‘NCIS’ season 11, episode 19 video: A grisly Mark Harmon – Scott Bakula scene

More news -The backdoor pilot for “NCIS: New Orleans” has so far been a pleasant journey down to New Orleans, and the new episode Tuesday night will serve the purpose of trying to figure out if it stays that way. Hopefully, they can at least stick the landing better than another CBS show in “How I Met Your Mother.” (We promise that we’ll be a little less bitter about that in a few days or so.)

At least everything in the “NCIS” sneak peek below suggests that “Crescent City: Part II” is going to be pretty awesome. The scene features Agent Pride (Scott Bakula) and Gibbs (Mark Harmon) investigating a new crime scene that can definitely be described as “nasty” first and foremost. You have a body that has obviously been through the wringer, and is barely even identifiable anymore. This may be tied to the current investigation … or at least you would hope so, given that we are still spending time with it.

What has worked so far very well for the prospective spin-off is that it has spent a great deal of time making sure that they have the entire essence of the Big Easy just about right, and that is something that you have to be pretty happy with. The one thing that we are a little bit worried about, though? Some of the New Orleans accents could be a little overkill depending on how they are presented if this show is actually picked up to series.

What do you think about this preview, and does it make you more excited than ever to see how this journey in New Orleans is going to end?
