With two solid seasons already banked, NCIS returns for a compelling third year with exciting plotlines and a slightly tweaked cast. The show's second season ended with the brutal and shocking death of Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander). The first two episodes of this season deal with the aftermath of bringing her killer to justice and examining the emotional impact of her loss on the remaining members of the NCIS team, which is led by Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). The six-disc set includes all 24 episodes, which aired on CBS during 2005-2006. Returning are happy-go-lucky ladies' man Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly, Dark Angel), forensics expert and resident Goth chick Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum, The Man from U.N.C.L.E), and agent Timothy McGee (Sean Murray). Former Mossad intelligence officer Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) joins the close-knit cast, as does Jennifer Shepard (Lauren Holly, Dumb & Dumber) as the new NCIS director. Working on a daily basis with Shepard initially makes Gibbs wary. Not only is she a former girlfriend, but she also was his underling at one time. Equal parts CSI and JAG, NCIS works primarily because of its quirky cast, which is able to take sometimes regurgitated ideas and rework them into something engagingly watchable. Throughout this season, we will see agents endangered and framed, and one will accidentally kill an undercover detective who may not have been armed. But the explosive two-part season finale will finally shed light on Gibbs' painful history and help explain why he is who is he today. --Jae-Ha Kim

I thought that everything was done in a very realistic manner and new stories were opened up that apparently are still memorable years later since I remembered so many of them, even though I have not caught an NCIS marathon in years.
I much prefer NCIS to all other "detective" type shows out there, for lots of reasons. First, although there are some quite graphic scenes involving violence and dead bodies, it is still quite tame when compared with something like CSI. Also, the fact that NCIS deals specifically with military cases gives it a very different feel from the average crime drama. But, in my opinion, the best part of the show is the depth of characterization. These are not super-cops who are all business and love to show off their skills. These are very believable characters, ordinary people who just happen to work on crime scenes. Although it is never sappy, there are many scenes that are quite emotional, where the characters have to confront an especially ugly crime, or to deal with something from their past.
One word of caution: Parents should be aware that although most crime dramas are more graphic and disturbing than NCIS, this show is certainly not PG rated. There are still graphic scenes of blood, mutilated dead bodies, dismembered limbs, and dissections. Additionally, there is a fair amount of sexual innuendo and content, although it is never graphic.
Overall, I think this is an excellent show, with both edge-of-your-seat excitement, and surprising emotional depth. After watching NCIS, I don't know if I will ever be able to enjoy another crime show as much as I do this one. I love the characters, the action, the emotion, and the continuing story of the characters throughout all the episodes. Absolutely fabulous!
