NCIS: New Orleans: The Fourth Season is a bit better than its previous seasons, though the writing still is not the series strong point and the acting isn’t always the best.

SEASON SYNOPSIS


A nuclear terror threat. An elusive serial killer. A mystifying supernatural murder. These are just a few of the pulse-poundning, edge-if-your-seat cases facing the elite NCIS team. But no matter the risks, the heroic agents, led by Special Agent Dwayne Cassius Pride (SCOTT BAKULA), remain at the top of their game.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 3.0/5


The 6-disc set is housed in a standard DVD case and slides into a matted slip cover. This release comes with a few featurettes: Season Four: Big Easy Does It (23:40), “Chill” Out (6:00), #1 Fan Questions (2:07) and Scott and Chelsea: Double Date (7:00). Also included are some Deleted Scenes.

 

VIDEO – 4.5/5, AUDIO – 3.75/5


(Both copied from my season 1 review)

Paramount releases NCIS: New Orleans in its original televised anamorphic 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and the show looks pretty darn good taking advantage of the bright colors of the Crescent City. There’s some minor aliasing but nothing terrible and detail for standard def is decent.

Each episode is accompanied by a Dolby Digital 5.1 track which more than gets the job done offering clear dialogue while the more action-centric scenes as well as the occasional explosion provides some depth, though it’s not entirely robust but for a lossy track, it’s above average.

OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, NCIS: New Orleans: The Fourth Season is a bit better than its previous seasons, though the writing still is not the series strong point and the acting isn’t always the best, even when taking into consideration of some questionable dialogue. The DVD is fine with good video and audio transfers while the features were alright.
