Why I Love Watching The Show: NCIS

NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) is an action police procedural television series that revolves around a team of special agents. The show, concept, and characters were introduced in two episodes of JAG (Judge Advocate General) on CBS. NCIS premiered on September 23, 2003, and to date, it has aired sixteen seasons. As of 2019, it is the second-longest-running non-animated US primetime TV series and the 7th-longest-running scripted U.S. primetime TV series overall.


In season six, of NCIS of 2003, a two-part episode led to the spin-off series, NCIS: Los Angeles and in the eleventh season, a two-part episode led to the spin-off series, NCIS: New Orleans. Both series will begin their new seasons in September 2019.


I love these shows because I can relate to some of the characters or I know someone that they remind of.

Leroy Jethro Gibbs - Supervisory Special Agent - Mark Harmon


Gibbs' wife and daughter were murdered, and he traveled to Mexico to murder the drug dealer that murdered his family. He kept this secret for 20 years. Gibbs has been married and divorced three times. Currently, he is single. He has had several romantic relationships since his last divorce that don't seem to last. Gibbs leads a Major Case Response Team (MCRT) consisting of field agents. Gibbs is known for his Gibbs' Rules that he and his team live by.

Timothy McGee - Case Agent/Field Agent/Writer/Senior Field Agent - Sean Murray

Tim is the grounded agent. He is the computer consultant and assists the other agents. Tim is an awesome and effective team player because he is respected for his knowledge. He is also the friend that all the agents often need.

Leon Vance - Assistant Director/Director - Rocky Carroll

Vance is married and has two children. His wife was murdered in season ten. Vance and Gibbs have not always seen everything eye to eye. However, over the seasons and through many cases, they have now become great colleagues and friends that look out for each other.

Ellie Bishop - NSA Analyst/Special Agent - Emily Wickersham

Ellie is a country girl who is somewhat reclusive and awkward. She "remembers almost everything she reads," and thinks while sitting cross-legged on the floor. She loves food and often eats at her desk. She's a perfectionist, always trying to do better. She was married but later separated after finding out her husband was having an affair. Afterward, she later divorced her husband. She is still single.

Nick Torres - Undercover Agent - Wilmer Valderrama

Nick has been an NCIS deep cover agent for many years. He has trouble readjusting to normal life and working with a team. He has worked alone for so long that he doesn't know how to work with a team or appreciate a team. However, his team works with him and wants him on the team, appreciates and respects his skills. Nick often breaks the rules, which causes problems between him and Gibbs.There are so many more characters on the NCIS shows. Some are simple, and others are complex, and this is what makes the show so great. For some of the characters, you have to watch the show for months or years to determine exactly what has been going on for years.
