NCIS: NEW ORLEANS REVIEWED
“NCIS: New Orleans” is a show that exists because your parents haven’t given up on TV. Stretching the NCIS concept to a third city, we’re now supposed to buy a fleet of investigators that keep tackling the same kind of crimes. The casts are interchangeable, but it’s not like your parents can remember actors. Don’t believe me? Hold up the box art and ask your mom to pick out CCH Pounder. The lady can’t do it.
The second season had a crossover with NCIS that was pretty much a blind carbon copy posing as a show. While I get that people like larger casts, how does this material keep working? I’ve seen older viewers get annoyed with recycled content. I don’t totally buy the argument that these shows get massive ratings by being background noise at hospitals. Yet, every hospital I’ve visited always has their TVs set to CBS or A&E. I wonder if the NCIS: New Orleans team would be ready to solve that case. They wouldn’t. Bakula only exists to serve his corporate overlords. It’s why he’s not a Starfleet captain anymore.
