NCIS 13×13 ‘Deja Vu’: Voice-over Galore

Still in the rut that is the middle of a TV season, NCIS seems to be trying its darn-dest to focus on dark storylines and focusing on certain characters to attempt to give them depth. While their attempts are valiant, it doesn’t always work out in every episode. And unfortunately, this week’s episode falls into that category. […]


NCIS 13×12 ‘Sister City: Part 1’: Back to New Orleans

We’re now right smack in the middle of the present NCIS season, so what better time to throw in a crossover episode? It’s safe to say that the dynamic between the original NCIS team and the most recent New Orleans team is more interesting compared to what we’ve seen from the LA team. So a crossover with NCIS: […]


NCIS 13×11 ‘Spinning Wheel’: It’s a flashback Christmas

Christmas time brings Christmas themed episodes, and NCIS has certain standards to hold up to this time of year. Last year brought an emotional episode revolving around McGee, and this keeps the emotion but chooses another character to focus on: Ducky. It feels like it’s been a time since there’s been an episode centered on the […]


NCIS 13×10 ‘Blood Bothers’: Thanksgiving time

Here we are again at another themed episode. Taking whatever else has been happening in the season so far, NCIS themed episodes can either be really great or not so great. Given the situation with Bishop in the last episode, it wasn’t totally clear what direction the writers would take and what kind of Thanksgiving the […]

Day In Court

NCIS 13×09 ‘Day in Court’: “Make him talk to you.”

Another episode that strays a little from the typical formula, and a resolution to an ongoing subplot that is only a little bit satisfactory. At least there’s some improvement. While this week’s NCIS really just provides more questions than answers, it sure gives a lot to talk about, mostly in regards to a main character’s involvement in […]


NCIS 13×08 ‘Saviors’: Familiar faces

As the season moves along, it’s easy to pick out the good and the bad. Thankfully this week’s episode has more of the good, bringing back a character who has great recurring potential, and bringing back another character for the fans who’ve been around long enough to remember her story. There are still some kinks […]

"Lockdown" -- While visiting a pharmaceutical lab on a murder case, Abby is trapped with no communication to the outside world after armed men take over the building and hold everyone hostage, on NCIS, Tuesday, Oct. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

NCIS 13×07 ’16 Years’: Cold case

After a lackluster Halloween episode, it looks like the writers wanted to make up for it by making this week’s episode oddly comedic. With some guest stars, including Jessica Walters, it certainly is a strange one, and also suffers from having just a little too much in it. Sarah Lord is a college student in […]


NCIS 13×06 ‘Viral’: Just another Halloween episode

Tis the season for themed episodes, and with Halloween in just a few days all the TV shows are coming out with their specific Halloween themed episodes. NCIS is usually good at this sort of thing, but it’s a new year and a new season. Let’s see if their knack for capturing the Halloween spirit is still […]


NCIS 13×05 ‘Lockdown’: Abby has a new best friend

Apparently that whole “ask and you shall receive” thing actually works. Continuing character based episodes for its 13th season, NCIS decides to focus on beloved Abby Sciuto this week. While the focus is mainly just on the situation she’s thrown into and how she reacts to it, it’s still nice to see Abby out of the lab […]


NCIS 13×04 ‘Double Trouble’: Gibbs has a new probie

Now we’re getting into the character-piece episodes of this new NCIS season. No hint of an over-arching plot yet, but this week’s episode proves that the writers are still capable of good one-off story lines that are meant to develop one specific character. Sarah Lord is a college student in New York City. Her extreme knowledge of […]


NCIS 13×03 ‘Incognito’: Undercover couple

As the season continues, it’s hard not to wonder what the writers plan for the main story arc of the season. It’s hard to tell if one episode will truly be a one-off or if one will actually contribute to the story arc of the season. Not all one-off’s are horrible, and this week’s episode […]


NCIS 13×02 ‘Personal Day’: The past is always present

And so the season continues, with Gibbs back from Iraq and the team fully assembled just like the good old days (well, for the most part). While season premieres are always important, it’s really the next few episodes that determine if the season is going to be headed in a good direction. Despite there being […]


NCIS 13×01 ‘Stop the Bleeding’: A new season, a possibly new Gibbs

After making fans have a heart attack after the ending of last season, NCIS is back in its regular Tuesday night time slot. But with its return comes some good and some bad. Good because inevitably the team is back together, and it looks like the writers are deciding to keep some dark elements of the show […]


NCIS 12×24 ‘Neverland’: Did that really just happen?

It’s season finale time, friends. This twelfth season has been a roller-coaster ride, up and down and everything in between. Assumed to be the last episode of an intense three parter, NCIS has always been good at two, three, and four part episodes. With that being said, these continuous episodes tend be sad and have […]

NCIS 12×23 ‘The Lost Boys’: “Are you making a deal with the devil, or am I?”

It’s the second to last episode of the season and it looks like the stakes are getting high. The team is recovering from the events of last week and Gibbs of course is in full determination gear. It looks like NCIS is back on its game, going back to its darker roots from the earlier […]


NCIS 12×22 ‘Troll’: Be wary of the Internet

It’s down to the final episodes of season 12 of NCIS, and it looks like these last three episodes will all be connected. It appears that the writers are back on their game for these final episodes, as well they should be. While all shows should have good season finales, it’s clear that NCIS has a […]


NCIS 12×21 ‘Lost in Translation’: Entering the homestretch

There are only four episodes left of season 12. We’re entering the homestretch, folks. First of all, 12 seasons is pretty dang good for a TV show (Law & Order: SVU has it beat but it’s still impressive). And as being the #1 most watched television show in the America (I’m pretty sure it still […]


NCIS 12×20 ‘No Good Deed’: Family feud

It’s coming down to the final four episodes of the season (although IMDb claims that there’s a random 28th episode and that’s very strange). While it’s a little bittersweet, it’s hard not to anticipate how the season is going to end. It’s also evident that the writers are running out of ideas because this week’s […]


NCIS 12×19 ‘Patience’: Past and present

NCIS is back this week with an episode that focuses a lot on the past. With the slew of recent episodes that have been more or less filler (last week’s is a little bit of an exception with the appearance of Delilah), it’s no surprise that this one is still on the same lines. Again, […]


NCIS 12×18 ‘Status Update’: Hey there Delilah

While we’re in the midst of the last leg of season 12 of NCIS, it’s been difficult to pinpoint exactly in what direction the show is going to go in in the final episodes of the season. Despite my fervent complaints about how the overarching plot of the season was handled (I can’t promise that […]
