Fans of NCIS: New Orleans enjoyed a new episode last week and the crew has now left for holiday hibernation. Furthermore, repeats have been scheduled for the next two weeks. However, the good news is that the episode re-aired on 22nd December and viewers were given the flavor of a particular local pianist by the time it was completed.
Here is all that you need to know about the show this week. Series veteran James Whitmore Sr. directed Sic Semper Tyrannis and he also directed the 2014 episode which introduced the New Orleans characters to the audiences.
This further provided the setting for the formation of NCIS: New Orleans. Sic Semper Tyrannis was executed by Jeffrey Lieber, the producer and it originally aired on 22nd September as the Season 2 Premiere.
This title is in Latin and it translates to ‘thus always to tyrants’ in English. It is a historic quote which was attributed to Brutus during the Julius Caesar assassination. John Wilkes Booth borrowed it during the Abraham Lincoln assassination.
The network synopsis reads, “After a military convoy is bombed on a New Orleans bridge, Pride and the team plan a dangerous undercover operation to retrieve a stolen missile and prevent an attack on a U.S. Naval ship.” In the meantime, Scott Bakula and his “NCIS: New Orleans” castmates get a visit from Mac Rebennack during the end of the episode. Mac is better known as Dr. John who further guest-stars as himself.
He further tickles the ivories, designated for an On-camera interpretation of ‘Right Place Wrong Time’. Rebennack said through Twitter that the entire thing was completely hip and he declared, “Scott and the whole gang were off da hook’’. Lieber declared that the plan to introduce Dr. John on the show was a complete no-brainer.
Pride was going to purchase and restore a bar in New Orleans as decided earlier and it was known that Dr. John would be the first musician on the show. He said in CBS publicity materials that Dr. John is a huge portion of the soul of Crescent City Music and moreover, He is a Legend. They wanted Pride’s venue to be blessed by him in the same way that he was blessed many real musical institutions in New Orleans.
NCS: Los Angeles did not return for a 12th Episode this week and from the looks of it, this CBS Crime Drama series is facing a danger of being cancelled if the ratings don’t pick up.
After the midseason finale, there wasn’t much improvement during its first 12 weeks on air for Season. Be warned, there are spoilers ahead! Design & Trend conducted a research and according to it, the season 7 for NCIS: Los Angeles wasn’t enjoyed by a lot of viewers. The show managed to scrape an average rating of 1.2 percent during the first half of the season, specifically in the vital 18-49 age group.
This is quite unimpressive when compared to its sister franchise, NCIS: New Orleans. NCIS, the parent series, premiered before NCIS: New Orleans and on its 13th season, it is enjoying good ratings as well. Right now, it is not clear whether CBS will decide to renew NCIS: Los Angeles for an upcoming eighth season.
The numbers don’t look promising at all but it can go either way. CBS makes the show with the help of its own production studio and this should increase the chances of it coming back. The Home Stretch for the season 7 of NCIS: Los Angeles really needs to deliver if the show needs to be renewed.
