I’m a huge NCIS fan, who likes to visit New Orleans so whenever the two hooked up — NCIS: New Orleans — I was ready.
The local field office for NCIS, located in The Big Easy, investigates criminal cases involving military personnel.
Leading the team is Special Agent Dwayne Pride, a.k.a. "King," a native of New Orleans who is driven by his need to do what is right. Working with Pride is his longtime friend and colleague Special Agent Christopher Lasalle, who plays hard but works harder; tough and acerbic Special Agent Tammy Gregorio, a former FBI Agent who was sent to New Orleans to investigate NCIS and upon completion joined Pride's team, Forensic Agent Sebastian Lund, a brilliant scientist who left the lab and, after much training, became an agent; and Special Agent Hannah Khoury, a seasoned agent who specializes in international counter-intelligence and has spent most of her career on overseas assignments. Supporting them is coroner Dr. Loretta Wade, who is as eccentric as she is smart, and Investigative Computer Specialist Patton Plame, an animated and talented hacker.
It’s the background of this voodoo city which really becomes a story within itself.
Sadly, the show has come to an end. Happily, the entire series is available on DVD, thanks to my friends at CBS and Paramount.
In a statement, the Dwayne Pride actor and TV icon (Scott Bakula) said: “Sad to end our love affair with this phenomenal city but so grateful for all the friends we made along the way [...] I will miss the music. Big thank you to CBS for seven years.”
I will say, as I watched the last disc — there were some unanswered questions. Perhaps a movie might be added to tie everything up.
There are also some cool special features within this set.
Including; join the cast and executive producers as they speak about their amazing experiences making NCIS: New Orleans. Bakula and Field show a real passion for NCIS: New Orleans and for each other. This interview with the two stars will give you an insight into how this off-screen married couple work together, and how their on-screen relationship differs from their real lives.
You can watch the whole series in 108 hours and 48 minutes.
