I stumbled upon NCIS showing on FX recently and watched a few episodes. I knew of the show only through crossover fanfic, with BtVS and with Stargate SG-1, and was interested in finding out what it was like in its own right and how the characters compare with their portrayals in fanfic.

I was rather surprised. Gibbs was much taller and thinner than I had pictured him, and much more of an officer-class type, whereas McGee was much plumper and dimmer. I hadn’t expected Caitlin to be so beautiful and never in a thousand years would I have guessed that Ducky was played by David McCallum.

Most of all, however, I was surprised by how bad the show is at the science aspect and the firearms. It was Season 1, and therefore pre-dated Mythbusters, and that can be their only excuse. I won’t be watching it regularly – not even for Abby.
