redfiona99: (Thinking)
Because I get bored, I was reading online comments about NCIS: New Orleans and people complaining that they had more characters visiting from the original NCIS than NCIS: LA ever had. To me it's obvious why. Donald Belisario actually understands his international audience a lot more than a lot of other US showrunners. Because New Orleans's rep as being a bit different from the rest of the US hasn't percolated through to popular culture in other countries as much as you might expect and the basic gist of NCIS: NO is more or less the same as original flavour, while NCIS: LA at least has its own gimmick.

I was reminded of this when I caught part of an episode of Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour. Because I don't get its purpose. What stories does it tell that couldn't be told by Criminal Minds Original Flavour? And if that's the case, there's no reason for people to watch it.

(This is not a diss against Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour because yay Forest Whittaker on my TV and I fell for Prophet something chronic within half an episode. I'm still not sure what Matt Ryan's accent is supposed to be, mind you.)
