New Season Reviews: NCIS: New Orleans, Person of Interest

NCIS: New Orleans

If you had a successful recipe for beignets, would you mess with it? Same rule applies for CBS's NCIS: New Orleans (9/8c), the latest transplantation of TV's most durable (and around the world, most watched) franchise. This second spinoff — forcing NCIS: LA to move to Mondays starting next week — of a series that was itself a spinoff (of the long-running JAG) hews strictly to the... read more

How Will NCIS: New Orleans Set Itself Apart From the "Mothership"?

Scott Bakula

NCIS: New Orleans was never supposed to be a series.

But that changed when NCIS creator Gary Glasberg — with a little nudge from star Mark Harmon — got swept away by the city's food, culture, music and overall charm. And meeting D'Wayne Swear, the real-life NCIS agent on whom Scott Bakula's NCIS: New Orleans character is based, didn't hurt either.

Sneak Peek: Scott Bakula Previews NCIS: New Orleans

Scott Bakula

If you're seeking a metaphor for acting, you couldn't do much better than the body-jumping premise of Quantum Leap. In the 21 years since that series went off the air, its star, Scott Bakula, has leaped into a striking array of characters, with an initial emphasis on more sci-fi (Star Trek: Enterprise) eventually offset by a turn toward naturalistic dramedy (Men of a Certain Age). But playing a cop on a network procedural? Inexplicably, that seemingly inevitable move had proven a leap too far.

This oversight has finally been rectified with Bakula's role as the lead in NCIS: New Orleans, premiering on CBS Sept. 23 in the coveted Tuesday time slot immediately following the franchise's flagship series...

Tuesday TV: A Henson Challenge, Brooklyn Finale, NCIS's Big Easy Spinoff

Gigi Edgley

If you like Syfy's Face Off (as I do), then you're already predisposed to enjoy the channel's new reality competition series Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge (Tuesday, 10/9c), which often feels like a shot-by-shot copy, complete with fetching female host (Farscape's Gigi Edgley), insane time pressures in producing elaborately fanciful Henson-esque creatures, and a three-member judging panel including the likable Brian Henson (Jim's son and chairman of the Henson Company with its fabled Creature Shop). What Creature Shop may lack in originality it makes up for in creative energy, with the contestants further challenged in mentoring sessions by being made to focus on having the full-body costumes be fully functional for the skilled Henson puppeteers within. The climactic "Screen Test" reveals are fun to watch, and the critiques (as in Face Off) are smartly constructive.
