New TV Show

I'm not a fan of all the CSI shows on TV.  The few times I've tried to watch them I never make it through an episode.  But whenever I go to visit my Mom, one of the shows we have to watch every Monday night is NCIS.  And if there's nothing else on she can always find a re run of the show somewhere on cable.  So slowly it's been burrowing under my skin.  The problem was that I saw the shows out of order and it didn't make sense.  This was why was everyone in civilian clothes.  A little research and I discovered that NCIS is civilian. 

But slowly, oh so slowly, this show was growing on me.  Until now I'm a fan.  I've bought the first two seasons on DVD and am on my way through the second season now.  The first season was great.  There's an episode in the second season about a Medal of Honour winner that will hit you in the heart and hard.  It's an amazing piece of televsion. 

And my favorite character.  Why Abby of course!

I've never been able to get into CSI, any of them, and haven't really watched the NCIS spin off, but I am really enjoying NCIS. It's a lot better than I expected.

Abby is one of the great characters on TV. And if the episode you refer to is the one with Charles Durning, then I agree completely that it is one of the best moments in weekly series programming.

I'm having trouble getting into the LA version of NCIS, but I love the original.

I agree completely. Abby is so original, such a great character. And yes I'm talking about the episode with Charles Durning, I just saw it for the first time last week and was so amazed by it. The scene where Durning and Kate dance at the NCIS headquarters, where the other Marines see his Medal of Honour and jump to many great scenes. I also agree about the spin off, I haven't been able to get into it.
