I like the idea of the show, and most of each episode is pretty decent, but then the story ends up revolving around some ridiculously engineered plot point, which gets the team closer to the action than they should be. The writers should watch a few episodes of Chuck - they knew how to do that without it seeming so forced.
The show is of an enthralling team of specialized genius young adults as they protect United States defense interests. I believe that most would find the story very entertaining as it is well rounded with action, drama, and romance.
I have not had good experience with liking shows from C.B.S. in the past. They have a long history of failing to support show show past a first season, except cookie cutter formulas an unfathomably inhuman faction in their corporation seems to favor.
The writers seem to comprehend the difficult for people to communicate across an intelligence gap. I feel compelled to mention that I believe that this is rare; Too many published stories mirror the writers own persona instead of being unique. Letting that distract me from enjoying shows is something I avoid, though it is nice to see something different.
Intelligence is only an ability to see patterns and solve problems. The nan brain processes wisdom, skill, and experience completely different.
The protagonists are very liberty oriented and distrustful of the government they reluctantly agree to work with. For once, the reluctance fails to come from the government thugs threatening criminal processing.
Instead the protagonists form their own company that is contracting to the government. Though the first episode shows the government paying them individually they are treated as a team. Thus I hope the writers and producers continue with the idea of their company accepting a 'contract' with the government instead of them becoming actual government employees.
Those who have worked for the government know there IS a difference. Companies are a more evolved and more nan friendly version of letting government employees form actual unions.
A negative perception is something I play against, thus I seem to enjoy most shows on the big and silver screen. An almost eager approach at tearing a piece a part, is an attitude I see to often. Thus I like to offer a different point of view with a bit more detail than "I loved it". That is great but it skips actually helping another decide if they may like it too, or not.
Thank you for sharing your Force; And, may the Goddess bless you.
I really loved this show. I thought the premise was very interesting and had a lot potential. I looked forward to watching it each week. The show was filled with suspense, action, romance, comedy, knowledge and all kinds of genre. Apart from the cases they work on every episode, there are deep connections between the team and every character is well built. You can even learn some things about science, math and things like human psychology and behavior. There are some episode that made me tear up and scenes that had me laughing out loud. I enjoyed the chemistry between the characters. The characters, the humor, the action and comedy of the episodes made this entertaining to watch. I really did not like the ending it was terrible. i think they should give a proper ending to the series. They need to tie up all the loose ends. The series and show as a whole feels unfinished. I thought it was exciting, fun and just amazing. I loved watching the team grow stronger and closer over the series, its just a shame they completely ruined everything in the last episode, destroying everything we'd come to love and then ditching the series.
I am still on the first season, so reviewing only this part of the show. So far I love it. Crime solving dramas are one of the favourite types of show for me. And genius characters make it even better. In Criminal Minds Reid is my favourite character, so probably not surprising that I love Scorpion. :)
