On the plus side, the overabundance of technology I noted in "Legend" has been greatly minimized. There are still fancy computers which can do impossible things present, but the technology in the premiere takes a backseat to the characters, something that wasn't the case in "Legend."
NCIS: Los Angeles might be a massive success for the network – they do procedural crime shows better than anyone and have a great track record in recent years with them – but that doesn't necessarily make it a good show. The problem is simply that NCIS: LA appears to be yet another in a long line of such dramas on the network and with little to differentiate it from them. Yes, this may be the only show CBS has that is located in Los Angeles and features members of the NCIS Office of Special Projects who like to go undercover at the drop of a hat, but that's not really enough.
Me, I'm going to stick with Jethro Gibbs and company this fall rather than hopping over to LA.
NCIS: Los Angeles premieres September 22 at 9:00pm on CBS.
