Critic Reviews for NCIS Season 9

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

NCIS often gets a bad reputation because it's a procedural. But naysayers need only look at last night's season finale as an example of what this show is capable of accomplishing.

Apr 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Part of the appeal of NCIS has to be that it's not hard to get the lay of the land and keep the characters straight even if you do start to feel half asleep while watching it, which is not an unlikely development

Nov 1, 2011 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The Gibbs and Tony interaction was absolutely superb and may have been some of the best I've seen in this series so far.

Oct 30, 2013 | Full Review…

What resulted was a very strong episode and plenty of questions answered, but also more loose ends to say the least.

Audience Reviews for NCIS: Season 9

  • Dec 30, 2017
    On par with season 8 as one of the best years of the show, season 9 meshes an incredible set of recurring guest stars with an almost perfect main cast to give stellar performances from the suspenseful season premiere to one of the biggest cliffhanger finales in TV history.
