    6.0
    "Motive" attempts to bring something new to the modern murder-mystery TV series: the audience knows the killer and the victim but is kept in the dark about the motive. Although "Motive" promises an interesting premise for prime-time TV (albeit in a disturbing way: boasting that the "fun" of the show is finding out why someone is killed - as if that is "fun") but it falls short of being an interesting show. The main reason is because of the characters.



    The plot for the first episode "Creeping Tom" features something new (at least, I never heard of "creeping" before) but the show's characters are not interesting in the least. The lead character Angie Flynn (played rather flat-lined by Kristin Lehman) has a quirkiness about her but little depth; the way she jumps to the pitch-perfect conclusion on a whim did not serve the story at all either.



    I guess that's the trouble with basing a show on a gimmick; if people are only tuning in to know why something happens, the characters are going to get short-changed.moreless
