    The Listener

    I think no one has posted yet about this show about a mind reading EMT. It was on this Thursday on NBC. The hero is cute, and they seem to be trying to replicate the Hiro/Ando buddy relationship between him and his EMT partner. I'd watch it again, but I wasn't completely gripped. Quite a nightmare inducing main plot involving a teenage girl locked in a secret room in a storage locker. And what happens to her near the end...ugh.
    The hero seems to have doctor girlfriend with whom he has "issues" in part because he's always zoning out when he overhears something interesting. Plus there's an attractive female cop who does or doesn't take hints from him.

    I tried to watch it a couple of times but just couldn't get into it.
    I had the first two episodes on the PVR but ended up deleting them.

    I've seen both episodes. Both had trouble keeping my interest even though the story lines should have been interesting.

    I think a lot of the trouble is the main actor. He's attractive & seems nice guy enough, but speaks in a low tone & almost monotone.
    His relationship with the girlfriend, or whatever that medical gal is, is totally uninteresting too. NO chemistry whatsoever, & she never smiles. She just keeps this deadpan look on her face all the time. They're beyond boring together.

    The chemistry I see is with the cop gal. That's what they should be featuring.
    I also like the EMT partner/friend. The buddy part between the 2 of them is the best part of the show.

    I don't think this one is going to last long.

    I have watched all 3 episodes and I have to admit that I like this show. The first half hour seems to go a bit slow but it's the last half that grabs you. I totally agree that the doctor girlfriend is a boring character and the storyline need to go another direction.

    So far I've only seen one episode....the one where he comes out to his partner. Were there earlier ones?

    I watched this week & it's starting to grow on me. I really like the EMT friend guy.
    I just wish the main character would be a little more animated in his speach.

    I did the same thing..and I was excited because I am interested in all things strange/eerie.

    Oh well. I have a mind reader in sookie stackhouse anyhow!

    I found it has gotten better since he told his EMT friend about his abilities. His friend trying to get him to help him find a woman interested in him at the bar was cute.
