Star Trek: Voyager hit airwaves at a time when television was a very different beast, but even considering a world that didn’t demand ratings in the same way as today’s standards would suggest, there were some serious question marks as this one progressed.
The show was obviously buoyed by the general Star Trek fan base, as well as the success of Star Trek: The Next Generation (which ended just as this one was kicking off), and the relative success of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (which started two seasons before this), but it lasted through the first couple of formative seasons largely because it was the highest rated show on upstart Upn, which had this as one of its initial offerings.

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
There are two questions a viewer might ask going into the third season of Bosch. The first is what Bosch offers that other television shows about homicide detectives do not, and the second is what a third season of Bosch offers that the first two seasons did not.
The first of these answers comes easily: Bosch offers one of the most patient, intelligent, intriguing police procedural narratives on television, eschewing cliffhangers and easy answers while embracing slow pacing, character development, and escalating tension. Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) is a compelling character, a far-from-perfect father chased by his childhood demons. The directing, the acting, and the writing all hold attention and merit high ratings. Even the cinematography deserves praise. Unlike many other mystery shows – think Foyle’s War or Sherlock – Bosch does not fall apart with hokiness when it comes time for a shootout or car chase. »

Let me tell you, I was genuinely excited for NCIS Season 14 Episode 12. We don't often get to see Gibbs actually do undercover work, but it's always a treat to see Mark Harmon playing Gibbs playing someone else.
So I felt rather unfulfilled by the rushed and strangely pat conclusion to the episode. I sat there in confusion and actually wondered, "Is that it?".

I also really enjoyed Gibbs's ability to instantly call up a past persona when the need arose. It almost makes you wish you could see a prequel series centered around the undercover adventures of Leroy Jethro Gibbs!
Then there was the bit with Quinn's guilt over breaking the plate. Fortunately, Abby was there to save the day, »
