I watched the season premier on the recommendation of two friends who loved this show last season. Since I haven’t watched before, I have no frame of reference, nonetheless, if this episode is at all typical, yuck.
For starters, the plot was lame and unbelievable. The satire on the American Idol panelists was cartoon-ish and borderline slanderous. I think there is supposed to be some ongoing sexual tension between Harry and Jules, but there really didn’t appear to be.
The biggest disappointment was that this is supposed to be about a guy who uses “psychic powers” to solve crimes. But he never did. All of the solving was done by the same kind of close observation and ratiocination that has been the mainstay of detective fiction going back to Edgar Allen Poe.
I was sadly disappointed.
