With the help of his ace medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum from The Man from U.N.C.L.E), Gibbs and his team are almost invincible when it comes to solving complicated crimes. Whether he's piecing together the bones of a body, or performing an autopsy on a crisply burnt poodle, Ducky is matter-of-fact as he talks to his dead "clients." Of his nervous but eager assistant Jimmy, Ducky notes, "He means well, but sometimes I have an overwhelming urge to slap him." This season, viewers get to see the romantic (and slightly gross) side of Ducky as he briefly romances a doctor half this age. Also on hand to aid (and annoy) Gibbs are happy-go-lucky Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), former Secret Service agent Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander), and forensics expert Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), who can solve anything if you say "please" and bring her a Big Gulp to sip. Look for a gentle guest appearance by Charles Durning as a Medal of Honor recipient who wants to turn himself in for killing his best friend and fellow comrade during World War II. While the plot twists won't surprise most viewers, the acting, writing, and spirit of the episode leaves the viewer feeling satisfied. --Jae-Ha Kim

Luckily, NCIS does the opposite: the formula comprises of characters first, crime second, and the show is embedded with such wit and humor that it's hard not to like it. The cast includes sarcastic Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon); ladies-man Tony DiNozzo (the highly attractive Michael Weatherly); witty Kate Todd (Sasha Alexander) to provide amusing banter with Tony; goth Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette); and M.E. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum), who has a passion for storytelling. Season two also adds probational officer ("probie") Tim McGee (played by Sean Murray) as a new agent to the team. (McGee guest starred in a number of episodes in season one as well.)
NCIS is a combination of comedy and drama, and if you like either of the above, you will most likely love NCIS. It's a shame that this show has only just begun to become popular; it deserves far more attention and praise than it has received so far.
Suggestion: the production company should include subtitles with future NCIS releases.
The series follows a team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which handles crimes connected to personnel of the United States Navy and Marine Corps, ranging from murder and kidnapping to espionage and terrorism. Created by Donald Bellisario (Quantum Leap, JAG), NCIS originally began as a two-part episode of JAG in the spring of 2003. The program then debuted on CBS as a stand-alone series in September of that same year.
Returning cast members from Season One include Mark Harmon stars as special agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, the no-nonsense leader of the NCIS team. Gibbs' teammates include former Secret Service agent Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander), special agent and former homicide detective Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), forensics expert/goth chick Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) and Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum, best remembered as The Man from U.N.C.L.E.'s Ilya Kuryakin), a quirky medical examiner. Rookie agent Tim McGee (Sean Murray), who was a recurring character in Season One, is now an NCIS regular.
Season Two begins to deepen the show's characters, developing them and their working relationships with each other progressing from the previous season. Bellisario gets us more involved in the characters and the program, and he does a great job of building up toward the climax of the season. Season Two ends with a bang and serves well to set up the show's third season.Read more ›
The dramas are hard hitting and demand attention, because they are so skillfully crafted. The villian is almost never the one you expect it to be, as it should be.
But I digress. What we see in Season 2 is the continued development of the characters; getting to know them a little more--seeing their quirks, and their little secrets. We begin to see a little more of Mark Harmon's Gibbs--going beyond the coffee and his ex-wives, finding more of his backstory. The relationship between Tony and Kate--the friendly rivalry that they have (Of course, Tony finding the picture in Florida of Kate in the wet t-shirt gets him even for his kissing the transvestite in Season 1...). Bringing Sean Murray into the fold, and watching the subtleties as Tim McGee somehow combines his nerdiness with learning to work the field. There's always Pauley Perrette's Abby--an absolute scream for her smarts and energy--and the great David McCallum's Ducky. Plus, getting to meet Ducky's mother in "The Meat Puzzle" (Somehow, Nina Foch's line to Sasha Alexander--"Let me see your knickers"--is going to stick with me for a lot of the wrong reasons)was a treat.
But the last two episodes--"SWAK", and especially the magnificent "Twilight"--shook the series. "SWAK" sets up the possibility of mortality on the team; "Twilight" follows through. The return of Rudolph Martin's unstable Mossad double agent, Ari Haswari, was always kept open through the second half of Season 1, and was brought back to the viewer's mind in "An Eye For An Eye". But the death of Kate--stunning as it was--was a good precursor for setting up how Season 3 played out.Read more ›

|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

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.

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??
