I ship an impossible couple -- I know, sigh...  
I'm just finished episode 21 of season 3 of NCIS

1. I really do enjoy this show. There's very few shows I consider brain candy, that I really, really love watching, must watch right away, but don't obsess over. This shows is one of those few. (Leverage is the other, for what it's worth.)

2. Tony DiNozzo is my favorite character. Could be my love of Michael Weatherly going back to his days as Cooper on the soap Loving, through Dark Angel. Could just be because I love Tony. Doesn't matter, Tony's my fave. Period.

3. I ship a couple on this show. Abby and Gibbs. I know! Not extremely, but I do squee when they have scenes, I do do the girly hand shake of joy when they have cute moments. I do get all wheee!!! when he goes into protective mode, and is always sweet and nice to her *only.* What can I say? I totally ship them. I've tried not to, I know it's supposed to be father-daughter, blah, blah, blah, but, but, but Mark Harmon and Pauley Perrette have such great chemistry and I just love them so. So I caved -- I went looking and found two fairly active lj comms for them -- with smut and everything. BUT, I will not peruse them (or read the smut) until I'm caught up with the show. I know there will never, ever, ever, EVER be anything even remotely close to canon with these two, and I'm okay with that. As long as they continue to have their scenes as they have thus far, I will happily ship and squee the impossible.

Oh, please don't spoil me in the comments. Thank you :)

I'm only sporadically involved in NCIS but I am with you with the non-canon shipping. I ship Tony/Abby and sadly all the fics for them are OOC; the fandom is sparse.

Hmm. I like Tony the best, too. He is just entertaining.

It's one of those shows that is at its best when it embraces its campiness. When they go all earnest and and try to be edgy, it's kind of hard to watch for me.

Gibbs/Abby. I have very few hangups when it comes to pairings. Age is one of the few. I cannot think of an instance where I wasn't eeked out by that. I know Pauley Perrette is 40 years old in real life, but she definitely plays someone younger on the show. And Harmon is probably playing pretty close to his age. And even if they want us to assume Gibbs is younger than Harmon, who's pushing 60, it still doesn't work for me. Honestly, if they looked differently -- she looked/acted more mature and he was more youthful, maaaaaybe they could pull it off. But as it is, if in all honesty I saw those two people independently at some public place together, my assumption would be either father/daughter or the dude is indulging his very belated mid-life crisis. And nowhere it is better illustrated than in your icon. I look at that screenshot and I see a grandpa pecking his pig-tailed granddaughter on her rosy cheek. lol. Sorry!!!

I totally ship Gibbs and Abby. They're my two favorites, and I love their chemistry. So much fun.

And I'm glad you love NCIS!

Yes, I'm very, very late coming to NCIS, and I really like Gibbs and Abby together; not sure if it's shipping, or Dad-daughter stuff, but it's sweet. And I love DiNozzo.

Yay! I love Abby/Gibbs - they're so adorable! On the whole father/daughter thing - I know a lot of people think that's implied, but has it ever been actually stated on or off the show?

I have a couple of fanvid's I'd rec but I think they contain clips after S3 so I'll hold off on that. It's weird, I'm usually really paranoid about spoilers but with NCIS I totally watch them out of order. I mean, I try not to watch the newest episodes until I've caught up on the season but the reruns come on USA so often I usually get sucked into watching a few episodes, lol.
