Perception.

No ones talking?

Mentalist lite.

"Potty neuroscientist helps FBI solve crime."

Better than forgettable.

Love Colin Cunningham.

He won't be back.

The casting will be like Joan of Arcadia.

A new actor every week to play an imaginary foil avatar of his subconscious.

The other day on True Blood I got some serious Wonderfalls vibes when inanimate objects were talking to Lafayette...

Is it possible that his conversational delusions might not always be completely human?

Time will tell.

Trying to be like Wire in the Blood but failing oh-so-spectacularly.

Bleh.

^^^Disagree, they're taking off on Touching Evil, especially the US version. The UK version ended up treating Creegan's brain injury more as a way of having him start a job as a neophyte of sorts, rather that rabbiting on and on about improvements to his intellect etc.

Nor is it The Mentalist (which is a House clone.) Procedurally speaking, it's rather more like those profiler shows, The Profiler and Criminal Minds.

Ken Biller from Voyager and Smallville is top dog here. He seems to be real interested in pushing the idea that irrationality is superior to rationality because it's validated by intensity and authenticity of emotion. Perhaps he's the one who tried so hard to turn Voyager into The Twilight Zone.

Ehhhh...a bit too much the USA Network formula, but I'll give it a couple more episodes before dumping it. I like the two leads.

It still freaks me out when he's not wearing his VISOR.

Eric McCormack is a good actor. Rachael Leigh Cook is beyond cute and it's great light Summer tv viewing. It's Summer time so I'm not in the mood for anything all that heavy.

Yes! I keep looking at his eyes like they don't belong.

Loved Kennedy's line, "I enjoy the irony".

It has the potential to be far more interesting than it actually is, but that would require stellar writing.

As it stands, it is watchable, but no Monk (yet).

I'm watching. I like it.

End of season one Eric McCormac wants to leave but the show isn't cancelled... Which is when we find out that teachers aide Liwicky is real solving everything all along, and Daniel Pierce was just one of his hallucinations.
