Intelligence: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Intelligence: Season 1 (2014)



Critic Consensus: Intelligence fails to live up to its name, with corny dialogue and overblown violence that cannot be rescued by its capable leading actors.

Tv Season Info

Season 1 of this action-packed spy drama centers on the U.S. Cyber Command unit and its star operative Gabriel Vaughn (Josh Holloway), who has a microchip implanted in his brain that gives him access to key intel information. In the pilot, Cybercom director Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger) recruits Secret Service agent Riley Neal (Meghan Ory) as Gabriel's partner and protector. Working together, they keep the world safe from those who threaten it, including terrorists, drug cartels and a rogue Army general. They also cross paths with a Chinese national named Mei Chen (Faye Kingslee) who's enhanced with a stolen chip that's similar to the one in Vaughn. On the personal front, Gabriel deals with the loss of his wife, Lillian has daddy issues, and an undercover assignment in Syria reunites Riley with her ex-boyfriend.

Critic Reviews for Intelligence: Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (20)

Lots of cartoon violence mixed with -- irony alert -- not enough intelligence.

January 6, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…
Top Critic

The series too often builds tension by drawing on the reasonable fear we have of terrorist attacks.

December 20, 2013 | Full Review…

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

February 3, 2014 | Full Review…

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

January 8, 2014 | Full Review…
Top Critic

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.

January 8, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

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.
