Did You Know?


When they are interviewing Frederick Barnes's old research assistant, she says about Barnes (Robert Sean Leonard), "Frederick was obsessive. Every research problem was like a puzzle that He had to solve". That quote is easily a nod to and perfect description of House M.D. (2004)'s Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), the best friend of Dr. James Wilson (played by Leonard). See more »

Holy Lord what a bunch of weak pieces of crap we have defending our country
5 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I put up with this bottom sucking show for six whole episodes. I should get some kind of medal for that. Each episode, the so called "good guys" get weaker and weaker, and more and more pathetic. You begin to wonder if they really have any sort of training at all. They cannot defeat any enemy whatsoever without the help of a criminal stringing them along. Every fight they get into, they WILL lose. Bottom line.

These people suck at fighting crime. These people suck at hand-to-hand combat. These people seriously suck at having the nads to stand up to the bad guys. If I were the main character on this show, I would walk into the ocean and let the sharks chew me up and crap me out for the other bottom feeders to devour.

This episode was the final straw. The useless main character chases the bad guy out of the courthouse. The bad guy threatens to kill a hostage. The useless, weakling main character pretends she's not a coward and tells him she will shoot, which we all know is a lie because she's a useless, worthless, weakling coward. So naturally as soon as the bad guy starts counting, she screams out in her dire and infinite cowardliness, "OK, OK, you win, I'm a big giant weak coward and you can do whatever you want. You win, please please please let me continue to live as a big useless coward."

At that moment, I realized this is not the show for me. I'll leave this show to cowards and weaklings who enjoy this crap. I never wanted to watch this show again. I can't STAND weak babies who give in to the bad guys whenever they have a chance. The people who made this show should find another career. Look in the classifieds for "coward baby." That's what your'e good at.
