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

How dare you say that I have an opinion! You will bend to my will. It is awful, And you will admit that Intelligence is awful, slightly before it's cancellation after 7 awful episodes.

I have spoken.

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

I started zoning out on this almost immediately. Ory is hot, but at no point did I think she was an agent. Holloway was OK, I guess. I liked that he straight up murdered people without hesitation. That was cool. The climax was neat. The fight scenes were decent. The tech is interesting, but oddly employed. Seems like overkill for what he's assigned to do.

These guys would have dropped a nuke to get Bin Laden. If this guy with this tech was real, he would be in a bunker testing it, not running around without a vest getting shot at constantly by random mooks "investigating" shit. And one bodyguard not wearing a vest? Come on. You spent billions on him, but couldn't spring for a couple of competent bodyguards?

The "mystery" of Ory's background was instantly revealed and tossed aside. Why even have it? And the throwaway line about how "she killed four assassins and saved the president's kids while injured" was so fucking dumb. Don't put shit like that in expository dialogue. The opening scene should have been that event: Ory saving the kids from a hit squad. Then go to Holloway doing whatever the fuck it was he was doing wandering through the wilderness.

Holloway's double agent wife was that actress whose name I can never remember, but who keeps popping up in shows and making me not like her at all. Quite a feat, when she was only a still image here.

The "twist" was ... lame. We haven't even finished the first hour and we have a mole...really? Am I watching Alias/24/every secret agent show ever?

I'll give it a couple more chances to see if it actually does something with the premise, but my sense is this will be dead before it finishes the season.

As a plus, it was light years better than Killer Women, which was like watching a show created using a female tv cop cliche rubric. Actually shut that off twenty minutes in. Embarrassing.

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

Little Red Riding Hood? I forgot to look for her, and I doubt I would have recognized her if I did.

The secret service may be able work in several functionalities but it's primary mode is as an army surrounding the president, then as small groups surrounding relatives of the president and former presidents, and then this is the amusing it: Monitoring Counterfeit Currency.

They didn't pick this girl becuase she was Secret Service, becuase she's basically a bee without a swarm, there's more.

The worst possible story idea is that she's his wife who has been give a new face and fake memories and he knows and they're all trying to trick her into falling in love with him again.

Thanks, Professor Obvious, for pointing something out that's obviously going to be explained (and quite well) in the pilot.
You are welcome, Captain Snarky. And I'm sure they had an explanation. But it hardly matters because, I am bored to tears of the main character who is "reckless" and doesn't like "protocol."

Megan Ory's the one who brought me to the show because I've been missing her on Once Upon a Time. I enjoyed it pretty well - nice to see John Billingsley again, I wasn't expecting that. I'll keep watching it.

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

It's got a strong cast of people I like, which is why I tuned in. But yeah, plotwise it ain't much in the way of originality. I'll keep watching for the people, and we'll see where it goes. The first couple of SHIELD eps were crap too.

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

Brutal ratings drop from episode 1 to 2.

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...-slide/229196/

The time period premiere of Intelligence earned a 1.1, down massively from last week's 2.4 adults 18-49 premiere rating, and the largest episode 2 drop of any new program this season.

I figured something like that might happen. Mondays at 10 PM was not a good idea.

Since this isn't a cable show where every episode produced is going to air, it's likely to be pulled quickly. How many episodes before it's gone?

I think we'll get two more.

A super reliable source told me that only 7 episodes are going to air.
