Storyline

During an organized event in a wooded area, a Boy Scout finds the decomposing body of Lt. Loren Singer in a tree. NCIS investigates, and Harm soon becomes the prime suspect. Harm appears to try to hide something. The NCIS, continuing its investigation, finds not only several surprises about Loren's death but also several pieces of circumstantial evidence pointing directly to Harm, who then finds himself in an uncomfortable position. Special Agent Jethro Gibbs also gives attention to terrorists in the Middle East. This episode and the next one introduce the NCIS characters and pave the way for the NCIS series, which debuts five months later (on 23 September 2003). Written by DocRushing

the first batch of NCIS
27 September 2006 | by (City of Gotham) – See all my reviews

if you like the show, NCIS then this is one of two episodes featuring the mainstay of characters from NCIS (Gibbs, Dinozo, ABby and Ducky.) it show show they handle their operations when working with JAG. from these two episodes, you basically get the idea and tie in very nicely with the first episode of NCIS. after all if you know your TV from days back you know how they used to do the "spinoffs". i assure you this is done with far more taste. just remember this episode is a two parter and gos with jag episode "meltdown". it is judged that about a month after meltdown, you would get season one of NCIS.(of course the producer and creator of both shows isthe same guy.--- and of course the JAGcharacter "Bud" appears in an early episode of NCIS.
