NCIS: F'd Up
I'll admit it, I watch NCIS. There aren't many redeeming values to that statement. The show is silly, to say the least. It bothers me to no end to think that federal agents would exhibit the emotional maturity of a 7th grader in heat. But I watch it. Can't explain it. In the last season they had a special two part series where they went to LA and hooked up with the super secret department of NCIS that featured a techie LL Cool J and a rebel anti-hero in Chris O'Donnel (snort AND giggle). An obvious segway to a spin-off but it still hurt to see the advertisements last night for NCIS: Los Angeles. This is the death of broadcast dramas. Not the locational CSI franchise or the divisional Law & Order spins, this alone flags the end of any original ideas from ABC, NBC, or CBS. House may just be the last drama worth watching. Thank god for HBO.
