Equal parts JAG and C.S.I., NCIS does a formidable job of blending relevant military headlines with quirky characters who are tenaciously determined to solve a crime--even if it means having to sleep in the morgue to get a few minutes of shut eye. Created by Donald P. Bellisario (JAG, Quantum Leap), NCIS actually began as a two-part episode of JAG in 2003. Later that year, the drama made its full-season debut on CBS. On this six-disc set, which includes all 23 non-JAG episodes plus optional commentary by Bellisario on the first episode, viewers are introduced to an elite squad of special agents, led by Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). Gibbs is a hard-nosed investigator who doesn't say much. But when he does, an insult usually comes out of his mouth. He's brilliant when it comes to ferreting out the truth, but he's not savvy enough to figure out how to block his ex-wife's nagging phone calls. Instead, he makes do by destroying his cell phone. Gibbs' team is fleshed out by an eclectic and somewhat eccentric set of colleagues, including medical examiner Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum from The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), wannabe playboy and former homicide detective Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), forensics expert and resident Goth chick Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), and former Secret Service agent Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander).

The murder of a peripheral NCIS agent halfway through the season is a taste of what's to come in future seasons when core characters leave the show (voluntarily or not). But in its first year, the show sets up a strong premise that (while not wholly original) is well executed. One of the more stickling aspects of the show is its reluctance to allow Tony to show signs of maturity. At times, he behaves more like a rambunctious puppy than an ace investigator. --Jae-Ha Kim --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I stumbled onto this show one night on a rerun and have since become obsessed. I like the crime scene shows (CSI, etc.) but sometimes find them very clinical and lacking in personality. This show has somehow managed to avoid that problem, while still maintaining the aspects that I liked about the other crime shows, this one keeps up the personality that I love. It's definetley a character driven show, which just keeps you wanting more. Well worth collecting.

I like Forensics. I like mysteries. Where CSI tends to favor hitting you over the head with it's plot points, NCIS doesn't feel like it's insulting you as you watch it.

I've seen better shows. But you know it feels like it's comfortable where it is. It's a good, but not great mystery series.

The characters are real, and for the most part are natural. Minus the hostile workplace dynamics that if it were real life would have pretty much everyone getting court martialed.

It's also about the only TV show or movie I've seen where when it comes to computers they actually do some research instead of just making stuff up that sounds like it'd fit right in on Star Trek. But even though the words are right... sometimes it just doesn't fit in naturally.

As seems to be the theme... good, but not great on the research.

Furthermore, I am not a fan of the United States Armed Forces. But the way NCIS handles these issues? Doesn't bother me especially. I can only assume because they have the good sense not to alienate liberals. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this series. It's a fun little show, but it's not going to blow any minds.

NCIS was completely new to me until about six months ago. A friend told me about it and one night when nothing was on television (imagine that!) I tuned into it for the first time. I enjoyed it thoroughly from the first episode I watched. What a cast and they work so well together. Each quirky character has something unique to add to each episode and the stories are intriguing and interspersed with a good deal of humour. I couldn't get enough of the present day episodes so I decided to see how it all got started. When I ran out of episodes to watch from Season One I immediately ordered Season Two. Don't want to miss a thing!

This show is Fantastic. The only thing that was missing was the cross over episode from JAG which I some day want to get. For anyone that likes crime drama, this is probably the best.

I got this for my husband - we both really enjoyed the cross-over pilot with JAG. The first season of NCIS is quite exciting with interesting storylines. Great interaction between the characters as well.

J'ai commencé à écouter cette série en 2013. J'ai voulu écouter tous les épisodes. Ils sont tous intéressants. I highly recommend it.

Who doesn't know NCIS? Who has never watch an episode? Been following it since the start and I have to say that it got better with time. Season 1 is a slow start but is clearly an incentive to buy all the other seasons.
