Critic Reviews for NCIS: Los Angeles: Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (14)

If Chris O'Donnell has a thousand faces, they all have the same expression, and it's asking why he ordered ranch dressing instead of creamy Italian.

NCIS: Los Angeles is as old as the hills - the Hollywood Hills, to be exact.

Top Critic

It all adds up to an hour of decent entertainment, and there's room for enough character development to give NCIS: Los Angeles a personality of its own.

September 22, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's all about the crimes, the technology, the guns, and, mostly about not having - or wanting - to think too much.

September 22, 2009 | Full Review…

"NCIS: Los Angeles" is butterscotch candy. If you're bored, and it's sitting in a candy dish in front of you, you might take one. But it's not anything you'd seek out.

June 15, 2018 | Full Review…

It's all about the energized action, the cool tech and the momentum, all of which made this a top ten show and the number two rated scripted drama in TV (right behind the original NCIS) in its debut season.
