In late September 2014, The Wrap 's journalist Jason Hughes reviewed the pilot episode of the series, praising the music, the use of the city of New Orleans, and CBS' decision to cast Scott Bakula as "one of the most likable leading men in television, so they're set there."
David Hinckley of the New York Daily News gave a mixed but critical review of the pilot episode, saying there is a "Crescent City flavor here. But in the larger picture, not much on this menu is unfamiliar."Liz Shannon Miller and Ben Travers of Indiewire said that NCIS is like "the obelisk in 2001: A Space Odyssey, it's an awe-inspiring, inescapable presence in the broadcast line-up. NCIS on CBS: It is here. It has always been here. It forever will be."
In April 2019, CBS released the plot of the first part of the show's fifth season's finale, "The River Styx, Part I", which is set to partially take place in the breakaway republic of South Ossetia, a region internationally recognized as part of Georgia but also recognized as independent by Russia, Nauru, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Syria. The show, when describing the region, calls South Ossetia a "war-torn Russian province", which raised concerns from the Georgian government. On April 22, 2019, Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili posted on Twitter.
An upcoming episode of @NCISNewOrleans set to feature #Georgia's 'South Ossetia' as a "Russian province" is troubling. This synopsis mistake is irresponsible and we call on @CBS and the show's writers to respect Georgia's territorial integrity and make the necessary changes.
Neither CBS nor the show's producers have responded to the President's commentary. However, the description of the second part of the finale, "The River Styx, Part II" does not mention Russia, although the episode still takes place in South Ossetia.
