I saw this quite some time ago on dinozzoitis's journal and finally got around to doing it.

Day #01 – Favourite season

Season Two, definitely.

It was a stellar season, IMO, with no really awful episode. To my mind it was the best season as well, not just my favourite. It was 'old school NCIS' at its best.

The team were very much a team; there were some fantastic story-lines, naval story-lines when they actually remembered what the 'N' stood for - bring back the dead Petty Officers any day. Also, everyone seemed to really care about one another; the kids had great banter without nastiness and the focus was very much on the cases and team interaction rather than getting bogged down by too much personal stuff.

As well as those things, the balance of screen time was good and certain people didn't lose out. It also had my favourite director - Tom Morrow, oh, how I wish he'd come back. And, if all that wasn't enough, it was extremely Gibbs/Ducky heavy.

It also includes three of my top five episodes: 'Lt. Jane Doe', 'The Meat Puzzle' and 'Call Of Silence'.

It's my desert island season, the one that I'd keep if I could only keep one season.
