There's' a brain alright.. but kind of flashy brain and mock sicence
3 November 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Yet another crime/mystery Japanese series. And it's got all money shot in this one. The facility the computer equipment, holograms .. and not to mention the top rated star in the role of the professor.

I can't remember the cases now (saying something), but recollect that they are not bad. And there's one near the end that is well choreographed using the large set but simple "perception" resolution.

Compared to a more recent show call "Lady" - where each case involves mind twisted psychopaths, this is less demonic and has more variety. Compare to "Control" (same year as Lady), control has more..hehmmmmm contorl - it is more understated (espeically the ending), while more pedestrian in a sense - not flashy. So this Mr. Brain for me it's not mediocre, but yet not great. For me, greatest one I've seen is Gonzo - my all time favourite in the crime/mystery genre. Unlike Galeleo which started exceptionally but ended badly, Mr Brain gets marks for consistency. Albeit consistent mediocrit.

Albeit the version I saw has crystal clear HD and that does add to the appeal - somewhat. The love interest ironically also serves as comedic relief - this part I'm not figuring out the need.
