NCIS: Los Angeles is a drama about the high stakes world of the Office of Special Projects (OSP), a division of NCIS that is charged with apprehending dangerous and elusive criminals that pose a threat to the nation's security. By assuming false identities and utilizing the most advanced technology, this team of highly trained agents goes deep undercover, putting their lives on the line in the field to bring down their targets. Special Agent "G" Callen is a chameleon who transforms himself into whomever he needs to be to infiltrate the criminal underworld. His partner is Special Agent Sam Hanna, a former U.S. Navy SEAL who has seen action in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and a surveillance expert who uses state of the art monitoring equipment to look out for those in the field and feed them crucial information. Assisting the team is Special Agent Kensi Blye, the exceptionally bright daughter of a slain Marine who lives for the adrenalin rush that comes with undercover work; Operational Psychologist Nate Getz, adept at getting into anybody's head, profiling the target and monitoring agents' states of mind before, during and after missions; Dominic Vail, the most recent addition to the team, is highly qualified but lacking in practical experience and Henrietta "Hetty" Lange who oversees the 'backroom' support staff tasked with providing everything from micro-surveillance cameras to cars for the team. Armed with the latest in high tech gear and sent regularly into life-threatening situations, this tight-knit unit relies on each other to do what is necessary to protect national interests.
You don't have to be an "NCIS" fan to watch its spin-off, "NCIS: Los Angeles,"...Although much is familiar -- is it me or has the whole team-shrink-insta-diagnosis gotten old? -- that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The crime is intriguing and multifaceted, its resolution requiring a nice balance of street smarts and lots of gunfire. But as with the original "NCIS," the emphasis is on the characters of the team. O'Donnell and Cool J are the big draws of the spinoff, and they are promising leads, both displaying the necessary shape-shifting tendencies. O'Donnell especially can easily go from steely-eyed to sympathetic and back again, which creates the sort of shattered toughness that keeps viewers, particularly women, coming back for more. More important, the two have enough chemistry between them that the writers don't have to burden the characters with too much Felix/Oscar or good cop/bad cop nonsense.--Mary McNamara, L.A.
