What's wrong with this review?

Mid season review.

It starts off fairly well. The protagonist is very prickly, but her background (history and profession) justifies it, a softer character might actually be harder to relate to all considered.

The show does a fairly decent job in the first couple of episodes of avoiding the 'stupid skeptic' character, but by the third episode is still saying 'I don't believe in this junk', rather than 'OK, but how would that work...?' or 'If this is true we should find evidence of it here...' or in any way acting like a scientist. True, she's a doctor, not a scientist (and yes, they are very different things) but she should be trying to think like one.

Characters are interesting, and might even grow and devlop (or not, it's still early days).
