Netflix Crime Shows: NCIS

Release Year: 2004

Creator by Donald P. Bellisario, Don McGill

Starring Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, David McCallum

NCIS has been on CBS for more than a decade and remains as popular today as it was when it first premiered. The Naval Criminal Investigation Services is led by former Marine Leroy Jethro (Harmon) who relies on his gut instincts to help him solve cases and deliver justice.

He is a fine interrogator and investigator too, so it’s not like he’s flying on the seat of his pants, but he is an emotional leader. His team sees former Baltimore homicide detective turned Senior Field Agent Tony DiNozzo (Weatherly) as his second in command and first to keep the rest of the agents loose with his sense of humor and demeanor.

There are 15 seasons of NCIS available to stream on Netflix. If you want to watch a long procedural to keep you busy for a few weeks or months, this is the show for you.
