"NCIS: New Orleans" review by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays 9/8c on CBS

This is the second spin-off from the show "NCIS", which has been around a long time and is one of the most popular shows on CBS. I've always enjoyed watching "NCIS", especially because of the characters on the show. The murders they solve are not that important. However, a lot of times, they show how the military covers up things, and those are my favorite episodes.

"NCIS: Los Angeles", which is not my favorite, is more about fighting terrorists than it is about solving murders or Navy-related crimes. The characters are okay, and they grow on you, but they're not as fun as the ones on NCIS.

For "NCIS: New Orleans", they wisely chose to make it more like original flavor "NCIS", at least as far as I can tell so far.  The differences, though, are what make this interesting. Since it's set in New Orleans, it's more laid-back than the other two NCIS shows. Scott Bakula's Dwayne "King" Pride is nothing like Jethro Gibbs or Hettie. It's actually hard to believe that he was ever in the Navy. He only has two agents, Merri and Chris, to help him with the cases (plus the medical people).  Merri is new to New Orleans and loving the city. Chris is from Alabama and has a thick accent. He looks the most like a Navy man.

The City of New Orleans is a character on the show as well, and they do their best to show off how colorful and lively it is, and its residents as well.  There's a sub-plot involving corrupt city officials (with Steven Weber, who seems to be everywhere these days!) that looks very promising.

If you like either of the other NCIS shows, you should enjoy this one. If you're a huge fan of Scott Bakula, or of New Orleans, you might like it even more! Scott Bakula is always great, to me, and he's clearly having fun in the show. Check it out!
