Pretty much everyone in this show is amazing
This may be a little off topic but if you could amalgamate all these super-cool crimefighting programmes (not that we'd really want to, more = goooooood!) and just have one team - make it TWO if ya want (day shift, night shift) - who would be your ideal combination of characters? Mine changes on a weekly basis
Leroy Jethro Gibbs (obviously )
Tony DiNozzo (couldn't separate the two)
David Hodges (He's amazing sorry Abby )
Mac Taylor (he'd be my kick-ass cop )
Gibbs, Tony, Ziva, Ducky and Abby.
I'd take Mac and Flack from CSI:NY, as well as Det. Angell (the female detective who appears every so often, played by Emmanuelle Vaugier. She should have a bigger part).
Take Nick and Catherine from CSI, and Calleigh from Miami.
That would be hell of a show.
Compared withthe CSI teams, NCIS may not be quite as good at solving the crimes but they definitely have the best chemistry as a team (like the pairings in Law and Order) and are the most fun to watch.
NCIS solve crimes very efficiently. NCIS is the law enforcement agency of the US Navy and Marine Corps, like the US Army CID and our own Red Caps etc. This means that they're not going to deal with "standard" things that the CSI franchise deal with. Instead they're focused on protecting the Navy and it's personnel whilst solving crimes involving Naval and Marine personnel. I think everyone can agree that the character chemistry is brilliant on the show far better than the CSI's where there seems to be a lot of ego involved.
Yes but NCIS and CSI are completely different things.
NCIS is much more heavily affected by politics - there are a lot of power struggles between NCIS and the FBI because a good deal of the incidents investigated have links to sensitive areas like terrorism.
CSI is not - well apart from Miami, but Horatio is more a vigilante than a CSI.
You are right, the NCIS team does have by far the best chemistry.
I always think Law & Order tends to stay away from the personal lives of its characters, so chemistry is very limited there.
[QUOTE]Any least favourite NCIS characters? To me, Director Shepard doesn't seem tough enough compared to everyone else![QUOTE]
Thing with the director is that she has to play the politics game which she is extremely good at. Other directors and politicians seem to underestimate her which plays to her advantage plus she is quite shrewd when it comes to politics which also helps. In one season 3 episode Gibbs way with politics and politicians was explained by the director, in that he shoots them.
My least favourite character would have to be Agent Lee because she has no character herself.
Well going by the shows I watch roughly a team of six main people per show (includes all agents, officers, forensics etc), so 12 if you do day shift and night shift.
This may be a little off topic but if you could amalgamate all these super-cool crimefighting programmes (not that we'd really want to, more = goooooood!) and just have one team - make it TWO if ya want (day shift, night shift) - who would be your ideal combination of characters
My team would be:
-Jethro Gibbs (NCIS)
-Mac Taylor (CSI:NY)
-Seeley Booth (Bones)
-Ziva David (NCIS)
-Tony DiNozzo (NCIS)
-Don Flack (CSI:NY)
-Calleigh Duquesne (CSI:Miami)
-Abby Scuito (NCIS)
-Donald Mallard (NCIS)
-Sid Hammerback (CSI:NY)
-Sheldon Hawkes (CSI:NY)
-Jack Hodgins (Bones)
Haven't decided which would go into which team.
I think there is something weird about Tony's girlfriend
Like she is a spy or something
I mean who was taking the photographs of them in her flat?
Was it her ex?
She's got me all confused
WARNING THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS
Read only if you wnat answers to the previous post.
I've watched most of season 4 on FX (sky channel 165) which is ahead of FIve in terms of episodes.
Jeanne's ex was a DC police detective who is shot and killed in "Friends and Lovers" episode 85. He and Tony bond because they ahve similar interests however neither know that the other is/was (for the detective) with Jeanne.
As for Jeanne herself, she is the daughter of "La Grenouille" an arms dealer who Director Shepard is hunting. She heads the operation which sees Tony undercover (throughout the series) as a Professor dating Jeanne in order to get closer/gain intel on "La Grenouille".
As for the photographs the writers haven't given us answers but have given possible "suspects". I think it is likely to be one of "La Grenouille" men, who is actually a CIA operative. The CIA has setup an operation for the same reason as Director Shepards operation.
In the final episode of season 2 and at the start of season 3, Ari killed Kate, took a shot at McGee, Abbey, kidnapped Ducky and Gerald and tried to kill Gibbs (multiple times), why didn't he target Tony?
Thats a fair point I never thought of that before.
Tony would probably have been next on his hit list had things not worked out for him (luring gibbs to him)
Maybe Ziva kept beside Tony too much for Ari to take the risk of harming his sister as well. Who knows.
I'm keeping up with the American schedule for the show which is currently airing over there just now (just finished ep 14)
Here is a website if you want to catch up till season 5:
If you want to watch season 5 then check out www.alluc.org
Hope this helps you NCIS fans!
Current favourite moment;
Ziva: "The lawyer was drooling all over Tony...why doesn't he just sleep with her?....What?!? Its a viable interrogation technique!"
Gibbs: "I've done it"
Ziva: "me too"
Followed by McGee's look of shock and disgust haha!
My mum and I are obssessed with this show! My favorite characters have to be Ducky and Abby, I think they could do a show with just them: The Ducky and Abby Show
Yes, ok I'm sad, but I love the humour and think the entire dynamic structure of the show is completely different to CSI. I quite like the way the plots unfold and the way the team interact with each other.
My mum loves watching Ducky (a.k.a David McCallum) because he was a 60s heart throb when she was a little girl, and I have to say (after having done some research in to what she was waffling on about) that she has good taste!
Can't wait to see the rest of the new season .
Adding in those bits about scotland really adds to the show's dynamic and feel. Everyone on the team seems natural in their roles making the show incredibly realistic.
I love the fact that Ducky adds his bits about Scotland and also some of the really interesting, if irrelevant little tid bits about his character. I can't quite remember which episode it was but he mentions going hunting with falcons 'in his youth'. I think little things like this give the characters so much more depth.
I'm not sure about the spoilery question, although I know about the main speculations. I'm not sure how to put the spoiler tab in so if you'd like to hear more about *speculation* feel free to let me know
lol! Took me a while to work out the spoilery thing too (I was feart of suffering the wrath of the peeps )
[SPOILER] super cool stuff here [ /SPOILER] without the gap before the /
There's now talk of it being Ziva... but it's too obvious, I'm thinking that someone may go to save her... But it's all speculation although it's sounding more and more like a field agent rather than a lab rat *hyperventilates*
Yeah I reckon it's either Ziva or one of Jeanne's father's men.
Yes, there are lots of rumours that Jeanne may come back. Ooohh this is driving me mad! I want to know lol.
We need a count down to this episode or something .
P.s whoohoo! It works, thanks Yuna47
What's your favourite episode from any series so far?
Mine are Bete Noir (1x16), Lt. Jane Doe (2x04), Meat Puzzle (2x13), SWAK (2x21) and Bloodbath (3x24)....Those are just my favorites from the early seasons
If I had to pick just one I'd say Meat Puzzle
Tough. Top 5 (from first 3 series) would be:
-Yankee White (1.1)
-The Bone Yard (2.5)
-Kill Ari (3.1+2)
Out of the five (6 if include both parts of 'Kill Ari') I'd have to say my favourite would be 'Kill Ari' both parts.
