Guess the show runners "fixed" the program. It seems to me that they looked at the 3 NCIS versions, picked the one w the worst ratings, NCIS LA and came up with the brilliant idea of making the other two resemble it. They've got rid of strong character driven plots by a tight group of characters. Instead we have many superfluous characters and limited screen time for the characters that actually drew us to the shows. The camera work seems different as well - tho' I could be wrong. Seems like a lot more choppy quick cuts. The writing also seems weaker. Dialogue often seems like it is interchangeable among characters. No unique voice for each character.
Other than that tho' great job, show runners.
