What did you think of NCIS this week? I thought it was a pretty good show to be honest, I really liked the whole play about turkey day, and *SPOILER* Gibbs showing up at the end with misc. (I can't spell Miscelanous) items. Also did Duckie say "Good Girl" about Angela stealing his card? Well I guess we all know why now. I thought it was funny that the guy underestimated Ziva. Well LA was definitely interesting. I like the whole play with Eric and Abby, but I am afraid that one of them may cross over into the other show, I want them in their respective shows. What do you think? Maybe a long distance relationship would be okay, something they draw out for awhile and maybe drop, or agree to be just friends. Or maybe they just keep going back and forth until the series ends, which I hope it's not anytime soon! Eric : You call him Vance? Abby : Yes, Don't you? Eric : Not Successfully ( I think that's how that line went)

The good news is that NCIS is filmed in L.A. anyway, so Abby can be in both as much as they want to have her there. I've noticed that they are always calling her for back up anyway - as a tie in character. On another show that David McCallum was in back in the 1960's, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., they did a spin off show that (fortunately lasted one season), The Girl From U.N.C.L.E., but the head of the organization, Alexander Waverly (Leo G. Carroll) was on both, like Vance and Abby are doing on this.

I can't think of any tie in shows that I've seen, but I am sure I've seen some. Yes, Both NCIS and NCIS:LA is filmed in LA but I like to think that atleast NCIS is filmed in Washington! lol!

The CSIs and Law and Order tend to have tie-ins

Las Vegas and Crossing Jordan also used to go back and forth with the characters. A Different World was a spin-off of The Cosby Show, and those characters used to cross over, too.

I think you'll see cross overs every so often. Remember too that the idea for the LA version of the show came out of an episode of the original NCIS. Allowing Abby's character to appear on the LA version also provides a chance for a different spin to the character, which I have to assume Pauley Perrette appreciated. I further expect that there will be a least one case that starts on one show and spreads over to the other (like they did on Law and Order and Homicide) I just hope they don't stretch it over from one season to the next (like they did last year when everyone was transferred out). One thing I liked about the tankgiving show at the end, for one of those rarer times, Gibbs smile, broadly.

The CSI Shows also did a cross over where Ray went to Miami, then New York and then back to his own stomping grounds, Vegas. I do not mind the development of a character as long as it doesn't interfere to much with the plotline of another show, or doesn't shift to LA altogether. I was irritated by the stretch of waiting until the next season, and Gibbs smile was priceless, I love to see him smile as he doesn't smile but only so often.

I haven't really gotten into the CSI's yet. I basically got into NCIS late by recording a marathon on USA. Until I checked the Internet Movie Data Base, I always wondered if there were any shows before the one where Kate was recruited off Air Force One. One thing about cross overs between shows is I wonder how can you package the reruns especially like in the case of Crossing Jordan and Vegas. How do you package that or can you ever rerun one with out the other show?

Croosover's or to be continued, most of the time unless you've seen one of the shows recently you've got to play them back to back. I think most networks will replay a show back to back, especially if it's connection to another totally different show. I think USA will play the last few episodes of last season in a row so we're not confused.

I normally don't watch NCIS: LA since I don't think it is nearly as good as NCIS and so I tape V and watch it at that time. But I watched this one because Abby was doing the crossover and without her it would have once again been just a so-so show. I watche the first few NCIS: LA, before V started, so it is not like I didn't give it a chance, but it is definitely something I would only watch if nothing else were on unless someone from NCIS is doing a crossover. I would be very upset if one of the NCIS characters moved permantly to NCIS: LA.

I'm a bit confused by what you mean. is V short for something that I'm just not getting? or do you mean G. like G callum? lol sorry if I am just ignorant!

"V" is a new TV show on ABC at the same time as NCIS and when it is on I tape it and watch it while NCIS: LA is on since I have been very dissappointed in NCIS: LA. For this particular episode of NCIS: LA, because Abby was on it, I watched it and then watched "V" instead of the news later that night. V is short for Visitors and is a science fiction show about aleins arriving on Earth. There was an earlier version of it in the 1980's, I think, but this is probablly better.

While I think NCIS is one of the more intelligent shows on currently, I can't get behind NCIS LA. Must be personal taste I guess. That said, the Thanksgiving one this week was a little too cutesy for me. I think the whole premise behind the thinktank & kids is much closer to the truth than we'd think, which is kind of scary no? As far the personal relationships go, if it adds to understanding the character, I'm all for it. ie: the eps that explore Gibbs' background/history etc. But keep in mind shows where the writers ran out of ideas with focused mainly on interpersonal crap tend to tank shortly after ie: The Unit, 3rd Watch etc.

I think that their should be a line drawn when too much info about a character is given. It doesn't leave much room at all for the imagination if you ask me. I've never seen The Unit or 3rd Watch to my knowledge, but I have heard of them. Sorry it took a few days to respond back to you, welcome to mylot!

I have watched all the CIS shows and like all of them and I like both of these NCIS and NCIS LA. I do not think Abby will be leaving NCIS she may do more espisodes on NCIS LA but she is one of the main characters in NCIS.

I think NCIS and NCIS: LA are two of my favorite shows. I really enjoy Abby and her chemistry with all characters, she's like an oxymoron herself!

I really liked both shows. I just recently started watching NCIS, although my family has been bugging me to watch it for years, because they thought it was something that I would like. I tried watching it once and couldn't get into it, but it might have either been a show that built on a past episode or my mood or something. I gave up on it partway through the episode and never went back to it until L.L. and Chris O'Donnell appeared on it. Now, I watch both the original and the spin-off. I have even gone back and watched older episodes of NCIS, and I am not sure now why I didn't like it in the first place.

There's been shows like that for me. Whether it was either my mood or the particular show that turned me off of it altogether. Then later I go back and wonder why I didn't like it, and hated what I had missed. It's fun to watch reruns though, especially ones you haven't seen or haven't seen in so long. The one fortunate thing about NCIS is that its' always on either USA or I think even Bravo or Sleuth sometimes!

I really liked both shows. With NCIS I was really getting worried thinking the little girl done everything ....oh my. But I am glad that it turned out her mother wasn't involved with everything either. NCIS-LA I really don't think they would transfer Abby over, she is the one that makes NCIS and the show knows it. If they do that then many would not want to watch NCIS. I haven't heard anywhere that they are going to throw in the towel, I feel they all like to work together, have fun, and know its a major hit.

I did feel that NCIS had more of a twist then ever before, very very different. I don't think they'll transfer her either, I just hope they never do either way. It is a great hit, and like others have said it's filmed in the same city so it's not like even if she wanted to be on both they couldn't pull it off somehow...

Yeah it was a good episode and I love how Gibbs exactly showed up at the end which you kind of knew he would have too,and yeah it was cool watching Eric and Abby and they would so make a cute couple,but they should stay on respective shows to keep from stepping on anyones toes,and I think it would definitely keep people watching if they dated even for a while,because it would tie the two together,and then after a while they could move on and find someone new,like Abby and Mcgee could hook up which would be nice as well,and I do not hope either series ends,and that was a funny line,and that was exactly how it went,I love you with all of my heart and soul.
