Storyline

Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs is the leader of a team of special agents belonging to the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) Major Case Response Team. Gibbs, a former Marine, is a tough investigator and a highly skilled interrogator who relies on his gut instinct as much as evidence. Gibbs' second in command is Senior Field Agent Tony DiNozzo, a womanizing, movie-quoting former Baltimore Homicide Detective, who despite being the class clown always gets the job done. The team also consists of probationary field agent Ziva David, a former Mossad officer who is a skilled fighter, as well as Junior Field Agent Timothy McGee, a computer-savvy agent often mocked by DiNozzo. Assisting them are Abby Sciuto, the energetic-but-Goth lab tech who is like a daughter to Gibbs, and Dr. Donald Mallard, nicknamed Ducky, the eccentric medical examiner full of unusual stories. This team of elite agents, based in Washington, D.C., solve criminal cases involving Marine and Navy personnel and ... Written by NCIS Lover

Abby makes the show
20 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The character Abby is great and funny... She makes the whole show as far as I am concerned. I just wish she was more of a main character and they had her onscreen more... This is the first show where a Goth type character is shown as something more than some wierdo to be avoided. I wish more shows would do the same. The rest of the cast is ok...and the show has its moments. Not quite as intense as the other CIS shows but maybe that's why I like it. While the other shows seem so serious, NCIS adds humor (especially as mentioned above with the Goth Abby) which makes it great. David McCallum is an excellant actor and helps to make the show with his "Semi-absent minded professor" style where he seems to get off on tangents while explaining things. I hope they keep this show on the air...it is one of my favorites.
