    Am hoping the NCIS: Los Angeles part of the crossover mostly takes place back in Los Angeles, rather than taking place just on the Hawaiian island(s). You could see it as a ratings stunt, but it should bring better ratings for Hawaii Five-0. Trying not to read any spoilers for the Hawaiian-set series (especially up to and incuding the season finale), but I'm interested to read about this crossover.

    Well, the crossover with Hawaii Five-0 ended satisfactorily, but what happened in the majority of the episode wasn't as good as the setup in the first part. Too much comedy and the choice of music in scenes which were serious was awful (the throwaway conversation about McGarrett and 'Shellburne' for instance). I'm surprised that NCIS: Los Angeles is the second highest rated scripted drama series in the US. The acting on Hawaii Five-0, whilst not perfect, is much better than on the NCIS spin-off (the original NCIS is a much better show than it's spin-off).

    I've seen better two-part crossovers, but I would still like to see a second Hawaii Five-0 crossover next season, but with the original NCIS and hopefully with Alex O'Loughlin involved. Even though I don't like the CSI shows, thought the crossover with CSI and Without a Trace a few seasons ago was very good, with the Law & Order and Homicide: Life on the Street crossover "Sideshow" being the best (haven't seen the first two crossovers between these two shows).

    Interesting. I actually have the exact opposite view: the acting on Five-0 is generally okay to cringe-worthy, while the performances on NCIS-LA are generally good to great.

    Personally, I would like to see another full NCIS/NCIS:LA crossover.

    Regarding the season finale, I found it enjoyable--my guess is that the events at the end are all part of a larger undercover op the assistant director is running.

    Had to avoid reading the last sentence of your post (two weeks away from seeing the season finale).

    That's what's so interesting about forums. If we had the same opinion on topics it would be a very boring place. And if someone disagrees with your opinion, they shouldn't have to change what they think. On the occasions I've watched NCIS: Los Angeles I haven't been impressed by the acting.
