Given that "NCIS: Red" didn't pan out, they were bound to try again.

Let's hope they get some better leads this time. Zero chemistry between Kim Raver and John Corbett in "Red" helped sink that puppy.

And when they do the inevitable and try to spin a show off "NCIS: LA," we'll be treated to the sight of a spinoff of a spinoff (NCIS:LA) of a spinoff (NCIS) of the original (JAG)...

They've gotta start coming up with fresh ideas. I only watched the first couple episodes of NCIS: LA before I deleted the season pass. Same goes for CSI Miami and CSI N.Y. I also dropped the original CSI, which has gone way past its expiration date, not to mention all of the Law and Order siblings. I never even knew that NCIS: Red existed (and apparently I'm not alone).

Speaking of JAG, has anyone else noticed that Catherine Bell has had some facial work done? She's appeared on a couple of other shows over the past season and it's quite obvious to me that she's seen a plastic surgeon.

Sorry for the off-topic comment.

The CSIs were much more similar than NCIS:LA is to the original NCIS---the two shows basically have nothing in common...

regarding Catherine Bell, yes I noticed. I blame her surgery for the single reason King & Maxwell was cancelled!!

Seriously makes me sad, she was naturally quite beautiful, now just NOT

Yeah, it has always bugged me that LA is even "NCIS"... they are not investigating naval crimes! They are basically the FBI or something.

Here's an idea for a spinoff. How about we take it one step further and see what happens after the investigation. We could see the Navy lawyers prosecute and defend the cases.

Probably because it was not picked up as a series and never aired.

No, they cancelled K&M just because I like it.

Sweet! EXTREMELY interested in the setting, living squarely in the middle of it and being very knowledgeable about my region's military and it's installations. Though the latter may well prove to completely turn me against this as well depending on what they end up doing with the show. (if it ever actually becomes a show.)

I love NCIS and watched NCIS la for like two seasons but if just had nothing in common with the original. I got tired of ll using Kung fu moves in every episode. Plus I hated so many of the changes they made from the pilot.

Hopefully this spin off will be more investigative and less action

I hadn't heard about King & Maxwell. That's surprising for a cable show. They usually run about two seasons before getting axed. I actually liked the show so I'm sad to see it go. I thought it was a perfect vehicle for Jon Tenney since The Closer ended.

I agree about the NCIS shows, but the CSI spinoffs got completely ridiculous. The idea of lab rats using guns and chasing down criminals is absolutely absurd, not to mention their completely bogus lab techniques. The only similarity between the NCIS shows is that they both have "NCIS" in the show title.

How about they do an NCIS show set about a carrier that covers all the crimes that happen in the fleet and in the ports they stop at. That would be more interesting.

But aren't they all just spinoffs from St. Elsewhere anyway?

I enjoy NCIS, but NCIS LA is really dumbed down. They interrogate the most ruthless criminal out there and yell at him/her during interrogation and they break down every time, tell them everything and the crime is solved and wrapped up. Bad acting and worse writing, it's a hit!

Don't be such a JAG-off, of course they would.

Although, to add additional intrigue one of the lawyers could be a former Navy pilot and there could be a hot female Marine lawyer and you would constantly wonder if they were going to hook up.

Make that a former Naval Aviator - a pilot is someone very different in the Navy.

With a backstory, at that.

I like the part
<snip>Mark Harmon is set to be one of the new show's executive producers, which may surprise anyone who remembers that he wasn't crazy about the idea of NCIS: Los Angeles four years ago. What convinced him that a spinoff wouldn't dilute the mother show?

Ah huh. Wave enough money in front of me and...

Yeah, they do, they start with NCIS, which means the same demographic is gonna tune in. That's all that matters to CBS, the ratings. Those who don't watch now are not likely to watch a new version. Those who DO watch are likely to at least try it.

Not necessarily.

One's a cop show starring a 62 (wow!)-year-old guy.

The other is an undercover/anti-terrorism show staring a 43 (wow!)-year-old guy.

So if we follow the trends there, this new one will have to be an academy show starring a 24 (wow!)-year-old guy?

My "wow!"s were because I would have guessed the actors to be 10 years younger...so it would have to be a high school show with someone who looks 14 but is really 24...

Funny that Zoe McLellan is going to be a regular on that show after co-starring on the last few years of JAG..

So I guess this week was the "pilot" for the new spinoff? Not sure I am on board with the cast.

I heard a joke that the show will have a new cast every couple of weeks as the agents get arrested for corruption.

Kind of a burn on the Louisiana political culture.
