Love the McCormack
13 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Dr. Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack) is a neuroscientist professor who suffers from hallucinations including an old passing acquaintance Natalie Vincent (Kelly Rowan). His loyal assistant Max Lewicki (Arjay Smith) helps him in teaching as well as his life. Paul Haley (LeVar Burton) is the college dean and long time friend. FBI agent Kate Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook) recruits him for his special knowledge and then Assistant U.S. Attorney Donnie Ryan (Scott Wolf) who also happens to be her ex-husband takes over her cases.

I really like McCormack in this role and RLC is surprisingly good as a cop. It's getting a little bit of a trope to have a tiny woman as a tough cop but she's pretty good at it. The addition of Wolf didn't hurt but wasn't that big of a help either. It definitely threw cold water on any budding romantic chemistry between Pierce and Moretti. That's perfectly fine but the show never truly gave another viable romantic partner for Pierce. Also Pierce keeps going off leaving people behind which gets a little old. The show works a bit better as a cop procedural. The personal stuff is a little clunky but I did like the section with the real Natalie Vincent. The show ends with a cliffhanger of the Moretti Ryan wedding.
