Happy Holidays!

On Behalf of Marrie, myself and our families we all wish you a HappyHanukkah, Merry Christmas, Boxing Day and Kwanzaa.  It's been an interesting year and I have met so many new friends that have the same love (obsession) for NCIS: LA.

As you can see I'm (FINALLY) posting Season 1 and I may even have it done by the time this is posted...okay at last some of it.

Season 2 will start in January!  Merrie and I will have to work on the calendar this week and I'll get it posted as soon as I can.

We would like to thank our Husbands for understanding and leaving comments as they watch the show with us, our kids for (kind of) understanding that every Tuesday they will hear "You have to go to bed NOW Mommy's show is on!!" and our readers for being so understanding and sharing our love for this show.

A Partner in Crime.....

Hello!  Welcome to the NCISLARewatch Blog!  After almost two months away we are back with the rest of Season 1!

So after finally realizing that I cannot do this by myself I have asked (begged) Merrie to help me out. (Merrie is on Twitter @merrily17)  She agreed and we’ve been working on it when we have the time.

When I started this I wanted it to be fun.  It was causing more work that I needed to do.  The point is to re-watch.  So this is what you all (or Y’all as we say in Texas) have to do.


Merrie and I will provide comments (with some comments from our husbands) thoughts, reactions, trivia and useless info, that we have.

Hope you enjoy.  I will start posting the rest of season 1 in the next couple of days.   There will be NO REWATCH on November 22 (Thanksgiving week).  Season 2 will start November 29th!!!  

Thanks again for your support and reading.


B. and Merrie

Week 20: BloodBrothers

Bloodbrothers (Originally aired March 2010)

Summary from

The investigation of a drive-by shooting has the NCIS team searching Los Angeles for the dead marine's younger brother who may be the next target and the one with the answers.

Ncislarewatch:  that was bloody

“Do I have to remind you of the numb chuck incident?”

Ncislarewatch:  what’s up with Eric’s hair? Ooo, yeah what is up?

Ak-47’s?  Good lord

Ncislarewatch's hubby:  Nate has a big wet spot on his shirt. (I didn’t see it myself but he’s closer to the TV)

Merrily17:  Nice people...shooting up houses and stores.

Merrily17:  Think it’s time to move out of that neighborhood!

Ncislarewatch:  now Eric’s hair is back to normal.

Ncislarewatch:  Ernie???

Merrily17:  Gordy??? some winner names in this episode!!!

Ncislarewatch:  I don’t sneak. LOL!

Ncislarewatch:  so in the first episode Sam mentions that they had been there for three months and the neighbors still didn’t know....I think they would notice people taking apart a humvee.

Season 3's first episode (Non-Spoiler Review!)



Loved it!  Even watched it again after it was over because I missed little things because I was on twitter.


Week 18: China Town

Chinatown (Originally aired March 2, 2010)

Summary from
The death of a lieutenant commander appears to be suicide but the NCIS team uncovers evidence corresponding to murder. Also, Operational Psychologist Nate Getz joins Special Agent Kensi Blye in the field. Written by CBS Publicity

Merrily17:  Drunk chicks hanging out of the limos moon roof, how cliche!
NCISLARewatch: Dead guy!

NCISLARewatch:Sam and Callen going all married couple - ‘You’re my partner not my mother.'
Merrily17:  Sam is like his Mom

Nate is let out.

NCISLARewatch:  “Don’t make me get the muzzle.” Kensi to Nate

NCISLARewatch'sHubby: Don’t run.

Merrily17:  Spiking the drink...nice guy.

NCISLARewatch: Callen - What do you know that we don’t. Eric - The words to every TV theme song

Merrily17: Five weeks to the day since Dom went missing.

NCISLARewatch:  Why would anyone throw a toilet seat off a bridge?

NCISLARewatch:  I do not wan to meet the owner of this shoe. That’s a lot of woman. Maybe.

You do things you break things you don’t dabble in things.
NCISLARewatch's Hubby: Oh woman crying what do? I do what do? What do I do?!?!

Merrily17:  A gay lieutenant commander. Think his mother knew?

Merrily17:  Blood spatter, we need ABBY!!!!

Merrily17:  Eric just said the name of the episode “Chinatown”

NCISLARewatch:  We’re created a monster.  Well that’s what happens when you let Nate out of his office.

NCISLARewatch:  admirable quality curiosity, unless of course you’re a cat! HETTY!!

Merrily17:  Suckers for a pretty face, and she turned out to be deadly!

NCISLARewatch:  Good God guys

NCISLARewatch: Every time I come here I feel like I’ve walked into a damn Hardy Boys novel.

NCISLARewatch:  Leave that to me.  Oh crap.  Hetty is going to make them talk.

Kerwood Ames an operational psychologist who became an agent and was killed with in the first two weeks on the job... or was it two days? Nate asks Hetty about becoming an agent

Merrily17:  Aw the bobblehead... :(  Xiu Lee mail order bride/Chinese assassin/Calvin’s handler

Okay Dad is a bad guy...

NCISLARewatch's Hubby: They had cheese graphics in season 1.

Merrily17:  So they are able to have a second child and go to America if they raise him to be a spy.
Nice parents!!

NCISLARewatch:  On 3... NO! LOL

NCISLARewatch:  and yet  by September Nate is going out on his own doing his secret squirrel thing.

Merrily17:  AH, yes... the Peoples Republic of None of your Damn Business!

NCISLARewatch:  That’s a very dangerous place!  He has a GUN! LOL!

NCISLARewatch:  I think it’s because he got too close to finding out Callen’s past (in seeing the book with agent hand writting) and Hetty sent him away so he wouldn’t figure it out. (But we won’t put that in because that will spoil the stuff for the end of the season.) 
Merrily17: True

SEASON 3 STARTS TONIGHT!!!! and the Tossing of the Tissue Box!

So tonight is the night!  Season 3 starts for NCIS: Los Angeles.  It was a LONG summer and it did help (a little) to start from the beginning of this series.

From watching shows like Alias, Lost, Buffy, Angel, and Grey's I'm used to thinking during the show that everything is fine and then BAM! Something comes out of nowhere, hits you, takes out your heart, stomps on it, puts it back in your chest, takes your wallet and runs away.  You are left feeling shocked, angry, frustrated, surprised, and crying. When I saw this quote back in August from Shane Brennen on I laughed.

“We [often] lure the audience in to a false sense of security, and then smack them on the side of the head.” Shane Brennan.

Yes.  We keep on getting the Gibbs 'head slap' and we keep coming back for more.  Sometimes my husband (who is now hooked on BOTH NCIS' shows) asks "WHY?"

I don't ask anymore I just here for the ride.

So tonight I my kids will be in bed by 7:45 (whether they want to or not), I will be sitting in my chair, wearing my Comic Con 2011 NCIS: LA Hetty "BUGGER" shirt that I won on Ebay and I will have the follow things by my chair: 
  • The netbook set up on twitter.
  • my phone (ON SILENT but I will be checking texts because a family friend is in the hospital and not doing that well).
 And the most important one
  •  a box of tissues to use or throw at the TV or both. 

The tossing of the tissue box started 2006. Chris O'Donnell was on the 8 episodes of Grey's I was THRILLED he was on.  I was on the McVet bandwagon (especially after McDreamy kept on having hissy fits because Meredith  actually went on with her life but that's another story).

Season 2 finale of Grey's it's Prom night and McVet is telling Meredith that for the first time in a long time "he has plans" and they are happy.  YEAH! and then she looks at McDreamy who is across the room.  Crap.  She leaves and McDreamy follows her.  They argue blah blah blah and they are doing it in the exam room.

Now I'm 10,000 years pregnant with my daughter (about 37 weeks).  I'm sitting on the couch in an embarrassing (to my husband) Moo moo  it's one of the few things that fit me by the end of that pregnancy, I feel and look like Jabba the Hutt, and I am SOBBING!

Me: Can you hand  me the tissues
Hubby: sure
I take a couple of them out and then THROW THE BOX AT THE TV! which is on the other side of the room.
Hubby: What the Hell!?!
Me (sobbing, screaming and pointing at the TV): She should NOT be doing this!  He called her a WHORE!
Hubby: I thought you wanted them together.
Me: NO!  I want her with Finn!  HE HAS PLANS!!
Hubby: (understands now) "You just want Chris O'Donnell on the show"
Me: "Yes" and I sob more.

Three years later NCIS LA started.

So tissues used or tissue boxed tossed I'm very excited about tonight and cannot wait what they have in store for us for season 3.

The Bank Job (Originally aired February 10, 2010)

Summary from
While opening a safety deposit box at a local bank, NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye is shot after three armed assailants enter and hold everyone in the building hostage. Written by CBS Publicity

Merrily17:  Hmmm, flirty Kensi, don’t see that much

NCISLARewatch:  He’s a little young for her.

Merrily17:  Jelly bracelets!  I had them once upon a time

NCISLARewatch:  Me too.

Merrily17:  Notice the muzak in the background when she gets shot.  

NCISLARewatch:  prized possessions.  For Pete’s sake.  LOL!!!

NCISLARewatch:  pack rat/hoarder ouch!  Nate you are asking to get hit you know that.

Merrily17:  Circe du Monaco in Monte Carlo still has traces of Hetty’s prized possession

Merrily17:  Raders front.  Chad Jeffcoat’s phone number was on a sim card.

NCISLARewatch:  Is this a Navy Seal thing? I’ll show you a Navy Seal thing

NCISLARewatch:  The King of Pop.  
NCISLARewatch:  Okay I’ve watched this episode about 5 times and I didn’t notice Callen saying “Just the one glove?” when Sam is putting the gloves on.
Merrily17:  Me either

NCISLARewatch:  Body in the recycling bin....EWWW!!!
Merrily17:  AHAHAHA! In my town the garbage men would take it out and leave on your front lawn cause it doesn’t have a recycling symbol on it!!!!
NCISLARewatch:  Back in the 80’s we would put the Christmas tree out for the garbagemen to take...Mom would put a 6 pack of beer for them to take the tree.  They always did!
Merrily17:  Nate plays the harmonica!

NCISLARewatch:  I love Titanic too.  Saw it in the theater 3 times.  You know COD was up for the role of Jack?
Merrily17:  I loved it at the time.  Saw it with my high school boyfriend, and no i didn’t know that!
NCISLARewatch:  Leo was also up for the role as Robin but when asked who looks like a superhero at a comic book convention they picked COD and not Leo.  I’m so glad.
Merrily17:  Me too cause I can’t stand Leo!
NCISLARewatch:  LOL!

Merrily17:  It would have been so much better if they played ‘My Heart Will Go On” in the background of that scene!!! ; p

NCISLARewatch:  Shoot out at the air hangar.


NCISLARewatch:  The MAILMAN?!  Should have known he would go POSTAL!
Both:  RENKO!!!

NCISLARewatch:  “You wouldn’t be here if I was” That’s true.  She also would have kicked his ass!
Merrily17:  I don’t know, I love her but Kensi usually ends up on her ass in fight.  She talks a good game but I could take her!

Kensi to Nate - I need to get this tail started and you need to get out of the office more!

NCISLARewatch:  Renko at the boat house.

NCISLARewatch:  A horse? what the hell did he do with a horse? never mind I don’t want to know

NCISLARewatch:  Hey it’s that guy from the bank!

NCISLARewatch:  Dead man walking at the airport hangar.

Merrily17:  That damn gun is taller than she is!

Merrily17:  He just said the title of the episode.

NCISLARewatch:  The recoil?  it’s a bitch.
NCISLARewatch:  I think that when Kensi goes to H5O it’s because of her Dad’s case.  
Merrily17:  definitely!!

NCISLARewatch:  Curtis is part of it...single and on 4 dating sites...Kensi get a safety deposit box.
And we fast forward to after she was shot.  Now you notice that you can hear Callen’s voice “You’ve went too far Johnny”

NCISLARewatch:  Bank manger gets the money to the account.

NCISLARewatch:  Bank employees didn’t know about the operation.  

Merrily17:  Jelly bracelets worked! good luck charms!

Merrily17:  Curtis and the bank manager...that’s a twist.

Merrily17:  Hetty has an antique jewelry collection! So awesome!
Merrily17:  1955 Porsche spider

NCISLARewatch:  Really Callen you really think that Sam would not take you to the game?!?

Merrily17:  Written by Speed Weed and our very own Dave Kalstein!

NCISLARewatch:  Hetty gets on to Sam about finding someone to help out the team while Dom is missing.   Sam doesn’t want a ‘temp’ because Dom is missing not dead.  Out of everyone he is taking this the hardest.

NCISLARewatch: Sam Hetty is right you do need to have the last word when you get annoyed.  

NCISLARewatch: Dead birds birds at the scene.  Don’t think this was about guns.

NCISLARewatch: Kensi must eat a lot of those breakfast burritos for Callen to know what she is eating

Merrily17:  I know right! But Kensi is a junk food addict

Merrily17: So the HWOBH should be classified as lethal weapons!

Merrily17: Thank you Steve... It’s Sam Ma’am.

NCISLARewatch:  Evil Martha Stewart! LOL!

NCISLARewatch:  Great...Dallas (From the “Breach” episode) is back.  

Merrily17:  I once knew an albino named Dallas! Oh and Dallas is Sallad spelled backwards! LOL ; )) just a little anecdote!

NCISLARewatch:  “you are an asset when you are not being a pain in the asset.”

NCISLARewatch: “For the record I walked away from this conversation thirty seconds ago”

NCISLARewatch: I’m just thankful that we didn’t see him ‘butt naked’

Merrily17: “if she puts on her rubber glove run!”

NCISLARewatch:  I love Hetty/Callen scenes!
“Sam doesn’t play well with others and he doesn’t share his toys.”  Callen
“Sam sees the glass as half full. I see it as half empty. That's why we make a great team. Kensi, on the other hand, just drinks right out of the bottle. Nate wonders why it has to be glass. And Eric usually breaks the glass by putting his feet up on the table. “  Callen
That is them exactly!!!  PERFECT!!!!

“Big guy doesn’t like to be nudged.....I’ll be gentle”

NCISLARewatch: Nate REALLY doesn’t want them to do this.

NCISLARewatch: “Which half?” LOL!

NCISLARewatch: Sam asks too many questions and makes the Dutchman very suspicious of him.

Merrily17: The Dutchman has really big ears!!! I wonder if he can get satellite feed???

NCISLARewatch: And Kensi kicks ass...

NCISLARewatch:  Callen get the vial!!!

Merrily17:  OH SHIT!!!!

NCISLARewatch:  Crap! Callen is cut and the bottle is cracked!

NCISLARewatch:  Whoa where did Sam come from.

Merrily17: “You know I hate needles!”

NCISLARewatch:  LOL!!! Sam saves Callen...again.  ;)

BOTH: $72,000 for FISH?!?!

NCISLARewatch:  “I know the difference between coy, carp and crap.”  Hetty  
I would have them tested too it I was being charged $72,000.00!  My question is did the Fish do a song and dance show for the shoppers because for something to be in MALL they should! *cheap girl getting off soapbox*  I love the look on horror Hetty’s face when Callen mentions that the tea used in nursing homes uses tea bags.

NCISLARewatch:  Hetty if he’s going to smother you with a pillow does is REALLY matter what type of pillow it is?

Merrily17: AHHH, Hetty’s biggest fear!  And she is allergic to feathers!!! Cause it  matters when you’re dead!!

Merrily17:  It’s so good of Sam to take care of Ester.

Merrily17:  Thank you Steve... It’s Sam Ma’am.


Merrily17:  Inara does that whooo wee really well!!! It’s so funny!

NCISLARewatch:  When Hubby heard that the first time he looked at me and said “What the hell was that?!”  I told him it was the “Whooo-Wee” sign
