Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that NCIS: New Orleans contains all the content one expects from an NCIS spin-off, including graphic crime scenes showing bloody wounds, mutilated body parts, and corpses. Weapons, drugs, and other crime-related images are shown and discussed. There's some drinking (beer, cocktails), as well as mild sexual innuendo. There are a few iffy words (like "hell"), too.
Is It Any Good?
As with its sister shows, this series offers the same crime scenes, autopsies, and occasional quirks but this time with the kind of flair that New Orleans is known for. In fact, much of what makes NCIS: New Orleans interesting is the local culture in which these stories take place, which brings with it the local cuisine, music, and history.
NCIS fans will find it worth watching. However, newcomers to the series may be put off by the endless array of violent images, which range from gun fights to mutilated body parts. Nonetheless, if you're looking to be entertained by an upbeat crime series, this one will fit the bill.
