I liked the pilot even though the show doesn't really offer anything new to the genre. The set-up is similar to Castle or Bones or any other number of shows where a cop is teamed up with a civilian. Though, to be fair, the main character, Dylan, did used to be CIA so he is qualified to do this type of work.
What made this enjoyable was Alan Cumming. He was fantastic as Dylan Reinhart. I also appreciated that the episode didn't downplay that he was gay and married. I figured it would hinted at but almost never shown. I was wrong.
My guess is Dylan lying to Andy about working with the police will come back to bite him in this butt.
I liked Lizzie, even if her back story is kind of cliche at this point.
Seeing Whoopi Goldberg was so much fun. I love her and it's nice to see her acting again and not just on The View.
The serial killer aspect was nice. You could at least see where he was coming from, giving justice to people who escaped it. I think it's a motivation most people can understand without endorsing it.
Do clubs really have Rob Lowe nights? That seemed random.
Maybe it's because I don't do drugs nor do I frequent clubs but accepting a drug you've never heard of from a random stranger in the men's restroom just doesn't seem like the best idea.
I did think it was a little far fetched that two of the victims knew each other and were sleeping together.
Here's the listing for tonight's episode:
"Wild Game" - Although Dylan has returned to teaching, Lizzie calls upon his expertise with profiling sociopaths to assist with a bizarre case in which a venture capitalist was murdered and his body ritualistically displayed.
