But it's the presence of Linda Hunt that elevates this show. As opposed to other reviewers who are sadly so limited they can only conceive of Linda Hunt as an object of derision, I tune in specifically to see her. Deeks' personality is such that he's a great foil for the distrustful Kensi, he can wear her down and teach her intimacy. Without her we wouldn't care for Callen or Hanna as it's her feelings about them that motivate us. Actually the two information analysts add to Hetty's character in a remarkable way. 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. That's what makes it tolerable.
There's also the occasional twist. We get a taste of the supporting characters but not enough obviously to let us know what makes them act the way they do. Keep in mind, Shane Brennan is running both shows and he has yet to disappoint me on the original. Nothing on this show will grab you--it just doesn't have any pull. Did she leave after Calen got shot? However, after settling down and focusing on the episodes, mainly the one where Dom gets kidnapped, I felt like they've hit their stride. Kensi and Deeks disguise as a newlywed couple, and Nell does so as a maid; Kensi rescues Nell from a tight spot. The nerds suck, especially when you consider Abby from the original show.
I've seen enough shallow cookie cutter actors with impossibly white teeth and ripped abs. I have never in my life ever wished failure on anyone or anything and I don't feel I need to now. In the the pilot is about a Navy Officer whose gunned down by people who are working for the drug cartel. Daniela Ruah does Kensi justice in all the right places.

You can believe his background as a former U. The episodes so far, she is not even mentioned. Now Deeks is simply part of 'Kensi and Deeks the partnership' and I no longer wish for his sudden irreversible death. I'm sure the caterers are tops! I'm looking forward to Season 6! 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 have to admit I hated Marty Deeks, though I wasn't sad to see the back of Nate Getz either. I try to stay positive wherever possible but i'm afraid, for me, there is no redemption.
I believe this is key to the popularity of the show as anything that shakes up the typical procedural format is looked upon favorably by television audiences. Sorry to be so negative, but that's how it is. At first, Kensi Blye was just the token female for me. The original is such a great show, one I wait every week for. Their technique will be different. Now I want to watch stories about people who are unique and unusual and earthy and human. A funny thing happened along our journey with Hetty…Callen and Hanna won us over.
Click is not liable for any copyrighted, legality or any other aspect of the linked sites mentioned. Anyone sent to take her place is seen as our enemy and we long to see them eliminated. She's a rich, interesting actor and her character here has a great backstory. As soon as they do I feel like it's the death keel of the show. 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. This one won't last the season, if they don't make sweeping changes, like losing the cast, firing the writers, and getting someone who can direct.
They've slowly gotten some chemistry. I absolutely do not understand what this show is trying to convey to us. 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. . 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. We wait for the little sounds bits from this diminutive character squirreling them away like precious nuts.
As we watched we found their characters balanced each other out nicely as well. They like each other, they even love each other as partners do, but as of now I like that they are motivated for each others' well being and otherwise keeping it on a professional level. There are a couple of twists to make the outcome not seem so obvious. The main chief, Hetty, is an old woman who seems to treat her agents like their kids. While I do think this might have been better set in San Diego, I still like the premise.
If we needed another mindless cop show, this would be perfect! Her development really kept you watching during the first couple years of the show as you could see her character come into her personality. 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. I was a little shocked when they added Nell as I thought Eric did a fine job without her but Hetty really made the addition work. We also get a few characters making cameos for the show like Director Vance. Sure this team could be managed by yet another grizzled actor playing a tough as nails former Navy Seal type, whose life has been touched by tragedy because his wife died of breast cancer or his little girl choked on a marble. She was hot, badass and skillful with guns…what's not to like? Other than those minor changes, it doesn't need much. So I watched the first episode and was happy it didn't bore me to sleep.
