Another hint... my idea goes all the way back to the first episode. Not the JAG backdoor pilot... but the actual first NCIS episode. Now that I think about it, there's even the possibility for another twist BUT if I said that, it would completely give up the ghost on my idea.

OK start. My favorite part was Bud Roberts and the reference to Harm and Mac. I wonder how many viewers remember this was a spinoff from JAG?

Probably not many, unless they saw the NCIS pilot episode(s).
My wife didn't recognize the character....so we watched the pilot episodes of NCIS (JAG) when we lost interest with "Bull".

My curiosity....
In the early seasons of NCIS, McGee's character wasn't introduced until after the season started. So how did he (McGee) know Roberts? Have they met (in a previous episode)?

JAG and NCIS work together so I assume that McGee probably testified in cases Roberts brought over the years, even the year before he was brought onto the team.

It's been a long time but I thought McGee was introduced as a tech support resource they had used on and off?

I also seem to recall that he's Don Bellisario's stepson?

I had it in my thoughts that McGee didn't become a team member until a couple of years into the run.

On edit from Wiki:

Timothy "Tim" Farragut[1][2][3][4] McGee (/mæˈɡiː/ ma-gee or /məˈɡiː/ mə-gee) is a fictional character from the CBS television series NCIS. He is portrayed by Sean Murray. McGee specializes in cybersecurity and computer crime, and is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and MIT.

Prior to joining the main cast during the series' second season which also saw him being added to the opening credits, Murray appeared as a guest star in eight episodes of NCIS (season 1).

Or recall that JAG's first season was on NBC. I bet they still kick themselves for letting go of that franchise.

Just watched - seemed like a decent fresh start that could develop into a better team chemistry and balance if they handle it right. I liked Esposito on Blue Bloods and this role should give her a little more depth and take some of the pressure off Bishop to fill Ziva's shoes...

"Fez" is basically a male Ziva... Esposito seems like a Female Tony... not exactly... but in some ways it's like they've gender-swapped on these replacements. That might be a good thing. It will help cut down on comparisons. "Fez" is not going to be compared to Tony as a result of his character type. FYI, I only call him "Fez" because that is WAY easier to type than the actor's real name. I didn't find myself thinking "hey, it's Fez" while watching him, his character acting was (dare I say it) dramatically different.

I liked it. Seems like they're one desk short, right?

I did not watch last year, but did watch the reboot. It's an improvement and I might add it back into my rotation.

I Just dumped 20+recordings of NCIS but I did watch the last. Sucks they killed Ziva off. I knew I'd never sit through all those episodes with the new stuff starting, though my viewing is way way down this year. So far I've got lots of holes in my viewing, maybe it's a good thing...

I enjoyed the surprise appearance of Bud Roberts, now promoted to Captain at JAG.
Last we saw him over 10 years ago he was a Lt. Commander.
McGee should have asked Bud about his wife, son, and brother Mikey...

Sean Murray before NCIS guest starred on a few episodes of JAG too as the son of the girl friend of the Admiral.
