    McCormack is brilliant. This is a mix of Monk, the Mentalist and A Beautiful Mind. In response to somebody's criticism that the disorders are too outlandish--you mean too interesting? Would it be that great of a show if the mental disorders were ordinary? It's quirky yet smart, the dialogue is poetic, and the problems are complex yet simple to follow in context. Cook is very likeable and contrary to the opinions of some critics, she is smart and confident in her role. It's a nice break to have youth and excitement along with experience in a head law enforcement role, instead of the stereotypical cold, sarcastic and/or angry narcissist with a control fetish. I hope for many more seasons, and that the pretentious critics don't spoil it for the rest of us. Collapse

    I am really enjoying this show. Yes, it feels a bit ridiculous that an unmedicated, brilliant schizophrenic could be so focused to solve crimes, but hey - this is fiction, right? If you get over that, the method that the show reveals real and imaginary characters in McCormack's world is interesting. The mysteries to be solved are fun to watch and holds my attention.

    People who like procedurals will enjoy playing along. But the real charm of the series--as in a lot of cable originals--is in its ensemble.

    It's an enjoyable enough whodunit. The problem is McCormack. [23 Jul 2012, p.38]

    This reduction of a serious, debilitating illness to a personality quirk would be as unwatchable as it is insulting were it not for one thing: an appealingly disheveled star turn from Will & Grace's Eric McCormack as Daniel.
