A super reliable source told me that only 7 episodes are going to air.
In principle, CBS can "burn off" the remaining episodes during the summer.

If it's really bad, then can realease the final episodes on line, which has happenedf or some of Network TV's worst mistakes, like the Cape.

It took me three years to see the last half of The Ex List, ditto for the last three episodes of Eastwick, but with patience comes... Old age and a spare tire for a gut.

Re: "Intelligence" season 1 discussion & spoilers (Josh Holloway)

It will be intresting to see what the ratings are after the DVR+3 numbers are added in. Given the compitition at it's time slot, I don't doubt that quite a few folks set the DVR and watched it later.

Re: "Intelligence" season 1 discussion & spoilers (Josh Holloway)

I have all thirteen episodes, and have done for years.

But you could just mean that you haven't the time to look for or view them.

But the thing about Choas is that it was aired RIDICULOUSLY out of order.

(Use Wikipedia to figure out the real viewing order.)

New Characters where introduced several episodes after they had been in play.

The network is an ass.

DVR-watcher here, finally watched last night.
WOW - very good, emotionally-charged episode. Much more gripping than the pilot. I'm in.

Re: "Intelligence" season 1 discussion & spoilers (Josh Holloway)

So, anyone want to take any bets on whether Sawyer2.0s wife is actually dead or not? Points in favor of her surviving are that they gave her the classic TV non-death cutaway (if you didn't see it, it didn't happen), and she's a pretty prominent "hey, it's her, what's her name..." (Zuleikha Robinson) actress to just waste on one episode. Points against are that that was a pretty huge explosion and it happened only seconds after Chuck and Sarah leapt to safety through the window. However, Johnny Mnemonic and Dark Angel did leap through glass and fall ten stories into water without a scratch on them or internal injuries, so clearly Dr. Phlox has used his encounter with the Borg to turn humanity into sturdier lifeforms in this universe, in addition to giving them cybernetic brain implants.

Was this crap financed by the NSA?

I don't usually comment on tv shows I don't watch, but after watching the first episode I felt insulted enough by the nonsense on screen that I had to say this.

Re: "Intelligence" season 1 discussion & spoilers (Josh Holloway)

Days ago, ABC cancelled the Assets after 2 episodes, albeit, The Assets was only an 8 part miniseries.

Why hasn't CBS got the balls to do what needs to be done?

What else are they going to air at that hour opposite Blacklist and Castle? They had a Monday night juggernaut in CSI: Miami and moved it to Sunday. How well was Five-0 doing in that time slot?

Besides, CBS can afford to keep low-rated fare on for a bit longer than ABC can.

Re: "Intelligence" season 1 discussion & spoilers (Josh Holloway)

Remember when reruns of TNG was out preforming new episodes of Stargate Universe?

ABC is replacing The Assets with reruns of Sharktank, I'm sure that CBS must have something just as cheap and nasty that's gold in even rerun ratings... The problem is that advertising was sold for an action drama that would appeal to te 25 to 35 crowd, the suits even probably pitched Intelligence as the new lost because it's got that guy from lost in it, so it will make Lost Numbers...

There are massive penalties for pulling a show, and bad faith, especially if the replacement show targets the wrong demographics which makes it useless to clients.

Re: "Intelligence" season 1 discussion & spoilers (Josh Holloway)

I enjoyed the second episode. Muslim groups should approve of the way the female agents wore scarves in the mosque. Gotta pay respect to the religion of peace. Delta Force vets, on the other hand, will be embarrassed at how Gabriel struggled to take down the Phalanx office bomber.

Now that Gabriel's wife is out of the way (and yes, she's really dead), Gabriel and Riley can hit the sheets in the not too distant future. They'll get past their issues. Maybe it'll happen in Season 3, assuming the show lasts that long. Any bets?

Re: "Intelligence" season 1 discussion & spoilers (Josh Holloway)

Of course they had to put the "she really was good" caveat at the end by warning about the bomb.

Really stupid ending to a kind of pointless episode. Build up the mystique of his old flame only to have it end like that, no explanation and then a whitewashing?

Nah.
