NCIS season six started strong as it focused
on why the team was broke up (and how they got back together). You learn
more about each character as each one gets at least one episode to focus on that character.
HEARTLAND features a flashback of Gibb's past and the appearance of his father. The new season has LEGEND which
is a two part pilot for the upcoming spin-off series, NCIS LA. Then
the end of season six sets the stage for another cliffhanger (as you’re left wondering how it will be resolved).
NCIS holds my attention more than some
of the other crime dramas (I'm talking of the LAW & ORDER dramas except the UK version which I haven't seen yet).
It started as a spin-off years ago from JAG and this show has surpassed JAG by leaps and bounds.
