Hard to judge a spinoff from just a 50 mn episode. These types of episodes tend to suffer because the time has to be split between the regular NCIS cast and introducing new characters. The "brother" thing was a little annoying. I loved the scene where Pride tosses the lobbyist over the car. I think the spinoff has potential, primarily from the New Orleans setting. Having the New Orleans party atmosphere in the background will make the show different and fun. The reveal of a copy cat serial killer gave the episode a lot of potential. I definitely like Brody. She is smart, attractive with a tough edge.
