I've watched 2.5 episodes and am all done. I agree with most posters here about the flat acting and poor chemistry, but am willing to forgive it, hoping for improvement as the show goes on. Wanted to give them time to "gel" with each other.
It's the crazy leaping of logic that makes it hard to watch. They go from A to B too glibly and too quickly to be realistic. Last night's episode had a cashier vaguely describe the unsub, with behavior characteristics that did NOT match the characteristics the team created and yet the whole story moved forward as if this random guy, who happened to be in the same store as the unsub and who was described differently than the profile was absolutely positively the unsub with zero discussion or doubt. Just a stupid, stupid show. May as well be watching Monk for all the lack of suspense and intrigue.
It's too linear, it's too flat and the flashback sequences are too choppy, short and usually unrelated to the profiling.
If you are looking for a thinking person's show like Criminal Minds, this is not it.… Expand
