Product Description



Equal parts JAG and C.S.I., NCIS does a formidable job of blending relevant military headlines with quirky characters who are tenaciously determined to solve a crime--even if it means having to sleep in the morgue to get a few minutes of shut eye. Created by Donald P. Bellisario (JAG, Quantum Leap), NCIS actually began as a two-part episode of JAG in 2003. Later that year, the drama made its full-season debut on CBS. On this six-disc set, which includes all 23 non-JAG episodes plus optional commentary by Bellisario on the first episode, viewers are introduced to an elite squad of special agents, led by Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). Gibbs is a hard-nosed investigator who doesn't say much. But when he does, an insult usually comes out of his mouth. He's brilliant when it comes to ferreting out the truth, but he's not savvy enough to figure out how to block his ex-wife's nagging phone calls. Instead, he makes do by destroying his cell phone. Gibbs' team is fleshed out by an eclectic and somewhat eccentric set of colleagues, including medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum from The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), wannabe playboy and former homicide detective Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), forensics expert and resident Goth chick Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), and former Secret Service agent Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander).

The murder of a peripheral NCIS agent halfway through the season is a taste of what's to come in future seasons when core characters leave the show (voluntarily or not). But in its first year, the show sets up a strong premise that (while not wholly original) is well executed. One of the more stickling aspects of the show is its reluctance to allow Tony to show signs of maturity. At times, he behaves more like a rambunctious puppy than an ace investigator. --Jae-Ha Kim

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!

As a fan of JAG I immediately became a fan of NCIS. Mark Harmon makes a great lead character in his portrayal of Leroy Jethro Gibbs. NCIS is unlike many programs in which the lead character is too big to allow for the development of the supporting cast. It is a great ensemble show. Every character on the show is quirky, interesting and fully dimensional. Pauley Perrette is hysterically funny as lab tech Abby. Her character hooked me onto the show and Harmon and the rest of the team made me stay.

I would have given the boxset 5 stars if it were not for the subpar DVD format. There are no subtitles which I find to be a must. Also there are is no SCENE SELECTION!!! Without scene selection, I might as well be watching VHS. Once I got past these shortcomings, I still loved the show and the characters. I just hope the boxset for Season 2 and 3 correct these problems.

Does anyone know why Sasha left the show?
According to the internet, the grind of filming was more than she wanted. I believe she returned to theatrical plays in New York. I enjoyed her performances also and was sad to see her go. She left on a positive note with the crew, no problems between any of them. It was her choice. Nice to hear... Read More

Season 3 has subtitles
I've purchased seasons 1,2,4 and 5. Only season 5 has subbies. I needed those. Any idea of whot to contact? This is ridiculous for 2009. I really need those and that is a significant reason I purchased DVD's.

spanish dubbed?
I have seasons 1-3 dubbed and the rest of them are only subbed. Which is unfortunate. I was fairly upset. Who dubs 3 seasons and decides that the rest of the show should only be subbed??
