    The show makes good use of its New Orleans setting and the script hits all the right, albeit familiar, notes.

    There's enough detail in the setting and characterization to keep it distinct from the mothership, but also more than enough of the template (down to the freeze-frame tic at the open and close of each act) to make it go down like a comforting plate of crawfish etouffee.

    [Bakula and Pounder] should make the process of watching--or chore of watching, depending on your appetite for more of this formula--just a little more agreeable.

    The cast has easy chemistry, the New Orleans setting is colorful, and Pounder lends class to anything she does. The CBS procedural formula works, but that doesn't make it feel any less formulaic.

    NCIS: NO is set and shot in Louisiana's signature city, providing a visual and cultural richness that will help set the show apart. More than the writing does, anyway, at least initially.

    For some viewers this sameness will be like slipping on a comfy pair of slippers; for others NCIS: New Orleans might be too much the same.

    It all ends in thoroughly predictable fashion--and without any zip or pop.

I find the cast pleasing both as individuals and as a team. Like NCIS: LA, it is a distinct entity and not just a clone of the original NCIS. Compared to the other major action/thriller spin-off of this season, CSI: Cyber, it is positively wonderful! Expand

The LA version has pretty outrageous plots but at least the characters are interesting. The New Orleans version has both bad writing and bad acting. Its almost unwatchable its so bad. The stealth pilot NCIS episode wasn't bad but the first two episodes of the spinoff were not nearly as good. One more clunker and its off the Tivo. Expand

    I am sorry to be so harsh but as an experienced NCIS viewer I cannot watch this spin-off. The acting is terrible, as are the accents. NCISI am sorry to be so harsh but as an experienced NCIS viewer I cannot watch this spin-off. The acting is terrible, as are the accents. NCIS with Gibbs, Tony or Ducky is always in the episode in one way or another. The story lines are transparent, predictable and little effort has been provided for authenticity. For example, the Lieutenant on scene with her badge on the wrong side. As a retired MP this irked me. Stealing episodes from NCIS like Bubonic Plague? Tony already did that one. Honestly I feel that you should have stopped at NCIS: L.A. I have removed this show from my DVR. It is sadly a time consumer when I have other shows to watch. My apologies to the cast that earns a living but I'm just not feelin' it. Expand

The characters and the actors' performances SUCK! Their accents are unbelievable and the story line is a constant disappointment. I have turned to USA and TNT for Tuesday night entertainment. My co-workers have agreed that this show is a huge disappointment.
    Scott Bakula? Really? He has a string of failures behind him. Don't ruin what could be at least a mediocre production by putting him in the lead role.
