Ex-con fraudster Ross Edwards starts a business with his manic-depressive brother Clark, offering his brilliant insight in the human psyche to manipulate 'anyone anywhere any time'. Due to Clark's insistence on spontaneous early disclosure and physical clumsiness, their first sales pitch is a humiliating disaster. So the budding firm's business boy Miles agrees their only chance is to win credibility by taking a pro-bono case, notably a boy whose medical insurance refuses to pay for experimental therapy. Clark's daring plan to stage a fake abuse rescue borders several crimes, and it still only gives 30% chance to switch the key executive's mindset, but Clark comes up with a more businesslike final mind game.

Shaming Corporations into doing the right thing
27 February 2014 | by (california) – See all my reviews

Not really what I expected but I saw it through. I love Steve Zahn and he plays this character well. It seems kind of like Leverage on a psychological level, without the 'action'. I always give new shows 3 episodes to convince me that I should keep watching/dvr-ing. Not to sure about the other casting. This first episode didn't give a clear impression of chemistry between Zahn and Slater and especially Everett. I do like the idea of 'shaming' large corporations into doing the right thing. They play dirty all the time its about time someone tries to turn the tables on them. It will be interesting to see, in future episodes, how these two brothers pull this off again. Hopefully with a few arrogant individuals as well as a few more corporations. The time spot may be a bit of a challenge for the show being placed against Chicago Fire and Person of Interest, that's hard competition. So its wait see right now.
