Scorpion: Season 2

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 9/10/16

This is pretty much like all of the other CBS shows, but with more of a geek edge to it. It has your standard story like "Criminal Minds" or "NCIS" et al. A group of detectives, working for the government or police, stopping criminals, with lots of action. In this show, the detectives or various expert nerds solve problems for Homeland Security. Each of the nerds has their own specialty, such as behavioral psychology or statistics. The characters and their eccentrities are even more important than the problems they solve.

It's an entertaining show, particularly if you can relate to the geeks or nerds, like I can. I know lots of people who like this show. In fact, as I said in my original review, the lead character reminds me a lot of my brother-in-law, who's also a nerd.

I think anyone will enjoy the show or its DVD, though. You don't have to actually be a nerd to like the show, the characters, and the problem-solving.
