As a psychologist, I found this show EXTRA special. It amuses me when I understand what Dr. Pierce is saying, and I try to find the diagnosis before he does. This show is great!

Love shows about men who have brilliant minds, but also have issues with existing in the real world. A Beautiful Mind meets Sherlock and Detective Monk. Really clever.

This show is so well written and the acting is superb. Love this show. Eric McCormack's performance is exceptional. There needs to be more dialogue and awareness of mental health issues in this country. McCormack's character proves that with support of loved ones, friends, and one's work environment, a mentally challenged person can have a good productive life.

The more I watch this show, the more I love it.

A different approach to solving mysteries. It's hard to come up with a new concept that hasn't been done to death (pardon the unintended pun).

I treat myself to an episode here and there since I have such a limited number of them.

While every episode follows a rather predictable format, - beginning and ending with a lecture from Dr. Pierce relevant to the case of the week, - I really like this show. While the premise might be slightly unbelievable, the cases are almost always interesting and through fiction presents us with the very real mysteries of the brain. That's what keeps me watching.
I have very few complaints about this show, (Dr. Pierce seems to function extraordinarily well in his classroom, compared to - well - the rest of the world), I like the direction of the show. It's easy to watch because it's a case-of-the-week style show and, while others might disagree, I like where the interpersonal relationships are going, although *SPOILERS* I'm worried about Kate and Donnie's relationship. I want them to be together, and it was going really well for a while, but with the wedding coming up it feels a lot like Kate might get cold feet. While I suspect a lot of viewers would like to see Kate and Dr. Pierce together, I don't. The introduction of Donnie as a series regular tells me that the showrunners might be serious about Kate/Donnie, and I hope they stick to that. Breaking them up and keeping Donnie on the show seems like a remarkably ill-thought out thing to do.
But enough 'shipping. This is a good show and if you like cop-shows which display intelligence (honestly, I can't tell you whether the show gets it's facts right, but it doesn't really matter), this is definitely the show for you.
