Kudos to the writers for having Ziva deal with anxiety. It's a humanizing and all-too-realistic detail for a woman who's lived the life she has.

Jan 21, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Yup, Ziva has definitely returned. It was certainly understandable why she had played dead after her father's farmhouse was blown up on NCIS Season 13 Episode 24.

Audience Reviews for NCIS: Season 17

  • Mar 11, 2020
    I love this series, great cast and the changes made along the way have worked well, I don't think this show should ever stop production, there's so many more stories to be told
  • Feb 13, 2020
    Great start to season 17 by re-introducing Ziva David. Will be interested if Ziva will get her Happy ending and start to build on her relationship with daughter Talli and Tony
  • Jan 29, 2020
    Who comes up with the scripts and casts of characters on this sad show? In earlier years, it was very good and entertaining to For someone who has worked for the DOD, Gibbs' behavior would not be tolerated and would have been dismissed. The pathetic acting of the new tech lab (Abbies replacement) is just plain sad to watch, and now Jimmy...what a neurotic fool. It has gone downhill since Dinozzo and Ziva left...
  • Jan 17, 2020
    So far so good, especially with the Ziva story lines and resolutions, though still some pretty important facts unanswered. Waiting for episode 11 in Australia... grrr why are we always so behind.
  • Nov 20, 2019
    The music over powers the story. The music is way to loud while the actors are talking. It does not help with the drama if you can't hear what is being said. Worst so far was S17 Ep8.
  • Oct 05, 2019
    Awesome... Opens up so many possibilities for this character. She has issues to resolve... I cant wait to see how she works through them and hopefully rejoins NCIS
  • Oct 01, 2019
    Only gets better and better each season even though the plots are moving away from traditional NCIS relevance.
