NCIS: The Thirteenth Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 8/24/16

This is still a great show, even after 13 seasons! It's amazing that they're still going strong in the ratings and in the story.  Of course, it's the characters that have always been the best thing about the show.

I used to watch it every week, but I just fell behind and gave up on it and some other shows so that I could focus on the shows I like the most (scifi, fantasy and comic book shows). However, it's still a very entertaining show, and I'm happy to receive this set.

There are big cast changes in this season! Tony leaves, and someone else is killed off. Gibbs struggles at the beginning of the year due to being shot in last season's finale. It'll be interesting to see how they deal with Tony's leaving next year because it's sure to fill a big void. I wonder if any female fans wil stop watching because of that? I mean, Mark Harmon is no longer as handsome as he was once, and Sean Murray was never all that cute to begin with (Frankly, after losing weight, he now looks TOO thin). No offense to the actors, but Michael Weston (Tony) was always the best part of the show.

The DVD set is definitely worth having. You don't have to have the other seasons to know what's going on. They do a good job of catching you up. There are many great extras and features on the set! They do a great job of celebrating their 300th episode and talking about how amazing it is that they're still around and so popular. I got a kick out of the Crossin Over feature, where they keep calling NCIS "The Mother Ship."

The only thing I don't like is the navigation on the DVD. I like it better when they have a "play all" menu choice for the episodes. This one has about 4 or 5 episodes per disk and you have to click on each one to watch it. If you fast forward until the end of the episode, it goes back to the episode menu, rather than playing the next episode. That's annoying. Also, some of the special features are tied to an episode, so you can't find them from the main menu. You have to choose that episode from the episode menu and then you'll see the feature.

Check it out, though, and I know you'll enjoy the stories!
