It’s been a while since I talked about TV, and I absolutely love this show. It’s a grower. I started watching it on Channel 5 here in the UK, and was never able to get into it properly as I had never seen the beginning. I now have the first 2 seasons on DVD, so am enjoying it even more these days. Unfortunately, if you try to watch recent episodes on TV, here at least, you end up between seasons 3 and 4 and I get confused. So I’ll be happy when they have released the next DVDs.
For those of you that don’t know NCIS stands for Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and this follows the agents under the command of Leroy Jethro Gibbs (an irascible soul if ever there was one). It even has the added bonus of David McCallum as the Medical Examiner Dr ‘Ducky’ Mallard. I particularly like the quirky character of the Forensic Specialist Abby Sciuto.
Season 1 was a solidly good season, but the end of season 2 was an absolute jaw-dropper! I won’t spoil it for you here if you haven’t seen it, but take a look at a clip here to get a flavour of the show:
