Are there already inaccuracies in the new NCIS show?

Fans are already not very happy with the NCIS franchise after they canceled one of their shows, “NCIS New Orleans.” Now, after months of promoting their newest police drama, “NCIS Hawai’i” the franchise looks like it may have dropped the ball again, according to fans. The new show is set to debut during the 2021-22 television season. But fans may have already spotted a hole in the show’s plot.

“NCIS Hawai’i” features a new team forming part of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service named the NCIS: Pearl. The show stars Vanessa Lachey as Jane Tennant. She plays the first female Special Agent in charge of the new law enforcement agency. The show is created by Christopher Silber, Jan Nash, and Matt Bosack. Silber is currently the lead creator for “NCIS: New Orleans.” He also previously produced and wrote for the original NCIS show. In conclusion, he has a lot of experience with the themes of the show.

Nevertheless, fans are already frustrated with possible inaccuracies on “NCIS Hawai’i.” A few fans took to Reddit to voice their confusion about the titles used on the show.

Fans Are Not Happy With The Titles Used In ‘NCIS Hawai’i’

One fan wrote, “One of my pet peeves with all the shows are the ranks/positions the characters hold. And on that topic. One of the things that worries me about ‘NCIS: Hawaii’ is the fact that the series lead Jane Tennant is introduced. ‘Lachey will play Jane Tennant, the first woman to be named special agent in charge of NCIS’ Pearl Harbor office.’”

The fan pointed out that the title is actually an administrative job without a lot of action involved.

“Do the writers not understand that Special Agent in Charge is a very administrative position?”

The fan then referred to the flagship series to help make their point.

“That would be like having Vance as the main character on NCIS. SAC’s day is filled by paperwork and meetings, not much time to involve themselves in a case in the field.

They then suggested the title that Jane Tennant should actually hold. They said they hope she plays a Supervisory Special Agent instead of a Special Agent in charge of the field office.

“If what I’m hoping is the case, that once again begs the question of how do the writers, after 18 years of making the shows, still not know the proper terminology of what positions Special Agents hold?” said the fan.
