    How 'bout NCIS: Baywatch?

    Or maybe CSI- Eerie (IN) ?

    NCIS: International might be kinda neat. Stories that show the complexities of dealing with foreign law with deployed soldiers/overseas stations type of thing.

    How about... NTSF:SD:SUV:: (yes that last double-colon is intentional) on Adult Swim?

    :)

    But seriously... I know people complain about NCIS: LA... but I like it. I often like it better than NCIS actually after 10 years of NCIS... though I still like that show.

    I'm not sure I can find time to watch another NCIS show, though, unless some other stuff goes off the air. It is all I can do to keep up with watching all the stuff I watch now!

    while I'm just the opposite. Never liked NCIS, but really enjoy NCIS:LA

    Is there even a Navy base in LA?

    Not every spinoff works, even at CBS. Remember "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior" starring Forest Whitaker and Janeane Garofalo, with Kirsten Vangsness providing the tech support. How could it miss with this description: "An elite group of profilers analyze the nation's most dangerous criminal minds in an effort to anticipate their next moves before they strike again."

    And speaking of "JAG," would one have expected to see David James Elliott, John M. Jackson, and Patrick Labyorteaux essentially fall off the prime time TV series radar, much less Catherine Bell disappearing into Lifetime Network shows?

    I'm skeptical, but CBS is usually good a putting together ensemble casts.

    Oops ... the one I was thinking of apparently closed.

    Then again, based on the cases they investigate, NCIS: Los Angeles is not "base security". The original NCIS seems to investigate any crime involving a member or former member of the Navy.

    BTW, here is a list of bases:

    I'm looking forward to NCIS: Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane based in Indiana. :lol:


    As far as the real show goes ... it looks like "Granger" will be leaving LA and be part of the new show.

    I read somewhere he's going to do both. I'll have to try and find it, but he just got upgraded to a series regular on NCIS:LA.

    Ahh memories. . . Seems a lot of the military holdings in the area are no more. Growing up there in the 50s and 60s there was a lot of shipyards, and naval moorages around Terminal Island and near all the airplane manufacturers.

    I remember vividly as a two year old being scared out of my mind by fighter jets just airborne from Los Alamitos NAS hitting the sound barrier while still pretty close to the ground (and house).

    I included the link to the bridge cause as a kid it was so cool to ride across.

    Here is another story on the new show:
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/ncis-la-spinoff-gillian-alexy-419998

    They are referring to the show as NCIS: Red.

    It would be possible for Granger to be on both ... and if he left NCIS:LA they would need to replace his "apparently clueless upper management" character. Perhaps they gave him too much intelligence on NCIS:LA? But as a director who drops in to keep the team "legal" he could do both.

    On NCIS:LA you have the two main agents ... seasoned professionals who could get work as mercenaries, two rookies who are gaining experience, two techies who support from the home office, the brains that keeps them all in line, and the apparently clueless upper management that they all have to work around.

    Somehow I suspect Red will follow that formula.

    There was a hint in this past week's episode that Nell may become an agent some day. Perhaps she will get to do some more field work.

    Amazing. We cut that off in the first season. Got sick of hearing what's his name saying "I'm a Seal". Ever see him swim? :lol:

    Yup, NCIS is a spinoff of JAG. How NCIS:LA can be called a spinoff aside from throwing in "NCIS" in the title is beyond me.

    And a huge gap it is! Closest thing to a graphic novel I've ever seen on TV. I still can't believe it got canceled. Laughed so much at it, it could have, should have, been called a comedy.

    Why they had to dress up Whitaker like a biker is beyond me. He's a fine actor and really deserved better. Garofalo was just poor casting. Not that Dharma's husband on Criminal Minds (a show I really enjoy) is "choice casting".

    Oops, must have looked before they closed it. Thinking back (not something I do well), I might have been looking for the building they worked in. I think I found that.

    The first article in the thread explained the spin off chain quite well.

    "NCIS: Red" (if the name sticks) will be a spin off of NCIS: LA with the pilot episode for Red airing as an episode of NCIS: LA.

    NCIS: LA had it's characters introduced in a two hour episode of NCIS.

    NCIS was introduced in a two part episode of JAG.
