NCIS star Brian Dietzen feels like fans understand him after some funny responses to one of the show’s recent posts. Dietzen plays Jimmy Palmer and is one of the few remaining cast members whose been around since the early seasons.
“There are some hilarious comments on this one. I feel like you guys get me [laughing emoji],” the NCIS actor wrote in a recent tweet.
Fans really did have some fun captions.
“Paint me like one of your French girls…” one person said.
“when your crush is taking the crime scene photos,” another Twitter user joked.
Other fans couldn’t help but reference the shocking recent episode where Gibbs left the series, saying goodbye to McGee and deciding to stay in Alaska.
“I didn’t get to say good-bye to Gibbs. This my brooding about it look,” one fan quipped. Another one just went in for the kill.
“When you’re the only one left,” he wrote. That, of course, is a reference to the fact that Dietzen is one of the few remaining cast members left from the original seasons. Everyone else has slowly but surely backed out of the series.
Dietzen, McGee actor Sean Murray, and Ducky actor David McCallum are the remaining few from the first few seasons. Everyone else is pretty much a newbie. It’s definitely causing some friction in the fanbase, some of which don’t see themselves sticking around now that Gibbs is gone.
Will ‘NCIS’ Remain the Most Popular Network Show in the World?
NCIS has been an absolute ratings beast for CBS, but will it stay that way now that Mark Harmon is gone? It’s hard to say. A lot of fans have expressed their frustrations with the show online about the lack of consistency in the cast. Now that Mark Harmon is gone, who was essentially the face of the show, fans are contemplating jumping ship.
There are two new cast members on board this year, Gary Cole and Katrina Law. It looks like they’ve joined to fill the gaps left by not only Mark Harmon, but agent Bishop actress Emily Wickersham who left after season 18. With so many new people coming in and so many older cast members leaving, the show simply doesn’t feel the same anymore to a lot of people.
But it’s the highest-rated show in the world for a reason. The series has maintained that status even after the loss of castmates who played beloved characters like Ziva, Dinozzo, and Abby. Its hard to tell whether or not this departure will be different, or if enough people will stick around.
If you want to see what the show does to keep fans interested, you can tune into NCIS every Monday Night at 9/8 Central. Afterward, you can always catch an episode of the all-new NCIS: Hawai’i.
