We were watching the season premiere of the The Big Bang Theory and I saw the promos for a new show Scorpion, which would come on after.  It didn't look too bad so I decided to watch and see if it was any good.

I liked the overall concept.  I mean, a group of genius hackers -- what's not to like?

Yes, the first mission was a bit "over the top", but it's a TV show so what else do you expect.  I'm also not too sure about the casting they did for the roles, but the main character seemed a better fit at the end of the show.

I did enjoy it though, and I'll watch a few more to see how it goes.  Did anyone else watch it?

You can view the first episode here.

I liked the show, somewhat different from the norm.

Recorded it, but haven't watched it yet. Looking forward to giving it a try.

Same here.   As a software engineer myself, it looked interesting.

Different twist then many of the shows. I'm going to watch it again for sure. (if I remember)

Now we have a nice looking girl added in. Always need one of those.

interesting twists...

The interaction with the kid was the only good part, I think. The conversations with the crew were just poorly written, and how ridiculous was the last scene? Also, because it's an american show, I predict the beautiful but struggling single mother will develop into the main character's love interest in 3...2...1...

I usually give a new program 20 minutes to catch my attention. This show got me in 5. I love mindless entertainment, especially with what is going on in our world.

Anyone seen "Madam Secretary"? NOT BAD!

Yes I saw Madam Secretary, I liked it.

yeah...

promising idea... but the writing was sooo corny was laughable... and the delivery.... well...

The main character probably has a greater IQ than the sum total of the show's targeted audience.

Mindless drivel.

Dead giveaway? ....6.30 PM timeslot on a Sunday.

And to think I paused season 6 of SOA ......

^^^ Agreed Jafo.  Although it was SUITS not SOA that was paused over here! 

 

 

Oh and since it was mentioned in this thread, two shows (while not in exactly the same vein as 'Madame Secretary') whose production value, writing and acting I find far superior would of course be House of Cards, and the quirky but also superbly written/acted (imo) Covert Affairs.

and the quirky but also superbly written/acted (imo) Covert Affairs.

Yes....that was an odd one....had the potential to be corny and crap....but some how got it right instead....

The premise of each episode is just ludicrous to almost be sci fi. It's almost like a light Fringe. Strangely, I find myself anticipating the next episode...

I enjoyed the second episode.  They are making a stretch in the missions, but it's just been fun to watch for me.
