    It's...
    Some of the best advice I ever heard was to never, ever watch a show that has anything to do with your area/s of expertise because they always get it wrong.

    Haven't watched this ep yet- I was looking to see how good everyone thought it was.

    The casting choice is the key bit of information that makes the whole series make sense. They finally decided to bring back Enterprise, the chip is 22nd century technology, and yes Dr Phlox can do brain surgery in an hour with the proper tools.

    Captain Archer is probably under deep cover, cosmetically altered to look like Sawyer from Lost.

    Hmmm...good thing there's no demand for shows about CPAs and CFPs. :)

    The traitor was knocked out. And the good guys had at least as good communication available to them as the traitor (they should have known where the hero was already, due to his chip, right?). And the entire agency was looking for them, so obviously they would have gotten there before anyone the traitor might have called when he woke up.

    I'll give it another episode, but Bravo, Things 3 and 4, and I were not impressed. My wife is hanging on for Sawyer and I just want his SS handler to start dressing better - like she does on Once Upon a Time would be good.

    Then shouldn't you be rooting for "Intelligence" to get cancelled quickly so that Meghan Ory will go back to "Once Upon a Time"?

    My girlfriend and I had a discussion about this. I pointed out that I almost never see an actor and actress appearing in more than one series at a time. She thought she had, but couldn't recall any specific instances...

    Is there something in the contracts that prevents them? or is the schedule just too demanding?

    I too would prefer to see her on Once Upon a Time. It's not just the outfits. The character itself is far more interesting.

    Sad part is, these days it would mean I couldn't watch any TV or movies since computers and related tech is everywhere! :)

    I usually just go with and that works for about 99% of the time!

    I read somewhere that Ory said she's open to reappearing on "Once Upon a Time" if she can fit it into her schedule. But I imagine it would be basically as a guest star or even cameo.

    (A long time ago, Heather Locklear co-starred on "TJ Hooker" at the same time she was part of the ensemble cast of "Dynasty.")

    As for Ruby/Red being more interesting than Riley Neal, well, so far at least, just about EVERY character on "Once Upon a Time" is more interesting....but then again, "Once Upon a Time" is my favorite show on air right now.

    I just assume TV happens in an alternate parallel universe where computers are totally different from ours. Both much better and much worse, at the same time, depending on what is needed by the plot. :p

    Dean Norris in Breaking Bad and Under The Dome on at the same time as well as a week or so of overlap with the Michael J Fox show for Betsy Brandt. I would think its more a scheduling thing though than a contract issue since the actors have no control over when shows air. The way they broke up the last season of Breaking Bad would have meant virtually nobody could work for a long time. Ted Danson was in like 4 shows at once I was watching 2 or 3 years ago. The guy that played Quark form DS9 also in Buffy at the same time. Alison Brie I think, kinda sorta. Maybe not. If cartoons count there are tons of crossovers as far back at least as Jim Backus did Gilligan's Island and Mr Magoo.

    I have it on the Tivo but haven't watched it yet. From the promos, I keep getting a 'is this Chuck without the comedy?' feeling.

    Chuck was fun (and funny, but I mean fun to watch). And it made me want to watch. This, not so much.

    The actress who plays Annie on Community is also in Mad Men, so there are actors who appear in two series, but usually they aren't the stars.

    I agree with the consensus here. It was meh, and a little stupid. Right away there was dumb. The Josh Hollaway character rather than more quickly run around parked vehicles, in one instance slides through the front seat and jumps completely over another. Not that dumb can't be entertaining, so we'll see. I suspend belief with shows of this ilk quite often. I thought the dialog was a bit stilted and there seems absolutely NO chemistry between Josh and Megan.

    Still, it's generally the kind of show I like, so I'll give it another couple of episodes.

    This is not Chuck, and I don't think it ever tried to be. I think it compares more with S.H.E.I.L.D than it does Chuck.

    There is no way there is a backdoor in SHA-2. It's too well-studied. Even the flaws that the NSA exploited/exploits in the random number generation were known well before Snowden leaked them. It might be the case that there is a backdoor in some specific product or tool or virus which could nullify the encryption. In any case, the words (in the show) were uttered by someone who was probably lying anyway -- or at least had no motivation to be telling the truth. Also, it's a TV show. I have a hard time complaining about this one aspect of a show that is so far-removed from reality that my wife rolled her eyes and complained about it. This is my wife, who never cares about such things, EVER.

    I meant more the premise than the execution. He's got technology in his head that lets him do amazing stuff, and a pretty female handler to protect and watch over him
