Did she leave after Calen got shot? Their technique will be different. That's what makes it tolerable. They've got crimes they're trying to solve. You'll also notice differences in the way of how the organization deals with cases. The audience enjoys watching them no matter the current difficulties, whether it's just a threat to national security or literally saving the world. You can believe his background as a former U. Also, still mourning the death of his wife and living in a trailer on the beach, Sam is adamant that Callen find a new partner.
I don't know why Hollywood gets it so wrong, so often, but I suspect it has something to do with the herd instinct--when one person wanders down a certain path, everyone else follows along, just to be sure they aren't missing something they previously overlooked! This show is well cast and the writing is solid. Pulling in Oscar winner Linda Hunt to play Hetty was a masterstroke. How can no one have mentioned that? Especially as Terry O'Quinn was the connection point, as her father being a friend of his makes total sense. It would be a decent show if it was a civilian agency using ultra sophisticated equipment, similar to Tom Clancy's Deep Black books. And having Director Vance and Abby make short crossovers is excellent. As soon as they do I feel like it's the death keel of the show. As we watched we found their characters balanced each other out nicely as well.
In the the pilot is about a Navy Officer whose gunned down by people who are working for the drug cartel. True it has no gibbs, tony or elf lord, but the characters are growing on me, and Linda Hunt who plays the boss is a good actress and quite amusing in her role. Other than those minor changes, it doesn't need much. There's something special about the Hetty character - she is the center of the show in a unique way. They play off of each other so well.
She was hot, badass and skillful with guns…what's not to like? In my opinion it was smart to link her to the Hawaii Five-O crossover as of all the characters we knew the least about her and it immediately added depth to her character. It looks like they work in some sort of dressing room or boutique which caters to wannabees from Universal or somewhere. I'd rather have Linda Hunt because she is a true original. I have to disagree with other reviewers about Adam Jamal Craig and Daniela Ruah. Daniela Ruah does Kensi justice in all the right places. The other characters are strong and well played, also essential but they are a team because Hetty centers them. The episodes so far, she is not even mentioned.
Why a clandestine type building that is an embarrassment to a government agency, a head of department that is out of a book of fiction, a buff agent who I think was hired just to show off his body. There's also the occasional twist. We know this is only fiction but it's great fiction. He doesn't know much about who he or his parents are, what his first name is beyond G or why people tend to try to kill him. Without her we wouldn't care for Callen or Hanna as it's her feelings about them that motivate us. At first, Kensi Blye was just the token female for me. They're in good hands and hopefully, they'll get even better.
However, there is more than just the casual element. While I do think this might have been better set in San Diego, I still like the premise. Nothing on this show will grab you--it just doesn't have any pull. So I watched the first episode and was happy it didn't bore me to sleep. If we needed another mindless cop show, this would be perfect! I have never in my life ever wished failure on anyone or anything and I don't feel I need to now.
I would love if someone has some insight into this one. The main chief, Hetty, is an old woman who seems to treat her agents like their kids. It's also repetitive and non-threatening…since when has Hetty, Callen, Hanna, Kensi or Deeks not come through? It was a great starting point because until we got to know more about this duo it's really all we had to go on. I think this spin-off has some potential. Did I miss an explanation of what happened to her? Hanna and Callen have a buddy buddy relationship in the tradition of Dinozzo and McGee.
You as a viewer aren't always sure where the story will take you as far as the personal stories are concerned. She hasn't been in the show for a bit and I know that I, and many others I've spoken to, just don't find the show as compelling without Hetty. I'm sure the caterers are tops! Chris O'Donnell has grown up and yet, there is still that juvenile offender on the loose quality to him. Have we stooped so low that the people producing this unrealistic piece of trash think we will watch anything. She's a rich, interesting actor and her character here has a great backstory. In the season preview, my impression was she was the boss. Maybe this will change over time.
It's her knowledge of Callen and her willingness to go after his enemies that carried us through procedural plot. . Hetty seems a bit more understanding. I'm looking forward to Season 6! I thinks this is so because it's about embodying the type of man you would imagine a chameleon would be rather than actively being a quick-change artist. Actually the two information analysts add to Hetty's character in a remarkable way.
I especially enjoyed her recent character arc while she dealt with her father's past and his death, working on her trust issues. Callen still hasn't gotten his moment of justice for the people that shot him. The nerds suck, especially when you consider Abby from the original show. I love that there is a hidden past for Callen, much in the way that Gibbs's bast was hidden for the first three years. I'd rather watch Gunsmoke or Adam 12 reruns. Callen is really the central character, before or after Hetty, depending how you look at it, whoever you love more. A funny thing happened along our journey with Hetty…Callen and Hanna won us over.
