  • good start

    It's hard to judge this pilot because I saw the fourth season before I decided to go back and watch the first. Anyways, the pilot always has to introduce the premise of the show and the characters. I didn't like how they introduced Don, but I liked how they introduced Charlie. The father didn't have much of a role and was pretty pointless in this episode. Larry was fine. The case was interesting, but nothing special. Just a serial rapist. What makes this show different is that Charlie uses math to catch the killer. It was interesting seeing his thought process and how he was angry when he thought it was wrong. Overall, solid start to the show.
