Film and TV: NCIS

Standard

I have a confession. I’ve recently gotten into another TV show and gotten completely obsessed. NCIS is that TV show…

My entire household love NCIS so much. I watch it with my parents on the many channels that are showing the repeats from the last ten seasons. My Grandad also loves it just as much. It’s just so damn good! First and foremost, the characters are brilliant, that’s what keeps us all engaged and it’s why my parents can watch the same episode over and over again (something that, believe me, is very rare for those two). The team has changed over the years but the dynamic has always been similar and has always had something that keeps us all hooked, ncis-7993-1920x1200perhaps it’s because we like the character development and the interactions between and around our favourite characters.

 Another thing that has made this show continue so well is that it must have amazing writers. I honestly believe the people who write NCIS are geniuses. They’ve managed to keep a show about the Navy and about murders with the same handful of characters so interesting. There must be over 200 episodes but thus far I have found all the ones I have watched completely different and engaging.

As I usually do, I’m going to enter a synopsis from IMDB: ‘Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs is the leader of a team of special agents belonging to the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) Major Case Response Team. Gibbs, a former Marine, is a tough investigator and a highly skilled interrogator who relies on his gut instinct as much as evidence. Gibbs’ second in command is Senior Field Agent Tony DiNozzo, a womanizing, movie-quoting former Baltimore Homicide Detective, who despite being the class clown always gets the job done. The team also consists of probationary field agent Ziva David, a former Mossad officer who is a skilled fighter, as well as Junior Field Agent Timothy McGee, a computer-savvy agent often mocked by DiNozzo. Assisting them are Abby Sciuto, the energetic-but-Goth lab tech who is like a daughter to Gibbs, and Dr. Donald Mallard, nicknamed Ducky, the eccentric medical examiner full of unusual stories. This team of elite agents, based in Washington, D.C., solve criminal cases involving Marine and Navy personnel’. neue-episoden-von-navy-30408_big

I just couldn’t recommend this programme enough, so please check it out if you haven’t already because it is genuinely so well written and has a handful of truly amazing actors; Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, David McCallum, Sean Murray, Cote de Pablo, Brian Dietzen, Rocky Carroll, Lauren Holly and Sasha Alexander are a few examples.

Ps. NCIS Los Angeles also looks brilliant and has some really good actors.

Beauty: Flexitol Hand Balm

Standard

DSC07778Do you have dry, cracked hands? Have you tried every hand lotion under the sun and yet nothing is working? Have you given up or are you determined not to take a trip to the doctors? I may have the answer because once, fair follower, I was like you.

I often struggle with dry hands due to a multitude of reasons from washing my hands too much, genetics and changes in the weather. I got to a point where my hands were in an awful state. They were horrifically dry, red and sore and uncomfortable. The longer it went on I realised it wasn’t being affected by the weather anymore but rather was caused by the fact I couldn’t find a decent hand lotion and I didn’t apply hand lotion enough.

This was all changed when I found Flexitol Hand Balm as a recommendation my mum got from her friend. This hand lotion is brilliant. It is relatively cheap at approximately £5 and only needs to be used sparingly. All you need is a small ‘blob’ of the lotion and then rub it into your hands. It manages to cover all of your hands, doesn’t have an awful sticky or nasty residue and works surprisingly fast. Within a day you do notice a difference as long as your apply the lotion regularly.

I really do recommend this product, it has worked so well for me and I still use it from time to time to prevent my hands from reaching the stage they once did.
