Word is, those scenes were shot in a studio in LA (not as in Louisiana "LA") . . . eek.gif

Lots more trivia here if anyone's interested.
It looked like it to me, I ate there recently....

Good job on the set if it wasn't.

I had seen a couple of weeks ago that the "Mother's" scenes weren't really Mother's. But I don't recall just where I read or saw it . . .

NCIS is a spin-off of JAG. Generally, you would not use the same actor on both shows unless they played the same character.

Technically, yes, but not in the usual way. Donald P. Belasario the showrunner on JAG wanted a new show so he put some of the NCIS actors in a few JAG episodes in order to introduce the NCIS concept to viewers. Once JAG ended and NCIS went live there were no JAG characters who were part of NCIS, although Harmon might have been a couple of the first episodes to ease the transition. My minds a little hazy on that.

On the usual spin-off a memorable character is put into a new show as the same character facing new situations.

Ummm, this was pretty obvious.  All the guys in the "Fed 5" called each other "my brother".

I agree and I am a big fan of Scott Bakula since Quantum Leap. (Another Bellisario series. Is rrainwater bothered by that , too?) The accent, the name, the nickname (King) and the "my brother" all seem phoney to me. NOLA seems like a good locale for a series, I'm surprised it's not used more often, but I'd like to see Scott Bakula just be natural.

I guess I was paying more attention to the depiction of the local area and people than to the show itself. I didn't realize that everyone on the show was calling each other "my brother" every five minutes . . . It just stood out to me as coming from the "Pride" character. And just as there are not parades in the French Quarter on a daily basis, people around here don't use that phrase continually. smile.gif

But... most of us don't know that. We look on New Orleans as a somewhat magical place where people and customs are just different enough to be more than a little interesting. If there is an NCIS: NO spinoff, count me in even with the few flaws people have noted. It sure seems better than the 'other' NCIS possible spinoff starring Kim Raver that CBS tested on us last year (although I love Kim Raver).

No problem.  Both Gibbs and Pride called each other "my brother" several times (including when they were both in DC last week) and when they went to the home to visit their old partner they called him "my brother" as well.  It was just a nickname that the 5 of them used back in the day for each other when they bonded and still use to this day.

 

I have the same crazy thing with a bunch of old friends from college where for some reason we all called each other "Russ" and to this day, 20+ yrs later if we see each other we'll say "how's it going Russ?" which of course confuses everyone else as to why we're calling each other Russ when none of us are named Russ.  :)

These back door spinoff episodes sometimes do not end up having the same flavor as the new series. The NCIS spinoff episodes ("Ice Queen" and "Meltdown") in JAG were a little weird.

Ducky was talking to dead bodies but the view was filtered and the perspective was from the eyes of the dead body. Also, he was constantly trying to date a much younger member of the team (Special Agent Vivian Blackadder played by Robyn Lively). Those scenes were creepy in a stalker-ish kind of way.

No Kate either...

And the FBI agent on loan in the spinoff is played by Zoe McLellan who was on Jag

I could never get into the LA NCIS spinoff, but count me in for the NO try. Maybe I could stay in long enough to understand the young "brother's" accent. I missed much of what he was saying, but I liked the way he said it.

I'll take it one step further than you. Not only did it not click, it seemed incredibly cheesy and contrived.

I'm gonna have to disagree with you here. NCIS: Red was a work of art compared to NCIS: NO.

I agree. LA is enjoyable, but NO reminds me of show desperately trying too hard and floundering miserably. Between Bakula's fake accent and Lucas Black's whiny pitched marble mouth enunciation + accent you couldn't understand half of what they said and I'm good with understanding accented English.

That's what happens when outsiders come here and in short order, try to act like they're "from here". They just don't "get it".
It's entirely possible for outsiders to become "locals", but it takes time. And you can't "act" it, you have to "feel" it . . . smile.gif

I like NCIS: LA. To me it works, as it isn't trying to be a copy of NCIS with different actors plugged into the same roles.

The NCIS: Red spinoff didn't work for me because it was trying to clone NCIS: LA... and outside of Orphan Black, clones never measure up! smile.gif

Similarly... NCIS: NO is trying to be NCIS with a Gibbs clone, and a Ducky clone, and a quirky forensics dude instead of Abby...

If they want to make a spinoff work, it has to be like how they started.

Jag -> NCIS -> NCIS: LA. None of these were clones of the predecessor... they just exist in the same universe and branched off from it with their own flavor of show.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Your j/k threw me off. They really did try a new CSI spinoff / pilot this week, though I haven't watched it yet. CSI: Cyber...

Looks like Ralph Waites death is addressed on this weeks episode.. Description of episode is: "Gibbs visits his childhood home following news of his father's passing."

Yes, it has been ordered for the fall. Like NCIS: LA, I had a lot of issues with the New Orleans back door pilot. However, they fixed a lot of the issues with LA by the time the spin off began, so I'm hoping for the same for New Orleans.

I'm tempted to ignore this spinoff entirely. I might tune in for episode one to see if they tweaked it. As mentioned a character or two from NCIS:LA was dropped and others retooled between the NCIS episode and the premier of the spinoff series... so I guess I'm saying there's a chance.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!
