There's not a single character I'd change — none that irritate — they're all excellent. I just wish she was more of a main character and they had her onscreen more. I felt her performance was superb and that her character a. Assisting them are Abby Sciuto, the. Abby Sciuto Pauley Perrette a perky Goth not as oxymorous as it sounds who has an imprecise number of tattoos on her body and is the greatest at her job. Even my father-in-law likes this and we normally have totally different viewing preferences! Tim is a computer whiz, but is at a loss when it comes to social life; has gotten a tattoo on his butt to impress Sciuto - and it worked. Also, McGee visits an elite technology company in Silicon Valley that is offering him a highly paid position.
And then Mark Harmon, as the pained old man leader of this band of miscreants or more appropriately excrements, who looks like a man with a bad case of piles. Kate Todd Sasha Alexander , killed in the Season 2 Finale, who came from Secret Service, and made a point of bringing it up whenever the occasion presented itself, and came off as quite the uptight girl; all in all, the weakest character in the show, though her witty 'Hepburn-Tracy' rapid-fire dialogues with DiNozzo were great, and she had with him the strongest hetero almost-text this side of Gil Grissom and Catherine Willows. Dearly departed Special Agent Kate Todd more later and Special Agent Tim McGee more later have suffered the brunt of that in various occasions. The character Abby is great and funny. His diatribe on the terrorist and what he did to his assistant alone is Emmy award stuff-don't mess with Ducky ever again! But then again I guess this is all decided and in the can.
So I watch it - and would recommend it for that reason alone. Has been mercilessly teased by DiNozzo when he first joined the team, getting the absolutely-not-flattering nickname 'Probie' 'Pivello' 'Greenhorn' in the Italian Version. And females actually look up to her? They have the ability to get live digital video and audio feeds on any person they want, which is absolutely ridiculous. I was very disappointed in the elimination of Sasha Alexander from the series. Because of a technicality, the murderer could walk free. The underlying sexual tension between several of the characters is also intriguing and interesting to watch, the most obvious of these being the relationship between Tony and Kate, but there's also hints at Kate and Gibbs, McGee and Abby, and so on.
This is the first show where a Goth type character is shown as something more than some wierdo to be avoided. So I strongly disagree with the featured reviewer - what's wrong with having a patriotic drama? He enjoys to torment someone, usually the newest element of the team. If only things were that easy, right?. He is very loyal, and actually cares for his team, but has problems with women evidence of this being three failed weddings. Both series are ludicrous in that regard. Then we have the reason for Rule 12-Special Agent Catlin Todd-the writers don't always have a clue as to her portrayal but she always pulls it off and that humor of hers-the end lines alone are great! David James Elliot is charged with her murder and while his arrest and trial is taking place, Mark Harmon chases after some badass terrorist.
There's a depth and a comradeship that isn't often showed this well in television. Fortunately it's worth the wait! Harmon's so sexy in this role and McCallum is always a joy to watch as Ducky especially when he's on the role over various anthropology lectures which to my amusement everyone on that shows roll up their eyeballs. In a flurry of unbelievable events, series star Commander Harmon Rabb Jr. Also, what on earth is this show doing on at 9:30pm on Sunday? The characters are cardboard cutouts, the script lines vary from turgid to absurd, the humour just doesn't make it. I'm for law and order in this country and a military veteran and a true believer in free speech, but this kind of nonsense should be banned as an insult to our military, government and law enforcement in general. Comes from money, but doesn't get an allowance because if he did, he wouldn't work, and it seems there is bad blood between him and his family. His stories are hysterical, then his sad commentary on the life or death of their latest subject-just gives you pause.
Enev the Girl from Uncle would be a better role model for girls, not that incompetent airhead Kate. His obsession with Ari the terrorist , his list of rules, then his tendency to think out of the box just adds to the spice and pace of this show. Tonight sees Kasie solve a 30-year-old cold case but the murderer may still walk. Remember when he was and heading into the private sector? I think the producers have a hit here. In the real world, this would never happen as they are so secretive of what they do that it would be impossible to gain any cooperation for some insight into this. He has proved his valor, though, time and time again.
The characters are believable, both annoying and enchanting, and the plots are wonderful. I have serious doubts about the taste of those who highly rated this show!!! Otherwise, even though I'm also a fan of McCallum, I find the treatment of his character difficult to take complete disdain from one and all and the other characters are fingernail on chalkboard annoying. Tim McGee Sean Murray , who joined the team in the second season after making various guest-appearances throughout the first season. The show is very good and Tom Harmon plays his character exceedingly well; as do the rest of the cast. Mark Harmon just acts like a grumpy old man. Sasha Alexander strength in character serviced as a good role model for women, especially young women in general in encouraging them to become members of the N. The best part of this show was when they killed off Kate in the last episode.
I sure hope they keep most of the cast in the next season, as they seem to play off each other brilliantly. The team is formed by: Leroy Jethro Gibbs the second B stays for Bastard Mark Harmon , the moody, intuitive head investigator; he likes his coffee very strong, his women with red hair, and his investigations thorough. This has become my favorite regular show on the main networks. My favorite though is Pauley Perrette's character. Gibbs and his gang are first and foremost investigators, not hoity-toity staff officers who moonlight as stereotyped combat soldiers with thickly-laid-on patriotic dogma that would make Ward Carroll vomit with rage.
Rich story lines, strongly portrayed and very human personalities you can really warm to who play off each other brilliantly, all with their own distinctive quirks and — above all — the always wonderful Mark Harmon as main character! Easily one of the best shows on television today, suspenseful, humorous and real-not always pleasant or formulaic-but real! I hope the show stays on a long time- Tuesday nights wouldn't be the same with out it. I think Pauley Perette was the ideal actress to cast. Plus his constant dueling with DiNozzo-priceless! Mark Harmon stars as Jethro Gibbs, the leader of a team of an anti terrorist unit of the Naval Criminal Investigative Services. I was delighted when I heard that there was a second series imminent. May is almost here and that means one thing: shows are coming to an end for the season. You'd need the constant buzz of fluorescent lights in the background combined with pages and pages of forms being typed into the computer --- mostly about drug abuses by young 18 year olds.
