N is for NCIS

Today we have reached one of those long-running shows that most people have at least heard of, if not seen. It's a wonderful show, really. NCIS!

NCIS, if you don't know, stands for Naval Criminal Investigative Service. It's a procedural cop drama, but they only deal with Navy-related things. The death of an officer, the kidnapping of an officer's child, a bomb on a ship, that sort of thing. But it's cool and its funny, and it makes you fall in love with all of the characters, but especially Gibbs and Abby. Gibbs is totally no-nonsense, very intelligent, and like a father to the people under his care. Abby is the cutest, happiest goth you'll ever see, extremely smart, and very excitable. She and Gibbs share a special sort of bond (aka she gets away with stuff no one else ever would). Its awesome to watch. 

NCIS started in 2003 and continues today, and in 2009 spawned a spin-off called NCIS L.A. (same thing, but they're a secret branch in Los Angeles. Hetty is like the tiny female version of Gibbs, but even more classy, talented, and mysterious), and in 2014 spawned NCIS New Orleans (same thing, but in New Orleans. I've only seen the first episode, and am very excited to watch more!).

If you like procedural cop dramas with personality and characters to die for, you'll like any and all of these shows!

also, idk why this picture of NCIS L.A. looks like the 40's, but it's totally awesome and I had to share:

Available on Canadian Netflix: No to all


  1. This show is becoming a regular CSI with all the spin-offs! I haven't actually watched this, but I got it out from the library a few times.

    Also, I think you should add to each post if the show is available on Netflix, for convenience purposes of course, haha.

    1. LOL I can totally see you doing that. XD

      Oooo, good idea! QUICK, TIME TO EDIT THINGS!

  2. Oh my gosh! I recently started on season 1 and I LOVE this show a whole lot :D Though I only watch when I need plot bunnies of some sort.....

    1. Isn't it great? XD and haha what sort of plot bunnies do you get from it? ;D
