really, let's give up the fancy, overly chipper, overly technical explanations and just give the answer.
I used to love McGee, but he lost a little too much weight for me so he isn't quite as cute anymore. His character used to have a little more humility, and although i appreciate his growth, I miss the cute, timid Timothy McGee.
Gibbs is a little too complicated at times, but he is the key to the show. Overall, good stories, but Gibbs always knows the answers. I'd love to see someone else win one for once. Great shakeup this season with the single perp focus. Hope it stays on for another few years.
I love this show! It's probably one of the best shows ever! It has everything in it. A little romance, some comedy, oh and alot of drama too. Which is why this show is so freakin awesome! I love Tony and McGee, they are almost like brothers even though Tony likes to piss off McGee. I think that they should make it last for at least 10 seasons. It doesn't really ever get old. I mean, there's always something new or unusual about the case they're working on and I hope that the producers don't decide to screw it up or cancel it.
but recently the show just lost it taste and some times i just leave the episode without continuing it beacuse iam just bored...hey iam a huge NCIS fan but they need to have new ideas maybe new characters will be better, but i guess we will have to wait the new season to see...........just wait.
I didn't watch NCIS when it first got aired. Actually, I didn't watch it until the summer of 2010. But when I started to watch, I got addicted and now I can't wait to see the new episodes.
The relation among the Team members, the team members, the characteristics of everyone on the team, the cases, the characters on recurring roles, everything you could think of are amazing. The way Gibbs acts, his rules, the way he honors Marines and their families are to be admired and applauded. I do hope that the shows continues on his tracks without major changes.
