I'm not one those people where a Tv show has to be bordering on high art to be good. I'm pretty forgiving of artistic license if the show is entertaining but Alert is a hot mess. You can feel the writers' room throwing everything at the wall to make the show interesting. The problems with this show are numerous. The characters have baggage they stop an investigation to talk it out. Like airlines they should have a baggage limit or pay a fee. The humblebragging. Characters have to list their achievements all the time. Most breakthroughs have to be explained for two minutes while forgetting they have 60 seconds to save a life. Inappropriate behavior. Two of the unit members are in a relationship. In one scene, they tell parents finding their child is their top priority and then go into closet to bang. One of the characters believes in past lives and mysticism, etc. But her behavior is meant to be quirky and cute when it's pretty offensive. In one episode, she asks to rub eggs on the parents of a missing child for good luck! WTF! The same character chewed out a person in a planning department for not being able to identify a property's address by the dimensions of a southeast facing basement. Yeah, planning departments don't work like that. There's a lot of technobabble on digital data manipulation that is designed to compete with CSI forensic technobabble. There's a lot of manufactured action scenes that are silly and just there for the drama. And I'm only scratching at the surface of the character and story issues this show has. The problem is no one is standing back from it all to keep their show from getting silly. The shame of it is there's a good show here if given the right attention.
