NCIS: LA "Red: Part One" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

We get to meet the new NCIS team called Red! I gotta say, that I love the new team and it sounds like an interesting story line for a TV show, too! 

New Agents are: Paris (I think she's the leader), Claire, Dave, Danny, Kai and the later joined by Roy.

So, the LA team is investigating a murder that happened in Idaho and that's where the Red team come into play because Hetty says that they need extra help. Callen and Sam go to Idaho and to their disappointment, Granger is also there. I think I've said this before, but I don't like him. I don't know why, but I just don't really trust him.

Hetty is hiding something from the whole team. Once Callen and Sam get there and get settled in, Hetty calls them asking for a report and they all thought that was strange. Wondering why Hetty is checking up on them.

Callen and Sam have to share a bunk bed and Sam is not thrilled about having to sleep on the top. He realizes there's a pull down bed and goes to that, but then they realize that they also have to share a room with Granger! So, I think Sam lost and had to sleep on the top anyways. 

Callen, Sam and the Red team have to go to the crime scene because they realize that the guy that was killed left his cellphone there. They find it, but are run off the road by a snowplow! Danny gets shot (he's fine, but they are an agent down now).

Anybody else think that Paris and Callen like each other? Or was that just me? 

So, because Danny is shot, they are an agent down now and that's where Roy comes in. I immediately like him better, but it could be because I like the actor. But Roy and Paris do not like each other! We don't know why, but Granger and Hetty know. I think Roy and Paris dated and they got put under fire and Roy got shot and he was mad at Paris for not being there to protect him or something. Could be that or something different. 

The Red team gets stationed wherever they are needed. I don't think they have just one spot like Washington or LA. Which is why I think this would make for an interesting show. This is supposed to become another spin-off, I believe.
