TV ratings for Monday January 06/2014:
I really like Hemlock Grove and OITNB. House of Cards just isn't my kind of show. Maybe I'll give it a second look though.
I'm really looking forward to Netflix 4 new Marvel series too.
Justified starts tonight! Can't wait to see Raylan , Tim, Boyd and the rest!

I found Intelligence kind of meh too -- but then I wasn't really anticipating much. It did get better by the end, though. At first I thought both the Megan Ory and Marg Helgenberger characters were unbelievably two-dimensional: the stock women-federal-agent characters, tough and emotionless to make it in a man's world. Ory got somewhat more developed as the episode went along, but Helgenberger didn't. But the whole mismatched buddy cop dynamic is just so over-done, I don't see this one adding much to the genre.
And the ending was eye-rolling:
Spoileras they were ending the standoff at compound I thought "C'mon, you're just going to leave that woman there with the chip in her head?" And what about Amos and all the other bad guys -- did they not get shot and/or arrested? WTF?
I'll give it one more week, but if it doesn't get better I'm out.
I enjoyed it, but then again I like the Bourne movies
Intelligence felt a little too video-gamey for my taste. Which I guess will appeal to the video-game crowd.

I skipped Intelligence to watch The Poisoner's Handbook on PBS; will try to catch pilot repeat on Friday...but it sounds like it's not my thing....may give it a couple of episodes.
Not sure about Intelligence. Didn't really like Gabriel, the supposed hero. I"ll give it some time.
I didn't last past the first 10 minutes of Intelligence. I did watch all of The Tunnel however (on FX Canada). I loved the original Danish/Swedish version of this show The Bridge and to a lesser extent the US version - I think I'm going to like this one as well.
I watched Intelligence and was not very impressed. The whole missing wife thingy is so formulaic it just had me rolling my eyes.
