Like SEAL Team, I’m a big fan of the NCIS franchise, and I was pleased when the newest, NCIS: Hawai’i premiered last season. Vanessa Lachey stars as Jane Tennant, the first female Special Agent in charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor, who has thrived and risen through the ranks by equal parts confidence and strategy in a system that has pushed back on her every step of the way. Her team is a skilled mix of mainland transplants and includes field agents Kai Holman (Alex Tarrant), Jesse Boone (Noah Mills), and Lucy Tara (Yasmine Al-Bustami), as well as tech specialist Ernie Malik (Jason Antoon). Together, they balance duty to family and country, while investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security, and the mysteries of the sun-drenched island paradise itself. FBI Agent Kate Whistler (Tori Anderson) and Jane’s son Alex (Kian Talan) also play prominently throughout the season.
The DVD includes both parts of a special crossover, beginning with “Starting Over” in NCIS and concluding with “T’N’T” in NCIS: Hawai’i, where guest stars Wilmer Valderrama and Katrina Law pay a visit to Hawai’i.
The action-packed DVD includes all 22 episodes, a gag reel (yay!), deleted/extended scenes, and 4 featurettes.
Jump with me to see all about the featurettes. Continue reading
