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 »

The MOD Squad
6 October 2009 | by lesatherSee all my reviews

I have to agree with people who question what this show has to do with the "Navy" part of NCIS (for that matter, what does this show have to do with the "Investigation" part). There has been a lot of running around, car chases, explosion and shoot outs in the first few episodes, but very little good writing or interesting characters. Instead of promising an "NCIS" spin-off, they should have called it a modern version of "The MOD Squad" because that is what comes to my mind.

I think the biggest tell is that Donald Bellisario's name is nowhere to be found on this show (his son David is the Producer). I've always enjoyed the programs created and written by Donald Bellisario and if this is an example of David's future, he lacks his father's gift.
