Now that Gibbs’s family is out of immediate danger, there’s room for more laughs at NCIS HQ.So it’s a less melodramatic episode than last week’s series opener, but no less entertaining.

The new interns are the butt of all jokes, as the team teach the youngsters their impatient and comically unforgiving ways, passed on to them in turn by Gibbs (Mark Harmon). DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) is suspicious. Gibbs has never allowed interns in before:
“He never does anything without a reason,” says DiNozzo with narrowed eyes. Whatever that reason is, Gibbs is too busy with a kidnap case today to reveal it.

About this programme

2/24. The team tries to locate a kidnapped girl but has to contend with her grandfather, a former member of a disbanded special forces unit. The agents discover he has been secretly negotiating with the kidnapper, who was once in his undercover team and has decided to kill off his old colleagues in a bid to atone for their actions. Meanwhile, Abby is forced to work with an intern, and makes him follow her idiosyncratic rules. Crime drama, starring Mark Harmon and Pauley Perrette.
