superbBy williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 10 Apr 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]this dvd boxset is superb. the head investigator of the NCIS team, is Special Agent LeRoy Jethro Gibbs, who is played by Mark Harmon, he was a gunnery sergeant (gunnie), and ex- sniper in the Marine Core.
Catlin Todd (Cate), who joins at the beginning of the series, enables the writers to explain the intricacies of NAVY protocol to us, as she learns from Jethro and Tony. She is a grounded character, and with a background as a bodyguard to the president , is very capable of handling herself, both with the criminals and tony's advances.
Tony Dinozzo, is an established member of NCIS when the series begins, he has an enjoyable relationship with jethro, who is something of a mentor and disciplinarian to him, but stands on his own two feet, for his undisputed capability, despite a somewhat juvenile sense of humour and pursuit of women.
Dr. Donald Mallard also known as Ducky, is played by the wonderful David MaCallum, he is the NCIS pathologist, medical examiner and coroner. His character is english, and loves to tell a story or two, from his long medical career, and University days. he is endearingly sweet, and despite the gruesome circumstances, where you usually encounter him, usually to be found up to his elbows, in some poor soul, as he talks to the dead, and cares for his 96 year old mother, who has Altzeimers, he is a wonderfully appealing character.
The Other major character, is the goth lab technician Abby. she is always amusing in her scenes, as she brings life and humour, into a job that has been portrayed in rather a dull light in other shows.
Abby's outfits are fabulous. in fact Abby is a real sweetheart, who brooks no argument about her science, knows what to test and why, and always comes through for the team. Gibbs is very fond of her.
This show is a fine blend of forensics, clever plots, action and gentle humour.
The plots are full of twists and turns, you get enough laboratory and autopsy scenes, to engage your interest in the story, to follow the investigating leads with the team. The chemistry between all the actors is completely believable, the teasing, the banter, the infighting, the politics, and their individual private life storylines.
this series is well worth renting out.

Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008As i found out later this is a spin off series, but its great achievement is disguising that fact from anyone unfamiliar with JAG. It stands on it's own with great storylines, actors and continual suspense. The hinge of the program is Mark Harmon's character Jethro, who heads up the team as an ex sniper and peculiar father figure to the younger member's. Cate, who joins at the beginning of the series, enables the writers to explain the intricacys of NAVY protocal to us as she learns from Jethro and Tony. She is a grounded character and with a background as bodyguard to the president very capable of handling herself, both with the criminals and tony's advances. Tony Denozzo, an established member of NCIS when the series begins has an enjoyable relationship with jethro, who is something of a mentor and disciplinarian, but stands on his own for his undisputed capability despite a somewhat juvenile sense of humor and pursuit of women. The Cast is also blessed with wonderful smaller characters- those who remain for the most part within the confines of NCIS headquarters- 'Ducky' Dr.Mallard, the NCIS coroner, who some may recognise from 'The Man From UNCLE' fame. Is wonderful, and to the credit of the show not completely a typical enlgish character, but one you find endearingly sweet and despite the grusome circumstances you usually encounter him in, a truly appealing character. The Other major character, is the goth lab technician Abby. Always amusing in her scenes, she brings life and humor to a job that has been portrayed in rather a dull light in the past. Tune in just for her outfits! :) As the series progressed i became more and more addicted, not in the most part to the crimes they had to solve- which are always fascinating- but as is the hallmark of any good crime show to the continuing appeal of the characters. Mark Harmon pulls the series together undoubtably, but each of the actors brings something new- a different generational perspective, a different national perspective, a humor and background that is unique in each of them, and makes for a thoroughly watchable and highly, highly recommended show. I'm waiting -not at all patiently- for the next series.
Good stuffBy a customer from Bourne , 18 Jun 2008Liked this as a start like a military CSI so pleased
Slick but pretty averageBy Benhuczek (145 reviews) from London , 24 Mar 2008I'd heard rave reviews and missed the whole lot on TV. So I thought I'd give it a go. I suppose the only benefit is that once the adverts are stripped out, each episode is only about 40 minutes. And therein lies the problem ...
The plot lines are pretty ridiculous and there's not enough time in the episode to develop the churning support characters. Slowly, we're getting to learn about the main characters, but they are pitifully thin and formulaic.
You've got the older guy who holds it all together; the tattooed geeky scientist who happens to be a goth throwback; the eye candy for blokes & women, who just bicker all the time and then, what on earth is David McCullum supposed to be doing? He just cuts up dead bodies, in between his 100% ham-it-up portrayal.
I've stopped the rest of season 1 coming and thank my lucky stars that (at the time of writing) I haven't wasted my life watching all four seasons on TV.
If you like this sort of thing, then I'm sure you'll be OK. Regrettably, I don't.
DisappointingBy CashOnTheNail (130 reviews) from Manchester , 29 Feb 2008Love the show, way better than CSI, though Season 1 gets off to a slow start.
Worth renting anyway to be introduced to characters & general plot.
