I figured it was about time this show get a thread. It's easily one of my favorite shows on TV today, and it's property of our friends at CBS. ;)

... because they didn't have enough acronyms on the air as it was. :rolleyes: Seriously, I love this show, and I voted for Abby, though it was really hard to choose. OT: I've always thought Mark Harmon would make a great Starfleet captain. :P

I voted for McGee but as JoannaPoe said, it was hard to choose.

Warning: Negative post. (Feel free to skip!)



I went through an interesting curve with this show: First, being overwhelmed with all the movement and talking and fast scene progression; then being delighted by those elements and becoming a big fan of the show whose main strength is/was the various chemistries between the characters; then they pulled one of the worst main character deaths/season finales/jump-the-shark moments in TV history in response to Sasha Alexander's departure (including the "ghost" appearences -- *gag*), but they put Lauren Holly in the show and it was good for a while....

Now, surprisingly, I find the show somewhat slow and very formulaic. All that neat direction, action and banter seem so trite these days. Ex: Every show seems to start with Tony doing something stupid, then Ziva and/or McGee become involved/distracted by it just in time for Gibbs to show up at the most embarrasing moment... Ex2: "Did I ever tell you about the time...." trivialities from Dr. Mallard while Always Annoyed Gibbs stands around him impatiently... Ex3: Abby and/or McGee trying to explain something moderately technical to Always Annoyed Gibbs, getting cut-off, forced to jump to the end....

NCIS is probably still a thrill for the uninitiated, but the ride is short-lived, IMO.
Computer? Yep. Internet? Of course. >>> So put them to good use!

Had to vote for the Man from Uncle - Duckey. But I tend to agree with Dosman - the formula is wearing thin - don't like the girl that replaced Kate. The last show I made the effort to watch was the one where His Royal Cuteness Mr Connor Trinneer made a guest appearance - lovely!!!!

Well, the show is no more formulaic than JAG was, and let's face it the show is basically one part JAG, two parts CSI with a dash of 70's zany sitcom thrown in for flavour.
I didn't vote for Mark Harmon because it annoys me that the older he has gotten the better looking he has become (and no, I am Hetro). I chose DiNozzo because his seems to be the most complex character ... someone who tries to do good but hides beneath a snide and smarmy personae.

I'm going to have to give this some thought. I don't know if I should vote for Gibbs, Tony :wub:, or Ziva. I love them all but for different reasons.

Mark Harmon was one of People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive several years ago. I've been a fan of his since his St. Elsewhere days, but in the poll, I actually voted for the Man from UNCLE.

I have never watched this show. Someone please reassure me that it is not a cheap rip off of CSI so I can feel not ashamed if I ever catch it on the television.

I think it's a far sight better than CSI ;) The characters and plot lines are much more believable and realistic.

Okay, I now feel reassured. It just seems like everything is a cheap rip off of everything, you know? Like, Project Runway and America's next top model, or MTV and VH1, and Tom Paris is a rip off of a human being. That's right, I just shafted Tom Paris.

I agree with Russell, it's far better (not to say that CSI isn't entertaining). I highly reccomend you catch it next Tuesday (or on CBS's Innertube).

NCIS has better characters, logic, actors, and action. I don't watch it regularly but I consider it an actual option.

I voted for Tony. His character sometimes annoys me and I wish they would make him a little bit more "normal". But I like Michael Weatherly and I think he's a great actor. Just look at his role in Dark Angel and this one. It's hard to believe that "Eyes Only" and Tony DiNozzo are portrayed by the same actor.

By the way I have to agree with what Dosman said. It's still one of my favorite shows but the interaction between the characters isn't as good as in the first season.

Oh, they are soo different characters. :) He does very fine work.

And I could see where one could say they've fallen into a rut. I don't watch it often enough to be bothered by it.

NCIS is great. And I voted for Ducky, btw...

It's like CSI, only it has great storylines, believable and really, really likeable characters, and good directing. Yeah. So I guess you could say it's like CSI, except it's actually *good*.
One day, you will realize with dismay, that with just one, tiny, almost insignificant exception, the world is made up of 'others'.
