Review Caroline Preece 9 Jan 2014 - 07:00

Is new CBS sci-fi series, Intelligence, simply Chuck without the laughs? Here's Caroline's review of the pilot...

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 Pilot

Intelligence, the new CBS series starring Josh Holloway as a volatile government agent with a chip in his head, will inevitably be compared to Chuck. So, getting it out of the way, how does it compare to Chuck? Not favourably. Once you get past the shock that CBS – a Us network that has previously treated genre telly with outright disdain – has made a show with any sci-fi shadings at all (I blame Under the Dome), it becomes clear that this is just another bland procedural with a familiar face, strident patriotic stance and an uninteresting soon to be will they/won’t they partnership at its core. It’s Chuck without the laughs, or the interesting characters.
