Good but bogs down towards the end
23 February 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

They picked the best for the first episode and that is a shame as it sets such a high standard. Then it seems to went downhill a bit - albeit not a steep curve.

The genre is crime. Each episode shows a difficult case that police encounters and needs the help of a physics professor. Most involve some scientific explanation - not necessary physics related. Actually formulaic in some sense but above average. But the last 2 episode seems like the writer ran out of ideas and drop the details of the science. And that's a bit disappointing.

As even with shows like Aboui(sp)cop team, it is very consistent quality (but somewhat too consistent). So do you like consistency to a point of almost routinely boring or roller coaster ride that when on the lows, can be really pedestrian ??? But see Gonzo and you can't compare. If Gonzo is a 9 then this is a 7. Most others in the genre are 6 or 5.
