Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

Where's the N in NCIS LA
29 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

Where's the Navy part of NCIS Los Angeles? Why didn't they set the series in San Diego where there's still a Navy presence on the west coast? I truly think that the original NCIS is one of the best series' on TV, and I have been following it from the beginning well before the rest if the public 'discovered' it. While Chris O'Donnel and LL Cool J are competent actors and Linda Hunt is always worth watching, the show has no team concept. A nice addition is Peter Cambor as a profiler. I just don't really see the kind of cases involving Navy or Marine issues, maybe because there really isn't a Naval base near Los Angeles and setting it there to attract an audience is silly since the original series is set on the east coast, though filmed in Santa Clarita, and is doing alright. I'll keep watching and hope for the best, but I hope O'Donnel's character is less out of control and more steady as an agent should be, I mean he's not a teenager, though he acts like one.

October 5th. Well episode two has come and gone, still no chemistry. They are more like secret agents, and not too far removed from "Get Smart", all they need is a shoe phone and the cone of silence. The only Navy link in this one was the fact that the bad guys were SEALS, could have been any bad guys except this is supposed to be a show about the Navy and Marines otherwise they could have substituted (pick one) Mexican Mafia, Russian Mob, drug dealers, maybe Canadian Terrorists, that would be fun. They never wear NCIS ID's or in any way identify themselves while on a case, I guess they are always 'undercover'. Can't they simply investigate. They don't drive anything but convertible sports cars 'cause everybody knows that's the only kind of cars we drive here in California. The show is trying to be hip, way too much so, and their "Bat-cave" headquarters is too funny. How do people who need to, ever find it?

October 8th. At least this week's episode had a Marine, but he got killed right away when an Air Force dude was flying a Predator. Didn't take them long to play the Arab terrorist card did it? At least it was fairly interesting when dealing with the Predator, same kind they use in Afganistan. As for the two leads, a bald-headed black man and a buzz-cut white guy, both wearing ratty T-shirts, breaking down doors without identifying themselves or carrying any ID, well that's a good way to get shot by any local police, mistaking them for druggies with guns, or even by an innocent resident. Just...plain...stupid. And what's with Linda Hunt's character, doesn't do anything and is just a 'bean counter'. Since when is a Federal agency concerned about a ripped pair of pants or a ruined shirt? Beyond belief.

October 14 Well finally signs of life, some humorous banter while on stake-out, some actual investigation of the contractor(read Blackwater). Best episode so far. Linda Hunt is still completely wasted as Hetty and she even threw out a Yoda-ism at the end. Why does NCIS-LA need a bean-counting mother figure anyway? Her character is totally unnecessary. We've all discussed the ratty T-shirt wardrobe and the lack of Identification, but I was not squirming while watching it for a change. A tentative thumbs up for this episode. Maybe there's hope.
