Not so bad...Good for killing some time!
Well..what can I say...the concept seems familiar, kinda like Japanese version of "NUMB3RS" with bit of "manga-style" comic relief on it. A rookie detective Utsumi Kaoru(Shibasaki Kou)teams up with a genius physicist and university associate professor Yukawa Manabu(Fukuyama Masaharu)a.k.a Detective Galileo to solve mystery crimes. If you like serious American drama types like CSI then you probably won't like it, but it certainly does have some interesting concepts. This drama is based on Japanese mystery novelist Higashino Keigo's short novel "Tantei Garireo" & "Yochimu". This drama series contents 10 episodes, so it's pretty easy to finish up, unlike "NUMB3RS" that tends to drag too long with repetitive mathematical formulas and crap about "It's all about numbers" line.
