NCIS: Los Angeles was disappointing
September 23, 2009 5:56pm CST
NCIS: Los Angeles did not live up to expectations. First the woman who was in charge of the unit was gone. Also, the plot was just routine. As soon as they went to the dead guys appartment, it was obvious the neice was who was kidnapped and that was why he was being a traitor but it took them half the show to figure it out. Also, as soon as the father of the neice was even mentioned much less made the phone call it was easy to figure that he was involved also. Then there was the little error of the neice being out by the pool at the end and not even hearing the gun shot. The best part of the show was the part played by Linda Hunt.

NCIS now becoming a franchise?? I hadn't heard until just this past hour (through a blurb on CBS) that NCIS is now going to have a NCIS: Los Angeles. So now they will have a franchise in every port city no doubt. Patterning after Law and Order and CSI. I shouldn't be surprised, those spinoffs are always successful shows. I wonder if this NCIS will be as good as the original.

Hello again; I watched this also, I enjoyed the show but I guess like you and others too we've all watched this type of show for so long we can figure out what is going on LONG before they show it to us (G)!! I will watch it again it to see how things play out I bet at some point this season the two shows will cross over again this time though NCIS LA will probably go out EAST since NCIS went WEST to them last year ...who knows?? but I will watch it again;

I have heard it rumored that some of the cast of NCIS will make an appearance on NCIS: Los Angeles. As you may have noticed, Rocky Carroll already did that in the first episode, even though it was by satellite. I have heard that Abby will make an appearance on there but I'm not sure if it is true. This is a hard thing for a spin off show to consider. Do they have some of the characters from the original show appear to bring watchers to their own show? Or do they think that doing that will take away their own unique spin? That's a hard call to make. It could go either way. I love the chemistry between Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J. However, I am so spoiled by the chemistry of the entire cast on NCIS that I am left a little tepid when watching their spin off. I didn't like Mace or Macy when I watched "Legends Part One and Two" on NCIS. I felt they tried to make her like Jenny and she completely fell flat on that point. I thought the actress was run of the mill and couldn't keep up with the rest of the cast. If I do decide to keep watching NCIS: Los Angeles it will be because of Chris, LL and the guy who plays Nate. Those three can act. The others - so so.

I didn't watch it as I don't even watch the original NCIS. But my parents loved it, as did several of my friends. I've read posts from Gather members who loved it too. I was most surprised by the good reviews from critics. Usually if a critic loves a show, a lot of people hate it. If a critic hates a show, a lot of people love it. I read that NCIS premiered to 20 million, and NCIS: LA premiered to 18.3 million. Both won their times slots. Seeing as it is a procedural, I often wonder how long the writers can keep it fresh. Maybe they'll get the feel of the show they want to make and it will get better.
