2017 Apr 25 ’48 Hours:NCIS’

By | April 26th, 2017|NCIS|

Tonight, CBS televised their first of six episodes of ’48 Hours: NCIS where they will feature reviews of real NCIS cases. As we watched the show we found it to be much more like a documentary with police officers and NCIS agents describing a case and telling of the outcome. In the featured murder case, [...]

CBS Announces Mini-Series on real NCIS cases.

By | April 20th, 2017|NCIS|

Often we write about how things are really done within the NCIS. That’s because television productions are mostly created from whole cloth, just for our entertainment. Here’s a chance to learn about the real thing. Beginning this Tuesday night, April 25th, CBS will begin a mini-series in which real NCIS cases are explored. Rocky Carroll, [...]

2017 Apr 18 NCIS Critique of “One Book, Two Covers”

By | April 18th, 2017|NCIS|

Undercover cases don’t make usually good episodes because in real life the undercover operations last long term and don’t fit well into the forty minutes plus commercials of the average episode. In tonight’s episode, One Book, Two Covers, writer David J. North used a flashback to weave one of Agent Torres’ undercover cases to spin [...]

2017 Mar 28 NCIS Critique of “The Wall”

By | March 28th, 2017|NCIS|

Tonight’s episode was inspired when an elderly veteran took an Honor Trip to Washington, D.C. to see the monuments. His granddaughter-in law is Gina Lucita Monreal, the writer of this episode. Gina fictionalizes a Vietnam era Marine Corps Sergeant named Henry Rogers (he says he is no relation to the sweater-wearing Mr. Rogers) and tells [...]

2017 Mar 14 Critique of NCIS episode “M.I.A”

By | March 14th, 2017|NCIS|

Thank you Jennifer Corbett for writing the script for this episode of NCIS. Just when we think the show has passed its prime, writers like you come up with a great story line. Tonight’s show brings up events and people from the past in Gibbs’ life when one of his former commanding officers asks Gibbs [...]

2017 Mar 07 – Critique of NCIS episode, ‘What Lies Above’

By | March 7th, 2017|NCIS|

Not bad. This was an entertaining show, but once again the first question is, did NCIS have jurisdiction to investigate a shooting in the apartment that Tony DiNozzo once occupied and where Tim McGee now lives with his fiancée Delilah. Some viewers might say there wasn’t jurisdiction, but what about “assault on a Federal Agent”? [...]

Russian Spy Ship Nears U.S.

  Viktor Leonov During the past few weeks, the U.S.’s forty-fifth President has been trying to form his new administration and the Russian spy ship Viktor Leonov has been patrolling just outside of the U.S.’s territorial waters near our Norfolk Naval Base. What is President Trump to make of this scenario? What are [...]

2017 Feb 21 Critique of NCIS episode ‘A Many Splendored Thing’

By | February 21st, 2017|NCIS|

We suffered through tonight’s episode of NCIS. It seemed schizophrenic. As we’ve written in the past, we keep hoping the writers and producers would move past the departure of some of NCIS’ best actors/characters and again produce real quality shows with the newly assembled cast. There have been a couple of episodes recently that encouraged [...]

2017 Feb 14 NCIS Critique of “Pandora’s Box”

By | February 14th, 2017|NCIS|

Tonight’s episode has a fatal flaw. We always said that we don’t knowingly watch a ‘to be continued’ TV program, or read a novel that is a prequel. Tonight’s episode of Pandora’s Box is really such a show. The first half aired on CBS in the eight o’clock hour with the conclusion airing at ten [...]

2017 Feb 7 NCIS Critique of “Nonstop”

By | February 7th, 2017|NCIS|

If you’ve recorded tonight’s episode of NCIS and you are wondering if it’s worth watching, the answer is yes. Unlike some episodes where it is gory and too complex for the one hour allotted, “Nonstop” is a light hearted suspense that includes Robert Wagner as Tony Di Nozzo Sr. He’s always a hit. As the [...]
