I stand by my pan. Every character is one-dimensional and clichéd and the tech is a strange combination of ho-hum and silly. Genius is not synonymous with social awkwardness or in Walter's case, raging egotism.

The only saving grace was the preposterous airplane v. sports car scene, which was well executed despite being absurd.

Loved this show! Was such a great variation and new storyline. Again Sidereel reviewer was way off base on the pan! Maybe she didn't like that the story shows people that are a little different and unique, but I feel that is the best part of the show. I hope the writers keep writing this show as it should be, with suspenseful turns, and good drama.

First time actually writing a review, but I couldn't resist... I don't care if this series is based on a true story or not but wow.... the pilot was amazing.... it was like watching an action movie in 40 minutes... can't wait to watch the rest...

Hollywood does tend to reuse content...it definitely is part Big Bang Theory, part Leverage, etc. This show isn't all that, but I've enjoyed every episode. The networks renewed it for another season, so it can't be that bad.

Cool new show with great potential. Kinda like big bang theory, only with more diversity and more drama. Really excited for where the show is going.

This is an entertaining show with lots of action, suspense and humour to keep viewers hooked and I can't wait to see what they come up with next (I binged on the entire first half of Season 1 in less than a day and I'm now in withdrawal)!

I admit it isn't the best show out there as some scenes are weak particularly when combined with the eccentricities but I feel like this show has alot to offer with the elevated crime/drama aspect and the crazy scientific mumbo-jumbo that us 'normals' don't get, but somehow that still makes it all the more intriguing!

I do find the social traits of some of the smarter characters disconcerting but I guess that's to be expected (it's not everyday that I come into contact with highly intellectual individuals with a series of anxieties). I think it's good that the show also focuses on their struggles to deal with fears and being different, and gives viewers an insight into what it might be like for people like them in reality.

This show is what Chuck should have been, with some The Big Bang Theory thrown in.

For a show about smart people, it's incredibly stupid. Walter O'Brien clearly didn't lend his brain when they were writing the show.
"The plane's flying too fast for wifi. We'll have to driver underneath it and connect a network cable" - said no one ever

The story line isn't entirely new... we've seen it before - awkward geniuses solve crimes with the help of someone "normal" to translate, but there's something about the way that they pull it off - the acting or the writing maybe - that makes it feel new. I love the characters. Perhaps in the first episode they feel a bit one-dimensional, but it takes time to build a character. I think this series has huge potential.
