After a weak start, the show has found its voice and is telling the type of future tech stories that other procedurals can't.

Call yourself whatever you want, Intelligence. Just don't insult ours.

It's just fundamentally impossible to care about.

Somehow, the show works, and that's solely thanks to Holloway.

This new Intelligence insults ours.

The attempt to ground the show in reality feels unnecessary and not fun, because nothing here is all that unbelievable.

The series seems like it's been cobbled together from pieces of other shows and movies and resulting product is not equal to the sum of its parts.

While this procedural action-drama may seem like one of CBS's typical case-of-the-week shows, it certainly stands out thanks to its high-concept premise and likable leading man.

Maybe there's an audience for this kind of thing -- even though that audience would be better served watching Almost Human on Fox.

Sometimes the concept is enough and Intelligence may be just barely smart enough to be a hit.

A proficient if initially perfunctory action thriller that benefits immeasurably from its star's gruff, bluff machismo.

The idea of a man with the power of a computer in his brain isn't entirely new, but Intelligence offers a new, fresh, and realistic feel to the story.

Intelligence is refreshingly fun to watch.

The opener offers plenty of running, fighting and shooting, plus a spy-vs.-spy plot that's barely interesting enough to warrant the energy it takes to follow.

If only the creators of Intelligence could have rustled up a script that's up to the strength of its promise.

Intelligence has another thing in common with The Six Million Dollar Man - it's not concerned with how technology can affect the human condition. (This is a CBS procedural after all, and they're not known for introspection.)

The producers provide plenty of action, much of it triggered by the understandable fact that every enemy on Earth would like to get hold of Gabriel's microchip, or find one of his own.

It's like Fox's new sci-fi series Almost Human but without any of the fun trappings of the future.

The premise is an awful lot like another show I liked a lot better, i.e. Chuck. They're very different shows, but the premise of this one is close enough that I kept finding myself thinking that Chuck was so much better.
