NCIS... I Like the Old Guys

I like to watch NCIS. It has an interesting cast of characters. I wasn't crazy about Lauren Holly when she was on it but she has been replaced by a better character. Good move. She was always so moody, and I didn't like the back story between her and Mark Harmon.

I especially like the old guys in the cast. First, there is Mark Harmon. A good looking man who has aged very well. Then there is David McCallum. I actually like him better now than I did when he was young.

Do you remember "The Man From UNCLE"? Probably not, unless you are as old as I am. It was on from 1964 to 1968. Robert Vaughn and David McCallum played agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. UNCLE was the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (the good guys), fighting the evil THRUSH. It was a super show!

Anyway, this is how David McCallum looked back in the sixties:

This is how he looks now, playing Dr. Mallard (Ducky) on NCIS.

When I watched the first episode of NCIS, I was surprised and pleased to see David McCallum in the cast. A wave of nostalgia swept over me, as I was transported back to the sixties. It was so much fun to see him again. I hadn't thought of "The Man from Uncle" in years.

It's hard to believe so much time has passed since I was a young girl. It all goes so fast. It's fun to revisit your youth!

I agree with you; I think McCallum looks better now. I used to watch NCIS, and I also wasn't crazy about the Lauren Holly character.

Do I remember 'The Man From UNCLE'? I certainly do! We schoolgirls all had such a crush on Ilya Kuryakin! Sigh... Still a firm jawline, I see...
