| This show doesn't waste time with details
I think this show has tons of potential, although I like it just the way it is now. I mean it has the potential to last several seasons, and I hope it does.

Other reviews have given the basic info on what the show is about - a sci-fi crime show starring a bunch of smart young people, sort of like NCIS meet Dr. No. The producers use a sort of TV shorthand: instead of a long, complicated back story, the Federal agency that "recruits" Kristin is merely described as "you can't guess what it is", or words to that effect. Why waste time on yet another series of flashbacks and explanations? We all know what they're talking about. Some of the other reviewers are bothered by the impossibility and "scientific" inadequacy of the work space where the corpses are kept on hand for the stitching process. Again, so what? We've been watching Star Trek and Dr. No for years without worrying about it - the flashing lights and dim floating bodies are all one needs to get it; this is a science fiction detective show, for heaven's sake.

I really like the way the geeks, including Kristin and her abrasive roommate, Camille, communicate. Along with the boys in the lab, they are unapologetically smarter than most of the rest of the humans in the world, and don't bother with the cutesy salutes to normal people that some shows use to make smart people more accessible. House and Monk are both examples of exceptionally unlikable people who nonetheless obtained a loyal fan following based on how their characters solved problems, and I think the same will happen with this show.

I love the way some of the characters in this show zoom through pretty complicated dialogue with no explanation or apology, and call me crazy, but I thought Kristin's first experience stitching was gripping; the hyper- ventilation was a nice touch, and totally believable.

I say give them a couple of seasons to show their stuff; they certainly got my attention.
