I completely enjoyed the "McGyver" and "A-Team" type shows of the 80's and am OK having more shows like them. I watch shows like that as entertainment and to escape - not as documentaries - so I'm OK with suspending a little reality. However, that being said, the Scorpion writers could stand using a consultant or two - especially for the tech and psychobabble. Entertainment is better if you don't have to fight quite so hard to get past the flaws (think ER). Here are my 2 biggest issues:
1: For an uber-brilliant dude who can't fit into society Walter has too many flashes of "TV drama hero" (think the firefighters on Chicago Fire, or even DiNozzo from NCIS). If he feels he must emulate someone like that he should think at least a little more like NCIS's McGee instead! The problem with coming on after Big Bang is the audience may have a tendency to think of "Sheldon" when relating to an incredibly smart person with social issues and Walter is not Sheldon. But neither is he a seasoned agent/officer/criminal investigator. BBT moving back to Thursday's may help a little in that aspect but they need to help Walter find his own character and fit.
2: Happy's voice. I can't stand listening to that woman speak. That character and set of skills could be filled in so many different ways, why her? I understand the need to give Paige (our "normal" character) another female to bond with - so go get a different actress.
Mostly, the writers need to use more consultants and we need to allow the group to gel and the show to grow (and please God, make them stop saying how smart they are all the time - we get it!). Give it a full season or two - some of the best shows out there were slow starters.… Full Review »
This show is entertaining. It's not trying to be dramatic or intense, It's just plain fun to watch.
Sure, the special effects aren't the best and the lines tend to be a bit cheesy, But to be honest, That's what I enjoy about it.
Every time I recommend this show to someone I always tell them that to enjoy this show you have to keep an open mind, This show isn't like The Walking Dead, And it's not trying to be.
Z Nation is a simple yet entertaining show about Zombies, It's a great show to watch if you want something Lighthearted, Will make you laugh and still has some action.… Full Review »
I discovered Doctor Who when it revamped in 2005, only deciding to check it out because I had liked Christopher Eccleston in "Gone in 60 Seconds." From there I was hooked. Didn't know about the regeneration thing, so when his head went up in flames and turned into David Tennant's, I freaked out. I figured that the show would be ruined. But I thought I'd give him a chance and I LOVED him....even more! Then when it happened again and Matt Smith's head replaced Tennant's, I was like "who is this goofball? I'm gonna HATE him!" But sure enough, Matt Smith became my favorite Doctor.
Then when I heard Smith was leaving and Peter Capaldi was announced as his replacement I was SO disappointed, not because he was a lot older but because he was well known. Even by me, an American. The great thing about the past two actors playing the Doctors were that they WERE them. They weren't actors I'd seen in other stuff just playing another role. They became the Doctor because they were never anyone else for me. But Capaldi has been in a bunch of other things. And watching him in the new season I can't look past the ACTOR playing the CHARACTER. I'm trying to enjoy him, but I can't watch without constantly looking forward to the day when a new Doctor will be picked.… Full Review »
