The Player has an interesting concept, that now that I've seen the pilot, makes a bit more sense than having just read the logline or seen the trailer alone. The show has gotten a little bit of hate for having a ridiculous concept -- but I think it's actually a pretty great concept because it can go so many places -- unlike Orange is the New Black, which can't go anywhere. So The Player is about an ex special forces hotel security guard who becomes a pawn in a larger game orchestrated by a mysterious group of people known as the Gamblers. An equally mysterious organization has an algorithm which can accurately predict crime and they work for the gamblers in allowing them to place bets on either side of a crime. The show revolves around a crime in which the protagonist (Phillip Winchester -- Strike Back) unwittingly becomes the player. It's a bit confusing and hard to follow ,and some of it is a bit hard to believe, but the action is non-stop, the pace is high, the stakes are high, and Phillip Winchester is a great lead. The show feels sort of like Human Target, which was a fantastic show that I miss dearly. Overall, I didn't find the pilot for the player to be AS good as Limitless, Minority Report or Blindspot -- but it was definitely good, and I will for sure be watching it. And you should too.
