Has anyone watched this yet?

I recorded it the other day and finally watched it tonight. It's pretty good.

There seems to be a really good set up that could make for GREAT character development.

I liked Baker in the Guardian....

But I can't stand these goofy titles like The Mentalist, The Closer, The Guardian, Hack.....I can't bring myself to watch this show because mentalist makes it sound like he's a cop with downs syndrom, which in all seriousness could be a compelling drama.....

TV dramas rarely survive when they are based on one person. Ensembles alwasy fair better....

I watched the first 20 minutes or so. It's pretty good. I might have to continue to tune in.

I refuse to watch it because it's borrowing too heavily from the concept barrel that is Psych (a comedy). And Psych was pitched to CBS before it got on USA, CBS thought it was a really stupid idea and passed... until they could make their own. Babylon 5/DS9 anyone?

I saw it and was pretty impressed with the show. Simon Baker pulls off the character pretty well.

Its a much more serious version of Psych, I enjoy both so it was a win win for me.
