'Fame'-ous Episode.
24 September 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode aired a day after my birthday and when I first watched it, It seemed like it was truly a birthday episode. I will now claim that it is the best episode of the season in my opinion maintaining all elements that would attract a fifteen-year-old like me.

The episode starts with interesting opening where a couple is making out in the parking lot over the illuminating Los Angeles nightlife. They are interrupted by what sounds like the screech of car tires become loader and loader as a car comes to view, The almost-dead Navy Sailor hits the back of their car to the car plunging to his death. The screams from the couple of 'no' seemed fake though.

The team atmosphere is wonderful as they all start chatting about the most random things. The introduction of Detective Deeks becoming a Liaison with NCIS is shown and the team still adjusting to him. The episode is filled with many jokes, wonderful undercover work, etc.

The interesting and intriguing connection though between it all is how a man from the Navy is found in a celebrity's car - dead. We soon begin to realize there is more to the story then to what meets the eye.

I MUST compliment Daniela Ruah on her wonderful performance as Special Agent Kensi Blye. She did an excellent job with her undercover work and showed the audience that she is able to get into many different persona's that are the complete opposite to her original character.

And finally, Kensi and Audrey connection and friendship was one my favorite elements of the episode... How they seemed so laid-back and like total best friends. The city theme was also quite wonderful addition to the episode to make it complete.

I would advise and encourage everyone watches this episode if they are a young adult or a huge fan of celebrities' glitz and glam.
