I have loved the show since episode 1. The characters, the interactions, the backstory everything. All shows and movies take a lot of dramatic license with the truth, we know that so how does this measure up?

Walmart has the seasons 1-8 for $12.95 a pop or 2 seasons for $19.95 so I've been indulging myself so as not to solely rely on the USA network full time for my fix.

Well......
NCIS - fake - period. According to the premise of that show...the entire Navy and Marine Corps would be sitting at the bottom of Davy Jones Locker if it weren't for the heroic actions of NCIS.

As for jurisdiction - according to what I understand NCIS has world-wide jurisdiction, without exception. Most of that has to do with the fact (a) they are a civilian organization and (b) their charter. An NCIS investigation / agent can go where the leads take them - pending funding, etc.

It's ok to watch - but it really gets rather boring when NCIS agents on the show are the only ones that know anything and can do anything - especially when an ex-Marine supposedly knows more about a ship than the C.O. does.

PO1 Larry Castle You're right, it's just a show and I like Mark Harmon. As for NCIS - in my book the jury is still out. They're great when it comes to brow beating sailors though. I have to give them a "meh" grade - mostly cuz the only times I ever saw them get out of their rack was when the value of anything lost or stolen was greater than $100k. If it wasn't that high in value - they had to have special dispensation to even turn over and fart - even then they'd complain cuz someone turned down the a/c too low (which I know absolutely NOTHING about!, in spite of the fact I had the keys to the stateroom, the only guy onboard that had enough knowledge to remove the solenoid valve guts that would stop the flow of chill water and the only opportunity to do so - pure circumstantial evidence). We won't discuss short-sheeting or rubbing insulation on interior equipment and stuff in their lockers (that they used common locks on) .... nooooo comment.

I agree with the authenticity comment above but love the honesty and integrity while trying to fight terrorism. And, the LA version has a lot of attention on Muslim extremists......
