What I’m Watching: NCIS

16 May

NCIS. Tuesdays at 8 pm on CBS.


NCIS follows a team of Navy Criminal Investigative Service agents as they inspect crime scenes and solve murder cases.

Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) may seem rough around the edges, but has a caring heart and a bit of a messiah complex that means he will do almost anything to help someone in need.

Gibbs leads a team of three other NCIS agents. Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) is a computer whiz and lovably dorky. Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) spouts trivia from classic films and is full of cocky self-confidence. Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) is a former Mossad agent from Israel with excellent spy skills, but a general lack of understanding when it comes to American culture.

Tony and Ziva bicker constantly, but their chemistry is one of my favorite things about this show.

Also in NCIS headquarters are Ducky (David McCallum), the primly-accented medical examiner with a funny habit of talking to corpses while he examines them, and Abby (Pauley Perrette), the kind-hearted  but overly-caffinated forensic specialist who has spider web tatoos and dresses with a gothic flair that makes it look like she just walked out of Hot Topic.

Why I watch:

For the good memories. NCIS is a show my entire family watches together. We sit around on the couch after dinner, watching it while we eat ice cream and listen to my 15 year old sister insists that Gibbs could beat Chuck Norris in a fist fight any day.

The entire ensemnle of charaters is just extremely likable. I adore Abby and her quirky personality. I’ve been waiting 5 seasons for Ziva and Tony to finally realize they should be together. It hasn’t happened yeat.

The world just would not be right without NCIS. It just wouldn’t. The thought of no Gibbs with his cup of coffee, no Abby with her industrial sized Caf-Pow!, no Gibbs smacking DiNozzo on the side of the head … it just wouldn’t be right.
