Awesome, intense, intelligent show
3 May 2014 | by sajeffeSee all my reviews

After the first episode, I thought it was a keeper. Having watched the 2nd episode, I have high hopes that the show will succeed. I like intelligent shows. This is an intelligent show. It's very intense though, so I'm afraid it might go the way of Mind Games. Which is too bad. We need more shows focused on smart issues like neuroscience/psychology instead of more shoot 'em up cop shows.

The "Black Box" is the brain. Coincidentally, Black is also the last name of our heroin, a neurologist with bipolar disorder that she hides from her workplace. Already, the first two episodes are packed with drama - workplace, familial, and therapeutic.

Oh, and one more thing. The music is fantastic and done fantastically.

Congratulations to Amy Holden Jones (creator and writer) and her cast and crew. Good luck!
