'NCIS' react: What did you think of the New Orleans crew?

Washington D.C. crossed paths with The Big Easy on tonight’s episode of NCIS, which doubled as a backdoor pilot for a Louisiana-based spin-off.

In the episode, we met the small but mighty team of NCIS: New Orleans: Scott Bakula as leader Agent Pride, Lucas Black as hard southern gent Agent Lasalle and Zoe McClellan as NOLA transplant Agent Brody. CCH Pounder played the New Class’s medical examiner. Together with the regular batch of NCIS players, they worked the case of a dead congressman who was once a member of the Fed 5, the nickname given to a legendary group of agents that once included Pride, Gibbs and the late Mike Franks.

'NCIS' recap: Poorly equipped

There may not have been a bomb or international baddie being tracked down in this week’s episode of NCIS, but there were certainly lives on the line.

The team found themselves on a case that had them investigating the source of faulty body armor that was being sent to servicemen and women overseas by well-meaning loved ones, who were worried that the troops weren’t being properly equipped. The problem with this good intentioned act was that the non-sanctioned equipment the troops were receiving was not only ineffective but dangerous. When hit by powerful weapons, the ceramic plates inside these vests would burst and the shards would embed themselves in the flesh of the victims. In other words, there was double the danger to those being shot at.  READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: Welcome aboard

“Welcome aboard, probie.”

Those are the three words Ellie Bishop heard at the end of tonight’s NCIS, but getting to that point wasn’t easy.

In fact, there were a few moments in tonight’s episode, which saw the conclusion of the Benham Parsa arc, where it was clear that Gibbs and Bishop weren’t getting along at all. Their spat stemmed from the fact that Bishop had been hiding information about the Parsa case from the team. Specifically? She didn’t tell anyone that she was sort of an expert on him.

'NCIS' recap: Telling the truth

Last week’s NCIS left a lot of questions unanswered, particularly about the fate of McGee’s injured girlfriend Delilah, who was in rough condition after a bomb was detonated at a gala. This week, we got some resolution — and it was more tragic than I’d anticipated.

But let me start a the top of the episode… READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: 'Find him'

This week’s NCIS could have — and should have, if you ask me — been two hours long. But alas, we are left to fester in our anxiety for the next seven days thanks to a cliffhanger that left McGee’s girlfriend Delilah in peril and Bishop under immense pressure.

'NCIS' recap: 'Tis the season (to be afraid of spores)

Nothing says the holidays like a terrible public health outbreak!

But as terrifying as the circumstances were for that gang of NCIS on this week’s holiday-themed episode, the episode was from from all doom, gloom and a bunch of sick children who’d been infected with an African spore that cause strep pneumonia. There was also a lot of heart. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS': How many exes does it take to solve a crime?

Your regular recapper, Sandra Gonzalez, is out for the night, so I will be trying (and failing) to fill her shoes. Luckily, when she finds the time to catch up, she has a very entertaining hour ahead of her. And by entertaining, I mean full of relationship drama. The lesson of tonight’s episode is that relationships are complicated… particularly when all of your exes are entangled in the same investigation. Shall we start trying to detangle this web? READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: What did you think of Ellie Bishop?

The introduction of NSA analyst Ellie Bishop was not what I expected — and I mean that in a good way.

Why? Well, let’s dig into the episode and hopefully I can explain. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: Not-so-simple explanations

There were sort of two cases being investigated in tonight’s episode of NCIS. The first was a hit-and-run case and the other was a murder that was, unbeknownst to NCIS, committed by the suspect in the hit-and-run and also the suspect’s alibi.

The problem was that the suspect, a guy named Dunne, obviously, didn’t want to tell NCIS that another murder was his alibi. So while his lawyer (Salli Richardson-Whitfield), a former FBI agent, could clear him in the hit-and-run, she also didn’t want him to get away on the other murder. (She was bound by attorney-client privilege and could not tell them the whole truth.) So she helped clue-in the team at NCIS that something wasn’t right in her client’s story. READ FULL STORY
