Intelligence Season 1 Review “Mei Chen Returns”

Alright, I complained a little about procedurals in my last review, but there’s a reason they work well. So far, though, Intelligenceis failing to tap into the strengths of the format by putting far too much emphasis on long-term storylines. As a result, “Mei Chen Returns” had a lot of material that would’ve worked much better if we had any reason to care about what was going on.

Similar to “Red X,” this was another episode to build off of material from the pilot. This time, though, it was the Chinese agent that had received the second superchip that made her appearance. As it turned out, she had the ability to enter into Gabriel’s renders, making him question what was and wasn’t real. And wouldn’t this material have played better if stretched across the whole season?
