Bet you didn't know Mark Harmon was the starting quarterback for the UCLA Bruins during the '73-'74 season and got his foot in the door as an actor doing Coors beer commercials in the '80s. It would appear however that Detective Jethro Gibbs from NCIS prefers caffeinated beverages with the fact he's nearly always having a coffee. Seems like he's fond of redheads too as he's been married to four of them. As well, he was previously romantically involved... Read more
NCIS is not just another procedural or ordinary show. It’s not filled with interchangeable, poorly written and often stereotypical characters that you never get to connect with or care about. The writing team never fails to deliver and the show focuses as much on the relationships between their characters as it does the crimes and solving them. Although a lot of plots do seem to revolve around terrorism, they do not feel the need to shock viewers the way other shows do with increasingly bizarre and outrageous stories. They do not seem artificial nor do they resort to ripped from the headlines stories either. A character like Leroy Jethro Gibbs, the stony-faced, dictatorial team leader with a heart of gold, a funny name and a tragic past, could easily become a tired cliché.
When the show first started out it was a little shaky but since then it has grown into its own. The characters are unbelievable, sometimes even annoying and enchanting but the plots are amazing. It isn't forced or faked one. It is entirely true to life and believable. The underlying sexual tension between several of the characters is also fascinating and interesting to watch the most obvious of these being the relationship between Tony and Kate. It's a crime drama that's both serious and light-hearted and a superb show for anyone who likes fascinating stories, good humor and great character interaction.
This crime show is wonderful! Abby is so very cool, love her n even love the way Gibbs loves her. Want to see Ziva more witty side of Ziva as she did in the beginning. I think Gibbs is to be a suave. Love geeky McGee too. NCIS just puts you in the action and I really enjoy the show and I cannot wait for the next season after Gibbs gives Tony his emblem and leaves for Mexico after the Coma. But I wonder how Tony lead the team even though Gibbs has left and Tony well, likes to have a little fun but I guess that won't hurt much, after all Zeva would probably put him in his place.
This show enthralls me with its wonderful and witty cast, so well-rounded and very well executed. Mark Harmon has come a long ways since his seashore movie days and "Ducky" David McCallum from his Man from Uncle. I personally like Abby a lot and believe that he is the one who is responsible to make the show a huge success. I miss Kate but Zeva has given her share of sarcastic wit to her role. I have now realized that above all other shows of its kind, this is by far the best and embark a little deeper into its characters which we as the audience, appreciate and love to watch! Keep those episodes coming!
