15.52 million viewers

What it is: A CBS procedural about an agency tasked with investigating crimes connected to the Navy and Marine Corps. In this episode, they delve into a killing at a high school reunion.

Don’t have a whole lot to say about NCIS generally that I didn’t say in my first post about it. I will note that this episode’s cold open–in which a now-adult former nerd gets harassed by a now-adult former bully, then beats the shit out of the bully, reveals that he’s now in the Special Forces, and flashes a nearby woman a flirtatious wink–neatly encapsulates mainstream pop culture’s obsession with juvenile social roles and sexualized glorification of violence. Also apparently Wilmer Valderrama is on this show now.
