Look, there’s our house!

Last night’s episode of NCIS New Orleans was terribly exciting, no? I don’t mean the plot or the atrocious accent of that one guy (HUH?) or just the typical New Orleans cliches they threw at us, but MY STREET!

Just for fun, a few screen shots from the episode, next to the photos I took while they filmed…

My view: The gray SUV that carries NCIS people (I guess) screeches into the driveway of the “coroner’s office”!

My view: People run out of the building, away from the gunman! (Then they stood in our driveway.)

My view: Scott Bakula and other randoms run to help the security guard who got himself shot!

Okay, that’s enough. You get the idea.

One more screen shot, where you can see our house! And our garbage cans! And a tiny bit of my van! And my neighbor’s house/coffee shop!

Well, I think we’ve proved that my block makes a great place to film things. Now if anyone just needs a cute 7 year old boy and some spares, have your people call my people!

NCIS New Orleans

Watch tonight! It’s the episode they filmed in front of my house last month. You might catch a glimpse of something from one of these scenes… (spoiler alert?)

Those are mostly pictures I took from my desk, so the action was really close. It was cool to see how everything is done, but I also got pretty jaded towards the end.

“Yawn, there goes Scott Bakula again.”

(Look, my mom loved Quantum Leap when I was growing up. This is exciting stuff to have the star on my sidewalk!)

Anyway. Look out for the coffee shop – that’s really my next door neighbor’s living room.
