Scorpion pilot - My Review
This team of masterminds is codenamed Scorpion, which includes O'Brien, one of the smartest persons in the world with a 197 IQ and his friends (as Agent Gallo describes them), Sylvester Dodd, a "human calculator" dealing in statistics, Happy Quinn, a "mechanical prodigy" and Toby Curtis, a "world-class shrink" (a Harvard-trained behaviorist). Paige Dineen is a former waitress whose interaction with people translates the real world to them; they, in exchange, translate her young mentally gifted son, Ralph, to her.
Here's the description of the pilot episode... Special agent Cabe Gallo forms a new team of super geniuses, hiring former child prodigy Walter O'Brien to lead a team of his brilliant friends. They are assigned their first mission by the government to help land airplanes at LAX when the entire communication system shuts down due to a bug in an automatic software upgrade at the control tower. They meet a waitress named Paige, a mother of a genius child, with whom they instantly connect.
Though the critics are mixed on it the viewers are not and Scorpion did extremely well in the ratings. Let's hope it can hold on to those ratings for future episodes. Speaking of future episodes... I can't wait for episode 2. I think I'll go watch episode 1 again.
