... Just not right.
I usually do not write reviews as I generally do not care if someone agrees or disagrees with my opinion - and therefore do not engage in the effort of writing a review. However, this tv series sparked something that just encouraged me to write a small review. In almost every film or tv series, I can usually find something I enjoyed and/or found fascinating even when the majority of the plot (story line) was disappointing and/or poorly crafted. However, I found myself unable to go beyond the first few episodes of this film. It has nothing to do with the actors (or as addressed earlier - the age of the actors (and actresses). It has to do with the psychology. It is my understanding that the tv series shows some similarity to the tv series of Lie to Me and Mentalist (as mentioned in many professional and amateur reviews). However, this tv series misses the point by making every facial and body gesture of the characters exaggerated to point that it takes away from the minute changes in the facial expression and body language that reflect a behavior, emotion/feeling, and/or reaction. Furthermore, the explanations behind the gestures were portrayed in ways that made me feel like they were speaking to a 7 year old. Perhaps, if you have no prior knowledge of basic psychology and/or detective/crime than you might enjoy it. I just felt it was trivial. Once again, the poor review is not the fault of the actors and/or actresses but really comes down to the script. I really hate to give any film or tv series a poor review as every film/tv reflects hard work and devotion from all the people who created the film and therefore I could not bare to give the tv series anything less than 60%.
