IMDB Rating: 7.6/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 65% (Season 1 rating)
I came upon this episode by pure chance as it happened tone on TV, and I had somehow managed to miss this episode up til now without realising it. This is a great introduction to most of the cast who we know and love (with exception to Deeks who joins near the end of season 1).
Watching how it all began reminds you a lot of why this show is still going strong currently in its 9th season, despite the fact it was just a spin off of the original NCIS. I found myself just enraptured as I was taken through the story, and could immediately see some of the plot lines being started (such as who G. really is) that come into play literally seasons down the path.
