    “NCIS” was great. I’m glad to see that the show has managed to stay strong despite Cote de Pablo’s absence. But then again, the show has a large following that would probably only quit watching if Mark Harmon left.
    Can’t wait for the introduction of the Bishop character next week. Hope she’s a good character.

    “NCIS: Los Angeles” was also good. Something about the show feels different this season, in a good way. I just can’t figure out what it is.

    “Person of Interest” was great. Intense and intriguing.
    I really hope Fusco’s not getting the axe, but it seems that may be what’s going to happen.
