Trivia

When Dominic Vail (Adam Jamal Craig) was written out of the show, a main cast position was offered to Brian Avers (Special Agent Mike Renko), who also appeared in the backdoor pilot on NCIS (2003). Avers turned down the contract but remained a recurring role. As a result, the popular character of Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) was created. 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 »

Linda Hunt is the main reason I tune in
16 February 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As opposed to other reviewers who are sadly so limited they can only conceive of Linda Hunt as an object of derision, I tune in specifically to see her. The show is adequate. I've always liked LL Cool J and it's nice to see Chris O'Donnell again. (The nerds suck, especially when you consider Abby from the original show.) But it's the presence of Linda Hunt that elevates this show. She's a rich, interesting actor and her character here has a great backstory.

Sure this team could be managed by yet another grizzled actor playing a tough as nails former Navy Seal type, whose life has been touched by tragedy because his wife died of breast cancer or his little girl choked on a marble. I'd rather have Linda Hunt because she is a true original. I've seen enough shallow cookie cutter actors with impossibly white teeth and ripped abs. Now I want to watch stories about people who are unique and unusual and earthy and human.
