INTELLIGENCE Recap: “Mei Chen Returns”

by     Posted 185 days ago

intelligence-slice

For the third week, Intelligence created a story that felt like a finale.  It also completed an arc it started two weeks ago, with the creation of Mei Chen (who, as is plain, returned in this episode).  For a show that seemed like it would be Gabe using his super-chip to solve crimes each week, instead, Intelligence has bogged itself down with emotion.  Last week, “Red X” did an admirable job of establishing — and extinguishing — Gabriel’s relationship with Amelia.  But for the third week, she is still his focus.  When are people going to start kicking ass, and not just in a rendered world with the help of a computer virus?  Hit the jump for why it’s not racism, it’s statistics.

Executive Producers Michael Seitzman, Barry Schindel and Tripp Vinson Talk INTELLIGENCE, Abilities and Limitations of Microchip Technology, and Much More

intelligence-slice

The new CBS dramatic thriller Intelligence tells the story of Gabriel (Josh Holloway), a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain.  As the first human ever to be connected directly into the global information grid, he can hack into any data center and access key intel.  With an elite team, headed by Director Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger), Gabriel and his partner, Secret Service agent Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), fight to protect the United States from its enemies.

To promote the show, executive producers Michael Seitzman, Barry Schindel and Tripp Vinson spoke to a small group of six online writers on the L.A. based set about the dangers of having a microchip like this inside of a human being, what Gabriel’s abilities and limitations are, whether the chip can be used to make him physically stronger, how they’re setting up the series for the long-term, how serialized the show will be versus the procedural aspect, what made them decide to jump right back into the storyline with Gabriel’s wife, why Josh Holloway was the perfect actor for this role, whether there will be flashbacks, and the process for developing the visual aspect for what Gabriel can do.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers

Monday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Briefly:

  • Without The Voice as its lead-in, The Blacklist returned to a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and 9.11 million viewers, which is its lowest rating and smallest audience ever and down seven tenths from its last episode’s 3.2 rating.
  • The new drama series Intelligence dropped massively from its series premiere 2.4 rating to a paltry 1.1 rating and 6.11 million viewers (read Allison’s recap here).  Elsewhere on CBS, an excruciatingly unfunny How I Met Your Mother hit a 3.0 rating and 8.57 million viewers for a rise of three tenths, 2 Broke Girls rose four tenths to a 2.7 rating and 8.93 million viewers, Mike & Molly hit a 2.4 rating and 9.74 million viewers for a two tenths rise, and Mom was up two tenths to a 2.1 rating and 8.46 million viewers.
  • Over on Fox, Almost Human garnered a 2.0 rating and 6.77 million viewers for a rise of two tenths and Sleepy Hollow returned to a 2.2 rating and 6.39 million viewers, matching its last episode’s performance.
  • ABC’s Castle hit a 1.9 rating and 8.95million viewers, up two tenths from last week’s season low, while The CW’s Hart of Dixie ticked up a tenth to a 0.5 rating and 1.3 million viewers and Beauty and the Beast was even with a 0.3 rating and 800,000 viewers.

INTELLIGENCE Recap: “Red X”

by     Posted 192 days ago

intelligence-slice

For better or worse, every episode of Intelligence so far (which makes for a grand total of two) feels like a season finale.  It wasn’t a trait that worked very well for its premiere, where way too many concepts and plots were mashed together with characters we just met, but in “Red X,” the show’s whirlwind pace and high stakes made for a decent hour of television.  “Red X” actually managed to even create a real sense of love and emotion between Gabe and Amelia within just one episode.  But is the show burning through too many plots too quickly?  Hit the jump for why, “it’s only geography.”

To promote the show, actress Meghan Ory spoke to Collider on the L.A. based set for this exclusive interview about how she went from Once Upon a Time (she played Ruby/Red Riding Hood) to Intelligence, her secret desire to be a bad-ass, why Riley is such a great character, how this science is not too far in the future, how she thinks she’d do with a microchip in her own brain, and what she’s most proud of with the show.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.
