It's cool, it's hip, and it's, uh, mediocre
Thucydides 1 | USA | 09/15/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The structure of the NCIS LA team is hampered by the fact that there is no strong central authority figure, like Gibbs is in the D.C. NCIS office. It all looks like a bunch of twenty-somethings running around trying to be cool, and that, coupled with some fairly boring, second-rate script writing makes for a mediocre series. LL Cool J is the most interesting character in this unremarkable, formulaic series, but even he can't save it from being so predictable and unimaginative. The gee-whiz technical stuff works so much better in the regular NCIS series, due to the splendid character portrayals by "McGee" and "Abby", so really, what has NCIS LA got to recommend it, week after week? Oh, it's not horrible, but just about anything else is a better use of my time.
My feeling about the D. C. NCIS is totally different -- I own the DVDs of all seven seasons of it and anxiously await the rollout of season eight."
