I bought it very quickly, and liked watching the (slightly) higher quality DVD collection.

I recently got hooked onto the series, and found myself studying it, and the history surrounding it. While the characters were introduced on JAG, the term "spin-off" I didn't think appropriate for it. For those who have seen many of the Bellisarius productions, they seem to swing between emphasis on interpersonal relationships (Magnum, Quantum Leap) and strongly patriotic vehicles (Airwolf, JAG), with the shows having the better developed characters being the stronger shows.

This is why--and Don Bellisario backs this up in interviews--NCIS seems to lean more towards Magnum in terms of of how the characters react towards one another, and the quirks that play out with them. Mark Harmon's Gibbs--the lead investigator; doesn't work well with authority or other agencies (or his ex-wives), coffee-addicted, carving a boat in his basement, and known for his "mysterious redhead" companion. Michael Weatherly's DiNozzo--the jock who won't grow up, making a pass at anything with a skirt. Sasha Alexander's Kate--in an homage to "Moonlighting", becoming Maddie to DiNozzo's David; while being the mature and smarter part of that combination. Sean Murray's Tim McGee--yeah, he's the computer nerd. But women are seeing SOMETHING in him. Especially Abby. Which brings us to Pauley, Pauley, Pauley--Miss Perette takes our classic concept of a Goth chick and throws it out the window in a spectacular fashion, with her peppiness and her open attraction for the men in the office. It is David McCallum though that really brings the Magnum memory into clear relief. Think about John Hillerman's Jonathan Higgins on Magnum--know it all because he's seen it all. Put him in a lab coat and give him more and lighter hair, and we have Ducky Mallard.

If you want to know if you'll like this show read the first part of this review:

Are you someone who likes drama shows? Particuarly crime drama shows? If yes, continue on then.

Are characters that are easy to fall in love with important to you? Are you a human that enjoys a good laugh? Do you cherish the sweet moments on television?And do you crave out-of-your-seat tension that will keep you up all night wondering what will happen in the next episode?

If you said yes to all of these things, I guarantee that you will love this show!

And here is my personal take on NCIS:

I like crime dramas like CSI, Law and Order, JAG, and such. I also like thrillers like LOST. But I also like SpongeBob SquarePants.

CSI is okay, but it doesn't really have the laughs that I like in a show.

Law and Order is nice, but the relationships between the workers are too perfect.

LOST is nice, but once again, no laughs, no 5+star ratings.

NCIS has the wonderful combination of all of these show into one. It will leave you laughing, crying, or staying awake staring at the ceiling hating Dave Bellisaro.

I won't go on about the characters, because there are about 6 reviews talking about them.

I just wanted to give my take on this show. It is by far, my favorite show on the network.

NCIS is not JAG (which it was spun off from) nor CSI (which is was compared to and on the same network) nor is it Law and Order Criminal Intent (a show in a similar vein). Naval Criminal Investigative Service is a real life investigative agency, investigating miltary crimes connected to Navy . These show are not like Dragnet or the FBI , which use to take cases from these agencies.

Mark Harmon leads the team playing Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs with a cool aire in his step. With his second in command the con man-ish (think FACE from the A-Tean) Anthony Dinozzo (played by Dark Angel's Computer whiz Michael Weatherly-in a role more suited for his talents) and ex secret service Agent Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander) (who joined in the first episode). Doing medical for the team is "Ducky" Mallard (played by the EX Man from UNCLE's David McCallum). With Goth princess /Forensic Specialist Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette)rounding the team, they take on the unique and bizarre cases, which seem to have a ring of truth in today's world

Their methods are sometimes unorthodox, but always effective. Interesting TV. It does intrigue, however the mystery draws you in. This 6 disk 23 episodes will NEVER bore you, I will say that!

The extra have documentaries. The first episode has some insightful commentary by writer/producer/director Donald Bellisario.

However what is missing is the three part JAG episodes that introduced the NCIS program, which ran as part of the JAG series

Well maybe in season two of NCIS box set, just like Universal DVD did with The Rockford Files pilot, which it placed on Season two box set of Rockford.

So is it worth it, It is good solid smart mysteries that with makes you think , with a likeable cast, Go get it!

Finally the DVD version arrives. I have been waiting for DVD box since i saw the first episode on hallmark tv channel here in czech rep. I got many friends to watch the tv show and debates about the newest episodes are big part of our talks. NCIS is one of the best and clearly the most entertaining criminalistic TV shows of all times.

Its not only the great plots in each episodes with very surprising revelations. Its the magic of the characters being performed by great team of actors. I love the tension between Tonny and Kate, the coffee addiction of Gibson and Abby is simply charming with her pigtails and ruby red lips. The humor is better than what we can experience in many sitcoms and it is not ruined by "fake" laughter.

this one is simply going straight to my basket.
