“Technical and Terrible Both Mean Different Things” (Scorpion)

Scorpion (Poster)
A cropped version of the poster for Scorpion.

Scorpion, still in it’s first season, has been going on for a while now. It’s on it’s ninth (or so) episode, and I’m finally doing a post on it, now. Why? I don’t know. I haven’t had much to say about it, which is why most of the the things that could be posts aren’t. But I feel that it deserves something, if anything. So here we are, and what do you know? It’s really not that hard to write about at all.

Back in childhood, Walter O’Brian was a prodigy. He hacked NASA, simply because he wanted the blueprints for his bedroom wall. After getting caught, he works with the government until they and he have a falling out. Now, in the present, he works with a team of genius’s (what’s the plural of genius?) to solve crimes that only they have a handle on.

Despite having one of the worst intros I’ve ever seen on television, Scorpion still rises above my expectations each week. Whether it be criminals kidnapping other criminals, musical murder, Las Vegas (my personal favorite episode), or nuclear fallout, this show never fails to impress. All of the characters are brilliant and fun to be with, and Toby especially never fails to make me smile. Overall, a good start. 8 out of 10.

It may be technical, but I won’t call it terrible for a while. While it may get you (and me) confused at times, stick with it. Scorpion is a great show so far, and it definitely has enough potential to run off of for a while. They need to get rid of that intro, though.
