“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of (or commentary about) websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).
It would appear that CBS has another hit television series in its line-up. For [16.6 million] reportedly watched the pilot episode of [Intelligence] last Tuesday night (01/07/2014).
After seeing some advertisements for the show beforehand, we held some reservations. For it looked like it had potential, but Arlynda and I were concerned with the show going way overboard on the science-fiction stuff.
No, it did not help a bit that the primary star of the show is [Josh Holloway], who played Sawyer on [LOST]. For are still reeling from the way that show ended, and we look upon anyone associated with it as probably being scarred for life (or at least having sordid stain upon their soul).
Ah, but we were pleasantly surprised with how well the high-tech stuff was made realistic to us. Furthermore, Holloway seems to be not suffering any ill-effects from LOST.
Some might even argue that Holloway’s Gabriel on Intelligence is not so unlike his Sawyer on LOST. For Sawyer was a highly intelligent tough guy with a jagged edge to his heart of gold, and so is Gabriel.
[Marg Helgenberger’s] Lillian Strand may be problematic, however. For Lillian is portrayed as being a government agency director who generally looks at her people as simply being different parts of the machine (so to speak).
Nonetheless, Lillian’s cold analysis is buffered by Riley Neal, who is a Secret Service agent brought in to protect Gabriel from all who would do him harm—including himself. The role of Riley is well-played by [Meghan Ory], and I would not be surprised to see some romantic sparks flying between her and Gabriel—despite her desire to help him find his missing wife. Hey, you know how those Hollywood-types operate.
You can see for yourself just how far off I may be at 9:00 (Central) tonight. Mondays is when the show is scheduled to regularly air. We will be watching, and I hope you find the show as enjoyable as we have so far.
