Scorpion- Mind Boggling National Threats Solved by a Band of Brilliant Misfits!

What I like to watch on cable TV are mystery/detective programs with crime scenes, horror and sometimes sitcoms and reality shows.

Scorpion is the kind of drama I'd love to watch as it is very interesting and fast paced and yet the characters are very relatable. Hello, geek here writing!

It has great production values and it doesn't insult the intellect! Rather, it challenges one to think- if one can- on a genius level. It also doesn't hurt that there's romance brewing among the leads early on. Comic relief and heart warming touches make it a complete package.


It starts when a group of soldiers landed on a farm house in Ireland and they are surprised to find that what they are looking for is a child- a whiz kid at that.

Scorpion was inspired by a true story. It is an exhilarating adrenaline rush following an eccentric genius and his  group of nerdy prodigies (so down on luck, at one point, one of them is being chased down by a car and thugs). Their team operates as a think tank formed by Homeland Security to solve the most dire and mind-blowing threats.
