Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Television veteran Donald P. Bellisario -- whose extraordinary hit list includes Kojak, Magnum P.I., Quantum Leap, and many others -- added this excellent crime drama to his resume in the fall of 2003. The NCIS Naval Criminal Investigative Service is charged with investigating all crimes involving Navy and Marine Corps personnel, regardless of rank or position, which yields a series that combines elements of TV giants CSI, Law & Order, and, not surprisingly, Bellisario’s own JAG. The show follows a special team, headed by Leroy Jethro Gibbs Mark Harmon, that operates outside of the military chain of command. A skilled investigator and tough interrogator, Gibbs leads a unit that includes street-smart former homicide detective Anthony Dinozzo Michael Weatherly, offbeat forensic scientist Abby Sciuto Pauley Perrette, and experienced physician Donald "Ducky" Mallard David McCallum. During Season 1, another member -- computer expert Tim McGee Sean Murray -- is added to the team. And, of course, there's Secret Service agent Caitlin Todd Sasha Alexander, who first appears in the suspenseful "Yankee White," helping Gibbs and the others investigate the mysterious death of a naval commander aboard Air Force One. In another excellent episode, "Bête Noire," a terrorist Rudolf Martin infiltrates the base and takes several hostages -- including Ducky and Caitlin. That same character returns in the superb season finale, "Reveille," this time plotting to assassinate the president.

    great deal

    thrilled to find the early episodes. Grreat for the latecomers who need to get up to date with the characters and the plots. NCIS never gets old.

    WARNING - This item isn't available from B&N right now!

    Just wanted to let prospective buyers know, I ordered this season and season two, two weeks ago, and it was supposed to arrive on December 6. Well, a few days after I ordered I noticed it still hadn't shipped, eventually, B&N sent me a notice on December 5th that there was an unexpected delay in the shipping, and that it would ship sometime this week. As of today, Dec. 8, I've gotten an email that basically said they have no idea when it's going to be shipped, sometime in the next "30 days." So, I'd advise ignoring the "this item usually ships within 24 hours" B&N is claiming for seasons one and two, just FYI.

    Engaging

    I recently discovered NCIS in reruns & wonder how I could have missed this show for 6 entire seasons. I was hooked immediately; & purchased all 6 seasons at once to begin from the beginning. The story lines are well written & unique & the cast is a marvelous fit. The intensity, severity of some episodes is always balanced in fine fashion by the comic relief, and quirkiness of the characters. I hope many more seasons follow. It is definetly a see it again series.

    This is a great beginning to the best series on TV

    in years. Great cast, writing, well worth purchasing all the DVD's, in addition to watching the series on TV.

    I love Gibbs and Crew

    I love watching all seasons of NCIS. I had missed the very first season and was happy to have made this purchase so I could get the complete back story of Gibbs and his "Rules" and how Kate and Tim came to be on the team.

    NCIS season 1

    NCIS season 1 is a great drama, humor and great chemistry between all the characters. They play off each other with such ease. You can tell they must of had a great time performing the opening season. I have been a great fan of NCIS for many years now. I retired from the Army. It is great to own and watch over and over again without commercials. Plus the chance to catch things I didn't catch the first time on television. Plus many thanks to Barnes & Nobel, to offer season 1 & 2 at such a great low price, when I ordered it. I never seen it cheaper in stores or anywhere online.

    Jethro Gibss, need I say more?

    Over the years plot lines have come and gone but the core of the story remains true to it's beginning. A fine ensemble cast, great writing and always entertaining.

    Rule #3: Don't believe what your told...

    This is the set to learn and double check the origins of the characters of NCIS and their coalescence into those friends we have grown to know, puzzle over, admire, desire, despise, revise, and/or love.

    The first few episodes are quite interesting as nuances of the "Founding Four" (Gibbs, Ducky, DiNozzo, and Abby) are discovered and established, absorbing the observant eye and steady hand of new agent Kate, soon followed by the perfectly executed mission of the creation of young "probie" McGee for creator Don Bellisario's stepson (Sometimes its nepotism, sometimes you're just brilliant).

    Extras aren't overwhelming in quantity, but spot on in value, especially the segments dedicated to the members and agency of the real NCIS.

    Dvd's are as to be expected, cases are not

    The six small tabs in the center you push on in order to release the DVD from the case were broken upon purchase. One would think that you are going to buy a cd from a major company like CBS and Paramount, the case would hold up. Although the store gave no issues on returning and exchanging for a new one, they did fail to call me when the replacement arrived at their store.

    I like Mark Harmon and I really like the TV show.

    I like these kinds of TV programs and there is a lot of interaction between the characters as they solve the crimes.

    Very specific

    Love NCIS...like the theme song, actors, and story lines. Story lines span from comedy to drama to mystery. I find it educational because I like learning about this kind of stuff...the "whodunit" part of it along with the medical and technological part. Trust it....????
