I don't normally watch this show regularly, but it's not
a bad show. Watching the episodes on the DVD, it drew me in
and made me care about the characters. I guess the reason I
don't normally watch it is I tried to compare it to the
original NCIS, and they're very different shows. The
characters in NCIS are lighter and more fun, and most of
their cases have to do with a murder, often someone that has
very little connection to the military. It's set in
Washington, so there's a lot more political intrigue. NCIS:
LA has a lot more to do with fighting terrorists. In fact,
in some ways it reminds me more of "24" than it does NCIS.
I have to admit that when I first watched the show, I
thought the characters were kind of boring because they were
not as colorful as the ones on NCIS that I love so much.
However, they do grow on you and they all have their own
charms. I love the relationships between them, especially
Deeks and Kenzi. There's no question that NCIS: LA is a more
conservative show than NCIS, but I did like the episode
where they showed how easy it was for Deeks to use torture
when it suited his purposes, even though he said he
wouldn't, and then he backed down once he realized that he'd
gone too far. That's not something they would do on 24. It
showed the humanity of the people a bit more.
The DVD has some good features, including many
behind-the-scenes shorts about the show, and how they make
it, how they celebrated their 100th episode, how they make
the Aghanistan episodes, the writers etc. I enjoyed it a
