Lakeview joint Pizza Nola — which is making a cottage industry of cheesy New Orleans-based TV screenings in its parking lot — is planning a "gumbo party" tomorrow night for the premiere of CBS' NCIS: New Orleans:

It's the premiere of NCIS:NOLA so of course, we're having a Gumbo Party! Join us Tuesday, September 23, beginning at 7pm as Times Picayune/Nola.com TV correspondent Dave Walker talks about the new Fall TV season. Then, at 8pm, we'll watch the NCIS:NOLA premiere. We'll have free gumbo and $1-off all beer!
The gumbo party, of course, is a flashback to the barely-remembered 2007 TV series K-ville (the K being Katrina), in which one of the lead characters, for some reason, threw a "gumbo party," which of course wasn't a thing at the time but became a brief, ironic fad. I think a gumbo party sounds delicious; my beef with K-ville involved the cop who put Tabasco in his oatmeal.

I guess we'll see if NCIS: New Orleans matches up to K-ville's verisimilitude. The Boston Globe liked it but cited Bakula's "questionable accent" (uh-oh, cher), while The Washington Post gave the whole effort a 'C', calling Bakula a "cayenne-flavored sleuth" and saying it's pretty much "gumbo from a can," and we all know what that's like.

Here's one of the trailers.
