I honestly don't know how to describe the feelings I get while thinking about the latest episode of NCIS. I have happiness, humour, fear, nervousness, compassion, love, sexual tension, and I definitely feel angry, because the next episode of NCIS isn't on for another 7 days! It's just the connection you develop with the characters after the very first episode. You can feel the chemistry between each one of them, and it makes you feel involved.
One thing I can say though is that it's the most underrated TV show ever. Because of its predecessor (JAG) and cousins (CSI, CSI: Miami, etc), at first glance people assume it's 'another spin-off series'. But it's so much more than that! So much more. Unlike the other typical crime/drama series, NCIS is not based solely on solving a crime. There's a tight-knit team who work together in crime-fighting, but after understanding and getting to know each character, their personalities and habits, flaws and strong points, you begin to realise that it's not a crime show; it's a drama that involves crime.
As you watch it more and more, it's much clearer that the crime story is really just a plot-filler. It helps link up the interaction between the characters and is so different from the typical cliché 'I meet my friends in a coffee shop every Wednesday'. They meet at the headquarters of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. They are all connected through the crimes they investigate, but the crime is not the show. The characters and interaction between them is absolutely the audience grabber.
Gibbs (Mark Harmon), being the greying, good-looking, powerful older boss; the on-off couple of Abby (Pauley Perrette), the pretty, intelligent Goth who has the same bubbly personality as puppy, and McGee (Sean Murray), the adorable, apprehensive, brilliant computer nerd; Tony (Michael Weatherly), who… well let me just say, when defining the words meaning ‘attractive’ in the dictionary, they had this guy in mind. He’s the comic relief of the show, plus a gorgeous, charming, sexist womaniser who always manages to make an gratuitous yet hilarious joke about anything; Kate (Sasha Alexander), the pretty, Catholic schoolgirl type who sort of makes it her duty to keep Tony in line; and of course Ducky (David McCallum), the aged, wise coroner who always knows what's going on without being told, and who always has a story for anyone who's listening, all make up the brilliant NCIS cast who work so well with and around one another, and who mesh together into what is possibly the best drama shows of all time.
Jethro Gibbs romantically attracted to Jamie Lee Curtis, give me a break!! First time I have ever felt upset with this shows direction since the beginning. She looks old enough to be his mother, OK maybe not mother but much older sister, he would never be interested in her, all the other woman he has been linked to were so attractive.Poor Gibbs must be mad at the writers or at least the casting department, I can't even imagine Ducky with her, his last romantic interest was a Charlies Angel!!
Jamie Lee is fine on the show but please take her out as a romantic interest!!! It is hard to watch, and I am a woman over 40. This last episode where even the young guy was all over her, come on!!!!! Is she secretly a ghost writer on the show living out her fantasies? My ratings were all 9's and 10's until this nonsense. GET GIBBS SOMEONE ELSE!!!!!!!
NCIS is a crime drama show about a team of federal agents that investigates crimes related to Marine Corps personnel. This team is made up of four agents: Gibbs (Mark Harmon), who is the team leader, a skilled investigator and interrogator. Working under Gibbs is Special Agent Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), a former Baltimore homicide detective, womanizer and movie-quoting who gets the job done despite being the 'clown' of the group. The team also has Special Agent McGee, a computer geek who is usually teased by Tony, and Officer Ziva David, a former Mossad liaison officer and assassin, who is a very skilled fighter.
Helping them, they have Abby Sciuto, an energetic Goth who is the lab tech, and Ducky Mallard, the medical examiner.
This show combines action and humor, mostly lead by Michael's character. Some episodes are better than others, but this show gets better every passing year.
Overall, it's a good show if you want to laugh and have a good time. And if you start, you won't be able to stop!
What happened, get Jamie Lee Curtis off the show, this used to be our very favorite. She needs to stick to selling yougurt, not bossing Gibbs around. It doesn't look authentic, she is nothing, get rid of her before we lose interest.
No not my Gibbs with her, what were the directors thinking, bye bye Jamie.
I do not know why the casting director, who does such a great job with all the other characters (except the Directors), cannot pick a woman for Gibs. Each one gets worse. Why not just hire Pam Dawber and be done with it. We would finally have someone believable for him...these others--even his x-wives--are embarrassing. Get rid of Jamie Lee Curtis before you lose the whole show.
NCIS, a show bringing us the inner workings of the government agency that investigates all crimes involving Navy and Marine Corps personnel, regardless of rank or position. This is the new season and I hope it is about love.
I had been waiting all summer for the new episode and I was not disappointed at all. This is going to be a great season. I am hopeing that Tony and Ziva get closer and closer every week. Ziva looked so lost and she needs to see how Tony feels about her. It will only make it a stronger team. Abbey and Duckie I feel will have a strong season getting Tony and Ziva together, because they are romantic's at heart. Gibbs is the father figure that Ziva and Tony never had. You can feel the true caring of the whole crew.
I love this show. I don't care how many times I've seen the episodes, I never get bored. The humor, the tragedy and the distinctive personalities of the characters make this show must see TV. My favorite main characters are Gibbs, McGee, Abby and Ducky. My favorite episodes are the ones where Gibbs sticks up for our men and women in uniform (and of course his gut is always right). And I have always enjoyed the dynamic between Gibbs and Fornell and Gibbs and Franks.
Some of my favorite episodes: Call to Silence (Charles Durning is brilliant!!); Heartland (Daddy Gibbs); Hiatus I ? II; Silent Night; the Borderland arc.
I have been a fan of NCIS since the series began, but now the first time Jamie Lee Curtis comes on the screen, I change the channel. She comes across as arrogant, a know it all and definitely not a part of the team. I would hate to leave the show, but if she's comes back next season, I'm gone. What a perfect way to spoil a great series.
Please!!!!!! Get rid of JLC. She looks like a man, can't act, giggles all the time and is definitely not the type of woman for Gibbs. Also, you keep expecting her to bring out a cup of Activia at any time. You can definitely do MUCH better than her. Will never watch again. Hope you
pay attention to the people that keep you ratings up there.
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 have watched NCIS since it premiered, the first episode was very impressive and gripping, but had a twist to it that seperated it from other crime dramas. I am a huge fan of NCIS for a number of reasons. The writing is fantastic in 99% of episodes. The cases have me guessing until the end of the episode and the production team seem to incoperate many plot twists with most episodes. Having said this i have been disappointed with a few episodes in season 7, the writing wasn't up to the same standard, two episodes that stood out was faith and mothers day. These were good just not great.
The cast is very likeable, right from the pilot episode i could see this being a very likeable show in terms of cast. The NCIS team has got a lot of chemistry that has been built up over many episodes. It's great to see that a group of actors we knew nothing about, now are part of the family. The relationship between McGee and Dinozzo is funny pertically when McGee joined in the second season. Ducky is a really likeable and great character, so are the rest. Each character adds something special to the show. The sub stories in the seasons are very good, particually season 4, with the "Frog". I enjoyed the episodes with the arms dealer as it added another ongoing case throughout the season. It also revealed some information about lesser characters like Jenny (R.I.P).McGees novel storyline was funny and provided many funny gags.
The season finales are fantastic, the build to them as well. Just great. They are well written and show a great combination of action and emotion. My favourite has to be season 2 finale. Action and emotion packed. My least favourite is season 7 finale as the episode: 7.23 was great but the much anticiapted conclusion was a disappointment but still good. Overall there are a number of things that make this show great. I have loved this show and i hope it has a good few more seasons, but have more episodes like twilight, swak and truth or consquences. As long as the writing is good and nobody actors get fired. This show has a future. Sorry if i have waffled on
Thanks for reading :)
This smart, funny show is a winner. You get the navy, Mark Harmon looking good and gray, Napoleon Solo a bit older and wiser, a pleasant goth running the lab, ex-Secret Service chica Kate (?), Tony (resident sleaze), plus the "new guy." A reason to live every single Tuesday night.
The show has really gone downhill since CDP left. And even though GG promised he wouldn't replace Ziva, he already has done so. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, since he also lied about how many episodes Cote would come back for! I won't be surprised if the new character is horrible-I think every character GG has created was detested by fans (especially ones he enthused over, like Samantha Ryan). I have the feeling this announcement will cause more people to stop watching NCIS. There has already been an increase in the number of people signing the petition to get Cote back. I don't believe the ratings. I think they are fixed-most people I know have stopped watching since episode 2 this season and I have noticed fewer and fewer people commented and voting on the episodes this season. I used to like NCIS. Not anymore! CBS wake up-you let the wrong person go.
Of all the shows I have watched, this group of characters go so very well together that no matter if the show is the best written or not, the show is still well worth watching - because of this team....
I just love them............... and love to watch NCIS.
And for those who Think NCIS is no longer going to air - I read where Harmon (Gibbs) signed for another year....
BUT NOW will Miss Ziva.......................... The team is just so perfect - how in the world can they make this work.......... without her.
I am a long time fan of NCIS & have seen every episode, I enjoy all the characters & you can see that they all have wonderful chemistry. BUT I am concerned with the introduction of Jaimie Lee Curtis as a regular, because I would have to reconsider watching it because as soon as she is on screen I am cringing. I am supposed to be enjoying the show. not dreading what's coming next, she is a complete misfit can't they see that? There is not an ounce of chemistry even if they did act together in "Freaky Friday"! It's like GIbbs is going through some kind of crisis & anyone will do.....................please!! That's not the Gibbs we know & love he is a class act & unfortunately JLC is not.
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.
Gets better and better every season!! Every episode is both funny and interesting. The characters are interesting and extremely lovable. The new season brings promise and is turning out to be one of the best. Even the actors are having a great time during the filming of each episode, so it must be a sign of greatness! NCIS remains one of the top shows on television and has kept that status since season one. Not only is it extremely successful, it is also one of the most interesting on television. I personally have a great love for the show and the characters, as well as the actors and actresses. This show is simply amazing, and one of the best on TV in a long, long time.
A show about a team of criminal investigators that work for the navy, the team appear more of a dysfunctional family than anything. Which works great on the show, because who couldn't relate to some of the funny/sad/crazy/mad familial scenes that are created from it.
Great character developments! one of the best I've seen on T.V.
The team is led by Gibbs, the father/leader/boss figure in the family, then you get the kids (well they act like kids sometimes) Tony, Tim, Ziva and the favourite Abby. You also have the mad uncle or something, Ducky! (Invader Zim)Girr: "I love this show"
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.
With all of the characters and their unique characteristics and quirks, it creates an unforgettable show when they're all together as they all work to solve some spooky, some weird and some surprising naval murder mysteries.
Gibbs and his coffee, boat and outward appearance of having no heart is the head of the team. DiNozzo, the second longest team member is an Italian gorgeous movie obsessed person who never cares about others privacy, and is one of my favourite characters. McGee, also a favurite of mine, is a computer geek whose crush on Abby is so cute. Abby, the goth forensic scientist is very cool, and i love the relationship between Gibbs and her. Duckie, the old autopsy dude, never stops talking about a lot of unimportant random stuff. I love it when Ziva says stupid stuff thinking that she's saying an English saying but actually saying gibbersh-like stff. Kate was very cool but in case you haven't watched it, i don't want to say anything.
Get real people sometimes actors and actress's think their worth more than they are. And was it really a question of money? Mark Harmon only signed a 1 year contract last year and Ducky (David Mcaullum (sic) ) only signed a 2 year contract the season he had the heart attack, which will be up the same time as Mark Harmon's. Jimmy Palmer is no where to be seen except short walk ins. Along with less and less of Abby. She's in her late 20's acting like a teenager which I find disquieting. I think we might see the 12th season as the last.
NCIS seems to have lost its edge. Since Ziva's departure, the show could be described as NCIS-lite. The scripts are all over the place. The plots just barely hang together. And, although it might not be "fashionable" for characters to speak correctly. is it really necessary to have the dialog make the characters seem illiterate? If your character is poorly educated, it makes sense. But these writers write the same illiterate dialog for everyone. The most basic middle school grammar teaches that it is wrong to say "there's 3 ways to do . You don't say there IS 3 ways to do this; you say "there ARE 3 ways to do this". And Gibbs' last line in the Alibis episode -- and ME have a lot in common" is laughable: "You and I have is one of the first grammar lessons kids learn in school. Using "you and me" as the subject of a sentence is just ignorant. I realize that it isn't your job to teach young people how to speak properly but it is a sorry business when writers don't know how to write. It is no wonder they cannot write a tight plot, when they cannot write at an 8th grade level. At least the writers haven't changed the personalities of the main characters, they just aren't giving them any decent scripts/plots with which to work. As I understand it, Cote's contract was up for renewal in February. Therefore, they had plenty of time to get ready for her departure.
You really have taken NCIS down the tubes. You have Mark Harmon as being stupid while the new women walk in and take over and run the show. There is no more Ducky, Palmer, and even Abbey is not seen to much anymore. It was more realistic before and I think you better return it back to the show it used to be.
NCIS is action packed filled with exciting drama and comic characters to make the show even more enjoyable, this is not another typical cop show, this is and exciting navel and marine investigation show! Gibbs along with his fantastic team do not just investigate murders off the street, they also bring down the big bad weapons dealers and terrorists. each member of the team has their own story that comes out slowly in every episode with such manner, it makes me want to watch them forever!!! congratulations to all actors, writers, producers and everyone else for putting together such a show that will never be forgotten by those who watch either all or 1 episode!
