I don’t watch much adult TV, maybe 5-6 shows a week. With three kids in the house, and a wife, the TV is usually occupied with kids shows or wife shows, but we do record a few shows which the wife and I watch together regularly. Up until last night, one of those shows was NCIS. My wife and I have been watching this show consistently for about 10 years now. I liked the characters, I enjoyed the stories, even though the cop work done in the show has always been a ridiculous stretch, but it is a TV show and I know to expect that from TV.
However, as of late, they have been pissing me off on a fairly regular basis. Seems every episode lately features one or more of the following: 1) inept local law enforcement, 2) guns being evil and easily available or 3) dirty local law enforcement. It is so blatant that it is not just me picking up on it, but my wife has even groaned several times when the subject came up in the show.
The most recent episode, S13.E22 Homefront, the one we watched last night, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Not only was the episode’s main bad guy another local uniformed cop, but the episode featured a cameo appearance by none other than the cop hater in chief’s wife, Michelle Obama.
Look, I get it, you’ve been on the air for 13 seasons. It gets hard coming up with new stories for every episode. Honestly, I don’t know how the writers do it. I even get jumping on the gun control bandwagon. Hell, you are Hollywood. Pushing lefty causes is what you do. BUT when you consistently bash local law enforcement, and then bring the most divisive, cop hating president’s wife on the show, you’ve gone to far.
NCIS, I’m done with you! I will never watch another episode, and I encourage everyone who supports law enforcement to do the same.
