The Irrational S01E01 720p WEB-DL x265
Ever since Tim Roth stopped playing Cal Lightman in Lie to Me (2009) I've been craving a smart psychologist fighting crime. Then came Perception (2012), but Erick. McCormacks character was just a tad too crazy. I had big hopes for. Mind Games (2014), but Christian Slater played an extremely annoying role, so it was cancelled as no one could stand watching it. Enter The Irrational (2023) where an expert in human behavior helps law enforcement. We are immediately exposed to his backstory, which I am sure we will futher explore in forthcoming episodes. The crime he solves in the pilot is okay. We are not as audience convinced that he's a genious (yet), but he does drop a few interesting tidbits from time to time. My wishlist for future episodes: Writes, take a look at "The Menalist" and "Lie to Me" and see if you can add a bit of that magic to the show. I will continue watching.
