The new season of NCIS: Los Angeles could well be the best ever of a series that has mesmerised viewers for five years
NCIS: Los Angeles has always captivated and enthralled audiences, and the upcoming fifth season is set to be explosive from the very first minute.
For the uninitiated, the NCIS: Los Angeles division is responsible for protecting the nation from some of the most dangerious criminals and terrorists in the world. Specialising in undercover and covert operations, and aided by state-of-the-art technology, its highly-trained agents risk life and limb to bring down threats to national security.
Agonising Screams… then Agonising Wait
NCIS: Los Angeles Season 4 ended with the fans at the edges of their seats. Isaak Sidorov, the Russian arms dealer and antagonist was firmly in control as NCIS agents Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) and Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) were left screaming in pain, enduring torture.
As the tension reached its peak, the episode was suddenly over. So was the season. There was no “next week” to look forward to.
Viewers complained; they wanted answers; they wanted more. They just had to wait…
Chris O’Donnell, who plays Special Agent “G” Callen, says, “You want to make sure your new shows are even better than the old shows and I think it is a natural progression that they get better because the writing gets better.” Now, that wait is over.
More Action & Suspense
In the premiering episode of Season 5, we are immediately thrust back to where the action left off last season, as Kensi comes to Michelle’s rescue – last seen clinging for dear life out of a window…
As Callen tries to track down the elusive Sidorov, Kensi will also have to get Sam and Deeks out of the traumatic ordeal and the arms dealer’s clutches.
The torture that Sam and Deeks endured will leave scars and affect relationships between team members as the season continues.
The nuclear weapons are heard to be on a “ship”, but are still yet to be found. The NCIS: Los Angeles team must put their lives on the line to find and prevent the bombs from falling into the wrong hands.
Glowing Praise from the Actors
The actors of the series believe this new season of NCIS: Lost Angeles is going to be another huge hit – perhaps the biggest ever!
LL Cool J says, “Season 5 has some of the most interesting and dynamic moments that we have had since we started the show. You see vulnerability, you see flaws, but you also see lots of humour.”
Eric Christian Olsen, who plays Deeks, says, “This season is going to be great and the season premiere is starting off with one of the best episodes we have ever had.”
NCIS: Los Angeles premieres on Mon, Jun 16, at 9.45pm, first and exclusively on AXN, StarHub TV Ch 511.
