The review now will mainly focus on a review of the special features, but I will come back in a couple of weeks with an analysis of the entire season. SPECIAL FEATURES:
Audio commentaries were recorded for TWISTED SISTER, DEAD MAN WALKING, SKELETONS, GRACE PERIOD, COVER STORY, and ANGEL OF DEATH.

8 featurettes are spread over the six discs. These featurettes are of more interest than the audio commentaries. I still hold out for deleted scenes or even a gag reel. Many of them cover the behind-the-scenes work in making episodes of NCIS:
Disc 4-
DUCKY'S WORLD has a tour of the autopsy lab set by David McCallum and he also tells what are the differences between a show autopsy and a real one.
BEHIND THE SET: THE PRODUCTION DESIGN OF N.C.I.S. show all the work that goes into making the show and all the various departments involved.

Disc 5-
DRESSED TO KILL: DRESSING THE SETS OF N.C.I.S.- a tour of the N.C.I.S. warehouse of furniture, electronics, and more used to dress each of the show.
PROP MASTER- the prop master goes through the various props used by actors and to help bring details to the costumes of the characters.

Disc 6-
PICTURE PERFECT: THE LOOKS OF N.C.I.S.- a behind-the-scene look at how the show is shot including the inventive camera work.
SEASON OF SECRETS- a look at the various relationships that were developed (and one that had to be changed) during the course of season 4.

Also on Disc 2 and 3 is a two part CAST ROUNDTABLE featurette as the entire cast answer fan questions while having dinner.

FINAL ANALYSIS: The set is packed with many great extras. I still miss the fantastic menus of the first two season sets and the show continues to packed with a few strong episodes.
