Format: DVD
"NCIS" continued its superb run as network TV's top-ranked drama series into its eighth season, blessed by the return of an outstanding core cast with its fun team chemistry, and some exciting and entertaining story lines.

Mark Harmon returns as crusty Senior Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, leader of the NCIS Major Case Response Team, assisted by Michael Weatherly as wise-cracking Special Agent Tony DiNozzo, Cote de Pablo as former Mossad agent/newly-minted Special Agent Ziva David, and Sean Murray as computer whiz Special Agent Tim McGee, backed by Pauley Parrette as unique forensic tech Abby Sciuto and David McCallum as venerable medical examiner "Ducky" Mallard.

The season opener resolves last season's cliffhanger, the team's deadly confrontation with a drug cartel targeting Special Agent Gibbs. A midseason multi-episode segment reveals the complicated backstory of NCIS Director Leon Vance and his Israeli counterpart, while bringing Ziva face to face with her estranged father. In the case of a missing nuke, Robert Wagner makes a priceless return appearence as Tony's father. Veteran comedian Bob Newheart has a sobering guest role as Ducky's predecessor. And, we find out how Tony and Gibbs first met.

The highlight of the season may be the five episode story arc concerning the Port-to-Port Killer, a serial killer who preys on members of the Navy. Director Vance brings in a competing team from Rota, Spain, headed by Special Agent E.J. Barrett, to lead the investigation. The case will involve the CIA, some Navy secrets, and Gibbs' mentor Mike Franks, while complicating the personal lives of Ziva and Tony. The final episode suggests the presence of an unknown traitor within the ranks of NCIS.

The "NCIS: Season Eight" DVD set is very highly recommended to fans of NCIS.

NCIS continues to surprise me. I always think that the next season cannot be as good as the last, but somehow the story, the characters and the plot continue to grow and evolve. Season eight was my favourite season so far. I think the running plot of the port to port killer really added an extra element to the series, especially when he seems to have focused his attention upon Gibbs. Some of my favourite episodes happen in this series and I think one of the most shocking episodes that rivals, Kate's Death, happens in this series. I cannot find enough words to say all the good things I want to say about this series. I hope that Season Nine continues in the same direction as Season Eight. A recommended buy!

Season 8 picked up where season 7 left off, but the quality was 100x better, first, we see a duo of episodes dedicated to the past of Director Leon Vance, and how he first came to join NCIS, I'm personally not a Leon fan, but these episodes damn well nearly changed my mind. Secondly, we see a Special Agent Caitlin Todd-centric episode, via flashback of course. One missing scene, and a new speaking part (Sasha recorded specifically for this episode) dubbed over an old scene, finally, rounding out our collection of blast to the past episodes is a DiNozzo centric episode, the inside jokes in this one, as well as the Vance one are legendary.

Jenny is mentioned a lot, too, a flashback of her is seen in the Kate episode, also.

NCIS continues to deliver great storylines, and this season is one of, if not the, best, with Special Guest Stars such as the brilliant Sarah Jane Morris and Kerr Smith, as well as some making their final appearances, ie Muse Watson (Mike), this is a must for both fans, and casual watchers.

Brian Dietzen! Jimmy finally made it to a cover, lets hope this is the first step to him making it to the main cast!

I pre-ordered this set from Amazon, and when it arrived and I put it in the player, I was a bit surprised to see some serious pixellation during some fast movement scenes. I have an upconverting DVD player, and assumed that the problem might have been with it - but still saw the same when I popped it into my computer also. It wasn't bad enough to warrant sending it back, but it was noticeable. Just for the sake of checking, I later bought another copy of this season from a brick and mortar store, and while that transfer had a bit less pixellation than the first, there was still noticeable ghosting during fast movement. Also the video seems cropped just a bit short on width, does not quite fill the screen (not aspect-ratio wise, it's correctly widescreen; just a bit of extra black showing at either end, again on both HTS player and on the computer).

I bought an episode through the Instant Video section, and none of those problems seem to exist with the HD streaming version - it is as crisp and clear as I'd recalled it being on broadcast day, so apparently it's not the source that is/was the problem. I do not know what they did while transferring these to DVD, but I hope they don't do it again with season 9. It's a great show - c'mon, CBS, don't sell it short by issuing such poor-quality transfers as this again.

Apparently there are 2 packaging versions of season 8 out there: the one with the multiple slim DVD cases inside a cardboard cover (just like all the other seasons) and then there's the multiple DVDs in a single DVD case.

The latter is what I received, and needless to say, I'm pissed. It matches none of the other seasons in my collection, and there's no way to tell which version you're ordering from the generic photo on this page.

I feel like you should know this if you're a collector before you buy this season. I've noticed this problem with another series as well, but I feel like Amazon should at least give people the option of choosing which version to purchase.

That said, I love this show and have only good things to say about it.
