My Love for NCIS

I love watching TV shows. I watch a lot of shows, both new and old but there is one show (or family of shows really) that I have been loyal to from the start: NCIS.

I can still remember when NCIS was introduced through an episode of JAG in the early 2000s. From there to the pilot, I have been a fan of the show. I've seen agents (and bad guys) come and go but I've still been loyal to the original NCIS.

When the spinoffs NCIS Los Angeles and NCIS New Orleans came out I decided to watch and give it a try. I've been a loyal viewer of both shows ever since (although I have to admit that I favor NCIS New Orleans more than LA).

Out of all three, the original is still my favorite. I've loved the characters they've had on the show -- the ones who have been there from the start, the ones who have left, and the new people who have become a part of the team.

My favorite character, of course, is Gibbs (Mark Harmon), the leader of the team. Second to him, it would have to be Abby (Pauly Perrette). The combination of these two tugs at my heartstrings every time they're in a scene together. They seem to have this father-daughter relationship that I find really sweet, especially when Gibbs comes into Abby's lab with a huge Caf-Pow drink and when he kisses her forehead when she's done a good job. I just love it!

Of course, as a fan of the show, I can't post about NCIS without mentioning Gibbs' "Rules." It's been mentioned in the show for as long as I can remember, I can't even keep count of how many there are already!

While some rules are more for investigators, there are several rules that I think people can also apply in real life. Time for some of Gibbs' rules people!

#3 Don't believe what you're told. Double-check. - In this age of fake news and whatnot, I think that this is an important rule to keep in mind!!!

#8 Never take anything for granted. - We are always in a rush with our lives, we tend to forget what matters, I think we can use this rule to remind us that there are things that we can't rush or set aside.

#15 Always work as a team - In a world that often emphasizes "self," we need to be more the type of person who works with others and isn't out doing things just for themselves.

#28 If you need help, ask! - Self-explanatory

#36 If it feels like you're being played, you probably are. - Trust your gut, it is almost always right.

#39 There is no such thing as coincidence. - Again, usually, this is true.

#45 Clean up your messes. - Take responsibility for your actions. Be the adult.

#51 Sometimes - you're wrong - Again, be the adult, we can't always be right and we need to be able to admit to that.

Is anyone reading this a fan of NCIS shows? Please let me know in the comments if you are!
