Actually the two information analysts add to Hetty's character in a remarkable way. Each season has a good back story. The team is formed by: Leroy Jethro Gibbs the second B stays for Bastard Mark Harmon , the moody, intuitive head investigator; he likes his coffee very strong, his women with red hair, and his investigations thorough. It is unbelievably entertaining and fun to watch. Harmon's so sexy in this role and McCallum is always a joy to watch as Ducky especially when he's on the role over various anthropology lectures which to my amusement everyone on that shows roll up their eyeballs. For the bulk of the pilot it was Callen and Hanna doing the bulk of the muscle for their investigation.
You as a viewer aren't always sure where the story will take you as far as the personal stories are concerned. There is still that dynamic of banter. She makes the whole show as far as I am concerned. She is definitely unlike Gibbs in many ways. I think the producers have a hit here. I don't know why Hollywood gets it so wrong, so often, but I suspect it has something to do with the herd instinct--when one person wanders down a certain path, everyone else follows along, just to be sure they aren't missing something they previously overlooked! Gibbs and his gang are first and foremost investigators, not hoity-toity staff officers who moonlight as stereotyped combat soldiers with thickly-laid-on patriotic dogma that would make Ward Carroll vomit with rage.
I've seen enough shallow cookie cutter actors with impossibly white teeth and ripped abs. The nerds suck, especially when you consider Abby from the original show. Nothing on this show will grab you--it just doesn't have any pull. There's a depth and a comradeship that isn't often showed this well in television. Even my father-in-law likes this and we normally have totally different viewing preferences! This is merely beefcake without any redeeming characteristics. He likes the music Abby plays, but not distorted by speakers, lives with his mother, who, wearing only Chanel N°5 when she goes to bed, hosts very awkward slumber parties and has various dogs, he is the one who has worked the longest with Gibbs and looked like 'Ilya Kuryakin' when he was younger.
Deeks' personality is such that he's a great foil for the distrustful Kensi, he can wear her down and teach her intimacy. The other characters are strong and well played, also essential but they are a team because Hetty centers them. We also get a few characters making cameos for the show like Director Vance. The stories are good enough to keep me watching and the character interplay can be quite amusing at times. Mark Harmon stars as Jethro Gibbs, the leader of a team of an anti terrorist unit of the Naval Criminal Investigative Services. They play off of each other so well. As opposed to other reviewers who are sadly so limited they can only conceive of Linda Hunt as an object of derision, I tune in specifically to see her.
His stories are hysterical, then his sad commentary on the life or death of their latest subject-just gives you pause. They're in good hands and hopefully, they'll get even better. Tim McGee Sean Murray , who joined the team in the second season after making various guest-appearances throughout the first season. Anyone sent to take her place is seen as our enemy and we long to see them eliminated. There's not a single character I'd change — none that irritate — they're all excellent. Story-wise the show seems to have a couple of stories to pursue. After the first few episodes, I felt bored and wondering if I should keep watching.
SigInt doesn't work, and we need humans in there gathering info HumInt. At first, Kensi Blye was just the token female for me. I hope the show stays on a long time- Tuesday nights wouldn't be the same with out it. After watching this show twice and trying to watch it twice more I find I can not understand how a show so stupid can be allowed on T. I'm sure the caterers are tops! I think Pauley Perette was the ideal actress to cast. I hope they bring Hetty back full time - she has everyone's back and they have hers.
Abby Sciuto Pauley Perrette a perky Goth not as oxymorous as it sounds who has an imprecise number of tattoos on her body and is the greatest at her job. The writing seems to continue at an even keel. Daniela Ruah does Kensi justice in all the right places. It looks like they work in some sort of dressing room or boutique which caters to wannabees from Universal or somewhere. Not as good as the original ncis pilot but they seemed to have pulled it off imo. The main chief, Hetty, is an old woman who seems to treat her agents like their kids.
We've now watched most of the previous episodes and are deeply attached to the screwball comedy aspect and ambiguous sexual tension between the character that give the show its special flavor. They also have personalities and eccentricities that make them a better ridealong than overstarched Harmless Rabbit and whatever babe he happens to be working with this season, such as Gibbs' coffee addiction, Ducky's intellectual ramblings, DiNozzo's attempts at being a cool womanizer, Abby's interesting blend of science nerd and goth grrrl, and Kate as the token vaguely normal neophyte thrown into the mix. Why a clandestine type building that is an embarrassment to a government agency, a head of department that is out of a book of fiction, a buff agent who I think was hired just to show off his body.
