Trivia

LL Cool J tries to perform his own stunts, where possible. He explained: "I want people to know that I'm invested in the character and I want to give them the real experience". See more »

Goofs

When ever a handgun is fired the muzzle remains level and steady. Even in the hands of the most experienced shooter there is recoil and slight muzzle rise, or "bounce", especially when firing multiple shots in quick sensation. This never happens to the agents. See more »

A Good Successor to the NCIS name
21 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the crossover (call it the NCIS:LA premiere) last season between the two NCIS casts and really enjoyed it. Chris O'Donnell has grown up and yet, there is still that juvenile offender on the loose quality to him. Teaming him up with LL Cool J was a stroke of genius. They play off of each other so well. Pulling in Oscar winner Linda Hunt to play Hetty was a masterstroke. This show is well cast and the writing is solid. I have to disagree with other reviewers about Adam Jamal Craig and Daniela Ruah. I think they put in very solid performances as supporting team members. And Barrett Foa is perfect as the somewhat geeky technical assistance. All in all, a fun show to watch. I look forward to it marking as many seasons as it's forerunner, NCIS.
