I had to double check it but apparently NCIS is television’s top rated scripted drama. I couldn’t believe it either as I know no one who watches this show. NCIS or the Naval Crime Investigation Service is headed by Special Agent Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon) and it investigates cases with Navy or Marine ties. This invariably leads to them working on cases that deal with murder, terrorism, espionage or any other hi jinx on the high seas. Besides some action and drama, twists and turns you also get some humour which is welcomed watching all the death and destruction that goes on here.
