    NCIS LA is great. I don’t miss an episode and even watch the repeats.
    This show must NEVER be taken off.

  2. Casey says

    I like this show, but not as much as the much loved NCIS. Please, can the show runners stop having the police shouting from a block away, “police!” which, of course, leads to a stupid chase scene. Can’t they just walk up to a potential suspect and introduce themselves? This series also needs more Hettie, and an ongoing, deep subplot. The bickering between the characters is becoming annoying and needs a bit more subtlety to be effective. So far NICS LA has not measured up to it’s parent NCIS. The pieces are all there, they just need more care.

  3. Lauralee says

    As a whole, the show has good stories, with a good cast. The dynamics between the cast are interesting and entertaining. So, I am glad it has been renewed for a fifth season. :-)

    I totally agree with our friend, Billy P, “Don’t even think of taken this show off the air”. I think this show with its great cast and crew and also great stories still can be renewed for more seasons. I can’t even think that this season will be the last one.

  5. Steve says

    Great show, watch it every week. Show has a great future. I’d like to see the “lead” investigator change once in a while…Use the individual skills to take the lead.

  6. Debbie P says

    This show is fabulous, fast paced and well written. Hetty is priceless and the glue that holds the show together.
    7+ is the magic number of years for this winner!

    Regards
