Scorpion

CBS 2014

Eccentric genius, Walter O'Brien and his team of brilliant misfits comprise the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age. As Homeland Security's new think tank, O'Brien's 'Scorpion' team includes Toby Curtis, an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn, a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd, a statistics guru. Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo, who shares a harrowing history with O'Brien. However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with each other's humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they rely on Paige Dineen, who has a young, gifted son, to translate the world for them, while also helping each other learn how to fit in.

This show is incredibly stupid and bad. But somehow it became a guilty pleasure for me. It's so bad but at the same time in a way that it is entertaining to watch, just not how it was intended to be. This show must have the most plotholes I have ever seen in a TV series. If this wouldn't air on a major network like CBS it'd be cancelled after 3 episodes max despite the really, really low production costs that it must have, I suppose. But since it's on CBS it got a full first season order of BS technobabble making no sense and characters so unlikable and sterile that I don't care for a single person and wonder how they made it through life so far. Not to speak of the positions they literally fell in. Katharine McPhee (Paige, the waitress) is the only exception and good "feature" of this series. Not because she is such a great actress, haven't seen enough of her to judge on that, but being the only halfway reasonable person on this awful cast of awful actors makes her the only likable person, in a way. It's helping that she is cute, too. I could go on and rip the premise and every episode apart and make fun of its absurd plots, terrible reasoning, repetitive and dumb dialogues but others did that already well enough. Although being very nit-picky when it is about technology and terminology, that is basically raped on this show on a regular basis, my biggest pet peeve isn't within the above-mentioned. Surprisingly it is with the blatantly wrong use of HTML syntax in the opening. You have the maincharacter narrating that he has a higher IQ than Einstein and is one of the four people with the highest IQ on earth but it is subtitled with stuff like </starring> following the "stars". Ugh. This contradiction is seriously annoying me and shows the technical and intellectual precision that this show has to offer throughout.

If I had to describe this show in one sentence I would call it a terribly bad narcissistic Walter O'Brien ego-trip.

Show is super campy, but if you get past the rather bad episode 1, then the rest of the season has been pretty alright. If you are even semi-familiar with technology, physics, and the world we live on, then you will know that a lot of what they are talking about isn't true and is suped up hyperbole.

Can a show be bad and brilliant at the same time? Apparently, yes. This show is my guilty pleasure. At times I find myself screaming at the screen something along the lines of "That's not how this works you idiots!" but usually a few minutes later I laugh out loud when I hear Sylvester and Toby arguing over something. The show will not stun you with incredible acting, a complicated storyline or scientific accuracy, but it will surely be a good one if you want to sit in front of your TV and relax.

This show is great if you take it as seriously as the writers of the show do. It's stupid and it's supposed to be. It ends up being hysterical and a lot of fun to watch. We don't have too many silly shows airing now that are enjoyable to watch, but this is one.

A series with a bland cast that leaves no memorable characters and such unrealistic understandings of science you'd think the characters were magicians. Can't take scientific inaccuracies and plot-holes? I suspect you won't like it. If you just want to see smart nerds solve stuff and you can roll with the bad science, bland cast, sub-standard plot, you'll like it.

I both love and hate this show. I LOVE the whole idea/concept of it. It makes me laugh when smart people try to say it's a biography. It's entertainment - a story that was created, then manipulated by the network to try and get the highest amount of ratings to fill the Board's pockets with million dollar incentives for showing up once a month at a board meeting. I hate that the network is either trying to dumb it down for a bigger audience or the actual script words aren't well created. The ideas and concepts are good. Sometimes it feels like the people who make the words in between are in a hurry and really don't care. Big Bang Theory has GREAT scripts and all the words count. I feel with all the great acting talent they have in this show, the quality of words to tell the story needs to come up a bit. The whole "will they or won't they" thing with Walter and Paige has also gotten way too old. Every one of the main story lines they're creating have great merit and would be fine with a little positive sprinkle of Walter and Paige coming together. All the "yes they can, no they can't" is the oldest, most boring plot mechanic in serial TV. I frequently think writers in Hollywood are incapable of writing relationships. Doing the cheap "will they, won't they" just seems lazy. Enough please. Pull up your big boy pants and let Walter and Paige slowly get into a relationship they can both learn to accept and become a role model of relationships for Paige's son. Stop making it about when they're going to jump in bed. This show has a cast well worthy of excellent words and deserves the opportunity to prove how great the show can be.

While I respect other people's opinions about the accuracy and stupid plot holes (pilot ep, not landing the plane manually, etc)... This is a Hollywood entertainment show, with the emphasis on entertainment. So, a) you have to create a crisis b) you have to make up situations that create drama and suspense c) it needs to be exciting If you went down the road of technically correct and 100% realistic, you might as well call it a documentary and cancel the show... because 90% of TV watching people want entertainment and suspense, not realism. I find myself in the following situation. I can call BS on 90% of the stuff in the show, much like pretty much every other successful show(CSI, Fringe, Mentalist, etc) but I don't. It's not SUPPOSE to be real. The reality of Airport control software and how a failure would be handled is boring in real life. The reality of how a biological attack on a senators daughter would be handled is boring to the point of tears The reality of bringing down the Internet, and getting rid of all evidence of an e-mail contents would equally be dull as watching paint dry. I much prefer suspending disbelief (like we do when we watch sci-fi series) and simply enjoying the suspense, action and FICTIONAL plot which does not have to make sense. If that's not something you are capable of, then this show might not be the right fit for you.

According to Hollywood, it's always all up to the good ol' US of A. American heroes always save the day.

Show started out well but quickly jumped off the rails. The fact that the team actually does grunt work is the most ridiculous part. The technology parts are sadly incorrect. The team never did grunt or field work that might have put them in harms way.
