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
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.
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.
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!
A thrilling adventure with drama, action, comedy, and just really interesting! Michael Weatherly plays as Tony DiNozzo In NCIS as a rich, movie loveing, NCIS agent. Cote De Pablo plays the charcter known as Ziva David, a former mussad agent now working for NCIS as an agent after a suspenceful season. Mark Harmon, plays Agent Jethro Gibbs(the boss whom headslaps everyone) after being a Heismen trophy winner awhile back. Sean Murray, plays the part of Agent Mcgee(a goofy yet reliable NCIS agent and also a great techknoweldgy geek.). David McCallum, the corner of this Naval Criminal Investagative Service an old, yet scarcistic fellow with more energy than most his age, he first appeared in a old show. This crew is the leader of casts and shows. This mixture is the base of what makes a great show. I reccomend this show to anyone who loves comedy, action, adventure, and investigating shows!
NCIS is the coolest show ever. I can not wait for season 7 to start. The feeling is like waiting for Christmas to get here. I do want to know what is the relavation about in the season 6 finale into season 7 premiere. I think that the relavation is that it was Ziva's choice to leave the team. It would make sense in theory. I hope that Tony does rescue her and apologize or try to make it up to her. I hope that the romance between McGee and Abby evole in someways. I defintly want to see the season premiere tonight to see what really happends.:)
I have to say I've not loved a show more than NCIS. It's the greatest. I can watch marathon after marathon and watch every single episode without getting tired of it. I can't wait to watch the episode tonight. It's going to be sad with Ziva gone. She was my favorite female char and my second favorite overall. I'm a McGee fan! :D
They're on the Early Show this morning so I'm hoping to see what they reveal about the episode tonight. They probably won't reveal anything but still I'd like to watch just to see if they do. So far they've just showed Mark Harmon and Rocky Carroll.
Finally, we are getting out of Gibb's bedroom! I love him but he is getting too old to have the focus be on his 'chick magnet' ability. Jamie Lee was a bad decision. This kind of writing will bring the show to it's knees if they keep this up.
Rocky was excellent in 'The Good Son'. Superb performance from him and his 'TV family'. Let's see some more core values here without the 'fluff'.
The casting of Jamie Lee Curtis for this show is a disaster! I have watched this series since its beginning, and this is definitely the worst casting I have seen. There is no chemistry between Gibbs and the role Curtis plays. As hard as the regular cast members try, Curtis just doesn't fit. It has very difficult getting used to Leon Vance, but Curtis will ruin this series. I hope they do not write her into next season's shows. I would rather see them end the series.
OK, NCIS is a great show with guns, crime, drama, and the greatest team you've ever seen. They catch bad guys, put them in jail, and catch more bad guys, and occasionally they have to shoot people, but not all that often... hopefully. Anyway their boss is a guy named Gibbs, the greatest NCIS agent of all! And then there's Tony, he likes long walks on the beach and women. OK he only likes long walks on the beach if he's with a woman. Then there's Ziva. She's from Isreal and is one tough chic. Of course we can't forget good ol' Probie, oh sorry, McGee. He's the geek I guess you could say. Well I could continue with the rest of the cast, but I let you watch the show. Enjoy.
