Time to share another little tidbit about myself!
There are not many TV shows I like a lot but NCIS tops my short list. My sweet hubby doesn’t appreciate it as much as I do but he often joins me in watching it, bless his heart.
I guess what I enjoy the most about this show is the way the cast works so well together to make us believe they are actually the characters whose parts they are playing. In case you haven’t ever seen the show, NCIS stands for Naval Criminal Investigative Service. The series started as Navy NCIS but the name was shortened to NCIS in the third season, which makes perfect sense because having “Navy” in the title actually made it redundant: Navy Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Huh? Great move on the name change, CBS!
The outstanding cast:
Mark Harmon as Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Special Agent in Charge, and head of the team)
Michael Weatherly as Anthony DiNozzo (Senior Special Agent)
Sean Murray as Timothy McGee (Special Agent)
Cote de Pablo as Ziva David (Special Agent)
David McCallum as Donald “Ducky” Mallard (Chief Medical Examiner)
Brian Dietzen as Jimmy Palmer (Medical Examiner’s Assistant)
Pauley Perrette as Abby Sciuto (Forensic Specialist)
Rocky Carroll as Leon Vance (Agency Director)
I appreciate all the cast members but my favorites are Mark Harmon as forever Marine Leroy Gethro Gibbs (you really don’t want to be on the other end of a Gibbs head slap!) and Pauley Perrette as the tough/sweet forensic specialist who loves her team to pieces and does everything she can to decipher the sometimes impossible evidence.
NCIS just finished its tenth season, and the season finale’s “Damned If You Do” episode is probably my favorite one. Click on the link below to watch the entire episode.
I can’t wait to see what season 11 holds!
So, how about you? Do any of you watch NCIS? If so, which are your favorite characters?
