Is there a case to be made for NCIS to have a presence at San Diego Comic-Con down the road? While it may not seem obvious at first, we do think that there is a good argument for it.
Lets of course start things off here with the counter-argument that we know will be out there for this: NCIS is not a comic-book show, and therefore has no business being there. You could make the same argument about a number of other shows that routinely attend — Glee has been there in the past and Magnum PI was there this year. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is also having a panel this time around. We think that SDCC has evolved past the point where just comic-book-related shows and movies appear. It’s more of a geek convention, and you can really be geeky about almost everything under the sun. We don’t want the focus to ever drift too far from the original premise of things related to comics, but a one-off appearance for NCIS could turn out to be rather fun.
When would be the best time to do it? Think in terms of a season 20! What better time would there be to celebrate the show than at that point? If the CBS show makes it that far, we do think that it deserves something special as a means of celebration. Of course, we’d love to see it there before then in the event that it has a final season beforehand.
We know that there have been opportunities here and there to meet the cast in the past, but what bums us out in 2018 is that if you love crime TV, there aren’t very many venues out there that really allow you a chance to meet many of your favorite entertainers. We wish there was a clear way in which to change that — the best hope is that someone out there will choose to start an independent crime TV convention, but those are expensive endeavors and rather hard things to get set up.
