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

Wifey didn't need to swallow the explosives to get into the hospital. So I don't believe she did. She tipped Gabriel to clear the place, and faking her death is her exit strategy so she can disappear without Gabriel looking for her.

Gabriel will hook up with his babysitter, and that is when wifey will return.

I just don't think the show will last that long.

Also, I think the CIA dropped the ball with wifey. She admitted to Gabriel that she had trouble 'coming back' from her undercover assignments. Shouldn't psych evaluations have detected this, listed her as a risk on those assignments and reclassified her?

They make the CIA look like real idiots who screwed up and created their own problem with her.

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

I have to say, 1x03 was a pretty decent episode. No yelling or melodrama and we got a good dose of Mei Chen in action. She's pretty effective as Gabriel's counterpart. She exceeded my expectations. Dangerous, disturbingly sociopathic and they even gave her the added dimension of being an alluring temptress who has a thing for our hero.

It was also nice to see Amos again. His story is moving pretty quickly. In with the bad guys then out in 3 episodes. How long 'til he gets that immunity deal?

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

After seeing tonight's episode I came to the same realization I had with Seven Days. The main character is a messenger. Why is he going outside the lab at all? His ability has no real need to visit the locations to be effective. It's the same issue with Frank from Seven Days. All he really should have been doing is backstepping and providing whatever future information he has. No need to be going on adventures himself.

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

I am really enjoying the show. The story is interesting and the character moments seem to have real emotion. It is a shame if the show does not last. I think it has a lot of potential.

Episode 3 ratings.

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...tle-up/230668/

Intelligence earned a 1.1 down 8 percent from last week's 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

For reference, last week's final adjusted ratings for episode 2.

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

In light of not so hot ratings, wonder if CBS will just play the rest of the episodes without reruns, over the upcoming Olympics (Feb 6 to 23) and through March.

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

(Not reading above, hald way through the new episode.)

#### YOU INTELLIGENCE!

How the #### can you air an episode called the RETURN of Mei Chen before you have INTRODUCED Mei Chen?

I seriously thought that I was spacing last week and missed this whole plot line.

These ###holes made me doubt my sanity!

How the #### dare they!

This is what happened with Firefly and Crusade. fearful of cancellation, the network ignores linear storytelling to play the most exciting and grabbing episodes first to foul hook the restless audience thinking about making a long cup of coffee and surfing over to reruns of the bachelor.

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

While the title was a bit misleading, dialog in the episode did seem to indicate that this episode was shown in the correct order.

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

Yes this is the episode after his wife died, but that doesn't mean that there were not episodes side stepped between 1 and 2. Didn't you feel the death of the wife happened far too early?

IMDB says that the actress who played Mei Chen is in four episodes. The one that aired yesterday and three others which have not aired. In a couple weeks when we see her first appearance, and Gabby is still talking about looking for his wife who is not yet blown up, I am going to toss my toys.

Did they introduce Phlox? or did he just show up in episode 2? I think he still has an episode coming where he meets every one for the first time.

Seriously this is horrible and insulting, my only excuse for falling for this shit is that I fell asleep for 10 minutes during the middle of the pilot.

Ah, ok, I gotcha. Yeah, there could be episodes that were meant to be shown between 1 and 2.

Mei Chen was in the first episode but she was played by a different actress.

That must have happened when I was sleeping.

If it was a good show, I would have rewound when I woke up.

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

This is a lot better than a lot of the dreck that is on television today, but they lost me with the Mei Chen wanting to have Gabriel's babies thing. Sure, it's probably a mind screw on her part, but it pulled me completely out of it.

Exciting episode this week, but I don't see how murdering a guard while the president buys you time, and having a firefight with soldiers does NOT cause an international incident.
