Operating out of the Big Easy, this show is an offshoot of the original NCIS dealing with a field office which investigates cases dealing with U.S. military personnel. Team leader is Special Agent Dwayne Pride (played by Scott Bakula), who is a native of the city. The rest of the team is Special Agent Hannah Khoury (played by Necar Zadegan), Special Agent Christopher Lasalle (played by Lucas Black), Senior Field Agent Tammy Gregorio (played by Vanessa Ferlito), Special Agent Sebastian Lund (played by Rob Kerkovich) and they are aided by computer specialist Patton Plame (played by Daryl Mitchell) and coroner Dr. Loretta Wade (played by CCH Pounder). While they are a crack team sometimes the temptations of New Orleans gets to even them.
While this all sounds like it would be fast paced but somehow things drag this season. Though this is the newest member of the NCIS franchise it is the one which seems a little out of step.
The writing is a little drab and often the stories do not make any sense this season. Are they running out of ideas? Seem to attempt to pad the lack of real police stories with stuff of the personal nature about the agents. Doesn’t really work.
It was announced (before COVID messed things up) that the show was being renewed for next season. Here’s to hoping they sort things out.
