All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

NCIS's 16th season -- 16! Old enough to drive a car! -- wastes no time in dropping us back into a world of action, plots and counterplots, quips, and Gibbs' stoicism.

It had everything a longtime fan would want.

    I used to love NCIS but it's getting harder and harder to watch. May be it's time?

    Just the perfect TV show! Mark Harmon is excellent and so are the rest of the cast. If you are into drama intrigue fun and police shows NCIS is the best to watch!!!!

    This show has one of the best character set up, even with new characters they move as one team. It does not get old because they shake up the cases and they are just likable folks
