I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a TV show spin off of a movie, but if they are consistent to this show I would love to see more! Now, it has been about five years since I have seen the movie of the same name, which helps, but is by no means necessary. The premise is simple really. Powerful drug that makes you unlock the rest of your brain (like Lucy but not stupid). Brian Finch starts taking said drug and is immune to the drugs side effects when no one else is so he starts working for the FBI. The cool little twist is that Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper from the movie) is basically black mailing him. Giving him a shot so the side effects don’t effect him and having him infiltrate the FBI. It’s an awesome tie-in and overall arc that I’m excited about!.. When you really break this show down though its just a crime show. Its more fun, and I like they way the play with Brian Finch’s genius and present it quite a bit! But, either way, at the center of it all it is just another crime show. Which is OK when they are original and interesting like this and Backstrom!.. As for the actors, I honestly have no clue who Jake McDorman is but he is good. Reminds me a lot of Bradley Cooper and I think that is what they were going for. Bringing Jennifer Carpenter on was great. Perfect for the role, fun to watch, and I already see her as a cop!..If you want to watch a well written yet funny and original crime show (plus all the other cool stuff I said) this is where you go!
