I love this show. How is it we don't have a discussion thread for it?

Abby (then Ducky, then Gibbs) is my fav character and I got so excited when I found this...



NCIS' Goth Girl Teases Secrets Galore

by Joseph Hudak


Pauley Perrette, NCIS

As the hip forensic specialist Abby Sciuto on CBS' NCIS (Tuesdays at 8 pm/ET), Pauley Perrette lends an air of edginess to the sometimes-staid HQ. The charmingly quirky actress and aspiring documentarian chatted with us about Abby's road to forensic fame.

TV Guide: So what's your character's real appeal?

Pauley Perrette: I think part of it is that she's supersmart. I want to be her when I grow up. She's certainly not your typical one-dimensional anything: scientist, alternative person or genius. She's like the girl next door

Has NCIS' Gibbs Met His Match in Susanna Thompson?

by Michael Davis


NCIS' Mark Harmon, Susanna Thompson

On Nov. 7 (postponed from its previously announced airdate of Oct. 24), Susanna Thompson (Once and Again, The Book of Daniel) pops up on CBS' NCIS (Tuesdays at 8 pm/ET) as an Army investigator who catches the attention (or is that a-tenn-shun?) of special agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). The versatile actress recently took a call from TV Guide to discuss what may blossom into a full-fledged love affair for Harmon's oft-taciturn, coffee-addicted character.

TV Guide: Cranky-pants Gibbs in love? Will this be the start of something big?

Susanna Thompson: I'm not sure where they'll take it, or how far they'll take it, but certainly they'll take it a couple steps further. I love the dynamic between the two of them. They don't give each other any slack.

TV Guide: How hot does it get?

Thompson: There's interest in the other on a suppressed level, or a hidden level, right now, because they're doing their job. But to get that out of the way, she's had to call him on some of his stuff, to say, "Look, you're going to have to trust me. If you haven't trusted other people before, you're going to have to trust me because we need to work on this."

TV Guide: As an actress, how were you able to communicate that kind of interest in him while also maintaining the seriousness of purpose of a lieutenant colonel?

Thompson: A lot is conveyed through the eyes and conveyed through humor. I think if there is something being felt and thought and the camera's there to pick it up, it'll pick it up. And so whatever is being felt, on so many different levels, it's seen. And it's not hard to do that with Mark Harmon.

TV Guide: NCIS is known to have a loose and fun set, with a cast that's fast on its feet.

Thompson: That crew has worked with each other since JAG. They like working with each other and they're respected for what they do, so it was a great environment to step into. They know how to take care of problems really fast, and the actors are just crack-ups. They're always sort of playing jokes on each other. Michael Weatherly and Cote de Pablo were doing this whole routine about what the show would be like in its ninth season, just spoofing the show. Those two, boy, when you get them started.... For me, I had to actually remove myself from it, but not all the time. I kept gravitating over towards their military advisor, this really strong ex-Marine. He'd come over and just very subtlety, very gently

NCIS Enlists Scarecrow and Mrs. King's Bruce Boxleitner

Bruce Boxleitner (Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Babylon 5) will guest-star on NCIS during fall sweeps, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

Boxleitner will play Vice Admiral C. Clifford Chase, a high-ranking Navy official who turns to Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the rest of the NCIS team when his friend is killed. Chase believes the motive behind the murder could have national security implications.

Best known for his roles as operative Lee Stetson on Scarecrow and John J. Sheridan on Babylon 5, Boxleitner, 60, has also appeared on such series as How the West Was Won, Bring 'Em Back Alive, Chuck, Cold Case and Heroes. He also starred as the title character in Tron, a role he is set to reprise in December's Tron: Legacy.

NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS. Boxleitner's episode, "Broken Arrow," is scheduled to air Nov. 9.
