TV REVIEW: MINORITY REPORT (SEASON 1, EPISODE 4)

TV REVIEW

MINORITY REPORT

SEASON ONE, EPISODE FOUR- "Fredi"
Every week, I watch "Minority Report," and every week I am trying to find cool stuff in it.

I am trying to find some points of hope in this otherwise ordinary police procedure. There is one piece of hope. The subplot involving Agatha seems interesting, it is radically different from her character in the movie. But at least it is interesting. At least, its interesting so far. There is so much still in the shadows, but it seems like Agatha could end up being the big bad of this show, or at least this season. Like I said, I am not sure how much I like that prospect, but we will see how it materializes. 

So much of the rest of the show is so ordinary that I feel like I am watching a futuristic version of "Law and Order." I am glad they stopped playing the whole "Hey, remember THIS from the movie" game, but its just a gimmicky police show. One that is strictly pedestrian, one that doesn't embrace the challenging aspects of what they are setting up. I don't know if the show really wants to be anything challenging or different. Its well acted and well polished, its just missing a little zing of inspiration the show desperately needs.

I am losing hope in this one quick, so it better change for the better soon.

What did everyone else think?
