  • This show is not one of my favorites. I find a great amount of overacting. There are also way too many times when theses "highly trained experts" do not get around to testing the most obvious thing until the show is almost over.moreless

    This show is not one of my favorites. I find a great amount of overacting. There are also way too many times when theses "highly trained experts" do not get around to testing the most obvious thing until the show is almost over. You can not expect me to think that I know what needs to be done and they don't. The actors might be able to adapt to new writers and maybe not.
