Jul 31, 2020David Schwimmer as a tough guy secret agent? MI6 as a bunch of milquetoast betas? Huh? What a terrible idea. Was this supposed to be Archer meets Big Bang Theory? It fails.
Dryly funny, rude in a polite way, restrained even when it gets grotesque or slapstick, the show is kept from brittleness by the fretful, the hangdog — the Ross — that Schwimmer’s character hides inside, and his growing dependence on Nick Mohammed’s sweet, slow, hero-worshiping computer analyst.
Schwimmer is what he is: calculatedly awkward and not all that funny when Jerry is blustering and oddly disarming when Jerry is vulnerable, which isn’t often. “Intelligence” is mild tea overall, but it’s an easy binge at just over two hours for its six episodes.
There are laughs here and there through all six episodes, mostly courtesy of the show’s creator, but it’s overall too familiar and too bland to stand out in the increasingly crowded streaming world.
