Where have you been all my life?

I'm talking about the show NCIS generally, and Mark Harmon specifically. There's been a marathon of episodes on the USA Network and I've been watching it off and on all day. I know it's been on for seasons, but this marathon is my introduction to it. The production values are high end, the stories are interesting enough, and I love the way the characters interact. (Lots of backstory, and they're always swatting one another upside the head.)

And Mark Harmon is hot. I've reflexively avoided him for more than 20 years now because he was so convincing as Ted Bundy in The Deliberate Stranger. I hate scary hot guys. But now that he's white haired and not unattractively lined, he no longer reminds me of a creepy/charming serial killer/stalker. Also, his character's name is Jethro. How can you fear any guy named Jethro?
