I love this show! but...
This is one of my favorite shows and I am so glad it got a second season. It is kind of like A Beautiful Mind. Watching the main character on screen never gets old and I look forward to new episodes more than any other show at the moment.
With that said, why not a 10 out of 10? One reason. the character Kate Moretti. yes, this one character is so bad that the show drops 3 stars. I do not know who to blame for this as the character is flawed in so many ways. She is quite possibly the worst character in any currently running show. The Actor herself has only one facial expression. She tightens one cheek and smirks. surprise? smirk. frustration? smirk. concern? smirk. she literally looks exactly the same no matter what the situation is. Now for the character flaws. The character brings nothing to the show other then her credentials as an FBI agent. Yes, the show is about Dr. Pierce and not Moretti but look at sub characters from other shows: Mentalist - Lisbon controls Jane. Sherlock & Elementary - Watson provides medical expertise. Bones - Booth is street smart. Castle - Beckett is equally smart and tougher than Castle.
but Moretti...after the pilot episode she brings nothing. she doesn't even try to solve the cases on her own. she follows him around like a preschooler letting him solve the case while she stands there awkwardly. she could at least take out a note book or cross her arms once in a while. Shes more like his chauffeur. her entire character from the screen write to the actor is horrible. the character is so bad she should be tapered off to once or twice a season instead of every episode.
