The Irrational S01E05 720p WEB-DL x265
Didn't feel like a good start. Supposedly it is about behavioral analysis and forensic intervention. All, I saw was trauma-centered analysis and a suspect who had the ingenuity to circumvent what he did with a certain mental strength quickly drew the gun when Mercer was just talking to him. It did not have any quirky moments or interesting plot movement mechanics, Mercer even doesn't appear to be a memorable character. There isn't even a light-hearted joke. I believe the series lacks a specialist in behavioral psychology. The best option is just to prop-up Mercer as a psychologist, this way you can touch-up on many things as you intend to do it. Try to show his coping skills, and maybe make it a bit funny. Even if you don't want to, try to do something funny, because the current formula for the series is dull and lethargic. Add a dollop of mysticism that could be seen in The Blacklist and a dollop scientific rigor shown in Bones.
