So did I. And I re-wound and watched it again, trying to pinpoint anything to do with the nickname. Frankly at first I found it difficult (from LaSalle's heavy accent) to tell whether he was calling him "King" or "Cain".

You know, when she mentioned Auggie I did a double take and forgot for a moment that this was a different network. I briefly wondered if we were going to see a crossover ep between Covert Affairs and NCIS. And then I remembered....
: )

I have worked for years on computer and network support - and someone in one of the comments above is trying to argue me that all of that was possible. That power cords can magically be reconfigured to be data lines.(!) From Abby's brief and hurried explanation, she had isolated the computer from the network, plus put it in a box (wow) to shield it from the rest of the room. Then, the virus snaked out via electric cables to infect the lab. I burst out laughing at that one.

You raise a good point. After determining their location, Tony was able to hop on a plane, grab a van and high-tail it to Gibbs and company in extremely short order. A little magical, that one.

You're free to disagree and dislike the show all you like - in fact the place would be boring otherwise. But to cast aspersion on the review by making the false claim that we get paid by CBS is lame to say the least. I honestly loved this episode. I didn't love the other NCIS: New Orleans show though. Go read that one.

I suppose I disagree with you. Pride is nothing like Gibbs and doesn't try to be. Brody might be a bit like Ziva but....there's a bratty sparkle in her eye which tells me she's her own character. And of course the "aw shucks ma'am" LaSalle is nothing like any of the NCIS characters: not McGee, and not Palmer. I like these characters but felt they were poorly used in this opening episode. Especially Pride. P.S. I found the episode sleepy not the characters.

Wolfshades

You and me both. The setting for the show is terrific - which is why I think it might have staying power, despite this weak start.

Wolfshades

Well it would have to be, wouldn't it? A simple electrical cord plugged into a computer doesn't magically become a data cable.

The hope here is that this season will continue with the same primary focus as the last: that of the detectives themselves more than the case they investigated. McConaughey and Harrelson ate up every scene they were in. Both of the new guys have that ability too.

Wolfshades

Yeah but re-purposed electrical cords being used in an isolated environment? Nope. Doesn't pass muster.
