Backstopped (3x03) review by @mokibobolink for @daemonstv
Those of you who may have read my review of this week’s episode of Hawaii Five-0 might be thinking that there was one aspect about tonight’s episode of NCIS: Los Angeles that I didn’t like. But unlike in that other show, I actually enjoyed the mixing up of the partners in this episode.
Why did I like it? Because *this* mix-up happened amongst partnerships we already knew and that made it interesting – watching as these pairs tried to figure out each of their new partners. Not that I’d want things to stay this way of course, but it was fun for a little while. I felt like it gave us chance to view each character and each partnership differently. They all have their own quirks, but both pairings are their own finely oiled machine and work in their own way.
Heck, I enjoyed this so much that I’d even be on board with mixing it up again at some point in the future. I liked seeing Deeks with Sam and Kensi with Callen, but I’d also love to see what would happen if Kensi was paired with Sam, and Deeks with Callen again.
