Trivia

The location of the NCIS LA Headquarters building where they zoom in and out is at the location of the Marina Del Rey Garden Center, 13198 Mindanao Way. Coordinates 33° 59' 00.0" N, 118° 26' 15.0" W. The location of the NCIS Boathouse is at the location of the Loyola Marymount University's Jane Browne Bove Boathouse at 13669 Fiji Way. Coordinates 33° 58' 29.5" N, 118° 26' 47.0 W. The actual appearance of those locations has been digitally altered for the show, but these are the locations. The boathouse is about a mile from headquarters which explains how they get back and forth so quick. 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 »

still ncis but different and still just as exciting
11 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was skeptical when this new show appeared carrying the NCIS name, I thought OK, csi done it,so why not this show? So I watched the first episode and was happy it didn't bore me to sleep. Not as good as the original ncis pilot but they seemed to have pulled it off imo.

Likable characters, plus at least two characters from ncis keep popping up and that mixes things up a little, so it seems more like the ncis we all love. True it has no gibbs, tony or elf lord, but the characters are growing on me, and Linda Hunt who plays the boss is a good actress and quite amusing in her role. I was expecting LL Cool J to be pretty bad but his character seems pretty cool and Chris O'Donnell reminds me of Scott Foley who played Bob Brown in The Unit, great character.

I give this show 7 out 10 because too me it's just as good as NCIS, the comedy between characters could be improved a little though.
