One factor you’ll seemingly discover is the title of the present is completely different. If you look intently through the opening credit, you’ll briefly see the phrase “Navy” pop up in your display earlier than the title “NCIS.” NCIS was referred to as Navy NCIS. The title was ultimately modified as a result of it was redundant. Navy Naval Criminal Investigative Service simply didn’t work.

The first episode had a George W. Bush lookalike

NCIS Season 1, Episode 1, opens with a shot of Air Force One, full with a George W. Bush lookalike. One of the naval officers on the flight is invited to have dinner with the president, however after his meal, the officer falls to the ground and begins foaming on the mouth.

boat. If you watch the present recurrently, then this boat is normally a
level of focus in Gibbs’ basement. The closing scene on this episode additionally ends

We get our first glimpse at Gibbs and his workforce. As typical, Tony
DiNozzo
is as much as his typical antics. At one level within the episode, Tony and Ducky
pose for photos in entrance of the presidential seal on Air Force One after they assume
Gibbs isn’t conscious of what they’re doing. However, Gibbs lets them know he heard
the digicam clicks and knew they have been posing for pictures.

Although Tony is Gibbs’ worker, he’s not afraid to log
complaints concerning the job. One of his complaints to Gibbs is that NCIS doesn’t have
a non-public jet. When he and Gibbs are referred to as down to analyze the Navy officer’s
loss of life, they need to fly business, and Tony isn’t too glad about it. Another
factor that that bothers him is when he’s going via the safety level, the
guard has no concept what NCIS is.   

The Palm Pilot is the gadget of selection

Agent Todd, who occurs to be working for the key service
on this episode, depends on her Palm Pilot to maintain observe of her day. She
mentions the gadget after Gibbs casually spouts off his list
of rules
.

Gibbs smiled extra

Gibbs is loads happier within the early NCIS episodes. In this episode, he’s smiling much more and appears lighter. In latest episodes of NCIS, Gibbs is somber and doesn’t smile practically as a lot as he used to. This will seemingly change throughout NCIS Season 18.

Executive Producer Frank Cardea advised TV Insider viewers will see a softer facet of Gibbs going ahead. We noticed a touch of his vulnerability throughout Season 17, Episode 20, the place he opened as much as McGee about his navy service and the influence his time in Kuwait had on him.
