Scorpion Reviews — Fans React To Season 1 Premiere
Such a great premiere date for Scorpion! It debuted to an audience of 14 million viewers beat out TV giants, The Voice, Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, The Blacklist and DWTS.
If you — and by “you” I mean “someone other than Nina Tassler” — ever wondered, “What would The Big Bang Theory look like as a procedural?,” this is about it. It’s a grabby, fun premise, yet one that ultimately hinges on the cleverness of the fixes that Walter’s “Scorpion” team come up with each week.
The fast pace will probably feel thrilling to viewers with its men in black cars skidding on to the scene, a race through L.A. where all the traffic lights are green and a commercial plane that dips to 100 feet over a speeding sports car — all very, very cool to watch — kudos to one of the series’ executive producers and the pilot’s director Justin Lin (“Fast and the Furious” franchise) for pulling off all of the above (and then some).
Of the slate of pilots that will hit the airwaves this year, Scorpion is one of the few that are fully formed before the first frame rolls on screen. There’s no origin story or needless set-up or introduction among the team, all there is, is Walter and his friends trying to prevent a city wide disaster.
That being said the show delivers on what it’s trying to be, a fun and entertaining fast paced action drama. Something that in all honesty is not around on most of the major networks.
Fans of the new show also took to Twitter to show off their support!
