will give the second episode a look but not looking good


AWFUL!! Might as well be Hawaii 5-O, BUT way worse. Bas Actors, Bad Cast, Bad Episodes!!!


I enjoy the other NCIS , FBI, CSI, etc., type shows. And I know spinoffs usually need a little time to find their own groove. But this one is just unbelievably bad. Casting, writing, acting, chemistry, it all sucks. It has all the earmarks of a porn-parody, but without the porn.


give it another go, first episode I thought a six. hope it gets better.


Cast is trying too hard, the research was lacking. Bad start.


I’m just seeing it for the gay


I want to like this but the writing is very bad. The dialog doesn't sound right in many of the situations. Odd familiarity.


Pretty lame and boring and then they had to add homosexual garbage. I'd give it zero if it was available.


I'll pass for now, maybe next season but I doubt it.


I must have missed the announcement of NCISJW:Woke such utter garbage, avoid at all costs


Misses the mark, characters aren’t very memorable. Shame, could’ve been really good but it’s just … not. I’ll give it another few episodes but it doesn’t look two season worthy. *Edit:* I'm 9 episodes in, it get's better but characters still aren't very memorable outside of Tennant. I'll finish this season but, undecided if I'd watch Season 02 if released.


I don't know why others say that the chemistry between the characters isn't good. You should probably give it another go. I really enjoy watching it.
